First of all - due to the crapy data throughput of the Raspberry Pi you should not expect high performance data transfer. A 1GB file will take ~20 minutes to be transfered.
That said lets dive directly into the setup.
- sudo rights on your working station
- external hard disks (one or more)
- OpenMediaVault image for your Pi
Install OMV OS
- Insert the SD card onto your computer
- Get the device name of the SD card - should be something like: /dev/disk2
➜ ~ diskutil list /dev/disk2 (internal, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *31.9 GB disk2 1: Windows_FAT_32 boot 58.7 MB disk2s1 2: Linux 3.5 GB disk2s2 3: Linux 67.1 MB disk2s3
- Open the terminal and open the folder where you downloaded your OMV Os to.
- Unzip the file:
- Now you need to unmount your SD card an install the img (be sure you substitue /dev/disk2 with your device name of the SD card):
sudo diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk2 sudo dd bs=1m if=omv_3.0.24_beta_rpi2_rpi3.img of=/dev/disk2
- Put the SD card into your Raspberry Pi and start it - but make sure the external hard disks and the ethernet cable are connected
- Now you’ll be prompted with the login:
raspberrypi login: root Password: openmediavault
- Get the IP address of your Raspberry Pi (ifconfig):
root@raspberrypi:~# ifconfig eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr b8:27:eb:f0:ea:18 inet addr:***.***.*.** Bcast:***.***.*.*** Mask:***.***.***.*
- On your workstation you can open a webbrowser and as url type: http://[your-ip]
- The default weblogin is:
Username: admin Password: openmediavault
- The first thing you should do is to change the default password to something secure:
