    I have built 12 OMV6 Logitech Media servers now ranging from Raspberry Pi 4, Khards VIM3, Asrock motherboards, Odroid N2+.....and my favourite the Beelink U59. All work great. The U59 is brilliant and u can pick up one very cheap. I add 18TB drives and stream everything from these things. All running LMS 8.3

      Sean, I did a bit of reading about OMV and also about dockers. Spent a couple of hours running up an OMV server with the idea of replicating the VB /Storage structure. I referred to
      https://www.vortexbox.org/forum/supp...sd-data-on-hdd and got as far as setting up /Storage/Music so that a windows box can browse but at this stage can't write, there is a setting not quite right somewhere.

      Deleted my attempted how to - Sean has done it perfectly here - https://www.vortexbox.org/forum/main...=3735#post3735

        Hi there

        I never had to use logical volumes at all. No need to install that. Just build your OMV installation onto your small drive. Then plug in your new 18TB drive from new. It will be recognised and u can then format and set up as a share. Then share also via SMB as a service share.

          Sean,
          After building OMV6 file system I was reading all about dockers and revisited your write up here https://www.vortexbox.org/forum/main...=3735#post3735

          This time I read beyond page 1, you know the problem, real men don't read manuals.

          So, right now the test server is doing a LMS scan !

          Took a couple of goes to get the docker stuff right, I eventually made a copy of the "docker run -it" commands in notepad and edited them, getting the "absolute path" from the OMV6/Storage/Shared folders where the absolute path is displayed complete with a "copy" icon.

          Now for MusicIP and further setup of the LMS server.

            Well done. Install Portainer from the omv-extras menu (before you install change its port to 9010, or whatever. It's default is 9000, which clashes with LMS). From the Portainer control page GUI you can choose container templates. One of which is Transmission. There's also Airsonic and many others. Use the Advanced settings on the Portainer GUI to point Transmission to your shared drive and also to map the ports (9091 etc)

              It was well done for a while, now just "done".
              Portainer installed, port to 9010.
              LMS sort of running. This morning it was playing music, now it can't see the network or at least it can't see any players on the network and there are at least 4 powered up to see.

              I got MIP running, you can see it on port 10002 and get it to scan and create a test mix but LMS can't see it - Slim::Plugin::MusicMagic::Plugin::initPlugin (155) Can't connect to port 10002 - MusicIP disabled.

              Music IP docker run -
              docker run -d \
              --name=musicip \
              -e PUID=1000 \
              -e PGID=1000 \
              -e TZ=Australia/Sydney \
              -p 10002:10002 \
              -v "/srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-69e79226-b7b9-40c0-bf24-70c612e633d7/Storage/Music":"/music":rw \
              -v "/SSD_Data/MIP":"/config":rw \
              --restart unless-stopped \
              ptoulouse/musicip


              Off to bed, had grand kids here all day.

                Success, LMS and MIP working together - had to add -- network host \ to LMS docker run -

                docker run -it \
                -v "/SSD_Data/LMSconfig":"/config":rw \
                -v "/srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-69e79226-b7b9-40c0-bf24-70c612e633d7/Storage/Music":"/music":rw \
                -v "/srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-69e79226-b7b9-40c0-bf24-70c612e633d7/Storage/Music/playlist_linux":"/playlist":rw \
                -v "/etc/localtime":"/etc/localtime":ro \
                -v "/etc/timezone":"/etc/timezone":ro \
                -p 9000:9000/tcp \
                -p 9090:9090/tcp \
                -p 3483:3483/tcp \
                -p 3483:3483/udp \
                --network host \
                lmscommunity/logitechmediaserver:8.3.0


                Could only see 1 player after removing and then adding the docker, but getting MIP working is a bonus. An hour later all the other players are being seen..

                For info, the computer has 2 disks, a 120GB SSD and an 8TB data disk for /Storage. I have the LMS config - logs, conf and cache and the MIP default.m3lib on the SSD.

                I install Debian 11 first, taking the partition the root disk option and give the OS 60GB, then in the install optional software I untick Gnome and tick XFCE and SSH, then after Debian is going I use the web search for "install omv6 on debian 11" and install OMV6 by copying the appropriate command to a terminal session as root. Then back to the web search for "OMV6:new_user_guide" , open it and scroll down to OMV-EXTRAS, copy the wget and install.

                In OMV6 I add the sharerootfs plugin and configure a share as SSD_Data. Remember, anything stored in SSD_Data will be wiped on a re-install of the OS.

                Now to attempt PLEX.
                PLEX is a no go, doesn't start - google plex libusb_init failed docker - and there are lots of posts. Bummer as my TV has a PLEX app on it.

                docker run -d \
                --name=plex \
                -e PUID=1000 \
                -e PGID=1000 \
                -e VERSION=docker \
                -e TZ=Australia/Sydney \
                -v "/SSD_Data/PLEX":"/config":rw \
                -v "/srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-69e79226-b7b9-40c0-bf24-70c612e633d7/Storage/TV":"/tv":rw \
                -v "/srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-69e79226-b7b9-40c0-bf24-70c612e633d7/Storage/Movies":"/movies":rw \
                --restart unless-stopped \
                --network host \
                lscr.io/linuxserver/plex

                Anyone know a version of PLEX that works ?

                  The easiest way to install PLEX is probably to just use Portainer. PLEX is one of the install options within Portainer (along with Transmission, Airsonic etc etc. Just open the Portainer GUI. Go to the 'Settings' page and change the default json template URL to https://raw.githubusercontent.com/na.../template.json

                  Save that setting then go to the App Templates tab. You will see PLEX listed as one of the available templates. Lots of other useful ones too. All you need to do is click on the PLEX template and just edit the ports/volumes etc to match with how you want to configure your setup (use the 'Show Advanced Options' on the Portainer template install page). Its as simple as that. No need for any scripts

                    How difficult is it to install LMS and BLISS on the OMV platform?
