  1. I'm running 6.2.4 and I've got 1 parity drive and 5 disk drives in the array. One of the disks has been reporting read errors. The new drive I purchased I want to use as the parity drive and shift the parity drive to replace the bad disk. I've moved all files off the bad disk to other disks since I had room. What's the best way to proceed on this? I was thinking of doing the following: Stop and Power down the array. Remove parity drive. Add new drive. Power on array and set new drive as parity disk. Rebuild parity. Stop and Power down the array. Remove bad drive. Add previous parity drive. Power on array and set previous parity drive to disk # vacated by the bad drive. But since parity will rebuild and there is nothing currently on the bad disk anyway, can I simply combine it and do the following instead: Stop and Power down the array. Remove bad drive. Add new drive. Power on array and set existing parity as disk # vacated by bad drive and set new drive to parity. Rebuild parity.
  2. I have a Sempron 140 and upgraded from v5 to v6 and have not seen any slow down in parity checks.
  3. That did it. No php errors anymore and I can save the layout properly. Thanks for the help.
  4. Please post output of "ls -las /dev/disk/by-id". I think that because you are using a U3 USB stick it is showing up as both a USB device and a CD/DVD ROM device with the same serial number. total 0 0 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 580 Sep 21 16:24 ./ 0 drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 140 Sep 21 16:24 ../ 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Sep 21 16:24 ata-WDC_WD15EADS-00P8B0_WD-WMAVU0001560 -> ../../sdc 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Sep 21 16:24 ata-WDC_WD15EADS-00P8B0_WD-WMAVU0001560-part1 -> ../../sdc1 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Sep 21 16:24 ata-WDC_WD15EADS-00S2B0_WD-WCAVY1422375 -> ../../sdd 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Sep 21 16:24 ata-WDC_WD15EADS-00S2B0_WD-WCAVY1422375-part1 -> ../../sdd1 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Sep 21 16:24 ata-WDC_WD20EARS-00MVWB0_WD-WCAZA5935469 -> ../../sde 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Sep 21 16:24 ata-WDC_WD20EARS-00MVWB0_WD-WCAZA5935469-part1 -> ../../sde1 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Sep 21 16:24 ata-WDC_WD20EARS-00MVWB0_WD-WMAZA0194825 -> ../../sdb 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Sep 21 16:24 ata-WDC_WD20EARS-00MVWB0_WD-WMAZA0194825-part1 -> ../../sdb1 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Sep 21 16:24 ata-WDC_WD20EARS-00MVWB0_WD-WMAZA0803880 -> ../../sda 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Sep 21 16:24 ata-WDC_WD20EARS-00MVWB0_WD-WMAZA0803880-part1 -> ../../sda1 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Sep 21 16:24 ata-WDC_WD40EFRX-68WT0N0_WD-WCC4E1EFAEP0 -> ../../sdf 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Sep 21 16:24 ata-WDC_WD40EFRX-68WT0N0_WD-WCC4E1EFAEP0-part1 -> ../../sdf1 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Sep 21 16:24 usb-SanDisk_U3_Cruzer_Micro_000018711572C38B-0:0 -> ../../sdg 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Sep 21 16:24 usb-SanDisk_U3_Cruzer_Micro_000018711572C38B-0:0-part1 -> ../../sdg1 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Sep 21 16:24 usb-SanDisk_U3_Cruzer_Micro_000018711572C38B-0:1 -> ../../sr0 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Sep 21 16:24 wwn-0x50014ee0016e5c7d -> ../../sdc 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Sep 21 16:24 wwn-0x50014ee0016e5c7d-part1 -> ../../sdc1 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Sep 21 16:24 wwn-0x50014ee203b4f769 -> ../../sdd 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Sep 21 16:24 wwn-0x50014ee203b4f769-part1 -> ../../sdd1 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Sep 21 16:24 wwn-0x50014ee205b0e206 -> ../../sde 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Sep 21 16:24 wwn-0x50014ee205b0e206-part1 -> ../../sde1 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Sep 21 16:24 wwn-0x50014ee20c3dc367 -> ../../sdf 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Sep 21 16:24 wwn-0x50014ee20c3dc367-part1 -> ../../sdf1 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Sep 21 16:24 wwn-0x50014ee6006c3ced -> ../../sda 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Sep 21 16:24 wwn-0x50014ee6006c3ced-part1 -> ../../sda1 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Sep 21 16:24 wwn-0x50014ee6aae38270 -> ../../sdb 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Sep 21 16:24 wwn-0x50014ee6aae38270-part1 -> ../../sdb1
  5. Yeah I don't know why it shows up like that in the server layout, but everywhere else it's fine. serverlayout.json.txt
  6. I'm using the latest plugin version: 2015.06.15
  7. I installed the plugin and tried to use it but it doesn't seem to save the information. There is also a bunch of php errors when the plugin first loads up the layout page: I am using Unraid 6.1.2 and Firefox 40.0.3.
  8. Interesting....guess I'll plan my build to include hardware for the WMC VM, but it's clear that it'll take a bit of effort to get it to work right. Thanks for the link, I've saved off the file in case their site ever goes bye bye.
  9. Well that's disappointing. Looks like I'll have to scrap my WMC VM, which will adjust the parts list I'm compiling for the server upgrade.
  10. Hmm, yeah perhaps the 1246 would be better, that way I can test out various setups without having to pick up a discrete graphics card until I'm ready or when it's finally necessary. The $35 bump in price is reasonable. So question, what are the tradeoffs with going with a server motherboard like the one I'm thinking of picking up and say one of the new Skylake Z170 desktop boards? I know the server boards support ECC RAM but only have 16 pcie lanes, while the z170 boards don't support ECC but have more pcie lanes (up to 36? if I'm reading correctly), which would allow for multiple SAS controller cards and discrete graphics. Is there anything else I'm missing? Is ECC just that much more important in this type of setup?
  11. Oh right, been looking at too many motherboard specs. Definitely would need a video card then.
  12. I've been using Unraid for about 6 years now and love it. I recently upgraded from v5 to v6 and the possibility of using docker containers has really opened up my thoughts on how to better utilize the system. It's been simply hosting music/movies/tv, but now I'm looking to run plex or emby from it and also using it as storage for system backups of my other computers and possibly host some VMs in the future. The current hardware is too old to do anything useful and with a drive also starting to fail, now seemed like a good time to upgrade the hardware and take this thing to the next level. So here's the current state: OS: v6.1 CPU: AMD Sempron 140 Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-MA74GM-S2 RAM: 2GB DDR2 800 Case: Cooler Master Centurion 590 Drive Cage(s): 3x Cooler Master 4-in-3 Power Supply: Corsair CMPSU-550VX Parity Drive: 2TB WD20EARS Data Drives: 3x 1.5TB WD15EADS (1 starting to die), 2x 2TB WD20EARS Cache Drive: None Total Drive Capacity: 8.5TB My plans, in addition to continuing to host music/movies/tv episodes, are to run a Plex or Emby container to manage all those media files, store system backups of my htpcs, and possibly (if this would be doable) run a win7 vm and drop my tuner card into it to act as the main live tv recording system so that my htpcs just essentially become clients to the unraid server. This last idea is mostly a nice to have and not necessarily a key driver of the build. I'm currently looking at the following upgrades: CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1231V3 Motherboard: ASRock Rack C226 WS Micro RAM: 16GB Crucial DDR31600 ECC Unbuffered I plan on picking up a 4TB WD Red to use as the new parity drive and use the existing parity drive to replace the failing drive. As far as add-in cards, I plan to get some sort of SAS card at some point to expand my currently paltry storage...and if the Win7 VM is doable I'll need to put my Ceton Infinitv4 tuner card in and probably a video card. SAS card would likely be PCIE x8, the tuner is x1. and so a video card would likely have to be at most x8 unless onboard graphics can support it. Anyway, it's really hard trying to figure all the different details out, so many things to consider. So I'm posting this to get some outside opinions and see if people agree I'm on the right track here.
  13. Been running the s3 script for several days and these new changes look great. What would make this perfect for me was if, as its final check, it pinged a list of IPs and if it couldn't reach any of them, then it would go to sleep. I don't know enough to do it myself and am looking for a bit of help on this. I believe someone else mentioned this earlier in the thread, but I don't think it got fleshed out far enough.
