  1. Shouldn't the WebUI port be 30000 vs: http://[IP]:5050/files/
  2. I am still having the infinite loading/redirect mentioned previously: I've done the `unraid-api stop` as suggested which got it to stop.
  3. Literally after I posted this, I found the "Replace" key link in another place in the Purchase flow... it seems to have worked as Unraid is now reporting a valid Pro keyfile and let me start the array. However, I now in a weird situation where I cannot login to the unraid webui. I successfully login but then the webUI keeps reporting I"m not signed in. I see my username flash for a moment in the top right corner of the WebUI, then it goes back to "Sign In". I repeat it over and over again with no luck. Found the issue. Bug in My Servers plugin:
  4. I'm tearing my hair out trying to figure out how to get my unraid server up and running. I just replaced my motherboard, CPU and changed the USB key in the process since I was having some issues with previous one. I downloaded a USB key backup zip using the webUI, then restored it to the new USB key using the Unraid USB Creator. Booted my server and everything booted fine, but in the WebUI, it's saying there is a keyfile error. Everything I'm reading indicates I should be able to self-service this and get it going by seeing a "Replace" option in the WebUI but I'm not seeing it (see attached screenshot). July 2020, I did a key upgrade from Plus to Pro to get a higher device limit. But I've never replaced my key in the past 12 month so shouldn't be hitting that common issue I read about. On my old USB key, I had both a Plus.key and a Pro.key. Given I only needed Pro, I've tried deleting first the Plus.key, then both key files. No luck. I then tried deleting both key files, and reinstalling my Pro key from the original install URL given to me in my purchase email. I see a Pro.key on the flash drive but still same error. I've contacted Unraid Support about an hour ago, but I'd really like to get my server up and running tonight. Is there any tips anyone can provide or am I out of luck until they reply?
  5. Update: This problem was unrelated to MyServers plugin, this was just a symptom. My nginx was having issues and filling my logs, so I did a "/etc/rc.d/rc.nginx restart" and it seemed to resolve it thanks to this post: ----- I'm having tons of issues with accessing my WebGUI.. I'm not sure if it's related to the MyServers plugin or not but I'm seeing this: In console I'm seeing this: The WebUI just shows a perpetual loader: I did an "unraid-api restart" and got this: Unfortunately no change. In console I'm seeing this still:
  6. My new motherboard is this: Asus Prime H470 Plus CSM I'm pretty sure on my current Supermicro X10SLM-F, I'm using Legacy boot and not UEFI. I looked up manual of my new motherboard, and it says the following: "The new ASUS UEFI BIOS is a Unified Extensible Interface that complies with UEFI architecture, offering a user-friendly interface that goes beyond the traditional keyboard-only BIOS controls to enable a more flexible and convenient mouse input. You can easily navigate the new UEFI BIOS with the same smoothness as your operating system. The term "BIOS" in this user manual refers to "UEFI BIOS" unless otherwise specified." If new mobo doesn't support legacy bios, am I hosed?
  7. I have a server running unraid but am replacing the motherboard, CPU and ram. Reusing all existing components including drives and the LSI extension card. Is this just a matter of shutting down, installing new hardware and rebooting? Will unraid handle this all seamlessly? (If it matters, I’m switching from a Xeon E3 CPU and Supermicro motherboard to a Asus LGA1200 and Intel Core i5 10th Gen CPU)
  8. I'm in middle of researching upgrades and found this thread. Wanted to check in now 6+ months later with unraid upgrades amuck to see if this now works without hoop jumping.
  9. My Unraid server has evolved over time and my requirements don't fully apply anymore when I originally built it. At that time, I didn't have a GPU nor did I have a LSI RAID card. So I looked for a CPU with a built in GPU and a motherboard with a ton of SATA connectors since my Rosewill case has support for quite a few drives. 4 years ago, it was hard to find a motherboard that fit all the requirements. Lastly, I wanted IPMI support for remote administration. I ended up with: Motherboard: Supermicro X10SLM-F motherboard CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1246 v3 3.50GHz RAM: Crucial 32GB ECC RAM (4 x 8GB, PC3-12800) Since that build, I've added: LSI 9201-8i RAID card that was flashed to IT mode. I'm running 8 drives off of it, and the other 4 drives directly connected to my motherboard. NVIDIA Quadro P2000 GPU primarily for plex hardware acceleration I've been plagued with issues lately with bios chip problems on this motherboard. I've swapped the chip and while it runs fine, if I reboot, I have a 50% chance something is messed up and I have to jump through hoops to reset the bios (by shorter 2 pins on the motherboard), etc. It's a total pain. I looked to replace the motherboard with exactly the same one, but then it's like $300 due to it being older and shorter in supply. I'm hesitant to just buy another bios chip because I think there is something else wrong. Rather than mess with this still, I just want to fix it and upgrade at the same time to get more current with hardware. I'd love recommendations on what to look at. My usage is relatively light: Plex server, serving both local viewers and remote 2 VMs -- one for Home Assistant for all the automation in my house, and one Win10 that I use for a few random things when i need to run windows app NAS file storage for plex, photos, sync'ing google drive etc I run about 15 different dockers for a variety of things such as MQTT server, Radarr, Sonarr, nzbget Requirements: Replace both CPU and Motherboard Motherboard RAM support: While I'm not in a business environment, I figure ECC RAM isn't a bad thing to have, so would like to continue to use my RAM unless for some reason my ECC RAM isn't fast enough or something with changing requirements. So if I need to replace RAM I will, and looking for suggestions if I should not use ECC for some reason Motherboard size: My case will support up to E-ATX, so I'm good with basically any size Motherboard slots: Need at least one PCIe 3.0 x16 slot (for my Nvidia P2000) and one PCIe x8 slot (for my LSI). Motherboard SATA: At least 4 SATA connectors, but the more the better. IPMI support preferred but not a deal breaker if missing Gigabit LAN Built in USB port to plug small USB key into it for Unraid boot drive (I'm not sure what this port is exactly called but I'm sure all of you know what I mean). My first debate is whether to continue on the Xeon or go with the non-Xeon platform. In fact, should I just look at AMD now? I keep reading rave things about their latest CPUs.
  10. In my example where my setup is this: unraid server has IP of VM has IP of When connected via wireguard my unraid server is If i make the change to "Remote access to LAN", what is the IP of the VM? Is it just addressed with still and counts on no network conflict?
  11. I have wireguard setup with "Remote access to server" so my laptop can access my unraid server. I'm trying to understand how to access a VM that's running on unraid, but has it's own IP. For example, my unraid server has IP of and my VM has IP of For my wireguard tunnel and client setup, my unraid server then is accessible via How do I access the VM? Do I need to have it also connect as it's own Wireguard client? I'm confused because when I read the first post it talks about VMs being accessible but I'm not sure how that works exactly becuase how can my laptop (when I'm away from my LAN and connected via Wireguard) be able to access the VM without an addressable IP?
  12. I'm getting same error "Unable to connect to". I don't see anythign obviously wrong anywhere in my firewall.
  13. I noticed this entry come up occasionally in my syslog and wondering if it's anything to worry about. I'm not totally sure what it's indicating. The unraid system is not informing me of any SMART errors or anything on that drive which is in my 2 drive cache pool.

  14. I have a working Windows 10 VM that I've been running for months. I noticed a different option for the "network model" in VM options where I now see both "virtio" and "virtio-net" options. I was using "virtio". I wanted to experiment if this would help network perf by trying "virtio-net" but if I make that change the VM cannot start. My logs show this error: 2021-04-07T17:59:45.810300Z qemu-system-x86_64: -device pcie-pci-bridge,id=pci.6,bus=pci.1,addr=0x0: Bus 'pci.1' not found Any ideas what's going on?
  15. I’m having weird behavior when trying to update this. When I start the update process, My SMx1500 powers off, then back on. The display says something about firmware being updated for a few seconds then it powers off immediately. My windows laptop app is showing the progress at 7% with no additional progress even after waiting 5 mins. UPS still isn’t turning on.
  16. I answered my own question. The answer is Yes
  17. When you update the firmware on an APC UPS, I’ve got an SMT 1500 model, does it cut power to all connected devices at any point? Or is power continuous?
  18. Do you by any chance have an ad blocker installed? If so make sure you disable it
  19. Somewhat related to this thread since this is all about APC SmartUPS and Unraid Anyone figured out how to update the firmware from command line without connecting the UPS to a windows box? I don't have a windows PC in my house at all. I've tried to pass through the device connected to my mac into a windows VM, but it's not working. The APC Firmware updater doesn't see the device.
  20. For those using AirConnect container: Is there a way to change the config so that I can disable some speakers? For example, i'm having some duplicates appear for my sonos speakers that support AirPlay already. Reading the AirConnect github docs, there is a mention of a config.xml file that's created but I don't see any config path set in the docker container so am assuming the file is within the docker container itself which means it's blown away each upgrade. Also, I have no idea where this file is within the container when i'm exploring via console
  21. I used to use nvidia unraid to get hardware transcoding in plex container, but now that is broken due to changes in the nvidia unraid plugin support since it's deprecated and I am waiting on Unraid 6.9 which will have the drivers baked in. However, I'm on Unraid 6.8.3 right now, so now sure if i can get nvidia gpu acceleration working in Tdarr? I tried to run one plugin that uses NVENC and get the error: Cannot load Sorry if this is a stupid question, but do I need to get the drivers supported into unraid to get this working (so Unraid 6.9)? Or is there a way around this in the interim? In the docker config for Tdarr, i have this extra param specified: --runtime=nvidia
  22. I just became a patreon supporter. How do I install the pro_latest version in unraid when using the tdarr_aio version?
  23. I have a bunch of custom scripts on the flash drive through the User Scripts plugin that I'd like to backup on a regular, versioned, basis. Wondering what the best way is? I don't mind putting it on the array vs somewhere remote, but wondering what suggestions people had before I roll my own thing with rsync or something else like the following. I don't have to backup much, and would prefer a UI to do it.
