    I did post my diagnostics and enhanced syslog but I don’t see anything in there at all telling.  And it’s random, it probably won’t crash overnight at all.  But randomly during the day it will.  I can’t even pin down a thing it’s doing to trigger it.


    don’t have an option to run a remote syslog as it’s kinda remote.  Nor do I even know how to do that.

    I have had the same problem with all builds greater than beta25, and I've been unable to post diagnostics as my system completely freezes.

  2. Thanks for the new beta.   The write-up went right over my head as someone who's not very technical e.g. I can follow the instructions for the GPU Driver instruction section on how to configure the files...but, I don't know why I would do this or when it might be beneficial or not to do so.  What does it potentially allow me to do?  Thanks.


    I'm keen to give this one a go as I'm still stuck on beta25 as the releases before this one, kept causing my machine to hang and lock me out.

    I've had 2 lockups today on v29 which is very rare - had to use power button to shutdown as totally locked out/full crash.  I'm not sure if the diags after boot will shed any light

    I woke up to a unresponsive system this morning.  My Windows 10 VMs were locked, but my pfsense VM I think was still running as I had Wi-Fi connectivity on other devices.  I couldn't connect to unRAID though - even with my laptop via ethernet.  I've had to rollback to beta25 as that's 3 lockups in 24 hours, whereas I had no issues with beta25.


    Diags attached after reboot again, so not sure if they will help - I couldn't previous diags as I had to shutdown with hardware power button.

  4. I have a question please about using the multiple pools.


    I currently have my dockers in my appdata share /mnt/user/appdata using a pool called apps (/mnt/apps/appdata).  I also have another pool called cache (/mnt/cache) that I use for most of my other shares.


    I want to move some of my dockers e.g. /mnt/user/appdata/radarr to the cache pool i.e. from /mnt/apps/appdata/radarr to /mnt/cache/appdata/radarr.  As long as I set the appdata share to cache only so that files never get moved to the array, is this safe? 


    I created a few test folders e.g. /mnt/cache/appdata/test and I can see that it was still visible at /mnt/user/appdata/test even though the appdata share is set to the /mnt/apps pool, so it seems to work i.e. even if a pool isn't setup in the GUI for a share, all files stored still bubble up to /mnt/user/sharename.


    Thanks in advance.


    Edit: realised a bad idea as new files will get added to /mnt/apps/appdata.  I'll try a different way

    A possible solution... (Though I'm not running the Beta) I'm in a very similar boat... I have a gaming VM that has control over my NVIDIA GPU and while I can plug a spare monitor into the integrated Intel GPU I prefer keeping things simple.


    I've assigned a static Address to my Unraid Server and when my pfSense VM fails for any reason I run the following script in Admin mode (WIndows) to temporarily set my laptops IP to a static address as well.


    netsh interface ipv4 set address name="Wi-Fi 2" static

    netsh interface ipv4 set dns name="Wi-Fi 2" static


    Then I run a second script to change back to Dynamic after the router is back up and running:


    netsh interface ipv4 set address name="Wi-Fi 2" source=dhcp


    This quickly lets me diagnose any problems and get up and running asap.


    I did stumble onto a similar workaround, where I set a static IP up on my laptop that I bought a few months ago, in order to access the server.


    I'm loving the new pools and they are a great addition.  It's particularly nice to be able to see the disk activity for drives that were previously UDs.

  6. New beta user.  I've finished making the switch which was time consuming as I've created new pools for my appdata (mainly Plex) and VMs, which meant moving a lot of data around, formating drives etc. 


    It all went fairly smoothly, but there's one new addition that really didn't help me.  I passthrough my primary GPU to a VM AND also run a pfSense VM.  If my array doesn't start, I have to stop it, unplug the USB, undo the VFIO-bind edits so that I have a screen, and then reboot to be able to access the server, as I can't use another computer to access the server because of the VM.


    In 6.9.0 it looks like if there's a unclean shutdown it turns off the disk auto start option - I'm sure this is a new feature.  This means I have to go through the steps above every time which is a pain.  Is it possible to make this optional or to remove as it's a real pain for people with headless servers AND a pfsense VM who can't get into the server over the LAN.

    I'm not seing the repost on the UD thread, so will comment here.


    Dec  8 09:08:12 Highlander kernel: BTRFS info (device sda1): bdev /dev/sdb1 errs: wr 10554074, rd 11326465, flush 304, corrupt 81, gen 1

    Device sdb on this pool dropped out at some point in the past, run a scrub but IMO bad idea to use a pool of USB devices, USB is very prone to disconnects and generally bad at reporting and handling errors.

    yeah, when it works it great but even 3 problems in 4 months is too much.  I've decided to just get a bigger nvme drive so I can ditch the small 2x500GBs.  Luckily I can return one of the SSDs and the other I'll probably just put on eBay together with my old SM961

  8. I had two variants of Disney - Disney (LEGO) and Disney_4C.  When I deleted the original Disney profile, it let me delete the variants and when I re-created Disney I can now delete variants at will.


    For other variants e.g. of Buzz I can't delete them - I guess I'll have to delete and re-create the original Buzz profile to fix the bug to allow me to delete the variants.


  9. I've been running for 10 hours on the 6.6.0 release and I've only seen the problem twice in my logs, so I don't think (i) rclone is the source and (ii) it's not a biggie now whatever it is

    @Waseh I can't find anything on the rcloneorig command - what's the difference between it and 'rclone'?  Is it best to use rcloneorig?  Thanks
