  1. Thanks, Trurl. You have been so helpful.
  2. Thanks Trurl. I have removed the disk and started parity rebuild. I have One more question. After the parity rebuild finishes I'm going to add the second parity drive. Do I not check the parity valid box before starting?
  3. I am removing a drive and replacing it with an additional parity drive. Since I am making the array smaller I think I need to use the new config tool, right? I have removed all data from the drive I am removing except for two files I cannot delete using Windows file explorer. I get a message stating I need permission from Tower/Root. Can I just remove this drive without deleting the two files and run a new parity rebuild? I don't need these files anymore. I have looked at solutions for removing locked files, but my knowledge of Linux is limited. A stumbling block is the issue of how to enter the correct path to the server (Tower) from a Windows command prompt. I made several attempts but could never get the path syntax right.
  4. Thanks, I did a search but did not see this.
  5. I created a password to access unRaid, and now my clients cannot access the media files. I cant figure out to add the password requirement to the clients, which uses Kodi. So, I want to eliminate the password requirement to access unRaid and don't know how this should be done. Help
  6. Trurl, When I turned off the disk shares I had a thought. Thinking about the Windows explorer confusion you mentioned in earlier posts, I wondered if that confusion would still be there with these shares removed. So I brought the disk shares back on line and removed the user shares. Having done this, I was then able to delete the old Cache directory on disk 4. I then brought the user shares back online and discovered that my missing plugins and other shares had returned to cache drive. They had not been missing after all. Just lost in the confusion Once again, thanks for the replies. I learned a lot
  7. Thanks Trurl, Everything is fine. and even better than expected. I turned off user shares which allowed me to delete that annoying Cache share with Telnet. Do you have a place to accept donations? Your help was very much appreciated
  8. I have 6 disks plus the cache drive. Disk 4 only has the Cache share and it is empty. However, the cache drive has identical shares, and they are also empty. I have included a pic for each of the two disks in question. Just as a double check, where exactly should I find the delete button, previously described. Note: While looking for the button again, I noticed the Cache share status indicates the share still contains data. SO, I don't know......
  9. Trurl, your discussion describes exactly how I screwed up. Except, it was not unintentional, it was,as the saying goes, "Stupid is as stupid does." But in my defense, I had no idea Linux was case sensitive. Lol Thanks for explaining this to me. Now, the question. I have a user share called "Cache" created from a a top level share on disk 4 by that same name. My cache disk is labeled "cache. I need to delete the "Cache" share. Once I do this I think I will be fine. The problem is that I cannot delete the Cache share on disk 4. I have Googled this , but most solutions discuss what to use, and very little about what syntax to use. I can open telnet. but do not know where to go from there. With Midnight commander I am at a lost as to how to get my network, and the server. Someone suggested using a delete button on the share's setting page, but did not find one. By the way, the Cache directory on disk 4 is empty. I would appreciate a tip on how to delete this share. Thanks
  10. Thanks, Trurl for the reply. I will follow your advice, and if I understand it correctly, all I have to do is to change the lettering of the Cache drive to all lower case letters. That will make it a disk share rather than a user share? I was not aware of this requirement and it probably explains why some things never worked for me in the past. After making this change, then the docker config files should look like this? Minidlna - /mnt/cache/Docker/app data/binex-Minidlna Subsonic - /mnt/cache/Docker/appdata/subsonic Question: should the folder named Docker also be in lower case letters
  11. Thanks for the reply Attached are pics of the cache, docker user share, and television user share` settings. The television settings are typical of the other user share settings. Below are the config directions of the two docker templates I have been trying to install. 1. Minidlna Directions: Configuration /config This is where minidlna will store it's configuration file, database and logs. What I did /mnt/Cache/Docker/appdata/binhex-minidlna Container Path: /config 2. Subsonic Directions: /subsonic : set this path to where you wish Subsonic to store it's configuration. What I did /mnt/cache/Docker/appdata/subsonic/ Container Path: /subsonic Both dockers work but I would like to have the config files located on the cache disk.
  12. Hello, I'm trying to install some dockers, and the config files are not installing where I want them to. I'm trying to install them on the cache drive, but they are being installed on other drives of the array instead . I think this might be due the settings I've chosen for the cache drive or other drives of the array . I'm trying to use the cache drive for config files only. Can someone give me advice on how to prevent this from happening?
  13. Thanks, Raidserver, for the reply. I am away for the holiday and will not be back until Tuesday. I will look at it again then. Thanks
  14. I need some help with getting minidlna to work with my client. There are no files listed by my dlna app, and I'm thinking I don't have my path properly described. I am not at all knowledgeable about the pathing syntax Linux uses. My user share (Movies) is a collection of The contents of my disk shares. The path I entered for Host Path on the setup page is: /mnt/user/Movies/. I also edited the config file to match this entry. This path description is obviously just a guess Note: I don't know if this information is needed, but the name of my unraid box is "Tower." I have tried various other path descriptions, but all have been unsuccessful. I would appreciate any help with this.
  15. Thanks for replying.I changed the name of the two files and that seemed to do the trick. I have never used a password and did not purposely generate one prior to this problem. I am running ver 6.2.4 and have never been asked for a password before, so I was surprised when I was asked for a username and password. Evidently, I did something of which I was not aware. Anyway, problem solved. Thanks
