  1. Thanks again man, I didn't know that... Now I do ?
  2. Thank you for suggestion. However after I added "booksonic" to the URL it worked. (Local network address Http://192.168.1.2:4040/booksonic And http://[mypublicip]:4040)
  3. Hi. I seem to have an issue connecting to the server. This is my configuration: I have the docker container running on port 4040. In my my router port 4040 is forwarded to my server. When I try to add a server in the app I add the following: Server address: http://[mypublicip]:4040 Local network address Http://192.168.1.2:4040 But when I test the connection the following error message appears: Connection failure. Resource not found, please check the server address. If I enter the URL http://[mypublicip]:4040 In my browser this appears: Error 404 - Not Found. No context on this server matched or handled this request.Contexts known to this server are: /booksonic ---> o.e.j.w.WebAppContext@769c9116{/booksonic,file:///tmp/jetty-0.0.0.0-4040-booksonic.war-_booksonic-any-1245044193839470733.dir/webapp/,AVAILABLE}{file:///app/booksonic/booksonic.war} Powered by Jetty:// 9.3.14.v20161028 If I enter the URL http://[mypublicip]:4040/booksonic In my browser I connect to the admin page just fine. Do you have any suggestions to what I'm missing? /L
  4. Hi. My Raindsonic Drive Cages should accept both SATA and SAS drives, but when I insert one of my HP 3TB disks, they don't even spin up. (but isn't that the case with SATA drive aswell if they aren't receiving the proper signal from the controller?) The drives in question are HP HMRP3000S5xnN7.2 I'm connecting the drives directly to the motherboard (AsrocRack EP2C602) SATA interfaces which are controlled by the Intel chipset, I have steered clear of the Marvel controller as I understand that here are difficulties between these controllers and unRaid. I have tried a direct approach around the drive cages, and inside the drive cages. Is there a setting inside the BIOS that I'm unaware of? Or is there a magic linux command that can help me? My second issue is that I have bought a Asus M.2 x4 Mini Card as I had a spare M.2 disk, And I thought that the drive could might as well be a part of my Cache pool, but unRaid doesn't recognize the drive, again i ask humbly: Is there a linux command or two that can help me out? I have included the diagnostics, please let me know if there is anything else you need from me. Thank you all in advance LooZypher darktower-diagnostics-20170702-1502.zip
  5. Hi Everyone I'm facing a problem with the api sending the wrong string it is sending this one: https://[MYTRACKER]/couchpotato.php?imdbid=tt3731562&search=Kong%3A.Skull.Island.2017&user=[MYUSERNAME]&passkey=[MYPASSKEY] It doesn't return any hits If I alter the url to this: https://[MYTRACKER]/couchpotato.php?imdbid=tt3731562&search=Kong.Skull.Island.2017&user=[MYUSERNAME]&passkey=[MYPASSKEY] It returns multible hits. How can I modify this? I have found several fixes, but they include altering a file that I either don't have or that I'm too stupid to find: __init__.py (This file I found, but it is empty, safe for a single line: "#Don't remove this file") Another fix sugested this: But if I look at one of my log entries it refers to a similar path. Can anyone help me find this path? it is not rooted in the /mnt/user/appdata folder on my unraid system Any input would highly appreciated. /L
  6. Hi. I've just added a fifth disk to my array, and wanted the my share to be able to take advantage of said disk, but I don't have the option do add a fifth disk (or a fourth for that matter). Is there anyone outthere that coould point me in the correct direction? Thanks L.

    EP2C602

    Maybe you guys can help me out here. I have a pair of SAS hdd's that I wanted to connect to my array, but the are not recognized. I have bought a backplane enclosure from raidsonic, namely the IB-565ssk, which supports both data and SAS disks. The disks are connected to the motherboard (to avoid confusion it is the above mentioned motherboard) to the ports xo trolled by the chipset, but they are not being recognized by unraid, a sata disk is mounted in the same enclosure and this is working as expected. As far as I can tell there isn't anything misconfigured in the BIOS, would it make sense to try to connect the SAS disks to the SCU ports on the motherboard? Any input is highly appreciated. Thank you L.

    EP2C602

    For some time now I wanted to upgrade my homeserver, the one I have now is based on a 1st gen core i5 processor with 8GB of Ram sitting on an m-itx motherboard with only four sata connections. The four sata connections quickly became an obstacle to expand my array of harddisks. I solved that by buying a cheap Sata Controller I/O board, and to my surprise it actually worked very well. The Sata Controller allowed for an additional 4 Sata connections, which of course is great, but now I don’t have the opportunity to add other I/O cards because of the m-itx formats limitation of only having one pci-e port. I really like the m-itx form factor because of it’s physical size, but it is also the physical size that is it’s limitation, what I needed was a new motherboard. I contacted Asrockrack to see if they were interested in sponsoring this endeavor of updating my server, and it turned out that they would, and a few days ago this came: A both classy and anonymous looking box with only a little information on the front, and just a little more on the back: Information is maybe stretching it a little, it is more advertisements but that makes sense to me, as the folks that buy this are for most part aware of what they are getting into, and they don’t necessary need more information from the box. A box is all good and well, but what really is interesting is of course the content: What we see here is A drivers DVD Five SATA cables An I/O shield A manual My initial thought was that isn't much; I'm used to mainstream boards where there are screws, ceramic washers, door hangers, a soundcard or maybe even an antenna for Wi-Fi. but this is not a mainstream motherboard, it is servergrade and made for professional use, so door hangers aren't really a buying factor - Come to think of it, is a door hanger really a factor when buying factor when buying mainstream motherboards? And here it is, the crown jewel; the ASRockRack ep2c602: Initially I proposed ASRockRack to sponsor the EPC602A, which is a single socket motherboard - more that adequate for a home server, but as these boards feature chipsets that were launched in Q1 2012, they aren't the newest out there, and the epc602d8a was no longer in stock, so ASRockRack suggested the ep2c602; I humbly accepted. The center piece(s) of the ep2c602 are of course the two LGA 2011 cpu sockets, capable of supporting a large variety of intel Xeons int both Ivy- and Sandy bridge flavors, that means that should I ever want to upgrade the CPUs in this build I would have ample choice. To the left and to the right of the sockets (respectively) we see the mosfets, they are kept nice and cool by the heatsinks. Above and below the Dimm slots are clearly visible, combined they support 256GB of RAM. Though that would require that both CPU sockets are populated. Should only one CPU be used, it should be mounted in the left most socket, and as indicated earlier only the corresponding Dimms are usable in that case. The 20+4 pin ATX connecter can be seen on the lower edge, and the two EPS 8 pin connectors are seen in the bottom left corner, and on the right edge, there are two because there are two sockets, these EPS connectors feed the mosfets with power, they in turn feed the CPU with ripple minimized current. There are no less than eight fan headers on the ep2c602, the seven are of the 4pin PWM persuasion, that means that noise from fans forced to run at full speed is nothing to be worried about, with this board. The two remaining headers are placed near the second CPU socket; convenient. Ah the disk connectors... The four blue ones farthest away are actually SAS connectors, I don't own any SAS drives, but my guess it isn't a problem connecting SATA drives to those, they should be compatible, there is only one way to be sure... Testing. The four blue ones that are right angled on the PCB are SATAII ports and are, together with first two white ports (They are SATAIII though), controlled by the chipset. The last four white ports are SATAIII and controlled by a marvel controller. Notice how the ten angled SATA connectors are pulled back from the edge of the motherboard? Yeah I was wondering about that myself, but it turns out it isn't a bad idea, but more on that later. The keen eye has probably already seen the onboard USB connector, this will come in handy; my operating system of choice is Lime-Technologys unRaid, which runs directly from a USB drive. Behind the USB connector we se a pair 7 segment led displays which server the purpose of helping with diagnose the system should there be any errors. On the Rear I/O panel we see some legacy connectors PS/2 for mouse and keyboard and a Serial connector, even though the latter isn't use that often it can be very useful when working with network devices, as the preliminary configurations needs a serial connection. We have the standard VGA connection, this system is going to run headless, but with early testing and configuration this will come in very handy. Three RJ45 ports, two gigabit ports for LAN connection and one 100 megabit port for IPMI connection. I will do a more in depth post of the IPMI function. For now I will say that IPMI from an administrators point of view is bloody awesome! The EP2C602 is an older motherboard, it still is build on a solid technology and should prove to be a very good and sturdy base for my build.
  11. Intro Vendor: Transcend Equipment: MTS400 M.2 256 GB Price: (On test date) £92.57 or 114.45$ Even though that I am satisfied with my 1st gen EliteBook 850 from HP it has always bothered me that the SSD that came with the 850 is only 128 GB. I am attending school as Data Technician, were we quite often are handling Virtual Machines, and as you can imagine; 128 GB with an OS installed, with project files etc. there isn’t much room for many Virtual hard drives. Luckily the 1st gen 850’ies have a slot for a m.2 SSD, but it is limited in length to 42mm. I began to scout the internet, and I quickly found the Transcend MTS series M.2 SSD. The MTS series from Transcend come in 4 different flavours - Picture borrowed from their website: As you can see the largest difference between the four of them are the physical characteristics of the m.2’s. And that the MTS800 can be acquired with up to 1TB in capacity. As mentioned the my EliteBook only has room for a 42mm m.2 so the MTS400 is the one I bought with 256 GB capacity, this to me was the perfect balance between cost and capacity based on what I am going to use the m.2 for, namely small Virtual Machines lab when I am at school. 256GB should be enough for four windows server VM, a router VM and a Windows or Linux client. The MTS400 is based on the MLC NAND flash technology MLC is an acronym for Multi Level Cell this means that the cell can store multiple bits, this is very good news for production costs, but unfortunately it has its drawbacks as the cell deteriorates faster than for example eMLC (enterprise Multi Level Cell) and SLC (Single Level Cell), but is more durable that TLC (Tripple Level Cell). The MLC NAND flash cell has a read/write life cycle expectancy around 10’000. This doesn’t concern me that much though, it should be able to handle over 2PB of read/write cycles (this is theoretically though, my guess is that the first failures will occur at around 1PB, I haven’t done a read/write test of that magnitude, as It would render the m.2 useless). Testing Testmachine: HP EliteBook850 G1 CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-4300U RAM: 2 x Kingston KCP3L16SD8/8 1600mhz Main Storage: Micron RealSSD C400 2,5” 128GB The first thing I tested was to copy two 10 GB dummy files from the M.2 to the SSD in my laptop. As you can see on the left, read performance on the M.2 quite exceeds the write performance on the SSD as was to be expected: The M.2 isn’t even sweating. The next thing was to reverse the test; I copied the same two 10 GB dummy files back to the M.2 Here the M.2 is working quite hard to keep up with the input from the SSD, again it was to be expected. But it is interesting to see that the M.2 write is maxing the SSD’s write speed, but the SSD can’t quite max the M.2 write speed (albeit marginally). Next I wanted to see how the M.2 handles small files. I created 10240 1MB dummy files, as above I started with the read speed. Again, we see that the M.2 isn’t under large stress, but the transfer rate is quite slower, than with the large files Now to the write, I copied the lot back to the M.2: A whopping 220MB/sec slower that with the large files. I didn't just want to take Windows words for the result so I tried AS SSD Benchmark tool. The AS SSD Benchmark tool has several tools build in., The main tool measures read/write speeds and access time: The second tool benchmarks the copy performance of the M.2: This is about what I expected from the numbers we have seen in the previous test. The third tool I found quite interesting as this measures compression read and write speeds: As we can see there are no significant drops in speeds when handling compressed data. Conclusion The Transcend MTS400 256GB is not a blazing fast M.2 SSD, especially with smaller files, nor is it the most durable given it is MLC structure. But the MTS400 is not aspiring to take the first price in either durability or speed. However, the price tag speaks for itself it is cheap and it works, it is as simple as that.
  12. Thank you all The i3 processor is a great suggestion, but I'll go with my i5 for now, as I have that laying around. I will at a later point buy an xeon e3 12xx v3 to complete the build... Any suggestions on which I should settle on?
  13. Thank you for the reply. I think I'll go ahead and buy it, I will by some regular RAM if it should have trouble booting. L.
  14. Have I found a question to which the Interwebz doesn't have the answer?
