  1. Hi I would like to install Dotnet Core (.Net Core) on my Unraid box to be able to run some console apps. I came across SlackBuilds, however for some reason I'm getting permission denied message. I run chmod 777 on downloaded files but that did not improve anything. There are instructions on how to install Dotnet Core on Ubuntu etc. I'm guessing that process would be similar on Unraid. Anyone tried and installed successfully Dotnet Core on their machine? I'm not interested on running
  2. Hi, I'm interested in your opinions, experiences and choices you made regarding online backup. I had Crashplan account and recently I decided to part away. After looking at various options I decided to go with Duplicati docker + online backup. Duplicati supports various services. However, not all services are created equal. Crashplan monthly fee was initially $5 per month. Then, when they made business changes, the price went up and at some point I paid $30 per month. I always had some problems with Crashplan docker, however I did not want to delete old backups. Finally, I dec
  3. Thank you. I will use different strategy with filesystem conversion and swapping drives.
  4. Thanks. I know this procedure, however when you are replacing with new drive and you want to set new file format, unraid will perform formatting anyway. We are not performing conversion from RFS to XFS. Parity has no specific file format. Based on what you have said, part of parity that relates to swapped drive will be deleted. To tell the truth I do not know how is this possible without recalculating parity. Most of the users will not know this. They would simply swap drives and set desired file system in the process. They would definitely not know that their array could be affected, despite
  5. How you supposed to change filesystem or replace drive (format it) when parity is affected by it?
  6. Unraid 6.5.2 I’m not sure if the data loss is caused by mine own actions or this is software bug. I was replacing drives in my server. I purchased two 12TB drives. One would replace parity drive, and second would replace one of array drives. I precleared both drives. The total array size was 15TB with only 200 GB free space left. These are the steps that I took: 1. Replaced parity drive 2. Rebuild parity 3. Replaced smaller drive with 12TB drive 4. Started array The process of rebuilding drive has started, but I realized that I forgot to forma
  7. I bought two 12TB drives. One will replace parity drive and second will be added to the array. UD is not allowing me even touch this drive, so I was worried that something went wrong during preclear process. Some people reported before that they had to use flag -A on their larger drives, but I think this issue was fixed already. Thanks
  8. I run the script on new WD 12TB drive using USB caddy with following statement: /dev/sdi The process completed, however Unassigned Devices is not allowing me to format the drive. Previously, before running preclear script, UD showed format button. Right now there is only mount button that does nothing. UD is not showing any size of the drive. It is also set to destructive mode. I did not see any errors during preclear process, my questions are: 1. Should I run the script again with -A flag? 2 Format drive using console/terminal comman
  9. Upgraded from 6.5.2 to 6.7.2. OS loaded and everything seemed fine until I played something through Kodi on my HTPC. Videos played for about 10 seconds and stopped. I tried multiple videos with the same results. I played through Plex on XBOX One and there were no issues. I checked on another PC. Tower was not longer visible under Network, however I was able to browse shares when I specified IP address. Rebooting Tower, HTPC and PC did not solve the problem. I had to revert to 6.5.2 and network issues disappeared.
  10. I created this script due to the fact that I was slowly running out of space on my unRaid box, The script allows for archiving optimized versions. Please read the article on my blog Python script will help you archive plex dvr recordings. Plex dvr is a welcomed addition to this great media server. However, before you start recording your favorite show, you should be aware that recordings can take a lot of space on your server. Plex saves the files as Transport Stream with the extension “ts”. On average one hour show will take about 6 GB of space. If you plan to record m
  11. Is it possible to have more than one instance of the openvpn-as docker running at the same time? Default udp port is 1194. Can you assign different ports for the second instance and would it be reflected in .ovpn profile file? Thanks
  12. I received ECC memory from Kingston (2x16GB) and I have to say installation was not that straight forward as I thought it would be. At some point I thought I have a defective RAM module or something is wrong with motherboard. I put first module (bank 1) and there were no issues with booting. Memory was recognized. Now I put the second one (bank 2) and to my surprise I got the error message that memory is not installed. This is exactly the same message that I saw with registered memory I had before. I swapped the memory modules (bank 1) and still error. I removed the memory that I k
  13. Thanks for the article. It looks like it might be the issue. Anyway. I requested RMA from Supermicro and it was approved. I will be shipping the motherboard next week. I also ordered memory that should be compatible with Intel Xeon CPU. It's pretty hard to find and based on other people reviews and experiences there should be no hiccups this time. I purchased the memory directly from Kingston. You have other resellers on Newegg and Amazon, but beware that most likely all of them buy these modules directly from Kingston and than they will mail it to you. You can search
  14. I have a new server running right now, but unfortunately I was not able to install the memory I bought. Every time I put the either 8GB module in memory bank I was getting error message "Memory not installed PEI-Intel Reference Code Execution ...55" . I was not even able to get to BIOS. Motherboard was not responsive. I took out 4GB non-ECC memory from HTPC and put it into server and bingo everything works. I checked in BIOS and motherboard should recognize ECC automatically. So disappointed. I had to return it to Newegg. I'm not sure what to do. ASRock has a short list of compatible RAM, but
