  1. I did it, but the use was strictly to setup a USB based SSD to host my dockers for Serviio and minidlna. No issues other than I had a hard time getting all the settings for Serviio mapped to the right device - that kept two drives spun up for a while but that was sorted in December and since then - no drives spinning - Serviio works fine, serves my smart TVs and a couple of Rokus with content. Nothing wrong with Serviio - I just did some dumb things while setting the dockers up. I did set the SSD to automount. Also, my system is fairly static - just has 13.5 TB of storage currently and all my drives are pretty full. I *DO* understand your dilemma with being maxed on SATA ports - been there for a year.
  2. At least unraid and fix common errors is good now. Now I will work on the Roku boxes...they no longer like the content (won't accept any from the server) but nothing changed on the server side except the docker settings...I suspect I need to go turn the scraper setting back on in the Web interface. Thanks again! UPDATE: For anyone interested - I found the cause of the missing content. There was an update for Serviio this morning. It recreated without the drive mappings for my media. Everything is being rescraped right now.
  3. That was helpful...missed that stupid Basic/Advanced toggle switch...Dang it.
  4. I did try early this morning. There is no edit button for the Appdata Config path. If it were a Host Path, I could edit it. In reviewing some of the screenshots I took yesterday - it looks as if when this path was defined on Disk 2, it DID have an EDIT and a REMOVE button, but it does not have either one now? You're not wrong - I don't understand anything about Dockers, I get the benefits of them, but setting them up can be difficult for me. Thanks for your patience.
  5. I am having a new issue...anybody know what to do here? I got my drives to spin down (YAY!) but now the docker either doesn't serve content or I blow the container to bits trying to satisfy Fix Common Errors. A screenshot is attached. Here is what I did. I didn't try running anything from the docker after changing it last night. I just changed the container mappings so nothing is stored on a share on my drives - that is what was keeping drive 2 up all the time and because drive 2 was up, parity was also up. It was late, so I went to bed. This morning, I had an error reported from Fix Common Errors...it was suggesting that I needed a "/config" mapping for the config data - that mapping was already in Advanced Settings. Fix Common Errors also wanted me to set this mapping to RW Slave. So, I created a new duplicate /config mapping and set it to RW Slave (I think I did it right but obviously not) - when I pressed Apply - the command fails. (duplicated /config) So, if I leave /config just in the Advanced subfolder, the app will run but I get the error in Fix Common Errors since you cannot set that mapping in there to RW Slave. Plus, I found out that now no content plays on my Rokus. Any suggestions on how to correctly satisfy both criterion?
  6. And one hour later - both Dockers are running and ... All though the house, not a drive is spinning, not even one as small as a mouse.... Thanks guys! EXCELLENT diagnosis and recovery...
  7. Funny thing - I totally missed that Serviio makes reference to a config path, but I did not have one directly assigned. I guess it put it where it liked (it WAS "required") and I didn't catch it until now. (Probably on the disk with the most space at the time.) Bah! Humbug! Do these look like they have been reassigned correctly? The dockers restarted without an error after the modification. Is there an easy way to destroy the appdata share created on Disk 2? I'll know in a bit, if drive 2 spins down...no worries. Squid - thanks for clarifying that you CAN point these to a UD data storage device...it's nice to be able to deploy a docker to a temporary device to "try it out" and if you don't want to keep it, remove it from unraid, format the USB device and you're done. That is kind of how this started...I tried several media servers - minidlna worked fine until I got my roku devices...those needed some transcoding ability. I stumbled through the config for them and they worked, so I didn't spend a lot more time on them, but the configs have been wrong all this time. All I knew was that it was running my drives all the time and that is NOT GOOD for drive longevity. Happy New Year!
  8. Looks like you're right on the money...it doesn't appear to be possible to relocate this to the UD share I created...the only options in the dropdown are Disks 1 2 or 3. I cannot choose the Unassigned Disk share. So, when I do my upgrade, I guess one of the checkboxes for me is to install an actual Cache disk - at least then I can select it. This says that disk 2 is where the data for both of my dockers reside, so it makes sense that while the docker is active, the disk will be polled, even if there is no one watching anything. At least that solves the mystery. Attached are the two screenshots in the hope that this might help someone contemplating a similar move. Thanks, Saarg! BTW, do you know if there is any way to relocate this for the time being to the Unassigned Disk share, just is it possible? I know you could choose NO for the cache disk option, but I don't know if that allows you to use a UD share.
  9. Sorry - misunderstood - here are 2 shots of the settings for appdata...
  10. I am running this currently from a drive added using Unassigned Devices. (I had to - out of SATA ports and I needed to run a docker to share data with some Rokus.) If you can't see what you need from this shot - let me know how to get it and I'll post it a little later - I have to go do a couple of errands. I am ready to upgrade this system to an old motherboard from my son's computer upgrade, so I am about to have a bunch of shiny new SATA ports and I can deploy a more normal cache drive setup. You think this might be caused by the assignment via Unassigned Devices? (By the way - this drive is a USB3 based SSD - kinda like a big thumbdrive - but it is on a USB2 so that's the max speed - it isn't sluggish to respond, but it isn't like it would be if it was a real ssd on a real SATA port. It is fast enough for me.) So - it has no cache settings, since it is just a drive attached to the array but outside the array? It automounts on system start, but there is no cache anything enabled?
  11. And it's been more than 30 minutes since I changed the settings and drive 2 is still spun up...so the search continues. I did go read on the Serviio website but, as expected, dockerized apps are another can 'o worms. They did have some mentions of dockerized versions of Serviio, but it's all over the map - there was 2-3 for unraid, mostly for building a dockerized image, so I came back here.
  12. Attached are 2 shots - I expanded everything to show all settings. I thought it was scraping also. I have some media on Drive 2 that might not be " scrapable". Maybe Serviio doesn't like NON easily resolvable files for scraping? Kodi has issues with some of these files as well. There are basically 4 mappings: /movies /HD Movies (Blurays) /tv shows /Kids (Animated stuff mostly) Then I poked around in Serviio some more and I found this in screenshot 3 - maybe that will do it? I'll keep my fingers crossed. If my drive 2 spins down in 30 minutes...I'm golden. Thanks for looking Saarg!
  13. I'd like to first say thanks for this wonderful docker. Everything works as expected, but I have noticed something odd since I installed the Serviio docker. My Drive 2 and my Parity drive will not spin down. Stop the Serviio docker and you can spin them down manually and they stay spun down. Restart the docker and they return to being polled. I looked in the logs for Serviio from the WebGUI and there is nothing there that is unusual: [s6-init] making user provided files available at /var/run/s6/etc...exited 0. [s6-init] ensuring user provided files have correct perms...exited 0. [fix-attrs.d] applying ownership & permissions fixes... [fix-attrs.d] done.

I did try giving the app "privileged" access but it didn't do anything about the drives being spun up (as a matter of fact, it spun them ALL up!) I attached my diagnostics, is there something else I might try? I have had this issue present in at least the previous two versions of the docker - I am running 1.9 currently. Thanks in advance. tower-diagnostics-20171229-2331.zip
  14. I also found that Serviio works with my PS3 and PS4 devices and 2 Roku boxes. You might look at that as well. Serviio is maintained pretty well and there are several good dockers built for it. Universal Media Server works quite well under windows, and I had experience with it on that platform, so I asked for it to be added a couple years back and Sparklyballs was kind enough to build a docker (I'm clueless on how to build dockerized apps), but the docker was predicated on Linux. While UMS does exist for Linux, it really leaves much to be desired. The windows version is fabulous, waay more features, nice interface - Linux one, not so much - kinda stripped down - it might work but I never got it to be reliable - maybe my server was too weak to run it in a docker, but I can run Serviio just fine. I have noticed that Serviio is not allowing drive 2 to spin down, suggests to me that it cannot scrape something and it won't "give up" at any point, so watch for that if you try it. I did check in the logs but didn't see anything that jumped out at me. I know it is Serviio because if I stop the docker, drive 2 spins down after a while, followed by Parity. I tried Plex, lots of guys here love it but I just didn't care for it. It comes down to personal preference and if you want to share outside your network...if you don't care about that (I don't) then the costs for using Plex seem unjustified to me. You can do the same thing with Serviio for free. If you later decide you want to share outside your network, you can buy a key for Serviio and it supports streaming over the internet ( you get to trial that for the first week, I think?). It is a one-time purchase and then you're good at least until there is a major version release - I don't think there's been a major release in a couple of years. (Somebody correct me if this is inaccurate...)
  15. I only have 4gb of DDR2 ram, but I only run 1-2 dockers and none are intensive, no torrenting, no VPN, just a media server. I plan to up it when I upgrade the sever motherboard.
