  1. TL;DR - Windows VM won't start, diagnostics attached. Long ago, I had the USB controller passed thru to the VM, but it constantly quit working, and I'd have no mouse/keyboard control, so I'd have to restart the VM, which usually didn't work for long. Eventually, I quit fighting it, and just passed the dongle to the VM. At one point, to upgrade the version of windows, I didn't have enough space, so I passed thru an external SSD, which all worked fine. However, if I disconnect the SSD, the VM won't start. I updated to the latest version of unraid, and was able to get the VM to start with the SSD passed thru, but now, even with that, I simply cannot get the VM to start at all. I can't find anything in my logs to explain it, so I'm asking for help. In an ideal world, I'll be able to just pass thru the USB controller again, to allow me to plug in the SSD when I want, but not be required to, and the USB dongle will just continue to work, and all will we right with the world. However, just getting the VM to start will be a big step forward. thanks for any help you can provide. media-diagnostics-20210816-1210.zip
  2. I tried adding an nzb to SABnzb tonight, and it won't download. I went to settings, and tested my server settings (which seem to have worked when it last downloaded on Friday), and they fail. I get [Errno 99] Address not available Check for internet or DNS problems I've restarted SAB, tried news-us.newsnetserver.com, news.newsnetserver.com, ssl, not ssl, and nothing seems to connect. I've searched for episodes in Sonarr and it searched fine, so the internet connection seems to be okay. I suspect a newsnetserver issue, but wanted to ask here if anyone has seen this or has any ideas on how to further troubleshoot
  3. I never setup such a connection (that I remember), and do not have any disks physically located in that machine which are not assigned already. I only started receiving warnings about this location yesterday, after updating Unassigned Drives. When I went to the plugin, I could see nothing there, as I no longer have any extra disks in that machine. Given I have no extra disks, and currently have no need for unassigned devices, I removed the plugin, then rebooted, so I can't go check again. Hopefully this removes this error, and if I ever need to use another device, I'm hopeful the UD plugin will guide me through this remote thing at that time. thanks again for your help
  4. It seems I'm being encouraged to do so... I only became aware of any of this when I started getting errors emailed to me yesterday, about /mnt/disks/Backup, which I never setup, and don't really understand. I just want to get everything working again, the best way possible. thanks Meh, I just uninstalled Unassigned Devices for now. Hopefully that fixes my errors.
  5. I appreciate the help. I don't believe I need/want to mount remote shares. The previous functionality was just fine, and I've not seen anything that makes me thing I need to change; other than the post I quoted, which seems to indicate I DO have to change something. I don't know the benefits or disadvantages of using remote shares, or changing to use legacy (which is generally not the ideal solution to many issues I've dealt with in the past). Assuming it's "best" to use the new system, it's unclear what exactly this means. What new mount point, how does one set up this new thing, where and what exactly in Dockers and VM mappings needs changed?? I've attached the diagnostics, and again, very much appreciate your help making some kind of change, someplace, and understanding what that actually means. media-diagnostics-20201210-0959.zip
  6. What are remote shares, why would I want or not want them, and what might be the advantages of using the new system (and changing all my dockers and VM mappings) vs just changing to using the legacy mount point compatibility? I've begun getting errors in the morning with "fstrim: /mnt/disks/Backup: FITRIM ioctl failed: No such file or directory" the syslog has this line in it "Dec 9 14:57:35 media unassigned.devices: Successfully mounted '/dev/sdb2' on '/mnt/disks/Backup'." I don't intentionally have any disk called backup, so I'm not sure what has caused this, nor exactly how to fix it. Also, if the best practice is to change the docker and VM mountings to the new mount point, what exactly would that look like? I'm really not sure what would need changed, so this is all very confusing to me. thanks for any guidance!!
  7. I got en email yesterday morning with the subject line - cron for user root /sbin/fstrim -a -v | logger &> /dev/null and the message is - fstrim: /mnt/disks/Backup: FITRIM ioctl failed: No such file or directory The only thing I think I may have changed in the last few days was updating the unassigned devices plugin (but may have updated a docker also). I'm not really sure where to look for an issue, as the SSD Trim plugin has been installed and I've not messed with it for a LONG time, maybe years. I don't believe I have, nor should have, a disk called Backup. I have a share called Backup, set to use the cache, but not exclusively. Diagnostics attached. thanks for any help. media-diagnostics-20201210-0959.zip
  8. Thanks again. I originally had passed only 2 cores to windows, but it seems unraid doesn't quite honor that (maybe I'm mistaken), so i just unpinned everything. I feel like this might be an issue with the virtio-win-0.1.189-1 version I'm using, but I also don't know enough to know if that's valid, or what to do about it, other than try installing other versions and testing, but that seems quite a bit of work for a slightly maybe solution. Hopefully people that actually understand how this all works have some ideas on what I can try next.
  9. Thanks, but I did that already. I am able to pass the entire controller to windows just fine. That is not an issue, and I don't believe I need any help doing that. What I am having trouble with is Windows not handling this controller properly, working for a short time, then failing until I delete the USB controller in windows. This worked fine until the windows VM is rebooted, then I need to perform this process again, which is much more difficult to do without a working mouse or keyboard in windows (because the controller isn't working after a few minutes.)
  10. yes. thats how it was set when it used to work. I included that screenshot in the first post. That does pass the whole controller, but once in windows, it 'break' and stops working until/unless I delete the USB device in windows. That's the actual problem I'm trying to resolve. I'm able to pass the entire controller fine, but it doesn't work in Windows.
  11. Does anyone have any idea where I can go for help on this issue? I'd really like to get it resolved. Thanks
  12. I have been digging some more. I discovered a few things. I had pinned the controller with syslinux.cfg prior to the plugin being merged into unraid, so when I tried to remove it in the system devices, it wouldn't remove. I removed it from both VM configs, but it wasn't until I manually removed it that I could actually see the usb devices connected to it. unraid showed the logitech dongle and a hard drive I had plugged into this controller. I unplugged the hard drive and unraid stopped showing it. I rebooted unraid. I updated system devices to bind the controller again and rebooted. i started the vm, and it did not recognize the logitech, nor the hard drive when i plugged it in. I shut down the vm. I went to system devices and unbound the controller again, and rebooted. I edited the vm and checked the logitech dongle and hard drive, which where presented to me as usb devices, and there were no "other pci devices" listed. I booted the vm, and it shows the hard drive and the usb device in device manager, and everything works. So, the ports and devices work fine in windows, but I just cannot bind the whole controller for some reason. I could live with this, but the ability to unplug and plug hard drives on the fly, and have windows recognize that was a much better solution, and I'd much rather have that work properly. Thanks again for all help!
  13. I have an asmedia USB controller that used to work fine, but now, it just won't work at all. It worked fine for at least a year. Then, about a year ago, I noticed I could no longer reliably control my windows vm with my keyboard/mouse. I messed about trying to resolve, but just ended up rebooting the VM until it would work again. Later (recently) I discovered there's a yellow triangle under universal serial bus controllers in device manager in the windows vm. it's next to the asmedia eXtensible 3.0 driver. I deleted this, then scanned for new hardware, and it populated a generic usb controller, and immediately installed the driver for the keyboard/mouse, and would also recognize any hard drive plugged in. The obvious issue with this, is that I can't do any of this fixing without a keyboard or mouse installed, so I have to remote desktop into the machine to 'fix' it. This isn't ideal, for various reasons. So, today, i decided I'm going to figure this out! I installed what appeared to be the most current driver for asmedia usb, and now it just doesn't work at all. There is no fixing now, and I have no keyboard or mouse in the VM. i suspect it should not be this hard, and that I'm doing something wrong. I'm out of ideas. can anyone PLEASE, PLEASE help me figure this out? media-diagnostics-20201129-1808.zip
  14. I tried installing that plugin 3 times, but had ZERO luck. I downloaded the python v26 and v27 (I think, they are the only 2 offered on the plugin page), but after installing, neither one showed as a plugin in deluge. Oh well, it'd be nice to have it work, but I have probably spent 5 times more time trying to automate this, than what it would take to just do it manually every time. I'll just set it up in Deluge again, in the normal settings, and maybe one day it will just start working properly for me. thanks for the guidance.
  15. I am using binhex's sonarr and deluge dockers. What I'm trying to do is have a torrent automatically delete once a seeding ratio has been reached. Setting the seed ration in the indexer setup in Sonarr seems to pause the torrent in deluge, but does not delete it. Setting the seed ratio in deluge also pauses it, even though I have the box checked for remove, it doesn't remove. Am I doing it wrong, or is this just not possible?
