• Unraid OS version 6.9.0-rc2 available


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


    Hopefully spin-up/down sorted:

    • External code (docker containers) using 'smartctl -n standby' should work ok with SATA drives.  This will remain problematic for SAS until/unless smartmontools v7.2 is released with support for '-n standby' with SAS.
    • SMART is unconditionally enabled on devices upon boot.  This solves problem where some newly installed devices may not have SMART enabled.
    • Unassigned devices will get spun-down according to 'Settings/Disk Settings/Default spin down delay'.


    Updated to 5.10 Linux kernel (5.10.1).


    Updated docker.


    Fixed bug joining AD domains.



    Version 6.9.0-rc2 2020-12-18 (vs -rc1)

    Base distro:

    • bind: verison 9.16.8
    • docker: version 19.03.14
    • krb5: version 1.18.2

    Linux kernel:

    • version 5.10.1


    • emhttpd: fix external 'smartctl -n standby' causing device spinup
    • emhttpd: enable SMART on devices upon startup
    • emhttpd: unassigned devices spin-down according to global default
    • emhttpd: restore 'poll_attributes' event callout
    • smb: fixed AD join issue
    • webgui: do not try to display SMART info that causes spin-up for devices that are spun-down
    • webgui: avoid php syntax error if autov() source file does not exist

    Unraid is not hot plug aware

    Does this also apply to Unassigned Devices, with hot plugging a SATA spinning disk, and a USB spinning disk?  

    If UD will not hot plug these, does one need to simply "Reboot", or is power cycle required?

    No - UD is hot-plug aware as long as your hardware supports it.  That should always be true for USB devices and is normally true for SATA/SAS ones.

    Is there a release notes version giving 6.9.0-rc2 → 6.9.1 changes? With a year of betas trying to figure out what changed from rc2 by teasing out what’s already changed from 6.9.0 → ~30 builds... →  6.9.0-rc2 isn’t straightforward! I’m probably just missing the obvious place to look...


    Edit: Uh, all those numbers are one off, obviously, in one direction or the other. No coffee yet, sorry. Y’all know what I mean, just the changes from rc2 to the brand-new stable release.
