OpenMediaVault on Debian

At the time of writing OpenMediaVault 0.6 is pre-release. But it is possible to install OpenMediaVault on Debian Wheezy in order to get some testing done.

Install Debian Wheezy on your target VM or test server. Go with the defaults until the 'Software selection' dialogue. Make sure everything is unselected, like this:

[ ] Debian desktop environment
[ ] Web server
[ ] Print server
[ ] SQL database
[ ] DNS Server
[ ] File server
[ ] Mail server
[ ] SSH server
[ ] Laptop
[ ] Standard system utilities

After the install is complete, reboot and login to the new Debian system as root.

Update the repository sources and add the contrib and non-free repositories.

nano /etc/apt/sources.list

It should look something like this:

deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free

# wheezy-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main contrib non-free

Now add the OpenMediaVault repository.

echo "deb http://packages.openmediavault.org/public kralizec main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openmediavault.list

Update.

apt-get update

Install the OpenMediaVault repository key and Postfix.

apt-get install openmediavault-keyring postfix
  • When the 'Postfix Configuration' dialogue is displayed choose No configuration.

Update again and install OpenMediaVault.

apt-get update
apt-get install openmediavault
  • When the 'Configuring mdadm' dialogue is displayed enter none.
  • Do you want to start MD arrays automatically? YES
  • When the 'ProFTPD configuration' dialogue is displayed choose standalone.

Initialise OpenMediaVault and reboot.

omv-initsystem
reboot

After the reboot you should be able to connect to the OpenMediaVault WebUI and login as admin with the password of openmediavault.

That's it. Get testing.
