    Tower cases with 5.25" drive bays top to bottom...

    I have an Antec 1200 case with older horizontal 4 in 1 cages, I have an ATX board with a 16 port RAID controller, the cables that connect to the RAID controller plug in at the end of the card and my 4 in 1 bays hit them if I try and push them in all the way, so I have to leave them out a little which is ok as the server is a second back up server that is powered off most of the time. If you aren't using any HBA's that have cables that plug in at the end of the card, you should be fine.

    SSD only RAID?

    Not sure how you come to the conclusion that an all SSD is more realistic, for who? SSD's beyond 2TB are quite expensive and if I want a storage array greater than 10-20TB, how does using all SSD's work or even become affordable?

    Parity drive, Thinking ahead

    I agree, purchase the largest parity drive your budget will allow, maybe even 10TB, then you are not limited by 4TB and can add anything from 4TB all the way up to 10TB.

    Is Unraid a wise choice for my office?

    I would consider any of the following alternatives: Cloud based sharing A named brand NAS from Qnap or Synology Unraid is fantastic, I love it for home use, would I use it at work no. Why? Several reasons, but the biggest is that support is forum based, and you simply don't want to using something for mission critical data that has only forum based support. You need to be able to pick up the phone and call a support line or start a web chat with a support agent, anyone from your office needs to be able to do this, in case you are ill or on vacation. Putting something like unRAID in your office entrusts it's support to you and you only, not a good idea.

    [Plugin] Linuxserver.io - Unraid Nvidia

    Ok great thank you.

    [Plugin] Linuxserver.io - Unraid Nvidia

    I have a question, can you do this on an existing install of unRAID or does it require a completely new install? There are no CPU limitations with this are there? I understand on windows you have to have a gen 8 CPU, my unRAID server has Xeon CPU's, will this still work?

    Building Storage Server + Media Player

    While you can certainly do this, you could also do something a little different if you have budget. You could look at having the pc run unRAID just for storage of your media and offload Kodi to something else. Lots of devices can run Kodi as it is pretty lightweight, I run Kodi on Nvidia Shield's which is overkill just for Kodi but I use them for other things too. I like this setup because my servers just do storage and the Shield's run Kodi, works well for me.
  8. Do you have a UPS? If not consider getting one, unRAID can shut down your server gracefully in the event of a power outage

    [Support] Linuxserver.io - Medusa

    Having trouble finding the previous version so I can roll back, any help would be appreciated.

    [Support] Linuxserver.io - Medusa

    I just updated to the latest version of Medusa and it seems broken. I have tried rolling back to version 27 but that seems broken too. I just get endless lines of this in the log: self.airdate_offset = int(sql_results[0]['airdate_offset']) KeyError: u'airdate_offset' 2019-03-14 21:10:27 ERROR MAIN :: [918cfe7] There was an error creating the show in /tv/Shrill: Exception generated: u'airdate_offset' Traceback (most recent call last): File "/app/medusa/medusa/__main__.py", line 2122, in load_shows_from_db cur_show = Series(sql_show['indexer'], sql_show['indexer_id']) File "/app/medusa/medusa/tv/series.py", line 245, in __init__ self._load_from_db() File "/app/medusa/medusa/tv/series.py", line 1493, in _load_from_db self.airdate_offset = int(sql_results[0]['airdate_offset']) KeyError: u'airdate_offset' 2019-03-14 21:10:27 ERROR MAIN :: [918cfe7] There was an error creating the show in /tv/Sex Education: Exception generated: u'airdate_offset' Traceback (most recent call last): File "/app/medusa/medusa/__main__.py", line 2122, in load_shows_from_db cur_show = Series(sql_show['indexer'], sql_show['indexer_id']) File "/app/medusa/medusa/tv/series.py", line 245, in __init__ self._load_from_db() File "/app/medusa/medusa/tv/series.py", line 1493, in _load_from_db self.airdate_offset = int(sql_results[0]['airdate_offset']) KeyError: u'airdate_offset' 2019-03-14 21:10:27 ERROR MAIN :: [918cfe7] There was an error creating the show in /tv/The Kids Are Alright: Exception generated: u'airdate_offset'

    While offsite backups are recommended and great, some of us have too much data to afford backing it up offsite using traditional means. I have three copies of my data onsite, and one offsite, so having a backup onsite is not a bad idea either, you can use a spare computer that may be lying around and some drives, that is about all it takes.

    So it looks like Emby 4.0.2 was released today? I am always cautious of upgrading anything to the latest version. First, I ask myself, is anything broken with the version I am using? Second, if so, does the new version fix it. If the answer to #1 is no, then I look to see if there is a compelling reason to upgrade and if not, I wait to see if there are bugs. You sometimes pay the price for being the guinea pig who adopts the latest version and you can wind up doing this at your own peril. I never update my dockers right away, and in the past have done so to have the upgrade go sideways. My advice would be to wait next time and see if others have issues first.

    I am sure users here appreciate you making them aware of the bug so they don't suffer a similar loss of data. We, as a community are simply trying to help by pointing out that backups are something that can save you from situations like this. unRAID has plenty of amazing features that you can choose to implement, I use the recycle bin on all my servers in case I accidentally delete something, it may have helped you but it may not have. If you want some advice on creating a backup strategy I would be more than willing to help you, I am an IT professional in my day job.

    I am sorry to hear about this but it is not an unRAID issue. You should have backups of your data for situations like this, you cannot blame unRAID. Sure it would be nice if unRAID had snapshot capability but you are aware it does not, so you can't rely on it. I have close to 10,000 movies in my collection and I have them on two different servers and backed up to a third that I keep offline. I realize not everyone can afford to to do this, but if your data is important to you, then you have to think about a backup strategy. Perhaps it is also time to look at Plex unless you don't like it, I have been using it for years without issues.
