  1. Thanks very much for the info. I have re-formatted the cache drive and can remove all is normal again.
  2. Hi I have an issue that has just popped up. Fix common problems is reporting "Unable to write to cache" On my Monitor it is saying " BTRFS: error (device sdb1) in btrfs_run_delayed_refs:2150: errno=-5 IO failure. Not sure what to do. I have rebooted and get the same issue. I have put the cache driver in another SATA port but still have the issue. Docker tab reports "Docker Service failed to start." If someone could point me in the right direction I would be much grateful, my tower is like a fish out of water at the moment. Regards tower-diagnostics-20220827-0831.zip
  3. Thanks for the heads up, I thought that may be the case. But rebuilding the parity aside, my plan should work yes?
  4. I have a question in regards a new config. I currently have a 6TB drive on disk 2 which I need to use for another project. I had a smaller driver that I wasnt using so was going to replace disk 2 from a 6TB to a 4TB driver. As we know this will not work as you cant go smaller. So the idea I have is temporarily add the 4TB drive to the array and copy everything from disk 2 to disk 8. So now my question is if I create a new config and start by reducing the drives used by one and then remove the 6TB and assign the 4TB to disk 2 the server shouldnt know any different? Yes? I will point out that I want to assign the 4TB to disk 2 because I have alot of dockers that point to disk 2 and I think this is easier that reconfigure every docker. Regards
  5. That worked perfectly. Thanks very much. When I first tried it I thought I may have gotten the command wrong so I did mkfs.xfs -m crc=1,finobt=1 -f /dev/sdg as that is at the end of the description on that drive. It did it thing ok and didnt give me any errors, obviously it didnt work, however what damage if any would I have done by using sdg instead of the correct command? Regards
  6. Good news is I didn't get any errors this time. So thanks very much for that. The down side is the size used didn't change. 41.9GB for a 8TB drive before and 41.9GB after I followed the instructions.
  7. Thanks very much, I’ll give it a go when I get home. Cheers
  8. Sorry to dig up an old post but does "mkfs.xfs -m crc=1,finobt=1 -f /dev/mdX" still work? I used it once before with no problems but went to use it again with the following command : mkfs.xfs -m crc=1,finobt=1 -f /dev/mdg G being the disk # and it came back with an error Error accessing specified device /dev/mdg. Or should I be using the actual driver number as in /dev/md7. Been a long time since I used this command so I can remember. Regards
  9. Afternoon all, I stupidly pressed "Renew" in management Access, Now its saying " DNS Propagation is PENDING". Its been saying that for a while. Is there something wrong or is this just a sit and wait thing. Was working fine prior to me pressing renew. Regards tower-diagnostics-20220520-1557.zip
  10. Im not sure if this relates to the few posts above me but all of a sudden Radarr is spitting out the attached error. Can someone please provide a little bit of help. Regards New Text Document.txt
  11. I’ll give that a go when I get home. Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I noticed that my vm went off line and Pulseway is telling me my unraid server is off line as well. While I am currently not home this is an issue I have had before which ends with me having to do a hard reset which results in a unclean shutdown. SSH isn’t an option due to the system showing as off line. There is nothing wrong with the internet connection as well. Is the a way to shut down the system cleanly from the boot screen?

  13. Just a lot of containers. And I probably didn’t make the initial size big enough As I think it’s only 20 gig
  14. Im starting to run low on space in my docker image, and while Im sure it has been covered before I cant seem to find it. How would I go about increasing the size of my docker image? Thanks in advance.
  15. I have added two new drives to my array ( Disk 6 & 7 ). Once the drives have been formatted they seem to have a larger than usual amount of space used up. The drivers are completely empty. Previously when I added a new drive to the array it would take up just over 4GB on a 4TB drive. Is this normal or have I done something wrong?
