  • Unraid OS version 6.12.5-rc1 available


    The 6.12.5-rc1 release mainly contains bug fixes and security updates that we'd like feedback on before releasing it as 6.12.5.


    Upgrade steps for this release

    1. As always, prior to upgrading, create a backup of your USB flash device:  "Main/Flash/Flash Device Settings" - click "Flash Backup".
    2. Update all of your plugins. This is critical for the NVIDIA and Realtek plugins in particular.
    3. If the system is currently running 6.12, we're going to suggest that you stop the array at this point. If it gets stuck on "Retry unmounting shares", open a web terminal and type:
      umount /var/lib/docker

      The array should now stop successfully (issues related to Docker not stopping should be resolved in this release.)

    4. Go to Tools -> Update OS. Change to the "Next" branch and click "Check for Updates".
    5. Wait for the update to download and install
    6. If you have any plugins that install 3rd party drivers (NVIDIA, Realtek, etc), wait for the notification that the new version of the driver has been downloaded. 
    7. Reboot


    This thread is perfect for quick questions or comments, but if you suspect there will be back and forth for your specific issue, please start a new topic. Be sure to include your diagnostics.zip.

    We are watching it. As we are unsure when a new version of ZFS will be available we have published Unraid 6.12.5 with a mitigation in place (details in the release notes)
