  1. I can confirm that (a) QSV encoding also broke for me in a recent update, and that (b) reverting to v1.23.2 rectified this.
  2. I have spent the last few days tinkering with my unraid server, and it prompted me to see how old this thing is. So it turns out I bought my pair of unraid licences back in June 2010, more than eleven years ago. Since then I've updated the motherboard/cpu, case and PSU once each, and had to update the usb sticks one time as well. I've gone through a few hard drives but there are still a couple of WD Green 2TB drives that I think are from my original setup. One has over 10 years of power-on time recorded in SMART. The newest drives are 2 x 4TB Iron Wolf as parity and disk 1, along with a bunch of older 3TB and 2TB drives. Originally all I wanted was a cheapskate NAS, storing files and serving up video to a Popcorn Hour, then later to a XBMC PC. But since dockers became available.... totally different beast. The last few days we've been in yet another Covid lockdown with dismal weather as well, and then I got this message that lastpass is going to be either costly or useless. So I just puzzled my way through setting up SWAG and Vaultwarden. Then I added a calibre docker (I was previously running calibre on a VM, which can now retire in favour of the docker.) Then I added LazyLibrarian, and set it up so a few family members can log in and email books directly to their own kindles instead of asking me to do it. And then a friend wanted to grab some files from me so I added Nextcloud (not that there aren't other ways to flick a file over). So here is what my tween-aged unraid server does. Radarr -> Sab -> Plex for movies Sonarr -> Sab -> Plex for tv series NZBHydra2 (with NZBGeek, OzNZB, NZBFinder) Plex for a few other videos like some guitar lesson vids, family home videos etc Handbrake, set up to resize video files automatically as they are often unnecessarily large for my purposes Calibre just to download a magazine every week and email it to my e-reader LazyLibrarian so a couple of family members can locate and send books to their e-readers Vaultwarden for self-hosted passwording Pihole (one of two, the other instance is on an OrangePi for redundancy) Nextcloud (not sure what actual use I will have for this, but whatever) Also installed are diskspeed, speedtest, and a few other purely local utilities. It's impressive how very easy almost all of these were to set up. There was a bit of a learning curve with reverse proxy and a bit more fiddling with LazyLibrarian than with most dockers to get the functionality I wanted (automatically converting ebook file types in particular) but mostly it is a walk in the part. So I really think that my unraid licence is one of the best investments I've ever made. Now putting on SWAG was the first time I've opened up a port to the wider universe. I am a little apprehensive about it. It serves up only LazyLibrarian, Vaultwarden, and NextCloud. For security I have enabled and tested fail2ban for VW and NC (but not LL, which has inbuilt ip banning after three user/password attempts and at last check didn't log IPs for failed login attempts) and geoblocking to confine access to my own low-risk country. SWAG also runs on an odd port, rather than port 80 or 443, so it's relatively obscure. Still, I am not that well informed on security. Should I be doing more?
  3. I am running 6.1.9. It seems there's no harm done. Most of my array is 2TB WD drives, but parity, cache, and non-array drive all happen to be distinctive so it was easy to reassign drives and get going. The array drives other than parity are presumably not in the same order as before, because I couldn't find my printout of the assignments (I usually do keep one).
  4. Well, I just assigned the disks including parity, cache and non-array drive, and all is well - doing a parity check just like a new config, but dockers and VM are all fine which was my main concern. Odd.
  5. I have been UPS-less for a while, unfortunately, and a power drop out today created a problem. On power up, I simply have a big list of unassigned disks and unraid not running. I am afraid I rebooted before grabbing a syslog. But where is the disk assignment info recorded? I for some reason thought it was in disk.cfg but it doesn't seem to be. What could have caused unraid to lose this info? I can't see any signs of corruption on the memstick. Jason
  6. Much the same here. I have a small VM running XP that handles a number of tasks that I really like to leave running 24/7, but that I can't yet find a docker for, or that just happen to be easier to run this way. It has Calibre downloading some periodicals for me, a gmail pop3 checker running in chrome, and a few other things. I am about to set up a selective dropbox sync on it as well, and I will probably set up google drive at the same time. I would like to have a google drive docker but since I need the VM running, this is a pretty reasonable solution.
  7. Has this been explained yet? I have been getting this message the last few days. I just got it with no dockers running. It doesn't seem to have any effect other than to mess up the display on Midnight Commander if I happen to be using it.
  8. This worked perfectly for me; Headphones is now actually useable. Thanks.
  9. Sorry, I have since found a few threads on this that I didn't see when I first searched. Still reading.
  10. Hi, I am trying to improve the WAF (wife appreciation factor) of the unraid server. What I would like to do is map some of the dockers to more natural URLs. For example, instead of a docker GUI being at, is there a way to make it appear at a subdomain or something instead? With DNSmasq on my router, I can turn make a URL such as unraid.local point to, but I don't think I can make it point to a particular port. Ideally I'd have a bunch of links like plex.unraid, madsonic.unraid, and so on, or maybe you get the idea. I do want to keep everyone but myself out of the parts of unraid that can get broken... breaking unraid is my job! Jason
  11. Any help? Or am I the only one with this issue? Within Sab, what's the permissions set to for completed downloads? I've got mine to 777 and don't have an issue (CP / Sonaar actually move the files to the array) Well that's embarrassing... the field was blank. I imagine this will solve the problem - thanks.
  12. Any help? Or am I the only one with this issue?
  13. Hi all, I seem to have a problem with permissions. Everything that the sabnzbd docker downloads gives me "access denied" errors for any action (on my windows machine) other than reading. Of course on my windows machine I am connecting as a user who has access to the "Apps" share on the cache drive that houses all my docker stuff including the sab downloads. If I ssh in as root and use midnight commander, I can move the files around but they are still 'access denied' even when I put them in a different location. I ran the new permissions tool which fixed the problem for existing files, but new downloads overnight came in with the same problem. I have tried to search on this one but I am either not understanding the results or my problem is not the same. I suppose I can run "new permissions" on the cache drive regularly but I am hoping there's a better fix. edit: I ran chmod -R u-x,go-rwx,go+u,ugo+X *.* and chown -R nobody:users *.* in the folder I moved the sab downloads too, and now I can use the files as normal from windows. Some items were owned by nobody:nogroup, some permissions were also wrong I think.
  14. Thanks, I will give it a go and see what happens!
  15. Thanks for this, and sorry to sound dumb, but how do those mappings relate to the settings in the docker set-up, ie: /config /data /media Are your "downloads" media or data? I am not sure I have the mechanics of it right - SAB downloads the tv ep (or whatever), and parks it in a folder where Sickbeard can grab it, rename it, and move it to a media folder on the array..? Or are the steps not quite like that?
  16. Funny you ask this, I was wondering the same thing. My thinking was, on my cache SSD: ..../sabnzbd/config/ ..../sabnzbd/data/ [which sickbeard also points to for its /data ] ..../sickbeard/config/ and on the array: /media for sickbeard pointing to wherever I keep my TV shows. And couchpotato set up the same as sickbeard. I haven't tried getting it up and running yet though as I would rather get advice on the best folder arrangement before I start screwing around with it. I am also wondering where to put .nzb files so that sabnzbd will grab them, for manually downloads.
  17. ... but I seem to have screwed something up. I did some fiddling, Plex stopped working. No problem, I decided to just delete and reinstall it... the result, though, is Plex but not Plex Server. It just has client settings, no server settings, no option to add a local library or anything. Any suggestions on what error I have made? It is probably something dumb on my part. Edit: I think my error was to use "bridge" rather than "host" mode. Woops.
  18. Just installed the plex docker yesterday. Seamless installation, everything works. Thanks!
  19. I just had more or less the same experience - I got "connection refused" with Needo's plex, but binhex worked. I'm not complaining or anything, just thought I'd mention it.
  20. Thanks. Yep, I have since done a correcting parity check.
  21. Thanks! Well, I feel a bit dumb now but I am used to that
  22. I see. And it seems like xfs_repair does pick up md-devices correctly. So perhaps the answer is simply that I should have run /dev/md1 instead?
  23. I connected to my unraid box with SSH, then ran: xfs_repair /dev/sdi1 ... or some similar designation of the device (it might have been sdn1 or some such). I subsequently ran xfs_repair -L /dev/sdi1 I realise this was not the right thing to do on a mounted filesystem and it may have caused some filesystem corruption (I ended up with some stuff in LOST+FOUND), but I was really just experimenting. I seem to recall that other filesystem repair tools - for reiserfs and btrfs - decline to run on a mounted filesystem, or am I misremembering?
  24. Is it correct that xfs_repair runs on an unraid-mounted drive without warning that it should be unmounted? I lost some data recently, possibly (but possibly not) because of doing this. It was not critical and I am not complaining, but it does seem like a potential data destroyer if someone runs xfs_repair and forgets to stop the array first. I may be wrong about all this, but I thought I should mention it just in case it's a problem and you guys aren't aware of it. Jason
  25. Of course you mean after you have paid for the Windows OS for each and every copy you're running. Otherwise you're simply stealing from Microsoft. I'd hate to get into the debate about what really constitutes stealing, but I don't need to on this occasion anyway... I am just running one XP Pro VM. I paid for XP long ago, and today XP is probably not much use for anything except a VM. I am now setting up a second VM running Ubuntu and that will probably be it. I was talking about the idea of having unlimited amounts of (virtual) hardware to play around with.
