  1. Thanks guys. Got my plugins all back and operational again. I deleted and recreated my docker.img file, and my dockers are back as well. Unraid was saying my SSD CRC count was going up. Not sure why, so I did a balance and will keep an eye on future crc errors. I think my server is not feeling well! In the end, Unraid did it's job just fine -- it kept my data safe, and kept running during the UPS event. The plugins and dockers... well, they didn't fare as well, but these are community applications so I guess I can expect this. Thanks for you help, and I'll mark this as resolved.
  2. Ah ha! I one by one renamed the following plugins back to .plg, and after rebooting I noticed they were no longer to be found: -rw------- 1 root root 3.1K Jul 12 00:00 /boot/config/plugins/ca.backup2.plg -rw------- 1 root root 6.1K Jul 27 00:00 /boot/config/plugins/ca.update.applications.plg -rw------- 1 root root 66K Aug 16 15:43 /boot/config/plugins/community.applications.plg Is this as simple as re-downloading these plugins? Or is there more I should be looking into? Also, I for some reason have lost the ability to view dockers running in the Docker Container panel on the dashboard. When I view them under Docker, they are there, and operational. Has anyone heard of this happening before?
  3. In order to troubleshoot, should I do a bulk move of all the files in the plugins directory to another directory, and move them back one at a time? I understand that I'd have to reboot after each move to see what breaks. Thanks,

  5. Hi guys, If anyone can give me some pointers on what to do next, I would be very appreciative! I replaced my UPSs batteries by hot-swapping them. No big deal, Unraid and the server just kept on going thanks to my Supermicro's redundant power supplies. Anyhow, I noticed that a couple of my dockers were missing their thumbnail icons, and after poking around saw that they were all using wrong IPs (with the bridging dockers set to use Failing to resolve the problem within my limited skill-set, I rebooted -- only to discover that I could not get past the Starting Samba kernel message. Odd, this! So I rebooted into Safe mode, and have provided my diagnostics file. Any advise on how to get back to normal operations? Thank you so much!
  6. Hi team! I've been a long time Headless Kodi+Mysql guy, but it seems the Headless Kodi hack effort has died off. So, I'm looking at Emby and Jellyfin, but Jellyfin feels a little raw at the moment (have to build my own code? Yah, I'm just a lazy end-user...) With Emby, I seem to be in the minority use case - I don't plan on doing any transcoding. So, I'm not sure if I can use Emby just for raw passthrough of all my media? I have one (maybe two) Shield devices on which I watch my media, so I just really want a centralized library that can be updated automatically when Sonarr and Radarr pull something new down. What's the scoop my friends? Thanks!
  7. Just figured out how to turn on signatures. :) Thanks for the feedback, guys! @meepCan I ask what issues you've had with Nvidia? I'm seeing more problems with AMD (reset bug being the big one). Since I don't want to powerdown my server very often, I'm kinda leaning towards Nvidia. Note, I'm not doing any transcoding, or anything like that, which is what seems to be causing the most problem. I like to keep it as simple as I can!
  8. Just following up on my MariaDB woes. It looks like the entire docker container died after logs filled it up (which, in turn appears to be caused after all my shares disappeared). So, following Squid's advice, I deleted my docker image, re-installed all my containers, and MariaDB is happy again. Hope this helps someone else in future!
  9. Hi there, I was getting the endless loop of 200507 18:44:16 mysqld_safe Logging to syslog. 200507 18:44:16 mysqld_safe Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /config/databases So I stopped the container, removed the appdata file(s) and removed (including image) the docker. Downloaded new docker, configured it, and went to check the logs before doing anything else.

  10. Thank you! Looks like it's a low level bug that won't be fixed. I guess this is one of those things where we will just have to accept it and reboot. Good bye, 45 days of up time!
  11. Hey there! I'm a very long time Unraid user, and I've been watching and reading about using Unraid as a "do it all" platform: Windows 10 Daily Driver Occasionally some gaming (Civ 6, Cities Skyline, etc) Media Server Media Leech (nzb, radarr, sonarr, etc etc) Unifi Controller for my Wifi Scan to unraid share ... you get the picture, Unraid is at the center of everything I do. I've been very content to have a laptop do my daily driving chores, and for Unraid do it's thing in a server rack. But, two things have changed: I've moved into a condo, and I'm going "oooh... aaahhh..." over the upcoming Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 release. The FS2020 is making me want to upgrade my hardware so I can play it at ideal settings. That means a Radeon VII + Ryzen 7 Pro 2700X for an AMD solution, or a Intel i7-9800X + NVIDIA RTX 2080 for a Intel/Nvidia solution. I'm not married to AMD or Intel, or Nvidia. I'm also not made of gobs of money, so I'm kinda inclined towards AMD simply for bang : buck ratio. I'd also like to keep my daily-driver fussing around to a minimum. I like some fussing around, but lately I find I don't have as much time to dedicate to my hobby as I would like. <sigh> I also have a Supermicro 846 chassis, which I'd like to continue to use. So my replacement motherboard I'd like to have IPMI, but it's just a like. Since the server/workstation has a noise reducing server rack box that I stuff in right by my knees when I'm at the desk, I guess IPMI is not essential, but I sure do like not having to get down to the floor to see what's up with the server!! I like to experiment (that is, fart around) with other VMs, so it'd be cool if I could do a Macinabox, but it's not mandatory. So, apologies for the long wind-up, but here's my questions: 1) Would you recommend Unraid + Windows 10 VM as a daily driver? 2) Assuming yes, and wanting to have as much Gaming performance as I want for FS2020, and not so much fussing around, which Video card would you recommend? 3) Which Motherboard (32 gigs minimum) + processor would you recommend? I understand IOMMU (and SpaceInvader One really does a fantabulous job of explaining this subject!), so I'm cool with editing xml files and such, though I get slightly less comfortable messing about with extracting vbios. Though, a well written tutorial I can follow. (Ask my wife, I learn to follow instructions well!) I'm leaning towards a an Ryzen 9 3900, and a Radeon RX 5700XT... and a nice X570-A Pro by MSI or perhaps an Asus Pro WS x 570-ACE motherboard. But then I get "scared" by all the problems that people have with doing windows + unraid + gpu Passthroughs and the like. Does anyone have a daily driver that just works for them? So, I bare my anguish to the internet, and I look forward to the community helping me with making decisions on my next build. Thank you!
  12. Hi folks! My server seems to have said "shares? We don't want no steenking shares!" and took them away from me. Googling around I saw someone saying that it's probably caused by the mover log being turned on. I have since turned it off. I haven't rebooted my server, so I attach the diagnostics, and am wondering if a simple reboot will clear the problem, or do I need to do more? Thanks in advance!
  13. I've always liked the ability to add any sized drive to the array. What I would like to see is a mobile friendly version of the GUI! Love unraid, and have been using it since the early days. Continuously impressed at what I can do with it!
  14. Thanks... The issue was entirely my set up. The problem had to do with some oddities in the Cache drive with a cd: user: Transport endpoint is not connected error. I deleted the appdata\unifi-controller folder. A reboot later and a re-install of the docker, and I can assign my user name and password.
  15. Nope... reading the controller manual, it's supposed to ask me for a admin username and password... but it didn't. So I thought the docker had a default username/password for first time setup. Would it be the username/password of the AP's?
