  1. The key file needs to be available before emhttp starts. Change your go file to #!/bin/bash cp /boot/config/keyfile /root/keyfile # Start the Management Utility /usr/local/sbin/emhttp &
  2. JPs - Take alook at this post...
  3. hasown - Glad you like it. It even solves the permission issue before it became an issue. Sure makes the go file clean. It's been over a year and it appears only you have tried it. I "obfuscated" the fetch_key script. The IP address, user name, share name and key file name are obscured. Sure it can be hacked, but it's better than plain text. If anyone is interested I'll share it. As stated earlier in this topic, I've got a headless Raspberry Pi Zero W operating as my server.
  4. How to find from the command line, one, if a drive is encrypted, two, if the encrypted drive is on line, three if it's off line because the key was not entered?
  5. I thought I'd share how you can enhanced the go file by reducing the six lines to a single command and it's not by using another script. You can create a tar ball that contains the fetch_key and delete_key scripts. The go file calls the tar command. The tar ball files are extracted and event directories are created. You MUST have a fully functioning auto-start that unlocks using the event directories. This works with FTP or SMB fetch_key scripts. If you have changed the script names (fetch_key, delete_key) or changed the path where you store the scripts (/boot/custom/b
  6. What a great suggestion. I think I am going to try this on my next build. I am going to use an inexpensive Raspberry Pi Zero W loaded with DietPi OS as my remote server. It's non-obtrusive size can be placed anywhere within wi-fi distance. Technically my "DietKeyLimePi" only needs to be available at boot up time. DietPI is an extremely lightweight Debian Jessie OS. It can be configured to be a headless samba server and have SSH capability. Power consumption is under a watt at idle.
  7. John, The GA-P55M-UD2 motherboard "Save BIOS to HD" default is disabled. No need to worry about HPA unless you turn this setting on. PB

    What UPS to Buy

    +1 for APC! Allow me to share my experience with UPSs. I had an APC BX1000G for almost six years. Had maybe three minor power outages in that time. During an outage, it ran for run for 5 minutes, shutdown unRAID and it shutdown shortly after. Never had a problem. Last year the local power vault blew. I was lucky and grateful I had an UPS and surge suppressors! Once the power came back, the UPS didn’t function properly. Repairing it was more money than a new one. I kept my eye out for a good sale and saw a Cyperpower CST135XLU at the local membership warehouse. Very reasonably p
  9. You are correct S80_UK. Stay away from Cyber Power. Stick with APC.
  10. I woke up to see 67 non corrected errors. First monthly parity errors in years! I have V4.7 and would like to upgrade to at least V5 but not with these errors. Nothing in the smart test reports (no errors). I ran another non correcting parity check this time 27 different errors. Third time 6 errors that were different than the first two. I have not run a correcting parity check. I am now running MEMTEST86. How long should I run MEMTEST86? If memory checks out, what next? How do I test controllers? PB
  11. I would stick with APC. I had an APC BX1000G. Was destroyed by a major power surge. I replaced it with a Cyperpower CST135XLU from Costco. Communication with apcupsd is not the same. I have apcupsd programmed to shutdown UnRaid in 5 minutes. The APC unit shut off shortly afterward UnrRaid shuts down, the Cyperpower continues to run after the UnRaid shuts down unitil the battery is discharged.
  12. Try Joe's cache_dirs script It should reduce the time.
  13. Thanks, I know yes is the default. I tuned my system over four years ago and I don't remember the final setting. I thought there may be a way to check.
  14. I am trying to see if Force NCQ disabled has been changed. I caught myself accidentally changing it numerous times instead of Enable spinup groups. Now I don't remember what it was! I am still on 4.7. Currently it's at yes. I have lots of syslogs, is there a way to see what the setting was a week ago? A month ago?
  15. Do any of this directories (folders) display icons within it's folder icon? The system looks one level deeper to determine what to display.
