  1. I've been running Roon in an UNRAID docker for a little over a month now and it works great even after an update is pushed to the server via a Roon end point device. I actually saw a decrease in the amount of time taken to open Roon and queue up a song after moving back to a docker after running it in an Ubuntu VM initially so updates wouldn't break the server (still had issues with the Roon server losing my SMB music shares at random under Ubuntu). Just when I was about to move to NFS for the music shares, xthursdayx announced the updated Roon docker so I gave it go and man does it run great!
  2. @dkerlee I have the Roon docker (steefdebruijn/docker-roonserver with xthursdayx's adjustments) on my cache drive as well and my music on the array. I experience no slow downs when searching for bands for instance (pretty snappy on my end). Sorry you're having performance issues with yours. Is streaming impacted with the slowdown or just searching?
  3. @xthursdayx It's been a crazy month for me personally and work-wise! Ready for this year to be over with. I was going to start with these steps, but then read the Roon docker has been updated so it works updated from an end point device now. Nice! I moved from my Ubuntu VM to the docker and updated successfully (just read I needed to delete the Roon app data folder which I did not). Now I'm restoring a backup. Runs better on the docker than it did in the Ubuntu VM via SMB. Should I remove the docker, delete the app data folder and start again? I chose to remove the image when I removed the docker.
  4. I got it sorted with AOMEI Partition Assistant. Thanks for the responses!
  5. That's my last resort (downloading everything again manually which won't be easy). I'm trying to go a less labor intensive route if possible as it's around 4TBs and 1,000+ files.
  6. As the subject line states, I deleted a NTFS partition on an internal SATA drive I had presented to UNRAID as an unassigned device. The Windows 10 VM that I had reading and writing to the drive is shutdown. Any way to recover the data on that drive in UNRAID? I was tinkering with volume mapping this mounted drive to my Deluge docker and inadvertently deleted the NTFS partition with a bunch of "Linux ISOs" on it.🤦‍♂️
  7. It passed the long SMART test. The array health report failed again (disk 5) with the prior read errors which are now documented on the main dashboard for UNRAID. Anything to be concerned about, or am I good to go?
  8. Thanks for the response. I'll give a long SMART test a shot then.
  9. Greetings UNRAID community. I received the status report below via my email notifications. Disk 5 is active and seems to be working fine, but there are read errors documented in the attached log file. A smart short self-test passed. Do I need to stop and restart my array/dig deeper into the operation of disk 5 further? It's only ~3 months old or so. It's under warranty if I need to replace it. I believe what precipitated this was my UPS inexplicably powered off a few days ago. Parity was rechecked successfully after the UPS turned itself off. There was no power outage with our electrical grid so not sure why the UPS powered off (working on that with CyberPower to figure out what happened there). Here's the emailed report: Event: Unraid Status Subject: Notice [TOWER] - array health report [FAIL] Description: Array has 7 disks (including parity & cache) Importance: warning Parity - WDC_WD120EMFZ-11A6JA0_9RJ5LLHC (sde) - active 32 C [OK] Disk 1 - WDC_WD120EMAZ-11BLFA0_8CK40JJE (sdd) - active 32 C [OK] Disk 2 - ST8000VN0022-2EL112_ZA1AMVH3 (sdg) - active 35 C [OK] Disk 3 - WDC_WD120EMAZ-11BLFA0_8CJWDE6E (sdf) - active 34 C [OK] Disk 4 - WDC_WD120EMFZ-11A6JA0_9JHG38XT (sdc) - active 29 C [OK] Disk 5 - WDC_WD120EMFZ-11A6JA0_XJG0KLNM (sdi) - active 34 C (disk has read errors) [NOK] Cache - Samsung_SSD_860_EVO_1TB_S3Z8NB0K301204A (sdj) - active 36 C [OK] Parity is valid Last checked on Thu 29 Oct 2020 01:02:56 PM CDT (2 days ago), finding 0 errors.

  10. I'm running 571 and know just enough about unraid to be dangerous. I have version 667 running in parallel in an Ubuntu VM although the SMB share is dropping in and out right now (Roon is stuck in a holding pattern of adding music to my library). How can I be of service?
  11. @jowi For what it's worth, Roon will take as much CPU as it's given while analyzing music. Perhaps scale it back some (set to throttled, or remove some cores)? I don't know if that's what's causing your array to lockup, but might be worth looking into. Also, I had an issue where my Xeon CPU would hard lock my system if I ever hit turbo speeds with any heavy CPU load (I could reproduce the hard lock during BOINC or fold@home). Try disabling turbo under the "Tips and Tweaks" app. Perhaps check your IPMI event logs to see if your lockup is hardware related (check for a "CPU_CATERR" event at the same time as the lockup)? If so, perhaps disabling turbo will help if you do have a Xeon 1230. I just realized the i3 in your sig doesn't offer turbo so ignore those steps above if so (just struck them through). Roon settings for reducing CPU load during library analysis Where to disable turbo on your Intel CPU (I'm running an ASRock E3C246D4U & Xeon E-2288G so this may not apply to your setup).
  12. @dkerlee Are you still running Core on Ubuntu? I've managed to avoid updating since my original docker install (version 1.7 (571)).
  13. I wanted to add your stereo might act as a Roon end point if it's on Roon's list of partners. Otherwise, as dkerlee has noted, a raspberry pi, laptop, or casting from your phone will work as well. Roon also supports building your own Roon server (not exactly unraid related :), but wanted to throw that out there) on a supported NUC via their ROCK software. List of partners who can act as a Roon player (my Lyngdorf is seen as a player when I start Roon on my phone or tablet) https://roonlabs.com/partners ROCK for DIY server as an alternative to running Roon on unraid. https://kb.roonlabs.com/Roon_Optimized_Core_Kit If you have Sonos, you can also use them as end points for direct playback.
  14. @dkerlee I believe @NickAll is referring to this. That appears to be for installing Roon bare metal on a dedicated PC like a NUC. I'm going to try installing Roon's server software for Ubuntu on a Ubuntu VM via Unraid and restore my backups from the Roon docker I'm running right now so I can push Roon updates without fear of trashing my Roon server. NO whammies! 😁🤞 Is this the best place to start for steps on installing it on a Unbuntu VM?
  15. Hi, nas_nerd. I'm using the NH-U9S without issue with my setup (ASRock E3C246D4U and Xeon E-2288G).
  16. @dkerlee That's a bummer. Thanks for being a guinea pig for this. It might make sense to pull Roon off of my unraid server and DIY it on some dedicated hardware that they support then. Was hoping to doing it this way on unraid, but it doesn't appear to be officially supported. I'll ping their support and see if there're any plans to remove that update prompt on the client side.
  17. That's interesting, @dkerlee. Thanks for the insight on both fronts (the docker updating and your experience with a VM), and your intent to update it at some point. Much appreciated! I'm pretty content with the Roon server's functionality at the moment so there's no reason I would want to update it right now. My main concern is the prompt on the client side to update which could potentially break it. If there was a way to disable that completely, that would address my concern.
  18. Greetings! Is the best approach here to run Roon in a linux VM as opposed to a docker image in unraid, or am I ok as-is? I have mine running in unraid as a docker (installed "steefdebruijn/docker-roonserver" under community apps for unraid - thx Steef!), but am being prompted to update via the client end on my phone/tablet. I decline the update prompt each time as I'm reading here it can break Roon server-side and render my current backups useless. Someone in my household will likely inadvertently click update and break my Roon server install so I want to prepare for that. I see that an update hasn't been rolled out for this docker in over a year so don't know if this will be maintained (wish I had the skills myself to help with this), or if I should pivot to something else long term. I'm willing to start over with a Room streaming platform where I likely won't lose our play history, playlists, etc. if something goes sideways and I have to restore Roon backups. I've been looking at doing a linux VM for Roon, maybe a NUC dedicated for it (roll my own with ROCK), or just bite the bullet and buy a dedicated streamer to reside in my A/V rack (Aurender, Lumin, Innous, etc.). Any suggestions from experience?
  19. I hope it works for you. I didn't have stability long enough with turbo on to properly run CPU benchmarks. I'm not sure what the performance consequences are with it off other than not having the turbo speed of 5GHz as opposed to the base clock speed of 3.7GHz for the E-2288G. It's likely substantial with 8 cores/16 threads. I hope Intel/ASRock comes out with a fix at some point so we can run it full throttle. 🤞
  20. Yes. Disabling turbo for the Xeon E2288G in UNRAID via the Tips and Tweaks plugin resolved it for many of us.
  21. That would be great if it came out officially, but 2.3 came out in April. I recall installing it initially and had no access to the iGPU for HW transocding until I installed their beta BIOS (2.21a). https://www.asrockrack.com/general/productdetail.asp?Model=E3C246D4U#Download
  22. I had a NVMe SSD installed in my board along with a 12TB SATA HDD on SATA port 0. Both detected in the BIOS and unraid. I could write to the 12TB HDD, but didn't try to on the NVMe SSD. I have since removed the SSD since it was small and of no use to me. Perhaps both the NVMe slot and SATA port 0 are usable concurrently? That would go against the ASRock documentation, but pretty cool if true nonetheless. I need to get me one of those H310s as I'm already running 8 drives. I suppose I could Velcro my SSDs within the case and run them cabled, freeing up a few 3.5" hot plug carriers for big spinners, and/or use the 5.25" bays for 3.5" spinning drives with a SATA pass-through adapter if needed.
  23. Just to give fellow users of this HW who might be dealing with random CPU_CATERR lockups too, the recommendation to set "Enable Intel Turbo" to "No" in the tips and tweaks plugin for unraid has given me the longest run of stability so far (no lockups and I'm running all of my dockers, and a VM full clip). If this continues, I'll be quite happy with the HW upgrades; just hoping for a long-term fix from whoever is the root cause of this (Intel, ASRock, someone else?).
  24. I was eyeballing the Quadro P2000. If I can't get the iGPU going for QSV, that will be my plan B. Are these the best instructions to follow after flashing my BIOS to enable the iGPU in unraid and assigning it to my Emby container for quick sync (will just switch Plex for Emby in the instructions)?
