after long and hard issues whit freeNAS and then OMV i’ve discovered Rockstor
,i explain as i can ,bacause mi english i’ts …erm…
i work in an apple assistance all the clients are apple (macbook, imac, macpro ,imac retina etc)
on my archlinux i used BTRFS years and years ago … i follow the project for a long time, but then not more, now i have seen much more features are avaiable!
the NAS i’ts OK the AFP support it’s OK, the configuration it’s RAID5 + installation disk (320gb) formatted whit simply partitioning /root /home /boot (ext4 …) and /var
i MUST have just one subvolume of the / … [question: can the snapshot of the 320gb disk of / stay in the space of a flash disk ? 2gb … i think yup if i remember]
my problem is this: every time i try to make a snapshot of / i receive an error that it’s not allowed to make a snapshot of /
eg. if a try
btrfs subvolume snapshot / /home/usb-snap/ If you don't provide a name btrfs will use the name of the source subvolume. In your case the source subvolume is called / which is not a valid name for the snapshot
how can i do this?
i just need ONE snapshot of the root filesystem , the Json config it’s saved on vfat usb key and putted into the rack, (as extrema ratio) , but i want the snapshot of the root filesystem, and then recover the system from that snapshot if the system disk will want to dead. i hope you understand me.
thx in advance
edit: right now i haven’t the server whit me, it’s in the rack @ work , i provide to use your reply when the reply ( if somebody want to reply @ this ever of every question) will ready, and i can try on the server, see yah
