  1. Ah - I see. OK - I have now updated to 6.8.2 Thank you Frank1940 for your help and advice. I hope my LibreOffice goes away as well - time will tell!
  2. I was only taking the small step because it was the easy way via the plugin. I sure don't want to attempt any upgrade until I understand what went wrong or what problems my system may have.
  3. I have been happily running v6.3.2 for a long time but had 2 issues with my server locking up while using LibreOffice to open a spreadsheet on the RAID. I figured it would be best to upgrade the O/S before I started anything else so I went to the Plugins page and it showed me running at 6.3.2 with an upgrade to 6.5.3 The first thing I did was backup the flash to a local folder on my PC (good thing). The upgrade appeared to complete fine and I rebooted and accessed via the GUI. I tried to start the array and the system hung. I could no longer access the GUI and got the dreaded "unraid 500 internal server error". I rebooted with the same results. I fell back to 6.3.2 and everything is back and fine. 1. Why can't I upgrade? 2. Why did the server lock up when trying to access a .xls file via libreoffice? I did take a diagnostic file before I tried to upgrade and it is attached. I also attached my hardware profile Plugins: CA Auto Update Applications 2016.12.18 CA Backup / Restore Appdata 2017.02.21 CA Cleanup Appdata 2017.01.28 Community Applications 2017.02.25 Dynamix webGui 2017.02.16 ssh Plugin 2016.02.25.2 User Scripts 2017.06.02 Thanks in advance for any advice.

  4. I am no expert (just a novice at this) but here is what I added to my go files Tower1 # Tower1 # umask for root .ssh setup with known hosts and authorized keys umask 077 # Copy the files and set the permission cp /boot/config/ssh/ /root/.ssh/ cp /boot/config/ssh/authorized_keys /root/.ssh/ cp /boot/config/ssh/known_hosts /root/.ssh/ chmod 700 /root/.ssh/ #!/bin/bash # Start the Management Utility /usr/local/sbin/emhttp & Tower2 # Tower2 # umask for root .ssh setup with known hosts and authorized keys umask 077 # Copy the files and set the permission cp /boot/config/ssh/ /root/.ssh/ cp /boot/config/ssh/authorized_keys /root/.ssh/ cp /boot/config/ssh/known_hosts /root/.ssh/ chmod 700 /root/.ssh/ #!/bin/bash # Start the Management Utility /usr/local/sbin/emhttp & I have rebooted many times and things work as expected. Make sure your files are in the correct directories. I hope this helps!
  5. Got it. I suspect that tl0910 hasn't rebooted remotehost yet - or I am doing something wrong. After reading this from ken-ji I did a bit of experimenting and found the answer. My go file now looks like this on remotehost (no changes on the go file on thishost): # umask for root .ssh setup with known hosts and authorized keys umask 077 # Copy the files and set the permission cp /etc/ssh/ /root/.ssh/ cp /etc/ssh/authorized_keys /root/.ssh/ chmod 700 /root/.ssh/ #!/bin/bash # Start the Management Utility /usr/local/sbin/emhttp & I have now successfully rebooted remotehost and thishost and things work. Next I am going to congiure ssh for another and disallow root logins - but one step at a time. When I finish I'llpm tl0910 with what I did and he can edit his original post if I am doing this correctly. Thanks again ken-ji and tl0910 - I continue to learn.
  6. I have a few free moments to try again - from scratch. I deleted the .ssh/ folder and all my created files from /config/ssh/ and /etc/ssh/ I followed the steps and after... ...everything was working as expected. I have the SSH Config app installed so I copied all files from /root/.ssh/ to /boot/config/ssh on both servers After I reboot "thishost" (as described above) everything work fine. I rebooted a couple of times and everything is good. After I reboot "remotehost" it no longer works. Yes I am still entering the commands on thishost. So - what the heck am I doing wrong?
  7. I hit another snag and just haven't had time to do anymore. I thought I had it working. I could ssh and rsync from the backup server using the keys and no password. But then I decided to try to reboot my primary (the one I will backup). Now no keys work. Not from the primary nor the backup server. Back to the drawing board and I will post when life lets me try some things. Thanks
  8. I think I got it. I was reading a post from ken-ji in another topic Then it hit me. I should not be using /root/.ssh/ but instead /etc/ssh/ - no? requires a password because /root/.ssh/ is empty But ssh -i /etc/ssh/Tower-rsync-key uptime does not require a password - even after reboots. Do I have this correct?
  9. Thank you for the reply ken-ji No - I am not ensuring anything. that is for two reasons: 1. I know very little LINUX (I grew up on OpenVMS if you know what that is) and 2. tr0910 wrote the following; By "automatic" I assume these things were taken care of. Perhaps I should not assume. In any event the .ssh/ folder is empty after a reboot. And yes I have the key files in the /config/ssh folder. <sigh> I have so much to learn - and I am an old dog trying new tricks
  10. Yes. But when I copy the keys manually this no longer seems to work and asks for a password. So I am doing something incorrectly. It's very frustrating.
  11. Perhaps I am just plain stupid; Everything is working perfectly until I reboot. I have installed the ssh plugin and copied the files from /root/.ssh/ to /boot/config/ssh/ After a reboot /root/.ssh/ is empty and a password is required. Thanks for any guidance on what I am doing wrong.
  12. Please - I need a little help. I had everything working as expected up to; Now I'm lost. When I make the change to the go file it creates the directory but does not copy the files. I am not a linux guru but I think there are some ;'s missing and the syntax is not quite correct. But - as I say - I am very low on the linux command line learning curve. I have copied the files manually but I am now being asked for a password. So I tried the easy way... I am also very new to unRAID v6. As a matter of fact I just upgraded from v5 so I could try this. So this plugin stuff is a mystery to me. I did install the ssh plugin but I have no idea how to configure it properly to make it persistent to reboots. Would someone be able to guide me please? Thanks
  13. Thank you for the step-by-step. I think I'm going to give this a try.
  14. Thanks DZMM - that's new since I last tried plex. But that looks like the collection is manually configured. KODI does it automatically.
  15. Thank kizer This looks like it is exactly what I want to do.
