  1. Solved - crappy usb drive it looks like. Changed the usb and it’s been clean for a few weeks now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Is it possible to get the hardware profile uploaded by users? I would like to collate the information into a publicly accessible Grafana or similar dashboard to give Unraid users a view of what hardware other people are running. This would end questions like "is this GPU compatible" or "this piece of kit I want to buy" and would just generally be cool information. We can also expand this information into swapping or deals channels for user at a later stage? Kind Regards, George
  3. I figured it out! So I had this situation where my Samsung TV Plex client wouldn't recognise my Plex server. Just couldn't figure it out. The DHCP server automatically assigned an IP address which was fine for about a year. DHCP address - But what I didn't think about was that I created a wireguard client that also assigned this IP address as valid in its range. And when I tried to create a VM it was also assigning this IP address. A quick cleanup later and everything works again.
  4. Well, as per Spaceinvaderone's vid, I created a new network for the Jitsi containers. It should just my my standard router delivering DHCP. I wonder if I should try to put my VM's on their own network, how would I do that?
  5. I know there are a lot of posts on bad USB drives on here, just basically getting rid of some frustration. I've had my build up for close to a year now. In that time I have not been able to once (ok, I lie, I've had 3 successes) do a clean shutdown or a clean reboot of my system. Honestly, every single time I bring it down, I get a kernel panic on startup. Then I have to, build a new key (annoying my wife because I have to use her windows laptop, I've only got Macs and the USB creator doesn't work anymore) Copy my last backed up config to the drive. Start up and let it run through a whole new parity check. Today it was LZMA is corrupt, a hard reboot of the system and kernel panic. I'm always on the latest version. 6.8.3 in this case. I've run a 48hour memtest+. No issues. The thing is I'm not learning from my mistakes. I can't remember in which forum I read this, but the key to doing a backup of the flash drive, is to do it when the array is stopped, this stops the array from wanting to do a parity check after my unclean shutdowns. Also: This Sandisk Cruzer Blade of mine must be corrupt, so today I dug an old 4GB unknown name USB from a drawer and I moved my licence.... I'll have to see how it holds up. Interestingly, I had a look at the config file in my now corrupted boot up disk. What went wrong with that? This is maybe one for the devs: My cache disk assignment was all wrong in it. I have 2 disks in a raid 0 (don't hate me, I needed the space), but the assignment shows only one disk and it puts the second one in unassigned devices. Rant over. I'm thinking I should just never shut it down again. Ps. My shutdown procedure: - disable docker service. - spin down array - check open files for anything blocking - reboot -cry
  6. I had this issue. I switched to VNC viewer (Free) and just set a vnc password in your VM setup before you start it. I think my problem was changing my default ports around.
  7. I'm struggling to create linux VM's. I've tried a few different images, but all seem to fail out due to networking issues I think. Ubuntu, Lubuntu, arch. All fail. I've created VM's before without an issue, but since I last created a VM I have done the following: Installed Wireguard and Pihole side by side (so changed my server ports) Installed Letsencrypt Create a new network for Jitsi. None of these might be related, however maybe I missed something in there? I've attached the log file for the error I'm getting during the VM creation as well as my server diagnostics. Anything I'm doing wrong? tower-diagnostics-20200511-1637.zip
  8. I installed Jitsi, as per the instructional video of SpaceInvaderOne. I now see that there are new images available for Jitsi, but how do you update them inside Portainer? I've done a couple of google searches but all I see are arguments about rebuilding the image vs recreating the image and how you should do neither and I'm confused.
  9. So my wireguard setup (and PiHole) work perfectly. When I connect with my phone I can see my internal network as well as browse the web. Now is it possible to set up an internal port forward on my Unraid server, so my phone can access the vpn via Privoxy (port 8118). If it helps, in wireguard my peer ip is defined as
  10. He didn't answer, but I had the same issue this morning. Basically my problem was that in the wireguard config I set my local tunnel address to the router gateway rather than my Unraid server. Setting it to the server sorts it!

  12. Funny that. There was something stopping it from unmounting successfully. It said disk1 was still in use. Fuser command said it was mount command holding it up. Nothing else running. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Same thing. It still corrupts. I just installed the button to see if that would make a difference. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. So I ran a 12 hour memtest yesterday and there were no issues reported. I'm starting to wonder if my USB boot stick is bad. To clarify how I shut down: 1. I stop all my dockers. 2. I stop all my vm's (I only have 3 linux ones active all the time) 3. I make sure I have no shells open 4. I hit the power button provided by the Dynamix buttons plugin. Then I leave the machine for 30 minutes or so, but still it does not shut down. The last message I see via the attached monitor is normally something like (boot unmounted). But I have to still press the power button and then on next boot I have to recreate the USB key.
