  1. Hi. I am trying to sync a few shares to a Synology box, which sits behind a VPN router. If I VPN into it, I can access the Synology at a local IP (192.168...) but then I can no longer connect to my Unraid box at its local address! It seems I can either connect to one subnet or another, if that makes any sense. Do you have any suggestions for connecting to both machines simultaneously? Am I getting myself confused here? I could swear this used to work.... Using Tunnelblick to connect to my VPN, if that makes any difference. Thanks for any tips!
  2. Thanks for the explanation! So, what's the solution? Explicitly browse the web GUI via http, not https?
  3. Hi, I am using the .ovpn from my provider (NordVPN) and am able to connect, but only if I put the username and password in the VPN_USER and VPN_PASS environments. And credentials.conf in the ovpn directory apparently gets populated by them, the environments overwrite the user/pass on every boot. Question: is there a more secure way to do this? Would rather not have my login details in cleartext on the Docker page... Thanks for any tips!
  4. I know of the "Flash Backup" button under Flash Device Settings. Does it call a particular script? Or does it just zip up the boot drive? Asking since I would like to automate this (create a weekly backup etc .) Thanks!
  5. Oh, I see. Thanks. So more of a cosmetic issue then? Still, not intuitive.
  6. I am seeing a bug in v6.7.1's Dashboard, under the "Array" section. Clicking on any of the "SMART" thumbs-up icons brings up a menu of options: Attributes, Capabilities, Identity - but all the links actually lead to the same page. Looks like the HTML anchor ("#") link is broken, I always get the top of the page... Attaching a screenshot. Please let me know if you need any further info.
  7. Are you the original author of emhttp? Do you still get to do any coding? If so do you do most of it by yourself? Thanks for this slick, powerful OS!
  8. As @itimpi points out, the File Integrity plugin checks on a per-file basis. It gets confused (understandably) by constantly changing files like docker.img, so be sure to exclude those from your checks if you don't want a bunch of false positives. Interestingly if you use BTRFS for your data disks you can do a "btrfs scrub" from the web interface which will provide the same functionality (detect, but not fix corruption). Good question! I think the concept of bitrot keeps many of us data hoarders awake at night. 😄 I don't think it's impossible, but I also think it's pretty rare. Like your friend I have encountered corrupted files before (it's easy to tell with JPG, ZIP etc. - who knows, there might be more) but my hardware (flaky motherboard) and OS (Windows 98 😂) were probably to blame for that. Either way, nothing can replace backups, even if you're using something bulletproof like ZFS you will need them!
  9. Are you sure you got this right? One of the greatest strength of unRAID (in my opinion) is the fact that each disk is a separate file system. So, as I'm sure you've heard before, if more disks fail than you have parity drives, you can still recover data from the remaining disks since they're each an independent file system. Unlike in a RAID5 array, for example, which stripes data across multiple disks. Lose too many, and all your data is toast. But unRAID's independent disks also mean there can be no "automatic" file integrity fix. There is no overarching file system that can locate redundant copies of corrupted files (like it does in BTRFS, for example). So it looks like you can either have one, or the other. I'm no expert on file systems but given the devs' silence on most things related to BTRFS and file integrity, I doubt anything like this is in the pipeline. I'd be happy to be proven wrong, of course 😉
  10. Thanks @johnnie.black! Appreciate you sharing your efforts. The script looks good, a lot better than some of my past bash efforts 😆 You could automate detecting the number of disks using something like: ndisks=`ls -d1 /mnt/disk[0-9]* | wc -l` for i in $(seq 1 $ndisks); do ... Probably overkill, but I always think the less is hardcoded, the better...
  11. Thanks, dude. Is your script publicly available? I have seen a number of scripts for btrfs snapshotting but none unRAID-specific so that would be helpful.
  12. I recently set up my uNRAID 6.7.0 server to use SSL (use SSL/TLS = Auto). I also have my router setup to use OpenVPN. When I VPN into my home network, and try and type my server's IP (192.168.etc) into a browser, I get a SSL certificate warning and cannot proceed... see below. I am assuming this is caused by a conflict between unRAID's SSL certificate and my router's? Any way to mitigate the issue? Before I had SSL turned on, I was always able to use this method... Thanks for any advice!
  13. Yes. That's one of the more powerful features of unRAID IMHO, although it does make BTRFS snapshots more complicated. Would you suggest forcing shares to be on particular disks (as shown here for example) in order to make the snapshot procedure simpler?
