  1. I'm fine with LimeTech charging subscription fees for any kind of service, whether cloud-based backup, priority access to tech support, or any other service for which they incur ongoing costs. I hope such services are made available to licensees as well as future customers who choose to acquire Unraid through subscriptions. As long as LimeTech continues to offer traditional (non-subscription) Unraid OS licenses that include access to all 'core OS features' and upgrades, I will be rooting for them as they expand their customer base and revenue stream through subscription offering
  2. No, we really got burned by a bunch of greedy companies, many of which started out by pushing subscriptions as options only to later remove the ability to buy traditional licenses. I have two packages I can think of right now where the publishers removed features and then charged customers subscription fees to get the features back. You say "of course," but you are the first person to clearly articulate what LimeTech means by a 'core' feature of the OS versus a "premium feature." Cloud-based backups was another example I had actually written up but deleted for brevity when I wa
  3. Fast forward four months: Which is it? Will customers who bought licenses still get "all future upgrades and features" or are there going to be new, "premium features" developed which will only be available to subscribers? Every major upgrade of Unraid has included "features not already included with the [prior version of] the OS." In the future, would such new features be termed "premium features" only available to subscribers? Finally, are we conflating "features" with "services"? I'm fine with there being a subscription offered for direct access to priorit
  4. I did as you directed and it worked perfectly! Unraid rebooted and immediately flagged the drive's health after providing a notification of the reallocated sector. Here's the file before and after acknowledging the condition: root@Unraid-N5550:/boot/config/plugins/dynamix# cat monitor.ini [smart] cache.5="1" root@Unraid-N5550:/boot/config/plugins/dynamix# cat monitor.ini [smart] cache.5="1" cache.ack="true" Thanks again. It would have taken me a long time to find that without your help. That's a supercomputer compared to my Thecus N5550 Unraid box! Atom
  5. Thank you, that's exactly what I wanted! I really appreciate all of your effort. I'll let you know how it goes. Which QNAP model?
  6. You might want to back off on the condescension. I started working with hard drives when they had physical labels that listed the bad sectors; you would type in the list when initializing the drives. You can just see the corner of a metal computer case in background of that photo -- it's a CP/M-80 Z80 system that I built, initially with floppies and later upgraded with a 5MB (yes, megabyte), Tandon TM501, 5.25", full-height, drive interfaced to the computer with an MFM-to-SCSI adapter. I built that computer before IBM released a PC. I was already an embedded systems engineer at that time.
  7. No problem at all; I appreciate your help. I didn't take any action yet based on the content of the file. I'm not in a hurry, so let me know whenever it's convenient for you.
  8. I've got an 8-bay QNAP and it's working fine. The Thecus, on the other hand, is pretty much abandoned with no software updates in years. I took out the DOM, built a power cable, and attached my 1TB Samsung 840 EVO in its place. Thecus was kind enough to pre-punch holes in the top to screw a 2.5" drive up there. (see attached photo) Looking at disk.cfg, I do wonder if deleting it would cause me to have to reconfigure a boatload of stuff. Also, I'm not seeing any line that looks like it's related to the acknowledgement of the thumbs down health status. But I'll have to try it l
  9. Thank you! I don't rm, I mv -- momma didn't raise no fools! My Unraid box (repurposed Thecus N5550) is doing a parity check right now, so I'll let that finish before I start experimenting, rebooting, etc. Really appreciate the help.
  10. Thanks Vr2lo! Here's the output of the ls command on /boot/config: root@Unraid-N5550:/boot/config# ls -lrt total 88 drwx------ 2 root root 4096 Nov 30 06:15 wireguard/ drwx------ 2 root root 4096 Nov 30 06:15 ssh/ -rw------- 1 root root 33 Nov 30 06:15 machine-id -rw------- 1 root root 169 Nov 30 06:16 docker.cfg drwx------ 3 root root 4096 Nov 30 06:16 ssl/ -rw------- 1 root root 256 Nov 30 06:16 Trial.key -rw------- 1 root root 119 Nov 30 06:18 flash.cfg -rw------- 1 root root 106 Nov 30 07:13 network.cfg -rw------- 1 root root 71 Nov 30 07:13 go dr
  11. You are correct and that aligns with what I know about SMART attributes. (Don't get me started about the stupidity of not being able to clear UDMA CRC errors -- which are almost always caused by bad cables or connectors. I've got a perfectly healthy drive with a bunch of UDMA CRC errors left over from some long-ago-corrected cabling issue.) I did acknowledge it, turning the thumbs down into a thumbs up, but then had second thoughts. Now I want to "undo" my acknowledgement so that the drive health goes back to a thumbs-down on the Dashboard. As I wrote pre
  12. Thanks, but that didn't affect the thumbs-up I am seeing on the Dashboard. It started at a thumbs up "healthy" on the cache drive and it stayed at a thumbs up "healthy" even though there is one reallocated sector. I want it to go back to showing thumbs down for any drive with more than 0 reallocated sectors -- like it did before I acknowledged the thumbs down on that cache drive.
  13. Sorry for the convoluted subject line. I'll explain. I have a 1TB SSD with a single reallocated sector. I've set that up as my cache drive, but the Dashboard tab on Unraid was showing a thumbs-down 👎 next to "healthy" for that drive. So I clicked on it to override it to healthy, thinking that the status going to unhealthy again will alert me to new sector reallocations. But I had second thoughts and wondered how I could reset it so that it would go back to the default behavior of a thumbs-down for that SSD. At first, I hoped it was a browser cookie, but I proved that wrong.
  14. I have a directory within a share that I wish to sync: /mnt/user/Unraid_Public/Sissy/Music I put that path in to a clean install of the Syncthing app on my Unraid system. I repeatedly got permission errors when mkdir tried to create the path. Every single directory was drwxrwxrwx below /mnt/ I even tried changing /mnt/ with a chmod 777. Still no joy. I uninstalled Synthing thinking I would start fresh. But then I found that uninstalling it left droppings -- /mnt/user/appdata/syncthing/ with various files and directories under it. How is that an
  15. Fantastic! I searched all through the menus and didn't see anything. It never occurred to me that it would be a plugin (I only brought up Unraid a day ago).
  16. Coming from QNAP and Thecus to Unraid, I find one important feature missing: A simple means of identifying drives by physical location in the chassis. I recommend that Unraid implement a feature where a user could help Unraid construct a graphic representation of drive location by providing the following: Horizontal or vertical drives? Number of rows? Number of columns? Then provide a means for the user to map controllers to physical disk locations (perhaps SCSI device numbers if those don't change). Examples: Vertical drive
