    Cannot Connect to Web GUI - [SOLVED]

    Thank you for the help. I will upgrade to v6; but before I do so I have a really dumb question: I won't lose my data by upgrading to v6, correct?

    Cannot Connect to Web GUI - [SOLVED]

    So I was a little impatient and unmounted the data drives via telnet before the parity check was done. I used the guide in the wiki to do so. Then I rebooted the system. Upon reboot I was able to log back into the web interface. However, after I pressed the button to start the array, it has hung up at "Spinning up all drives...Start array...Mounting disks..." I'm still able to telnet into the tower, but refreshing the webpage for the GUI is not doing anything. The shares are still unavailable on the network. I will attach the syslog so that maybe someone else can make heads or tails of what I have going on. All jokes aside, this probably seems like a great opportunity to upgrade to v6. syslog.txt
  3. Hello, I am running v5.0-rc12 and recently had a power outage. I was unable to get home in time to shut down the server properly before the battery backup ran out. I was able to power up the tower and login to the browser GUI and start the array. However, I refreshed the page and now it will not connect (I am getting the "ERR_CONNECTION_RESET" message in Chrome. I am able to login via telnet, but I'm not really sure how to determine if the parity check has completed. I"m also unsure of which commands to run to properly shut down the array and reboot the tower. Currently my shares are not available on the network. Any help at all would be super appreciated; I'm not sure if this topic has been addressed before but I was unable to find anything in the forums.

    First Try at an unRAID Box

    Thanks for the recommendation! I was definitely planning on using the cache drive as a warm spare. Thanks for reminding me about the size limitation on the drives as well. Hopefully I'll be able to get the drives up and running next week and throw some stats out as well.

    First Try at an unRAID Box

    I'm a former FreeNAS user who is building a new unRAID box. I'm really intrigued by the capability to add any size drive to an array. My plan is to start the unRAID box with a few drives, move my old data from the FreeNAS to the new box, and then use the old drives to enlarge the array. That being said, I'd like to post my component list and read what you experts think. My main purposes for the machine: XBMC server for 6 machines throughout the house Data backup for an ever expanding library of pictures Sickbeard, CouchPotato, and SABNZBd integration I am open to other "essential" plugins and uses as well. Case: NZXT Source 210 - will hold up to 12 drives with the addition of a 4 in 3 cage. http://www.microcenter.com/product/378074/Classic_Series_Source_210_Mid_Tower_ATX_Computer_Case Mobo: MSI FM-A75MA-E35 mATX http://www.microcenter.com/product/408925/FM2-A75MA-E35_Socket_FM2_A75_mATX_AMD_Motherboard CPU: AMD A6-5400K http://www.microcenter.com/product/400672/A6_5400K_Black_Edition_36GHz_Socket_FM2_Boxed_Processor PSU: Corsair TX750M http://www.microcenter.com/product/365787/Enthusiast_Series_TX750M_750_Watt_High_Performance_Modular_ATX_Power_Supply# Memory: Corsair XMS3 4GB DDR3-1600 http://www.microcenter.com/product/358348/XMS3_4GB_DDR3-1600_%28PC3-12800%29_CL9_Dual_Channel_Desktop_Memory_Kit_%28Two_2GB_Memory_Modules%29 Parity Drive: WD Green 3TB http://www.microcenter.com/product/364652/WD_Green_3TB_IntelliPower_SATA_30Gb-s_35_Internal_Hard_Drive_WDBAAY0030HNCNR Cache Drive: WD Green 3TB http://www.microcenter.com/product/364652/WD_Green_3TB_IntelliPower_SATA_30Gb-s_35_Internal_Hard_Drive_WDBAAY0030HNCNR Data Drive: WD Green 2TB WD20EARX http://www.microcenter.com/product/378062/WD_Green_2TB_IntelliPower_SATA_6Gb-s_35_Internal_Hard_Drive_WD20EARX_-_OEM Data Drive: 2x WD Green's from my old FreeNAS Case Fans: 2x Coolmax 120mm Cabling: Various SATA cables from prior builds Internal USB Header: Koutech IO-UU220 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815201028 So I'm starting out with 6TB in the array, and as the budget allows I'll pop in more 3TB or 4TB drives. At some point I'll have to add in a SATA controller card, and I'm definitely looking for recommendations on that. Noise is not an issue as this is going into a well ventilated mechanical room. My biggest concern is that the PSU will handle all 12 drives and the fans. I will upload some photos as I get the box assembled. Thanks for checking this out!
