  1. Sounds like someone has had the same idea I had a few years ago when I built my server! 🤣
  2. I hope Unraid don't mind (if you do then let me know) but i've bee n building an Unraid plugin for Ferdi (getferdi.com). It basically allows you to access your Unraid dashboard from within Ferdi as it's a page I like to have open most of the time and with it being in Ferdi, it doesn't clog up my main browser. It has support for notifications too. Unraid is support in the new 5.5.0 GM build. Enjoy!
  3. @binhex Found it. Ok, yes corruption is mentioned. When you state "Move Plex metadata to cache drive". How do I do this? I'm unsure of the steps to acheive this? I am also running the latest version of unraid so why did this happen if the bug is no longer present in this version?
  4. Can you check the link? I just see "Not Found"?
  5. For some reason as of yesterday I can't access Plex. The web UI fails to load and I can't access it via the Apple TV either. Here's the latest logs: 2020-02-23 14:37:09.105281 [info] System information Linux TARDIS 4.19.98-Unraid #1 SMP Sun Jan 26 09:15:03 PST 2020 x86_64 GNU/Linux 2020-02-23 14:37:09.125494 [info] PUID defined as '99' 2020-02-23 14:37:09.147151 [info] PGID defined as '100' 2020-02-23 14:37:09.218180 [info] UMASK defined as '000' 2020-02-23 14:37:09.238160 [info] Permissions already set for volume mappings 2020-02-23 14:37:09.258091 [info] TRANS_DIR defined as '/config/transcode' 2020-02-23 14:37:09.281146 [info] Deleting files in /tmp (non recursive)... 2020-02-23 14:37:09.299892 [info] Starting Supervisor... 2020-02-23 14:37:09,423 INFO Included extra file "/etc/supervisor/conf.d/plexmediaserver.conf" during parsing 2020-02-23 14:37:09,424 INFO Set uid to user 0 succeeded 2020-02-23 14:37:09,425 INFO supervisord started with pid 6 2020-02-23 14:37:10,427 INFO spawned: 'plexmediaserver' with pid 55 2020-02-23 14:37:10,428 INFO reaped unknown pid 7 2020-02-23 14:37:10,491 DEBG fd 8 closed, stopped monitoring <POutputDispatcher at 22991339452112 for <Subprocess at 22991339451584 with name plexmediaserver in state STARTING> (stdout)> 2020-02-23 14:37:10,492 DEBG fd 10 closed, stopped monitoring <POutputDispatcher at 22991339450960 for <Subprocess at 22991339451584 with name plexmediaserver in state STARTING> (stderr)> 2020-02-23 14:37:10,492 INFO exited: plexmediaserver (exit status 255; not expected) 2020-02-23 14:37:10,492 DEBG received SIGCHLD indicating a child quit 2020-02-23 14:37:11,494 INFO spawned: 'plexmediaserver' with pid 60 2020-02-23 14:37:11,555 DEBG fd 8 closed, stopped monitoring <POutputDispatcher at 22991339043136 for <Subprocess at 22991339451584 with name plexmediaserver in state STARTING> (stdout)> 2020-02-23 14:37:11,556 DEBG fd 10 closed, stopped monitoring <POutputDispatcher at 22991339346432 for <Subprocess at 22991339451584 with name plexmediaserver in state STARTING> (stderr)> 2020-02-23 14:37:11,556 INFO exited: plexmediaserver (exit status 255; not expected) 2020-02-23 14:37:11,556 DEBG received SIGCHLD indicating a child quit 2020-02-23 14:37:13,559 INFO spawned: 'plexmediaserver' with pid 65 2020-02-23 14:37:13,620 DEBG fd 8 closed, stopped monitoring <POutputDispatcher at 22991339450960 for <Subprocess at 22991339451584 with name plexmediaserver in state STARTING> (stdout)> 2020-02-23 14:37:13,620 DEBG fd 10 closed, stopped monitoring <POutputDispatcher at 22991339043472 for <Subprocess at 22991339451584 with name plexmediaserver in state STARTING> (stderr)> 2020-02-23 14:37:13,620 INFO exited: plexmediaserver (exit status 255; not expected) 2020-02-23 14:37:13,620 DEBG received SIGCHLD indicating a child quit 2020-02-23 14:37:16,624 INFO spawned: 'plexmediaserver' with pid 70 2020-02-23 14:37:16,687 DEBG fd 8 closed, stopped monitoring <POutputDispatcher at 22991339346432 for <Subprocess at 22991339451584 with name plexmediaserver in state STARTING> (stdout)> 2020-02-23 14:37:16,687 DEBG fd 10 closed, stopped monitoring <POutputDispatcher at 22991339452112 for <Subprocess at 22991339451584 with name plexmediaserver in state STARTING> (stderr)> 2020-02-23 14:37:16,687 INFO exited: plexmediaserver (exit status 255; not expected) 2020-02-23 14:37:16,687 DEBG received SIGCHLD indicating a child quit 2020-02-23 14:37:17,688 INFO gave up: plexmediaserver entered FATAL state, too many start retries too quickly Any ideas?

    Sync GUI

    I'm just looking for a way to configure the whole sync end to end in a gui. Is that not possible?
  7. Any update on this @limetech? I'd really like to get my TM backups back to working order.

    Sync GUI

    Hey, Is there a GUI version of rclone for Unraid? Or a GUI sync application that will allow me to sync directories from a share to different cloud storage locations? I'm after sync and not backup. Thanks
  9. I have this set up and working but how can i access the files stored on my Unraid? How can i map locations on the server to locations in MacOS?
  10. Just disabled that option and doing some tests. Will report back. May I ask how this will help?
  11. @limetech Thanks for the suggestion. I don't think it's working as i've left my machine doing a TM backup all day since 7:30am and it's done less than 5Gb and this is over a wired connection. Something else must be wrong here. Any ideas?
  12. Hello, I have a Time Machine share set up on my server to backup my MacBook Pro too but it's unbelievably slow. Any suggestions how to speed it up or figure out why it's slow? I'm using a 2017 13" MacBook Pro running Catalina 10.15.2. Connected via Ethernet as well. All suggestions very much welcome! Thanks, Neil Edit: As per @limetech instructions I have attached diagnostics: tardis-diagnostics-20200204-2055.zip

  16. Sorry, I'm not a very technical person in regards to servers. I have an Unraid machine for basic file storage and Plex but nothing more than that. I am currently running 6.8rc7. I have no issues currently. Should I just stay where I am or upgrade? If I stay where I am, what version should I wait for to start updating again? Thanks.
  17. @limetech Would it be possible to get a "Keep me signed in" option on the new sign in form? Even if it only keeps you signed in for a short-ish period of time would be helpful. Thanks, Neil
  18. Snazzy! - Upgrade seemed to work fine. If i notice anything i'll post an update. Thanks for all your hard work!
  19. Hey, I while back I was having trouble with getting Time Machine to actually do a backup. It kept getting stuck in the "Preparing backup" stage and would never move on. In frustration I looks around online and people told me to locate the .inProgress file and remove it. I moved this to my Trash and it allowed Time Machine to fully complete a backup. But.... I seem to have made a problem for myself. I now have this file in my trash which refuses to actually delete. I stupidly renamed it to "test" and I can leave my Trash emptying for hours and hours but it never gets removed. I THINK it was a ".inProgress" file but I have no clue what the actually previous name was unfortunatley. If I try to "Get Info" on it it says it is in "Time Machine Backups > .Trashes". How do I find this and remove it. It only shows up in my Mac's Trash when the server is on and a backup has been started. It's really annoying and i've learnt not to be so hasty when things go wrong!! I hope someone here can help me solve this. Thanks, Neil
  20. Just 7Tb for me right now. I'm at 60% full at the mo so should be good for a little while.
  21. Hey, I was using the official Plex Docker and yesterday the web interface refused to load and just gave an error. I tried a whole host of things but it failed to get working. In my annoyance I deleted the Docker and installed the binhex one. I started it up and it has data left over from my previous Plex, eg, it knows the server name etc but cant access any data and feels messed up. I have a copy of the appdata of the old one i deleted, is there a way to transplant this into my new binhex Docker and get everything back up and running? I'd really appreciate someones help with this as i've totally made a mess of it and really would like to get it back up and running. Thanks!

    iTunes

    Well i do like to use itunes whilst i am not at home (my server is only on whilst im at home) and if the iTunes folder is on the server then my library file won;t be able to be found. I did think about moving everything excluding the library file over but itunes is not smart and it tries to find a track file, fails and doesn;t think to just check if it's available for streaming.

    iTunes

    Hey, I currently have all my music (iTunes) stored locally on my MacBook Pro. I like having it local as then I can play tracks in higher quality than the ones on iTunes in the Cloud. I do have iTunes in the Cloud set up and anything I add to iTunes automatically gets added to that as well so I can play tracks on my phone or my work laptop. Basically, I am really running out of space on my laptop and think it's time to move my local music onto my Unraid server. Does anyone have a guide on doing this? I basically want to move all the local files over to Unraid but so I can still access them from iTunes in some way when I am at home but when i'm out I can just stream them from iTunes in the Cloud. Also, how does syncing tracks manually to my iPhone work when this is configured? Eg, I like to do a manual sync of tracks to my phone for when i'm travelling in order to save data. Kind regards, Neil
  24. Happy Birthday Unraid, I came across Unraid by a mention in an LTT video and I suddenly thought "Wow, I am in need of just such a thing". I downloaded the trial and gave it a spin on some really old hardware. It works super well and since then I have purchased new hardware, nothing spectacular, but it does what I need it to do: File storage, Plex server and Time Machine backups. Thanks!
