  1. Seems like my cache is dying - can you please help me plan out what to do? Log is flooded with these messages: BTRFS error (device loop2): parent transid verify failed on 148996096 wanted 1692344 Attached my diagnostics. I'l guessing I need to try and get everything off the cache and reformat it - are there some good steps for follow for that? Thanks
  2. Just wanted to say thanks to @ich777 - I put an old GTX 960 into my Dell R720 and now Plex transcoding is all being done so smoothly (particularly subtitled shows). Amazing instructions, all worked first time. Beautiful work.
  3. Cool thanks, I got it working when I used the literal username in question in /home/*username*/upload
  4. First up thanks @MarkusMcNugen for the efforts. In SFTP my goal is to share a directory from my unraid array with a friend. I create him a user and he can SFTP connect fine, but so far no amount of trial and error has successfully shared the files with him. What do I need to add to the container under Unraid to make this work? Say I wanted him to log in and see the content of my /mnt/users/videos dir? Cheers
  5. Bit late to the party, But I am using the librenms/librenms version of the container from CA. Before starting the librenms container, create a new MariaDB container (I am using the linuxserver/mariadb one). Once that is loaded, use the CLI for that container to build your database, and allow access from another host: CREATE DATABASE librenms CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci; CREATE USER 'librenms'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'librenms'; CREATE USER 'librenms'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'librenms'; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON librenms.* TO 'librenms'@'localhost'; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON librenms.* TO 'librenms'@'%'; FLUSH PRIVILEGES; exit Now, when you configure the LibreNMS container, point the DBhost to be the IP of the container (in my case, the same IP as the unraid box itself, as I'm using bridged networks for the containers). After a couple of minutes you can open the LibreNMS GUI and get cracking.
  6. Thanks @broadcastthebadger - this gives me some hope at 1:40am... I have recently brought my (encrypted) Unraid server across the ocean, and when it came time to boot up I was getting all sorts of kernel panic messages (about sync..). Doing it all from the iDrac terminal made gathering logs tricky, but I thought I would try and recover my config files from the existing USB stick (which had been working well for 2+ years) and go with a new stick.. Several hours later and still no boot - the closest I got to that nice blue syslinux menu was using UEFI, which doesn't seem to work with my Dell R720.. Can you share what settings you used in Rufus to make your bootable stick? Tonight I've tried: - 3 different USB (2, 2, 3) sticks - UEFI/BIOS - Creating the sticks using the Unraid tool on Mac, PC - Creating the stick by hand using Mac, PC, Linux - Booting the stick in another PC (which worked) - Drinking
  7. Hey @A75G - thanks for all your efforts. I have installed your LibreNMS container, and setup a MariaDB on the same host librenms/librenms/librenms all the way down - but it can never connect. The log doesn't give much away - any tips for getting this to work? The IPs/ports etc all match.
  8. Ah well at least the symptom makes sense. Not so sure if the cause does. I could understand a restart or reload... cheers
  9. Bit of a weird issue for me. I started up Dynamix' Wireguard plugin, following the blogpost on Worked perfectly with my Macbook, using the `Remote Tunneled Access` mode. Great. Then I went and added another peer (I wanted to use my phone too). After clicking 'Add peer' and generating the keys, I clicked Apply or whatever and... Lost access. No go at all. Can't even connect back to the server to undo what I did. Is that expected behavior? Note, I only generated new keys for the new peer, so I didn't expect to get locked out. Any suggestions welcomed - and thanks for building such a simple/great system!
  10. I have only seen this DRM message on Linux (Budgie 20.20) using Firefox. Still gives me the heebie jeebies
  11. I admit I don't really know what 'DRM features' in Firefox actually means, but here is this:
  12. Today when I went to use the web interface for Plex, Firefox asked me to enable DRM features. Yuck. Not keen at all. Apparently it's something to do with Plex partnering with Warner Bros. I am increasingly aware that Plex isn't the media streaming solution for me any more - but where can I go? What do you use, if not Plex, and how does it compare? I use Plex mainly on iPad, PS4 and the PC (web) very rarely.
  13. Thanks I am now running a scrub, thanks for the tip. Scrub looks OK
  14. Hi Woke up this morning to no DNS (I run unbound on my Unraid server).. Checked and most of my containers had died. Tried to stop and start, no go. Followed a quick Google and tried to remove and re-generate docker.img, which seems to have given me some grace (all containers deleted from GUI, but I can re-add them easily and the data persists...)... However, it seems the problem is one of my cache drives. It's not showing errors on the GUI, but btrfs commands show errors galore. It's a Dell R720, so I don't think it's a SAS cable as many of the other drives would be affected - possibly the SSD has just carked it - it's nearly 4 years old. I have attached diagnostics from prior to a reboot. I also see a lot of these: The cache is a pool of 2 drives - would I be best to remove /dev/sdi and replace it? Thanks
