you know why i write this BLOG?
because my memory is so bad that i not remember if i tested that already or not...

if you have a older unused ?RPI 3B+?
and wonder what to use it for, a NAS might a good idea..
here i try to setup a NAS with Open Media Vault on a RPI.

-1- setup a RPI4 with a pure linux ( called raspberry OS LITE )
get it from download

-2- burn with ETCHER and add on boot a file 'ssh'

-3- boot in RPI and find IP ( i use mobile FING app )
and use putty (like Bitvise SSH Client ) to login

-4- setup RASPIOS
** change password
** change name to 'RPINAS'
** changed to fix IP (ethernet) (wifi (200))
sudo nano /etc/dhcpcd.conf and add at end:

interface eth0
static ip_address=
static routers=
static domain_name_servers=

interface wlan0
static ip_address=
static routers=
static domain_name_servers=

** installed MC to find my way around the uSD drive.
( i used a 8GB for test, also with the idea that for the NAS FILE STORAGE a add USB drive makes more sense anyhow,

and follow manual
from section: 'raspbian updates and upgrades'

-5- setup OMV
wget -O - | sudo bash

well at end of the installation it try reboot? ( putty disconnected ) but never connected again.
i had to format the uSD card, my mistake? must use 16GB card?
ok, i did try again with a 32GB uSD card on RPI3B+ and WiFi only,
and the installation looked better,
but again, after reboot, SSH login and webserver not come up.
local login worked, i see 26G/29G free
and a startup error timeout.

-6- use OMV
from your network with browser call IP
and login with
