  1. This is a wonderful post, written with insight, sensitivity and purpose. Thank you for taking the time to write it. I read it a few times, I hope others do the same.
  2. This post represents my own personal musings and opinion. This thread (and the broader situation) interests me on a number of levels. We (Royal we) bang on (quite rightly) about our community and how supportive, inclusive, helpful and respectful it is. Values really that any organisation in the world would be lucky for its members to behave consistent with. Saying that, this situation has shown that there is an undercurrent of what I can only call bitterness and to some extent entitlement in some community members. I don’t feel that this is across the board by any means. However, for some, there seems to be a propensity to believe the worst of every (almost like we are waiting to jump on any poorly, Ill-considered or rushed post) word posted by default rather than the positive - which given how together we are supposed to be is very surprising. There could be any number of reasons for this, whether it be the whole keyboard warrior thing, immaturity, mixture of ages of people talking to each other I just don’t know. I think we also have to acknowledge that we are all living in unprecedented times. We are very geographically spread and some are copping it harder than others for sure but we are all in a very in normal place. I have also observed that some (whether that be due to their contribution to this forum or their development work etc.) individuals appear to think that they should be subject to a treatment different to others. I always felt that when doing something in the open source / community space the only reasonable expectation was that there was appreciation from the community for that work and that was enough. It’s volunteer work that plays second fiddle to real life (a fact that many are rightly quick to throw out when the demands of the community get to high). Irrespective of how much those developments have added value to the core product I don’t think those expectations could or should change. Saying that, the community includes the company too and those expectations of appreciation for work done (especially where commercial gain is attained from that work) carries to them too. The thing that surprised me the most though (and again this could be due to the reasons above - or others) is how quick some have been to react negatively (or even just walk) but how slow some have been to react in a more positive way. Perhaps that’s human nature. As I write this I am drawing to a conclusion that we as a community perhaps need to manage our own expectations of what is reasonably expected as a community, developer or company member. This might help (or it might not) help situations like this moving forward.
  3. Unhelpful, inflammatory, provoking and downright unnecessary. Also, if I was to define the set of values that makes this community group so strong I would say there isn’t a word in your post that would align with them.
  4. Acting uncharacteristically extreme sometimes when we get hurt is very human and understandable and my personal opinion is that is what a few of the fellas at @linuxserver.iodid after the exchanges on the previous thread. I have no reason to doubt the sincerity of this post by @limetech and therefore was hoping there would be some return comms from @linuxserver.io to do their part in repairing this bridge. It might be nice if those who “retired” or decided they were now “out” or were “quitting unRAID work” came back. It might also be nice that if some of the support threads that were locked are now unlocked, some links reinstated where appropriate, edited posts that now read “Depreciated” are replaced with more helpful information and we can start a joint and peaceful transition to the new official unRAID build with appropriate guidance for the community members that might have missed the recent exchanges. Personally, at very least I’d like to see an acknowledgment of this post from the team if they are just not quite ready to move on yet - which is also understandable - wounds don’t often heal overnight. Paraphrasing @aptalca, no one likes a one way street. If virtual hands could be shaken here ... in an ideal world (for me) publicly then the symbiotic unRAID centric relationship between a big community contributor and the company can continue and we all move on together! 🙂
  5. As much as I felt I had to post on the beta release thread I felt the need again to post here for this very nice and sincere post. “An apology is the super glue of life. It can repair just about anything.” - Lynn Johnston A great point and note on which to pivot and move on. I appreciate you for making this post Tom @limetech.
  6. Following @CHBMB’s request to have the support thread locked (and that request being actioned) along with his comment that all development and support for it has now ceased following @limetech announcement it wouldn’t surprise me if that App has been removed from CA altogether. CA is also a community app and the developer AFAIK still has a close relationship with the @linuxserver.io team. It appears therefore that to use Nvidia drivers with any future release of unRAID you must use the stock build (which now has them in of course). How to configure your dockers to use those stock builds is another thing and something I haven’t researched yet.
  7. I’ve been around a little while. I always follow the boards even though I have very little life time to give to being active in the community anymore. I felt the need to post to say I can completely appreciate how the guys at @linuxserver.io feel. I was lucky enough to be apart of the team @linuxserver.iofor a short while and I can personally attest to how much personal time and effort they put into development, stress testing and supporting their developments. While @limetech has developed a great base product i think it’s right to acknowledge that much of the popularity and success of the product is down as much to community development and support (which is head and shoulders above by comparison) as it is to the work of the company. As a now outsider looking in, my personal observation is that the use of unRAID exploded due to the availability of stable, regularly updated media apps like Plex (the officially supported one was just left to rot) and then exploded again with the emergence of the @linuxserver.ionVidia build and the support that came with it. Given the efforts of the community and groups like @linuxserver.io is even used in unRAID marketing I feel this is a show of poor form. I feel frustrated at Tom’s “I didn’t know I needed permission ....” comment as it isn’t about that. It’s about respect and communication. A quick “call” to the @linuxserver.io team to let them know of the plan (yes I know the official team don’t like sharing plans at risk of setting expectations they then won’t meet) to (even privately) acknowledge the work that has (and continues to) contribute to the success of unRAID and let them be a part of it would have cost Nothing but would have been worth so much. I know the guys would have been supporting too. I hope the two teams can work it out and that @limetech don’t forget what (and who) helped them get to where they are and perhaps looks at other companies who have alienated their community through poor decisions and communication. Don’t make this the start of a slippery slide.
  8. My understanding is that IDRAC ports are similar to SuperMicro (and others) dedicated ports for server management (ie you cannot use them on your server as an available interface for your OS - in this case unRAID). You “could” (I think) go down the route (if you have a managed switch) of using your spare RJ45 port as the port for PfSense (available to the VM as a bridge) and use VLANS for LAN and WAN. I won’t elaborate on that. I think the best bet though is to use your Intel SFP+ card. I’m making assumptions that you’re not going 10G here and you just want to use your SFP+ ports as additional RJ45 ports for pfSense. A quick search found this link appearing to relate to someone wanting similar SFP+ to RJ45 modules for your Intel card: https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/intel-82599es-transceiver-compatability-sfp-to-rj45-1g.25729/ If you can get ones that work, then I imagine you can just pass that card through to the VM (assuming you server supports it) and use them for LAN/ WAN respectively. Then off you go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I’d love the ability to assign multiple networks to a single Docker container. The simplest use case involves pihole. Currently I run seperate instances of a pihole container for each of my VLANS. It would be great if I could just attach one container to each network and configure pihole to listen on all assigned interfaces. I’m pretty sure you can do it via the cli using ‘docker network connect <network> <container>‘ or something but it would be excellent to be able to do it in the GUI.
  10. Watching the thread via email updates and had to chime in. I like this one, good job!!
  11. I currently have all my networks restricted to using pihole which is set to use unbound (locally hosted in pfsense) to resolve dns queries (where the request isn’t cached). I do not use any external dns service. What benefit would introducing this software into my setup give me?
  12. As someone who uses VLANS in my setup I’d love the ability to choose which interface the management access features of unRAID (e.g. GUI / SSH etc is bound to). Select either / All etc. I’d like to have unRAID deployed to my management VLAN along with my other network gear and my main VLAN where all my file access occurs. I can do this of course but I’d like to be able to prevent clients on the main VLAN from accessing the GUI and SSH etc (not possible of course via FW rules as the traffic on that VLAN doesn’t go back to the router to trigger a block rule) and just have file sharing enabled. Right now I can deploy unRAID to X VLANS and on each IP (required to be assigned for file sharing) the GUI / SSH is accessible.
  13. Best way to answer a question you have is to sometimes write it down. This has worked in my case in that I re-read what I wrote and thought - that sounds strange. RTFM!! So I went and read the Docker documentation. In 2 mins I found what I needed. https://docs.docker.com/config/containers/container-networking/ Key part being: This makes it (sort of) clear why the option doesn't exist in unRAID. Either way, I was able to add --dns X.X.X.X to the docker run command via the advanced mode in the container setup page and low and behold, external DNS was set in the container.
  14. Hello, The unRAID interface does not allow for specifying DNS settings. One would assume this is by design (or by restriction) as this seems something quite obvious to omit. I have set my secondary NIC up against a port on my switch which is assigned to a VLAN which pfsense routes through my VPN gateway. I have the interface to grab an IP from my VLAN DHCP server (which it does) but Id like to just set the VPN DNS Server directly rather than the way I have unraid setup (unraid>Pihole>pfsense(unbound)). I have bridging enabled on that interface, which I then use to assign an IP to a docker container. This works great, and traffic is routed as I expect through my VPN via the VLAN. That is until I need name resolution. My question is, how do I achieve what I want (which is being able to set a set of different DNS servers for the secondary interface) assuming that, as I say above, this is by design or restriction? I am creating a new topic as there have been a number of similar topics created in the past but have had no answers. I cannot find a topic through the forum search that answers this question. Any info on this would be helpful. Thanks Daniel
