  1. I had the opportunity to test the “real word” bandwidth of some commonly used controllers in the community, so I’m posting my results in the hopes that it may help some users choose a controller and others understand what may be limiting their parity check/sync speed. Note that these tests are only relevant for those operations, normal read/writes to the array are usually limited by hard disk or network speed. Next to each controller is its maximum theoretical throughput and my results depending on the number of disks connected, result is observed parity/read check spee

  2. Hi, First of all, I want to thank everyone in this community working on making unRAID such an awesome product. I just had a disk fail on me 2 days ago and I swapped it for a brand new one with almost no downtime at all, the GUI made me feel safe during the whole process of rebuilding the disk from parity and I really appreciate knowing my data is very safe in the future (with backups too just in case ;-)). My question is regarding silent data corruption, also known as bit-rot. I've read a little bit about it on the unRAID forums and over r/unraid on Reddit and did notice the e

  3. Are there any recent guides to setup a network boot server on UnRAID? It would be pretty useful to set it up so I could boot any PC on my network with a recovery tool or install a different OS without needing to make a new USB drive. I found some guides or threads that looked good, but they are very out of date:

  5. I would assume that you would mean by this to simply boot up using the 'Safe Mode' option in the boot menu. To the OP: This is a test to see if there is a hardware problem or some sort of issue with a plugin or Docker App. If it works in the Safe Mode, the likelihood of a hardware problem is virtually zero.

  6. Assuming you are using the same version of Plex in both dockers and the same mappings, the functionality should be the same. You will only be changing the container. I have never used pre-roll before though. Wasn’t even aware of it before your post. I would suggest testing with the new docker. Shutdown the old docker but don’t delete it. Install the new docker with the same mappings and see what happens. Several people have posted that they were able to switch without any issues.

  7. Try it without plugins or dockers and see if it works that way.

  8. Two simple ways to boot your VM: Use PlopKexec, boot from its ISO image, and have your flash drive available to the VM. The boot code will detect the USB drive and continue boot from it. Adds a few extra seconds to be boot time but might be worth it in simplicity. This is the method I'm using now. Create a small boot drive on your Unraid VM, format it as FAT, copy the content of the USB drive to it and then run the "make bootable" bat script from it to make that drive bootable. You will still need to have the flash drive available to the VM. This method shaves a few seconds from bo

  9. You could use http://ip-address and let it redirect, or use http://tower and let it redirect, or if you have a DNS server, use http://tower.domain.com and let it redirect. Or, without redirection, use https://<some long hex>.unraid.net I save the last one as a browser bookmark for quick access. Just avoid using https://ip-address and https://tower because of the certificate mismatch, as Cameron explained.

  10. Hi @Nick_J glad that its working. One quick thing that you can try too is check if write cache is enabled on the drives. On the webui you will see each disk has an id ie sdb sde sdf etc For each disk use this command. Example here is for my disk sdb hdparm -W /dev/sdb If it doesn't say write-caching on for the drive as above. You can enable it by using command hdparm -W 1 /dev/sdb

  11. You can set separate host paths for each. IE /mnt/users/movies/4k, /mnt/users/movies/anime, etc. Map each one to a custom container path (plex_4k, plex_anime, etc). I think this will let you set custom libraries within the app. Never tried it though.

  12. That is correct. At this time, the built in Mod Manager for ARK doesn't work right (this is an ARK Dev issue, and the only known fix involves Symlinking folders and running the executable from a specific directory). One thing to be aware of is that ARK Mods require you to start ARK once after you finish the download, to finish the extraction and installation of the Mod. If you do not start ARK once after the Mod download, and wait for it to finish "Installing Mod(s)" (seen in the lower right corner of the menu), then the files you copy over will be incomplete.

  13. This slightly on the slow side, but not excessively so. If you do not mind all your disks spinning you might want to look at what performance you get using Turbo Write mode. There is an associated plugin to help automate when Turbo Write mode should be used if you do not want to control it manually.

  14. Would be great to be able to specify a different docker container for the "Network Type" natively, where a docker container is using: --cap-add=NET_ADMIN --device /dev/net/tun A use case for this is as follows: I have a VPN Client Docker (dperson/openvpn-client) [called "vpn"] that's permanently connected to my VPN provider (PIA in my case) I then have 2 dockers which tunnel their network through that container (jackett and qbittorrent) At present I have come up with a bit of a hack after lots of messing around where I set the 2 dependent

  15. There is currently no option to enable this. Is this somehow achievable in the current release?

  16. The disks will all come back in the same order as they were before. All your docker containers will run as if nothing ever changed. But it never hurts to make a note or print a screenshot. VMs I can't comment on Sent from my SM-T560NU using Tapatalk
