  1. There seems to be a bug or oversight where hot-plugged drives do not give a preclear icon/option in the MAIN tab but it is still possible to run it from the TOOLS tab. (I tried obvious things like refreshing the page.) Please fix. Regarding the issue of this plugin disappearing after a reboot... After I updated to latest version to fix this very issue, I still needed to reinstall the plugin after a reboot -- at least twice more. (I should send you a diagnostics file again.)
  2. To be clear, if I have a trial key that had expired 15 days ago, does getting a 15-day extension make any difference?
  3. Does the 15-day extension start when the 30-day trial ends OR when you start the 15-day trial? (There's a subtle difference between the two.)
  4. This question has been asked here many times. It can be done on a separate machine.
  5. I was wrong earlier. But I meant not including parity, pool, boot, or unassigned. It is 28 right?
  6. Other than the obvious (not being able to start the array), what features are blocked out when the trial key expires? I'm thinking of having a second Unraid machine that is dedicated to only running preclears, and prefer not to have to purchase another license for it. How about VMs? Does that feature work with expired trial key? I'm guessing dockers wouldn't work because they always need the array? Or can dockers be run from an unassigned device? And could you still do a disk share (SMB) of an unassigned device? I searched around and was unable to figure this stuff out -- or at least not explicitly spelled out anywhere.
  7. Currently, if a share has "Included Disk(s)" or "Excluded Disk(s)" and you reorder the Disk slots, the selection for the shares are not updated accordingly. I sighted this in 6.9.0-beta30 but it's likely always been this way. What would be nice is if it did automatically update it for you. Even better is having a "reordering wizard", a "replace parity drive wizard", etc..
  8. In "Array Devices" section the disk names are currently quite verbose "(<model number>_<serial number> - <size> (sb<letter>)". This is for the most part fine, but I would prefer to omit <size> since there is already a column showing it. The ability to rearrange and hide columns here would be nice too. I would also prefer to omit the <model number>. But even better might be to allow specifying your own identifier/nickname. And on top of that to give some formatting string, like "%nickname_%model_%serial (%sb)" -- you know, like printf().
  9. +1 for multiple arrays Is this targeted for a specific future version yet? Like 7.0? Would this allow going past the limit of 24 disks?
  10. I often run preclear on 3 to 4 at the same time. Saves a lot of time because it takes roughly the same amount of time as running just one.
  11. For a large share, spanning several disks, using cache_pool=yes, allocation_method=fillup, and split_level=top_two... I don't know if this is due to Mover or the way I use the SMB or occasionally do manual 'rsync -avX' between disks, but when I check 'stat' on split directories, the modify timestamps are mismatching for some but identical for others. (I am only using user shares; never enabled disk shares.) 1. How is it intended to be maintained? (i.e. Should they ever differ? Is it okay for it to differ?) 2. Which modified date is given to the Windows SMB when they do differ? (first disk index takes priority?) 3. Is there some method/command to synchronize the modified_date across all parts of all split directories? I looked into using unBalance plugin but it doesn't run as root and I'm worried whether it deals with the above issues 'correctly' (whatever that may mean). Also I was worried about security because the unBalance page doesn't present a user login screen (does it use the same cookie?). I have since changed to split_level=manual but I know it only affects future writes to the share, it does not work retroactively and there is currently no built-in way for Unraid to re-adjust it. I wish there was tho. A way to tell Mover which disk to use for each directory, and for it to 'gather' for you.
  12. Not sure how feasible this is, but when I have multiple browser windows/tabs open to the server, dismissing a notification in one does not dismiss it in all of them. Can this be made to dismiss in across all? I guess this might make sense to be user-specific even if logged in from multiple devices to have it synced, but a different 'user' should still see the notification. On top of this, if possible, in the agent API, to trigger notification dismissal there too.
  13. If 'Display Settings'->'Page View' is set to 'Tabbed', and I'm on Main->'Pool Devices' or 'Boot Device', then refreshing the page in Chrome browser (probably any browser), it goes back to 'Array Devices'. But if instead I was on 'Unassigned Devices' or 'Array Operation' tab, then it stays on the same tab. This is inconsistent behavior and a bit inconvenient. Probably easy to fix.
  14. Every time I reboot my server, the Preclear plugin disappears as if it uninstalled itself (or something else uninstalled it). And I have to reinstall it again. Is this a known issue? Anybody else seeing this issue? It's not happening with any of my other plugins. I'm on 6.9.0-beta30 with trial key.
