    Why I like unRAID

    I do prefer the mixture of the both. I code up a bunch and drop all that into User.Scripts so I can click a button and it does its things. There's a lot to be said about a nice interface and knowing how things work in the background. I've always been intrigued with how things work in the background and it cracks me up watching people search for that "button". However, you are totally right you can win or loose a user if the interface is to complicated or simply not there. unraid has come a long way for me since 2009 when I started using it the interface was very limit
  2. Watch that video I posted. It will help you move from docker to docker and since Limetech's isn't really updated anymore its probably a good time to move on.
  3. Oh I assumed you stored your Plex Library on a SSD for that path. It don't matter as long as your Plex Docker location is intact.
  4. Keep in mind even if you blow out your Docker and delete it from docker.img your database and all of its files still live on /mnt/cache/appdata/ Unless of course you delete the docker and use the AppCleanup plugin then it clears it all up. And for the record you can uninstall any of the Plex Dockers and re-install any of the "other" Plex dockers as long as your paths line up everything should fire right back up.
  5. There is /mnt/user0/Movies/ - No SSD /mnt/user/Movies/ - Does Incorporate SSD I'm sure you know that thou. I tried at one time to come up with something of the sort myself, but honestly things started looking really complex tis why I thought storing them in RAM might be a decent idea and your script came to mind. Instead of it looking at the newest files maybe some targeted files would work. Could the script possibly be ran weekly proceeding the Mover and if the moved files does get moved have them moved back to the SSD? Otherwise I'd just recomme
  6. I wonder if you could modify this to target your specific movies and cache them into ram for those repeat performances. Sure its designed to cache the beginning of TV/Movies to allow you to start watching while the drive spins up and catches up, but that would be something @mgutt would be the expert at.
  7. Or at least some kind of Obvious warning explaining that it isn't wise to use it to browse from.
  8. You can click on the Advanced Tab in Dockers and look at what the CPU usage is for each Docker. Or Disable all of your Dockers and turn on one at a time and let it settle between docker start ups and watch your CPU. Process of elimination.

    SSD's in the array are not recommended as of yet. SSD's for a Cache Pool yes, but not as your sole array. I have an RV and I was considering doing this myself some.
  10. Nice fix. Just be careful using Notepad. Sometimes it might inject some unfriendly unable to see characters that Linux doesn't like when you save it. I normally use Nano within command line myself. nano name-of-file
  11. I'd guess its looking for updates. Shouldn't take long sometimes mine takes up to what I'd guess 10seconds, but it could be speed of your connection and the server its polling from. Sometimes the server its polling from could be slow or temporarily having some issues.
  12. Nice I had sorta the same results when I switched out my card too. I more or less did exactly what you did just earlier. I had some bizarre speeds and then all of the sudden drives would drop and indicate bad. If your satisfied can you please mark the thread as solved please. Basically just change the topic title.
  13. You could easily copy all of your appdata to your array using the Backup/Restore plugin then proceed to using the upgrade tool and goto 6.9.1. If things don't work out, take out your SSD restore your OS to 6.8.3 and then rebuild your SSD and restore your appdata. For the tool to backup. I'd create a share somewhere on your array. Call it CacheBackup or whatever you like. I personally have mine setup like this. Cachebackup ...Appdata ...Misc Appdata = All my AppData obviously Misc = Everything else The reason I create a folder like
  14. Are you port forwarding to your unraid server? I've been running unraid since 2009 and I haven't had one successful attempt to login to my machine other than myself. I also find it very interesting that you using the user name of Port22_Login_root_ScanBot
  15. What you could do is simply update What version are you currently running? If your running 6.8.3 you can't go back once you goto 6.9 because its recommended that you format your SSD a specific way, but if your not running an SSD as a Cache drive you can easily go back to 6.8.3 using the update tool. < ----- This is my understanding of the formatting of the SSD to 1M, but I could be wrong. The reason I mention that is you can upgrade to 6.9.1 and see if its trouble free for you. I haven't had any issues and I've been updating since 4.7.
  16. You'll also notice a vast improvement with Plex using an SSD. If you browse your Media it will load a lot faster since SSD's never technically spin down so it will display your meta data much faster nearly instantly. I prefer it that way because often family members will check Plex to see what I've added and if nothing sparks their fancy they just leave the app. No drives are spun up browsing and my server just sits there idling with no drives spun up until they are needed. Just remember like Hoopster said. Make sure you set your appdata Share to Cache Only so its not
  17. Just like always. Post up a Diagnostics. I always ask myself. What have I done. Touch a Cable, move anything?
  18. I followed the video of the DisqueTV one and got it work. The only problem I'm having is I'm getting some buffering issues when I play from the listing. If I play directly from Plex no issue at all. I'll continue to tinker with it some more tonight. I disabled the use of FFMPEG and turned off Transcoding since all my media can direct play on all my devices. Just a note any changes you make you have to click the update button in the settings, which acts like an enter button.
  19. Also if there is any thought you have something installed you didn't install change your Admin Password, because if you didn't install it who did? Id take a second look at all your dockers and open ports maybe you opened up something and didn't realize it.
  20. When you click the stop array button unraid spins up all drives first then disconnects/unsyncs them. Its just part of my mental preparedness procedure when I shut things down. Is it needed? Probably not, but its part of my OCD.
  21. I also found this. Says to "Make sure to enable "Docker Hub" in your CA settings"
  22. Seems to be something here. This is kinda interesting too. So if I'm understanding this I could pile a show into a listing and just let it go. Kinda like having regular TV, but in a Marathon view.
  23. Just keep this in mind. Over the years here I have seen 100's of posts from people asking how do I remote into my Server and countless times they have been advised not to do so because of one risk or another. This potentially could be piled on top of that same list of problems, but at the same time LimeTech has given us a more secure way than all of the other homebrew methods and is willing to work with users to constantly improve this method. This just like every other feature in unraid. If you do not feel comfortable using it or anything else its a choice just the same. I have
  24. Is this that Patreon thing you guys are talking about in Private? Tom is a lot Hotter than his photos lead him to be. Rawrrrrrrrr
  25. Yes Wrong Thread I'm sorry. Thank you for the answer thou. I'd move it, but last time I did that I ended up deleting an entire post.
