  1. Those following the 6.9-beta releases have been witness to an unfolding schism, entirely of my own making, between myself and certain key Community Developers. To wit: in the last release, I built in some functionality that supplants a feature provided by, and long supported with a great deal of effort by @CHBMB with assistance from @bass_rock and probably others. Not only did I release this functionality without acknowledging those developers previous contributions, I didn't even give them notification such functionality was forthcoming. To top it off, I worked with a

  2. ***Update*** : Apologies, it seems like there was an update to the Unraid forums which removed the carriage returns in my code blocks. This was causing people to get errors when typing commands verbatim. I've fixed the code blocks below and all should be Plexing perfectly now Y =========== Granted this has been covered in a few other posts but I just wanted to have it with a little bit of layout and structure.

  6. I had exactly the same issue and could not find any solutions on the forum or the internet. So I did some digging myself and found the cause of the issue. The docker update check script gets the remote digest of the latest tag from the docker repository via a header called 'Docker-Content-Digest'. The script checks for this header with a case-sensitive regex pattern. Manually querying the docker hub registry gives me a header called 'docker-content-digest' (mind the casing). The docker hub registry must have recently changed the casing of this header, because it broke for me in the last 24 hou

  8. Hello Unraid Community! It has come to our attention that in recent days, we've seen a significant uptick in the amount of Unraid server's being compromised due to poor security practices. The purpose of this post is to help our community verify their server's are secure and provide helpful best-practices recommendations to ensuring your system doesn't become another statistic. Please review the below recommendations on your server(s) to ensure they are safe. Set a strong root password Similar to many routers, Unraid systems do not have a password set by default.

  9. Welcome (again) to 6.9 release development! This release marks hopefully the last beta before moving to -rc phase. The reason we still mark beta is because we'd like to get wider testing of new multiple-pool feature, as well as perhaps sneak in a couple more refinements. With that in mind, the obligatory disclaimer: Important: Beta code is not fully tested and not feature-complete. We recommend running on test servers only! That said, here's what's new in this release... Multiple Pools This features permits you to define up to 35 named po

If you are running any earlier Unraid OS 6 release, i.e., 6.8.0 and earlier, please read on.

  15. I've have been following this and the other thread with very mixed feelings and I feel the community is unjustly hard towards @limetech. Sure some things could have been handled better, yet I keep the feelings that the bigger injustice is not actually committed by him. In order to understand things better and to see things from a different perspective I personally like to make analogies. Sometimes it gives different insights into situations.

Bring up the Guacamole left panel menu (CTRL ALT SHIFT) Input Method = On Screen Keyboard In the On Screen Keyboard, use ALT (it'll stay on, 'pressed') then TAB, select it using TAB, then ALT again (to turn off) A tip I found too, is that anytime doing a copy or move, always best to use the 'queue' button in the pop-up confirmation dialog so that multiple transfers are sequentially handled.

  17. As always, prior to updating, create a backup of your USB flash device: "Main/Flash/Flash Device Settings" - click "Flash Backup". Besides bug fixing, most of the work in this release is related to upgrading to the Linux 5.9 kernel where, due to kernel API changes, it has become necessary to move device spin-up/down and spin-up group handling out of the md/unraid driver and have it handled entirely in user space. This also let us fix an issue where device spin-up of devices in user-defined pools was executed serially instead of in parallel. We should also now be able

  19. Since I can remember Unraid has never been great at simultaneous array disk performance, but it was pretty acceptable, since v6.7 there have been various users complaining for example of very poor performance when running the mover and trying to stream a movie. I noticed this myself yesterday when I couldn't even start watching an SD video using Kodi just because there were writes going on to a different array disk, and this server doesn't even have a parity drive, so did a quick test on my test server and the problem is easily reproducible and started with the first v6.7 release c

  21. Turbo Write technically known as "reconstruct write" - a new method for updating parity JonP gave a short description of what "reconstruct write" is, but I thought I would give a little more detail, what it is, how it compares with the traditional method, and the ramifications of using it. First, where is the setting? Go to Settings -> Disk Settings, and look for Tunable (md_write_method). The 3 options are read/modify/write (the way we've always done it), reconstruct write (Turbo write, the new way), and Auto which is something for the future but is currently the same as t

  22. 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

  23. I come here to see what's new in development and find that there is a big uproar. Hate to say it, but I've been here a long time and community developers come and go and that's just the way it is. This unRAID product opens the door to personalizations, both private and shared. Community developers do leave because they feel that unRAID isn't going in the direction they want it to go or that the unRAID developers aren't listening to them even though there is no obligation to do so. Some leave in a bigger fuss than others. The unRAID developers do the best they can at trying to create a product

  24. It appears that the docker images --digests --no-trunc command is showing, for whatever reason, the digest of the manifest list rather than the manifest itself for containers pushed as part of a manifest list (https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/commandline/manifest/#create-and-push-a-manifest-list). I'm not sure if that's always been the case, or is the result of some recent change on the Docker hub API. Also not sure if it's intentional or a bug. This causes an issue since in DockerClient.php (/usr/local/emhttp/plugins/dynamix.docker.manager/include), the request made to get

  28. EDIT (March 9th 2021): Solved in 6.9 and up. Reformatting the cache to new partition alignment and hosting docker directly on a cache-only directory brought writes down to a bare minimum. ### Hey Guys, First of all, I know that you're all very busy on getting version 6.8 out there, something I'm very much waiting on as well. I'm seeing great progress, so thanks so much for that! Furthermore I won't be expecting this to be on top of the priority list, but I'm hoping someone of the developers team is willing to invest (perhaps after the release).

  29. This thread is meant to replace the now outdated old one about recommended controllers, these are some controllers known to be generally reliable with Unraid: 2 ports: Asmedia ASM1061/62 (PCIe 2.0 x1) or JMicron JMB582 (PCIe 3.0 x1) 4 ports: Asmedia ASM1064 (PCIe 3.0 x1) or ASM1164 (PCIe 3.0 x4 physical, x2 electrical, though I've also seen some models using just x1) 5 ports: JMicron JMB585 (PCIe 3.0 x4 - x2 electrically) These JMB controllers are available in various different SATA/M.2 configurations, just some examples:

If you cannot access your unRaid shares via DNS name ( \\tower ) and/or via ip address ( \\192.168.x.y ) then try this. These steps do NOT require you to enable SMB 1.0; which is insecure.

  35. tldr: If you require hardware support offered by the Linux 5.x kernel then I suggest you remain on 6.8.0-rc7 and wait until 6.9.0-rc1 is published before upgrading. The "unexpected GSO type" bug is looking to be a show stopper for Unraid 6.8 using Linux kernel 5.3 or 5.4 kernel. We can get it to happen easily and quickly simply by having any VM running and then also start a docker App where Network Type has been set to "Custom : br0" (in my case) and I've set a static IP for the container or toggle between setting static IP and letting docker dhcp assign one.

  40. There are several things you need to check in your Unraid setup to help prevent the dreaded unclean shutdown. There are several timers that you need to adjust for your specific needs. There is a timer in the Settings->VM Manager->VM Shutdown time-out that needs to be set to a high enough value to allow your VMs time to completely shutdown. Switch to the Advanced View to see the timer. Windows 10 VMs will sometimes have an update that requires a shutdown to perform. These can take quite a while and the default setting of 60 seconds in the VM Manager is not long enough. If
