Nfs files not updating
With most of these boxes already rooted and open to all sorts of attack people even ruin their Android system by the use of tuning tools designed for smartphones....
And there are claims the some people got their box shipped with totally outdated firmware and no online update working.
There are a number of ways to accomplish this, one way is using scp at the ESXi command line.
SSH access has to be enabled on the host you are copying to (and on the host you are copying from if you are accessing it via SSH).
Having bought one of these X96 boxes last year I always wondered if or when there will be an update available.
With the thing running on Android 6.0.1 already I was not expecting monthly updates though.
scp path_to_file_to_copy [email protected]_or_remote_host_ip:path_to_new_file_location For example if you have an ISO named on the local datastore1 of ESXi-1 (192.168.1.25) and you want to copy it to the local datastore1 of ESXi-2 (192.168.1.201): scp /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/[email protected]:/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/You will be prompted for the root password of the remote host and once you have successfully authenticated the file will copy.
And of course not every firmware comes in a format the X96 can use right away.
The XFS file system can also be defragmented and enlarged while mounted and active.
In addition, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 supports backup and restore utilities specific to XFS.
For all this a backup of what you need and a fresh firmware install can solve a lot of problems and give you some speed back too.
Best reason is if you want to sell your box after extensive use and including quite a few personal things on it.
