  1. I was just watching my syslog being spammed with nginx ... worker process ... exited on signal 6 2-3 times/second, and immediately upon finding and closing four stale Unraid web GUI tabs open across two machines, it stopped. Hope this helps someone.
  2. tl;dr: After migrating Docker and VM storage to Unassigned Device /mnt/disks/nvme, when I stop the array and that drive unmounts, I'm left with a /mnt/disks/nvme directory containing appdata, domains, and system dirs that each contain proper-looking directory structures, but no files. I recently migrated Docker and VM storage to a /mnt/disks/nvme volume mounted by the UD plugin (carefully updating all container configuration files and even the dockerMan template files along the way), and everything seems to be working well. But, as described above, I've noticed strange
  3. tl;dr: Improve handling of the uncommon situation that the mover can't move some files from cache to array because they unexpectedly already exist on the array. In Unraid 6.8.3, it appears that if a file exists on the cache drive (e.g. /mnt/cache/foo/bar.txt) and also on the array (e.g. /mnt/user/foo/bar.txt), then mover simply leaves the file on the cache drive forever. I recognize that this situation shouldn't naturally occur, but *shrug* things happen. I can see four problems with this situation, whenever it somehow occurs: Endangered data (since
  4. Enhancement request: Not a huge deal, but it would be lovely if Unassigned Devices would report not just "luks" as the filesystem for encrypted disks, but also the effective filesystem type (e.g. "luks:xfs" or something to that effect). Thanks for all the work on Unassigned Devices--it's fantastic!
  5. Did you end up opening an issue on this? If so, I'd love to contribute to it, at least in the form of a +1, as I really need to get IOMMU going again and patching the kernel myself sounds at least...unwise. I mean, it sounds kinda fun, but mostly unwise
  6. I somehow missed that, so I did not. Thanks for the tip! I'll give it a try when I have a few free minutes and report back. I tried it and got an immediate failure of: Backupfolder not set I don't have time at the moment to look into that deeply, but I did find food for thought at
  7. I'm running into this (often? always?) after upgrades, as well. If I do this from the container console... # dpkg --configure -a ...and restart the container, it fixes me up until the next upgrade. Though I'm keeping an eye out for a better solution, naturally
  8. @maxse, FYI, I'm just getting started with restic, and to install it I downloaded the 'linux_amd64' build from the restic releases page on Github, and have a script called from /boot/config/go that (along with plenty of other boot-time tweaks) handles copying it to /usr/local/bin. I'll also mention that my startup scripts set the XDG_CACHE_HOME environment variable to point to a dir I made on a nice, speedy Unassigned Device (though you could also use /mnt/cache/.cache or wherever you like) so that restic makes all its cache files somewhere persistent, instead of in the RAM disk, w
  9. I'm curious about this, too, @binhex! I've been attempting incremental backups (directly to a /mnt/cache/... path within a cache-only share folder on a BTRFS cache drive) and finding that UrBackup is making none of the expected BTRFS subvols or snapshots. I'm absolutely not up to speed on what all is involved in a Docker container performing BTRFS-specific operations on an "external" BTRFS volume. So, following up on @SuperDan's question, might this be because certain BTRFS resources are excluded from the binhex-urbackup image? And, if so, is that strategic?
  10. Sorry...should've explained! I was lucky enough to have recently migrated the VM in question to a second, non-Unraid box to use as a template for another project, so I was able to simply go grab a copy of the OVMF_VARS.fd file from there. Had that not been possible, I suppose I would've grabbed a clean copy of that file from here or here, the downside being the loss of my customized NVRAM settings. I didn't notice if any cores were pegged with this happened, but I rather doubt it, because in my case there was no boot activity--I didn't get to the Tianocore logo, nor eve
  11. I humbly nominate the moreutils collection for inclusion in NerdPack. I'm particularly interested in the sponge and pee commands, but there's a variety of good stuff in there. moreutils is a nice complement to coreutils, which I believe is already included in Unraid. Thanks for considering, @dmacias, and for your generous work on NerdPack!
  12. For the record, I solved this...but I'm not sure what to make of it. And it almost surely has nothing to do with the OP's problem, but I'll leave the solution here anyway, in case it helps someone else: Apparently, the 'OVMF_VARS.fd' file (OVMF NVRAM backing for the VM) for that VM became corrupt. It is stored in an unassigned btrfs volume on an NVME drive, and the btrfs volume itself does not appear to be corrupt. I've no idea what happened there, but hopefully (and probably) it has nothing to do with Unraid 6.8.1.
  13. I'm having a somewhat similar problem. My trusty macOS VM that I've been running 24/7 for years suddenly won't start. And by that I mean that the VM claims to have started (green 'play' button lights up in the Unraid GUI), but nothing ever happens--I don't get even as far as being able to VNC in (I get the "Guest has not initialized the display (yet)" message). In the log file for the VM, not much appears--when I try to start the VM, it spits out the long set of qemu args, then this standard stuff: 2020-01-15 01:06:05.240+0000: Domain id=4 is tainted: high-privilege
  14. Thanks for the update, @ryoko227. If/when I get some time, I'll also put some work into this, and will post here. EDIT: For the record, I'm on an ASUS PRIME X370-PRO + AMD Ryzen 5 2600, with a 500GB Kingston NVME drive in the motherboard slot, formatted BTRFS, and unassigned. Turning off IOMMU in the BIOS does stop the flood of page faults, but I need to turn that back on soon ?
  15. Thanks for the info, @Gitchu. I've upgraded to Unraid 6.8.0 final, and now find that VMXNET3 (+Q35-3.1, which may or may not have anything to do with it) is working great with Catalina, as well. Though, to be fair, I haven't freshly logged into iCloud services (iMessage, App Store, iCloud Drive, etc.) recently; for anyone else reading this, I've run into problems in the past with VMXNET3 working fine with those services only after I've successfully logged in with a different (e1000 or passed-through) NIC. Fingers crossed that those days are now behind us, bu
  16. Just learned I'm also affected by this, and do need to keep IOMMU turned on. @ryoko227, did you have any luck with the patch?
  17. For the record, I'm currently experimenting with running Catalina under qemu/kvm/libvirt on a non-Unraid Linux box (still an Unraid fan here...this is just a side project!), and I find that using when qemu-4.1.1_1, a virtual e1000-82545em NIC is working just great with br0: bridging. To be fair, this br0: bridge is one I configured, and I'm not currently quite savvy enough to know if that could be the difference...but I doubt it. So, I'm looking forward to Unraid 6.8.0, suspecting an updated qemu will fix everything for me, as it did for @Gitchu. Assuming it
  18. Thanks for the update, @Gitchu! So now, with Unraid 6.8.0 RC9, which are you are successfully using? VMXNET3 or e1000-82545em?
  19. Sorry for being so slow to respond, @Jagadguru! Yes...turns out I also have that going on. Odd. And unfortunate. Are you saying that with MacinaBox & Unraid v6.8.0rc5, e1000-82545 is successfully providing both bridging and Apple ID/iCloud/App Store functionality?
  20. Thanks for the information, @Jagadguru. I'm not sure if it is faster than vmxnet3 or not, but you can have a look here: to see how I solved/worked around this issue by using e1000E, if you like!
  21. That's a very good point. If you get everything together before installing macOS, it's all painless. This morning, I carefully chose a MAC address, ROM, MLB, SMBIOS Board Serial Number and SmUUID for a new virtual macOS install in about 10 minutes (I've done it before, which helps!), installed Catalina, and logged right into iCloud.
  22. For anyone running into the e1000-82545em bridging-to-br0 weirdness under Catalina, I have a workaround that's working fine for me: Install AppleIntelE1000e.kext (I'm using the latest build from the fork at either to /Library/Extensions (the advantage being simplicity; you can install it manually or with the simple KextBeast utility) or by injecting it with Clover (the advantage being that it will likely work while installing macOS or when booted into Recovery Mode). Change the Interface definition in your XML to use the 'e1000e' vir
