  1. Checking back to see if I have this setup correctly ?
  2. Couldn't tell you why, thought it was for speed and being close to the appdata for dockers (relative paths). If that's incorrect, I'm fine making changes, just looking to know what the ideal setup is for what I would consider a standard unraid setup. SSD Cache, drives, dockers and vm's.
  3. diagnostics posted. to be honest, once unraid was up and running, never really had a problem. but in backing up my system, I was just concerned that the downloads folder was so large. I thought everything was setup with the SSD Cache drives mostly for docker and downloads to make sure they were as fast as possible. Mover running once a week or month to get it off to the spinning rust. Second server was to backup using proxmox and zfs.
  4. Looking to make sure I understand the folder structure and why files are in certain directories. I know this has been covered probably many times, but didn't find a quick answer when looking. Currently I have another NAS that I'm backing up CA Backup plugin to (Unassigned Devices plugin). In doing so I was curious to the USB / libvert.img sizes and then the backup location which showed plex having 18GB... so running on that largest folder I noticed that the downloads folder was even larger #du -sh -- * /mnt/user/appdata/Downloads 169GB Completed 5.
  5. Ignore that, just figured out my own stupidity after another cup of coffee. files are mounted in /disks and for some reason I was dyslexic. rsync -av --progress --human-readable /mnt/user/Movies/ /mnt/disks/PVE_BigData_Files/Movies/ rsync -av --progress --human-readable /mnt/user/Movies/ /mnt/disks/PVE_BigData_Files/Movies/ works. now to let this run for a year
  6. I always forget how I did it, and or can't find on google what's going wrong. Setup is a Proxmox ZFS share in SMB (confirmed it's mounted and works. have multiple time machine backups hitting folders within this share) Unraid 6.8.3, and mounted that share locally on the MAIN page. lists the share as //pve/BigData. What I'm not getting is that I was expecting to see a local mount point in /mnt and thought I would be doing a local rsync between the /user/Movies within unraid to /mnt/Movies etc.... but I don't see /mnt/otherserver smb share listed there... what am I
  7. I never added any data to those disks. I installed them, forgot about them and when SMART ran it found they were bad. so I disabled them. Doing a new config would be wiping everything? I remember reading about it, but not fulling understanding if I was going to lose everything. I'm guessing based on what I remember, and your comment. That doing so would allow me to remove the disks, but the whole thing would need to rebuild from parity less the disks I removed, and would take what ever amount of time unraid does for my data set (30hrs).
  8. got it, thank you. There's no easy way to remove that correct? Thanks again for the answer, sorry it took so long to come back around and give thanks. New kid, new focus in the house.
  9. Looking for some guidence on why my parity is showing as invalid. Been running unraid for 2 years now, no real issues. just noticed that I got the orange triangle. Did a manual scan last night and it has 0 errors. Only thing I can think of is that I put an old drive in a while back and it failed, (no data on it) I was just adding it to the system for eventual use. IF that's the reason, can I not simply remove the drive from the array since there's no data on it with out blowing everything up? Never removed a drive in unraid before.
  10. ok, so manually typing everything in worked.... I even made sure after pasting it in previously to delete and spacing and re-type the last letter to make sure there were no spaces... ok, back in business! Thank you.
  11. not super familiar with docker commands... what specifically am I doing... within the command line of unraid or console of plex, running "docker run image ID?"
  12. Had it working, had to re-install plex, no I can't get the GPU to transcode. Lost my plex library, deleted docker, CA template and started fresh. Re-followed the install instructions for plex, variables etc. enabled hardware within plex menu etc... rebooted. Still can't get it to work. Testing on mobile phone, HEVC to x264 over Internet. Even playing .avi files I'm not seeing it convert like it did previously. Rebooted the server, checked nvidia plugin's there etc.... what else can I do to try and figure out why? Unraid nvidia plugin is on the rc5.
  13. ok, screenshot of the shares. For the sake of doing this one last time, deleted the plex docker, deleted the CA template. re-installed plex (did an immediate update), added library's back. Currently rescanning all files (gonna take a while)
