  1. Yep, Unassigned Devices, i.e; networked storage from unRAID's perspective. I don't have cache pools, I don't even have parity. My server is a single small SSD and all storage is on NFS shares. I only used unRAID for the apps when I got it, then I switched to Fedora Server but I got it back online 'cause there's always something fresh and cool and unbelievably easy to manage by the unRAID's dev community it's hard to stay away. To sum it up, I can now create a share on my little SSD then add UDs as cache pools to it. Correct? It seems like nice concept if the main storag
  2. I started a little something loosely based on an old 1U Cisco server I had (it's been powered off for a long time now). It's not supposed to match either, more like a add-your-own-brand thing and I was careful not to flatten any curve that would prevent others to make it their own. :) The little logo plaque is a symbol, edit any of them by copying its style, pasting a 2D logo of your own in its place and pasting the style on it and that's it, all of them get updated. :D Well.. the upper artboards; since unRAID is not a clustered system I didn't put much effort on the sec
  3. I dusted off my unRAID flash drive, got the latest stable and found out that it will not show the networked storage when you try to change the location of appdata, it even refuses to accept it if you input it manually. I assume I can get around that from the CLI but maybe there's a reason for the change, so I'm asking before I start hacking things. :) Is it for the table for good? Will I still be able to set it off of unRAID's to networked on a case-by-case basis? (I haven't deployed anything yet) Thanks!
  4. Nevermind my nevermind! I just found this: root@zx2:/boot/config# cat docker.cfg DOCKER_ENABLED="yes" DOCKER_IMAGE_FILE="/mnt/user/system/docker/docker.img" DOCKER_IMAGE_SIZE="20" DOCKER_APP_CONFIG_PATH="/mnt/user/appdata/" DOCKER_APP_UNRAID_PATH="" DOCKER_CUSTOM_NETWORKS=" " DOCKER_LOG_ROTATION="yes" DOCKER_LOG_SIZE="50m" DOCKER_LOG_FILES="1" DOCKER_AUTHORING_MODE="yes" DOCKER_USER_NETWORKS="preserve" I have a feeling that if I set the first line to no/false/0, all will be fixed.
  5. Nevermind! I just realized that if I have appdata elsewhere, I just need to wipe unRAID and start over, I don't have to start over container-wise and I can copy the network settings from SSH or directly from the flash drive. Network and Docker are the most cumbersome areas to setup, so I'm all set.
  6. I just finished some major upgrades on my storage servers for which they had to be taken offline. During this period unRAID (just an appserver, doesn't store things) restarted and when it tried to access the container's appdata directory which had been moved outside unRAID thus was offline it sort of went downhill from there. unRAID still boots up normally but the problem is that configuration-virgin containers do too and because of that they steal the port for the webGUI away from unRAID and I can't access it to remount appdata. Is there a chance mount -a could work? I have not tried it becau
  7. I request multi-domain wildcard certificates at the network edge then rsync them where necessary, even for Windows hosts. My unRAID server which is really an app server already is part of this because I use them for the containers. It can easily symlink the files if I just knew where they need to be. I don't want to use the built-in Let's Encrypt http client because there's always issues with non-DNS validation. For this very same reason I'm deploying from a single point; Let's Encrypt counts API calls, specially the failed ones and it's reset once a week, not daily or after five m
  8. I understood NO but I just had to look that up, I'm as curious as a cat…or a Schnauzer mini. I just learned four new things today just in this page. I'm sure I'll die bc I was being nosey or something and I had to go look. 😂 Anyway, thanks again, you're awesome.
  9. Nope, spoke too soon--I just swap the content with a Synology unit, it also has a cache pool but it's block level cache. It'll be much more useful for VMs. If you're feeling generous :) one last question before making the swap though, what happens if a NEW file is bigger than the cache? Obvi the OS checks if there's enough space to save it, but an OS doesn't know about the cache. Is this passed to unRAID before writing so it puts the file in the appropriate location? I ask to know if what's on the Synology unit is the right fit for unRAID or rotate it to another server
  10. Thanks, now that's a lot clearer. Now that the VMs are in place and I'm actually working on them I'm starting to see the bottleneck of the single spinning disk, they might use little space but there are a lot of them. I may have to scrap the cache and use several small spinning disks--or SSDs but I don't remember where I read it's not recommended--I need to look that up. :/ Thanks again!
  11. I stole unRAID from an app server to create a small vSphere datastore server. I only have one disk which is enough since I only need about 1TB, when you add parity and the cache pool, that single disk alone maxes the basic license I had for the app server anyway. I'll need another one soon. In the cache pool; I'm getting on-screen that it was created fine but it seems like it's using only one disk and the other is maybe a hot spare instead of using both. When you click on the little Cache and Cache 2 link on each drive's row only one of them show anything about being in a pool.
  12. Thanks! As is turns out the backup I had was for the original key. 😂 The drive is now blacklisted. I recovered my email server and sent an email to support, hopefully I can get it back. If not there's always Fedora. :) Thanks for answering.
  13. I sort of lost the flash drive where I had unRAID among a handful of identical flash drives, even same capacity. A while back I copied the contents of the drive to my computer and that backs to another server, I have the key somewhere and I have the flash drive but I don't know which is it--also--I wiped it in an emergency--so all of these drives have something like ESXi or Fedora on them. I already changed my key to a different flash drive in the past (which I still have, right in front of me) and I don't think it's been a year since that happened. Furthermore, this all came about
  14. This week I spent days crafting a perfect container host moving my unRAID server from bare to virt, the lack of sleep was worth it. I was still finishing some stuff so I'm still shutting it down often, vCenter would bring it back minutes later each time. The last time, just like the previous dozen times I assumed it went I got some alerts a bunch of hosts (containers) were down and I found out that the server was wipe clean. Like a factory reset or something. I had 4 VLANs in unRAID and on the initial prompt I'd get the name of the server plus something about joining Active Directory, no ther
  15. While moving my unRAID server from baremetal to virtual, I clicked too soon and screwed up the networking and I had to mount the flash drive elsewhere to fix it. Poking around in the drive I found some references for what it seems the tunneling protocol Wireguard but I have never installed such thing in my unRAID server: I use it only for containers which keep their stuff in /mnt/user/appdata, mostly. It was just and empty directory under /config (or /boot/config in a live system) but there's malware that hide its tracks and I'm pretty sure there's no native Wireguard support in unRAID. I rare
  16. That'll do! Thanks. Although… On second thought, it might get too slow. I guess I'll just have to order an small SSD. Thanks!
  17. I've been using unRAID on a off for a while. I always drop it because of unexplained issues for which I get no support. Last time I managed to figure out, it was the spanning tree protocol (STP/RSTP/MSTP) that for some reason made unRAID error out resulting in a frozen system, not even a reboot. It occured even if I moved unrAID to a whole new system with completely different hardware. Now again there's something bothering unRAID causing it to flip out but I can tailor everything to unRAID, there are hypervisors and other servers that need to share the network. The storage server r
  18. I tried adding it but it makes no difference. It should not need it though; as long as it does not need to route traffic out of that subnet, there's no need for a gateway and there's already a gateway specified in the existing config anyway.
  19. There's no Apply. (It's not available)
  20. I'm trying to add a secondary IP address to unRAID so hypervisors can access it from that IP (and thus move the noise to another VLAN) but I keep trying to set it up and it just won't stick. Whatever I try, when I click on DONE, I'm taken immediately back to the previous page (Settings) and changes are lost. I searched the documentation but the section pertaining to this is beyond vague, I mean… Seriously?! Anyway, thanks !
  21. Nothing seemed to work except wiping out the server and starting over. Strangely data on the array was not lost, not only that, it couldn't be made lost (erased) even after using the New Config feature in the Tools area. I needed to wipe the disks because I wanted container settings gone but SSHing in and deleting the appropriate directories (/mnt/user/appdata/* then the parent /mnt/user/appdata) did the trick.
  22. Thanks for answering, I had forgotten where this was. I did take a look and didn't catch anything obvious though. What I do see when I try to join the domain is that it apparently succeeds: Every time the same three messages appear. I believe the sshd in red, it is that it kills the SSH server to update its settings for domain users, I'm not sure how to set it up to test though. I'm using it as confirmation that something did happen. Lastly, I just updated to 6.8.0 and disabled NetBIOS straight away but it didn't help. These last two screenshots a
  23. I've been trying to access containers but pretty much anything I install is unavailable. I've tried setting the network as bridge and also have tried giving them their own IP address but no matter the method I get the same result in all browsers: The containers already deployed continue to work and continue to connect to the Internet to do their stuff where applies. All can be updated. Furthermore, unRAID cannot join the AD domain anymore. Just today I joined a computer to it and it worked just fine. It pulled everything from the domain as it had. I SS
  24. After switching the disks to a new system I was pleasantly surprised indeed it came straight back up, I had to only change the network settings for the LACP bond. I was going to report a few days later everything went OK but the system crashed yet again. Because of the processor core count going down from 16 (hyperthreaded though) to 4 (real, non-hyperthreaded) it was easier to see the processor was busier I digged a little and found it to be syncthing. I killed the container and rebooted the server and it went without crashes a little further. It was now very obvious i
  25. Thanks you both so much for your help. I had been postponing adding disks and complexity to the system and it seems it worked for the best. I only have containers in it, actually they're the main reason I'm using (and like) unRAID so much, it's a great file management and sorting tool. Assignment should be easy as I was still only working on 1 disk (plus 1 parity). Might be a good time to dust things off; the server room is a tiny closed air-conditioned (ductless) room but for some reason the servers still manage to get a lot of dust trapped in them. It's annoying but
