  1. Do not use because (a) it won't be reflected in the GUI or (b) it may cause more serious problems like data corruption? If (b) does it apply to only array disks or pool disks as well?
  2. Spindown works only if disable autofan and anything else that queries smart data (telegraf, etc.) Once spun down these queries don't seem to wake them up but too soon to say definitively.
  3. @BurntOC I've only used that procedure once and with a different plugin. I hope I didn't lead you astray.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. Thanks, thought maybe I missed something. I should also mention I set an autostart delay (to give it time to establish the connection.)
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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- rather than syslog-<my unraid server's IP>. After uninstalling it it's back to normal. Strange.
  11. 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.)
  12. 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.
  13. Thanks but I meant a console command (I'm trying to script something.)
  14. hdparm seems to work but is there a better way (that might update the WebGUI's activity "LED") ?
  15. Makes sense. I thought maybe I misunderstood AVR or my unit had a substandard implementation. Thanks. Sorry OP for the tangent.
  16. 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.
  17. Same. In my case multiple simultaneous transcodes maxed out the RAM drive.
  18. 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...
  19. Emby doesn't intelligently manage temporary transcoding files and can fill your drive in some scenarios. This is especially a problem if you're transcoding to a RAM drive with limited space as described here (the specified command is added to template's Extra Parameters.) Update: I've switched from tmpfs (outlined here) to /dev/shm I solved this with a helper script stored on a share accessible to the Emby container and called from within it. Create it as transcoding-temp-fix.sh and run chmod a+x on it. Here's the script: #!/bin/sh #
  20. Any plans to include iHD for QSV in addition to i965? Otherwise does anyone know of a docker that will convert to HEVC with hardware support for encode AND decode? Handbrake works but no HW decode support.
  21. I removed the Trim plugin (on RC2) but now Fix Common problems is warning me that it's not installed - should I ignore it?
  22. Updated with miscellaneous reliability and display tweaks and switched shutdown trigger from battery level to time-on-battery.
  23. Anyone encoding h265 with quick sync mind sharing their settings? Mine (defaults except for 192kbps audio) practically doubled the size of the h264s it converted.
  24. Glad it was helpful. Actually I've updated it with misc reliability tweaks and a shift from battery level-based shutdown to timer-based shutdown. I was holding off until I had a few natural power outage/shutdowns to test with but I'm reasonably confident it's an improvement.
  25. Are you sure it's random? If e.g. it's reset on startup you can save the good version to your boot drive and copy it over in config/go (which I'm pretty sure runs after plugins are installed)
