  1. Hello, this is very helpful! Are you able to provide any recommendations on editing the acpi_handler file on each boot? Is it just a script that runs on startup to modify that line of code? Or replace the entire acpi_handler file each time? Any example of how this can/should be done? I tried googling but am not coming up with anything that's helpful for someone without a ton of experience.
  2. Just installed this and it works great, thank you! A bit of feedback: It's not very intuitive on how to trigger the WOL once you save a new item. Also, the defaults values of adding a new item are confusing and it's not clear they are editable fields as clicking them does nothing initially. Defaulting to one of the fields (Mac ideally) in edit mode when clicking "new" would make that more obvious. Also I'm not fully sure why you ask for the IP address along with mac address. If it has an IP address, doesn't that mean it's already awake or maybe there is more functionality I don't understand about WOL to an awake device.
  3. I just recently setup a system on the 3970x with 3 VMs (2 with pass-through graphics) and to be honest although I spent a couple days troubleshooting and figuring out how to pass things through, it's actually pretty easy to do and would only take me a couple hours if I had to start from scratch. I knew very little about VMs prior which also caused research to take me some time. unRAID 6.9 fixed one specific issue I was having and I wouldn't recommend trying without that although in many setups it likely would work but just with more manual tweaking. The biggest issue you'll have with 3 VMs is PCIe slots and their spacing with the motherboards but PCIe extender cables would easily solve that and I can't think of any other issues you might have. I used the Gigabyte TRX40 Aorus Master and would recommend it. Easy to pass at least 2 different sets of USBs to VMS, easy to pass both separate on-board audio outputs. Easy to pass graphics. Easy to pass NVME ports.
  4. Thanks for the tips and info, this guide has been very helpful. Are there any updates with the newer unRAID and the possible use with Infiniband? I know the card still doesn't show in network settings until set to Ethernet mode. I'd really like to try the 40GbE out instead of 10GbE. For anyone who doesn't have easy access to a Windows machine for the easy updates/configuration changes, you can pass the card through to a VM and do it from there without using a separate computer. You won't see it back in unRAID network settings until you "unstub" the card though, removing it from the VM. I also rebooted my entire unRAID server rather than just the VM when Windows said that was needed for the card changes to take effect.
  5. Hello! I'm having some issues getting this working. I've got all dockers installed and running, but it doesn't appear that the telegraf database is being created when I start telegraf because Grafana isn't finding it. My ports for influxDB are 8083 and 8086, which I've left at defaults and I've tried pointing Telegraf.conf at both of those and Grafana at both of those. Any ideas? Here is a telegraf.conf:
  6. Yes, but I'm not 100% sure I need them. I have a large Movie share which goes across 2-3 disks. When browsing movies, I hate to have to wait for another drive to spin up when testing out different movies so I put them all on the same spin-up group. If unRAID would do that automatically for shares based on "included" disks, that would remove the need for me to do this.
  7. Hmmm interesting. That's a big jump in usage for metadata. Do you know what additional functionality that brings? I see earlier in this thread that was thought to be a clear error.
  8. I've got 3 empty 8TB drives. 1 shows 8GB used as expected for the XFS filesystem. 2 others show 55.8GB used. I've checked via all methods I know of. SMB, Krusader, Linux command line, unbalanced tool. These disks are all empty but 2 are using an extra 47GB or so for the filesystem exactly as mentioned here in this thread. I did format some of these recently in RC 6.9 but I'm not sure exactly which ones. Any ideas on how I can free up this space?
  9. As I mentioned here I copied these over and to DockerMan on the flash drive and then finally when I went to "previous apps" in CA they were there to reinstall and had both their settings and actual data. So this is solved. I still can't figure out why backup/restore doesn't see any backups though.
  10. Hello! Just a quick small bug report: It appears that all unassigned devices share the same purchase date/warranty period. When I change one it effects all other unassigned devices under device identity properties.
  11. Haha why am I not surprised! I appreciate all of your valuable work for the community! Is there any other reason why it would be bad to rename from the default "cache" name? I considered not doing out of caution but it made sense now that I had a 2nd cache pool.
  12. Amazing tool, thank you so much! I have a slightly irregular situation. I changed flash drives when building a new unRAID system. I wanted to start from scratch and have all of my data moved over but I did want to keep my older docker setup. I was trying to use this app though and it doesn't recognize any backups even if I point to the folder where the backup was just taken. I already have all of my appdata folder on the new system and the docker image since I moved the old cache drive over, but the dockers don't show because they are not configured on the flash drive. Does anyone know which files I need to get from my backup to move over to the new flash drive from the old one? these files?: \flash\config\plugins\dockerMan\templates-user or is it something more substantial? I'd prefer not to manually reinstall these dockers and have to reconfigure them if possible.
  13. Bug report: If you have any shares assigned to Cache only but you have renamed your default "Cache" pool, fixcommonproblems will trigger the following error. It happens regardless of which cache pool you have that share assigned to and seems to only be checking for "Cache" instead of the applicable cache pool which is assigned. "Share VMsOnCache set to use cache only, but the cache drive is not present"
  14. I'm not a complete expert in setting up new systems since I've had mine going for around 8 years now, but that sounds like a reasonable way to get everything into the array and on parity. If you were willing to risk more time of no parity (assuming you had none before), you could essentially skip the parity until everything is on the array, then add the parity drive and run the parity calculation. That would expedite the process since the parity calculation while you're copying the files would slow things down a bit. Remember you can also do 2 parity drives for more risk management. Also look into the cache drive feature (but only once your system is fully copied over and running) as it will speed a new write to the array and also provide a good area to run some of the other useful features of unRAID such as dockers and even that VM if you're not going to do a dedicated drive.
  15. Thanks! This is very interesting. I'll do the same "blocking out". Sadly I'm kinda stuck with these 2 Starship USB controllers that won't pass. I will go ahead and try the RC version of unRAID though as that sounds interesting for the FLR issues. I realize a USB card might work, but I really want to save my PCI-E slots for graphics. Well that was easy. I went to the Beta unRAID 6.9 and the USB controller passed without any issues so easily. Wow! and thanks again! Now time to add another graphic card and for VM #2
