    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. ;)

    Funny to get a reply to this so many months later. That's what I was doing, but I wanted to get minor revisions automatically because I spent way too much time flipping through the webgui of my server looking for routine maintenance to do. I want to tinker with the services I'm running, not the server they're running on.


    No one really seemed to care as the immediate reply was from a user who clearly didn't read what I wrote, and I got nothing else until this. Which (no offense) isn't what I asked either.


    I've since solved the problem on my own, in a way that I will not specify as multiple users will undoubtedly descend to tell me how wrong I'm using Unraid even though I paid for it and I can do what I like.




    AMEN!!!! It's yours and I would do like you want no matter what anybody tells you. ;)

    I often just give in sometimes and take the path of least resistance.  I don't want my VPN to update and crash all my stuff so I make sure I check it now and then and let the rest do its thing, but I totally get your doing something a tad different.

    It is always easy to manually achieve this for any release where you can obtain the zip of the release as detailed here in the online documentation accessible via the ‘Manual’ link at the bottom of the GUI or the DOCS link at the top of each forum page.   GUI support would be nice though.


    Thank you for putting up the howto for it. I just figured when we are nit picking little features/addons like this we have come a long way. ;)

    Here you go. I messed up. I forgot to re-add the done to complete the loop when I was trying to make the folders generic enough. I should of just left well alone and let you edit/figure it out vs trying to be all slick. lol


    #Remove Spaces-Linux and spaces are no good together
    cd /mnt/cache/Media/in/
    for f in *\ *; do mv "$f" "${f// /.}"; done
    #Create Folder from name and move to final location. File types editable below
    for FILE in `ls /mnt/cache/Media/in | egrep "mkv|mp4|avi|vob|iso|MKV|MP4|AVI|VOB|ISO"`
    DIR=`echo $FILE | rev | cut -f 2- -d '.' | rev`
    mkdir /mnt/user/Media/in/$DIR
    mv /mnt/cache/Media/in/$FILE /mnt/user/Media/in/$DIR


    I just tested this in my 

    /mnt/Media/in directory


    I used Transformers the Movie.mkv which was actually a dummy file I created to make sure I'm not deleting the real thing. 

    It converted the file from Transformers the movie.mkv to and then put that in a folder named exactly the same minis the .mkv at the end. 


    So Transformer the Movie.mkv 






    It even worked when I did

    Transformers (2007) (720p).mkv

  6. Currently when you look at the you see many versions simply because LimeTech gives us the ability to downgrade if needed. 


    I constantly see on Reddit and other places people asking if they can upgrade from their current version to a higher version, but they don't want the most up to date for one reason or another. Can the update script be changed to allow for any version that is available from the download webpage?

  7. I'll double check, but last time I looked Guest was disabled. 

    After re-enabling guest it was 192.168.11.* vs 192.168.7.*


    I disabled Relay in the network settings and its showing up as Local again vs Remote. I don't recall where I read it, but it seemed like a possible fix. I'm also not running required secure connections, which I've heard could trip up some machines. 


    I also re-started 3 phones and an ipad and they are all appearing as local too. I don't know why the relay setting was tripping up my setup, but I'm going to leave it disabled for a bit and see if it fixes the problem I also made sure to add in the Lan Network settings. I'm assuming that forces which ever Ip range is in it to be considered local. 


    Currently by disabling relay it seems to be working the way I want it, but I'll have to see what time tells. 



  8. I’m running Plex as a docker in unraid. I guess I’ll describe my setup and hopefully somebody will have an idea of what is going on.


    • Plex on unraid server
    • eero mesh network mostly wired backend. 1 router using wifi back end
    • Lots of Apple devices. Ipads, Iphones and a few Apple Tv’s.


    I’ve noticed some stuttering during video playback and couldn’t figure out why since I’m playing using direct play. I checked the dashboard and it shows video and audio being transcoded and it indicates remote with a bizarre IP address. My network is 192.168.7.x.

    I’ve never personally had an issue streaming anything in the house, but my son says every once in a while he will watch a movie and it pauses and then streams again. I checked what he is watching and sure enough it shows up as remote in the dashboard. He’s on wifi and it says remote.


    Isn’t remote for devices that are outside of the network? All of my devices are connected to the same mesh network including all devices wired. I’m not running any separate networks or customized subnets. all 192.168.7.x

    Is this a remote relay at work? I should have plenty of bandwidth in the house since everything is connected to a 1GB network.

  9. This is something I hacked together a while ago. 


    Remove spaces does what it sounds like because the second half errors out with spaces. 


    The second part creates a folder and moves the file into the folder. its been a long time since I created this and used this so I don't recall if it'll continue to move files since its not in a loop. Hopefully this will at least get you started. 


    #Remove Spaces from files prior to creating folder
    cd /location-of-files
    for f in *\ *; do mv "$f" "${f// /.}"; done
    #Create Folder from name and move to final location. File types editable below
    for FILE in `ls /location-of-files | egrep "mkv|mp4|avi|vob|iso|MKV|MP4|AVI|VOB|ISO"`
    DIR=`echo $FILE | rev | cut -f 2- -d '.' | rev`
    mkdir /location-of-files/$DIR
    mv /location-of-files/$FILE /location-of-files/$DIR

    Possible could get this added via mover tuning but it would be great to have mover settings per share.

    So for example I want my backups share to move to the array as soon as possible but I want my plex downloads to hang around on the cache for 30days... at the moment I have not found a way to do this.


    Also we need some kind of simple GUI for mover progress


    Easy do like I did. Set up your user share to backup to the array vs SSD. You can't get any more instant than that. ;)


  11. Nice Job @SpencerJ. Keep in mind everybody he has been working on this for a while and its always been a touchy subject of performance vs economy. Why can't we have a little bit of both? AM I right? ;)


    With my Current build I'm idling at 36watts and keep in mind I'm using the UPS readings from the dashboard. 


    Here are a few things I use. 

    • I've always been a fan of oversized coolers and big slow spinning 120mm fans vs the pancake style. Much Quieter, moves more CFM and has to be way more energy efficient. 
    • Also I like the PSU with the fans that never seem to come on unless the PSU starts to warm up. 
    • I always recommend as much medal on my case as possible vs plastic because medal transfers heat way more efficiently than plastic. 
    • I also use the Dynamix Fan Plugin so my Cage fans are always off and only my exhaust fan is pulling in air unless the drives spool up and then the cage fans come on. 
    • I have my Parity drive set to spin down after 30min and my drives at 45min. Your times my vary, but I figure I read way more than I write on a daily basis.

    I am having trouble updating from 6.9.2 to this version using the GUI. I get an IO error at around the 60% mark of the download which I believe is due to limited RAM onboard (2Gb). Is there a 'simple' alternate way to install from the download section onto the flash drive?


    I vaguely recall mapping the Flash Drive in Windows and then replacing a few files. The flash share would naturally be temporary.


    Any chances of you jus slapping some more Ram in your machine? You would benefit from it later as releases come out and give your machine a little more headroom to breathe. 

  13. Did you have any strange symbols in the share name?


    This is from the Help drop down:

    The share name can be up to 40 characters, and is case-sensitive with these restrictions:

    - cannot contain a double-quote character (") or the following characters: / \ * < > |

    - cannot be one of the reserved share names: flash, cache, cache2, .., disk1, disk2, ..

    We highly recommend to make your life easier and avoid special characters.

  14. Lol, Nice Job! ;)


    What honestly stresses me out is when my phone says it has an update and I click update and it reboots a few times and appears to take forever to come back on. 

    At least with unraid you can go into the USB and look for the previous folder and do a quick restore back to an older version if all else fails. 


    Make sure you install the Dynamix File Manager Plugin. Its pretty slick.

    Yep, that's the same thing I tried (see above).  Unfortunately, I need btrfs because I want redundant disks and it didn't seem to help.


    Exactly. I was running XFS switched to BTFFS and tried this too. Seemed to help some, but then I messed up my second drive in the pool tinkering around and switched back to single XFS. Switching back to single XFS seems to reduce the writes a lot. 


    From my experience its been the docker container 25GB file and its internal logs that seems to be doing most of all the writes. I think anything limetech does will be more or less be a hack a fix than a true solution, but only time will tell.
