  1. Was this ever sorted out? I'm having the same issue. Thanks
  2. So, I was going to be patient and wait for some responses. I went to watch a show and Kodi would play for 10 seconds and stop. I tried on my laptop and VLC couldn't play any video files. I tried to copy a file to my laptop and that failed too! So, the flash being borked was obviously a bigger deal than I thought. I telneted in and ran powerdown. I removed the flash drive and put in the laptop. It worked and I made a backup. Put flash back into ESXi server and powered up unRaid. It came up and started a parity check. So, I don't think I shut it down cleanly. Stopped the parity check and started the preclear. It's resuming from where it was. Yes! And I can watch videos again. All is great now except that I don't know why I lost the flash drive from the vm. Probably has something to do with this: From log, this keeps repeating: Jun 14 15:37:52 unRaid5 kernel: sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] 15237120 512-byte logical blocks: (7.80 GB/7.27 GiB) Jun 14 15:37:53 unRaid5 rc.diskinfo[5970]: SIGHUP received, forcing refresh of disks info.

  3. Hi there! I had been running unRaid 5.0 on ESXi 5.5 for years. A few days ago, I decided I needed to update to unRaid 6. So, I changed from booting into unRaid via vmdk to plop. I then upgraded unRaid to 6.7, installed plugins and a new drive that is in the middle of preclearing. It's all been going great until now. The web gui only displays the header. Searching around, I found this can happen if the USB drive goes bad or is missing. So, I checked the vm's settings in vSphere and sure enough the USB device is not listed. The controller is still listed, but not my unRaid Flash drive. So, what do I do now? Is there anyway to get the flash drive passed back through without shutting down unRaid? unRaid is running in memory, right? So, preclear should still be running? If I shutdown unRaid, will preclear have to start over? Is there anyway to get the status of preclear in a telnet session? Sorry, lots of questions, just not sure how to proceed... Thanks
  4. That took a while, but it's finished rebuilding and checking parity with 0 errors. Here is smart report now: SMART Attributes Data Structure revision number: 16 Vendor Specific SMART Attributes with Thresholds: ID# ATTRIBUTE_NAME FLAG VALUE WORST THRESH TYPE UPDATED WHEN_FAILED RAW_VALUE 1 Raw_Read_Error_Rate 0x002f 200 200 051 Pre-fail Always - 0 3 Spin_Up_Time 0x0027 177 169 021 Pre-fail Always - 8141 4 Start_Stop_Count 0x0032 094 094 000 Old_age Always - 6608 5 Reallocated_Sector_Ct 0x0033 200 200 140 Pre-fail Always - 0 7 Seek_Error_Rate 0x002e 200 200 000 Old_age Always - 0 9 Power_On_Hours 0x0032 070 070 000 Old_age Always - 22161 10 Spin_Retry_Count 0x0032 100 100 000 Old_age Always - 0 11 Calibration_Retry_Count 0x0032 100 253 000 Old_age Always - 0 12 Power_Cycle_Count 0x0032 100 100 000 Old_age Always - 13 192 Power-Off_Retract_Count 0x0032 200 200 000 Old_age Always - 11 193 Load_Cycle_Count 0x0032 179 179 000 Old_age Always - 64660 194 Temperature_Celsius 0x0022 126 119 000 Old_age Always - 26 196 Reallocated_Event_Count 0x0032 200 200 000 Old_age Always - 0 197 Current_Pending_Sector 0x0032 200 200 000 Old_age Always - 3 198 Offline_Uncorrectable 0x0030 100 253 000 Old_age Offline - 0 199 UDMA_CRC_Error_Count 0x0032 200 200 000 Old_age Always - 0 200 Multi_Zone_Error_Rate 0x0008 100 253 000 Old_age Offline - 0 Pending is now 3 instead of 5 and reallocated is still 0. Does that mean if it tries to read from one of those 3 sectors it will fail again? Why wouldn't it reallocate them? I checked and it's under warranty until October. Is this sufficient issue to return? If not, what do I need to watch for?
  5. Never mind, I've comprehended what I was reading a little better now. I'm doing the second option under re-enable drive. It is building parity now, should be finished by morning. Thanks again!
  6. So, I need to run a preclear? Does the array need to be shut down? Or does the parity disk need to be unassigned? Or can I just run it? Thanks. Sorry for the questions, just kind of scary when my data is in peril!
  7. It looks like my parity disk is having issues. This thing has been running unattended so long, I think I've just about forgotten what little I knew! Anyway, would like some advice before doing anything. Unraid 5.0, syslog and smart report attached. Thanks! Well it says the files are greater than 192KB and won't take them. Not sure how as the file sizes are 66KB, 32KB and 5KB. Anyway, try here: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AgqKPKE94KRrhb0rOM51uX98VY4Xgg
  8. Great! What do mean exactly by assigning the drives correctly? I'll have one (new) parity drive and the 3 old data drives. You just mean assigning the correct parity drive? Also, in the old server I just used disk shares. I think I want to try to use user shares and security. Will I have any issues setting this up with data already on the disks?
  9. Well, this was pretty easy and straight-forward. I got a cheap PCIe sound card and passed it through to a Win8 VM without much issue. PlayOn is now happy and I can even watch in HD now!
  10. Hello! I have a server with UnRaid 4.7 that I've been using for years. I've built a new server running ESXi and virtualized UnRaid 5.0 on it. It currently only has a parity drive and small data drive for testing. Once I'm ready to go to production, can I just move the 3 data drives from the 4.7 server to the 5.0 server and rebuild parity? I think I would remove the test data drive, use the new config utility to reset the config, move and assign the disks and then start the array and parity check. Any problems with this plan?
  11. So, I got my system built a few weeks ago and I finally have some time to try it out. Instead of the X9-SCM board, I built around the X10SL7. I've created a Windows Server 2008 VM. Among other things, I want to run PlayOn on it. But, it requires audio which the X10 doesn't have. Has anyone added a sound card to ESXi? Will any card work? Would a USB card be easier to passthrough than PCI? Thanks!
  12. Thanks. I guess the SASLP-MV8 was throwing me off since it's low profile and included in a lot of builds. But, I now see it includes a standard bracket, too.
  13. So, silly question, but I can't find the answer. The M1015 can be had with a standard or low profile bracket. Which one is needed for the 4220 case? I think low profile, just not sure.
  14. Thanks! I only have 3 tuners now, but if I expand I'll look into Tuner Salad. I haven't had problems with CCI, but TWC just bought my cable provider (Insight). Hopefully, nothing changes. Using MCE is working pretty well, so I don't mind keeping it. I currently record on one computer, an older, under-powered pc in the living room. Then, overnight, my office pc uses MCEBuddy to check for any recordings and converts them to mkv format. It optionally compresses, cuts commercials and extracts captions based on rules I made. This works pretty well and automagically, except it can't always figure out the correct season and episode numbers. So, after I manually correct that, I update my shared XBMC library and the shows are available throughout the house. Part of the reason for this build is to get this process into one box. I think it should work pretty well using a VM.
