I’ve spent 2 years on a PI. Got fed up of killing SD cards and slow reboots/map/logs/history.
Didn’t see the point in buying a NUC and then further down the road buying a Nas so thought I’d buy a home server and combine the both with OMV and the supervised install script (after doing a couple of weeks of research).
Now 2 months after having to learn how to use the various things I needed to get my head around to get my set up working as before (but much much faster) I’m told the method I used to install is no longer being supported and I’ll be on my own.
I’m simply not going to upgrade and have a think about how I’m going forward.
I appear to have 2 options:
Use the server as a Nas (bit of a waste) and go for a Nuc and go for the prebuilt image while keeping my fingers crossed it won’t become unsupported at the drop of a hat some time in the future with no warning.
Install proxmox or similar and use the unofficial install script, then work out how to use any resource not used by home assistant as the NAS manager…while keeping my fingers crossed it won’t become unsupported at the drop of a hat some time in the future with no warning (unofficial install script remember).
Either way it’s going to mean weeks more of me finishing work and after putting my daughter to bed, sitting on the laptop reading up on the best way to go forward after explaining to my wife we were finally in a good position and safe (bar the usual breaking changes) and if anything goes wrong I can easily ask for help from the team.
All with no warning.
