  1. I am looking for the best way to implement a full bidirectional sync between one or more windows PCs and the server, using something like osync/bsync or other rsync based scripts. The goal is to have any changes in files on the server or client side be reflected immediately on the other, but with the server side not deleting files, and keeping soft backups of changed files. Ideally I'd also like to be able to sync just select directories with PCs that may not have enough storage for all of it. Is there any way to set up something like this?
  2. Array is 12TB, most full disk has 2TB free. The backup size is less than 40GB and it starts running but fails after less than a minute every time. I've tried high water and most free. Cache is set to yes. The cache drive has > 200GBfree. I get no meaningful event log errors and nothing shows up in the unraid system log. I have a diagnostic file saved, just lmk where to upload it if you need it.
  3. ok so I was sure there was a good tutorial somewhere on correct way to export the SSL certificate for other services to use for end to end encryption, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Does anyone know the one I mean, or can maybe just point me in the right direction?
  4. ok so I installed it, but important question: where can I set the SNMP community string?
  5. currently not showing as installable in CA with 6.9.0 RC2 and Nerd Tools 2021-01-08 Is this intended?
  6. I've already tried both of those... also I did finally just turn on 2FA on gmail and assign app tokens to my smtp clients. Once again Bitwarden is working with it, but unraid is not.
  7. I'm using literally the same settings as I am using in bitwarden, and bitwarden is working fine. I am using an account without 2FA and using the allow insecure apps option in gmail. All I am getting is Test result: Authorization failed
  8. I can't get google authenticator to work, it won't let me enroll, says I'm putting in the wrong code. Also the admin account keeps resetting itself to username admin password password and I can't disable login to it without also locking my other admin account out (when I disable login for user admin, my other user suddenly gets blocked from accessing the admin panel) which makes it... not really useable. Also I found out that turning on the google authenticator MFA also affects clients logging on from the LAN, but doesn't affect the default admin account (fortunately, in this one case, because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to get back into the admin panel after turning it on, to turn it off again.) so yeah I need to get MFA working, but only require it for users accessing from outside the LAN, and also I need to not let literally anyone on the internet admin my VPN server.
  9. What do you mean port 80? specifying a port is required but you should be able to change it, unless you mean the inbound port past the container NAT, in which case it's not exposed on the outside so it shouldn't matter.
  10. ok I'm gonna nitpick here and say that's moving it. Functionally the data has moved and is no longer at the path where applications are looking for it. What... the fuck? why? appdata is or should be by its nature assigned a static path by the applications that use it. You don't want appdata on the array, and with this arrangement, how do you even control where it goes if you actually point something at the share? This seems like a really poor design choice from the perspective of safe data storage. It explains perfectly why I had this issue and why I was confounded by it: doing it that way seems insane to me so it never crossed my mind. Sorry, that's just frustrating. OK Again I still don't understand why you would ever want to point them to the share if you can't effectively control what device pool the data ends up on. The UI intuitively makes it sound as if the data will go to the pool location you specify, but I'm not entirely convinced that's the case. Can I trust it to do that? I explicitly want the data to exist on the docker pool and only on the docker pool. That is where my apps are already pointing at this point, and it's where I need SMB access to pull/put files such as for nginx. So this brings me to a new question of, is there no way to share an existing directory in unraid? will I fuck something up if I try to call samba directly to do it? I would, for example, really like to make a share mapping to a directory that already exists and is full of files I want to access without moving them. e.g. /mnt/docker/appdata/nginx/html/www/ so that I can give someone access to tamper with the website without giving them access to the whole drive.
  11. I am using this and it works, although as of unraid 6.9.0 RC2 it appears that the alias no longer works when called with the exec command in shell scripts.
  12. Here's what I did create new pool, name it docker add single disk to new pool unpack the contents of my old docker unassigned device disk to the new docker pool. The volume contains a directory named 'appdata' try to share the pool in shares. Select cache:only and select pool:docker, name the share data try to go to \\server\data, find the folder empty go to console, and see that it has created a new directory, 'data' in /mnt/docker/ and shared that. I need to share the 'appdata' folder in the docker volume, so I rename the 'appdata' share that I'm not using for apps (cache:preferred, pool:cache) to 'appcache', and rename the 'app' share to 'appdata' All my dockers break look in \\server\appdata share, and see that it is empty! In the console, see that /mnt/docker/ now has an 'appcache' directory that contains all of the files that used to be in the 'appdata' directory. check on the 'appcache' share, and see that it is still using pool:cache? change it to cache:only, but it still is connected to the data on the docker pool rename 'appdata' to 'appdata2' and 'appcache' to 'appdata'. Now the data is back in the /mnt/docker/appdata directory where it belongs, but I can't unlink it from the 'appdata' share, and I can't link a new share to it even after restarting the docker service and all my dockers, I can no longer access any of them from my browser, despite seeing no changes in the config How boned am I?
