    chmod and chown issues

    I used ssh (root) to move some files, and file permissions ended up messed up, so when I tried to run an rsync backup script, I had issues. 'docker safe new permissions' takes hours to run on my array, and I only needed the permissions of one share changed. 'chmod 777 *' didn't work. Failed with an 'invalid option' error. But 'chmod 777 1*' and then 'chmod 777 2*' and then 'chmod 777 A*' and then 'chmod 777 B*' etc etc etc worked fine. chown, same exact behavior. 'chown -R nobody:users *' failed with an 'invalid option' error. 'chown -R nobody:users A*' B* C* D* etc etc etc worked fine. What did I do wrong?

    6.6.6 high sysload, diags unable

    High-Water, 750gb min free, automatically split as required, include all disks, export nfs private r/w to the other unraid server, export smb private with only me having r/w access. ETA I just manually cp'd the rest of /appdata with zero issues, I presume my use of recursive verbose on the initial command with the 99,999,999 deep plex directories is what blew the system up.

    [Support] Linuxserver.io - Unifi-Controller

    Had to do the set-inform thing from the command line on two of my APs, but aside from that, the changeover to the new container seems to have gone reasonably smoothly.
  4. I'm at 6.6.6 and have been for a while. Today I had an issue where the GUI became unresponsive, and then the shell did. There have been no updates to plugins or docker containers in the last three or four days, and everything has been running OK until tonight. Last thing I did was: # cp -Rv /mnt/disks/ssd/* /mnt/user/backups/ssd-3-4-19 largely in order to backup my 'appdata' directory. This command ran fine for hours (appdata is huge thanks to Plex's inefficiency) and, when I came back to check on it, the shell was fozen (^C had no effect) and the GUI was too. I was able to ssh in a second time and 'htop' would not work (blank screen after execution). Another ssh session, 'top' wouldn't work, blank screen. Another ssh session, 'uptime' showed a sysload of 49 across the board. 'ps -ef | more' hung (waited 10 minutes and it didn't display anything). Now 'reboot' has also hung, I got the system going down message but the system is still powered on and I can still ssh in (GUI is inop, array is down). At this point I'm going to simply cross my fingers and pull the plug, and cancel the subsequent parity check. 'diagnostics' also had no effect, I waited almost 20 minutes and it never completed.

    XFS, encryption, questions

    I have never even thought of this. I will have to look into this more. I have often feared what would happen if one of my primary application disks failed, never even thought of putting it in the array so it is protected.

    XFS, encryption, questions

    Here's a dumb question, for which I think I already know the answer, but I'm going to ask anyway. Once all other disks in the array have been converted to encrypted volumes, is there any necessary action to take on the parity drive(s)? IE, can they remain their default partition format of GPT, or do they need to be encrypted also?

    [Plug-In] unBALANCE

    Something doesn't look right, but I can't put my finger on it 😆
  8. Thank you, I sure will. I've got 60 hours left on a data move from one disk to the others, so I can convert the final disk in the array to an encrypted volume. So in a couple of days I'll have one more stop/start cycle to do, and will report back. Not busy at all. Its running plex, unifi, headphones, sonarr, and sab. Right now the load average is hovering around 8-9 because of the huge rsync job, but its usually between 1-2 if sab or sonarr is busy, and less than 1 when its idle doing nothing. i7-2600 with 16gb ram.
  9. Yes, just stopping the Recycle Bin, not actually shutting down the server. I'll update, thanks!
  10. Manually stopping the Recycle Bin hangs the GUI. Running 'diagnostics' from the shell prompt hangs. login as: root root@'s password: Last login: Wed Feb 27 05:40:10 2019 from Linux 4.18.20-unRAID. root@ffs2:~# cd / root@ffs2:/# ls bin/ dev/ home/ lib/ mnt/ root/ sbin/ tmp/ var/ boot/ etc/ init@ lib64/ proc/ run/ sys/ usr/ root@ffs2:/# diagnostics Starting diagnostics collection...

  11. How do I do that from the command line? Usually I can still ssh into the machine, its just the GUI that totally goes tits up.
  12. The only one that isn't up to date is Dynamix System Stats, and that's because both servers are running 6.6.6 and not the beta.
  13. OK, thanks, good call. Its in the middle of a 90+ hour copy from one disk to another so I can finally convert all disks to encrypted volumes, but when its done with that I will stop the recycle bin and attempt to stop the server. Assuming it doesn't work, and it still hangs, the GUI freezes completely and thus I cannot run diags to post. Last time it happened, I ssh'd in and ran 'tail /var/log/syslog' and the last few entries were typical stuff not indicative of any errors. I haven't had unraid fail to shut down since the 5.x days (when a hard reset was the only way I could do it, literally) but not this has become worrisome again.
  14. Anytime I try to stop my server, it hangs at "Stopping Recycle Bin" in the bottom line of the web GUI, where information is displayed. Only thing that works at that point is a 'reboot' issued from the shell, which of course then spawns a parity check.

    XFS, encryption, questions

    Is there a way to change the filesystem to an encrypted one on disks outside the array, ie, those mounted with Unassigned Devices? I have an SSD for docker use, and a spinner for scratch/downloads, and would like to encrypt both.
