  1. I don't see this specified in the original post, but I fixed this by using "telegraf:1.18-alpine" as the Repository, rather than the default value of "telegraf:latest"
  2. I'm having the craziest time with a simple thing, getting the apk commands to work. Whether I use the Post Arguments, or use the UnRAID console in to the Telegraf docker container, attempting to use the apk command just results in "apk: not found" I'm clearly missing something simple, as I haven't seen this pop up for anyone else. Any ideas? Using atribe's telegraf, repository telegraf:latest telegraf conf - https://pastebin.com/EA6reVdA
  3. The typical settings (on Blue Iris 4 - I imagine 5 is similar) to set up Quicksync is Settings -> Cameras -> Hardware accelerated Decode to "Intel" and verify it's working with the "GPU 0 - Video Decode" message for Blue Iris in Task Manager. If you are using an UnRAID VM for BI, you'll need to pass through the iGPU first.
  4. For some reason it wasn't working before. The field turned red when I tried to save, with no error message on screen or the log. It's working now. Can't explain it, but working now. Thanks.
  5. I know this is an old thread, but a Google search turned this up as my exact issue. I'm thinking UnRAID doesn't support this any more - or I'm doing something wrong. I bought a new NVMe drive to house my VMs (NOT to pass through to VMs - to store the VMs). In Settings -> VM Manager, Default VM storage path now requires a path within /mnt/user. My unassigned device (mounted) is in /mnt/disks/[diskid]. Even the help for this field mentions "Specify a user share that contains all your VM subdirectories with vdisks"). Just pasting in the /mnt/disks/... path doesn't work. Can anyone confirm this functionality is no longer supported? Thanks.
  6. Also relevant is this post, which reached the same conclusion:
  7. Yes, I believe you are right. There was a directory for every source media file created on disk 1. When the command errored out, I deleted all the empty directories. Since my UnRAID minimum space was already triggered, it then moved on to disk 2 - but rsync then created a directory for EVERY media file on disk 2 - even movies that were already on disk 1! I'll need to see if I can turn this behaviour off with a switch. I head several people here use rsync to copy between servers. I'd love to hear how others have gotten around this issue. Thanks
  8. I've created a backup UnRAID server. I has two data disks (parity will come later, after copy done). I've noticed a difference in behaviour about where files go depending if I'm copying the files from Windows or Linux (specifically, another UnRAID server). All computers are on the local network. The destination server has a Media share set to Split first two levels (within the share I have Movies and TV Shows directories, then under that a folder holding each movie or TV series). Method is Fill Up, 10G minimum space, but the same behaviour is seen regardless if this is High Water. Included disks All, Excluded None, use cache disk No, Security Public, Enhanced OS X No. What I'm seeing is that when copying via rsync from the other UnRAID machine, only disk 1 is used, and the copy continues until there is no space left, ignoring both the allocation method and minimum free space settings. When copying the same files from Windows, the copy spills over to use disk 2 when the minimum space is hit and the copy continues as expected. Even if allocation method is high-water, rsync will totally fill disk 1 and error out about no space left, when disk 2 is sitting there unused. I copy some files from Windows to the same share and now I see files going to disk 2. rsync is writing to /mnt/user/Media, the same share I'm writing to when I using WIndows (via SMB to Media share). I notice there is also a /mnt/user0/Media - maybe I should be using that directory instead of /mnt/user/Media? Anyone else notice this behaviour?
  9. Any Crashplan for Small Business users here? I wonder if the $10/month/computer unlimited data deal is still valid for a file server(ie, not truly unlimited).
  10. In your day-to-day Blue Iris monitoring, do you all use Remote Desktop to access the actual Windows interface, or do you just remote in with <IPAddress>:81 web viewer? I believe that has less functionality than the actual desktop interface. Just curious what you all are using and the relative performance.
  11. Awesome, that’s the approach I’ve been trying - thanks!
  12. I know this thread is about 4 months old but my question is directly related to the topic. I’ve been running Blue Iris on a dedicated server and it’s been running well. In an effort to consolidate, I’ve created a Windows 10 VM on my UnRAID Server and installed Blue Iris on that. I’ve got a pretty small/simple camera system that easily runs within my resources. As as for the data drive, it seems like recording outside the array is the best bet, so I moved my 4TB WD Purple surveillance drive into the UnRAID Server and mounted it using Unassigned devices. This is brings me to my question. What’s the best way to have the Windows 10 VM see this drive? Right now I set up a second virtual file system on this drive, but I’m curious if some other solution is better practice, sharing the disk, etc (the virtual file system only shows in Windows partition manager as 2TB max also - but that’s another issue). I record continuously and am fine with the surveillance drive staying spin up 24/7 (after all that’s what it’s designed for). Thanks!
  13. I’m a little concerned you seemingly found out about the problem not from UnRAID, but from the fact that a backup didn’t complete (along with your comment that this could have been happening for some time). I don’t currently run UnRAID but am thinking about switching. Can a user have some sort of automated notification set up to shoot out an email in the case of some sort of disk write (or SMART) error?
