  1. First, you'll want to read and decide if you want to make the suggested drive fw changes. https://forums.unraid.net/topic/103938-69x-lsi-controllers-ironwolf-disks-summary-fix/ Can you confirm which controller you have these two Seagate drives connected to?
  2. This is great! It will be nice to be able to test things in a VM before making big changes. Thanks for the guide!
  3. Ok now we have several Seagate models affected, something is just not right here. Does anyone know what has actually changed and caused this? Can the Unraid team fix this in a future release or does this mean that for everyone running Seagate drives are at risk? Even if the fix works today, how do you know it will be ok in the next release? It seems there is a deeper issue here that must get addressed. With all of this, I'm staying 6.8.3 for now and continue to enjoy my trouble-free server. I don't have any spare drives to test with and data loss is not an option for me.
  4. I'm trying to decide if I should update the fw on the 8tb drives or leave them on SN04. I haven't had any issues and they say we should not upgrade unless you are having issues. Advice please - upgrade SN05 on those 8tb drives first, or leave them and make the changes using TDD's instructions and then upgrade unraid?
  5. Yes, thank you! I didn't see that thread. I've posted in that thread, thank you!
  6. Thank you all for this thread, very helpful. I'm still on 6.8.3 and I have several Seagate ST8000NM0055 (standard 512E) firmware SN04, which are listed as Enterprise Capacity. I just checked and Seagate has a firmware update for this model, SN05 I also have several Seagate ST12000NE0008 Ironwolf Pro drives with firmware EN01, no firmware updates available. My controller is a LSI 9305-24i x8, bios P14 and firmware P16_IT. I've had zero issues, uptime 329 days. I was thinking of using the Seagate provided usb linux bootable flash builder and boot to that and run the commands out
  7. That is awesome to hear! I think it may have to do with which controller is in use. Mine is a LSI 9305-24i x8. I see you are also running LSI card. Weird how some are having the issue and some are not.
  8. Has anyone using Seagate drives updated to 6.9.2 yet? I'm still on 6.8.3 due to people posting that their Seagate drives were having errors and dropping. As posted by @TDD, the issue is a result in a recent merge into the combined mpt3sas driver and kernel. It was all fine under 4.19. TDD also said that he reported this bug , so I would like to know if 6.9.2 fixed the issue before I try to upgrade. I have not made any changes to my Seagate drives and my server is rock solid with no issues and uptime is at 329 days I would rather not have to disable the EPC or the low current
  9. Hello Kev, just checking in with you to see if you still have had no issues with your Seagate drives? I have the Seagate tool on a flash drive ready to go, but I'm holding off for a while to see if the super Unraid team will fix this in the next update or not. I would rather they address this issue so I do not have to make changes to the drives. The other concern is all of my data drives are Seagate, so if things go wrong, it will be really bad for me. My server has been up and running with 6.8.3 for 322 days straight without any issues. Yes, I'm knocking on wood right now LOL.
  10. Hopefully others will chime in and know what that error is. If it were me, I would start eliminating possible causes. First, turn off all dockers and leave off, and see if the error continue. Try to pin it down to the specific docker, if that is even the issue. I saw an older post from 2016 where the Signal 15 Caught, Saving and Exiting error was related to sabnzbd Did you run the Fix Common Problems ?
  11. I saw it, but I would rather not have to disable the EPC or the low current spin up settings if I don't need to. That's why I'm asking if anyone out there has the same drives as I do and upgraded with no issues.
  12. what dockers are you running?
  13. Now that there are at least two different Seagate drive models with issues after upgrading, can anyone confirm they upgraded with no issues with the same drives I have? 12TB ST12000NE0008 fw: EN01 8TB ST8000NM0055 fw: SN04 LSI 9305-24i x8 controller
  14. Ok good, thank you. For reference, I'm running the LSI 9305-24i x8 card Now that 6.9.1 is out, I'll upgrade straight to that version
  15. Given I run only Seagate drives, does anyone know if the following drives have any issues with this upgrade? 12TB ST12000NE0008 fw: EN01 8TB ST8000NM0055 fw: SN04
  16. good stuff here. I just installed this docker. I too tried setting the unraid dns to the pi-hole IP and found it to be way too slow. I read here unraid should have real dns ip address. I also set my router dns to pi-hole ip address. The issue I have now is my asus router is configured to issue the dns of pi-hole ip via DHCP. That works, but also pushes the router ip as a second dns ip address. I am looking into how to correct this so the router dhcp only issues the pi-hole dns ip. I do see these errors in my unraid log, but everything seems to be working.
  17. some basic troubleshooting tips would include: -Do you have the current bios for your motherboard? It sounded like you were behind on unraid. Updating unraid on outdated motherboard bios can cause issues for some motherboards. -test your monitor on another pc to confirm it still works. At a minimum, even if unraid won't boot, you should see the motherboard bios or some logo, something? You should be able to enter your bios. If you cannot do that, you have a server hardware issue. -If you monitor is confirmed good and you can enter bios, see it booting, try booting to anythi
  18. in addition to what others already told you, check your flash drive using a windows pc, make sure it's not corrupted.
  19. I'm a little confused by your post, but I'll try to offer some help. You will get more help here if you provide more details, motherboard, unraid version, memory, etc. You say that unraid works and all drives are visible expect those using ports 16-23, the top two ports JT5. If correct, then I would agree that checking the SAS controller bios settings is a good idea. That is strange that you are unable to enter the bios menu. If you haven't already, try a wired usb keyboard plugged directly into your motherboard usb port, and do not use wireless keyboard or usb hub of any kind.
  20. Today my miniDLNA stopped working. The docker is running and it says I have the latest version. If you scan for the miniDLNA service, it is no longer broadcasting. I've tried a Forced Update twice to no avail. Has anything changed? I did notice that binhex updated sickchill two days ago, but not sure if they share any files. Suggestions?
  21. libffi is just a temp version fix for python until they update the version included with unraid. A lot of updated python apps won't run without v3.3. Maybe I should bug them to update libffi. As far as it not updating, maybe download or corruption of some sort. Nerdpack checks bad package downloads and deleted them though. You can manually delete them on the flash drive Ok, so I looked through the flash drive and didn't find the libffi package. I'm not sure how it got installed. On the Nerd Pack tab, under the Downloaded column, it says By Download is No. I'm guessing that
  22. I have one item in my Nerd Pack that won't update, libffi. It continues to show up as needing an update. However, it shows up again after running the update. I can't remember why this was installed initially. The only thing in my GO file is: #!/bin/bash # Start the Management Utility /usr/local/sbin/emhttp & Here is a list of the Plugins I have installed: I also have 5 dockers installed. This is the output when I select Update: It's been many years but I recall that when something like this happens,
  23. Many thanks! Next release would be great. I agree and i gave SM some static about that. They also told me that they do not even test with unraid, even though Limetech prefers supermicro boards, so I gave them static for that too. Thanks again!
