  1. Looking forward to the upgrade. Lots of great new features. I've been bit running RC code before so I'm hoping for the general release soon
  2. Thx for looking at it. I don't shut down my systems too often. For now, when I eventually need to, I'll just make sure to shut down my unraid first.
  3. Shutdown my Synology. All the syno share status dots turned grey. Told the array to stop. My remote unraid went to an UNMOUNTING state. A minute later, the first syno mount did too. Let it sit here for a couple of minutes, collected diag file ending in 1724. Powered the syno back up. As soon as the NAS was online, the NFS share dots turned green and they all changed to show MOUNT. My remote unraid went back to showing UNMOUNT. Collected another diag file ending in 1730 Remounted the shares Started my array unraid-diagnostics-20220409-1724.zip unraid-diagnostics-20220409-1730.zip
  4. My rsync only runs between midnight and 8 AM. Interesting that there are additional log entries at 10 PM. I'm open to suggestions if there is a better way to push a duplicate copy of specific directories between A and B. I want to retain my file structure and purge out anything that no longer exists locally. This is my cmd line. rsync -hlrtv --progress --partial --append --delete-after --stop-at 08:00 /mnt/user/source/ /mnt/remotes/dest/ Come to think of it. The IP you show in the logs is my Synology. It does a rsync push to the unraid. Perhaps those are all the spam log entries you are noticing. Again, open to a better method if there is one. Good to know. I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for 6.10 to go GA, and not be RC. The shutdown was last week. I'll shutdown my Syno and get a new diagnostic while trying to stop the array.
  5. I know this is an older post I'm circling back on, but I think there may still be an issue. I have a Synology NAS that I have created NFS mount points to from unRAID via UD. I had a planned power outage last week and I shut down my Syno first. When I went to stop the array on my unraid, it hung there with the dancing bars. UD was showing my top Synology NFS mount as "UNMOUNTING". It also showed all the points as offline. (No green dot) It remained like this for 5 minutes or so until I powered on my Synology. At which point everything unmounted and the array stopped. unraid-diagnostics-20220409-1306.zip
  6. I have 2 unRAID servers. One locally and one remote. I use Wireguard between the two and Unassigned Devices to create a mount point from my local to remote server. I started getting read errors on a disk at the remote location so I powered it off so someone local could look at a few things for me. Shortly after the power off, I lost WebUI access to my local unRAID. Everything else worked, SSH, dockers, shares, etc. In looking at my syslog, there were repeated attempts to connect to my remote mount point. As soon as I had the remote unRAID powered on, my WebUI access was restored. This all leads to a few questions/thoughts/comments. I love Unassigned Devices, but is there a better way? The reason I say this is that I also have mount points from unraid to my Synology. If I power off my Synology before I unmount the shares, my unraid server fails to stop the array until the Synology is back online. (I recently tested this as I had a planned power outage and was shutting things down beforehand.) OK. I guess I really only had one question. Is there a better method to creating remote mounts that when the remote/external server(s) is offline my local unraid continues to run normally. My Synology mounts are for Plex backups and a music share. My remote unRAID mount is to push backups offsite via a rsync script. I would prefer to have full local functionality if either my remote server or Syno were off.
  7. Can you set them to pass through and spin up a virtual Windows machine that can read them? Or do you by chance have an external enclosure that you can put them into and read them off your machine? My initial thought was the Windows Mirror as well, but you have proven that wrong. Aside from putting them into another Windows system and transferring the data that way, the only additional thing I can think of is taking a 4TB USB drive back to your original home and transferring the data to this USB drive. Preferable formatted in something that UD and Windows will like. One more thought, if the mirror pair is identical, you could try converting one to basic and leave the other one alone. And if you are really concerned about data loss and have a spare drive laying around, you could play with the conversion on that spare drive and see if UD could read it.
  8. I apologize if this has been discussed before. I searched but only found one thing semi close to what I was searching for. And this could be a user education moment for me too. unRAID 6.9.2 UD 2022.01.03 (at the time) UD+ 2021.12.12 A little history: I had a planned power outage in my area, so before the power went out I stopped all my dockers and all but one VM. This VM was server DNS. I also spun down my HDD's as the running VM is on a NVMe drive. Power went out and the UPS estimated 45 minutes of run time. Around the 25 minutes left, I no longer needed that last VM and powered it off. I also initiated a stop to my array. The GUI sat at the dancing bars for 10+ minutes. I refreshed my screen and noticed that UD was trying to unmount the first of four NFS mounts to my Synology NAS. My Synology is on a UPS as well and was still up and running at this point. The NFS mounts are to share disks/directories between my unRAID and Syno NAS. These shares are used for backups and to my Plex docker. Also for backups (off box) and a music share. The music is on my Syno and Plex is on unRAID. I know unRAID UPS cut out before the array stopped as a parity check started when the power was restored. Question(s): Is there a way to force the NFS unmount after a set about of time so I can get my unRAID shutdown quicker? I just learned of the Tunable timeout of 330. Seeing as these are disk shares, is it OK to set this to 0? Would it make a difference during the shutdown of my unRAID? Lastly, the power outage was 4 days ago. Not sure if the diagnostics would yield anything at this point, but happy to collect it if it would have history that far back. TIA
  9. Still getting the same warning message, but rolling back got my WebUI back. TY!
  10. I keep getting the warning about the following files/folders may not be accessible to SMB shares. While I was setting up Nextcloud, I had the SMB share set to yes. However I have since changed this to no. I've tried enabling it again, and disabling. I even changed the permissions of the root directory for nextcloud to match my other shares. I have run Docker Safe New Perms several times as well. I cannot seem to figure out how to clear this warning. Any ideas? Other than just excluding the directory from Fix Common Problems?
  11. I ran a test backup after the updates to Unassigned Devices and no other changes. The backup completed just fine. The only difference this time was that I powered off my VM manually vs. letting the script do it. I want to test this more as it appeared to copy my previous backup file to the current date and then actually backup the VM to the new dated file as well. It definitely took longer and the logs read funny. I/E: (My recollection of the logs, I don't have access to them at the moment.) Copying backup VMimage_01-31-2020 to VMimage_02-05-2020 started. Copying backup VMimage_01-31-2020 to VMimage_02-05-2020 completed. Copying VMimage to VMimage_02-05-2020 started. Copying VMimage to VMimage_02-05-2020 completed. The good news though is that it finished with no errors.
  12. Sweet. I'm all in for the change. I'll also test my backups again since the update to the Unassigned Devices plugin. I'll also create a new unRAID share and test backing up there. Ideally I would like the VM backups off box though.
  13. I like the cleaner file structure, but would not want to lose the ability to clean up my older backups. Thinking out loud here. Could you take a listing of the folders within the backup directory and convert that to a date or variable to use? Say the backup location is /mnt/user/backups and then the VM Backup app creates dates as directories from there. I know within Linux you can get a listing of files or directories that are older than X days. Is there a way to generate this list on the fly and then purge out old directories that are older than X? Within the app the user can define the value for X.
