OpenMediaVault 0.5 (Sardaukar) released

Today i am proud to release OMV 0.5 (Sardaukar) after a long time of development. The following changes and new features have been implemented:

  • Complete refactoring of the backend. The main processing unit/engine has been relocated into a forking daemon process.
  • IPv6 support.
  • Upgrade WebGUI to Sencha ExtJS 4.2.x.
  • Configuration changes are not applied immediatelly, instead the user must press the green button in the upper right corner (beside the language combobox) to do this.
  • Add new panel in the ‘System – Network’ section to configure Zeroconf/Service Discovery.
  • Add option to enable AIO support for SMB/CIFS. AIO is enabled by default.
  • Do not execute a filesystem check during boot on USB devices.
  • Mantis 0000472: Add ability to configure notifications.
  • Mantis 0000634: Provide a way to see changelogs of available package upgrades before installing.
  • Mantis 0000661: Rsync server on OpenMediaVault does not send user/group info.
  • Add ability to enable/disable scheduled S.M.A.R.T. tests.
  • Add ability to initiate a S.M.A.R.T. test via WebGUI.
  • Display a information dialog after the RAID has been created.
  • Set swappiness to 30 by default.
  • Improve collectd IO issue.
  • Many other improvements …

The API documentation for OMV 0.5 is available here.

The ISO images can be downloaded here.

You can upgrade existing systems via CLI. Please note that this is only possible if you have installed the following plugins below, other (3d party) plugins may not be migrated to 0.5 until now and will corrupt your installation.

  • openmediavault-clamav
  • openmediavault-forkeddaapd
  • openmediavault-iscsitarget
  • openmediavault-ldap
  • openmediavault-lvm2
  • openmediavault-netatalk
  • openmediavault-nut
  • openmediavault-route
  • openmediavault-usbbackup

To upgrade a 0.4 (Fedaykin) system to 0.5 (Sardaukar) you have to ensure your system is using 0.4.36 or greater. If not, use the WebGUI update management or the following CLI command:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

After that you can upgrade your system to 0.5 using the following command:

omv-release-upgrade

Thank you to all translators helping to translate the WebGUI into several languages. Further thanks goes to all forum moderators for their help on answering questions from the community.

    Hi Volker
    Remember, i’ve contacted you for a problem to upgrade 0.3 to 0.5.
    Since, I’ve installed two OMV 0.5 in x86 (one Home and one Office) and these were OK. Thank’s for your help.
    But today, i’ve same problem: “Error #0…” only on the first (Home, which has 2.6 To data!).
    How can i resolve this problem without lose data?

    Yeah, the new menu is pretty sad and not as nice as the previous one. The coloured items helps a lot on the user experience being more quickly found.
    Even if that gives more work to be done it’s something very worth to have on. Just make a survey and you will find out easily people prefernce for the previous type of coloured menu.

    volker,

    thanks for excellent product !

    is the OMV 0.5 based on updated Debian 6.0.7 ?

    this has drivers for HP Gen8 servers – HPSA – storage controllers – thus can support a large array of enterprise hardware based on p420 controllers

    Thanks for your great work. I’d like to upgrade to 0.5, but I need OpenVPN up and running. Do I still have to wait?

    • volker

      3d party plugins are currently not migrated, so you have to wait (if they are ever migrated) or you have to setup the required tools yourself.

    > Please note that this is only possible if you have installed the following plugins below

    I only have one or two of those plugins installed and no third party plugs. This should be fine to upgrade to then right?

    • volker

      This is not available for 0.5 at the moment because this is a 3d party plugin which has not been migrated until now.

    • volker

      I know that it does not meet everyone’s taste, but it takes its place in the new flat and simple design style.

    Thank you so much! The update worked great and until now I don’t have any problems! Keep going with this amazing distribution! :)

    Admittedly this is in a VM, but it seems like the upgrade procedure doesn’t work all that well, as I get the following once I’ve run the omv-release-upgrade command:
    Error #0:
    exception ‘Exception’ with message ‘Failed to open file js/omv/NavigationPanel.js.’ in /usr/share/php/openmediavault/htmlpage.inc:42
    Stack trace:
    #0 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/htmlpage.inc(49): OMVHtmlPage->scanFiles(‘js/omv/Navigati…’, Array)
    #1 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/htmlpage.inc(70): OMVHtmlPage->scanFiles(‘js/omv/module/a…’, Array)
    #2 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/htmlpage.inc(186): OMVHtmlPage->scanDir(‘js/omv/module/a…’, Array, true)
    #3 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/htmlpage.inc(112): OMVWebGui->getJavascriptIncludes()
    #4 /var/www/openmediavault/index.php(37): OMVHtmlPage->render()
    #5 {main}

    Any ideas on how to fix that?

    Cheers

        same has happened to me

        Error #0:

        #4 /var/www/openmediavault/index.php(37): OMVHtmlPage->render()
        #5 {main}
