  1. Wow, I could kiss you all. I was 100% ready to write off this data (and that still may need to happen) but after replacing the sata cable disk 5 is showing up and I can see data on it. I'm starting another rebuild so wish me luck. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. I've had sata cables go bad before but I was sure this was 100% my fault (still a true statement) and I had 2 drives on their last leg (again still could be the case but at least now I have some hope). Thank you again and I hope in a day or so I'll have it all rebuilt!
  2. Ok, I ended up just holding down the power button to kill it. Here are the diagnostics. When I opened up the machine drive 5 (the second failing drive) looked like the sata power cable was ajar but I can't be sure if that was from me removing the sata data cable. After boot the drive isn't showing up at all now so I'm shutting it back down to replace the sata data cable but I grabbed diagnostics first. tower-diagnostics-20200401-1257.zip
  3. Ok I tried: root@Tower:~# poweroff -f And got no output/response and the machine is still up (pingable/sshable) a few minutes later. Am I not waiting long enough or is it hung? I can see that 2 instances of "shutdown -h 0 w", 1 instance of "poweroff -f", and 1 instance of "/usr/local/sbin/emhttpd" are all stuck in uninterruptible sleep mode "D" using htop.
  4. Tried that but after 8 minutes it doesn't appear to be shutting down. Normally I would tail the syslog to figure out what the issue was but it's not updating due to it not having any space... root@Tower:~# poweroff Broadcast message from root@Tower (pts/1) (Wed Apr 1 11:52:26 2020): The system is going down for system halt NOW!
  5. Hmm, ok I can't stop the rebuild. When I click to cancel and then confirm it makes a request to /update.htm with the following form data: startState:STARTED file: csrf_token: A202<REMOVED>1BDA43 cmdNoCheck: Cancel but it just hangs ("pending") and never completes. What is the safest way for me to take down this machine or is pulling the power my only option? EDIT: It times out (504) after a while
  6. On it! Thank you guys. I really appreciate the responses while I'm in panic mode, it helps a lot!
  7. Crap, I just looked and /var/log is full so idk if that's what is causing the issue (my /var/log is 2GB in size for reference)
  8. Well I was going to attach them but it's been working on it for 20min now, I'm going to leave the page open but should I expect it to ever finish? Also here is an update on the rebuild process
  9. Let me start of by saying no, I did not do regular parity checks, no I didn't take good inventory of my data to know what I've lost, yes I understand if you don't a backup then that's your own fault, and yes, I am an idiot. Now that that's out of the way. I had a data disk go bad in my array, I got a new drive put in mid-day yesterday and then right before I went to sleep I checked the progress one last time and saw this (first image). I knew I was screwed but couldn't deal with it last night. This morning it looks like this (second image). I'm not going to beg for ways to save the data (I understand it's gone). What I want to do is stem the tide of damage. Should I kill the rebuild and just write off 10TB (old drive was 5TB that I replaced)? How can I do that while saving the remaining data? Again, I know this is my own fault and I've lost a good chunk of data but I would really appreciate any help in saving whatever I can.
  10. I love the peace of mind Unraid gives me with my data. It’s hard to narrow it down to just 1 thing I want to see in 2020 so I won’t: 1. User shares spanning multiple servers (ideally docker-swarm-like capabilities as well) 2. VPN support baked in with a toggle on a per container/VM basis
  11. I would like the ability to toggle on a VPN for a given container or VM. Bonus points for: Optional kill-switch if VPN drops Ability to have multiple containers/vms share the same connection (so 1 client instead of 1 per container/vm) Ability to toggle on the VPN for ALL containers and/or ALL VMs I imagine this would require some VPN/WG config section where you enter in the config for your VPN and name it and then a drop down in the container/vm edit page that lets you choose "No VPN" ,"MY custom VPN 1", etc with a checkbox next to it to kill the internet if the VPN goes down.
  12. I tried different browsers and different devices but the GUI stayed in that odd state. Once I was sure the rebuild was complete (mind you the array was accessible this whole time, it just didn't look like it was via the UI) I rebooted the machine through the web UI and everything came up correctly. That was a scary few days where I wasn't sure if it was working or not but it appears it was all fine and just some UI glitch. Bottom line if your UI looks like my screenshot above then just ride it out until the rebuild is complete then reboot your server.
  13. Just noticed a drive was emulated so I wrote down which drive was bad, stopped the array, shutdown the server, replaced the drive (with a bigger one 5->8TB), turned back on the server. The array started automatically (wasn't expecting that) with the drive marked as missing. I stopped the array and then assigned the new drive to the missing slop and hit "start" on the array. The page refreshed but all the drives still showed as dropdowns (like I could assign them. Picture: https://www.dropbox.com/s/diymtovifemqemb/Screenshot 2019-09-04 17.47.18.png?dl=0) and the only options at the bottom of the page are "Reboot" and "Powerdown". In the bottom status bar it shows: Array Stopped•Parity-Sync / Data-Rebuild 0.1 %•stale configuration (Note it is now up to 0.3% so it IS doing something). I've never seen this before and in the past when I need to rebuild a drive the bottom section is expanded and show %, time, MB/s, MB total rebuilt, etc. I googled around but couldn't find anyone describing what I'm seeing. I have attached my diagnosis. I'm going to leave the server alone but I'm not sure what the stale config error means and if I need to stop the rebuild and do something else first. tower3-diagnostics-20190904-1741.zip
  14. I might be in the vast minority but I can only run desktop servers (i.e. towers not rack-mount). There are a number of reasons for this: sound, power, space, and knowledge (I’ve built computers since I was I was 14 and have a good grasp on that, SAS/backplane/etc is foreign to me and frankly scares me). For all of these reasons I’m currently running 3 UnRaid servers. I have one “main” server where all the heavy lifting happens and then 2 “storage” servers that might have 1-2 containers running on them max. My question is: do you foresee UnRaid as ever supporting “multiple servers acting in coordination”? I’m fine paying for a license for each (and I have 3 pro license) but storage management across the servers is a pain and it would be nice if they could work together a little better. Currently I just use nfs mounts to the main server but I’m almost always running some rsync command to move data off a full drive/server to another one. Also with things like docker swarm or kubernetes I wonder if there is a better option that what I’m currently doing. Thank you for an amazing product!
  15. I bought this adaptor off Amazon to connect to my APC BACK-UPS XS 1300 as it doesn't have a USB-B port on the back but instead an RJ45 data port. Unfortunately UnRaid can't seem to see it. I followed this guide here to determine my settings. My settings are: USB Cable: Smart Custom USB Cable: <blank> UPS type: APCsmart Device: /dev/ttyUSB0 I got the device from following this post to find which tty to use: root@Tower:~# lsusb Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:8001 Intel Corp.

I'm thinking it might be that my cable isn't compatible but I don't want to spend $40 (practically a battery replacement) for this cable unless I know it will work. I have tried just about every combo of dropdown options on that UPS page but I can't get it to connect. Thank you for any help you can provide.
