Rookie (2/14)



  1. Observed behavior: When the web GUI is accessed, the domain.cfg is rewritten to. This seems to occur just after the login. Infrequently, this also happens when clicking to a different page within the web GUI, such as clicking on "Dashboard" or "Main" tabs, but usually the domain.cfg is rewritten only just after login. There are no apparent changes to domain.cfg in the process. VM's are disabled and has never been set up. (I am assuming that domain.cfg pertains to VM's based on the file contents.) How to reproduce: log in to Unraid web GUI. Observe that domain.cfg file time stamp is updated immediately. Expected behavior: domain.cfg is only written to when changes are made to VM configuration. Unraid version 6.8.3.
  2. I noticed that domain.cfg is being regularly written to. I assume this is associated with the VM Manager, but I have VM's disabled. I tried deleting "domain.cfg", but upon reboot, it is restored to the defaults and the constant writes continue. There are no ill effects, but this seems to go against the general intent to avoid unnecessary writes to the USB. Anyone else notice this or have any suggestions? I found this other thread, but no solution was posted:
  3. I love that expanding the storage pool does not require more than one drive change or addition at a time. I would like to see a plugin that helps to migrate the cache drive more easily. The cache drive is being asked to do more and more (due to dockers) but isn't so easy to expand. I realize there is a procedure for this, but I'm looking for something more simple.
  4. Here's what I have: - 2 parity disks - 4 data disks Here's the situation: - One of the data disks show 4 read errors. - There are no SMART issues on any of the disks. I have run an Extended SMART as well and all of the disks are showing no issues, including zero reallocated sector counts or pending sectors. - A full parity check showed no errors. I'm going ahead and replacing the data disk with the read error, but I'm wondering if anyone else has any other explanations or things I should check for.
  5. Can you recommend one with 6 bays? I can't seem to find a summary to work from and my trial and error method is not working too well so far.
  6. I'm curious about purchasing a used workstation or server and am curious what some of the latest recommendations are. For starters, what are some good recommendations for: 1) Single stream transcoding 2) 6 SATA or more 3) Xeon grade processor 4) Let's say no more than 5 years old
  7. I am interested in the suggestion for older workstations. However, each of those suggestions seems to have fewer than 6 bays for hard drives. How do you add lots of hard drives to one of those workstations?
  8. Thanks for the reply. I did not know those processors also supported ECC. Based on your information, I found the following which seems to work: Intel C236 - MSI C326M motherboard - Intel G4400 processor I believe the above meet all of my requirements: 1) ECC memory 2) Integrated graphics 3) 6 SATA ports Did I miss anything?
  9. I would like to use ECC memory and would like to determine what is a robust but relatively low cost solution. I use my Unraid only as a file server and do not use any dockers or transcoding, so my overall memory and CPU requirements are low. (I run just fine with a single core AMD Sempron and 1GB of memory.) My requirements: 1) ECC memory 2) Integrated graphics 3) 6 SATA ports From what I can see on these forums, two approaches are: Intel Xeon build - Intel Xeon E3-1225 v5 - SUPERMICRO MBD-X11SSM-F-O AMD Ryzen build - AMD RYZEN 5 1400 - ASUS Prime X370-Pro I would appreciate any help or description of any pitfalls in this search.
  10. I rebooted the server and the problem seems to have gone away. Weird! I'll call this issue resolved for now. Thanks
  11. Midnight Commander works and the disk size expands just enough to accommodate the new file. However, the mover script does not expand the disk size. This is terribly inconvenient. I don't want to copy a bunch of dummy files just to increase the drive size. Is there some other way to expand the allocated space? I'm about ready to abandon BTRFS and go back to Reiser.
  12. I actually filled it up with data and got a disk-full warning. It is a 1TB drive, it shows 459gb as allocated and I filled it with 458gb of data. Is there something that I need to do to force BTRFS to allocate more space?
  13. I have been experimenting with converting a data disk from ReiserFS to BTRFS with a 1TB drive. I am finding that after formatting the 1TB drive for BTRFS, it is only showing 459GB as available. Is there something unique about BTRFS that I am not understanding? More relevantly, is it inadvisable to use BTRFS as a data disk? Below is the BTRFS file system info: Data, single: total=459.01GiB, used=458.43GiB System, single: total=4.00MiB, used=64.00KiB Metadata, single: total=1.01GiB, used=516.22MiB GlobalReserve, single: total=512.00MiB, used=0.00B
  14. I noticed that USB Print Server was added in version 4.5.1 ( However, I can't seem to find any official documentation on this. Is this the same implementation as this thread: ?
  15. I corrected the original post to remove the HPA comment. I had two drives in RAID1 on an Intel mobo. I killed this RAID and used one of these drives as a cache drive and put the other in storage. Upon further inspection, the other drive (which has never seen this Asus mobo) has the same HPA. I assume that this is the Intel RAID HPA.
