    [Support] Linuxserver.io - Unifi

    Have I done something stupid? I was running 5.8.30 fine. UnRAID did it's usual weekly update earlier today and now I get the following error on running the controller: "We do not support upgrading from 5.8.30." Any ideas? UPDATE: RESOLVED. Repository had reverted to stable branch. Re-added "unstable" and all is well.

    [Support] Linuxserver.io - Unifi

    Wow, quick response! Unfortunately, the other docker only keeps logs within the appdata folder, everything else must be within the docker image which seems a bit unusual. This is why I'm keen to move to the Linuxserver.io one. I'm hoping I can do a config back from within the UniFi controller app (.unf file). I can then hopefully import that once I get to the Set-up screen on the UniFi controller on this docker. *** UPDATE *** Just for information. I installed the Linuxserver.io docker. Restored the .unf file from my previous docker and all is up and running in under 5 minutes. I now have my config on my cache in an accessible place, rather than from within the docker image.

    [Support] Linuxserver.io - Unifi

    Hello all. If I wanted to move from the other UniFi controller docker to this one, is there a "simple" migration path? Can I simply backup my old config from within the UniFi controller app, install this docker, disable the old docker, run up this one and import my config? I'm trying to avoid having to set everything up from scratch again as it was a right pain last time! Many thanks
  4. Excellent. Thank you. One more question if I may. I have automatic backups ON. The backup goes to a backup location within the docker (see below). The docker currently maps: /var/lib/unifi -> /mnt/cache/appdata/unifi/ I thought I could simply add a new route for the backup to expose an external location to the docker, eg: /usr/lib/unifi/data/backup/autobackup -> /mnt/cache/appdata/unifi/autobackup (note the /usr rather than /var) The /var/lib/unifi seem to contain the server.log only. The /usr/lib/unifi seems to contain everything else! When starting the docker with the new path added, the UniFi controller had lost all my settings. Removing this mapping fixed things, but obviously auto backups are back to being within the docker image. I believe the question was asked back in April (by lchichiarelli) but I can't find what the resolution was. ps. Happy Christmas!
  5. A question about the UniFi Controller docker if I may. I've just purchased a USG and Pro access point. Totally new to Unify stuff so took it slowly. Installed Docker. Ran through set-up of Controller software. Followed UniFi instructions to SSH on to the USG and change the IP address to be on the same subnet as my Unraid server. Adopted the USG. Disconnected old router. Adopted access point. All great and working brilliantly. Then I was an idiot. Saw in Unraid there was a docker upgrade. Hit Upgrade. Upon returning to the controller software it appeared to be a fresh install? Wanted me to run set-up again or restore from backup. Backup? I am an idiot - no backup yet. Ok, can "transfer" to new controller using admin login/password. Idiot 2™. Safari auto-fill has screwed up my admin password so it wasn't accepted. Ok. Factory reset of both USG and Access Point. Re-install of docker. Would it adopt? Course not. After two hours SSHing in to USG, changing IP and trying to adopt I eventually restored my old router and followed the instruction AGAIN right from the beginning. Adoption fine. Hurrah. Absolutely no idea why my old router was needed, assume routing wasn't correct without it. Made a backup. Quite a few actually. So my question (see, there is one eventually) is What is the recommended update process for the UniFi controller docker? Is it backup -> update -> restore or should the controller remember its settings? I'd just like not to go through this again! Ps. Thanks for the docker. It's excellent. It's just this user who was an idiot.

    This looks excellent - Thank You. I am currently using Borg Backup, but this has a very nice looking UI.

    Just to confirm, I too have Margarita running on my Mac. Disabling it stopped the logs

    Thanks. I've checked both these thread and previously had checked all plugins were up to date, after reading about those with similar issues. I've attached diagnostics in case any kind soul is able to figure out where they're coming from. tower-diagnostics-20170215-1914.zip

    Since upgrading to 6.3.1 I am also seeing this error every minute: > root: error: webGui/include/Notify.php: missing csrf_token I'm not getting any other csrf_token errors. I did have the /boot/config/plugins/dynamix.plg file present, which I've since deleted and re-booted server. The issue still persists. I've checked all my Dockers and Plugins are up to date. Any suggestions? I can (of course) post diagnostics here once I'm at home in front of the server.

    External HDD expansion for HP MicroServer G8

    Thanks again for you detailed replies. It really has helped enormously in deciding what to do, and how to do it! By the way, I notice the IcyCube has been replaced with a new version (MB561U3S-4S R1 as opposed to MB561U3S-4S). The only difference I can see is that the new one has an external power brick, while the original is internal. I prefer the original! Unfortunately it seems in short supply. Only places are amazon and CPC. Amazon has both version in stock. Same price. Also, meant to say - I upgraded my Microserver with an Intel i3 3240T (2.90GHz) which I found cheap. You're right Xeon's were really pricey and while this only gives a small performance bump it is noticeable and was an easy swap.

    External HDD expansion for HP MicroServer G8

    Sorry John_M a question - the eSATA card you have is out of stock. Is there something special about the Marvell 88SE9235 chipset or would https://www.amazon.co.uk/Syba-Internal-External-Profile-Brackets/dp/B00AZ9T4F8 do the job? I was originally thinking of this one https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Graphics-Cards/StarTech-Port-SATA-Gbps-Express-eSATA-Controller/B003GSGMPU (or their version with additional internal ports) as I'd read somewhere it worked well in the Microserver. Chipset isn't mentioned though.

    External HDD expansion for HP MicroServer G8

    Yes, this is clearly the simplest and most cost effective solution. Can't help but feel I'm wasting not using those old drives though. This got be thinking I'd add a new server, which got me thinking I'd add external storage, which got me in to this in the first place! Hmmm.

    External HDD expansion for HP MicroServer G8

    Thanks. I did come across your threads, but it seems I need to read them again. The ICYCube is very expensive in the UK (twice the price of the Microserver!) so I initially discounted it. However, by the time I've got a new microserver+unraid licence+Usb stick+parity drive+RAM+uprated processor it probably isn't such an expense! Really appreciate you taking to time to respond
  15. I've done a lot of searching both here and elsewhere, but seem to be getting confused as to what will work, and if the whole idea is a good one or not. My HP Microserver is full (4 x HDD and 1 x SSD for cache). I'd like to add a 4 bay (or even 2 bay) external drive box. It appears that in the past SATA (plus using a port multiplier aware port) was the way to go, but I understand UnRAID 6.2 supports USB3. There are a load of cheap boxes available here in the UK, such as the IcyBox that appear to do the job. Some examples are: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Icybox-IB-3664SU3-External-Enclosure-3-5-Inch/dp/B013J7ZRMQ/ref=sr_1_1 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hornettek-Enterprise-Quad-Hard-Drive/dp/B00CYFM520/ref=pd_sbs_147_1 Can anyone clarify if they work, and if there is a particular recommendation? As the Microserver is a budget box, I'm not looking to spend thousands to extend it. I would be really (really!) grateful for some help
