  1. Thanks and sorry, I just thought formatting in general was part of unraid. I didn't realize my question was related to the UD plugin. I will post any follow up questions in there. Thanks again.
  2. Hi, I am on unraid 6.9.2. I recently attached an external ssd drive via usb and it shows up under unassigned devices. The file system shows as exfat. I want to change it to xfs. How do I do that? I could have sworn there was an option before to format the drive and select a file system, however, I can't seem to find it anymore.
  3. I have an external drive connected via a usb port on the motherboard. It's currently mounted through the unassigned devices plugin. For the past few months the reallocated sector count has been increasing daily if not every other day. The reallocated sector count is just over 600. I believe the drive will die soon. My question is, to replace the drive, do I just unmount the drive, turn off the server and connect a new drive in the same usb slot on the motherboard? Will I have to remap any directories to the new drive that other apps might have in place? Thanks.
  4. It I press the power button it does shut down the server but then when it starts back up it goes into a parity check when I enable the array. I did not try if ssh would work on the issue today, however, for the issue on my first post, I could not ssh in.
  5. I got this message today via email notification: cron for user xxxxxxx /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/dynamix/scripts/monitor &> /dev/null Again the server was unresponsive and I had to restart and then it would trigger a parity check. Is there no way to safely shut down/reboot the server? I can't reach the server via the gui and the shares do not show up when todays issue happened.
  6. Just trying to understand an issue and how to prevent it from happening again. A few days ago unraid was not responding, I could not access the server, any shares or applications. Between 12am and 12pm on that day something must have happened. The only logs saved in the syslog is what's below and that was reported at 6am. /etc/libvirt: 23.7 MiB (24875008 bytes) trimmed on /dev/loop3 /var/lib/docker: 35.4 GiB (37964091392 bytes) trimmed on /dev/loop2 /mnt/cache: 283.6 GiB (304536956928 bytes) trimmed on /dev/sdd1 At 12pm or just prior I did a hard power off and then turned the server back on. Was able to get in but had to endure the parity check. The only issue I was dealing with at the time was the external cache drive under unassigned devices had almost no space left. Could that have caused this situation or do those logs I posted mean anything?
  7. It might be related to this article on the plex forums. https://forums.plex.tv/t/important-information-about-plex-for-smart-tvs-after-september-30-2021/746506 Basically it seems like some tv's lost support for secure connections.
  8. I'm on Nextcloud version 20.0.10 and I no longer see the open updater in overview under administration. I remember disabling a bunch of apps to try and improve performance. Could that be related? Is there a way for me to check and upgrade another way? Thanks.

    4U Rack Case

    Thanks both of you. Those are some good suggestions I will look at when parts become more readily available.

    4U Rack Case

    I do not. Just relying on the 1 parity drive right now. I will upgrade to two parity drives at some future point. I know parity is not a proper backup solution. But other than doubling costs for having a second server (which is too expensive for me), I don't see any other option.

    4U Rack Case

    Thanks I'll read through that. I guess I don't want to waste the 3TB or 4TB drives I have as opposed to upgrading them to 16TB (I feel like it's wasted money). I don't know what to do with the old drives if they aren't used anymore if I did upgrade them. I'm not into selling parts. I still have lots of slots for the Norco. and it is working good for me. I guess I'm just trying to make sure I have a good upgrade path if something goes wrong with the norco since I only see bad stories about it online. Just want to be prepared in case.

    4U Rack Case

    I see you recommended the https://www.supermicro.com/en/products/chassis/4U/846/SC846BE2C-R1K23B. Is there a 36 bay equivalent by supermicro? Or would it make more sense to add a DAS 5 years from now if needed? I also have a LSI 9305-24i card that I currently use in the Norco. I assume the setup is the same with the 24 bay supermicro case you mentioned? Just that the supermicro case is way better? Thanks again for your help.

    4U Rack Case

    Currently I have a Norco 4224 4U case using sata drives. What would be an upgrade? A supermicro case? If so what case would people recommend that would work. I want to be able to install an atx motherboard at the very minimum and install pci cards like a video card or HBA card etc... Also 24 bay is the minimum but I want to try and find something that will be able to fully use the 30 drive limit that unraid has. Thanks.
  14. It was on the windows machine when you browse using file explorer to create a folder on the unraid system. I figured out what the issue was. For some reason the smb security settings was set to secure (for the usb flash drive) which prevents write access. I changed it to public and it allows me to create the folder now. I guess i have to live with that warning beside the usb flash drive saying to change it.
  15. Hi, I'm trying to add a script, however I cannot create the folder in config/plugins/user.scripts/scripts. I get a "Destination Folder Access Denied" error. Any ideas on how to fix this? Also just a coding question. I'm trying to write a python script to list directories using pycharm in a docker. If i run the following commands these are the outputs: - "pwd" returns "/home/nobody/PychamProjects/test" (above command works) - "ls -l ../mnt/cache/appdata" returns "No such file or directory" (what should be the correct path? typing that command in the unraid terminal gives a directory listing)
  16. Got this weird issue today. Opening the plex webui from Unraid only shows 1 user. It's missing the main user and all other users. If you log into the plex app via a browser, all users are shown. I haven't upgraded the plex app to the latest version yet since I am running the nvidia plugin and I heard it does not have support for the latest drivers for transcoding. Any idea how to fix this? Thanks. (fixed the issue... had something to do with the browser... clearing cache reset everything)
  17. When you do the make directories step. This is the command posted: mkdir -p /mnt/user/appdata/jitsi/jitsi-meet-cfg/{web/letsencrypt,transcripts,prosody,jicofo,jvb,jigasi,jibri} With the letsencrypt docker changing to swag... does the word letsencrypt in the command have to be changed to swag?
  18. Have an issue where all the plex user accounts have been deleted. The only user accounts that remain are manual ones that were created in Ombi. Has this happened to anyone else? Any fix to retrieve or should I just start from scratch and create new accounts in Ombi.
  19. @SpaceInvaderOne Question about what password is being used from your instructions. Since there are two rocketchat users (admin database & rocketchat database). What user are you referring to in the MONGO_URL & MONOGO_OPLOG_URL? I ask since the passwords can be different between the two rocketchat users created. use admin db.createUser({user: "root",pwd: "password",roles: [{ role: "root", db: "admin"}]}) db.createUser({user: "rocketchat",pwd: "password",roles: [{role: "readWrite", db: "local" }]}) use rocketchat db.createUser({user: "rocketchat",pwd: "password",roles: [{ role: "dbOwner",db: "rocketchat" }]}) MONGO_URL mongodb://rocketchat:password@yourIP:27017/rocketchat ROOT_URL https://rocketchat.yourdomain.com MONGO_OPLOG_URL mongodb://rocketchat:password@yourIP:27017/local?authSource=admin

    Smart Error

    I'm not an expert on bit rot, but correct me if I'm wrong (this is my understanding). - bit rot is real, however, it happens very rarely? - zfs I believe is supposed to protect against bit rot, I don't think Unraid supports this - I assume that if you have ecc ram in unraid and do a monthly parity check it will mitigate bit rot?

    Smart Error

    It's a seagate archive drive. Got it a long time ago when it was a really good price. I did run an extended test and it passed. Although I do not know if the report is saved anywhere.

    Thanks for the analysis. Just so I can learn from this. What pointed you to that conclusion and why?

    Smart Error

    I don't think they need all that right? Anyways here is the smart log for the drive with the error. disk.txt
  25. So one of my disks has a smart error. It shows a nice thumbs down on the dashboard screen. When I click on the drive this is what's highlighted. # ATTRIBUTE NAME FLAG VALUE WORST THRESHOLD TYPE UPDATED FAILED RAW VALUE 187 Reported uncorrect 0x0032 096 096 000 Old age Always Never 4 I ran a SMART short self-test and a SMART extended self-test and both passed. Do I need to be concerned? Anything else I should be doing?
