  1. I don't know if I'm the only one, but I'll ask anyways. When this Mover Script runs it spins up every drive that has a potential share that can be moved from the Cache to its place on the array including my Parity Drive. To make due with this anomaly I currently have my mover script set to run Daily at 5:45 which is 15minutes before Plex Docker scans my media looking for changes. I was considering changing my mover to hourly, but notice it still spins up every drive and for me there is no reason to spin up any drives if nothing is move on an hourly basis. Kinda defeats
  2. For the flash backup I created a User.Script and scheduled it to use the Daily cron settings and then shuts off. Utility-Backup-Flash #!/bin/bash echo "Start Flash Backup" /etc/rc.d/rc.flash_backup start sleep 10m echo "Stop Flash Backup" /etc/rc.d/rc.flash_backup stop So basically it starts the Flash Backup and tries to connect. If it connects then fine it connects. If it fails it tries every minute on my machine, but I'm giving it 10minutes of trying then it shuts off.
  3. Its appearing more and more to be a system wide problem not a per server problem. Limetech is investigating this.
  4. @ljm42 Same issue Unable to connect to
  5. Yes. its often referred to as Turbo which there is a plugin for that will check how many drives are spinning and enable that mode and disable automatically.
  6. Updated and couldn't connect. The realized it defaulted to "NO on allow remote connection" Up and running again.
  7. Currently I have my docker.img on an SSD along with my /appdata folder. I'm considering purchasing a NVME drive and as we know docker.img likes to write non stop is there any benefit to putting Plex on the NVME for speed and leaving everything else on the SSD including the docker.img
  8. Updated at lunch from to Myserver and I came back to work and I don't have access. Lol I'll investigate when I get home.
  9. Binhex Sent you another idea via PM if your wanting tinker more.
  10. Nice!!!!!! I was kinda wondering if there was a better way of insuring somebody couldn't just run chattr and remove the protection. Thank you for having the insight and willingness to do this. Just ran it across my media and seemed to work just fine. Was cool seeing the chattr binary in the logs being locked and unlocked too.
  11. Now that test mode is nice!!! I've been bumping up my days just to see if it'll move something and then restoring it to the days I want them to remain after I watched it move files. Meaning in English, thanks for the add. I wish I had it earlier, but now we have it.
  12. You could of done what I did. I installed another SSD of a smaller size for backing up my appdata and other small things and have been using an Rysnc script to back it up. I had an issue and instead of formatting my backup drive I erased my Cache/appdata drive. Needless to say some head scratching, complaining from the Family I restored it, but felt like an idiot for not double checking. Its not like I didn't have to unassign the drive, go into unassigned devices and click format. The size difference of 250GB vs 1TB or the fact that my 1TB isn't a Samsung. I WAS BLIND
  13. Do your self a favor and click on the Use cache pool (for new files/directories): on each share which should bring a help drop down or use the ? at the top right for a little explanation for future reference. I totally agree with JorgeB and itimpi you probably have your settings set to prefer which is doing exactly what your describing.
  14. Ok lets rewind here a bit. Lets say your ripping DVDs and they are typically in the 4-8GB file size. So I would set your Minimum free space for your Cache Drive in the cache Settings: to around 16GB ....... NOT your Share Settings that is different < --- I personally have a 1TB SSD so I'm not really worried about giving up that much space You have a share that is called Movies Now in your Share you have a few choices regarding Shares and the use of your Cache which also utilizes the settings mentioned above. - No Does not use Cache {Go straight to
  15. Personally I do mean personally. I think Podcasts should be a mixed bag of topics. Possibly reviews of Plugins, dockers, future content on and on. I think if you stick with one particular subject you might entertain some and bore others.
  16. Kinda solved this on my own just incase anybody else is ever looking for this solution. Not 100% how all the code worked, but tested and works. Lol find /mnt/cache/test -type f -name 'movie.jpg' | while read f; do mv -v "$f" "${f%.*}.tbn"; done
  17. With my Media I use Plex and an old Asrock ION 330 with XBMC installed. Long story short it works for my needs. When I rip a new disc and place it on my server Plex does its META Data thing, but I needed the extra files movie.nfo, movie.tbn, Fanart.jpg and obviously the Video file using a plugin called Lambda. The problem I'm having is I need to convert movie.jpg to movie.tbn, which isn't that hard. Lol I was tinkering with using find, but I'm kinda loosing my mind trying to determine some syntax and I was hoping somebody could lend me a hand. I used the following
  18. To be honest. I used to use Time Machine with unraid and then decided it didn't make sense overall for me. When my iMac 2011-2012 model had an issue it was looking for a USB drive of sorts and I couldn't get it to connect to the network to do a rebuild. Not blaming unraid because maybe I did it wrong when I was trying to restore and just opted for a fresh restore. So now I just use a USB drive and backup now and then and shelf the drive.
  19. @ich777 Thanks I'll give your suggestion a try soon. I don't like the extra whiring sound from the fans on this barrowed GTX 750. Built a silent server and the little out of balance, bad bearing sound is driving me a little batty. Lol I didn't try a dummy plug in the HDMI slot and I didn't know about the docker confiig change either. I have this in my advanced settings under extra parameters. --device=/dev/dri/renderD128 In my Bios I did enable dual video output I think it was in the GPU settings. It just never seemed to work until I dropped in this ot
  20. I tried to use quicksync perviously and I couldn't get it to work. Oddly enough while installing a GTX 750 for some trial and error. I had this in Plex docker setup. --device=/dev/dri/renderD128 Now when I tried useing HW transcoding I checked nvidia-smi it didn't show the card working, but in Plex it did show (HW) so apparently quick sync was working. I wasn't sure if it was installing the Nvidia plugin, clicking on who knows what got it to work. Lol I'll have to try it again sometime. Currently I have a GTX 750 installed and it has given my CPU a little br

  22. I just remoted into my machine using Chrome Version 90.0.4430.85 (Official Build) (64-bit) and it worked just fine. Did 4 back to back searches. The below is the last one I searched for. Is there a possibility your running some adware or something that might be blocking the popup results?
  23. I used it this morning and I didn't experience any issues. Honestly I don't think I've ever noticed an issue with the search within the Apps section tab. Maybe your having a Chrome Cache issue.
  24. @squirrellydw Have you seen this script? I run it once a month on all my media shares and yes I've actually tried to modify my files to no avail. I even created a few User.Scripts so I can just click a button to launch them as needed. Will it shut down a script? Probably, but a well versed knowing what hes doing person might get around it pretty fast, but I'm not going to make it that easy on them. Security.Lock.Media #!/bin/bash #noParity=true #arrayStarted=true /mnt/cache/appdata/scripts/ --lock-files 'yes' --media-shares 'Movies,TV' --includ
