It is not often I talk about technologies that has been improved upon, but with the disaster called FreeNAS 8.*, the discovery of OpenMediaVault is a breath of fresh air!  Go check it out, WAY BETTER than any of the free NAS/SAN SW out there!

My first tip:

Changing your mountpoints:

  1. Open a terminal (ssh enabled)
  2. edit (I use vi after installing vim – “apt-gen install vim”) /etc/openmediavault/config.xml and look for <mntent> tag.
  3. change <dir>…</dir> tag to your mountpoint.
  4. edit /etc/fstab and look for the line with the <dir>value you changed in step 3.
  5. change this to your mountpoint.

reboot the system and it will stick.

I do not know if this will survive upgrades, but just keep a note.
