  1. Ok sounds good.. is LT adding a USB backup tool? I think mine is on the way out, (very slow boot), so I'd just like to make sure I have a backup of the data!
  2. Hi all, I just started using this plugin again, and my first back up ran Monday night. It all seems to have worked, I'm seeing a dated TAR file for the app data as expected, however, my USB back up seems to just be a copy of the data - no TAR and no date-version. Is this expected behaviour? I was expecting TARs for both the "Use Compression: Yes" setting? Thanks, whiteatom
  3. I just did a fresh install and copied over my config/key files.. all seems to be well. It still seems like the 6.5.3 MD5 hash is wrong - so I don't know who can fix that!
  4. I tried that and I get the following: and the last 5 lines repeat about 20 times. Any other suggestion? EDIT: this was using the direct link for the plugin from here: . The CA plugin does not support my older version (6.1.6).
  5. Hi all, I'm trying to upgrade my backup server from 6.1.6 to the latest stable. The UnRAID Server OS plugin is there, and when I check for updates, it finds an update to 6.5.3, but when I click update, I get an MD5 error: I can't see any reason this would be failing on my system??, so is the md5 hash for the 6.5.3 zip out of sync? Any help would be appreciated!
  6. Hi all, I found a... bug? no potential enhancement in UA. If you are in a mounted drive on the CLI and then unmount the drive in UI through UA, it lets you do it - but it creates a mess. The drive won't properly unmount because it's in use, but there's no error or anything.. The disk shows as unmounted, but the directories are still there in the /mnt/disks/ - obviously accessing them causes an error. A simple mount and unmount fixes it all, but a detection for the drive being in use (similar to how the main array won't unmount if a disk is in use) would be a good improvement.
  7. I'm just looking for a pre-clear "slot", so the external should be OK. This eSATA plate with a SATA cable is exactly what I think I'm going to do. Thanks for the input!
  8. Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone has found a good eSata/Sata connected hard drive dock? My case is full, and I am slowly upgrading drives. It would be very nice to have an external dock so I can pre-clear drives ahead of time. I have a USB one, but it was pre-reading at 25mb/sec and it was I realized it's far too slow for pre-clearing large drives. What I'd like to do is glue a drive dock to the top of my case and just run a Sata cable down through a small hole. I could also use an eSATA dock with a port converter card. I guess I could also just get a USB 3 card and do it that way. Does anyone have any experience with something suitable that you could recommend?
  9. Hi all, Thanks for this great plugin. I noticed something in the logs when I started a new pre-clear... I'm wondering why it thinks this disk (a WD red 6tb) is an SSD. Should I adjust something to do the head stress test that it has disabled? Thanks, whiteatom
  10. No GPU - all CPU transcoding here. I got called back to work (I work away) before this crash happened again, so I ended up downgrading to avoid an angry wife. I also found a few other issues with 6.8.0 that I didn't really notice until they were gone after the downgrade: I was getting random "The server is no longer available" errors on my Mac (10.15.2) for my connected network drives. The drive would usually work without issues, but something was trigger the disconnection. My TimeMachine backup would hang on "looking for backup disk" and not back up some times... but it would work just fine after I cancelled and manually tried to backup (probably the same issue as above). Logging into the webUI on an iPad would go to a blank page about half the time. A refresh would fix it, but something odd there. Anyway, life continues perfectly on 6.7.2, will try the .1 when its out. whiteatom
  11. Hi all, My system has been locking up about once a week since I updated to newest just before Christmas. Running 6.8.0 with dockers for Plex, Sab, Radarr, Sonarr. When it goes, it's completely locked up - the network stops responding and the terminal/IPMI is unresponsive - a hard power down/reboot is required. My first sign is usually Plex stream breaking or my ATV saying the Plex server is unavailable. My system was running for 200 days before that without issues on the previous version of UnRaid, so it appears to be 6.8.0 specific. I just enabled the saving of the syslog to my flash, so I don't have a log yet, but I'll get one next time it happens. I have checked the weekly cron (most obvious thing in my mind), but there's only a script to scp some files from another server, and that's scheduled for the first day of the week and my most recent crash was last night. Obviously I have to wait for it to happen again before I can get a syslog, but does anyone have any suggestions on what else I could be looking at? Cheers, whiteatom
  12. I still this issues is still not fixed.. Just got a great deal on an MX500 that i'm using for Plex under UA and I open the unRaid UI to about 20 notices from this drive every time. Looking for the uncheck of smart attributes now.
  13. Ok.. I unassigned and assigned a few times then reboot without any change. However, I unassigned, rebooted and then reassigned and it seems to work now. I guess I didn't try that combination before, so it's all working now. Thanks!
  14. Will do when I get home again. Cache2 says "drive is part of a cache pool" where it should show the drive capacity/usage on the Main screen. What would cause it to show that if it's not assigned?
