  1. I do have data I would like to migrate forward. However I was thinking I could setup a new system with new hdd's and then later plug in the old unraid hdd's one by one and copy the data from them into the new array. As most of the old hdd's won't be reused on this new array. Does this sound like a good approach?
  2. Hi all, I am in a bit of an usual position. My unraid server’s motherboard died in 2014 and I never got round to fixing it. Now I am finally ready to replace it, but figure I might as well upgrade to the latest version of unraid. Is this possible for free using my old license key ” Single unRAID Server "Plus" USB Flash registration key.” And if so, what is the best procedure to carry out the upgrade? Thanks!
  3. That sounds very sensible, thank you very much for all your (and everyone else's) help! Danny
  4. Hi, I’ve got a backup of all my critical data thankfully. I’ll run the correcting parity check and then another non-correcting check as you suggest. And in the future I’ll be sure to pre-clear the disks before adding them. Also with regarding to copying over config from the old usb stick, what is the procedure. I had quite a few things setup, like unmenu and lots of stuff installed from that, the auto temperature shutdown scripts etc. Basically, can I copy all/part of the config or should I do it all from scratch (bearing in mind the original system was on a slightly older version of v5)? Thanks again for all your help! Danny
  5. The second parity check came back with the same results, 50 errors. Shall I set it to correct parity now? Also does that SMART report look? Thanks again, Danny
  6. Hi, Please find attached the smart report and I've started another non-correcting parity check. Thanks again, Danny smart.txt
  7. Hi, All the files appear to be there and I've check some of the videos play etc. I didn't pre-clear that disk, as far as I know it works fine. But I could run some sort of scan on it if you recommend that? Thanks, Danny
  8. Excellent, user shares was turned off, after turning it on I can see all my shares. So next step run a correcting parting check? Thanks again
  9. Thanks gents. I've got it up and running again. The parity check found 50 errors, shall I run a correcting parity check now? Also I noticed the samba folder structure is different. I can see the drives via smb but not my old folder structure of: /Video/SD Video HD Video /Music etc This is the current folder structure: root@Tower:/mnt# ls -l total 0 drwxrwx--- 8 nobody users 176 2012-12-06 04:07 disk1/ drwxrwx--- 9 nobody users 216 2013-02-27 09:06 disk2/ drwxrwx--- 9 nobody users 216 2013-02-27 09:06 disk3/ drwxrwx--- 7 nobody users 152 2013-04-02 11:01 disk4/ drwxrwx--- 8 nobody users 192 2013-06-19 13:54 disk5/ root@Tower:/mnt#
  10. Hi, I had a look there but I can't see the option: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8815457/New%20Unraid%20Server%2004.JPG Thanks, Danny
  11. Hi, So I've plugged in the drives and arranged them in the same order as on the old server: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8815457/new%20and%20old%20unraid%20-%20comparison%2001.JPG (New server is on the left and a screenshot of the old config on the right) However on the new config page I can't see a trust parity check box? https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8815457/new%20and%20old%20unraid%20-%20comparison%2001b.JPG Thanks in advance, Danny
  12. Thanks, I've emailed support and moved the drives to the new machine, but not yet connected them. Does the order I add the drives back to the system matter?
  13. I started the array and confirmed I could see files and checked the playback of some of the videos. So next steps: What do you mean by 'do new config'? Also how complicated would it be to move to using the new usb stick, as I get the feeling the old one is it's on it's last legs! Thanks, Danny
  14. UPDATE: I fixed the networking issue by disabling the other port in the BIOS.
  15. I have got the new server up and running with the newly built drive. This is running from a brand new usb stick and I've configured it to have the same IP address as the old machine (which I've left turned off). The server has two network ports and appears to alternate between them after each reboot. This means I have to move the cable each time, any ideas why that could be? Also with regards to creating a new array with only the newly built drive. I'd just like to confirm the procedure is as follows: Select the newly built drive as Disk 1 (Disk icon turns blue) Click start. Wait for the array to be built. PS. screen shot of the new server GUI with the newly built drive selected as Disk 1 (but not yet started) https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8815457/New%20Unraid%20Server%2003.JPG Thanks, Danny
