  1. I have been battling with issues of the system hanging and being inaccessible for the last few weeks. Out of desperation I completely swapped 90% of the hardware last night as believed it to be either a CPU, Mobo, or PSU issue. The only common hardware swapped was the drives, usb and Dell HBA. Guess what... Exactly same problems, and what's more the issue I had before of only half the RAM being accessible has magically allowedy up on the new build and disappeared on the old. I have applied the electrical tape to the pins and the card is flashed to IT MODE LSI v20. Any ideas? New HBA needed?
  2. Using an older i7 2600 , but will check bios to see if it's enabled. I believe I might have uncovered the problem with my setup finally... The problem only happens when it's connected to the APC Pro UPS system. Since I have disconnected it the problem has disappeared. Why it's causing the problem... Not a clue.. especially when the server is still running but becomes completely inaccessible... Didn't seem like a power issue. Happy it's running now, and will try and figure out the UPS in time.... Edit: Just to add, I have a second Windows 10 PC connected to the same UPS and no problems on it and combined draw from the 2 systems is around 200W, of which it's a 900W UPS
  3. Yes, installed Mover Tuning to see if it could help, but no dice... Its really strange, as seems to be holding onto a set amount of media files, and not moving from the cache..but if I move new files that go to the cache, it will move them onto the pool (but not the old ones). I am guessing by changing the settings at a point in time, the cache seems to think it needs to maintain these files.. changing the shares to Yes, No, etc doesnt seem to move them. Whats the best course, go to Krusader, move them somewhere else, and then back to where they should go?
  4. Hi. I seem to be having a strange issue with my cache drive in which share files seem to be staying on drive. I have marked all shares yes so it can try and transfer but when I try it doesn't do anything. Logs below for 2 attempted moves.

  5. Sorry for the delay. I followed the tag process to roll back binhex.. I had already deleted the library in attempts to fix the issue, so had to rebuild as a consequence, and nothing to do with rolling back binhex
  6. Bump. Happening 1-4 times per 24h's. Am now working to try and rule out specific hardware in a process of elimination. If any other idea's please share, as it feels like I am shooting in the dark.
  7. Just to add more, and update on things I have tried to repair.. So the problem seems to be completely random.. all working fine, monitoring logs, nothing flashing up negative, and then the server is not accessible (Plex doesnt pick up files, cannot log into GUI, and when I connect the monitor to the server its not displaying anything). The strange thing is that the server is still physically running (fans, disks, and the network port is still flashing). No way for me to access, and only way to get it back is to kill the power. I have tried to do a parity check several times, but it never gets long enough to complete, and the last run found over 2k errors and got to 90%. Zero logs available as get wiped with abrupt shutdown... I have since updated everything ( though had to step back plex as had issues with latest version) Installed and completed all steps in fix common problems removed the communicate cable to the APC Smart UPS, as recently got it so wasnt sure if it was the cause. Removed all dockers, etc that I havent been using.. Not sure where to go next, as really concerned now on the parity check errors but no way to complete parity check. Also super frustrating watching something on Plex and it stopping part way. Can anyone give any insight as to things worth trying to see if it resolves it? Is it most likely to be software or hardware? Is it normal when connecting a monitor to a booed Unraid system for it not to display (maybe because it wasnt connected at time of boot)? I am willing to try anything, as need it fixed asap..will even rebuild into another PC, if people think its worth a try (obviously moving drives but everything else would be different). Anything would be great..and highly appreciated...
  8. Any advice where to start to find a fix as happening now every day and can't even finish a parity check at this stage.. Attached both log and system diagnosis but both only show from start-up for some reason... media-diagnostics-20190828-0418.zip media-syslog-20190828-0421.zip
  9. i am having a very frustrating issue, which is now beyond my limited knowledge of Unraid and Plex.. So yesterday I decided to update Unraid (from 6.5 to 6.7.2), and Plex (linuxserver version) to the newest version. After that have had a whole host of issues, mainly with Plex which seemed to have corrupted the libraries for Movies & TV shows, making them unavailable and not possible to view via Plex GUI, or a respective player. After hours of trying to get it to work (and searching online), I decided to delete the docker, and rename the Appdata folder, installing the binhex version (all new). I thought it was strange on loading binhex that it gave my user details straight away (as not sure where it pulled it from), and on loading it, its saying that the server is not accessible and wont let me add any meedia to the library. Is there somewhere else I need to delete old plex data, as its doing my head in **UPDATE** OK looks like its the current plex version thats broken (both Linuxserver & binhex), and rolling back the binhex version is working.. Time to rebuild the library....
  10. I think I am having a similar issue, and looking through the forums seems to be allot of similar problems, but can't find a resolution... Server randomly seems to be inaccessible via GUI with no way to shut down or restart without doing a hard reset
  11. Hi, I seem to get an intermittent issue sometimes in which the server becomes unaccesible through the usual channels such as WebGUI (PC via Ethernet, and over WiFi from mobile), also not connecting with ControlR. When plugging in a display to the server it will not give any picture either (all wilst the server is still physically running). The only way to bring it back that I have discovered is by holding the powerbutton to hard reset (less than ideal). I tried to get a log (Tools>System Log), however it only has stored from the reboot itself, and nothing prior to that. Any idea's where I could start to dig to identify potential route causes?
  12. Yup..that will be the one, hence me being an idiot
  13. So I had an issue with a drive drop out and another have smart flag...which it turns out was an issue with one of the power cables or power supply. So I remounted the drive that dropped out and then got a message to run parity rebuild, which I selected yes. It has run its course for 12h and all drives are green but I was missing 5tb of data and the drive I remounted says it needs formatted. So I nformat the drive and unraid seems to be sitting now thinking everything is grand.. But I have 5tb less of data than before. Guessing it's gone.. If that's the case am sure I have done something wrong..that being said it will all be media files but I don't have a clue what files were specifically on that drive. Is there anyway for me check on Plex what is missing? Idiot..
  14. Thanks both! I will give it a try, update the BIOS and see how it performs. Will need to figure out the least disruptive way to trail it, as if it's boarderline the the VM not be best as a daily Windows 10 platform.
  15. Hi, so my setup has an old i7 2600 CPU, and an Asus P8Z77-V board. The CPU is good, as can find it supports both VT-X &VT-D. I cannot find anything online definitively to suggest the board supports VT-D, just comments that most ASUS Z77's dont. In the BIOS there is nothing definitely mentioned beyond the typical Intel Virtualisation, however when I enable it and check my Unraid system info it says both HVM & IOMMU are enabled... What I would like to achieve is to bring both systems into 1, with unraid the primary operating system (using onboard video), but a dedicated Windows 10 VM using a GPU and booting to a monitor. All advice is welcome, as would prefer to validate if it will work before pulling both systems apart...
