    Well, at least you got my age right. 


    I work in front of a computer all day and there is always a browser tab with the forums open.  When I need a break from real work, I just check what is going on in the forums. I can't help on a lot of deeper topics but I figure I can help out by picking off some of the easier things and freeing up the real rockstars to do their thing more.  😀


    Same! Lol 


    Litterally everything you said is the same. I was outside working with the younger crowd and I about died. lol

    When are we going to be able to move off using highly unreliable flash media for our servers? Surely there must be a way to switch this over to an SSD? It's rather draconian and i've been through a few flash drives on my server


    My 2GB Sandisk Cruiser has been error free since 2009. ;)

    It only boots up from it and then it just sits idle for days on end.

    One more thing you can try is to boot the server in safe mode with all docker/VMs disabled, let it run as a basic NAS for a few days, if it still crashes it's likely a hardware problem, if it doesn't start turning on the other services one by one.


    This is exactly what I did. Ran it as a NAS for a few days over the weekend while we was gone then went back to normal and turn on 1 thing at a time. We use Plex a lot so I turned on only Plex docker than each day I turned on another and another. Come to find out one of my dockers wasn't configured right and it was eating up resources and crashing. 


    Sometimes the simplest things are the key to fixing things.

    Exactly why I keep by boot flash inside my case.  Connected to a motherboard USB connector with a cable having a Type-A connector.  Can't smash it, can't lose it.


    Same. I got lucky that my Motherboard has an onboard USB port. Just plug it in and forget about it. 

    I know its no help, but every time I do any major changes to my machine I always store a backup on my windows PC. Add a new drive, upgrade OS...... on and on........

    I would store it on, but it appears I only have a 2GB stick and I don't have enough room to make a backup. Lol

    Unraid doesn't seem to have any real thought put into it. Mover continues to move to full disks and ignores quota assignments. Disk splitting continues to just fill full disks (500G is reserved, which I find to be ridiculous that this is ignored and disks fill to 64KB). Does anyone actually use this seriously? Besides shfs everything else seems to be completely worthless.


    What am I missing?


    Some of us have been using unraid since 2009 or earlier. Trust me it works. It might be just a slight misunderstanding of how things work or how they are to be setup. 


    Looking at your Split Level you have it set to first level only. That means only the main folder will be split.

  6. Not exactly the same, but I used a find command that checks a folder and it copies from A to B and moves to C. 

    find /mnt/cache/uploads/incoming/* -iname "*.mkv" -type f -mmin +10 -exec cp {} /mnt/cache/uploads/2check/ \; -exec mv {} /mnt/cache/uploads/Tv-Incoming/ \;

    So it checks Incoming folder and copies to 2check then moves incoming to Tv-incoming


    So this kinda does what your asking, but not exactly.  You could look for some code that utilizes inotifywait

  7. I know at one time unless its still active Plex added a feature that would save your viewing in the cloud. I don't know if its for all users or just the main account. 

    Maybe your experiencing the cloud watched status. I don't think I personally opted in for the cloud watched status, maybe you did?

  8. I've never done it, but I probably would of copied my database from the VM install into the new docker which, should of captured your watched status, list of movies and tv shows. 

    I've only really copied info from docker to docker which ideally is the same. 

  9. Can't you use Direct Streaming? If the Playstation 4 is capable of playing 4K directly then it shouldn't need to transcode. I have 4 AppleTv's in my house and I use direct streaming so their is no need to Transcode anything. 


    I don't use 4K since most of my content is ripped to 1080p so I can't truly comment on 4k content. 

  10. Please note. 


    This thread is for Announcing the newest release and mentioning any issues you might have. Please make another post in General requiring any technical support and link to it


    This is one of the only times we are asking you to cross post. ;)


    By doing this it reduces the amount of clutter that might happen and direct others that might have the same problem to the discussion.

    Sorry I can't help with the other stuff :) 


    PFt..... I'm taking you out of my will then. lol

    Nah I just wanted to give you some context of my above frustration. I know sometimes text doesn't convey feelings/body language and I honestly didn't check to make sure I didn't come across as overly aggressive or annoyed in my Original post.

  12. I'll look into it again. This weekend was a 4 day and if it could happen it did. Server was acting wonky, my kid backed out of my garage and wrecked the garage door, Thanksgiving everybody was late. Lol


    Thanks I'll look into this again. I really enjoy remote access and security. Not sure why I started having a few issues when its been running flawlessly for months.  Didn't help that I have ssh and telnet disabled and at the time my monitor wasn't connected. Lol


    Ah you can temp disable via console. Nice I was hoping for a pseudo back door in.

  13. This site can’t be reached

    Check if there is a typo in



    I'm getting this for some odd reason. I can't admin my server locally and now I'm sitting at a black screen because I'm trying to use the GUI. 

    Is there a way to disable all this temporary so I can admin my machine with a browser?


    When I type in my URL I get the above even on my local network. Do I have a setting turned on or is there a way to disable that. 


    I finally was able to login using GUI no plugins, but I can't disable the plugin since its not installed. I just want to get rid of that bizarre URL that isn't allowing me to manage my server until I figure out what is going on. 


    Update turned off Strict so I can resolve the URL and connect internally. Was finally able to get in via no Plugins using GUI.

    Ye not complaining, just taking a note. I'm relatively new user myself, only been with unraid since 2016. The releases used to be rare, same with patching. Now the patches follow minor version releases in rapid succession. Have really vanilla needs though, so haven't been affected.


    Totally understand. I've seen people get really heated because of to slow releases or to many rapid ones. Just wanted to clear the air just a bit. ;)  I can't speak for limetech, but when your constantly innovating or trying to come out with little upgrades knowing your users depend on insuring the integrity of our data things can be slowed down a lot. 


    I'll take the dribbling of little updates here and there knowing things are going smoothly vs HUGE changes that could cause problems in my Environment.

    Is it just me or does it seem like QA is slipping with the 6.11? Last few releases feel like putting out fires.


    Exactly what users asked for. 


    it used to be a small group would do all the testing and it would take months. Everybody asked to be included in the process to speed up releases. Sure some of the changes can be annoying, but at least unraid allows us to report bugs, which you have to admit are addressed pretty quick and  roll back. ;)
