  1. Would it be easier maybe to go down to single parity. If I decrease from Dual Parity to Single Parity, then I would turn the 14TB parity drive into a 14TB data drive. I would then have open space to migrate out 2 drives physical (I could migrate out a 8TB and a 4TB). Then I'd have room to add the drives back. Downside would be single Parity, but at least I'd never lose parity. If I tried migrating 2 parity drives at once, then I'd lose parity.
  2. I was in need of some extra storage. I snagged 2x new 16 TB drives when they were on sale since they were the same price as the 14TBs. My only problem is that my 2x parity drives are 14TB. I'd like to replace the parity drives with these new ones, and then I'll just use the old parity drives as data drives. Easy. Except, I don't have enough connectors/space for 2x extra drives. I will retire 2 of the older smaller drives in the array to my backup Unraid, so nothing goes unused. However, I will need to get the data off of them. I don't have enough Free Space in the aray to get all the data off those 2x drives.... Sorry, this is all confusing. So can I: Move 2x existing drives to the NetApp4243 extender temporarily (it's an LSI card or clone, I cannot remember which). Physically remove drive from motherboard controlled and install in NetApp. Install new drive into array. Copy data back to the main drives in the array, and then get rid of the NetApp. (It served its time, but it's loud as hell and it was intentionally taken down). Concern: moving drives from existing controller to the NetApp changes the ?identification. Will I lose any data? Since unraid changes the identification of the drive when going from existing motherboard controller onto the netapp, would I be able to shut down array, physically remove drive and change to new lcoation/controller, then reassign the newly identified device to the same array location. In the past using for example the same drive on the motherboard controller "ST4000DM000-1F2168_S3006ZHY - 4 TB" when moved to the NetApp4243 would gets an identification like "000-1F2168_SA_S3006ZHY - 4 TB". Eg. Array Devices/Disk 7 is "Disk 7 ST4000DM000-1F2168_S3006ZHY - 4 TB (sdn)" 1. Stop Array 2. Take Snapshot of all device locations 3. ????? Tools->Preserve Current Assignments->None->Yes 4. Physically move ST4000DM000 to NetApp4243 5. ????? REBOOT in ?? Maintenance Mode (I don't want the array starting yet, but in the past the NetApp drives don't show up until a reboot 6. Reassign newly identified (but same) drive to the previous Device under Array Devices on Main page so I would set "000-1F2168_SA_S3006ZHY - 4 TB" as Disk 7 7. Start up the array 8. This would rebuild the parity which takes around 34 hours right now. I really don't want to rebuild the parity with each step, because when putting in the 2x new parity drives (new 16TB drives in place of old 14tb drives), it will have to rebuild anyway. Stupid questions: moving a drive from Parity to Data, do I have to pre-clear? I frustrated, I'm not sure which step to do first.
  3. Which ports needs to be opened? TCP:25565 or UDP:25565? Any others? Also, I was previously able to use the Minecraft Server Console as instructed via the Minecraft Server Docker FAQ I used this command via putty: But now I get: Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
  4. JorgeB, thanks so much. You've already been a big help to me. I have that other thread in general support going about the MACD land problem. I just re-enabled it yesterday but I don't want to drag this thread into that. Could you give me some tips on back up the cache pool, and reformat it.
  5. Any ideas? Plex was running, so I tried a restart and got an error 403. Thinking Docker image corruption, I tried deleting to rebuild it. But the Docker image wouldn't restart with the "Docker Service failed to start error displayed in the Docker Tab. A look in the Syslog shows "root: ERROR: unable to resize '/var/lib/docker': Read-only file system". Now I've learned to post here before a restart from stupidity in the past. Any help? orcrist-diagnostics-20220307-2310.zipsyslog-
  6. FWIW, this did not clear up the communications problem. Each time the Docker is enable, about 2 minutes later, I lose communication. I can ping from the affect server console within the 192.168.86.x network, but I cannot ping outside. Also, I can confirm that I can ping those same IP addresses if the ENABLE DOCKER is set to NO, or if ENABLE DOCKER set to YES and the DOCKER CUSTOM NETWORK TYPE is set to MACVLAN instead of IPVLAN.
  7. OK, I think I am following. Forgive me as I'm typically a little out of my depth. I've screenshotted my current settings between the respective installations. I've also included the limited DHCP pool settings that my Google Nest Wifi Router will allow. I figured that the DHCP pool of the Nest should NOT include the IPs of the DHCP pool of unraid to avoid conflicts, does this sound correct? So now the 6.10.0-rc2 (Orcrist) has, the 6.9.2 (Grond) has, and the Nest Wifi pool is I think this all sounds correct.
  8. I just looked through and spotted no overlaps. They are on physically different hardware, vs
  9. Editted: Updated to rc3, problem still exists with IPVLAN Title says it. I had a previous post about crashes. A suggestion was that since I was getting macvlan call traces, that I update to 6.10.0-rc2 and change the docker network type to ipvlan instead (SETTINGS->DOCKER->DOCKER CUSTOM NETWORK TYPE->IPVLAN). This did eliminate the previous errors. However, now I have some new issues. I have communication problems. The shares are still accessible. Examples: Fix common problems indicates that I cannot communicate with GitHub, I cannot download blacklist for apps. I cannot update plugins or dockers as they cannot communicate. Now, the interesting part (for me, but I'm pretty dumb). If I go to SETTINGS->DOCKER->ENABLE DOCKER and change to NO, then I can communicate fine. Also, when I switch the ENABLE DOCKER back to YES, I get an amount of time where communication seems fine, can even update the dockers without getting NOT AVAILABLE for a minute or two. Testing this just now, about 2-3 minutes. Any ideas? It's worth noting I do have a second Unraid installation in the same house, and it's unchanged 6.9.2 and still presumably using the macvlan setting for custom networks. No problems on the other system, so I don't think it's a router/hardware issue. orcrist-diagnostics-20220306-1236.zip
  10. Once again, I fear I am out of my depth. However, maybe you can help me to configure WIreguard as I need. I have followed some of the tutorials, and I can connect without issue. But I have some limitations that I think amount to my configuration abilities. My goal is use my personal laptop while at work use Wireguard via my Unraid server. I would like to be able to use my laptop as if I was on my local LAN (my NAT/Router is a GoogleWifi/Nest. I previously had success with OpenVPN-AS docker. But I am less successful after starting with Wireguard. In particular, my local SMB shares, and access to locally hosted sites, such as a different Unraid installation (a different one that is not hosting Wireguard). Of course, also sending all web traffic through my home network as well. For starters, I can successfully connect from my workplace with wireguard both with my cellphone (Android) and my laptop (window11). My router has UDP 51820 forward to the Unraid Server with the Wireguard installation. Perhaps I just don't understand the correct use case of some of the options/setting. From watching a number of videos and the info graphic, I think I am correctly setting PEER TYPE OF ACCESS to "remote tunneled access". My internal network is using 192.168.86.x if that helps. As a for instance, when I am connect on my laptop from work, I cannot see any of my SMB network shares. Also, my Plex server (running on the same machine as Wireguard) seems to be very flaky. Sometimes working, sometimes not. I cannot make a secure connection to my PlexServer without Wireguard. Sorry if I am babbling. Here are some pics of the Wireguard settings.
  11. Could someone help me with configuration. My goal is have my personal laptop use Wireguard via my Unraid server and and use a local IP address within my home network. Can I pull a local address within my house with this? My current configuration connects successfully. I've follow a number of the easy write ups that I've seen between here and web searches. Perhaps I just don't understand the correct use case of this. I internal network is using 192.168.86.x if that helps
  12. Maybe, I read through it and not sire what I can do about it. New logs after another crash syslog.ziporcrist-diagnostics-20220213-2135.zip
  13. I went to bed last night around 10pm and a preclear was running and due to finish on a new drive this AM. When I checked this AM, the GUI had crashed. Putty didn't work. The keyboard and monitor directly attached to the system didn't do anything. Lights were on. Nobody home. I ended up doing a hard reset and I'm running ANOTHER parity check, which is getting annoying. I had syslog mirroring to flash, so I'll attach that and the diagnostics. Obviously I couldn't get the diagnostics until I reset the server. Any help is appreciated. I notice the logs stop around 5:20am, and then no new entries until I hard reset the system after work around 19:25. orcrist-diagnostics-20220209-2005.zip orcrist-syslog-20220210-0304.zip
  14. OK, the parity run finished. However 1/2 parity drives is listed as disabled. Again, I'm not sure if the original parity rebuild/array shrink completed since the GUI crashed while the rebuild was happening.orcrist-diagnostics-20220206-1137.zip What should I try next?
  15. I was following the first instruction set The "Remove Drives Then Rebuild Parity" Method Everything seemed to be successful, and it initiated the rebuild parity. This looked fin after the first 12 hours or so. However, after I got home from work, the webgui was non-functional. I could still get into the shares, and still putty into the server. I couldn't get the diagnostics to post. I used the "/sbin/reboot" command from Putty. This certainly restarted everything and the GUI came back up. The server log was disable at that time, I've re-enabled it now and grabbed the diagnostics if helpful. When I restarted, all of the shares were not started. I checked that all the drives were listed correctly, and hit start. The parity drives are listed as "Parity - Invalid" and "Parity 2 - Disabled" The parity rebuild automatically restarted. I cannot tell if the initial parity build completed. Any ideas what to do next? Should I let this new parity rebuild go until the end? Incidentally, when I removed the drives from the array, I didn't touch either of the parity drives. orcrist-diagnostics-20220204-2051.zip
