  1. Past hour
  2. The big difference I can see is that QNAP NAS's are hardware with defined and clear cut w/ regards to the hardware like the number of network interfaces and possible roles of the interfaces. Also, I think most commercial NAS have a small reset button in case you bugger up the network config. We don't have that in Unraid, which leads to the WebUI having to figure out just what is on the machine and work with it seems to get from the OS, and if it makes a mistake, there's no magic reset network config button. You either reconfigure locally (Console or GUI mode), or you unplug the USB, pop in another PC and fix/reset the config files. Unraid has to make some general assumptions that would work for everybody out of the box, hence the initial bond all network interfaces together upon startup so that the network would work out of the box regardless of how many devices there are or which one is eth0 and if that interface has an actual cable plugged in. Unraid has no idea which of your on-board or addon nic would become eth0 and neither would you unless you've used the PC/server on a similar generation Linux OS before already. The fact that it works for a lot of people out of the box or with minimal difficulty is already a great step forward and it will probably get better, but lets face it we are not there yet. Last I checked the similar competition FreeNAS, or OMV do not have such a sparkling network configuration UI either. One should also remember that QNAP spends a lot for the development and support, and makes a user pay for it, by being way more expensive than a similarly specced NAS made out of off the shelf consumer or even server parts. I'm not knocking on the way you think, just pointing out that features tend to cost money due to development and testing, and you would have been shocked at how we got to the current networking configuration in the last 3 - 4 years - we only got custom docker IPs around 2 years ago, and we had back and forth with the community and the devs on which way to go and how to go. The current system is amazing and flexible, though not super user friendly.
  3. Today
  4. Big thanks to you and your team, overall solid product and happy to continue using it. Q1: Do you plan to develop the hypervisor functionality further? such as including common gpu hardware drivers like nvidia, amd or intel for VM passthrough, which is currently achieved through community projects. Q2: SSD's are currently experimental and not fully supported, do you plan on bringing them along with nvme drives as future data mediums change (also ties into q1 in terms of drivers)? Q3: If you were to start the whole project again where would you focus your time or ditch some features/projects altogether?
  5. "Assigning interfaces is possible from the GUI (see Interface Rules)." - yet it's still very limited and clearly didn't work for me. "It shouldn't. With a correct procedure a single reboot is required". - Maybe I should have changed to 'why it requires -any- reboots' for a network change. It shouldn't be so hard. "When tossing interfaces, it requires to move the physical cable" - All cards had a cable (yes 3 physical cables), so I don't think this is relevant (assuming I am correctly interpreting what 'tossing interfaces' means). Basically I'm just trying to say, in this day and age, and with Unraid having so much reliance around docker and VM's networking we can probably do better (and probably should do better), via GUI. Unraid is awesome, it would be more awesome with some semi-recent GUI network config tool. Right now it's very very basic. Attached the QNAP one below, just cause it's what I know about, being that QNAP is on linux, basic and based around open source community. Good to think about, in terms of where we could be in the future, not where we must be, just where we could aim. Amongst the NAS's QNAP does have an edge when it comes to customer oriented features so I tend to look toward them and ask how and why. Why should we suppress thinking forward?
  6. Thanks for your clue. Actually I deleted the route manually while trying to figuring out the problem but I totally forget that it corresponds to a docker network. I pruned my docker networks (the network wasn't in use anyway) and now everything is working, I also deleted the manual ip route command at system startup as the router handles the routing to the vpn clients. Thanks a lot. Can I change the broadcast address in the webgui or can I change it manually? I didn't found the settings regarding this.
  7. No problem. It doesnt appear to be a browser issue. Works fine on a Windows PC in Chrome, Firefox, or IE. On a Linux PC though most of the characters accessed with SHIFT + dont work. Its clearly not the keyboard.
  8. What is one thing that makes you proud and one thing that you look forward to for Unraid?
  9. My current setup is in my signature but I am not utilising it as much as I thought I would. I want to downgrade to a more power efficient rig, sell the graphics card and just run dockers and the odd VM. My current system idles at about 100W. So as I see it my approaches are (1) just change my 14 core E5 processor to a lower power v4 one and see if I can tweak BIOS settings etc, perhaps implement sleep hours during the night and so on to lower general running costs. Alternatively (2) replace the motherboard, CPU and memory with something else like a modern Pentium Gold or 8th gen i3 (for Plex transcoding) I am based in the UK and pay about 14p per kW/h. Any ideas? I don't think I can re-use my memory with a 1151 motherboard and i3 so would need to sell that and buy some more. My E5 is one where I have BIOS unlocked it to get an all-core boost of 3.2GHz across all 14 cores. It would be nice to have hardware transcoding as I share my library with friends and it often transcodes.
  10. Are you the original author of emhttp? Do you still get to do any coding? If so do you do most of it by yourself? Thanks for this slick, powerful OS!
  11. A slightly different alternative would be to use the CA Backup & Restore plugin to backup your app & flash data. That handles stopping and starting of containers automatically. Then, to backup to the cloud, you could point duplicati at your appdata backup - then you've got on- and off-site backups. Just a thought.
  12. I`ve asked because the german implementation never worked for me, no matter if I used the buildin webVNC client or any other like tightVNC or realVNC. None of the clients I was able to use any german key combination.
  13. Some log files would be needed to investigate this. Fresh supervisor log file as minimum, maybe run command?
  14. Did you get any solution? I'm in the need to change the keyboard layout to spanish. I'm on UNRAID 6.7.0 Thankyou Gus
  15. As the industry continues to switch from spinning hard drive to SSD as capacity increases, how do you foresee unraid will evolve to meet the different challenges that solid state hard drives bring? Just to be clear I'm talking in relation to array drives, cache is a known solved problem running SSD. Sent from my EML-L29 using Tapatalk
  16. Given the rocky road it appears to have ahead, do you see Unraid moving away from Slackware at any time in the future? If so, how do you see this affecting existing users on 6.xx? If not, are you expecting Limetech to have to take on the workload of maintaining an OS in any way?
  17. I am an English speaker in Australia. I have never had this issue before. Actually, I just went and utilised my wife's work laptop running windows and it works fine. So using VNC from the VM tab on a Linux PC doesnt work. But from Windows it works fine. Ill have to download a Windows ISO then.
  18. Yep that’s what I did for now. Turned docker service off for the night hoping to get parity rebuild done as fast as possible. Hopefully get it all back to normal right when the new drive and heat sync arrives tomorrow
  19. Ok. While appdata is on the array you will need to remember to stop the docker containers to get decent parity check speeds.
  20. Thank you. This solves my reverse proxy warning.
  21. The docker image is in /mnt/cache/docker.img the appdata used to reside as a cache only share though I did move to the array temporarily since I have been having those vicious cache drive issues and got tired of restoring often until my new nvme drive arrives. I did update firmware on the nvme drive though for now was leaving the appdata in the array and off cache for now though. I will set it back once I feel a bit more comfortable
  22. @darrenyorston German layout for VNC?
  23. Perfect, thanks for the Info Gesendet von meinem SM-G950F mit Tapatalk
  24. I'd like to see an official way to build and add in-tree and out-of-tree drivers so we can have driver support for the odd piece of hardware that may have no businees being part of Unraid, but the user would like to really have. Will you ever plan to have patch packages, so that if there is a big vulnerability with say Samba, you can release a patched version of it without having to roll out a new version of Unraid (specially in the middle of an RC) Sorry for the extra Question.
