  1. Hi, I issued the mover stop command and it’s been 4 hours, but it seems like mover is still running. There is no access to the server and yet the disks are still reading from cache and writing to array. Is there something else I can do to stop the mover so I can reboot the server? thank you.
  2. Hi, whenever my server is under load (for example, using FreeFileSync to mirror a large directory from Windows and deleting a large folder that is on my UnRAID server from Windows at the same time), Windows will return a device is inaccessible error after a short period of activity. Does this mean I need a faster processor or how can I troubleshoot this? My UnRAID server is an i5-3570K with 16GB of memory, LSI 9210-8i SAS card, 45 HDD's, 1 SSD and a 10G NIC. All in a Supermicro SC847 chassis. Thank you!
  3. Hi, so I went ahead and started the array without the bad disk that is in the pool and while the array started, all the drives in the pool are labeled as Unmountable: Too many missing/misplaced devices. I've also tried scrubbing the pool, and while many errors were fixed, some were uncorrectable. The pool is formatted as RAID6, so I'm wondering why a single drive failure can lead to this. Any thoughts on what I should do next to try and recover? Thanks!
  4. Hi, when I try to do these steps: stop array, remove 1 device in the pool -start array, let BTRFS work -stop array, add replacement device -start array, let btrfs work I stopped the array and deselected the faulty drive from the pool using the drop down box, when I go to start the array, it says "Start will remove the missing cache disk and then bring the array on-line." Should I check the box to okay the removal of the missing cache disk to start the array? I can't tell if the message means removing the faulty disk I just deselected (which I want to do) or removing the entire pool (which I don't want to do). Thanks!
  5. Hi, I'm curious to know what it means for the UnRAID Health Status to be green with a PASS for Array Health Report. My UnRAID box is showing green and pass and yet I am getting lots of error on my btrfs pool that are showing up in my logs: Oct 14 12:22:10 UnRAID kernel: BTRFS info (device sdp1): read error corrected: ino 0 off 34270135595008 (dev /dev/sdw1 sector 1209819416) Oct 14 12:22:10 UnRAID kernel: BTRFS error (device sdp1): parent transid verify failed on 34270140792832 wanted 125792 found 120895 Oct 14 12:22:10 UnRAID kernel: BTRFS info (device sdp1): read error corrected: ino 0 off 34270140792832 (dev /dev/sdw1 sector 1209829568) Are these "real" errors and should I be worried? Will a btrfs "scrub" help clear these up? Thanks! Hammer8
  6. Hi, is there a way to change UnRAID so it remembers the command history? Is there a risk of doing this? I assume it’s turned off by default for a reason. Thanks!
  7. Thank you very much. I will give it a try and report back. Really appreciate your help! I must say I am very grateful to the members of this forum who are so helpful in making a complex product like UnRAID much more manageable for newbies like myself.
  8. Hi, trying to follow the discussion...this looks like the suggested workaround to replace a bad drive: stop array, remove 1 device in the pool -start array, let BTRFS work -stop array, add replacement device -start array, let btrfs work I can do the above via the GUI. But the thread seems to suggest this is an Unraid GUI bug. Is there a way I can replace the bad disk with a good disk in "one" step using CLI? Thanks!
  9. Hi, one of the disks in my btrfs pool (Raid 6) is failing and I tried to replace it following the instructions in the UnRAID manual. 1) stop array, 2) unselect the bad disk and select the new disk in place of the bad disk and 3) start the array. When I do this, the pool does not mount and I get the message: Unmountable: Too many missing/misplaced drives. However, when I reinstall the “bad” drive, the pool mounts correctly. Does anyone know how I can replace the bad drive in this situation? Thank you!
  10. Hi, update: I took out the new disk and replaced it with the old disk. Now the Pool mounts properly. Should I do something else to replace the bad disk?
  11. Hi, I had one disk fail in my btrfs (RAID6) pool (a pool, not the Array) and I replaced the disk this morning by stopping the array, unselecting the failed disk and selecting the new disk. When I restarted the array, the array shows up fine, but all the disks in the pool (not Array) says Unmountable: Too many missing/misplaced drives. All the disks in the pool as a green dot next to them. Anything I can do to fix this? The only option I see on the GUI is Format will create a file system in all Unmountable disks. Thank you.
  12. Hi, running UnRAID 6.9.2 and seeing a physical disk being listed twice in Main. Once as part of a Pool (as sdt) and once as an unassigned disk (as sdav) in Unassigned. Both the Array and Pool are running fine and I'm not seeing any errors. Any ideas why it's being listed twice? Thanks!
  13. Hi, actually, what does Streams mean? I see that when I say play a video file from UnRAID, streams will say 1 on the share the video file is located, but when, say, I backup to the UnRAID server, the streams count stays 0. What triggers a stream count?
  14. Hi, I notice my Streams count next to each listed share on the dashboard always shows 0 even when I know files are being accessed. This started to happen a couple of months ago, and prior to that, the Streams count will be non-zero when I am accessing the share. Anyone else experiencing this? Thanks!
  15. Hi, found simply stopping the array and replacing the drive is all I need to do. Right now, I think the btrfs pool is rebuilding...is there somewhere that shows the progress? Thanks!
  16. Hi, I'm a very new user of UnRAID so many apologies if this has been asked before. I have an UnRAID box with 1) the main array, 2) an SSD cache, and 3) a pool formatted as BTRFS (RAID 6). One of the disks in the BTRFS pool is failing and I would like to replace it while keeping my data in the pool intact. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thank you
  17. Hi, running 6.9.2 without any Dockers running and noticing that CPU activity is at 50%+ load even when there is no network activity and all the disks are spun down. Is there a way to see what is running in the background? Thanks!
  18. Hi, I recently built a new server with a i5-3570K CPU, 16GB RAM, an Intel 10G NIC and 45 drives connected using a LSI 2008 SAS card flashed in IT mode. The drives are split between 30 for the main Array and 15 as a pool using btrfs/RAID6. The performance seems to be somewhat spotty and things seem to really slow down (5-10 MB/s) if I am trying to read from the Array from one client while writing to it from another client. All networking is via SMB. Would upgrading my CPU help or is the performance limited given the large number of drives attached? Are there any performance tweaks that can be performed? PS - There are no vm's running on the box. Thanks!
  19. I'm not sure if SMBv1 is on in my UnRAID server...I have this on my SMB extra settings box: min protocol = SMB2
  20. Thank you so much for the complete set of instructions! Highlighting the difference between accessing the UnRAID server from the Network icon from the Explorer left side panel vs. directly typing in \\SERVER in the location bar was the epiphany for me. The former does not work and the latter does. Thank you so much!! With UnRAID public and private access working, I wonder if there is a way to map the UnRAID server to Explorer either as a drive or as a Network Location. For example, if my UnRAID server is called \\SERVER, would it be possible to map that "top" path as a Network Location so that when I click on it, I see all my UnRAID shares? I can access it via the shortcut method described in the document, but having it in Explorer will be easier. Thanks! hmmm....as an update, it seems after waiting a few minutes, the left panel Network icon access now works. I can see all my UnRAID shares when I click on my UnRAID server and I can access both public and private shares. I thought this was an SMB 1.0 feature which I had turned off per the document. Guess I'm confused again....but at least it all works now!!
  21. Hi, very new to UnRAID and I am experiencing the issue described above. Not realizing, I used Krusader to move a bunch of files and it moved instantaneously, but did not really move the files from my Pool to my Array. My Array is my UnRAID Array and My Pool is a separate set of disks formatted btrfs. What I see now is space still being occupied in the Pool. Since the files have been “moved”, how can I tell what still physically resides on the Pool so I can physically move them to the Array? Thank you!
  22. Hi, any thoughts on above? Just want to know if this is a design feature or if my file systems is corrupted. Thank you!
  23. Hmmm…I think something is really wrong…I just tried using Krusader to move the files and while the move “finished” without error, I don’t see the files on the UnRAID Array, but they are gone from the UnRAID Pool! However, the space on the Pool occupied by the files is also not freed. Does that mean the files are still there on the disk but not listed in the directory? Maybe I don’t understand how Krusader works. Upon further testing, it seems like when I move a file using Windows, the file physically is moved from the Pool disks to the Array disks. However, when I move a file using Krusader, it looks like only the pointer to the file is moved. Is that by design? My shares are as follows: UnraidX - this is the main array PoolX - this is the Pool And the files I am moving are going from PoolX\Landing to UnraidX\Landing I had expected Krusader to physically move the files, but the process finished almost instantaneously, and so I am thinking it only moved the pointer. is there a way to physically move the files? Right now, it appears my Pool is an “extension” of the main UnRAID Array. Note, the Pool is not designated as a cache for the Array.
  24. Hi, I’m using Windows explorer to move the files and in total, it’s probably 30-40GB of data. I’m trying again after a reboot of my UnRAID server and I’m finding I can’t even move a single folder that contains only 1 file of size 3GB. It looks like it progresses, but in the end, it fails with an “unexpected” server error code 0x8007003A. The specified server cannot complete the requested operation. My only option is to either skip or cancel the operation. I googled that error code and what I found was that it is related to running out of disk space, but I don’t believe that’s my issue since all the disks in the array have more than the 3GB of space needed to hold this file. Additionally, I also tried copying the file (that resides on the UnRAID pool) to the Windows machine and that also fails with the same error code. Trying to move the file results in the same error. However, I am able to open the file from the UnRAID pool location and so it seems like the file is there and it’s not corrupted. So strange! I did try Krusader a while back, but found that it was not much faster since the server and my Windows machine is connected using 10G NIC’s and so Windows was easier for me. BTW, I’m totally new to UnRAID and appreciate everyone’s help on this forum.
  25. Hi, I'm moving a bunch of folders from an UnRAID pool to array in Windows and noticing that the source folders are not being deleted as they are moved. Seems if I move them a few at a time, it works fine (and the source folder is deleted), but when I move say 150 at a time, the move gets very slow and fails. Any ideas?
