  1. 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. I have found that wireless keyboards and usb hubs sometimes are not active at the very time you need to press the keys to enter bios. Based on the user guide, it looks like all ports are active by default, so you really shouldn't have to change anything. Check your bios and firmware versions, as I had to upgrade mine before the controller worked properly in my system. My system hung at boot trying to initialize the controller until I upgraded the bios and firmware. That said, I'm not using JT5 in my system, no need. I have all 12 drives plugged into JT1 and JT4. Even after the bios update, I didn't need to make any changes in the SAS controller bios. As for your system trying to boot from LAN, you need to use the motherboard bios / UEFI to change the boot device order. In my system, I disabled LAN boot, and have the first device to be USB unraid flash drive. I'm confused as to why you say it works fine except the top ports, but then you say it's trying to boot from LAN. In my opinion, I disable everything on the motherboard that is not in use, wifi, hard drive controllers, serial ports, etc. Take a close look at section 1.8 of the User Guide, I've attached a screenshot of that section. Good luck!
  2. 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?
  3. 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 means it was not installed using NP. What is the recommend resolution to fix this so it will update? Should I use NP and select Uninstall, and then Install it again? Thank you!
  4. 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, the resolution would be to Uninstall and then Install again using the Nerd Pack tab. Is that still the recommended resolution? I do not know why this Libffi is even being installed, but it must have been something related to a Plugin, or perhaps it's not even needed anymore. Any ideas?
  5. 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!
  6. Not the point. With the new fw and old drivers, unraid will not display anything on the connected monitor. I had to roll fw back because drivers are old, again this is unraid specfic.
  7. I have Home Assistant docker installed. I noticed that when I go to the webgui, it now shows it's deprecated. when I click on the button, i get I read something about lovelace being the new ui. https://www.home-assistant.io/blog/2019/01/23/lovelace-released/ When I search in unraid Apps for home assistant, I get the following So is this docker going to be updated, or should I remove the docker I have installed and install the above Control Panel or Core dockers? Just trying to figure out how to get the on latest docker for Home Assistant. I don't like the Deprecated flag, as that means this version should be replced. Thanks!
  8. Can you please confirm if you included the new ASPEED drivers in this update? Supermicro came back and said I now need to update the ASPEED drivers inside Unraid before we can update the BMC fw. Here is the link to the new drivers, https://www.supermicro.com/wftp/driver/VGA/ASPEED/ASPEED.zip Would be great if these new drivers were added to Unraid. I posted this in the Feature Request thread. I'm told that after I do this, my video output will be restored when running the new BMC fw. I forgot to mention that Support had me roll back the BMC fw to 1.48 and the video is once again working normal. The ASPEED drivers upgrade and the BMC fw to the latest contains Security fixes. Thank you!
  9. Thank you! I just saw the hdhomerun docker update is ready today, and I updated with no issues. Everything looks good. many thanks! BTW, if you are not running unraid, what did you move to?
  10. reconfigured everything and now it's working again, recording as expected. I really do not understand why. Even though it's listed on my Docker tab, it still does not show up on the Apps tab under Installed. And if you search for hdhomerun in Apps, it is not listed. I'm just glad it's working again. I only wish I understood what happeened.
  11. Something is wrong and recording is not working. I tried the new repository. Everything looks like it configured correctly, and I even canceled the Tasks and recreated them. I see nothing in the logs that indicate errors. I tried to force a update and it removed the docker and I'm left with orphans. How do I remove those and get my hdhomerun back? When I go to apps, I see a note that says hdhomerun is not compatible with my version of unraid?? Update: I removed the orphan and added the container again, the docker is there again and Started. However, HDHomeRun does not show up as a installed app on the Apps tab. Something is very weird here. Any ideas on how to get this working again, and what is the deal with the note about it not being compatible?
  12. My setup was working fine for a very long time. However, while the config and docker all look good, and the app even says my dvr is ready to record, it does not record. I did get a firmware update a couple of days ago, so maybe that is it. I see in above post that there is updated repository, so I will try that. Is the correct one still eatemalive/hdhomerun-dvr:latest ?
  13. You can downgrade the BMC fw to 1.48 and video will work again. Or, figure out how to install the new drivers manually. I have not had time to look into how to do that, so I just downgraded and left it for now. I hope the new drivers are included in the next build. I forgot to mention that in another thread, I was given advice that looks like it might be a easy fix. I will try that when I get time. https://forums.unraid.net/topic/88719-monitor-display-is-blank-after-unraid-is-up-and-running/?tab=comments#comment-827308
  14. I posted in the Feature Request to have the new drivers included in Unraid. I hope they respond and add them to the next release.
  15. I think we just need help installing the drivers manually. I've never done that so I will not try it without help. I agree, the new drivers should be included in Unraid. My above post includes the direct link to the latest drivers we need and this thread is in the Feature Request. We just need LT to respond and add them.
  16. Supermicro came back and said I now need to update the ASPEED drivers inside Unraid. Anyone have instructions on how to do that? Here is the link to the new drivers, https://www.supermicro.com/wftp/driver/VGA/ASPEED/ASPEED.zip Would be great if these new drivers were just added to Unraid. I'm told that after I do this, my video output will be restored. I forgot to mention that Support had me roll back the BMC fw to 1.48 and the video is once again working normal. I'll have to figure out how to install the new ASPEED drivers and then I will be able to upgrade the BMC fw to the latest,. Latest contains Security fixes.
  17. I had to update the bios on my supermircro mb and I have lost video output on the attached monitor. Supermicro support said I need to update the ASPEED drivers. Here is the link, https://www.supermicro.com/wftp/driver/VGA/ASPEED/ASPEED.zip Anyone have the instructions on how to do this? Or can you please update Unraid to include these new drivers?
  18. I heard back from Supermicro, and given you have the same mb, you will run into this same issue if you upgrade the bios and fw. Here are the steps to fix it. I will try this in the next few days and report back. 1. The KVM console file from the WEBGUI is JAVA applications, you will need install JAVA to run it. 2. The latest BMC FW contains a security fix which require to update ASPEED drivers to the latest 1.10 for the OS, it looks like your Unraid OS does not have it so it shows black screen. To fix this, --------------------------------------------------- 1. Please roll back the BMC drivers to previous 1 version. FW 1.48 (Attached) 2. Do AC off (remove power cord), after the FW is downgraded to FW 1.48 successfully. 3. The OS should be fine with FW 1.48, then download the ASPEED drivers from our SMC website to do the drivers update. 4. Upgrade the system to the latest BMC FW.
  19. I do not use a Go file anymore and haven't for a long time, so that can't be it. Also, just to point out that I have not made any changes to my server except the bios updates and everything on the server was working fine before that. I just went back and checked the bios settings and I do not find anything to change. There are a couple of new options in the bios after the update, see attached pics. Thanks for the info on the igpu. I'm using the vga port on the motherboard connected to a monitor. I do have a ticket open with Supermicro as well, but they have not yet responded to it. Please take a look at the pics and let me know if you see anything that I should try changing. After the bios update, I went back and changed everything to match what I had before. The last pic I included is the last screen I see on the monitor attached to the server, before it goes dark. Thank you!
  20. Thanks for your reply. I don't use plex at all and I only have a few dockers installed. Also, it's not just KVM, I also do not have any video to the attached monitor. Just to confirm, I just stopped and disabled all of my dockers, but that didn't resolve the issue. I've never had a pci video card in my server. I'm using the CPU onboard GPU. I do find your issue interesting, so thanks for sharing.
  21. Unraid is 6.8.2 and I have had no recent issues with my server at all. I have a SuperMicro X11SSM-f, and full specs in are in my sig. I built a new windows 10 pc and I was having KVM Console connection issues with my new pc, so opened a case with Supermicro. They directed me to update both my system bios and the IPMI firmware to fix the issue, and to use a new version of IPMIView. I have updated the bios and the BMC fw and the process worked without any errors. I followed the instructions exactly. I did Restore Settings to Default after the bios update, and then went back in and put back the settings as they were before (working system with no issues at all). The motherboard bios shows it is now 2.3. I took pictures of every bios screen before doing anything so I could be sure to put everything back. Before Starting the BMC firmware update, I unchecked both boxes per the instructions, means those settings were put back to factory default as well. After the fw update I connected to the server BMC via web gui, I updated the BMC password and made no other changes. Firmware shows 1.58. I can boot the system to the Bios screen and I can also boot to the Shell and I see output on the attached monitor. I can use the web gui and login to the BMC without any issues. The System screen shows the same thing as the attached monitor and I can also iKVM and take control of the server. So far everything is good. The IPMI application from my pc works now, the KVM Console works again so the updates fixed that issue. Although it seems the BMC web gui has all the same features of IPMI View, so I’m not sure I need that application now. Now the big issue. When I boot to Unraid I can see the initial boot screen for Unraid on the attached monitor as it is loading the unraid OS. However, after it boots, the attached monitor goes blank and I cannot see the unraid screen anymore. I normally would see the Unraid login screen. I also connect to the server BMC via web gui and when it shows the server screen, it too is blank, just like the attached monitor. When I use iKVM via BMC web gui, it also shows the blank screen if I take control of the sever. However, if I just connect to the server via the browser (regular interface - Not BMC interface), my server is up and running perfectly. I just no longer have video to the attached monitor. When I go to reboot Unraid, it drops out of the unraid OS, ie shutting down, I again see the screen logs as it shuts down, so it goes back to normal display on the monitor. It looks like I only have the issue when unraid is fully running. I of course did not have this issue with Unraid prior to the Bios and BMC firmware updates. Any ideas?
  22. I found the paper with my pw, so I'm in. For others with this issue, I found instructions (but did not test it). It said to Stop HA. Rename or delete the Storage directory, restart HA and it shoudl prompt you to create HA account / pw. I hope this helps others
  23. I need this info too and the Support does NOT have the answer. How did you reset your gui password?
