  1. If like me you upgraded to 6.9 before installing the latest version I think you'd be fine - v0.2.1 works for me. I'm pretty sure there's a way to install specific versions manually with the webGUI but I can't remember how. Edit: I remembered - go to plugins -> Install Plugin then paste the following in the URL field: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jtok/unraid.vmbackup/v0.2.1/vmbackup.plg
  2. For what it's worth I've been running 6.9-RC2 since it was released and although the latest version of the plugin prevents me from installing it, the version prior has worked consistently in my weekly runs.
  3. Thanks, thought maybe I missed something. I should also mention I set an autostart delay (to give it time to establish the connection.)
  4. Using this container (which I've renamed vpn) I create a new network with the following command and route all related containers through it: docker network create container:vpn It's straightforward and (from what I can tell) works reliably, no issues with the latest update. Many seem to use proxies instead - are there advantages to that method?
  5. For anyone following my earlier instructions I've switched to using /dev/shm/ as the transcode directory. I think there may be a timing issue where the container tries to access the tmpfs before it's created which obviously caused problems. Referencing a permanent directory (/dev/shm/) avoids that. So far so good.
  6. I think a cache drive is optional and if so, no, they can run from the array. Here are instructions for replacing your cache pool but they may not be current so search to confirm: https://wiki.unraid.net/Replace_A_Cache_Drive
  7. I haven't tested enough to confirm it's related but some time after installing the GUI plugin my syslog server started logging to syslog-127.0.0.1.log rather than syslog-<my unraid server's IP>. After uninstalling it it's back to normal. Strange.
  8. I have no experience with 10K SAS drives but RAID 0 or RAID 5 will be faster than the array which is limited by the speed of a single drive, so you're better off with docker apps in the RAID pool. I forgot to mention in my other post - no reflashing. You format the pool as BTRFS and set the RAID level with the web GUI (software.)
  9. I've run 3 drives in a secondary RAID 5 pool since about beta-25, so far so good. It shows as protected on the Shares page. I'd worry about speed with appdata. Doesn't hurt to try? *Sometimes it hurts to try.
  10. Thanks but I meant a console command (I'm trying to script something.)
  11. hdparm seems to work but is there a better way (that might update the WebGUI's activity "LED") ?
  12. Makes sense. I thought maybe I misunderstood AVR or my unit had a substandard implementation. Thanks. Sorry OP for the tangent.
  13. My Cyberpower's AVR only kicks in when voltage drops down from 120V to 104V. That rarely happens so why's it important the drop's supplemented by circuitry rather than battery? The more common case (total power loss) is handled by battery entirely.
  14. Same. In my case multiple simultaneous transcodes maxed out the RAM drive.
  15. I've never seen a file that size. Mine are few MB each. The large size suggests it's being continuously written to in which case my script deleting it may cause whatever's writing it to fail...
