  1. I think reply there will get people who has the experience with nxfilter docker share their thoughts steps that I took: 0. Stop AdGuard, stopped docker and restart the docker without AdGuard auto start. 1. in console, 2. create a container (see screenshot) I set port 53 to UDP. All other ports are TCP. according to this instruction. https://hub.docker.com/r/packetworks/nxfilter-base 3. the container creation was successful but, there is no IP mapping. no IP and port mapping. AdGuard shows the correct port mapping I have only one physical ethernet port on motherboard. I previously get AdGuard (from Unraid APP) working properly by setting fixed IP to
  2. Hi, I read a few post about fan control and Dynamix Auto Fan Control. Is there any way to control 3pin fan speed? My DELL MB only has two headers for 3pin system fan (BIOS only have option to run full speed or controlled by BIOS). The CPU fan is 4pin PWM. The rear 3pin system fan is running at (appear to be) voltage control mode. The other 3pin system (facing HDDs) is not running at all after briefly running during BIOS POST. Thanks!
  3. I read the Parity Swap Procedure carefully. Just want to double check. Assume I have Data Drive A, Old Parity B, New Parity C. After the Parity Swap Procedure - Step 14 , let's say for some reason (maybe B will be re-purposed in other places) I want to remove B. So before step 15, I will unassign B and start the array, right? PS: The real reason that I take this way (instead of just replace B with C, let C rebuild off A) is: my Data Drive A is the oldest. So I think by copying parity from B to C would have virtually zero stress on A. Otherwise if C rebuild from A, and A died in the process, then things will be very sticky? Also in this way, I can familiar myself with the parity swap procedure. Suggestions and comments are welcomed. Thanks!
  4. I do believe that I had docker and vm turned off in settings (so no docker and VM on menu bar) . Because I was just setting up and hadn't enable anything yet. I didn't install the SSD at the very beginning because I am moving data off my SSD. NOW: I have backuped my dockers and VMs using CA backup V2 just now. So I am safe to experiment. I turn off docker and vm in settings. Check again, the files on Array Disk are [correction 5/5/2020 12pm] still there. Use stat command to change their dates and they are not modified since 4/29. SO it is safe to say the active docker and vms are on SSD cache. At that time: It could be that the mover issued "delete" to Array Disk and somehow had significant delays in my cases. Maybe the delay is caused by parity build? Then a few hours later, while those file is still on Array Disk, I finally started to use Dockers. So they stuck here.
  5. Thanks for the reply. I am new to unraid, 10 days into trail version now. I did install CA backup v2 from App Store. The version is:
  6. Hello, Could some one reply my concern? Currently, the latest files of dockers and VMs are indeed stored on Cache Drive. BUT "/mnt/disk1/system/docker" and "/mnt/disk1/system/libvirt" are still on disk1. Previously, stopped dockers and VMs, set share folders as cache drive "preferred" and clicked "move". Before invoking mover, Docker and VM are off for sure and they stays off during the process. After invoking mover, they are present on both cache and data drives. Question: Can I delete "/mnt/disk1/system/docker" and "/mnt/disk1/system/libvirt" manually? If they are not deleted, will they overwrite the files on Cache Drive when mover is invoked? (share -> cache drive preferred, see previous screenshot). "Preferred" moves file from array to cache drive thus over write files on cache drive?
  7. "/mnt/disk1/system/docker" and "/mnt/disk1/system/libvirt" are still on disk1. Are they safe to delete?
  8. During that time, the parity disk is building. (because those docker/vm files have been present on the disk1 since the very beginning when I first configured and started the array). Before invoking mover, Docker and VM are off for sure and they stays off as for now. After mover, they are present on both cache and data drives. Mover Settings
  9. Hi, I wish to use cache drive for cache, docker and vm. Initially I didn't have cache drive enabled, so the vm and docker ended up on the array. I stopped them all, make sure those share folders were set as cache drive "preferred" and clicked "move". Question: BTW, can I delete "/mnt/disk1/system/docker" and "/mnt/disk1/system/libvirt" since they are already moved to cache drive? Did I set those share and CA backup plugin correctly? Also installed backup plugin. I created "/mnt/user/backup" folder and subfolders using mkdir in terminal. My settings are like the following screenshot. PS: I read these two FAQs and come up with the following setting. Thanks!
  10. Sure. I guess offsite or cold backup could be more important than dual parity. Other suggestions?
  11. Hi, I have got a good condition DELL Optiplex 3010 (i3 2Core/4Threads, 2.xGHz, 8GB DDR3) and plan to turn it into a NAS. I currently have a very old HP slim tower (2TB retail WD Red WD20EFRX purchased in 2013) running freenas 9.2 (2GB RAM, a no go for ZFS). I don't have a lot money, so didn't have redundancy in FreeNAS (RAID1, etc.). Currently my redundancy is cold backup to a USB hard drive.\ Also my most recent working files back up to Cloud Drive like Dropbox, etc. I have only used 800GB drive over the six years. I don't have a lot of data, nor am I interested in data hoarding. My main use of the NAS: Service life of 10 years (Who knows how technology will evolve in 10 years) 1. SyncThings, sync most recent files on all my PC and laptops (distributed backup) 2. Migrate existing data 800GB 3. Growing demand of photo and video storage (upgraded my camera last year), estimate 200GB per year. 4. Plex server, mostly host my own family videos. Maybe host some classic movies, but not a lot (I don't have a lot of time watching movies), maybe 1TB at most. 5. Music sever (100GB music), stream to my phone (Android), use Plex? or other software? 6. Running some light weight VM, maybe a Win10 VM for software testing, hand brake transcoding when I upgrade to Ryzen CPU 7. Reliable, spend minimal time on maintaining. I used FreeNas for many years, spend countless hours. What I have: 1. Optiplex 3010, (i3 2Core/4Threads, 2.xGHz, 8GB DDR3, two drive caddies) In three years, when I will upgrade my main PC to Ryzen 5xxx, I could use some of my current PC parts (AMD Ryzen 3600x, MB, and RAM) to upgrade it. 2. Six year old 2TB WD Red 3. Bought a like new 2TB Seagate desktop drive from a local person (didn't know SMR at that time) 4. Spare LiteOn MLC 256GB M.2 SATA SSD 5. Spare BX100 500GB 2.5 SATA SSD 6. Drive cage (3 x 3.5) installed at the 5.25 bay on Optiplex. 7. I do like to upgrade to 10GBe or SFP+, 10G network in three years. My Question: Your suggestion of hard drive buying strategy? My thought is reusing my 2TB, starting with a 8TB or 12TB as parity drive (since I cannot later install hard drive larger than parity). Wait for a WD external drive deal, buy two. One to replace 2TB, the other to be used as cold backup (backup most important data from Unraid to this USB external.) Or maybe cheap out for now, using SMR 2TB as parity and wait for deal? Should I buy a better drive for parity like HGST Data Center Drive (they are not more expensive than WD Red on BHphoto at retail price) and only put shucked drives as data drives? I can put my current HP (FreeNAS) somewhere offsite as third backup. I guess buying hard drive slowly over the years, end up two data + two parity (14.4TB usable space) + a cold backup, which are probably sufficient for my need in 10 years. Thanks!
