Newbie (1/14)



  1. This solution finally worked for me to be able to access Dockers with custom IP addresses (much easier than VLAN setups, adding NICs, and is not limited to just one docker (i.e Pi-Hole) like the solution that replaces the default port 80 with Pi-Hole for pure DNS. However, it was still a little hard to understand and follow how to configure this in my network -- and with an Edgerouter (ER-X). So I thought I'd go ahead and share the specifics in case anyone else could use some additional clarity and/or has an Edgerouter. After mucking around with my firewall rules and getting back out of the wrong rabbit holes, it really was fairly easy in the end. Re-Cap of setting up WireGuard (in Unraid) for access to Docker containers with Custom IP Addresses (e.g. Pi-hole, Unifi, etc.): First, in order to access Docker's that have a custom IP Address you need to disable NAT in the Wireguard VPN settings... as noted in the just-gotta-know-where-to-look on-screen documentation: So, once you disable NAT in the WireGuard Configuration (Settings -> VPN Manager), then Unraid provides the key details in a remark for you: As noted also in the documentation comments and the remark you will need to configure a staic route on the router, but there is still an important missing detail from the on-screen info. Luckily these have been outline in the "WireGuard quickstart" forum thread (linked here). These details (along with the post quoted above) really helped with some additional details that made it more clear for me finally get my network properly configured -- and as it turns out is really very simple. The "WireGuard quickstart" guide is actually a different forum thread, but I found this thread before I finally found my way over to that one (via more Google-Fu) . . . so it seems useful to provide these details here: The quickstart guide (thread linked above) was updated as of February 20, 2020 with a section labeled "Complex Networks" and it provides the key details that were most helpful. How to Configure Static Route for WireGuard (on Unraid) in an EdgeRouter (ER-X): The remaining element was to sort out how to correctly set up the static route in an Edgerouter (ER-X).... so for those that may find their way here and have an Edgerouter (or similar), here's the process: 1. On the Routes Tab, click to Add a new Static Route: 2. Enter the details that are provided by the Unraid UI (see screenshot above when NAT is disabled under VPN Management): 3. Save and Apply the changes to the EdgeRouter... the end result will look like this if you open it after saving: 4. And Finally, you need to ensure that Docker is correctly set to enable "Host Access to custom networks" in the Docker Settings (Settings -> Docker): Which will result in this... Actual url to detailed instruction is just below: Note: The original details for this step are on Page 8 of this thread, but I found them from the link that is also on the "WireGuard quickstart" thread.... so I'm posting here again for continuity:
  2. Wow, Thank you soo much! This also resolved my issue too! I was getting an error during Unraid boot process that would pause the process that said something like: "Cannot find interface 'br0': No such device" or "Interface not found br0: No such device"... Unfortunately , I lost the photo that I took when it was happening) but it was preventing Unraid from continuing through the boot-up process. Requiring me to I connect a monitor & keyboard to my server (which is intended to be headless tucked away in my network closet), and then use the keyboard to hit key(s) to continue, which would then allow the boot process to continue. It was super stable staying up for 60+ days, etc., but frustrating none-the-less and was not reliable to trust that the server could recover on it's own after a power outage . . . We had a power outage last night and of course Unraid didn't boot up. I've been searching for months for something to help understand this issue . . . and FINALLY found this simple thread! Sure wish this bit of info. could be in the error message that it was giving :-). This definitely seems to have resolved my issue, now it's finally booting cleanly without manual intervention! Thanks @phrozen087 for the post, and for answering your own question (I never found that other post you found)!!!
  3. No, it doesn't result in a borked container.... just a borked SQL Lite db file which breaks the software (e.g. Sonarr, Radarr). After restoring a working database (or deleting so that the app will rebuild again) then the container works just fine. As clearly outlined in the many threads I'll summarize here: In my experience -- like many others -- I was getting a corrupted DB every day. The Sonarr/Radarr UI will load, but many of the menu items will fail to work, and of course the software would not process any configured movies/shows, etc. The real errors are clearly visible in the logs stating that the Sql Lite DB is malformed.
  4. I've been struggling with Radarr & Sonarr "malformed" database errors for weeks now also -- ever since trying to move them from my HTPC to my Unraid server (seemed like a great idea, now not-so-much). Unraid Setup: I'm running a brand new Unraid server build (using my old HTPC hardware) so my first and only version I've used is Unraid v6.7.2. I'm using binhex-radarr & binhex-sonarr docker containers. All appdata mappings have been updated to /mnt/disk2. I do not have a cache drive (nor do I need one for my purposes) so I'm currently using the disk array directly via /mnt/disk2. Hardware Info: AMD Athlon II X4 620 ASUS M4A785-M 8GB DDR2 RAM LSI SAS 9207-8i HBA card -- all disk drives are running on an; no drives are connected to the motherboard (to avoid various known BIOS booting issues with the MB) Running 5 Data Disks with 1 Parity Disk (brand new Toshiba 4TB NAS 7200 RPM HDD). I haven't been able to get Sonarr stable on Unraid v6.7.2 . . . I also keep getting Sqllite malformed database errors every couple of days. Initially Sonarr seemed to be stable for a week before installing Radarr... but I wasn't paying too much attention prior to installing Radarr. Lately however, Radarr has been working without issue, but Sonarr restuls in a corrupted/malformed SQLite database just about every couple of days. I may try adding a small HDD I have in an external closure and moving appdata mappings to that via Unassigned Devices as a last attempt . . .
  5. I concur.... coming over from FlexRaid I'm thoroughly enjoying my brand new Unraid Build that I just finished. All weekend I played "towers of hanoi" with my data and drives as I got them added into the Array one-by-one, and syncing/validating/validating-again my data before letting the drives get cleared. FlexRaid was a fantastic idea for my work from home and home server setup.... but the lack of support and somewhat schizophrenic disappearances of my array had me seriously concerned. As the original OP did, I then re-discovered Unraid and realized it offered the same benefits of a parity approach but with all power of being it's own OS. Luckily, I also upgraded my HTPC about a year ago, so I happened to have an AMD Athlon II and Asus M4A785-M motherboard (yes it's working perfectly for me) looking for a job to do . . . I tossed in a new Node 804 case, LSI HBA 9207-8i (and a few fans), and an Intel PRO/1000 PCI Express NIC . . . and voila I've got a new lean, slick looking, Unraid server up and running! I've been extremely impressed with the utter ease of use and confidence the software instills (once it's booting consistently as my M4A785-M MB was initially shakey until the LSI card was put in; known issue in the forums). I love the headless nature of it and the Web UI (and look forward to a mobile App option in the future). But my Gigabit network and Moca 2.0 adapaters are working wonderfully getting great speeds to/from the server at nearly 2-3x the speed that FlexRaid used to run at (~70-100 MB/s vs FlexRaids 30-40 MB/s) Needless to say I'm very impressed also and very happy to have a solution up and running again . . . Now next priority to work out is exactly how to get my BackBlaze Home account backing the array up to the cloud like it did with my FlexRaid (running on same machine)!
  6. This is still definitely an issue. I have been testing Unraid via the Trial on an old USB stick for a few days while I build my new Unraid server.... ordered a new Sandisk Cruzer (Sandisk 32GB Cruzer Fit USB 2.0 Flash Drive (SDCZ33-032G-G35), and when trying to write the ZIP backkup of my original Unraid USB (backed up via Web UI) I consistently got the very same result with it immediately freezing with status "syncing file system". After attempting some of the workarounds here I did get it to write by manually formatting & renaming the USB drive name while it showed the error "syncing file system", to which the USB installer would resume and appear to complete, but only ~7GB of the 32GB was shown as being formatted, and needless to say it wasn't bootable. The only thing that finaly worked was the completely manual process from the Unraid site (https://wiki.unraid.net/UnRAID_6/Changing_The_Flash_Device#Legacy_method_-_Windows_and_MacOS), which took 2-3 repeated attempts before I finally ran the "make_bootable.bat" file correclty; it didn't work from Admin command prompt, but it did work successfully when I right clicked and ran "as Administrator" directly from Explorer. So, thankfully eventually the manual process worked and now boots without an issue . . . And, I'm super impressed with Unraid overall, but there is definitely a problem with the USB bootable installer for migrating/restoring, which would have been absolutely wonderful if it had worked.
