  1. Hey everyone, thanks for the discussion. It's nice to know that I'm not alone using a QNAP for Unraid. Just following up with some fan news; I set the Fan SMART setting to Manual in the BIOS. Now my fans run at 100% speed. My server is in a networking closet, so I'm not concerned about the noise, and I prefer 100% to whatever they were at before. My drive temps have dropped 15 C. One issue I ran into was when setting my network interface bonding mode within Unraid to balance-alb (Adaptive Load Balancing), my whole network slowed to a crawl. Downloads on all devices peak
  2. Unraid Logo Tweaker Easily change WebGui logo image and URL Please note: After your first save, the form will be blank and you must refresh the page. This is a known bug. I know there are plenty of things for me to fix and improve. I'd very much appreciate any feedback you have. Hello all, I've been tinkering with Unraid plugin development for a couple weeks, and I think I'm ready to share what I've come up with. Unraid Logo Tweaker is a simple plugin that allows you to customize
  3. Just following up in case someone else has this question: Menu="WebGui" works, but Menu="WebGUI" does not.
  4. Thank you so much! Great point about the variable names -- mine are very generic. Thank you for all that you do for the community, @Squid. If I can ask one last question, does anyone know how get a plugin to appear under Tools > Web GUI? I believe I've tried Menu="WebGUI" on my settings .page, but I didn't see it there. However, it could've been any number of other issues in my early code.
  5. Thank you everyone for reading. To the plugin gurus like @Squid, @dlandon, @bonienl, and more, this is probably the easiest Unraid dev question you've ever been asked. TL;DR: How do I inject a simple line of JavaScript into the entire WebGUI? I'm making a simple plugin to change the href of the WebGUI Unraid logo. I'd prefer it link to my server IP rather than the Unraid website. Also, I'd like to learn Unraid development and fill some holes in the plugin documentation for aspiring plugin developers. My plugin page in settings currently reads and writes to a
  6. Sorry to reply so late -- I can't believe it's Wednesday already. It's been a month since I installed Unraid on my QNAP, and I'm so happy I did. My only complaint is that I don't have any fan control. I replaced the stock fans with Noctuas and flipped them from exhaust to intake, but my drive temps are still uncomfortably high, but still within spec. The fan controller isn't detected by the System AutoFan plugin, so I'll have to figure out some kind of hardware modification. I do like that it's low-power and isn't loud or overly obnoxious. It definitely passes the wife
  7. Hello all, I've recently jumped on the Nextcloud bandwagon and it's been great for my personal and business needs. But the Nextcloud icon sticks out pretty bad in macOS Big Sur. I rarely see it, but it bugs me just knowing that it's there. I've made an icon in the Big Sur style -- which I don't like, but it's here to stay. I've attached the .icns file if you'd like to use it for yourself. Installation: In your Applications folder, select the Nextcloud app and either right-click and choose Get Info or hit Command + i on the keyboard. On the Info window that appears,
  8. Thank you, that's really good to know! Mine are the ST6000NE0021-2EN11C model. Looks like I've got more work to do cooling these things. I know I shouldn't be using a NAS enclosure, but it was free and it passes the wife test.
  9. Hey, everyone. I run Unraid in an 8-bay QNAP NAS enclosure. I run 3 6TB Ironwolf drives (ST6000NE0021-2EN11C) in the first 3 bays, and my idle drive temps are pretty high (currently 45C, 45C, 41C, respectively). Ambient temp is 16-18C in a cold Minnesota basement. During a parity check, the temps of the first 2 bays can push 50C. I'm wondering what temps your Ironwolf drives run at. Seagate rates these at a maximum temp of 60C, but that makes me uncomfortable. There are 2 120mm fans flowing over all 8 bays, and I've replaced the stock fans with some Noctuas I've had laying around.
  10. Awesome! I'm happy to contribute.
  11. Nice! I'm definitely grateful to be able to boot other OSes on this thing. I'm worried that my Synology is getting close to end-of-life and it's locked to the OS on it. It's nice to stay updated on the QNAP. And it definitely fits the bill for my needs right now. Eventually I'd love something beefier that could do video transcoding, but 2020 is weird and money is tight. I know I'm preaching to the choir right now, but Unraid is a pretty incredible tool, even on older hardware.
  12. Hello all, I've been running Unraid on my QNAP TS-853A for about a month now. I intend to use Unraid full-time on this box with this as the primary file server in my home. Before switching to Unraid, I Googled if it was possible to run Unraid on a QNAP and the consensus was: "Probably, just try it." As long as you can access the BIOS and change the boot order, you should be able to boot into Unraid. Some people report not all of their drive bays working depending on which SATA controller was being used (that forum thread is from 2016, so an update may have added compatibility for t
  13. I hope I'm allowed to contribute, too. I adopted a QNAP TS-853A that was thrown away because it kept getting hit by QSnatch. The previous owner got fed up and switched to Synology. I converted it to an Unraid box, and it's been fitting my needs quite well. I threw together a case icon in the default/Mex style. Feel free to use. I'm including the layered .svg file for any modifications you'd want to make. Edit: The previews are looking a little blurry to me when posted here. They look fine in the dashboard. Sorry, I haven't used a forum in probably 15 years.
  14. Just posting an issue (and solution) I ran into today. I haven't read through all 16 pages of this thread to see if anyone else has experienced this, so I apologize if this has been covered before. If my peer name has an ampersand (&) in it, my connection does not work. After removing the ampersand, my connection immediately started working again (using both the macOS and Android WireGuard clients). Hopefully this helps someone else who might be pulling their hair out while wondering why their VPN connection stopped/never worked.
