>IF YOU WANT PURCHASING ADVICE:
READ THE FAQS!
State your BUDGET.
List OS and software.
State storage/raid and # of disks.
List hardware features (low power draw, 10G Ethernet, etc)

>Why should I have a homeserver?
/hsg/ is about learning and expanding your horizons. De-botnet your life. Learn something new. Serving applications to yourself, your family, and your frens feels good. Put your /g/ skills to good use for yourself and those close to you. Store their data with proper availability redundancy and backups and serve it back to them with a /comfy/ easy to use interface.

>How should I get started?
Most people get started with NAS. It’s nice have a /comfy/ home for all your data. Streaming your movies/shows around the house and to friends. Know all about NAS? Learn virtualization. Spun up some VMs? Learn networking by setting up a pfsense box and configuring some vlans. There's always more to learn and chances to grow. Think you’re god tier already? Setup openstack and report back.

>What do I hoard?
Movies, music, books, porn, anything and everything you like. If you are looking for things to hoard check out >>>/g/ptg they have a list of various trackers for everything under the sun.

>Why Hoard?
Things that are online today might not be online forever. It's good to have a copy of something because you never know when it might get taken down due to copyright strikes or Big Tech censorship.

Is Synology basically Linux at its core?

I want a just werks NAS but I'm already tired of Linux, had enough of it. I'm tired of Linux filesystems clashing with Windows. Latest problem: got OMV on a RasPi working. Ok cool. Should probably backup the OS, image the whole disk. Windows can't read the main partition. Have to resort to shifty chink software. Either they can read it but won't let me create a basic .img because they want to upsell features, or they can read but make the image in some gay proprietary format (again to lock me in), or they can't even read it properly even though they promise to. The best I found was DiskInternals's Linux Reader, but still it gave me a .dsk file (wtf am I supposed to do with that)? Win 32 Dsk Imager or whatever the official OMV guide recommends, I don't even understand how it works. Eventually I use the OMV backup plugin/extra from within OMV, but again it gives me a bunch of Linux files that I have no idea what to do with, see pic related. (And no I do not want to have a Linux computer/partition ready just to do small jobs like this, nor do I want to boot into a live Linux distro for small jobs like this. I just want to be able to backup/image the whole MicroSD card OMV is on in case it goes kaputt one day, within Windows, and then quickly just 'burn' the result to another MicroSD card and resume oprations normally and affortlessly.

So at this point I'm either thinking of Synology or a dedicated Windows computer and use Windows Storage Spaces. But is Synology at its heart also Linux? Can it serve NTFS formatted drives? Can it make an NTFS formatted RAID?

Apart from firmware updates which are automatically you don't worry about that with Synology.
>But is Synology at its heart also Linux?
Yeeees.
> Can it serve NTFS formatted drives?
You may connect such shit over USB for example.
>Can it make an NTFS formatted RAID?
It doesn't matter. Stop thinking in stupid terms like Windows.
I am a core Windows user, but just fucking format it EXT4 and ever forget about Filesystems for your entire life.
I just doesn't matter!
Make it a RAID-1 or 5, 6 for all I care.
You cannot even see it is Linux inside the clicky-UI.
You cannot see it is not NTFS in Explorer. The network share looks like any other directory.
You have much faster transfers if you give up a dead legacy FS like NTFS.
You will never see it was EXT4.
>>
>>80312687
Backup everything.
>>
>>80312529
it doesn't matter which filesystem anything is using. you're approaching the problem in a retarded way.
you should be using the pi to do its own backups to whatever storage you have connected. for example you can run omv in docker on the pi and do automated backups.
storage spaces is fine, and is more idiot-proof than linux. if you like windows, it's a good solution.
synology is the most idiot-proof of them all. if you want to set and forget, just get a synology nas. it runs linux, but you'll never see it if you don't want to.

Update time: In case anyone was using or planned to use them. I've been using 8TB x 6 seagate barracuda drives (5400 rpm) in my freenas server since dec 2019. Except for only a few hrs of down time due to power failures (server's on a ups so no damage;clean shutdowns) it's been on constant 24/7 ever since. No data errors nor any smart errors reported. Course your mileage may vary; they could've changed the manufacturing process or a bad batch may slip through but on the whole the seagate drives thus far have done me very well.
>>
How do I access my files in a clean, safe and secure matter?
NFS and Samba with their fig-leaf security are good enough only for local network (even if nfs shits its pants sometimes and samba is awfully hard to configure), but I finally got myself a domain name for my under-the-bed server, and now want to get to my data from the outside as well. Maybe hook my parents' phones to "cloud storage" while I'm at it.

damn. thanks.
>>80312694
it's all good to forget about until i want to change something. i use a laptop right now. one of the main reasons i want a NAS. but maybe soon i'll make a big ass cutom desktop, and want to move those drives into my big ass desktop because i can now, no more nas. but oh wait no i can't because they're ext4. rather than giving freedom, this is locking me in. then i have to buy more drives and offload the datato NTFS formatted drives. im not at the end of my computer journey desu, im at the beginning, i dont know what im gonna end up with. all i know so far is im sticking with windows as my main user OS. i can just do the most things with it. with linux im so cuked out of the box. i know free as in freedom, but balanced against lack of software, lac of just-werks-ness, drivers, so overall it makes my computing life worse. and don't kid yourself, kid, between systemd, and every intel and amd chip being backdoored by nsa/mossad, youre not really getting more privacy. if youre a person of interest, they will spy on you computer activities no matter what. windows or linux is irrelevant to them. if you have anything to hide, don't do it online, in fact probably don't use computers at all for it.

>>80312857
like i said above im in flux, dont know what my final solution (oops) is gonna be, so i need that flexibility, in the context of / around the fixed fact of im using windows as my pc OS.

A big Synology costs around the same as a custom desktop, maybe more, so I think I might as well get a custom desktop and use Windows network shares and Storage Spaces for any RAIDs I want.
Now it's just a matter of building a giant desktop to fit 10 or more 3.5" drives but with a super low power laptop tier chip like a Celeron or a Pentium.
And if the plan doesn't work out it won't be a total waste, I can still use the case and whatever other internals I already have, just get a new chip + motherboard and turn it into a proper modern powerful pc.

Keep 3 copies of important data. The most cost effective way and the easiest (least for me) was as follows; Three freenas servers. A,B,C. A is my primary. It does everything, plex,nextcloud,transmission,etc. It's data storage is on a raidz2 array. B is a backup target for A via replication. It holds everything on A except for backups of clients,next cloud data,and downloaded torrents. C is another backup target. It holds the core data from A via rsync. In a nutshell pretty much everything that can't be replaced or would take me a shit load of time to replace is backed up in triplicate. B and C servers storage is Raidz1 due to the fact they are not on 24/7. A is, thus I wanted it to be hardened to the point I never want to touch B and C unless A just dies totally. Next cloud data is just photos from our phones which is also backed up to google's servers (along with contacts). I also use snapshots (aka previous versions). It allows say file recovery in case of accidental deletion. Works with windows explorer so you never have to touch your backups. All 3 servers are on a UPS to boot.

I need help. I use TrueNas. In order for Docker to work, I have to use Rancher OS in a VM. I'd like to run scrutiny in a docker, but it doesn't detect my HDD's. "smartctl --scan -j" turns up empty. I don't know how I can expose my HDD's to the VM so that it sees them. Is it even possible?
>>
>>80313220
Atm Im not using any RAID. I know there is lock-in with that too which is why I haven't created one yet. Still experimenting, don't know where I'm going to land. So can't commit to that yet, still need flexibility. I am just using individual drives for now. Once I'm confident in my setup (let's say a period of 2 years without any changes), I'll build a RAID.
The only constant is Windows as my PC OS.

It's incredibly easy to fill up once you start collecting -anything- in mass.

Honestly, 100TB today is like having 1TB in 2001. If you have Fiber, you can fill 100TB in 10 days. 2TB isn't even worth putting in my server.

Easy fillers:
- Series/Movies collection
- Video game collection (PS3/PS5 ISO's,etc)
- Doujin/Manga collection
- FLAC music
- Siterips in general

Heh, I'm good on free space for a while. Still got almost 11TB to fill before I run out. Should last me a few years.

>but I don't want over network

internal loopback is ez modo

Someone can still say this is dumb until they provide a better idea overall. I am giving you long term solutions.
Also this would mean your shares and your VMs can be on different servers, just as a spark why this could be good for redundancy and independence.

Encoding is as simple as:
Just get the quality-time-size-tradeoff that is most "balanced" to you. One could just 1:1 the DVD or BD with MakeMKV if they have near unlimited storage. Or do a quick H.264 rip/passthrough.

Generally, a server would be always on. If you're asking about attaching a drive over the network, there are lots of ways to do that, depending on what your needs are. You could also netboot something like this, or manage it with wake on LAN with your router. I'd start with leaving it on all the time.

Hell 65" is a common sight anymore in a lot of houses. Do the rips right the first time. Then you never gotta fuck with them again (re-dos) when you decide to dump your "small" 40 inch screen for a nice 100 inch screen (and cram it in a small ass apt for shits and giggles cause hey gotta keep up with the crowd and go blind right?)

That's a windows limitation. They do that under the impression you'll be using windows as the os on it. The default windows volume size is 16TB w/4k clusters. ZFS has no limitation. SATA itself doesn't give a rats ass.

i suppose if you hoard then sure but i don't see the point of hoarding movies/series when i can just grab them in 5 minutes. as for games, they obviously take up a lot of space but if you're only downloading games you'll actually play i doubt you'd have more than 6tb.

for me its:
porn - 450gb
games - 800gb (just console isos)
assorted backups - 350gb

Me either. I have 120TB and only like 500gb of it is movies/series. I used to hoard it in the past when I was a super pirate but I'm pretty content with Netflix/AmazonPrime now and just stream everything. I live alone so It's not like I'm ever watching it again.

>if you're only downloading games you'll actually play i doubt you'd have more than 6tb
The entire point in collecting is that it's more for preservation rather than yourself. everyone and their mom hoards series/movies so I find it a waste of time to save.

State actors don't really care about tuning into your PC like that anyhow. They'll have everything you transact with reported back to them. If you buy an ice cream with your credit card at the corner store, or take your car in for a tire change, or use your phone.

It's kinda laughable though about your external access security. Nobody gives a shit about your porn or your e-books. Nobody is gonna waste their time trying to brute in over that. Really what's most important is limiting the number of open ports and restriction of your wi-fi access. Cause the less open you make your system the more it flies under the radar unmolested by outsiders. I'm more concerned about my internet getting used by the punk bastard next door for who knows what than some random hacker brute forcing inside my server. Cause the punk bastard can do all kinda shit and who get's the blame? Me cause all the govt sees is my IP as the source.

I don't know what to do now.
- Keep downloading all of it, then slowly go through them all one by one over time and delete what I don't want, which might be most of it? That'll take ages. (i will seed back at least as much as i downloaded)
- Download it all, then disconnect the drive and keep it in cold storage. Have it, 'just in case'? (again, not before i seed back at least as much as i took). MAybe I'm just not in a horny phase right now but I will be again, undoubtedly
- Quit while I'm ahead, minimize my losses?
- Sell the equipment too?
- Keep the equipment, use it for something else? But it's kinda the same thing with anime, I don't want to hoard and waste my time watching it, I've watched a few animes in my life, they were neat but I think I've had my fill, I'm done.
- Could I use it in the future for a big family server? We live in different places though, we're not all under one roof.
- Delete this american shit but continue to download/hoard only JAV? JAV is better than (((american))) porn, less sickening, but even then I think I only crave it and like to watch my fav JAV cuties because ultimately I crave a cute azn gf, and I'm just using JAV as a crutch, a poor substitute for one. Maybe my time and effort and money should be invested into getting one of those instead of this?

Goddamn it, I really do find some of these pornstars really attractive, even the american ones. I thought I wanted to hoard just in case a giant totalitarian purging of all porn from the internet happened, I wanted to keep some of these cuties with me. But now I feel kinda sick and am thinking overall this wasn't worth it...wat do? /g/ + /t/, or /g/ + /s/...bad combination of interests...

regarding the porn, i'd suggest just deleting all of it. porn is not a valuable resource. people will continue to fuck themselves and each other in various ways until our species goes extinct. i'm not going to try and convince you that porn is evil, but it's nice not to have a secret porn hoard. go get your azn gf. there's like a billion of them, you can find at least one.

Depends on the specs. You might have something that's useful for high-reliability storage of other things (like for me, shooting photos in raw and dumping said photos on the NAS), or you might have something that's useful for doing work that you don't want taking up resources on your main computer.

Of course, you need to have something going on in your life for either of the above use cases to mean anything to you.

FreeNAS and ACL (now TrueNAS)

Sorry to bother but I'm swapping some drives and a new server and for some reason I can't get some drives with ACL to share with Samba so I can move the data.

I know I've run into this before, no idea why these 2 drives out of the 8 have ACL. And I know somehow I got them to share, but damned if I can remember how. Every other drive shares fine, but just the 2 with ACL like being dicks about it. And I've no idea why.

Anyone know a fix for this?

Is it safe to move my server (node 304, 6 3.5" disks) in a car? Will the vibration be a problem if I securely pack it without taking it apart (I might stuff the inside with foam or something, but it's not like there's a ton of room in the case anyway) or should I be transporting the HDDs separately?
Also enterprise drives are better at handling vibrations from nearby drives, right?

No problem with normally installed drives. Wouldn't try it with powered drives for safety reasons, but powered off they're robust.

>Also enterprise drives are better at handling vibrations from nearby drives, right?
Some of them have sensors and adjust their behavior, yes, but it's mostly against heavier vibrations of a large set of drives hitting harmonics. You probably can't mount enough for this to become a major issue and the case and its suspension might not be creating stronger vibrations anyhow.

Having ALC shouldn't matter. All my shares use ALC and they work just fine. This is my ALC setup for one of my shares. You should already have a user setup in TrueNas that has Samba Authentication. You should probably check to see how the share's ALC's are setup aswell.

Config was carried over from an a few versions ago of FreeNAS into to TrueNAS and the original server that came from was a pretty old verision of FreeNAS from way long ago. So maybe something went sideways. I'm also a bit off since the change of interface, its an improvement but I don't know where everything is now.

It was just a pattern I noticed where 6 drives immediately picked back up from the move to TrueNAS as network mounted drives in Windows 10 and the 2 ACL drives told me to eat it.

Seems the issue is a difference in how FreeNAS and TrueNAS did things.

In FreeNAS the share is /mnt/Disk4 and worked fine, but since TrueNAS views it as a root directory I can't change it or seem to access it. A dataset in TrueNAS would create a subdirectory like /mnt/Disk4/someshithere where ACL can be changed.

So fuck I've no idea now.

Any Synology users here?

I'm trying to figure out the best way of setting up file sharing for local linux hosts (both servers and desktops). I figured NFS was the obvious answer but I've run into the issue of synchronizing UID/GID for write permissions. As far as I can tell there is actually no way of controlling what UID a user on a Synology system gets. There are no tools installed to modify the UID of an existing user and changes to /etc/passwd are quickly reversed to whatever was originally set by the Synology software.

I don't have any LDAP/kerberos/AD set up and I'm not really seeing the need for it, I just want to make sure a few specific users on my servers can write to specific shares on my NAS. How do I do this? The easy way would be mapping all remote users to some user on the NAS with sufficient privileges but then it would seem I lose the little permission control I have. Another way would be adjusting every other host after the user and group IDs that the Synology system gives me, which seems very backwards to me.

How do you solve this in your network?
>>
>>80325605
just have the shares you want open to multiple users 0777, you could setup the cron job to flatten the permissions periodically as they create files only they have write access to.

Can you clarify what you mean by multiple users? My understanding is that a remote user (UID) that doesn't exist on the NFS server won't be able to read the contents of the NFS share even with a 777 permission on the entire share, so that would still entail creating a user with the same UID on the NFS server and the NFS client. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

>>80325726
Does that entail creating every single user (including system users running some service) on the directory server or do also you have local users for things that don't need permissions across hosts?

nah, the nobody user (if all attempts at mapping ids have failed) can still rw 0777 files and directories.
you could also do manual mapping in /etc/idmapd.conf on each of the clients, but if these are the uid's that you can't set or change continuously then you're shit out of luck. best you could do then is have the default mapping be root instead of nobody lol

Loving these threads.

So I've got a home server with old parts. Have an A10-5800k and no GPU, or a 750ti if I can be bothered installing it.

Only have 8GB of ram. Worth it to get more ram? It can handle 64gb, but it would be DDR3. Worth it or just upgrade it all to DDR4, newer CPU, etc.?

Also, software-wise. I store all kinds of crap on here, have around 50TB storage total so far. But most importantly is personal photos. I have mine and my wife's phone autosync photos here via syncthing, so if we ever drop phone down toilet or something we only lose a few hours worth.

Sometimes my wife wants to look back through the photos to pick a few out to make some art or something with, or send to relatives. She can ofc go on my computer and connect to the NAS by SMB, but then its a whole ordeal getting her setup on here. Is there a nice gui frontend thing I could setup so she can access it all via her phone, with photo previews and stuff. Almost as if she's connecting to a Google Drive or whatever normies use. I thought about nextcloud, but worried it's a bit bloated.

Fuck me, Firefox is saying my domain is still untrusted. systemctl says that Apache is running fine, and certbot didn't have any errors.
Where should I start looking?

What use does uses Kubernetes have?
I'm willing to try it for curiosity/learning sake, but what smallish project could I check out?

depends what you want to do i guess. you already have what, 3 devices, plus a pc on which you can create virtual machines and install pfsense on for free without extra hardware or the need of a new odroid h2. speaking for myself, i always try to spend as little as possible to learn stuff, but you do you, if you think you'll really put those things to use then do it but i suggest you to play with what you already have and prevent buying a new shiny thing you'll leave to catch dust on a shelf.
