  1. Alas, this appears to be a troublesome beast. I updated from v6.12.1 to 6.12.2. In the Crashplan Docker’s WebUi it shows in the left hand popout: Crashplan v11.1.1 & Docker Image v23.06.2 Image 1 is what the Crashplan WebUi looks like when I start the docker. Image 2 is what the Crashplan WebUi looks like after I insert the password and click Continue. This is where the message pops up. If I close the WebUi and open it up the problem persists. Image 3 is what Crashplan’s Website looks like. The only item of note here is that the computer shows as online.
  2. Thanks for the quick turn-around Djoss. Alas no, Docker's WebGui Still shows the "upgrading to new version" message after entering login credentials into Web Gui's Interface. Edit after 3 hours: Docker's WebGui still throws the "upgrading to new version" issue Docker's WebGui shows version CP's Website Portal indicates Computer is Online & Backup is 100% CP's Website Portal shows version
  3. Howdy folks, Since updating to 6.12 from 6.11 I've been having the same issue as @Gico: I can't login the web-ui saying Crashplan is "upgrading to a new version"
  4. Howdy Folks! I'm in need of some help. Part 1 ---------------- Typical behavior & problem Typically when storms are coming through I go into the Web Gui, stop the docker, stop the virtual machines, stop the array, and only then power down. The Web Gui always comes back up after the server is powered back on. Last night a storm came in while I was away and the server shutdown via UPS due to an extended power outage. After reboot I can access dockers, VMs, network shares – but not the Web Gui Part 2 ---------------- Troubleshooting Via a IPMI KVM Redirect I can access the terminal. Running the following immediately allows access to the Web Gui: … /etc/rc.d/rc.docker stop … /etc/rc.d/rc.php-fpm restart From this point: … Diagnostics obtained (tower-diagnostics-20230507-0856) … Stopping the VM worked fine … Stopping the Array did not – stuck with /mnt/cache: target is busy – retry unmounting disk share(s) – “Log Snippet” at bottom of post … After about 15 minutes of this I then pressed power off in web gui … Part 3 ---------------- Power back on after step 2 Web Gui is accessible from Windows Os only after boot & an automatic parity check was initiated which is atypical (tower-diagnostics-20230507-0916) I only use http://###.###.#.###/Main to access the GUI – Chrome or Firefox browsers I can now fully access it via a Windows PC (had to dust this off) I can no longer access it via Android or Linux device on same network (which is all we really use here) I typically only access via Android … Part 4 ---------------- Questions 1 – What can I do so that this behavior doesn’t happen again? 2 – How can I make the Web Gui Accessible via a non-Windows device again? Thanks folks! … … … … Log snippet from part 3 above: May 7 08:58:33 Tower emhttpd: Stopping services...

  5. Good point JonathanM. Our AC runs 9 months a year... with a setting of 78*F. I believe it highly likely I'll need to replace 2 of the drives in the next 2 years: $140. Yearly Energy Savings over the next 2 years: $210 (lowered HDD power + 9 months of AC) Likely near term Cost savings: $350. That makes the decision, not a $700 one, but a $350. Mhh... is $350 worth: Reset of the bathtub curve / peace of mind Reduced Noise It very well might be.
  6. Thanks CharNoir. I mainly wanted a sanity check on the electrical cost savings --- another set of eyes to see if what I’ve stated appears correct. Saving $60/year at a cost of $700 certainly doesn’t make economical sense. Paying $700 now when I could replace an occasional drive for $70 also doesn’t make economical sense. However, a lot of my drives in my main machine are reaching the 10+ year powered-on mark and the backside of the bathtub appears to be coming into play. As such I need to weigh: Cost Savings Reset of the bathtub curve / peace of mind Reduced Noise (this is in my master bedrooms closet) Reduced Heat
  7. Howdy folks, My server has 7 OLD 4TB 7200 drives (2 parity/5 data) for 20TB of storage. These do not spin down due to my using crashplan (on about 3 Tb worth of the data). I estimate that these consume about 8 watts each. I believe I can reduce the array to 2 disks by moving to 2 20TB disks (1 parity /1 data) which would save 40 watts…. I believe this works out to be 350 kWh over the course of a year. My utility company charges $0.173/kWh (and climbing)… so by moving from 7 4TB drives to 2 20TB drives I’d save a whopping $60/year. Does this math look about right to you folks --- or am I missing something glaring here? A CMR SATA Seagate IronWolf Pro or Exos X20 look to go for $350 new - and $700 is a heck of a lot more than the occasional replacement cost of $70. Beyond saving electric costs - the server is in my bedroom closet & reducing noise would be nice. Also it would be nice to reset the long-int-the-tooth drives. Thanks!
  8. for anyone else experiencing this 1 - you'll find folks running on linux versions - including SteamOS having this very issue. 2 - switching the client to Beta fixes the issue.
  9. Sorry about that Kizer! Work went nutso and this fell off my radar. I ended up powering down all networked electronics - and since rebooting each the gremlin hasn't poked up it's head. I'll toss a diagnostics up if it happens again.
  10. Howdy Folks, Since updating to 6.11.1 my Windows 10 VM's Steam Client is failing every 10-15 minutes. The Steam dump message is 'fatal stalled cross-thread pipe' Has anyone come across this & if so know how to remediate? Thanks!
  11. Howdy folks, Anytime my Windows Work machine is turned on - on same network - Im getting CONSTANT logging showing: Oct 15 14:59:27 Tower nginx: 2022/10/15 14:59:27 [error] 4424#4424: *2478717 limiting requests, excess: 20.122 by zone "authlimit", client: (Redacted Work PC IP number), server: , request: "PROPFIND /login HTTP/1.1", host: "tower" Any ideas on how to remediate this? Thanks!
  12. Most of my 4tb HGST drives are 'Manufacturer Recertified'. I figure if they pass a few preclears, they are well past early bathtub failure, and any gremlins should have reared up. I've had a couple fail that check.
  13. Howdy Folks - can anyone point me to a guide to increase my stable Windows 10 virtual disk size from 70 GB to 90 GB? I'm running out of C drive space. Thanks!
  14. I’d love to update from 6.10.3, however I also rely upon nerdpack to install the following: screen-4.8.0-x86_64-4.txz ncurses-terminfo-6.1.20191130-x86_64-1.txz tmux-3.2-x86_64-1.txz mcelog-161-x86_64-1.txz perl-5.32.0-x86_64-1.txz kbd-1.15.3-x86_64-2.txz I’ve downloaded from the following: screen-4.9.0-x86_64-1.txz ncurses-6.3-x86_64-1.txz tmux-3.2a-x86_64-1.txz mcelog-180-x86_64-1.txz perl-5.34.0-x86_64-1.txz And I've copied the top 4 txz files to flash's /boot/extra I have not yet downloaded kbd-1.15.3-x86_64-2.txz, as the latest version is only available for slack 14.2. Question 1a - Do I first Uninstall the 6 tools using NerdPack, and then Question 1b - ...Uninstall NerdPack, and then Question 1c - ...Reboot the server? Question 2 - Are all txz files in /extra automatically installed at time of boot? Question 3 - Do I need to determine the version of slackware Unraid is using & manually download the matching set from**VersionNumber**/slackware-x86_64/ every time I update unraid going forward? Question 4 - What happens if I boot into a newer version of Unraid with an older txz in /extra? Question 5 - How do I confirm what tools are already included in Unraid's OS? Looking at the forums I *think* perl is already included - hence the reason I've not yet copied it into /boot/extra. Thanks folks!
