  1. Hi all, I just realize that my unraid machine does not have swap enabled. I did not find much information here in the forum. Does unraid by default use a swap file or do I need to enable that manually somewhere? I also found that swap files are not supported on BTRFS on Linux earlier than version 5, which is a pity, because all my drives use BTRFS, also the SSD Cache drives. I never had memory problems, but with recently more docker containers, some of which use a a few hundred MB RAM, I seem to reach a limit, CPU and Storage get very busy when memory fills up. I first thought that this is caused by swap thrashing, and then saw that the machine does not use swap at all.... What is the recommended route to go? Put swap on HDD oder SSD? For that I would need to reformat a drive or the cache pool from BTRFS to XFS. Am I overthinking this? Will unraid select the best location and create a swap file when it finds a non-BTRFS formatted drive? If the best way would be to take the cache SSD pool from BTRFS to XFS, what is the recommended strategy to get from a) to b)? Note: I have empty drives lingering in the array, would be easy to reformat one from BTRFS to XFS, but I guess putting swap on the cache pool is better?
  2. I have problems with a container (dockerhub conversion?) so I removed it. When I look this container up in CA and re-install it, the docket template uses all the values I previously had used. That is useful most of the time, but in this case I want to start fresh. How can I make CA or unraid to use the docker template as it is in CA, and not what I had changed later? Also how can I remove templates from the selection list where unraid collects all templates I ever used (this list is shown when you click "Add container" on the docker page in unraid)
  3. I have the same issue and did not find any other related thread be User1 or CrimsonTyphoon. Did you solve the problem? How? Rebooting after turning off the VM manger before turning it back an is not really a solution...
  4. I have been running this container for quite a while, never any problems. Until I started using VMs on unraid. The VM manger seems to have its own DHCP server and possibly name server. It starts before the pihole container and when pihole tries to bind port 67 (DHCP), it fails because the VM manager is already binding it to what solutions are viable? (except for not using VMs, I need that feature now)
  5. I would. Last night It did that, but now that error message is gone. Here is a mail it sent to me: Event: Fix Common Problems - unraid Subject: Warnings have been found with your server.(unraid) Description: Investigate at Settings / User Utilities / Fix Common Problems Importance: warning **** The plugin UnraidDVB.plg is not known to Community Applications and is possibly incompatible with your server ****
  6. The DVB plugin is marked as incompatible now by the Common Problems plugin... why is that?
  7. I just wanted to upgrade the firmware of my LSI 9300-8i, using https://docs.broadcom.com/docs/Installer_P16_for_MSDOS_and_Windows.zip_p I copied the following files from the above ZIP to a FreeDOS bootable USB stick and booted from that: Installer(SAS3FLSH) DOS : \sas3flash_dos_rel\sas3flash.exe 02-Apr-18 Firmware : \firmware\SAS9300_8i_IT\SAS9300_8i_IT.bin 01-Aug-19 BIOS : \sasbios_rel\mptsas3.rom 05-Apr-18 Running "sas3flsh" gives "Failed to initialize PAL." and the tool exits. I found this: https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/2246526-flashing-ir-mode-to-lsi-9300-8i It did not work, the stick was not recognized as UEFI bootable even after putting the flash-tool in the root folder and also in /efi/boot/bootx64.efi Bummer.
  8. Is any body lucky using Mapquest for Day/Night ? Mapquest makes it easiest to get an account and an API key. However, unfortunately I always get "No geographical coordinates found for the given address. Please adjust.", no matter what address I put in. Somebody luckier with MapQuest? Maybe this is the reason: Mapquest seems to be really bad at locating addresses outside of the US. PS: Bing did work but it was a lot more effort to get an account.
  9. Check this video out. It explains what you can do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAh8_8u-Zw0 However, the Hassio container solution seems not be be stable in the long run. Check out this thread: https://community.home-assistant.io/t/hassio-on-unraid/59959/144 If you want HASSio in a VM, look at this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbzZjnCSEjs
  10. I think the problem is that it cannot install HA: [supervisor.docker.interface] Update image homeassistant/intel-nuc-homeassistant:landingpage to homeassistant/-homeassistant:0.108.6[0m [32m20-04-18 20:59:40 INFO (SyncWorker_9) [supervisor.docker.interface] Pull image homeassistant/-homeassistant tag 0.108.6.[0m [31m20-04-18 20:59:40 ERROR (SyncWorker_9) [supervisor.docker.interface] Can't install homeassistant/-homeassistant:0.108.6 -> 400 Client Error: Bad Request ("invalid reference format").[0m [33m20-04-18 20:59:40 WARNING (MainThread) [supervisor.homeassistant] Error on install Home Assistant. Retry in 30sec[0m I already replaced homeassistant/intel-nuc-homeassistant with homeassistant/home-assistant but that did not work either. Any ideas?
  11. I am having the same problem, but even on a fresh install of hassio-supervisor! Have you solved what to do to make it work? I am wondering why it is using amd64 code... using Intel Xeon here. It HAS installed some containers, including homeassistant. So I assume that I have to use that homeassistant container in the future instead of my current HA container which is working quite well, correct?
  12. there is no unraid container for zigbee2mqtt. which docker hub container are you using? koenkk?
  13. +1, this is essential apart from that, what are your experiences, are you happy with it? I am planning to use it with Home Assistant and Mosquitto, each in a docker container. Does that work?
  14. IT mode controller. That are great news! Thank you so much!
