  1. Yes, they use the same port. Why was I able to run them together before without changing anything? Seems like something has changed.
  2. If anyone is able to help though, I'm experiencing a strange networking problem bringing my docker containers back online. Before restore, I was able to run containers that used VNC, but now I seem to be getting some strange port conflicts. I have a VM running, with VNC enabled, and now any dockers using VNC redirect to it. I'm also unable to run multiple dockers with VNC, like binhex-crusader and binhex-preclear. I get an "execution error", and I can't see the logs showing anything useful.
  3. Thanks @Squid I managed to get everything restored. I used UFS Explorer Standard Recovery and ReclaiMe Pro to recover my files. For anyone who might want to do this in future, using UFS Explorer for each drive individually (Not as RAID) works fine, as the virtual share filesystem is split out across the actual separate filesystems of the disks. I restored each disk separately, to another location, then recombine the filesystem manually. I'm starting to copy them back to the array now.
  4. As I suspected, there was a syntax error in my command, in particular with the '-delete' placement. It should always be at the end or will ignore the filter and assume deletion of everything. I find this pretty stupid, but it is what it is, I should have checked the small print. So I'm the stupid one. Ironically, what seems really lost was my 'backup' share that I had setup. This was intended to be the source of a clone to my old decommissioned server, when that was brought online as a backup server later this week. I'm trying to restore this, as the array has not been overwritten. Unfortunately, this happened first. As it turns out, after more careful review, most of what is lost can be replaced or regenerated. The 'system' and 'appdata' is basically lost, and locked onto the cache drives in btrfs, which I'm trying to reconstruct. I noticed that all my VM and Docker configurations disappeared from the UI. I'm reconstructing the cache drives, and trying to pull the file structure off it. I'm having some success using recovery tools. ReclaiMe Pro and UFS Recovery seem to be doing pretty well so far, but we'll see. Saying that, is there any way I can restore my docker settings using a backup (Meaning what I pull of)? Also, for example in a normal backup/restore scenario, how do I backup/restore 'system' data and configuration?
  5. I'm not using a Mac anymore, hence why I wanted rid of these files. I didn't have an issue with this before, not a random command, but this is very odd behaviour I think. I'm still pretty shocked this happened, I think it may have been a syntax error. Hey thanks, I'm currently looking at: https://www.ufsexplorer.com/raise-data-recovery-xfs.php I think this is an older version though, so best I scan with the newest. Thanks for your help.
  6. Hi, if anyone can help me please I would be appreciative. I just got my Unraid server up and running and everything has been running pretty sweet for a few weeks. Today, I have attempted to delete the '.DS_Store' and '._.DS_Store' files from my server so I ran a few commands in the unraid terminal. The commands I ran: find . -name '.DS_Store' -type f -delete && find . -name '._.DS_Store' -type f -delete find . -type f -delete -name '.DS_Store' -name '._.DS_Store' I definitely didn't run any other commands, or had any other malicious process running. Luckily I managed to stop the process when I noticed some files had gone. As it is, a bunch of critical stuff got deleted. I'm not sure how this happened, but it seems that a bunch of personal and critical data has been deleted. In a panic, I stopped everything, and rebooted the server. Now it seems as though the system files were deleted also, and the server has come up without any of my VMs or Docker containers present. The array drives are formatted using XFS. Does anyone know how this could have happened using these commands? Does anyone know how I can restore my XFS drives? I've stopped the array and trying to research what to do. I know I should backup, but I had not yet configured a Cloud Backup for this server. It's definitely been high on my list.
  7. I have not tried emulated CPU, but is there any detriment to doing this? I'm trying to build this Win7 VM as a dedicated Steam gaming system, due to Win10 incompatibility with so many games.
  8. I have a Windows 10 VM that I regularly use, and have no problems with it.
  9. I setup the i440 VM without any devices, and that is when the multiple core issue occurs. When I shutdown, add cores and restart, I get the reboot crash loop causing startup repair. I'm glad this isn't a Ryzen-specific issue, but I tried Q35 before, and the installer just hangs every time I do. When using Q35, the Win7 installer starts, and sits at the glowing Windws icon forever. So I cant even get it to install with Q35, not sure why.
  10. Hi, I'm running a Ryzen unraid server, on 6.7.2 I've been encountering a strange issue with my Windows 7 VM, where it wont start with more than 1 core. I setup the VM is a pretty standard fashion, and it would not start installer with more than 1 core (I understand this is a known issue), so I continued with a single core for installation and setup. However, now I cannot even start the VM with more than 1 core enabled. It just hangs and reboots before loading Windows, then the startup repair appears. This continues nonstop. Has anyone encountered this or know a workaround?
  11. I'm having the same issue, when trying to setup a Windows 7 VM. Got everything running, but cannot add more cores, as it hangs immediately and will not boot. Has anyone managed to understand what is happening?
  12. Hi great advice and thanks. Ironically, I was thinking about how to shrink arrays too, so this is much appreciated advice. Don't think I'll be doing it anytime soon though, but it was definitely on my mind. Thanks for this. I currently use all the 3TB disks in a 15TB array on my old (not unRAID) server, but I'm planning to migrate everything to my new unRAID and reuse that as something else. As much storage as possible is what I'd like, until I choose to replace disks with larger ones. 6TB seems a good balance for a while, unless I see some good deals. At this point, I'll probably just add all of my older 3TB disks in, as that will even things out (As if I was using all the 6TB). I've not had any issues with my old disks, as I tend to swap them out every few years before they become an issue (Or if I see errors occurring). I currently backup my most important data to a cloud backup, but I do need to think of a new solution that will incorporate unRAID better. Any advice for an unRAID-integrated backup solution? Any plugins or Apps?
  13. Hi, I have finished building my new unRAID server and I'm setting up my array at the moment. I understand that I can use different size disks in unRAID and it doesnt care, but I am wondering what the best disk configuration for me is? I'm planning to consolidate as many disks into my new server as possible, ideally in a single array. I'd like to maximise the usage of my storage server if possible. I have: 2x 250GB nvme (new, for cache) 4x 6TB disks (new) 5x 3TB disks (from my old server) 1x 2TB (old server) 2x 1.5TB (old server) 2x 1TB (old server) So I have a few questions: - Should I setup the array with 2 parity drives or 1? - Should I use 2x 6TB drives for parity? - Can I remove drives later, when I want to replace with higher capacity? - Should I only create a single array from the largest drives? Will this matter? I'm a new user to unRAID so I'm not sure here.
