  1. Reporting similar issue here with the 2021.01.19 Version: Last check completed on Fri 05 Feb 2021 07:08:36 AM EST (yesterday), finding 0 errors. Duration: 1 day, 6 hours, 38 minutes, 30 seconds.

  2. I set that value very high for testing purposes, trying to isolate if one of the 3 parameters in the A or B or C condition was causing the problem. I would normally set that value at 300. This is a very frustrating issue to me. On one hand I am happy that the server always does a clean powerdown. On the other hand I don't have a clear understand as to why it is shutting down before any of the 3 requirements have been met. I get my electricity from my local village that has their own power power station. The majority of the power outages that we
  3. Ok here is more info. I have a halogen work light that draws 425 watts. I confirmed that my unraid server(with both power supplies plugged in) draws ~ 190 watts running under normal load. I powered down my unraid server, disocnnected power and usb from my UPS. With my halogen light plugged into my UPS running on battery power I got about 7 minutes of battery time before the solid audible alarm went off. The Solid audible alarm went off when the UPS power indicator dropped from 2/3 bars to 1/3 bars.
  4. Yes I did.. I followed the instructions from Tripp Lite. Here is the Tripp Lite app reporting info on my UPS. I am starting to wonder is there is an issue with apc ups daemon and how it interacts with my Tripp Lite. The continuous audible tone that comes from the UPS warning of a very low battery, does the ups initiate that or did it come from the APC Ups Daemon on UNRaid?
  5. I will try that next. I just set the parameters low and re-ran the test.: Runtime left to shutdown= 4 minutes percent Battery remaining to shutdown=20 time on battery before shutdown in seconds=0 (Unraid help says 0 will disable this timer). Server went into shutdown mode ~ 3 minutes after power went out. interesting though my UPS gives a beep-beep-beep every 15 seconds when on battery power. After the ~ 3 minutes on battery the ups emits a continuous tone and that's when the shutdown starts.... The last value i see in UPS Se
  6. Yes I load tested these batteries. With nothing else plugged but a Halogen Work Light(confirmed power draw with Kill-A-Watt @ 400w). With the Halogen on and plugged into the UPS I flipped the Breaker Off. It ran on Battery Power for 4:45 seconds before it dropped from 3 Bars down to 2 Bars. Left it run for another 2 minutes with plenty of power to spare and then I turned it off.
  7. What does your OUTPUTV parameter show? Here are my 3 parameters. My understanding is that shutdown will initiate if any of the 3 conditions are met: Battery Level Falls Below 25% OR Time on Battery Exceeds 1800 Seconds OR Calculated(By UPS) Battery Runtime < 10 Minutes
  8. My UPS uses 3 x 12v 7ah batteries. I bought 3 of them back in July 2020. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003S1RQ2S/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Here are the stats when fully charged ups settings show 36.9 minutes of Runtime available and 24% Load.
  9. Here we go again. I still can't get a handle on why my server is shutting down within seconds of a power loss. UPS Power Level was at 100% before the power loss - the batteries are less than 6 months old. I asked this question before - how do the redundant power supplies work in my server, are both always drawing current? I have both of them plugged into my UPS. This is a Dell server. Unconfirmed but I am reading that Dell splits the load across both PSU's until one fails. Could that be causing my issue? Running on battery for &l
  10. Ok I got this sorted out. I didn't have the "Share" option toggled. I toggled Share on and waited a few minutes - all good now. I am using this UD as a Download bucket for Sabnzbd/Deluge/Sonarr. I didn't see the point in having this writing into the Array(and/or Cache). Sometimes I pull down large files. For example a 512GB RasPi Image. Any thoughts on this and what are other users doing? I know it's unprotected but it seems like a lot of overkill writing files into the array as they are being downloaded.
  11. Ok I did that and re-mounted the drive. When I try to access that share from Windows I get the "Cannot access share" message. I also tried accessing the share directly(\\mediatower\download) - that didn't work either. I don't understand what my issue is here. I have another UD with a share that I'm able to access(SabNzbd) without any issues.
  12. I retired this 4TB drive from my array and would like to use it as an unassigned device. Is there any way to rename the Top Level Share name? Currently it is HGST_HDN724040ALE640_PK2334PCG5232B It's too cryptic to use right now windows won't even recognize that. I tried using Krusader and doing a rename but it didn't work. Maybe I am missign something obvious. I don't see a way to do this within the Unraid UI or the UD Plugin. I have already formatted the Drive, it is empty.
  13. I stopped the array after the parity sync completed on 14TB in the Parity 2 Slot. I tried: Select "No Device" for Parity 2, Select "No Device" for Parity Select 14TB drive as Parity Result was arrray start button was disabled. Lesson learned. - big waste of time trying to do Parity Sync in Parity 2. I am now doing Parity Sync on 14TB Drive after making 12TB Parity drive as an unassigned Device and then making 14TB drive as one & only Parity Drive. Now I get to wait for another Parity Sync to complete before I can re
  14. Is there any downside to doing this? Makes me wonder how many are running with dual parity vs single parity.
  15. I did the parity sync on drive 2 so that I didn't have my array unprotected during the process. I am confident in the parity I have on the 10TB drive. Are you saying that I will have to do this again when 14TB becomes the one and only parity drive?
