What an incredible announcement!!!
I have been having a poke arround on this and it’s very clear that IceWhale have been listening to the community feedback!

In my experience everything from IW has always been pretty polished and clean and this is no exception, even at this early stage :slight_smile:

The new Files app is amazing IMO and offers a lot more visability over the drives / files

I have also tested out the backup function using the Zima App from my laptop and it’s working great :slight_smile:

One thing i REALLY like is the built in remote connectivity using Zero Tier One…

I have tested this from my mobile phone using the ZTO app and it works amazingly. no speed reduction that i have noticed and gives simple access with little to no setup / configuration :slight_smile:

One thing i have noticed that was odd was the findzima also found a lot of other ‘random’ devices so i had to make sure i selected the correct one. (*Edit this has been resolved)

The current image also seems to be missing the Terminal BUT that can come later in the testing :slight_smile:


Regarding the findzima questions has been fixed.

Updated my post and as always IW team SUPER quick off the mark to get this resolved :slight_smile:

What is default login/password for ssh and smb protocols?

Default ssh login/password is root/testonly default port is 22, smb protocol is min protocol = SMB2

Hi, everything works reasonably well, but I don’t see any IP on remote connection. I installed Zerotier one app on my phone and added the network ID but it doesn’t connect. Is it a router issue? Perhaps I should open port 9993?

@Fido Hi, can you please provide me with what you did before you discovered this problem? We also found this problem on our side.
The cause of the problem is: zerotier-one automatically assigns a mismatch between the network segment and the gateway, which makes it impossible to separate the available ip for zimacube, which makes it impossible to access it through zerotier.
The command to determine if the network segment and gateway match is as follows: cat /var/lib/zerotier-one/controller.d/network/*.json

The temporary solution is as follows:

network_id=$(zerotier-cli listnetworks)
zerotier-cli leave $network_id
systemctl stop zerotier-one
cd /var/lib/zerotier-one/
rm -rf . /controller.d/
systemctl start zerotier-one

Thanks for your feedback, I hope this temporary solution works for you!

I just turned off the remote connection from the switch. Then I turned it back on and the IP address was no longer displayed. I solved it by reinstalling the OS.

A new big problem. Cutting and pasting archives have deleted all the archives.

Can u provide a video for us to reproduce the problem, I tried copying and cutting a single zip file and it doesn’t cause my other zip files to be deleted, thanks for your feedback

I have one copy of ZimaOS running on a Dell Optiplex 3050 and it is working great with no problems. My other version is on the ESXI 7.0 Server. It’s set up with 6 Core 16 GB RAM. The boot drive is 500 GB and is set as a passthrough. I created 5 500 GB virtual drives. I can’t find anything not working but I have a warning on the dashboard.

As you can see, I have also added 5 hdd’s to the pve and it shows no problems. The Damage you are seeing is provided by the Storage Manager data.
Can you provide us with your Storage Manager interface so that we can further troubleshoot if the problem is due to data inconsistency? Thanks for the feedback.

Will get that info for you later this evening when I am home.

@djtech Could you explain how you got it to work on ESXi? I can get it to boot, but it hangs at the init waiting for root device. (I have ESXi 6.5U2…)
