  1. So I was looking to find a thread about this, but a quick search didn't hit what I wanted... I'm looking at building a new desktop, but my wife needs one too. Out desktops sit side by side. Can I make a single machine, with 2 vms, 2 (or more) monitors, 2 keyboards, 2 mice all physically connected to it? Basically assign vm 1, keyboard 1, mouse 1 to monitor 1 and vm 2, keyboard 2, mouse 2 to monitor 2? And more or less not have them interfere with each other? Im thinking to avoid thin clients and any network lag.
  2. For me, the primary issue was caused by the extended attributes on OS X, specifically by those put in by the program 'Speed Download', which is no longer made ( - states out of business). But I did think that rsync was patched to handle OS X's extended attributes.
  3. I too get the same error. I think my issue is related to the extended attributes of the files. There are couple other threads abt extended attributes causing trouble out there. Example below. I was kind of wondering why not do the "--remove-source-files" flag for rsync when moving them over. when I run rsync -avX --partial --dry-run "/mnt/disk8/" "/mnt/disk9/" from telnet I get lots of errors However when I run rsync -av --partial --dry-run "/mnt/disk8/" "/mnt/disk9/" No errors. I'm thinkin
  4. No screenshot needed - Sorry for the slow response - The Plugin Update Check screen that shows up when you click the button just says "plugin: checking dynamix.plg ..." and never gets anywhere. I was using open dns (via router). Switched to google dns - no difference. The log just says Mar 13 19:15:56 Tower emhttp: cmd: /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/dynamix.plugin.manager/scripts/plugin checkall and sits there. However changing the DNS on the server never seems to stick. It defaults back to my router, which is set to opendns or google dns. It did work i
  5. I'm on 6.1.7, and I click check for updates, it never seems to finish checking. Other times, when it did, it said no updates (shortly after 6.1.8 came out). Any threads or pointers on how to get it to update via the plugin checker (or when I log in via telnet). Little bit of a nuisance needing to travel to the other side of my house a few times to update.
  6. So, I lost my disk settings. I don't have any of the drives assigned. I'm trying to find out which of the two possible disks is my parity, then just assign the rest and rebuild parity. I do not want to lose the data on all the data drives. I've rebooted unraid plenty of times since, trying to get the settings on the usb, and back and such. So no log file. What's the best course of action? Something like - make a mount point, mount /dev/sdX to that, ls the contents? Then after finding which is parity, how to get unraid running again without losing my data? I don't want t
  7. I've often wanted a 'defrag' of folders kind of function- where I had a folder of smaller size at one time, and as I added files it got much bigger. Then when I access that directory all my drives are spinning up (due to configuration). The rebalance is sort of the opposite- but still in the same vein of figuring out how to manage files in a user share.
  8. I might simply allow this app to run on iPad, will look into that for you. +1 I wouldn't mind it fitting my iPad screen a little better. Other than that, works great. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Having trouble getting it to connect. Just gets stuck at "connecting...". Web GUI opens quickly. Rebooted both and still no luck. Where to start troubleshooting this? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Exactly what I was thinking. I have a new disk for a larger parity drive ready to go, but really don't like the idea of an older smaller disk failing while parity is written to the new disk. I was thinking that the couple options would be "easy" to implement and hopefully implemented sooner (sooner than dual parity). Dual parity sounds like a bit more work to implement. I will say that dual parity is needed based on both the size of the disks, and the number. I do hesitate expanding my array without it. I've looked at ZFS and read about bit-rot, but ZFS requires more time to learn than I
  11. I was reading the other thread about removing a disk from the array and that got me thinking. If you have an empty HD slot....(or usb2/3 external?) 1) I would love a way to upgrade a data disk w/o losing parity 2) upgrade a parity disk w/o losing parity Now with parity - I would usually do a parity sync before doing any big changes... Can/could it do a parity check/write parity to two disks at once? i.e. the parity disk and the new parity disk? Then when the that is finished, replace the parity with the new disk. Probably pre clear the old parity and add it to the array. Data
  12. I had the same issue. This thread fixed it for me.
