  1. Thank you chickensoup for your rapid reply. Currently I do not have a 93 477 77parity drive installed as I still transfer my files from different sources. I will write here as soon as I upgrade to test-2. Hope this will resolve my problems. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Dear all, I have been using unraid 5, rc3. Then decided to upgrade to rc5. I did the upgrade replacing the bzimage and bzroot files. After starting the server everything worked great and didn't noticed any problems. Two days later I have noticed that I can't perform smart tests from the web interface anymore and I got the message that disks need to be spinning in order to perform the test. This message appeared while all my disks was spinning. Restart didn't help at all. Second problem: I can't install plugins anymore neither from unmenu nor manually. I have a console message saying that the upgradeplg command is not found. Do I need to build the system from scratch or I have a chance to fix this issues without rebuilding? Thanks in advance, Best regards. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Hello, Today I have noticed that Unmenu is warning me for a high level of Load Cycle count=4252 for one of my HDDs. I bought this drive about a month ago. Should i be concerned about this values or everything is as it should be. The drive is WD30EZRX. Thanks.
  4. Thank you all. I will continue filling up the array and will let you know about the results. Best regards. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thank you mr-hexen. Please kindly find attached the main screen capture. Due to the large file size i will attach the syslog in the next post.
  6. Sadly I have to report that after filling DISK1 with data and only 750gb free remained (the same free space DISK2 has) unraid continues to write to DISK1 only using User Shares. Again tried to change high-level to 2,3, is just the same. Restarts performed on every split-level change. Even tried Most-free option.... To me user shares split-levels just don't work. Disk 2 is never used. Do I need to upgrade to RC6 as I am using RC3 recently? EDIT: Upgraded to 8168-test version. Still no go.
  7. Thank you all. In case high-water means equal free space and not equal percentage of free space then it means that Unraid will start writing to Disk 2 (which is 750gb) once Disk 1 has only 750gb or less free space. I will rename the topic to "Solved" now. Best regards.
  8. Yes, theoretically it should be like this. Unfortunately DISK-1 is 55 % full and Unraid continue writing to it... Just tested "Most free" method. Split level 3 or 4- it is the same. Only DISK-1 is used by Unraid.
  9. Thanks for your answer. I have exactly the same folder structure on the second disk. If I write directly on disk2 the movie appears on the user shares. It is obviously writing when I force it but I had the impression that unraid is going to write automatically to the disks based on certain criteria. Probably the problem appears only to rc3?

  10. Hello, here are my share settings at Media folder:
  11. I am sorry for the delay. Of course my directory structure is not a secret. Please find it attached. Best regards and thanks for your efforts.
  12. Thanks for your answer Tybio, If i got it right (according to wiki- Link ) the high water mode means that unraid will start to write on the next drive when the information on the first disk reaches 50% of the volume. So I thought after this 50% Unraid will start writing to the next HDD. Probably I misunderstood the idea. Thanks again. Best regards.
  13. Dear lionelhutz, Thank you for your answer. It is not dependant on the content. I tried to copy music, hd moves and tv shows directly to /usershares/media/(respective sub-folder) and the result is always the same. The content is written directly to DISK1 instead of the other empty disks. What i thought is that probably it is a split level issue. I don't mind TV Shows series to be stored only on DISK1, but why HD Movies, Documentaries and Music are still written on DISK1 instead of other ones? Probably it is worth to be mentioned that i didn't restarted the server after changes being made in the splitlevel. Best regards.
  14. Dear Unraid community. Please help me with the split level issue i experience. I have read all of the info (including the wiki topic) but still have problems. My setup for all of the disks in my array are the following: The split level I set for all my HDDs is 3, HighWater. From what i understood, UNRAID will fill up 50% of the capacity of DISK1 and then will start to fill another 50% of DISK2, etc.... None of this is working for me. Unraid is writing only to DISK1, although i have tried every single split level number (from 1 to 5) and none of them gave any result. Curently my DISK1 is 60% full. Please help me resolving this issue. Thank you very much in advance.
  15. Hello, Please take a look here but have in mind that additional CPU horse power (from the router side) are needed for a smooth streaming performance. In the near past I used to have this type of configuration based on a WRT54gl router and the streaming of video files was almost impossible. Once i changed the router with a routerboard the level of joy increased dramaticaly.
  16. It is the same with Samba shares. I can not download subtitles via XBMC subtitles plugin to unraid too. Is it possible this issue to be connected with some kind of a permission problems?
  17. Thank you very much. I will start another preclear. Best regards.
  18. Dear All, Could you please take a look at my log? I started the preclear with a screen support but during the night the connection was lost. I followed the howto re-attach to the screen but didn't managed to do it. Then i ask for a log: grep preclear /var/log/syslog | todos >> /boot/preclear_results.txt Here is what I had. It is strange that the preclear was finished in only 9:14 hrs. The drive is WD30EZRX. Thanks in advance preclear_results.txt
  19. Yes, I have the card but haven't tested it yet as I still don't have the new HDDs. Once I buy them I will do the tests. Hmmm...I hope i didn't bought the wrong controller. EDIT: It seems to be supported: Another confirmation:
  20. Dear Pankov, I got the supermicro extension card from Persy The guys are very helpful and even did a great discount on the price of the cables which was not included. I think there is no other Supermicro reseller in Bulgaria. Best regards.
  21. Yep, "Let the games begin" I just installed unraid (The latest V5 RC3) and played a bit with the unmenu. I don't have plans to use many demanding plugins. My idea is to use it as a fileserver (still dont have the HDDs) and to install some cardserver software for my satelite tv hobby. I noticed some bugs...well probably I don't do something right but the plugins does not start automatically after i reboot the server, never-mind the fact I install them with such option via the unmenu. I have to re-enable them in order to work again after the restart. SSh for an example. Next week I am expecting to have the new 2tb HDDs and then the real games will begin
