  1. By logs folder do you mean /var/log? That doesn't appear to have older logs. Thanks for the tip on the Tips and Tweaks - I have installed that. Where do you acess the archived logs? I don't see anything in the plugin to access them and I don't see a mention of this capability in the Tips and Tweaks wiki. My system did not do a parity check so I guess I had a clean shutdown. So now I will have to do a shutdown and go and change the BIOS setting so that it powers up when power is restored.
  2. Are there any plugins that would write the log to a hard drive during system shutdown? Surely I am not the only one who would want to see logs from prior sessions - wouldn't this be very useful to document problem with one's system? My unRAID server runs SageTV media server which feeds SageTV extenders at every TV so the family may not be able to watch TV until I am home and able to check things our. They might have to, horror of horrors, watch Live TV. I am not sure my kids even understand what Live TV is.
  3. My unRAID system is plugged into a UPS and has the UPS driver installed and working. I had about a 3 hour power outage today as we had a wicked wind storm here in Toronto. I think my UPS caused the system to shut down nicely, but how do I access the logs to see this as my current log just shows history back to the power up. My system did not automatically power back on. Do I need to go into the BIOS/UEFI and change the option so that on AC power restore that the system turns on? I am not sure but I am guessing that it is set to "revert to last state".
  4. I think I am going to need more idiot-proof instructions. I have only ever built a VM using the unRAID GUI. Where do I even enter the command(s) shown in post 1? In an ssh session in my unRAID server? What directory do you put the IMG file in?
  5. Ok thanks Bob. I will give that a try when I have a moment.
  6. I am trying to create a Chrome OS VM- where did you get the ISO for Chrome OS.
  7. Where did you get the ISO image?
  8. The ubuntu-xrdp docker - yes it works now. But I don't know what I did to make it work.
  9. Well you can use a hosts file to map IP addresses but you can't use it to map ports. And I find it easier to keep track of what IP addresses are currently in use as I use fing to manage my LAN. It can get a little tricky in unRAID to keep track of what ports have been used as the Show used ports (or whatever it is called) in the docker creation screen does not necessarily show all of the ports used.
  10. Maybe I am looking at this all wrong but I really liked the feature in 6.4 (which I believe you are responsible for - thank you!) that let's you use a different IP for each docker. The reason I liked this is that it gets confusing to keep track of all sorts of different ports and many of the dockers use variations on port 80 - like 8000, 8080, 6080, 8888, etc. I thought it would be great to be able to keep the web UI port on all dockers standard at port 80 but change the IP to something else on the subnet. But I lose this advantage and arguably things are worse when I have to remember both an IP and a port. I guess the one slight advantage to using separate IPs is that I don't have to worry about port conflicts. So then what advantage is there in using the br0 network type and a separate IP for each docker?
  11. True, when going through the unRIAD GUI, but there are times when I may want to go directly to the docker's web URL and/or need to remember ports for doing stuff like port forwarding.
  12. But I don't thing that changing the external port does anything when you use a network type of br0, does it?
  13. The reason to bother is that it is simpler to forget about ports all together which you can do when a docker uses the default port of 80 for its web UI. If I create a docker and give it an IP of then I just need to type that address in a browser bar to get to it. I don't have to worry about a port. And if I use an entry in a hosts file (or whatever) then I can even use something like "sickrage" as my URL. But I can't do that when the docker insists on using port 6881 or whatever.
  14. Since we can now give dockers there own IP I want to do this and use the standard port 80 for web UIs. But with many dockers even if you change the network type to br0 and set an IP address you still can't change the docker's internal IP port so it can still use a funky port like 5800 (filebot), 8188 (sickrage), etc. Other dockers that use port 80 include apache, pihole, rutorrent. I understand why this was the case in the "old" world where you generally used the same IP for all dockers, but does this still have to be the case in the new world where we can have one docker per IP address?
  15. Ok, it is now downloading the .torrent files to my /appdata/sickrage folder. However sickrage is complaining that it is 14 commits behind and I just upgraded the docker about a day ago. Is this usual?
  16. Sickrage on any platform doesn't download anything. It tells another app (nzbget, deluge etc) to do the actual down load. All those apps are available in the apps tab Ok thanks - I use the linuxserver rutorrent docker. Is there a doc that describes how to configure that download method.
  17. No you don't have to install anything else. You have a configuration issue with your ports. I have it set up in a bit of a non-standard way but you can the way that I do it. Change network type to br0. Then you will have to set an IP address to an unused IP on your LAN and you may want to set it to an address that is outside of your DHCP range. I use Then you can keep the port at 80 and it should work. But make sure that the IP address that you use is on the subnet that you are using for your LAN - this is usually 192.168.0.X or 192.168.1.X
  18. Newbie question as I am new to Sickrage. I have set up some shows and a few of them say "Snatched" but they don't appear to be downloaded. How does Sickrage download shows on unRAID? Does it have a built in torrent client? Do you have to do something to configure that? I have rutorrent running on my unRAID server and it works fine but I don't know what do to to get downloads working in Sickrage.
  19. I would prefer being able to use different IPs for dockers and stick with standard ports. IMHO it is easier to remember IP addresses then ports - so then you can just change the IP number and leave the port at 80 for web UIs. And you could even set up a hosts file to make things even easier. However it appears that things don't work the way that I want them to and that you can't configure the "docker side port" or however you call that.
  20. I am trying to use the docker but it is using the incorrect port. I want it to have its own IP address so I am using network type br0 and an IP address of I have changed the web GUI port to 80, but the container seems to insist on using port 5800 on my specified IP of I don't know where it got 5800 from as I don't see that port specified anywhere in the Docker settings.
  21. So there is even a third developer. How does Autotools work? Does it just add a line to the rtorrent.rc file or something like that? What I am getting at is that maybe there is an issue with the underlying rtorrent process for moving files upon completion of the torrent. Or maybe something changes and AutoTools was never updated to reflect the change.
  22. No fix that I have seen and do we know if the problem is with rtorrent or rutorrent? I don't think they have the same developers.
  23. I also experience issues with Automove not working on rutorrent, but for me it seems to work more often on unRAID then on ubuntu.
  24. This isn't utorrent, it is rtorrent/rutorrent but they are similar to utorrent. rtorrent is the back end rtorrent application and rutorrent is the web-based UI for rtorrent. You should be able to get to the UI by going to the unRAID Dashboard and then click on Rutorrent and WebUI. Then you configure everything through the browser - generally through settings which you access via the Gear icon on the Web UI. Google "rutorrent" and you should find more. You set the download file location in settings/Downloads. You can use Autotools to specify where files should get moved when downloads are completed.
  25. I believe that this is due to the fact that Kodi/XBMC was not originally intended as a client-server architecture. Plex, SageTV and others were designed with a client-server implementation with very light demands placed on the client. IMHO this is a shortcoming of Kodi.
