  1. access is no problem. I changed the name from unraid to server, and can access all shares with either \\server\media or \\\media If I map a network drive, everythings works too My issue is not being able to see the server in network locations. If you open up windows/file explorer, in the left hand pane there is a section called Network. When I click on it I can see all the machines on my network, but unraid (or linux machines in general) do not show up here. There are some shares that I don't want to map as theyre not used that often, and I don't want to type in the addre
  2. I couldnt find anything on the forum regarding motherboard sound If I were to purchase a gpu with a hdmi output, and I pass that through to the VM, will I automatically get sound via hdmi on the graphics card, without having to explicitly pass through a separate sound card?
  3. yeah that didnt fix the issue for me. Maybe our problems are slightly different as I don't see how a host file edit would cause the server to show up in network locations
  4. webgui seems to work but I can't seem to access delugevpn using the GTK client on windows During delugevpn setup, I made sure to set lan_range to (ip of my desktop machine) so I can access the server. I edited the deluge/auth file and added user:pass:10 on a new line Tried to connect to the server, on port 58846, using the user and pass I setup in deluge/auth, however the circle is red and won't let me connect Am I missing a step somewhere?
  5. I'm planning on running steamOS in a VM, but I don't have a pcie graphics or sound card, both are on either the cpu or the motherboard I tried setting up a VM to pass both through but no options show up when setting it up Does passthrough not allow for onboard video/sound? My motherboard: asus h87i-plus cpu: intel pentium g3220 Eventually I'm planning on purchasing an nvidia pcie graphics card, which I should be able to pass through, but planning on still using onboard sound. If sound doesn't work at this stage, I guess it wouldn't work in the future either?
  6. But surely this wouldn't happen if 1) no top level directories on any of the disks have the same name and 2) each share is explicitly told to use only a single disk? Right now, I have 'enable disk shares' set to No, so even if I remove a disk, it shouldn't turn into a disk share anyway right? In other words, the files would not be visible for me to copy them to another location Please correct me if I'm wrong because that sounds like a big bug, but with my intended setup I don't believe I'd ever run into this situation? For example: Disk 1 contains a folder 'Media', then set
  7. ah I see. Looking at the problem a different way then - is it possible to check on windows machines whether they are the local master, and force them not to be?
  8. Looking for some advice on a recommended way to set up my server, particularly as it pertains to docker setup. I have: - a 64gb SSD as cache - 3TB parity - 3TB data drive for my media - 3TB data drive for backups and other random things I'm planning on running the following: - plex - mariadb - couch potato - sonarr - deluge + openvpn - kodi/xbmc - steam os So, with docker, I understand there is a docker image file that needs to go somewhere, and an appdata directory? I have a few questions: 1. I read in the docks that its typical to put the docker image o
  9. Ill keep an eye on that thread. I seem to remember I had the same problem when I set it up originally as a debian server, and then a ubuntu server. Nothing seems to play nice with windows
  10. how does one set a router as local master? I couldnt find the option for my AC68u I thought unraid sets itself as the local master by default? That's the way its set during my first install anyway and I appear to have a similar problem as OP
  11. I have set up a user share on unraid, with the correct user privileges, but I cannot see the server in windows 10. When I go to file explorer > Network, the server does not show up there. However, if I directly use the ip/hostname (\\ I can access the shares OK How does one set a share to be browseable in windows?
  12. sounds easy, thanks! testing out the trial version now...
  13. My understanding of disk shares is that the contents of an entire disk gets shared out to the network, while a user share is a specific directory that gets shared (but can be spread out amongst multiple disks) I want to set up user shares (as I don't want entire disks to be shared), but is it possible to force a user share to store data on only one specific disk? I ask because I want to keep all of my media on one hard drive, backups on another, so that if I needed to pull a drive from the machine I know exactly whats on there and that it contains everything I need. I dont want to se
  14. By look at the same data I assume you mean if you have a share set up, you can configure dockers to see those shares? What happens in the case of mariaDB, where other dockers need to be able to see the data (database) within the mariaDB docker?
  15. I currently have the setup on a raspberry pi, but I also have scripts that auto restart deluge/openvpn if they ever go down. How does one set things like crons and execute scripts within docker containers to achieve this? Because I imagine the config folder for docker containers only contain configs directly related to deluge/openvpn in this case, and not crons/scripts
  16. I am tempted by the possibility of switching over to unraid, but I'm having some difficulty in understanding Docker. I have 2 situations that I'm unclear about: 1. I want to run mariaDB in one container, Kodi in another, and nginx in yet another. I want nginx and kodi to both be able to access mariaDB - how easy would this be to set up? My understanding is that docker containers are isolated from one another, so is it relatively simple to get one container to talk to another? I guess an extension of this question would be, do docker containers get their own internal IP? If so, I imagine I
