• Big Sur missing Xserve sidebar glyph


    CS01-HS

    Maybe an oversight by Apple or maybe intentional.

    NAS is my unraid server.

    The closest supported server type I found was macpro-2019-rackmount so I customize the smb.service with the following script:

    cp -u /etc/avahi/services/smb.service /etc/avahi/services/smb.service.disabled
    cp /boot/extras/avahi/smb.service /etc/avahi/services/
    chmod 644 /etc/avahi/services/smb.service
    touch /etc/avahi/services/smb.service.disabled

    Where /boot/extras/avahi/smb.service looks like:

    <?xml version='1.0' standalone='no'?><!--*-nxml-*-->
    <!DOCTYPE service-group SYSTEM 'avahi-service.dtd'>
    <!-- Generated settings: -->
    <service-group>
     <name replace-wildcards='yes'>%h</name>
     <service>
      <type>_smb._tcp</type>
      <port>445</port>
     </service>
     <service>
      <type>_device-info._tcp</type>
      <port>0</port>
      <txt-record>model=MacPro7,1@ECOLOR=226,226,224</txt-record>
     </service>
    </service-group>

    which gives me this:

    Poking around I found a pretty good server glyph in an assets package (server.rack.svg) but it's not a recognized bonjour type and I don't know how to add it.

    That must surely be a problem with Big Sur. Both the icon in the main Finder window and the smaller one in the sidebar are fine in High Sierra (Unraid servers are Lapulapu (6.9.0-beta35), Mandaue (6.8.3) and Northolt (6.8.3)).

    I can confirm this bug, here's a screenshot on a Big Sur clean install.

    I set it up as a user script to run hourly but honestly can't remember why.

     

    It would make sense to put those lines in config/go so it's run on startup, but maybe that doesn't work because smb.service is overwritten on array start?

     

    The fix for that would be to set the user script to run on array start but I didn't do that either, strange.

    Maybe Apple made the decision to stop providing icons for hardware it hasn't manufactured for a number of years. I see two possible ways forward:

     

    • Ask Apple to consider reversing that decision
    • Make a feature request for Unraid to specify a different icon

     

    I suspect the second is the more likely to be successful. If I'm honest, I think the new Apple icons are more for decoration than for giving meaningful information, anyway.

    The icon is correctly visible in the same view like the screenshot you attached above, the only bug about it is the small icon in the sidebar that appears as a generic blank sheet.

    I will try that.

    I probably understood why, this morning I set a new icon (Macmini) manually in the smb.service file, everything worked until now, I don't know how, but the Xserve icon returned.

    How does that make it an Unraid bug?

    In fact it isn't, it's just a Bug Sur bug.

     

    Which was my point back in November!

    This is a place for reporting bugs in the current pre-release version Unraid, not other operating systems.

    I assumed Apple was phasing out old model types, in which case it'd make sense for unraid to use a more recent one. But right, maybe they just forgot and plan to fix it.
