  1. I gave that a try but it didn't seem to work. Instead I ended up backing up the config folder, using the USB utility to create a fresh 6.8 install on the drive, then replaced the config folder. That seemed to solve the problem. Might be a ticking time bomb as the USB drive is now about 6.5 years old, but it was good enough to get it working for now. Thanks for the help.
  2. So my machine was running well and last night I saw there was a new stable build. I had to restart to change some CPU isolation configurations anyway, so figured might as well get things current. Bad move... My system will no longer boot. I don't think it's UNRAID, however. I'm getting this error during the boot sequence, which leads me to believe that it's a corrupted flash drive: Unpacking initramfs... Initramfs unpacking failed: junk in compressed archive At this point it hangs and I have to hold the reset button to power off the system. I'm running Memtest 86 right now, but seems to be fine. My question is, does this look like a flash drive problem? Also, I have a very old backup drive that's probably on version 5.xx (bought two licenses when I originally paid); would booting up this old flash drive be harmful for my system? Thanks
  3. Whoops. There once was a man on Unraid, An upgraded drive he did crave He ran a preclear without any fear and almost sent his new drive to its grave.
  4. EDIT: Don't be like me. Never preclear an SSD. So I've solved this problem and reporting back in case anyone else finds this thread for the same issue I had. First off, I fixed the drive issue by running pre-clear on the disk. I had heard that you don't need to preclear SSDs (and it tends to make them overheat), but oh well, it worked. And for the other random errors, those were from having old GUI windows open that had been left open prior to the restart of the system.
  5. I did some searching but couldn't seem to find a solution to my particular problem. Over black friday I picked up an M2 2TB ADATA SSD to replace my old 240GB SATA cache drive. I popped the NVMe drive in, moved the data off of my old cache drive, stopped the array, and tried to start it back up with the M2 drive as the cache drive, but I'm getting this error about "unsupported partition layout". Even when the array is stopped and the new drive is unassigned, there is a "FORMAT" button next to it, but the button is greyed out and doesn't do anything when I click it. I checked my log and I'm getting a weird looping error with unassigned devices plugin and the ca.backup plugin, but I'm not sure if those are related (log attached). Thanks for any help. log.txt
  6. Bumping this to see if a solution was ever found. I installed a fresh Win10 VM off the newest ISO directly from Microsoft this week and am encountering this problem. I'm running a GTX1080 card, using the hdmi audio on it, and keep getting the audio losing sync on Chrome streaming video. The weird thing is the audio is moving ahead of the video, and a refresh of the stream seems to fix it. Have all the MSI stuff enabled and double checked, along with the drivers. Thanks in advance for any help.
  7. Thanks, worked like a charm! Many headaches saved!
  8. I think the problem is probably with my Unraid network settings. I've attached a screenshot of what they look like now. I remembered when I upgraded to 6.7 it completely broke my internet connection. I added a line in the routing area to fix it, but don't remember exactly what I did. This was before VMs were ever enabled on my system.
  9. I've been following SpaceInvader's setup guide for turning my Unraid into a gaming box, but I've run into a problem... I'm trying to install Splashtop Desktop, but my client is recognizing it as a remote server. I think the issue is that the VM is on a different subnet (client computer is on 192.168.1.x, VM is on 192.168.122.x). I tried manually changing the IP address of the VM inside of Windows, but it wouldn't allow me to do so (and it wouldn't list any details as to why - perhaps because I'm connected via VNC?). I've also read that this method may lead to a headache. This is also causing a problem where my array isn't even appearing in my network devices. I can access the array via IP, but it's not showing up under the network tab. Has anyone else ran into this issue? Any insights or fixes? I know that paying for the full version of Splashtop is an option, but even still I wouldn't want to run the connection through my internet for both lag and data reasons.
  10. I've done a bit of searching and I don't think this is a currently available feature, but I apologize if it is. Anyhow... I'd love a feature where you could set a drive for permanent removal and have it automatically move all of the data from the drive and redistribute it to the array (assuming there is adequate room), and then update the parity drive accordingly without having to do a full rebuild (zeroing out the decommissioned drive in the process, for safe disposal). Ideally, when it's all finished you could power down the array, remove the designated drive, and continue on your merry day. Thanks
  11. Happy to help. A VPN'd version would be fantastic. Does Binhex take requests?
  12. Thanks. File Activity was exactly what I was looking for.
  13. So this is a really stupid question, but I saw a docker container that shows which applications are accessing drives, letting you know why certain drives are spinning up. However, like an idiot, I didn't install it or pin it, and now I can't find it again. Does this ring a bell to anyone?
  14. In case anyone finds this topic looking for the same info I was looking for, I've finally gotten SparklyBalls' Acestream template working. After installing it, I simply ignored the playlist file and instead accessed it via URL, using the path: http://(UNRAID_IP_ADDRESS):8000/pid/(ACESTREAM_STREAM_ID)/stream.mp4 Of course, replacing (UNRAID_IP_ADDRESS) with my actual unraid box ip address, and replacing (ACESTREAM_STREAM_ID) with the AceStream ID number that I wanted to view. I threw that address into VLC using the "Open Network..." menu option and it worked! Still unsure how to fiddle with setting (such as buffer length), but I'm happy that it's working.
  15. I've been trying to get AceStream working on my Unraid box for a while now. I know there is a SparklyBalls container, but it was based off a 3 year old version of the software designed to work with one Russian hosting site which required a paid subscription. I tinkered with it quite a bit, but could never get it to work for my own AceStream IDs that weren't hosted by the Russian site (which could very well be my fault). I was recently checking if there had been any updates and I'd found this more recent AceStream docker as well as this post from November for a different AceStream docker that someone was using on a Raspberry Pi. I don't have a lot of experience installing Dockers other than using the templates and I was wondering if anyone had gotten any form of AceStream to work well for them? Thanks
