  1. Been using unRAID for a few months now. Currently using it as a media server with Plex and also have a Win10 VM on it. I'll be looking to expand it for IP camera storage with ZoneMinder and for DVR(once I purchase the Plex Pass). I did a lot of searching for an OS that would fit my use cases and unRAID hasn't let me down. Having such a helpful community is wonderful.
  2. First, thanks to SpaceInvaderOne for all the amazing videos! My server is mainly for media storage, but I also have one share that has tons of small files, I think it's like 1.7 million files. So, when trying to search the various media shares(movies, kids movies, new folder, downloads, etc) from the root share for a particular item, it takes an incredibly long time since it's also searching the one share with almost 2 million files. I would like to exclude that share to speed up searches. Is there a way to exclude a share from being listed in the root share? Or a way to mount the share somewhere other than /mnt/user?
  3. I believe this is pretty much in line with my request in the Feature Requests section. Not sure if it would help much, but maybe you can vote or support the feature request to get more visibility for something like this. Hope that helps!
  4. I have the same UPS and haven't had issues with it being detected. I did have an issue getting the server and UPS to shutdown properly so the server would power back on after an outage, but I was able to resolve that by tweaking settings in the NUT plugin. Sharing a post I made about that below in hopes that someone will get use out of it.
  5. UPDATE: I returned one of the ADATA drives and purchased a HP EX920. Both drives will now show up now. I was doing testing on my UPS setup to make sure the server will come back on after a power outage. I have a CyberPower CP1500AVRLCD UPS and am using the NUT plugin for communication. I noticed the UPS was turning off before the server would shut down. This was causing a hard shutdown and the ADATA drive would not show up after powering the server back on, not even in BIOS/UEFI. It also wouldn't show up on subsequent reboots either. I would have to swap the drives between the M.2 slots and boot it back up for both drives to show up again (not convenient!!). I was able to tweak the settings and config files in the NUT plugin to get my desired shutdown sequence in order to avoid this problem. In case anyone was wondering, I effectively ran the Autodetect function in NUT, switched the 'Enable Manual Config Only' option to Yes, then added the two highlighted lines in the screenshot to the ups.conf file. Adding the 'offdelay' instructs my UPS to delay its shutdown for roughly X seconds. This allowed more time for the server to shutdown. The default is 20secs which is simply not enough. I tried adding the same to the ups.conf file when the 'Enable Manual Config Only' option was set to No, but the value would default when the service was started, thus I had to set it to Yes. Below are the settings I'm using for visual reference(I didn't have the service started in the screenshot as I was still testing, I also only had the shutdown time set at 1min for testing purposes as well). Of course, your mileage may vary. Hope that helps someone!

    Custom case icons feature is now available in 6.7.2.
  7. @drkCrix No, I haven't sorted this out. According to the following link, it appears there will be a fix in the Linux 5.3 kernel. I'm not Linux savvy, so I'm not sure how that will play out for unRAID. https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/only-one-of-two-nvme-detected-in-linux-duplicate-subnqn.54480/ I thought the NQN was something configurable by the manufacturer. So, I would blame on ADATA and not Realtek. I could be completely wrong about that though. I contacted ADATA "customer service" (in quotes since it is a joke). Their response email looks completely automated as it starts with "Dear Customer" and doesn't even have the name I entered when filling out the online form to contact them. The email starts out acknowledging I have an issue and then goes right into stating they are here to assist with the return of the product. The email did provide a few generic troubleshooting steps, but had absolutely no mention of the issue I explicitly detailed for them (again, since this is an automated, impersonal email.) I'll try replying to the email to see if that actually gets anywhere. I think I'll probably just return the drives and spent a bit more for another brand.
  8. I just purchased 2 M.2 drives hoping to use them as a cache pool. The UEFI menu will show both drives, but the unRAID web GUI will only list one of the drives. Below is a little about my setup. Motherboard: ASRock X370 Taichi CPU: Ryzen 5 2600 M.2 drives: 2x XPG SX6000 Lite M.2 2280 512GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 3D NAND HBAs: 2x LSI 9207-8i GPU: ATI FireMV 2250 I tested each drive separately and each will be detected in the web GUI in either M.2 slot when installed one at a time. However, unRAID isn't showing both of them when they're both installed, although the UEFI sees both of them. After swapping drives and slots, I removed the GPU thinking it may be some odd PCIe lane allocation issue, but the issue persisted. I also updated from 6.7.0 to 6.7.2. Attached are the diagnostics. I looked through syslog.txt and it looks to be an issue with both drives using the same NVMe Qualified Name (NQN). I'm researching this path at the moment, but hope someone with more experience can weigh in with a possible solution. Any ideas? elysium-diagnostics-20190713-0247.zip
  9. I asked a Dev over on this topic about custom, user-created case icons. The feature is in development.

    @Mex, Is it possible for users to create their own icons, drop them in some directory, and then use the webUI to set the icon? If so, where are the icons stored?
  11. I have a fan moving air over my HBAs (2x LSI 9207-8I) to help cool the heatsinks. I would like to see the ability to have a notification sent when a fan quits working i.e. RPMs drop to zero. I see the dashboard has an Airflow section, but the settings gear for that section just goes to a blank page. So, maybe something like this is in the works already, but I wasn't able to find anything on such a feature. Furthermore, I would like to see the ability to rename the fans in the dashboard. Being able to rename them to "CPU", "HBA", "Back Case" or something similar would also help in conveying the importance of the notification based on the fan name.
