Today, we’re looking at another update for the OpenMediaVault NAS operating system. This is all that’s included in the most recent release from the team. Here’s what is new in version 6.1.7 and how to go about installing it on your DIY NAS.
It’s easy to pick up an enclosure from our best NAS collection and enjoy a brilliant experience with Synology, QNAP, and other brands. If you have the time and wish to learn something new, it’s possible to build your own DITY NAS and install an OS like OpenMediaVault.
OpenMediaVault is an OS that can be installed to run and manage the server. It packs a punch like those that run prebuilt enclosures. It has been around for many years, has a helpful community, and is based on Debian Linux, a stable and reliable platform for a NAS package.
Version 6.1.7 has been released which includes a few minor fixes.
What’s new in OpenMediaVault 6.1.7
- Update locale files.
- Fix reload loop bug on shared folder ACL page.
- Issue #1310: Store UI settings on the server as well instead of the browser only. Settings are stored in two separate profiles, desktop and mobile. Note, existing settings in the browser are not adopted. Thanks to jpspringall for his contribution.
How to install this OpenMediaVault update
Installing the latest version of OpenMediaVault on your DIY NAS couldn’t be easier. Follow these steps and you’ll be installing the latest release in no time at all:
- Log into OpenMediaVault.
- Go to System > Update Management.
Here you can check for and install available updates, as well as configure whether you want access to the OMV beta channel (not recommended for a live NAS).
