OpenMediaVault from softys - OMV Keyring

Recommended Posts

Today I gave OpenMediaVault another try  - because 2 of my "very" old NAS-Boxes (normally sitting on a cupboard) only support SMB v1 and I dont know how long my Synology DS109 will live.
Yes - I got 2 NanoPi Neo2 with NAS-Case, but for a test-ride I compiles stretch for the Cubieboard A10 (because of the SATA-Port).


While installing OpenMediaVault vis softys in armbin-config the install-script has to install the OMV Keyring.
The packages where downloaded 100% and then softys came to to line with the keyring and did break the "install-screen".
I did see any action from the Cubieboard :(
After a while I did press Ctrl-C and did reboot and tried to install again....but that doest work because the interrupted install routine before :(


After reading some websites I did give the A10 the command


and it promptes some error (seems the installtion of OMV wasnt completed) but it gave me the first solution!:
dpkg --configure -a


So I could see the A10 installing OMV and everything wnt fine.


The Keyring command seems to be like at the manual installation of OMV with debian
see at https://openmediavault.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installation/on_debian.html :

apt-get --allow-unauthenticated install openmediavault-keyring


but (my) armbian didnt like that, so I searched the web again and found
apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 7E7A6C592EF35D13 24863F0C716B980B

as command.... but armbian couldnt complete this without installing first dirmngr via

apt install dirmngr


Now I can suggest to use the following command prior to the OMV installation:
apt install dirmngr

apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 7E7A6C592EF35D13 24863F0C716B980B

After the test-ride with the Cubieboard A10 I did a second install on a Intel D525MW Mainboard with a Atom D525 (DualCore 1.8Ghz) and 4GB of Ram.
I installed stretch to a USB-Drive first and then after some configurations OMV via the install-script from


but without the line

apt-get --allow-unauthenticated install openmediavault-keyring

because I did install the keyring before the installation :)


At the D525 saving the OMV-Setting is much more speedy... 

I dont know why saving the setting does take so long with the Cubieboard A10

( had also this long savetimes some time ago while testing with other new/faster SBCs like NanoPi/OrangePI and RPis :( )

Who told you to do that? :D // It should be more verbose install and I don't know why it isn't. 


Das OMV arbeitet einwandfrei. I just did a quick test on http://ix.io/1vPo

yes it works fine ;)

I was to nervous after the install screen "break" after download package 194 of 194 and the keyring install doesnt did look right....


normally after download it starts with installing 1 of 194 :)
