  1. Thanks! But, I had to get it ordered to get here quickly. I went with a Seagate IronWolf 8TB. A little better price and delivery time. It's 7200 rpm, so maybe that will give a little better performance. Probably not noticeable, though. Anyway, hopefully it lasts awhile. Rebuilding parity now. After about 15 minutes, running at 122MB/s with a estimate of 18hrs to finish.
  2. No luck with the cable. When I booted I could hear one of the drives grinding and stopping. Unplugged it and that noise went away. Seems like a truly dead drive. Except for one, my other drives are also WD Red ERFX. I see those in a lot of setups. Should I still trust them and get another one or is there a consensus on a better drive for unRaid?
  3. After reboot, parity is unassigned and the drive formerly know as parity is not visible. I'm going to shut it down and switch out the sata cable, maybe I get lucky. I checked warranty status and, of course, it is out of warranty (since 8/2019). unraid5-diagnostics-20210105-1422.zip
  4. Well, this just happened. I did parity check a couple of days ago with no errors. System is still running, but no parity is obvs not good. What should be my first step? Reboot and hope it works until I can get a replacement disk? Thanks Partial log file when it happened. Full diagnostics attached. unraid5-diagnostics-20210105-1319.zip
  5. Back in April I started getting emails from this plugin. hugenbdd replied with a fix that worked. Here's a link to my post, followed by his replies. Well, the emails are back. They're address to root with a bcc to my gmail address. The subject line (cron for user root /usr/local/sbin/mover force 2>/dev/null) is the same, but the content is a little different: It's been doing this for awhile. I'm a little surprised no one else has posted about it. I must have something setup different than others. Any ideas?
  6. I'm having issues, too. Recordings from HDHomerun (*.ts files) give a playback error (No compatible streams available). Emby is set to use quicksync, but in Settings, Transcoding, switching to Advanced doesn't show any hardware encoders/decoders available. I rolled back to linuxserver/emby:, as suggested above. Hardware shows back up and recordings play again.
  7. Ok, thanks! So is there a way to tell if Sonarr is going through the vpn or not?
  8. I've been struggling with this too. I downloaded the strong files and dropped them in (Toronto). Before editing the opvn file, I restarted just to test and it worked! My problem now is that Sonarr isn't going through the proxy. I tested this by opening the console and typing curl ifconfig.io and get my IP from my ISP. Doing the same with SAB's docker I get an IP in Toronto. If I change my browser to use the proxy it works. Any idea why? Thanks
  9. Well, I guess running it for the past 20 hours was a bit of a waste of energy! One other thing I forgot to ask about...When I plug a network cable into the IPMI LAN socket, nothing happens. The activity lights don't light up and it doesn't get an IP address. If I plug into one of the other LANs, it works and IMPI works. I looked through the BIOS, but didn't find a setting I thought would help. Did I miss something? Or is that port maybe not working? Thanks!
  10. I've finally have this setup in a test server. I've flashed the BIOS to L2.21A that was provided a couple of pages back. Only BIOS setting I changed was to Onboard graphics. Is there anything else that needs changing? Did anyone run memtest86+? Since it's ECC, do I need to change any settings for it to be effective? I guess I'm wondering how ECC plays into this test.
  11. Thanks, Hoop and wreck (BTW, I'm a BSIE '92, Go Jackets!). The iGPU is important, so the SM bundle is out. I do use Emby and it currently has access to the 1 GPU in the system. I definitely want a GPU for Emby and another for VMs, so an iGPU is important and probably the easiest way to go.
  12. So, I think it's time to upgrade my 7-year old server. Currently running an E3-1230v3 on a Supermicro X10SL7-F with 16GB of ECC memory. I was late to upgrading to v6, but, boy! has it increased my usage of the server. That increased usage, though is exposing the limitation of my cores and memory. Unfortunately, I don't think I can upgrade the processor to anything with more cores, just more MHz. So, this bundles looks pretty good. Two questions: 1. I want to add a gaming VM, would this be a good start to that? I'd think so, but is there anything I'm missing in differences between Xeon and desktop cpus? 2. There are now bundles with Supermicro X11SCL-F motherboards. I haven't seen much talk of that one. Of previous buyers, would you still go with the Asus if this had been available (or maybe it was)? I think SM board only has 6 SATA ports compared to 8 on Asus. Any other major differences? Thanks!
  13. Sorry for delay, but I just did this. I'm not super linux-fluent, but I think I did it right. I updated cron job to run now. I think it did, as my used space on the cache went down. I didn't get an email. I also see there is an update available. I assume this includes the changes in the this file and I can update like normal? Thanks
  14. Hello, I've been running this since it came out, but the last couple of days, I'm getting an email about the cron job. Not sure why. Any idea?

  15. I'm installing and using this for the first time and have a question. You've talked about a breaking change to the file structure. Since I have no existing backups is there a way use this new structure from the start? Or is it not implemented yet? Also, I want to use compression, so is Zstandard the recommended setting? Thanks!
  16. Was this ever sorted out? I'm having the same issue. Thanks
  17. 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.

  18. 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
  19. 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?
  20. 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!
  21. 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!
  22. 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
  23. 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?
  24. 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!
  25. 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?
