[SOLVED] Sync issue between mount and OMV shares


Feb 26, 2021
I'm having some sync issues. Currently I'm mounting my HDD drives (ntfs) in my node with the command mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sde2 /mnt/disk1 which works fine and everything mounts. I also have a OpenMediaVault VM running which shares these drives (or folders) on my network so I can access them on my PC.

Now, the issue is, when I copy files, create folders in proxmox in the mounted folders, I would have to restart OMV for those changes to reflect. Vice versa, if I create folders on my external PC on the shares I would have to remount the drives on proxmox to see the changes there. Anyone any idea why this happens? Or should I be mounting the drives differently? I also tried to auto-mount the drives by putting the code in fstab, but this doesn't work either, so I'm guessing I'm maybe mounting the drives wrong?

I also did try auto mounting inside fstab. Which I did with this line /dev/disk/by-uuid/A47AD18D7AD15D1C /root/test ntfs rw,auto,users,exec,nls=utf8,umask=003,gid=0,uid=0 0 0 which also mounts the disk, but the same syncing issue happens with OMV. Changes made on proxmox don't reflect on OMV until I reset the VM.

In the OMV VM they are passed trough with

Alright thanks. Yeah, I found that because it's 2 OS systems one doesn't know from the other. So I guess I'll for now just stick with cifs shares.
