  1. I have guac setup and it was working with one of my unraid VMs. But now I can't connect? I can connect to a real pc with guac.. But not the VM.. I can RDP into the VM just fine. Where are the logs located so I can see if there is an error connecting.. Jim
  2. I thought it was... I guess I changed it when I add more VM's... Don't want to fill up cache drive!
  3. Yeah I do... It looks like I need to move my image file to the cache drive.
  4. When I turn on a VM, all my disks spin up and stay spun up. Is this a known thing? The image file is on one disk that I would expect to stay spun up.. But the others should spin down? Thanks, Jim
  5. I did end up setting up Guac. I like that you can do 2FA. That makes me feel a little more secure.
  6. I'm getting this message any time I stop and start the VM manager. With a reboot It starts fine. But if I disable VM's and then enable VM's, libvirt doesn't start and there is nothing in the /var/log/libvirt/libvirtd.log file. Where can I look to debug this? This all started when I started playing with "Virtual Machine Wake On Lan" I'm trying (unsuccessfully) to start a VM with WOL. Now I have no idea if this is connected. I don't remember the last time I had to disable/enable the VM's And I would like to get the WOL for VM's working.. But that's a separate thread! lol Jim
  7. I, also, am having trouble getting guac to start a VM with WOL. I'm following @SpaceInvaderOne's guide on youtube and my VM won't start.
  8. I knew I vaguely remembered something! Thanks for pointing this out! I will check it out! I may have even watched it before! lol Jim
  9. I'm trying to figure out how to access some of my dockers and webpages at home from work. I'm currently using a openVPN client on my work machine and that's fine. But soon I'll have to have a new machine which won't allow any VPN software installed. So I'm trying to figure out the best way to access my home network from a webpage. So I was thinking some some sort of secure remote access to a VM from a webpage. did @SpaceInvaderOne ever do a video on that? He has so many great videos its hard to search! lol (and thanks for all those!) I'm sure there is something out there.. Like splashtop or remotePC? Thanks, Jim
  10. ha! a couple days later and the price for the 12T pro is $226!! I'm looking for a 10TB and that version is $249!! LOL why is the 12TB cheaper?
  11. I'm getting the not available with ESPHome now.
  12. Someone asked for the steps I used. So here they are., 1. download the ISO image from the Samsung website. (Link above - make sure you grab the correct image) 2. Make a bootable USB flash drive from the ISO. (I used Rufus - but I'm sure there are others) I did this on Windows. 3. If you feel paranoid, I would make sure you have a everything on your cache drive backed up. - I didn't lose data but better to be safe than sorry. 4. Shutdown Unraid. 5. Yank Unraid flash drive and put in the Samsung ISO image drive you just created. 6. boot the Samsung image and follow the prompts to update the firmware. Some folks had issues with a USB keyboard in the past. I had no issues. 7. Power down the unraid machine again 8. take out the Samsung flash drive and put back in the Unraid flash drive. 9. Power on the Unraid machine and verify you have the updated firmware.
  13. Well I just, successfully updated the firmware on both drives. Hopefully I won't see any issues with the overtemp any more. I was able to update using the ISO image burned to a flash drive. I got the image from here. It warned about possibly erasing all data but it did not do that for me. My data was intact, thank god! So now we'll see if get those overtemps again! Jim
  14. I was able to update using the ISO image on the samsung website I got it from here. It scared the hell out of me as it warned ~"This will or may erase all data" So I just did one at a time (I have two) and each were fine. No data was erased! Some folks on other website claimed that the ISO didn't work and described how to do it manually. I didn't have to go that route, thankfully...
  15. Thanks! I ended up getting a 10T Red plus. It was cheaper than the 8T! go figure! I'll use that to replace my 1st parity drive which is 8T. So now both drives parity drives will be 10T. Now I just have to remember how to do that after I replace my 4T that has some read errors.
  16. For my own benefit and I don't have to find it again. Here is a link on how to update the FW https://blog.quindorian.org/2021/05/firmware-update-samsung-ssd-in-linux.html/ Now I haven't tried it yet...
  17. Thanks! That does seem to be the issue. Maybe I'll try to update the FW of the drive(s) if I can figure out how to do it safely. Changing the boot config seems easier though. But updated the FW is probably the better solution?? Jim
  18. I was having this issue too. Further along the article linked above talks about updating the firmware of the drive to fix this as well. To me that seems like a better fix... But I'm not sure how I would go about updating the FW! It seems a little scary! 🙂
  19. Every once and a while I get this error reported Event: Unraid Cache disk temperature Subject: Alert [TOWER] - Cache disk overheated (84 C) Description: Samsung_SSD_980_1TB_******** (nvme0n1) Importance: alert Then a couple minutes later it returns to normal? I have two nvme disks and I see this (seemingly) random on either one. I don't think I've seen both at the same time. I see one of these every couple of days or so.. I find it hard to believe these are real.. Are they? Are they doing some sort of SSD cleanup? Jim
  20. Well my latest parity check caused some read errors on one of my older drives. So time to replace, I guess! I can get a 8T Blue for ~$120 Or a Ironwolf for ~$160 or a WD Red Plus for ~$165. Does it really matter if I get a Blue for a data disk? In the past I've shucked drive from externals.. But I see the Blue is cheaper and the reds are not that much more expensive than externals. I think they are all CMR. Thanks!
  21. The new test is saying my unraid_notify is corrupted. I can download it and it looks just fine? I'd post it here, but there is soo much I'd have to take out! (e-mails, passwords..) How do you want to debug?
  22. Damn! I was hoping that 6.10 would fix/address this like @Squid alluded to... Fingers crossed that whatever change they going to do wasn't put in yet...
  23. I, Normally, don't have main or dashboard open. For me, it's the docker window and a couple of the docker web interfaces. And in the past it was open web terminals (I only use putty now!). So I don't know if the 6.10 release will fix for all.. Fingers crossed that it will though!!! And I do hope that they are looking into this as it's slightly annoying... Not bad enough to bug them constantly... but always hoping for a post here from them saying that they found the issue! 🙂
