    6.10.0 Summary of Changes and New Features

     

    As always, prior to updating, create a backup of your USB flash device:  "Main/Flash/Flash Device Settings" - click "Flash Backup".

     

    [rc3] Plugin Authors:  We patched the upgradepkg script to prevent it from replacing an installed package with an earlier version of the same package, i.e., no downgrading.  If a plugin really needs to replace a package with a downgraded version it can include the '--reinstall' option.

     

    Also be sure to check out the Dynamix File Manager plugin available now through Community Apps!

     

    UPC and My Servers Plugin

    The most visible new feature is located in the upper right corner of the webGUI header.  We call this the User Profile Component, or UPC.  The UPC allows a user to associate their server(s) and license key(s) with their Unraid Community forum account, also known as an Unraid.net account.

     

    Starting with this release, it will be necessary for a new user to either sign-in with existing forum credentials or sign-up, creating a new account via the UPC in order to download a Trial key.  All key purchases and upgrades are also handled exclusively via the UPC.

     

    Signing-in provides these benefits:

    1. My Servers Dashboard - when logged into the forum a new My Servers menu item appears. Clicking this brings up a Dashboard which displays a set of tiles representing servers associated with this account.  Each tile includes a link to bring up the servers webGUI on your LAN.  Install the My Servers plugin to provide real-time status and other advanced features (see below).
    2. Notification of critical security-related updates.  In the event a serious security vulnerability has been discovered and patched, we will send out a notification to all email addresses associated with registered servers.
    3. Posting privilege in a new set of My Servers forum boards.
    4. No more reliance on email and having to copy/paste key file URLs in order to install a license key - keys are delivered and installed automatically to your server.

     

    Once a license key has been provisioned, it is not necessary to remain signed-in, though there is no particular reason to sign-out.

     

    My Servers Plugin

    My Servers is what we call our set of cloud-based or cloud-enabled services and features that integrate with your Unraid server(s).  Once installed here are some of the features of My Servers:

    • Real-time Status - with the plugin installed each server tile on the My Servers Dashboard will display real-time status such as whether the server is online or offline, storage utilization and other information. 
    • Remote Access link - if enabled, a link is displayed on the My Servers Dashboard to bring up a server webGUI remotely and over the Internet.
    • Automatic Flash Backup - every registered server is provided with a private git repo initially populated with the contents of your USB flash boot device (except for certain files which contain private information such as passwords).  Thereafter, configuration changes are automatically committed.  A link is provided to download a custom zip file that can be fed as input to the USB Flash Creator tool to move your configuration to a new USB flash device.

     

    My Servers is an optional add-on, installed through Community Apps or via direct plugin URL.  Detailed instructions can be found here.

     

    If you have installed the My Servers plugin, signed-in servers will maintain a websocket connection to a cloud-based Lime Technology proxy server for the purpose of relaying real-time status.

     

    Security Changes

    • It is now mandatory to define a root password.  We also created a division in the Users page to distinguish root from other user names.  The root UserEdit page includes a text box for pasting SSH authorized keys.
    • For new configurations, the flash share default export setting is No.
    • For all new user shares, the default export setting is No.
    • For new configurations, SMBv1 is disabled by default.
    • For new configurations, telnet, ssh, and ftp are disabled by default.
    • We removed certain strings from Diagnostics such as passwords found in the 'go' file.

     

    Virtualization

    Both libvirt and qemu have been updated.  In addition, qemu has been compiled with OpenGL support, and [rc2] ARM emulation (experimental).

     

    [rc2] To support Windows 11 which requires TPM and Secure boot, we have added TPM emulation; and, added a "Windows 11" VM template which automatically selects TPM-aware OVMF bios.  Also, here are instructions for upgrading a Windows 10 VM to Windows 11.  Special thanks to @ich777 who researched and determined what changes and components were necessary to provide this functionality.

     

    The built-in Firefox browser available in GUI-mode boot is built as an AppImage and located in the bzfirmware compressed file system image.  This saves approximately 60MB of RAM.

     

    The Wireguard plugin has been integrated into webGUI, that is, no need for the plugin.  If you had the plugin installed previously, it will be uninstalled and moved to the "Plugins/Plugin File Install Errors" page. No action is needed unless you want to press the Delete button to remove it from that page. Your WireGuard tunnels and settings will be preserved.

     

    Simplified installation of the Community Apps plugin.  The webGUI automatically includes the Apps menu item, and if CA is not already installed, the page offers an Install button.  No need to hunt for the plugin link.

     

    [rc3] Moving to Let's Encrypt wildcard SSL certificates. 

    Starting with this release, we no longer issue new single-host SSL certificates (which we're calling legacy certificates).  Instead, all new Unraid.net SSL certificates are wildcard certificates (still provided by Let's Encrypt).  In order to provision a new wildcard certificate, or upgrade a legacy certificate, you must be signed-in to Unraid.net.  You do not need to be signed-in however, to have either type of certificate automatically renewed when it is within 30 days of expiration.

     

    The URL used to access your server making use of a wildcard certificate has this form:

    • https://[lan-ip].[hash].myunraid.net

    where,

    • [lan-ip] is your severs LAN IP address with dots changed to dashes
    • [hash] is a 40-character hex string (160 bits) unique to this server (and different from similar [hash] in legacy certificates)

    example:

     

    We added a new DDNS server which listens at "myunraid.net".  This server extracts [lan-ip] from the domain name and returns the IP address where the dashes are changed back into dots.  There are several benefits to this approach for both our users and for us:

    • Eliminates DNS propagation delays when you first provision a certificate or when a server LAN IP address (or WAN IP address) changes.  Since the domain name includes the IP address, any IP address change also changes the domain name, hence will not be contained in any intermediate DNS cache.  We also changed the TTL from 1 hour to 7 days further reducing overhead and alleviating issues where someone's internet goes down for brief periods.
    • Improves privacy because your remote access WAN IP address can't be determined by simply prepending "www" to your local access URL.
    • Moves DNS functionality off the 'unraid.net' domain and isolates it on 'myunraid.net' domain.

     

    In previous releases code that provisions (allocates and downloads) an Unraid.net SSL certificate would first test if DNS Rebinding Protection was enforced on the user's LAN; and, if so, would not provision the certificate.  Since there are other uses for a LE certificate we changed the code so that provision would always proceed.  Next, we changed the logic behind the Auto selection of "Use SSL/TLS" setting on the Management Access page.  Now it is only possible to select Auto if both a LE certificate has been provisioned and DNS Rebinding Protection is not enforced.  This is a subtle change but permits certain My Servers features such as Remote Access.

     

    Upon upgrading, you will need to modify any server bookmarks with new the URL; however, if you server is signed-in to Unraid.net then the My Servers dashboard maintains the correct Local Access URL for each of your servers.

     

    More information including use cases may be found in Documentation here.

     

    Linux Kernel

    Upgrade to [rc3] Linux 5.15.27 kernel which includes so-called Sequoia and Dirty Pipe vulnerability mitigations.

     

    In-tree GPU drivers are now loaded by default if corresponding hardware is detected:

    • amdgpu
    • ast
    • i915
    • radeon

     

    These drivers are required mostly for motherboard on-board graphics used in GUI boot mode.  Loading of a driver can be prohibited by creating the appropriate file named after the driver:

    echo "blacklist i915" > /boot/config/modprobe.d/i915.conf

    Alternately, the device can be isolated from Linux entirely via the System Devices page.  Note that in Unraid OS 6.9 releases the in-tree GPU drivers are blacklisted by default and to enabling loading a driver you need to create an empty "conf" file.  After upgrading to Unraid OS 6.10 you may delete those files, or leave them as-is.  This change was made to greatly improve the Desktop GUI experience for new users.

     

    Added support for Intel GVT-g, which lets you split your Intel i915 iGPU into multiple virtual GPUs and pass them through to multiple VMs, using @ich777's Intel-GVT-g plugin.

     

    Added support for gnif/vendor-reset.  This simplifies @ich777's AMD Vendor Reset plugin which permits users to get their AMD video cards to reset properly.

     

    [rc2] Added so-called "add-relaxable-rmrr-5_8_and_up.patch" modified for our kernel
      https://github.com/kiler129/relax-intel-rmrr/blob/master/patches/add-relaxable-rmrr-5_8_and_up.patch

    Thanks to @ich777 for pointing this out.

     

    [rc2] Enabled additional ACPI kernel options
    [rc2] Updated out-of-tree drivers

    [rc2] Enabled TPM kernel modules (not utilized yet) - note this is for Unraid host utilizing physical TPM, not emulated TPM support for virtual machnes.

     

    Base Packages

    Virtually the entire base package set has been updated.

     

    [rc2] For SMB: Samba version 4.15 SMB3 multi-channel is no longer marked "experimental" and is enabled by default.

     

    [rc2] Per request we added the mcelog package.  With inclusion of this package, if you have an AMD processor you may see this error message in the system log:

    mcelog: ERROR: AMD Processor family 23: mcelog does not support this processor. Please use the edac_mce_amd module instead.

    We're not sure what to make of this.  It appears mcelog is being deprecated in favor of rasdaemon.  This is something we need to research further.

     

    Other improvements available in 6.10, which are maybe not so obvious to spot from the release notes and some of these improvements are internal and not really visible:

     

    Event driven model to obtain server information and update the webGUI in real-time

    • The advantage of this model is its scalability. Multiple browsers can be opened simultaneously to the webGUI without much impact
    • In addition stale browser sessions won't create any CSRF errors anymore
    • People who keep their browser open 24/7 will find the webGUI stays responsive at all times
    • [rc3] Consistent state information is maintained across all browser instances open to a particular server

     

    Docker labels

    • Docker labels are added to allow people using Docker compose to make use of icons and GUI access
    • Look at a Docker 'run' command output to see exactly what labels are used

     

    Docker custom networks

    • A new setting for custom networks is available. Originally custom networks are created using the macvlan mode, and this mode is kept when upgrading to version 6.10
    • The new ipvlan mode is introduced to battle the crashes some people experience when using macvlan mode. If that is your case, change to ipvlan mode and test. Changing of mode does not require to reconfigure anything on Docker level, internally everything is being taken care off.

     

    Docker bridge network (docker0)

    • docker0 now supports IPv6. This is implemented by assigning docker0 a private IPv6 subnet (fd17::/64), similar to what is done for IPv4 and use network translation to communicate with the outside world
    • Containers connected to the bridge network now have both IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity (of course the system must have IPv6 configured in the network configuration)
    • In addition several enhancements are made in the IPv6 implementation to better deal with the use (or no-use) of IPv6

     

    Plugins page

    • The plugins page now loads information in two steps. First the list of plugins is created and next the more time consuming plugin status field is retrieved in the background. The result is a faster loading plugins page, especially when you have a lot of plugins installed

     

    Dashboard graphs

    • The dashboard has now two graphs available. The CPU graph is displayed by default, while the NETWORK graph is a new option under Interface (see the 'General Info' selection)
    • The CPU graph may be hidden as well in case it is not desired
    • Both graphs have a configurable time-line, which is by default 30 seconds and can be changed independently for each graph to see a longer or shorter history.
    • Graphs are updated in real-time and are useful to observe the behavior of the server under different circumstances

     

    Scheduler Improvements

    • [rc3] You can now split a parity check into smaller pieces and let it run over multiple days or weeks.  For example a check can be performed in a time frame of 01:00am to 06:00am for several days in a row until it is completed.  This way a long parity check won’t interfere with the normal day activities, like watching a movie.
    • [rc3] Added ability to schedule pool 'balance' and 'scrub' operations and calculate whether a full balance is recommended.

     

    Other Changes

    • We switched to a better-maintained version of the WSD server component called wsdd2 in an effort to eliminate instances where the wsd daemon would start consuming 100% of a CPU core.  [rc2] Automatically restrict wsdd to listen only at the primary network interface (br0, bond0, or eth0, depending on config).
    • Fixed issue where you couldn't create a docker image on a share name that contains a space.
    • Fixed issue where 'mover' would not move to a pool name that contains a space.
    • Fixed issue in User Share file system where permissions were not being honored.
    • We increased the font size in Terminal and [rc2] fixed issue with macOS Monterey.
    • [rc2] Fixed jumbo frames not working.
    • [rc2] sysctl: handle net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_count max exceeded (increase setting to 131072) - hattip to Community Member @DieFalse

    • [rc2] Mover will create '.partial' file and then rename upon completion.

    • [rc2] Check bz file sha256sums at boot time.

    • [rc3] Fixed bug found by @thohell where md_sync_limit was not being honored to limit stripe_head cache usage when other I/O is active.  The effect of this fix is to drastically slow down parity operations if other I/O is happening (such as streaming a video).  Throttling of parity sync operations can be adjusted by changing the 'Settings/Disk Settings/Tunable (md_sync_limit)' value.

    • [rc3] Fixed btrfs pool device replace corner cases.  Important note: if you 'unassign' a device from a btrfs multiple-device pool, and that device is still physically present, upon array Start we will erase the LUKS header on the device if present, and delete the partition structure, thereby effectively erasing all the data contained on the device.  This is necessary in order to convince btrfs to no longer use the device and to free it for assignment to another pool.

    • [rc3] For cookies managed by webGUI, changed sameSite cookie attribute from 'strict' to 'lax'.  This change was made to solve an issue with Terminal window not opening in Safari.

    Any solution to get out of "DNS Propagation is PENDING"?

    my system has IPV6+IPV4

    at first, GUI address was ip6.hash

    after deleting the certificate and provisioning it's stuck at the above.

    can't use ssl for GUI now

    I'll have to revert to 6.9.2 since I need this docker running.

    Unlikely.  What folder / share etc is it talking about being full?  How is it referenced on the template?

    I think you're correct. Looks like my auto-mount settings for UD devices have disappeared and the drive I use for storing videos and the frigate db wasn't mounted. After mounting the drive frigate start is successful. Thanks for pointing that out.

    in diagnostics i see this 

    DNS Rebinding Protection is disabled, myunraid.net urls will work on this network
     

    also, can't select Auto under use SSL/TLS

     

    I'm facing similar issues.

     

    after updating the cert via the plugin

    I'm stuck with "DNS Propagation is PENDING"

    access to the interface takes "forever" (~10-15s)

    unable to select "auto" under use SSL/TLS

     

    during the cert updating process I saw following error appear real quick "nchan communication error"

     

    Any ideas to sort this out?

     

    PS: dns rebind has been updated ofc

    No issues with rc2 on github a change was made for ultrawide after rc2 :

    https://github.com/limetech/webgui/commit/e43b4d652df190011c54f3aa6a00a02bb0baa2bc

     

    Also in release notes:

    webgui: Limit popup window width on ultrawide monitors 

     

    Also 4k is 16:9

     

    my monitor is 32:9  :)

     

     

    In your earlier post you stated: This is what I see when my browser is in 2560x1440p (this is not 32:9)

     

    What is the resolution of your monitor?

    The change I made is to limit the width of the window to max 1600px on ultrawide monitors.

     

    Btw, did you try different browsers?

    Firefox 99b2 works fine.

     

    Appears its a chrome issue.

     

    I run my browser in the middle of my screen in a 2560x1440p window.

     

    But the total resolution of the panel is 5120x1440p

    Having issues viewing the GUI via an iPhone running iOS 15.4RC. 

     

    1. If the page is left idle, like to browse a different tab, for example, a popup shows up saying "nchan communication error, this page will be reloaded"

    2. I am periodically unable to tap the targets for Dashboard, Main, etc. I can tap them but nothing happens. it looks like a click is registered but nothing happens. If I instead choose to long-tap and open in a new tab, it works as intended and all subsequent taps register properly.

    After updating my backup server to 6.10.0-RC3, I am getting the error below frequently.  I have closed and reopened the browser (Firefox) and restarted the server a couple of times.  I have also checked that there are not tabs open to the GUI for that server on other computers.

    An easy way to replicate @bonienl is on a big monitor to set the browser width to 1280px.  Updating a container will have the left side cut off.

     

    I have no problems with my 5120x1440 and the browser set to 1920ish

    I have tested this with Safari on my iPad (12.3.1) and MacMini (12.2.1) and all is working fine. Perhaps this issue is related to the ios rc version?

    The window calculation takes the monitor resolution to determine the width, I can change that to the browser window resolution, so it will fit within browser window size that is used.

    Yeah I'm having the same experience. My Mac on 12.2.1 is also issue-free. Must be something new in the browser that's not playing nicely.

     

    I've also just come across this in my cache drive page

    Warning: A non-numeric value encountered in /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/dynamix/include/DefaultPageLayout.php(515) : eval()'d code on line 542

    Performing a balance doesn't resolve the issue.

    Do you get this while actively working with the browser or after some time of inactivity and the system going in powersaving mode?

     

    I have tested extensively with Firefox and all is working as expected. During normal operation the Nchan communication gets never broken.

    I made an update to calculate the popup window size based on the browser window, this ensures it will fit.

    Below a small browser window on my 4K monitor and popup window sized accordingly.

    Tested in Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari and Brave.

    I get this frequently right after powering on the server and starting the GUI.  It would appear after the GUI sat idle for a several seconds or while attempting to navigate between tabs.

     

    Interestingly, the GUI sat idle for 15 minutes or more and the error is not appearing again.  I have also tried navigating between tabs without issue.

     

    Right after upgrading yesterday and restarting the server and GUI today, I would see the error pop up every 10 seconds or so.  Now, it seem to have mysteriously disappeared.  I'll report if I see it again.

    I have not encountered this in my testing with any of the main browsers.

    In my case Nchan communication only gets broken when a device goes in powersaving or sleep mode, and I need to "wake-up" the communication.

    I can not upgrade from rc2 at all, it boots up and then I have no network. First time it said can not find bond0. I then reverted back to rc2 and disabled bonding mode. Tried to install rc3 again, but still no network. I also can not download any diagnostics, keyboard freezes and i am not able to type anything.

    My self-signed certificate is not being detected, but is still being used and SSL GUI access works as normal.  Certificate file is present in /boot/config/ssl/certs

    Bit of a rant , but on future releases can we have a bit of  reality/honesty/transparancy on announcements for coming  RC's or releases.

     

    September 2021 digest quote  "6.10 stable coming soon tm" (don't think the TM addition is remotely humerous) December digest  quote "new RC in coming days" , January   "new RC in coming days" , Febuary  downgraded to "coming soon" 

    This to me is either  Misinformation , BS , Incompetence  , lack of /testing due diligence on product and does not give me any confidence to even consider trying the RC  just released. 

     

    End of rant

    I'm seeing this as well. Self-signed cert from pfsense is installed but the first time I connected with a browser I got an identity warning even though I've been using this certificate for several years.
