  1. Thanks - does the name matter or is that just a non-functional label? So I can just set the name to QuickSync and the value to "/dev/dri" and the description to whatever...
  2. Thanks, that worked. What is the proper syntax for the device setting to be able to use QuickSync?
  3. Bump - @Djoss or anyone else have a suggestion on the questions in the previous post?
  4. I am getting a cannot read or write the directory so I must have misspecified the output directory. Here is the error message? Here is what I have: What should I have here? How do I add the option to allow Intel QuickSync? In the Github page it talks about /dev/dri setting. I tried the add new device and I get this dialog box. What do I add for these parameters? Do I add
  5. If you want to risk it, can't you just upgrade log4j in the docker? Others did that to upgrade to 2.15 from earlier versions in old Unifi controller versions that will never get an upgraded log4j.
  6. It also looks like the Parity Check Tuning Plugin replaces the scheduler Plugin (or the core unRAID Scheduler function - I can't remember if I had to install this separately) as when I go to Settings - Scheduler I see the Parity Check Tuning Plugin. Is that correct?
  7. One further question on this - do you have to worry about conflicts with the CA backup plugin or are the plugins smart enough to not run at the same time, and/or does it not matter if they are running at the same time.
  8. Thanks - I did not know that you can do it in batches but that should solve the issue.
  9. I have just built a new server with an 8TB parity drive, and data drives of: 1x8TB, 2x4TB. A parity check in this system seems to take from 18-24hrs. I have an old system with a 4TB drive and parity checks on that system take about 12 hours so around 24 hours seems reasonable. But while the parity check is running I experience significantly degraded performance. Here is one example - when I use SageTV to play back video files the playback can be herky jerky at times. When I try to skip forward over commercials it takes the system several seconds to catch back up. If I pause the parity check then these problems completely go away. Is that expected performance? Or do I have something wrong on my system?
  10. I have now upgraded my system from 5.14 to 6.55 which completes my upgrade path of 5.12>5.14>6.55. It took a few minutes for my system to come online as it appeared that it had to re-adopt my devices, or do some other setting up the first time they ran in 6.55. I still have EOLed UAPs in my system and they appear to be fully functional and configurable in 6.55, which is not supposed to be the case with Controller versions released after March 1, 2021. This was what other had also noticed and pointed out in this thread.
  11. What is required to move my Unifi Controller to a new unRAID server. My plan was the following: Upgrade old server to 6.5.55 Save backup of controller info on old server. Install docker on new server using controller version 6.5.55 Restore backup from unifi controller from old server onto new server Does that make sense? Am I missing anything? Will I have to adopt the devices on the new system? Or do anything else like a set inform? My old server uses the bridge network type but it was set up a long time ago. I now like using the br0 network and giving dockers that use a bunch of ports, like the Unifi Controller, their own IP address. Is there any issue with using the br0 network type with this docker?
  12. I upgraded them all before doing this 5.12>5.14 upgrade and it isn't showing any updates available for those devices so presumably I am at the final firmware version for those UAPs which is My newer devices can go up to 5.43.something.
  13. I am on my way to 6.5.55. Just upgraded from 5.12.72 to 5.14.23. Everything looks good. My old UAPs now have an EOL indication beside them (see below) - this was not present in 5.12. I will let it run for a bit and then upgrade to 6.55.
  14. @nia How do you find 6.5.55? Any issues? Or is it too soon to tell
  15. I only used a different name as I was following a SpaceInvader One video and he set up multiple cache pools on multiple cache drives. I may add a second cache drive as well. Would you get better performance if you had dockers and appdata on one NVME drive, and VMs on a different NVME drive?
