  1. After some digging, I found that the problem is due to Deluge setting a cookie whose value is longer (1819 bytes) than noVNC can cope with, hence the 403 Request Entity Too Large. Quite why it needs that much to list which columns should be shown, and in what order, I don't know! I don't suppose this is that easy to fix — I assume the limit is in upstream code somewhere? As a workaround I've changed the Deluge Docker container to provide http://«servername»:8112 as its web interface, so that the browser sees it as being a separate webserver from http://«ip», which is what the VNC Remote button uses, but if any Docker container that's been accessed via the server IP and a port can break browser VNC, it's not good…
  2. I've cleared my browser cache, but still cannot connect via noVNC using Firefox. I can connect using a third-party VNC client, so the problem seems to be in noVNC. Does anybody have any idea what the problem could be? It's a pain to have to fire up TigerVNC and find the correct port to connect to when you just want to verify something…
  3. Is there a list of banned share names anywhere? I'd like to check mine are OK before I hit the update button 😁
  4. When I have symlinks in a share, and mount that share over CIFS to my Mac, the symlinks show as copies of the file, rather than symlinks. For example, if I have a share at /mnt/user/test mounted on the Mac at /Volumes/test, and the share contains a file called "test", then I see this: $ ls -l /Volumes/test -rwx------ 1 user staff 10 4 Feb 10:00 test $ ssh unraid # cd /mnt/user/test # ln -s ./test othertest # ls -l -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 1024 4 Feb 10:00 test lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 4 Feb 10:01 othertest -> ./test # exit $ ls -l /Volumes/test -rwx------ 1 user staff 1024 4 Feb 10:00 test -rwx------ 1 user staff 1024 4 Feb 10:01 othertest The file "othertest" appears on the Mac as a plain file which is an exact copy of "test". Changes made to one show in the other. If I create a symlink on the Mac, however, it shows up properly: $ cd /Volumes/test $ ln -s ./test yetanothertest $ ls -l -rwx------ 1 user staff 1024 4 Feb 10:01 othertest -rwx------ 1 user staff 1024 4 Feb 10:00 test lrwx------ 1 user staff 21 4 Feb 10:00 yetanothertest -> ./test Unfortunately, I need to do stuff on the Mac side where the symlinks actually appear as symlinks. Is there a way I can configure it so symlinks work as expected, or do I have to deal with the horrors of NFS for this?
  5. Please could we have the RSS feed? It shouldn't be too difficult to implement, and it makes life much easier for those of us who do use RSS. I get far too much email as it is, and I don't want to know about new videos and popular forum posts — just blog articles. IMHO, without an RSS feed, it shouldn't even be called a "blog"
  6. When I run the Docker container, the log says XML template file for the vm was placed in Unraid system files. This file assumes your vm path is /mnt/user/domains if it isnt you will need to manually edit the template changing the locations accordingly Would it be possible for it to output the path to that XML file at that point, instead of just saying "Unraid system files"? I've looked all through /boot and I can't find it — and I need to change /mnt/user/domains to /mnt/disks/vms… EDIT: d'oh — I can just edit the XML after restarting the server and before starting the VM, of course. Might be more helpful if the message mentioned that, for the decaffeinated 😁
  7. Do we need to change anything in our unRAID configs in order to continue getting updates to this container, if it's being renamed? Or will the rename get picked up automatically?
  8. Ah — I was connecting to port 7806 with the VNC client. That explains a lot. I don't have Chrome installed, but Vivaldi is based on Chromium (it loses a bunch of Google-specific stuff I don't want, and adds several very useful configuration options). As I said, it worked fine there, too. I cleared the Firefox cache and it still didn't work without using private mode — but clearing all cookies and localStorage set by the unRAID machine did. Not sure what had got stored that was causing the confusion, but it's all resolved now. Thanks for your help!
  9. It works inside a private window, and if I use Vivaldi rather than Firefox Developer Edition (but that's a pain as I have to copy/paste the link rather than just clicking, obviously). All adblockers are disabled for the unRAID server's address in Firefox, but not in Vivaldi — but they all report nothing is blocked, anyway. I've tried disabling each extension individually, with no effect. Most of them were active in Vivaldi anyway. The connection doesn't get established when I use TigerVNC. console.log.txt It's very mysterious… ¿ⓧ_ⓧﮌ
  10. Thanks — no joy with a cache clear, or with enabling privileged mode. Doesn't work in Vivaldi or Firefox (where it used to work). This is what I get in the browser console: Msg: Starting VNC handshake util.js:218:50 Msg: Sent ProtocolVersion: 003.008 util.js:218:50 Source map error: Error: request failed with status 404 Resource URL: Source Map URL: bootstrap.min.css.map WebSocket on-close event util.js:218:50 Msg: Server disconnected (code: 1006) Not sure the source map error is relevant and it sometimes occurs after the server disconnect.
  11. I can't get the Web UI to work — I just get the toolbar at the top with a red X next to the MakeMKV logo. When I mouse over the X, I see a tooltip with the message "Server disconnected (code: 1006)". I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the container. There is a "s6-svwait: fatal: timed out" in the log (attached) but I don't know if it's significant. Does anybody have any idea what's going wrong? I've just bought a new DVD box set that I'd like to rip… log.txt
  12. Slightly confused — are you saying that I can just define this disk as a separate cache pool and then use that for the VM storage? I'm talking about the disk images for the VMs, not libvirt.img…
  13. It's turning red for me as well. It's not changing to a state where "it's working now". I can change each VM individually, and they all work, but new VMs created still try to use /mnt/user/domains. The only way I was able to change it was by editing /boot/config/domains.cfg and rebooting (which is no quick task with a Dell R720 — it takes over five minutes to restart!) Why is there this restriction? And why does it just turn the text red rather than displaying a helpful error message — it's really poor UX… Just to make me feel like I've really got value for the $49 I've just paid to upgrade my licence, I've tried to rename a stopped VM. The button changes from "Update" to "Updating…" — and then stays like that (update: now over ten minutes since I clicked the button. TEN MINUTES TO RENAME A VM!) You would think that changing the name of a VM would be pretty near instant, but apparently it takes over a minute. What exactly is unRAID trying to do that takes so long — and why isn't there any sort of feedback (a window with estimated time remaining would be useful. Doing the update in the background and letting me use the UI for other things would be even more useful, because navigating away from the page stops the rename!)
