  1. Hey, so i just discovered this docker and I had a few questions about it. It has a feature that I really like (being able to scan my library and identify which files are in 264 and automatically queue them for transcode to 265). But I'm curious as to how well it does of the transcode job. Right now, I'm using handbrake. I'm in the process of converting a lot of my 4k movies into x265, but I have things such as my RF set to specific settings depending if I'm doing 4k movies or tv shows, etc. I see the ability to set it (Unmanic) to use x265 for transcoding and keep my items mp4, but how well does it do in terms of quality, bitrate, variable framerate, etc? Is it a really good alternative, compared to just manually checking every media file I have, and adding it to my handbrake queue? (Keep in mind, I have about 25,000 pieces of media between my movies and tv shows). Also, when it scans my tv shows, once it identifies a file that needs to be queued for transcode, once the file is transcoded, does it delete the old file and replace it with the new freshly transcoded file? Lastly, I know I can simply add as many /library/***whateverfolder*** and it'll scan all subfolders. But if my plex is set up with the following structure /media/(tv shows, movies, 4k movies, 4k tv shows), couldn't I just set my library path to /media and it would automatically scan all subfolders or do I actually need to create a library path for every subfolder?
  2. So, I'm new to this docker. I've been using the controller through a Windows 10 VM... but I love the idea of having it as a docker instead. As someone else suggested, the only way I could get the controller to adopt my AP's (they were in the adopting/disconnecting loop) was to switch it from bridge to host... which then adopted them immediately, then put it back in bridge mode (the docker that is). What's the biggest differences between bridge and host? What harm would it cause if I left it in host mode? Also, and perhaps it has nothing to do with the docker, but figured I'd ask anyways. I'm having issues with just this docker's web gui being accessible when using a subdomain with port forwarding on my router. If I type in my static ip:randomport (I've assigned this port on my router to forward to the unraid server's ip:unifi web gui port... it loads the web gui no issue, but when I set up a sub domain on godaddy (with https) to forward to my static ip:randomport... it says it can not connect. What would cause it to be accessible when typing in my static IP, but when I use a sub domain to forward to it, it's no longer accessible? I have a lot of subdomains being forwarded to different dockers on my unraid server, and they have no issue. I only have an issue when I try to access unifi via my sub domain forwarding.
  3. I'm way late on my reply, but I finally have time to start working on this again. Anyways, I what you said and got this: ls -al /mnt/user/MediaPlex total 24 drwxrwxrwx 1 nobody users 28 May 21 2018 ./ drwxrwxrwx 1 nobody users 72 Feb 19 11:29 ../ drwxrwxrwx 1 nobody users 92 Sep 14 01:23 4K\ TV\ Shows/ drwxrwxrwx 1 nobody users 4096 Jan 26 18:02 4k\ Movies/ drwxrwxrwx 1 nobody users 255 Aug 6 2018 Anime/ drwxrwxrwx 1 nobody users 4096 Feb 11 11:24 Anime\ Movies/ drwxrwxrwx 1 nobody users 258 Feb 17 16:02 Kids\ Movies/ drwxrwxrwx 1 nobody users 80 Feb 19 09:06 Movies/ drwxrwxrwx 1 nobody users 28 Jan 6 20:23 TV\ Shows/ The save path for /media is /mnt/user/MediaPlex/Movies
  4. I have a chenbro 4U running my unraid server. It has 24 bays in it, in which it would "normally" have 3x LSI 9211-8i, with each card taking 2 SAS cables from the backplanes, blah blah blah, etc etc. I'm wanting to get a 10Gbe NIC and install it in my server, instead of using the 1Gbe. But in order to do that, I have to give up one of my 3 slots, which as we've discovered... are reserved for the 9211-8i's. I'm guessing there is no 9211-16i (I googled, didn't find... though I didn't google very deeply). So, does anyone have any recommendations on a SAS Controller, that will allow for 4 SAS cables rocking 16 hard drives total? I'm fairly certain it won't be that difficult to find a low profile 10Gbe (or high profile) so I'm not too worried about that. Thanks guys.
  5. Hi all, I'm having an issue with my Movies folder from within Radarr. So /media is mapped as /mnt/user/MediaPlex/Movies/ For obvious reasons, MediaPlex is my share folder that Plex uses and within that share is a folder called Movies (I also have my TV Shows folder within MediaPlex share also). Within sonarr I have the exact same map except instead of Movies it's TV Shows. Sonarr finds it's folder completely fine and puts shows in their correct subfolders without issue. Radarr on the other hand says that access to the path is denied. It can't find any movies in the Movies folder nor can it import movies. Any ideas?
  6. Still curious as to why two out of three of my SSD's are registering as 3GB/s instead of 6GB/s. That part, I'm unsure of.
  7. Yea, I had already realized I misread Filezilla. Didn't realize it was transferring at MB/s not Mbps. I admitted me being an idiot lol
  8. I have an SSD cache pool. It's running nothing crazy. 2x Samsung 840 EVO 250GB and 1x Samsung 860 EVO 500GB for a total of 1TB of cache space. Now I know that a pool does not equate to Raid 0 speeds. So I'm in no way expecting ~ 3x SSD raid 0 speeds. My main PC is 100% Samsung 970 EVO/Pro NVME drives only. Both my unraid server and my main PC all go through the same switch. It's a 1000MB (1 gig) switch. My server shows it's full duplex and so does my PC. So the question is, why is it when I'm using FileZilla (or even windows explorer) to transfer files either to or from my server, I usually cap at ~ 100Mbps (give or take about 10Mbps). Why aren't I transferring at SSD speeds rather than HDD speeds? My NVME drives are more than fast enough to cap at the SSD's max speeds. And the data I'm transferring to/from is coming off the SSD's. That I'm 100% sure of. To add, when I click on my SSD drives in the cache pool, two out of the three drives says SATA version:SATA 3.1, 6.0 Gb/s (current: 3.0 Gb/s), while the last one says SATA version:SATA 3.3, 6.0 Gb/s (current: 6.0 Gb/s). They are connected directly to the motherboard via SATA cables. EDIT: I lied, the only SSD that is coming in at 6Gb/s is a Crucial MX500 250GB. EDIT #2: I'm an idiot... partially. I just realized Filezilla is reporting it in Megabytes not bits. So I'm getting ~90-110MB/s thus, I'm saturating my 1Gigabit connection properly. And given the SSD's are 6Gbps (600MB/s) drives, I realized I'm capped at my network speed, not drive speed. But that still leaves to question why 2 out of the three SSD's are currently at 3Gb/s instead of 6Gb/s.
  9. I did try that also. I just wanted to post the chkdsk to keep things updated on the thread as I did them. I find it easier to keep good documentation if I report as it as I do it with result. The USB port, I've swapped it from one of the front I/O ports on my chassis to one of the back USB ports directly from the motherboard. Sorry if my responses seemed spammy.
  10. C:\Windows\system32>chkdsk 😧 The type of the file system is FAT32. Volume UNRAID created 7/20/2017 8:38 AM Volume Serial Number is 272B-4CE1 Windows is verifying files and folders... File and folder verification is complete. Windows has scanned the file system and found no problems. No further action is required. 4,018,659,328 bytes total disk space. 196,608 bytes in 3 hidden files. 122,880 bytes in 30 folders. 180,465,664 bytes in 136 files. 3,837,870,080 bytes available on disk. 4,096 bytes in each allocation unit. 981,118 total allocation units on disk. 936,980 allocation units available on disk. So came back with no errors when I ran chkdsk on my pc.
  11. This is happening daily. Basically, my unraid is set to the dark theme, with a handful of dockers installed (Plex, sonarr, radarr, ombi, jackett). Once a day, I go to my unraid dashboard and the theme is completely white. I have a banner saying system notifications have been disabled (i'm unable to reenable at this point unless i restart my whole server). My docker tab completely disappears. I'm unable to stop the array. If I go to tools > Registration, some times it'll say invalid registration, other times it'll have all of my info there. If i go to Update OS, it says my current version is unknown. I recently backed up my entire unraid drive. Formatted the drive and reinstalled unraid, then copied over my share's .cfg files and my super.dat file. Since this, this issue has started happening. The only way to fix it is to do a completely system restart. But I can't even complete a full parity check before this happens at least once within a 24 hour period. tower-diagnostics-20180910-1534.zip
  12. Is anyone else having an issue where once a torrent finishes downloading, it stays in the downloading state @ 100%? The only way to get it to move to seeding is to force a recheck on the file. Any idea's what could cause it or a solution to fixing it?
  13. I recently installed my first parity drive, and since then I'm getting some slow speeds when I pull large files off my unraid server when I move them to a new folder on the server. Parity: 8TB Drive Drive 1: 250GB Drive 2: 2TB Drive 3, 4, 5 and 6: 8TB Drives. My speeds my start out at like 100-110MB/s but will drop down to (on averag) 5MB/sec. Sometimes dropping completely down to 0Bytes and sitting there for a second or two before going back up to 5MB/sec. It will randomly climb back up to 100MB/s, stay there for a few seconds, then fall back down to 5MB/sec. This happens when I use FileZilla to pull files off the server, Windows Explorer to pull files off, put them on or move them to a different folder. Any idea? Or how do I go about trouble shooting this to figure out why they are moving so slow?
  14. So I didn't get it on my Fedora set up, but I went a head and just bought it on Windows 10. Works flawless for everything that the docker couldn't.
