  1. By the way, I found a repository of old PFSense images and iso's. Kinda hard to find.... https://repo.ialab.dsu.edu/pfsense/ Goes back to 2.4.4 all iterations.. Cheers tollmanz
  2. All, I have been backing up my PFSense VM for a while now and just stumbled into a situation where I need to restore a backup. Should I use rsync to sync them back to production after shutting down the PFSense instance? Running an Unraid server (latest) and use the auto_vm_backup script. The backup has 3 directories: NVRAM XML IMG ...with various files in each..... I think though that I am having permission, ownership and rights issues. I did the restore of the xml and libvirt files using rsync: rsync -a --no-o /mnt/user/backups/auto_vm_backup/_07_Jul_2021/xml/* /etc/libvirt/qemu/* rsync -a --no-o /mnt/user/backups/auto_vm_backup/_07_Jul_2021/img/* /mnt/user/system/libvirt/* ...but had to use the "CP" to copy over the .pf files since when I used: rsync -a --no-o /mnt/user/backups/auto_vm_backup/_07_jul_2021/nvram/* /etc/libvirt/qemu/nvram/* ...it didn't work. Has anyone attempted this with rsync? should I use a different set of switches- a?v?z? I did note that as a final step in the backup process it runs a: chmod -R 777 $dir ...which alters the permissions etc. When I used the above I restarted the PFSense instance and nothing changed (am attemptiong to move the PFSense version back to ver. 2.5.1 from 2.5.2 since it has dynamic dns issues) This is an interesting alternative but would need to find the version 2.5.1 iso in order to implement since the backups include the XML file. Any help > direction to head in> or previous experience is appreciated. TIA toolmanz
  3. Well I solvd it. Not using the client from NOIP at all. Added a rule to PFSense router .... easy peasy .... thanks to all and the NOIP support team. Cheers toolmanz
  4. I put in a support ticket into NOIP - they suggested that I avoid the problems with GCC errors. I added a NOIP rule to my PFSense router ..... problem solved!๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks to all toolmanz
  5. Can anybody tell me or provide a step by step on how to install a compiler on Unraid? My setup: Dell R710 server with Unraid latest; Usual assortment of dockers; Nextcloud, Sonarr, Radarr ..... 48 Gb memory and 12 cores/24 threads Runs well and haven't had a major problems - except those of my own making ๐Ÿ˜.... I use a reverse proxy using a service called "NO-IP" to handle the redirections. And when my ISP graciously changes my IP - all my proxies don't work. I want to install their Linux Dynamic Update Client (DUC) on the server to periodically check that the IP address hasn't changed (my dumb ISP just can't seem to keep my ip static .....๐Ÿคฌ I have the NOIP package etc. but whenever I try to run make install it tells me: sudo make install sudo: make: command not found I assume this means I don't have gcc or some such not installed. Tried everything with no joy.... If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Thats the last step before getting the client installed .....๐Ÿ˜ญ Thanks in advance for any feedback or suggestions..... I also posted at: Cheers toolmanz
  6. Ya, I found that but it requires you to install it first - according to the docker entry. thanks for responding toolmanz
  7. All, I have been fiddling with this for long enough and wanted to reach out and see if someone could offer some guidance: My setup: Dell R710 server with Unraid latest; Usual assortment of dockers; Nextcloud, Sonarr, Radarr ..... 48 Gb memory and 12 cores/24 threads Runs well and haven't had a major problems - except those of my own making ๐Ÿ˜.... I use a reverse proxy using a service called "NO-IP" to handle the redirections. And when my ISP graciously changes my IP - all my proxies don't work. I want to install their Linux Dynamic Update Client (DUC) on the server to periodically check that the IP address hasn't changed (my dumb ISP just can't seem to keep my ip static .....๐Ÿคฌ Here is the link for install instructions but they are not helpful. https://www.noip.com/support/knowledgebase/installing-the-linux-dynamic-update-client-on-ubuntu/. I follow the instructions and get the client downloaded and thats fine. This is the list of install steps: 1. cd /usr/local/src/ 2.wget http://www.noip.com/client/linux/noip-duc-linux.tar.gz 3. tar xf noip-duc-linux.tar.gz 4. cd noip-2.1.9-1/ 5. make install The stumbling block is #5 "MAKE INSTALL". I go to the CLI in Unraid and issue: sudo make install And this is the response: sudo make install sudo: make: command not found I thought I had installed GCC (I am assuming that is what it is looking for, thru Nerd Tools, various gcc dockers .....) Nothing seems to work. Is there something I'm not seeing or doing? If anyone has some experience with this or similiar could you provide a direction to head in to make this thing work? Thanks in advance .... very appreciated. I will post this with "NO-IP" support as well. Cheers toolmanz
  8. Oh forgot to add the highwater mark is 70% on disk 2. Does that trigger changes in unraid that cause the system to change where the files are stored? toolmanz
  9. This is a pick of the shares currently. As expected. I checked out the contents of each one and they are as expected with the shares that are below. So no issues to be concerned with? Cheers toolmanz
  10. Thanks. I should know to do this - I've done it before. Doh! ๐Ÿ˜ต Ok I will upload the zip file. Attached Thanks toolmanz tower-diagnostics-20210422-1512.zip
  11. I have an unraid instance running on a Dell R710 server. It has 5 disks of various sizes plus the 8Tb parity disk. I recently started getting a warning on the size of one of the disks that it was around 75% full. The main screen bears that out. That's ok - but I have a disk with 4Tb that hasn't even been touched - it remains empty. Does this represent a problem? Are there settings that distribute disk space evenly over my 5 disks? Kinda lost here. Is there a direction I should look into to find out what the problem is. Any help is appreciated. Thanks toolmanz
  12. Thanks very much for this ..... I have added it to my Sonar. Cheers toolmanz
  13. I have been having issues with video's encoded with EAC-3. Is there any way to restrict files to avoid EAC-3 files if it is in the file name? This, I think, was available a while ago and it is now gone..... Thanks Toolmanz
  14. Ran across this post regarding using tmp in transcoding....might be helpful. Cheers
  15. What are you using as your Nvidia plugin? I am using the ich777 plugin which was updated yesterday. I had to remove the plex docker settings related to transcoding, remove the docker and reinstall it. That solved it for me with assistance from other users of course. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Cheers Toolmanz
  16. I do understand the complexity of doing system updates for a wide variety of client systems. The frustration is that I have to reboot the server and my clients only provide me a very narrow window of opportunity to reboot. I have a Dell R710 server and the transcode function has been working just fine all along through a few updates except for the last 2. I suspect its the new nvidia inclusions in 6.9 that are at the centre of the problems. I did move over to a new new nvidia plugin by ich777. (perhaps that is a suspect since it is all that has changed). I suspect that is the problem. Just going to leave transcoding off for now and see how things go. Also, couldn't get my hands on the release notes for 6.9.1 and since there is a 6.9.1 so close after the 6.9 release tells me they have a serious problem they are trying to fix. So searched again and found this: "ich777 will need to update his driver plugins for the new kernel, users that rely on Nvidia, iSCSI, DVB, Mellanox (and maybe more) plugins should keep that in mind before updating". I'm sure they will fix it in the fullness of time. Now on to Sonarr and Swag dockers to fix their problems. ๐Ÿ™„ Cheers toolmanz
  17. Really not impressed with the updates they keep providing. The last 2 have broken the system ..... Plex and Emby both halted if you use transcoding for your media. It seems to have a problem with transcoding if you have it installed. Just delete the containers for Emby and/or Plex - BUT NOT THE IMAGE - and reinstall without the transcode portion of the settings. Both back up and running .....a-g-a-i-n .... Toolmanz
  18. If you have DelugeVPN you can flow it through that as your proxy. Don't know if you need to since NZB's are pretty much "encrypted" anyway. Cheers
  19. Ok so I'm back with Emby and Plex. Emby - just deleted the transcoding portion and updated. The docker disappeared (not sure what that was about). Just reinstalled the docker from the same repo. Fixed. Plex - not so easy. Deleted the transcoding portion and updated. The docker disappeared. Reinstalled the container from same repo (new version installed which was a bit different than the previous one). Couldn't play anything - it couldn't find the media files. Had to go into Plex libraries set up and change the directory to the correct one. Fixed. All good now. toolmanz
  20. Just a quick update - containers wouldn't start because I have a couple of nvidia graphics cards set up to do transcoding. Release Notes: This provided a clue ....eliminated the transcode part and containers are up....just chasing down a problem with access to the media files. More later.....
  21. I seem to remember some mention of this in the release notes.....lets go and have a look. This is done in order to run my PFSense router on my server. Possible????
  22. Last several lines of the syslog ......note the last line. ๐Ÿ˜ 
  23. Folks, Is there anyone else that has run into this problem. All of the dockers work "except" the media service dockers. Start the container and I get execution error - bad parameter???? Not a lot to go on ....logs for Plex and Emby contain no clues either. Just once I'd like to have an update go smoothly. On to the Plex and Emby forums I guess .....๐Ÿ™„ Thanks in advance toolmanz
