  1. I found this firmware - https://www.broadcom.com/products/storage/host-bus-adapters/sas-9207-8e#tab-archive-drivers3-abc i assume lsi was bought by broadcom? Also if anyone happens to know how to install from unraid command prompt or best way to install the firmware.. I also saw bios updates as well for the card, not sure that i would need those or what they are versus a firmware update.
  2. I am attaching 2 logs, one from yesterday when i first noticed read errors and one from this morning after a reboot yesterday. Only 1 disk had read errors in common, the rest were not on the same disks between last night and tonights logs - look 3/17/19 and 3/18/19 at approximately 00:33 tower-diagnostics-20190317-2136.zip tower-diagnostics-20190318-0733.zip

    [Support] Linuxserver.io - Sonarr

    I am curious, i have been using Binhex-Sonarr and it hasn't been updated in a long time... Has this version been getting updated lately?

    [Solved] - Question - how to see signatures in forums?

    Awesome, i really appreciate it! This will help a lot.
  5. I can't seem to find how to see a users signature. I saw some reference to turning on forum signatures in the forums. I am sure this is an easy one and i'm missing something obvious.
  6. I am running an lsi 9207-8e card with 2 cables plugged into 2 of the following Chassis's: https://www.servethehome.com/sgi-rackable-3u-16-bay-se3016-sas-expander-chassis-forum-deal/ What i am looking for is something rackmount style that can handle up to 30 drives, less is ok. A decent power supply included. I normally just run cable from a pcie express card so i can switch machines easily but leave all the drives in the chassis (all but the ssd cache). It doesn't have to be quiet. What i am looking for is something with faster throughput but all the simplicity of what i have. Quicker parity checks and data rebuilds, 128 tb are 1 day 7 hours parity check, and i have seen up to a week for rebuilding 2 drives at the same time. Used is probably best since it should come with most everything and be cheaper. Price range - reasonable.. I don't mind spending some money. $200-$1000 price range. I do have quite a few 8tb seagate archive drives which i am sure are a big factor in my speeds, but i would consider starting a new server with WD white 8tb drives shucked from easystores. I am pretty sure i don't want a tall tower with a bunch of 3x5 drive bay expanders in it. Also i have a lot of experience building PC's but not a ton of experience with servers. This would be running plex, sabnzbd,radarr,sonarr, maybe deluge. Any suggestions or examples on ebay of proven/often used large drive array hardware is appreciated. If there is something that comes with the mobo/cpu/ram etc it isn't completely out of the question.

    Looking at eBay Supermicro - need recommendations please.

    Did you end up getting this? is it working ok? I am shopping around for something similar to upgrade my server.
  8. I first tried changing the file as johnnieblack suggested in the thread i posted above, that didn't work. After that i tried creating a new bootable usb stick and copying config files over from backup. That did work. As far as i can tell everything is working ok. I will mark this topic solved but am left curious what might have caused this failure.
  9. See attached screenshots. One is how it booted first time after shutdown and the next is the 2nd boot. I am not sure how much this will apply? Also i happened to download diagnostics prior to the reboot, on the off chance that there are clues in it. I just made a backup of my usb stick onto my windows machine and i think i have it set to backup on unraid. Also i tried booting without my external data drives, just the usb stick and the ssd are in the tower. No luck yet. Also i tried safe mode and it got same thing, i will try booting usb on a different computer next. tower-diagnostics-20190221-1347.zip ts.

    Global Share Setting to exclude one disk question

    Ok, sounds like i should move the files off the drive then exclude it, or just move whatever gets moved back later. Thanks for the clarification!

    Global Share Setting to exclude one disk question

    Yes, but be aware that split settings override include/exclude settings. Ok, it would potential split some files in folder, but not put them on the excluded drive, right?

    Global Share Setting to exclude one disk question

    This would be just to keep the disk almost empty until i planned on following these instructions in the future, otherwise the mover script will probably put more files on it - https://wiki.unraid.net/Shrink_array#For_unRAID_v6.2_and_later This first step is a little confusing to me - "Make sure that the drive you are removing has been removed from any inclusions or exclusions for all shares, including in the global share settings.." The way i read it, when i am actually ready to remove the drive this step would mean, global share settings are no exclusions, and drive #4 (the drive) would be removed from all inclusions. With individual shares drive 4 should be removed from each share's inclusions, but exclusions would stay at none. I would have thought that global share settings alone would do it.
  13. If i set the global share settings to exclude one disk of the array will the following happen. No further writes will be written to that disk until i change it back to exclude none. In particular mover script, because i don't see a lot of other ways it would start filling up under normal circumstances. Is there any danger to leaving a disk excluded for a week or two. Purpose is to pull the mostly empty disk in a shrink array without losing parity sometime in the next few weeks.. (i cleared the data, but don't want more to fill up before i have time to remove the disk)

    [Support] binhex - Sonarr

    It looks like i am having problems with sonarr importing files from drone factory folder. When episodes are missing i download them elsewhere and import them via drone factory folder. About a week or so ago, i ran fix docker permissions on my server and i assume that may have caused the problem. Expecting that this might be caused by folder permissions i set the drone folder to chmod -R 0777 and when that didn't work i set it in sonarr settings "Permissions" to file chmod mask 0777 and folder chmod mask 0777. Nothing that i have tried has fixed it, is it a problem in the destination directory? sabnzbd downloads appear to be processing correctly as far as i can tell. Or - this is happening to others as well?? - https://github.com/Sonarr/Sonarr/issues/2929 This is the error i am getting.

    [Plug-In] unBALANCE

    Thanks for taking the time to comment and try and help! - At this point i am running a server with 22 8tb mostly seagate archive drives. Stuff is really slow when it involves writes. I need to look into getting better hardware also because i have a bottleneck in my backplate multiplier (if that is the right term). Need to find something on ebay that will keep my drives cool and has a bit more modern bandwidth for the drives to box. Parity check takes about 29 hours, a rebuild takes about 7 days. I am going to post a question once i find the appropriate forum for suggestions on what to buy on ebay.
