  1. Thank goodness it was just a typo in the file name (PEBCAK error). Addressed and working!
  2. Hi All After the fiasco last week where I had problems after an upgrade of the Unraid OS my smart self decided to roll forward to 6.10.2 as I was having no issues wit 6.10.0... The update worked perfectly fine and the server boots, however it cannot see the NIC's attached to my server, where as the previous release did. I have literally changed no other settings on the server and I can boot into it fine using GUI mode (all disks etc. are there and the array starts fine). I am just missing my NICs - is there a simple way to get the server to rediscover them with no network connection, the error I am seeing is along the lines of: Cannot find "eth0" Again, any help here would be appreciated
  3. Thanks all - just closing the loop here. I managed to configure the appropriate settings for virtualization as suggested by @Squid along with creating a new flash drive with the latest stable version of Unraid. In addition to that I did a manual sync of all configuration and shares to the new flash drive from the backup I had. I made use of the vars diagnostics file to ensure that I mapped the correct drives when assigning drives and took a leap of faith when it came to starting the array based on @trurl which seemed to work. My Docker images and shares are all back along with the array rebuilding. Thank you everyone who helped, awesome community!
  4. I have managed to resolve the correct disks to slots on the array, however I wont start it as I am getting the warning that the disks will be overridden. I cannot for the life of me find the correct guide for migrating servers
  5. After a couple of hours of fighting with it I just reinstalled Unraid 6.10.1 to a new USB and rebooted the server, migrated my key and am now trying to figure out how to import my disks again, at the moment I am stuck looking at the following screen I did make a backup of the original drive before the reinstall, but I don't know how to import my disks correctly without messing things up. Any suggestions?
  6. Woot - finally got the drive to mount
  7. Yes it was, however I do not have any means of uploading it, I have shut down the server, removed the flash drive and plugged it into this PC. There is a drive mounted in Windows when I do that, however it won't allow access to it without me formatting it - I have checked on diskpart \ manager and the only volume exposed is the uncountable one. Do I need to do something special to be able to browse the /boot directory locally?
  8. I did manage to pull down a previous backup of my flash drive through "My Servers" and this was the expected NIC configuration if that helps at all. # Generated settings: IFNAME[0]="br0" BONDNAME[0]="bond0" BONDING_MIIMON[0]="100" BRNAME[0]="br0" BRSTP[0]="no" BRFD[0]="0" BONDING_MODE[0]="1" BONDNICS[0]="eth0 eth1 eth2 eth3" BRNICS[0]="bond0" PROTOCOL[0]="ipv4" USE_DHCP[0]="no" IPADDR[0]="" NETMASK[0]="" GATEWAY[0]="" DNS_SERVER1="" DNS_SERVER2="" USE_DHCP6[0]="yes" DHCP6_KEEPRESOLV="no" SYSNICS="1"
  9. Here you go - the restore did not work at all. There was some output to the terminal while running the diagnostics that did not look ideal. I am unable to mount my flash drive on my desktop - suggestions?
  10. I will give this a try in about 10 min - I have just restored the previous Unraid version on the server to see if the network comes back online, should that not work I will run a quick "diagnostics" on it and post the response
  11. After some messing about I was able to launch the UI - just took forever to respond. I can confirm that my NIC has not been picked up at all
  12. Hi All I just updated unraid to the latest RC and rebooted my server, it has not come back up at all. After a while I connected a monitor to it, and logged into the GUI mode to try an troubleshoot it. I am unable to open the UI while physically sitting in front of the server and am unable to browse the network \ internet at all - so I am leaning towards it being a NIC or network issue. The symptoms I got were: - Unraid taking forever to initialize SAMBA - NIC lights flashing with no connection - No UI started when logged into the server - No network access of any kind - Server not responding to ping I have tried using the other network points on the server and rebooting to the same issue (there are 4 of them that are usually bonded together). Any help here would be amazing, as I am a bit concerned about my data
  13. You are a legend, it has done the trick, I am in the process of rebuilding the parity now!
  14. Thanks for the quick response, and will do. I gathered I would need to wait for the rebuild first
  15. Hi all, as the title states I recently did a LOT of changes to my Unraid server, namely: Added a new 6TB "Parity 2" disk to my array Upgraded my main "Parity" drive from 4TB -> 6TB (to match) Replaced a suspect 4TB WD disk with my old "Parity" drive My current configuration looks like this: For the life of me I am unable to figure out the "magic sauce" needed to get everything back to happy here - the issue only started once I placed the old Parity disk back into the array to replace the WD drive - maybe there is something there that Unraid is unhappy with. I stumbled upon this post "" which had something similar and am preemptively uploading some additional information exported for the NAS. Hopefully I have missed something simple, or it is as simple as Unraid not being happy that the old parity drive has been inserted back into the NAS... I am in no rush right now as I have about 6 hours for the RAID to rebuild before I am comfortable messing about with things: Any help here would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
