  1. Hey, Nice plugin, thank you for the work you put into this! I keep deleting games when my computer cleaning instinct kicks in, usually it means deleting all my steam games etc, but I get bored easily and are pretty random as to what i want to play at a given time. Last month i downloaded gta5 3 times Just to save some time a cache would be nice, as I'm also have LANs from time to time with my friends. I could prolly stop freeing up diskspace, but hey, there's a even lazier option if i got it cached locally I tried getting this to work; If i configure the steamcache ip as my dns on my gaming rig, it works downloading with steam, but dns is not working for any other sites. is a pihole running on a different unraid server on my LAN. Pihole then in turn uses google dns. Any advice ? I though the point of defining a UPSTREAM_DNS means that all the stuff steamcache docker cannot resolve itself, it forwards the query to the upstream dns ip - which in this case is my pihole, and returns this to the client. I see that I have some steam-dns queries from the docker ip, but as soon as i try something else it doesn't log anything.
  2. Hey, See attached snip, worked fine until i set up active-backup on my network. Cache in Chrome has been emptied without any difference. Not a function breaking bug of course.
  3. Hello fellow Unraid users. I've gotten myself a secondary unraid license for my old gaming rig and seem to have some issues with stability. It runs amongst other stuff the pihole docker and plex docker which my old box used to run. when i ran both these on my old box and a library scan is running, the old box is pretty much stuck in 100% cpu for hours and pretty useless for accessing media and using pihole (dns stops working). Prolly because of fillrate on my wd red drives. But no matter, the old storage box is not the issue here. The issue i have with the new box is that after about 3-4 days pihole turns unresponsive resulting in no more dns. I could switch dns but that's not the point I can access the machine in gui mode, webgui works but sometimes just doesn't respond to key/mouse inputs and forces me to hard reset (yes, this is far from optimal). To me it looks like the network just dies followed by a panic state, at least that is what the symptoms would suggest. I do not have a complete log of what exactly happens but I'll add the debug log, a screenshot of the systemlog right before it hung today and here are the hardware it is running on: Model: N/A M/B: MSI Z97 GAMING 5 (MS-7917) Version 1.0 - s/n: To be filled by O.E.M. BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. Version V1.13. Dated: 02/16/2016 CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz HVM: Enabled IOMMU: Enabled Cache: 256 KiB, 1024 KiB, 8192 KiB Memory: 24 GiB DDR3 (max. installable capacity 32 GiB) Network: eth0: 1000 Mbps, full duplex, mtu 1500 Also to note, the NIC is a Killer E2205 - I'm thinking this might be buggy or something. Are there any particular BIOS settings that could be messing this up perhaps? labrador-diagnostics-20190827-2036.zip
  4. Well, there you have it. It works ! Thanks a lot for the help, i was pulling my hair out, had to be something super trivial I had missed
  5. Sorry about that! docker run -d --name='bookstack' --net='br0' --ip='' -e TZ="America/Los_Angeles" -e HOST_OS="Unraid" -e 'DB_HOST'='' -e 'DB_USER'='bookstack' -e 'DB_PASS'='bookstack' -e 'DB_DATABASE'='bookstack' -e 'TCP_PORT_80'='6875' -e 'APP_URL'='' -e 'PUID'='99' -e 'PGID'='100' -v '/mnt/user/appdata/bookstack':'/config':'rw' 'linuxserver/bookstack' 5f2f592ab53d59b44c1a0425323e26d9ec71c52c0b844850b4d4ff2380608451
  6. So, how on earth do you get bookstack to work ? Tried MariaDB docker, default settings, specified root password, specified user via mysql workbench, "bookstack" with password and grant all - Access Denied Created database manually, adding grants and flushed privileges - access denied Tried Mysql standard docker, specified root user just to test, access denied because unsupported authentication (cached sha2), created user with standard authentication - access denied. Created database manually, adding grants and flushed privileges - access denied. In both instances i can logon to both mariadb and mysql standard docker with no issues and all rights/grants. Thought it might be some wierd network issue. I therefore set both the mariadb docker and bookstack to custom;br0 with their own specified iPs ( and .6) - access denied br0 is defined as a in docker settings so it should be fine. log output [cont-init.d] 10-adduser: exited 0. [cont-init.d] 20-config: executing... [cont-init.d] 20-config: exited 0. [cont-init.d] 30-keygen: executing... using keys found in /config/keys [cont-init.d] 30-keygen: exited 0. [cont-init.d] 50-config: executing... App Key found - setting variable for seds Running config - db_user set nc: getaddrinfo: Name does not resolve nc: getaddrinfo: Name does not resolve nc: getaddrinfo: Name does not resolve nc: getaddrinfo: Name does not resolve nc: getaddrinfo: Name does not resolve nc: getaddrinfo: Name does not resolve [Illuminate\Database\QueryException] SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045] Access denied for user 'bookstack'@'bookstack.br0' ( using password: YES) (SQL: select * from information_schema.tables where ta ble_schema = bookstack and table_name = migrations) [Doctrine\DBAL\Driver\PDOException] SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045] Access denied for user 'bookstack'@'bookstack.br0' ( using password: YES) So yeah, added this bookstack.br0 host to the from host privileges in mysql - access still denied. Mind you the host privileges is pr default set by me to % = wiildcard yes you should secure stuff etc, i will do that when stuff is working, right now i give up
  7. A summary of what i did in terms of flashing the card, just check the last post, hopefully it helps :
  8. Hey, it really isn't breaking functionality in any sort of way, but I'd think it would be practical to have a button to manually starting the mover-process on either the Dashboard page or for instance the cache tab on the Main page. Most users of course do this via the scheduler which in itself is totally fine, but when moving large amount of data externally to server it would be a valuable function in some user scenarios (at least for mine :)). Cache gets filled quite fast and since in my usercase they are ssd's, big ones costs a bit much. Just an ease of use kind of thing, as the only way to do this now is via Settings -> Scheduler -> Mover Settings. Thanks and happy holidays!
  9. Allright, stuff finally arrived from china in time before the holidays. So I've been messing with stuff today. For flashing IT mode i followed the following guide: https://www.servethehome.com/ibm-serveraid-m1015-part-4/ A quick note before the before note: Get long enough SFF cables! I bought 50cm, you should at minimum get 1m cables. A few notes (if anyone is doing the same): The easiest way to do this is with a seperate computer, try to borrow from someone if possible. I flashed the card with IT mode without a Option ROM. This is to save some boot time as the option rom is not used. It usually is for configuring RAID (but we do not use a RAID for unraid.). To do this, the flash command looks like this: sas2flsh -o -f 2118it.bin On UEFI it would be: sas2flsh.efi -o -f 2118it.bin I used freeDOS booted from USB for clearing the firmware, and ended up having to use UEFI for writing firmware and setting the SAS address. This varies on your hardware of course. I got a PAL error in freeDOS when trying to write the firmware, this is normal it seems. FreeDOS bootable USB can be created super easy in Rufus, just copy the files from the guide to USB afterwards, overwriting autoexec.bat is ok. it isn't needed for this. Another thing, do NOT mount your disk in UEFI, just do 'fl1:" <- depending on your device. I had one disk connected, but the devicelisting i UEFI cleary said 'USB' Using 'mount FL1' would not work in UEFI. Also, to flash in UEFI you will need the .efi version of the sas2flash tool. I found it inside Installer_P18_for_UEFI.zip and just googled it. here: https://rebyte.me/en/avago/157482/file-1538648/ it seems antivirus does not like .efi files, so if it's gone, check your antivirus. I had no issue with windows defender, but it's really not all that strict on my client. If you've booted to UEFI, got it flashed etc the last step is to set the SAS address for the card. The numbers will only matter if you have more than one card (think of the SAS address as a MAC-adress, having identical MAC-addresses will create a conflict and the network would not work, same with SAS). I'd of course recommend using the card's unique address, but any numbers should do. (16 hexadecimal numbers in total, including SAS prefix). Thanks for the tips, and hopefully this will help someone. If you have any questions, pm or mail me.
  10. Ok, sorry for the late reply, Thank you for your recommendation I was browsing around a bit on ebay and found a IBM ServeRAID M1015, which is a LSI9211-8i controller really. Thisc an be crossflashed with a IT/HBA firmware so it should do the trick. Cost was £28 with free shipping, SFF cables was like £7
  11. Hey, a bit late to the party, sorry. Yeah I had the same experience once, so i read up on it and asked some security dudes at work, they gave me a crash course. A good mindset (for interwebs stuff specifically:)) is to always assume a vulnerability exists, you are never safe, regardless of what you do. 🐱‍👤 In my mind i would say you're in a good spot (or as a good spot you can get) regarding how you've setup your system for remote access. I would do the same, I'm just going to use a reverse dns as well, just think the available duckdns domains are boring . But this will not increase security by any measure. Its just an A-record for my own domain that points to the registered duckdns-domain, as IPs are not likely to change much when i get my fibre at the end of the year.
  12. Thanks for the reply John_M, much appreciated! I could see controllers might the issue, it would be pretty wierd if it was my drives after all, since I've replaced a bunch of them. It has never been an issue until the last few months. Good to know. I guess it's time to stop using my cheapo china sata controllers and get something worthwhile.. pretty evident it came back to haunt me. Lesson learned So, I've got 2x cheapo sata controllers, both got 4 ports, so I'm in the market for a 8 port pciex LSI sata controller it would seem. I cannot physically fit any more drives in my current box, so no need for any more ports. Also, the idea is then to replace controller, boot server, array will fail, stop it, assign correct disks to the correct slot and restart array right ? Any recommendations for what LSI controller to get ?
  13. Hey, so during the last few months i've been having issues copying files to my array, issue seems to come whenever the cache mover process is running on large transfers (+/- 2-500GB). Well, the thing is, as my internet sucks where i live, i've got a server located somewhere else where i physically move a usb drive back and forth, which is fine for my needs at the moment. Fibre is on it's way but it will be a while still. I bought a few seagate 4tb drives during the summer since the price was very good, I've normally ran WD Reds and have never had any issues. So a few weeks later my seagate drive started acting up, fine i thought, got a RMA and a new drive. While doing running the mover again the new one also died. Fair enough, unlucky I guess, so I RMA this one as well. Got a new one, same story, didn't find anything wrong, so i've later moved this disk to another server and it works fine. I got a WD Red as a new replacement in my current local server. While i changed the drive, i also switched sata cable just to be sure. But it happened again now.. So could anyone tell me what the heck is actually going on ? I'm getting a bit impatient running rebuilds that takes 2 days a few times a month. Server has been working fantastic up until the last 3-4 months. This seems to happen during the mover process from my ssd's to my array. A few other disks also reports issues, but they're never exluded from the array, only disk 11 (SDN) is. SMART never finds physical issues on either of these disks. Is there something I'm doing wrong ? Is there some config i need to be aware of ? attached is the diagnostics log dump. Please help, and thank you in advance. blackbox-diagnostics-20181125-0030.zip
  14. If you need access to stuff on your unraid from the interwebs, base this around VPN. Assume services are in themselves unsecure (for example ssh). At least for ssh (and other common services, like Plex, FTP etc) never forward and use default ports as these will mitigate 99% of all automated scans from bots, but you should never access your server this way. Using default ports is a bad practice and gives hackers a good idea of what you're hosting on your box and could utilize new vulnerabilities as they're exposed. Hackers mostly does not like manual labor but if you've caught their interest they'll give it a more direct effort.
