  1. Not sure if this is an example of correlation not equaling causation, or not, but system crashed twice while deleting and I lost one of the HDDs in my system. Currently doing a data-rebuild on a new HDD.
  2. Thank you, since they aren't known to zoneminder, I am using Midnight Commander to delete, it is slow but seems to be working. I will update. Chas
  3. Hello, this worked but unfortunately I used the same share for data hoping that the new install would find the old events and images. This didn't work out so well. All of the old images are still on the share but ZM doesn't see them so I can't delete them with a filter. Unless I am completely failing to comprehend something here. I can't find a way to delete the terabytes of data from the drive, quickly and or easily. Any suggestions are appreciated. Chas
  4. The database fails to start, zoneminder fails to start. Do I need to delete the folder and start over?
  5. I am having a real hard time with this. I did service mysql start, it failed. I posted the error messages, and searched them on the ZM forum but I make very little sense out of what folks are saying there. Most of the issues were months ago, mine started with the update two days ago. If anyone has any ideas of where to look for the answer, id appreciate it
  6. Thank you for the directions. I followed them and, of course it worked. MySql and Zoneminder not started. *** Running /etc/my_init.d/ *** Booting runit daemon... *** Runit started as PID 723 Apr 10 10:19:59 c79345477ec2 cron[726]: (CRON) INFO (pidfile fd = 3) Apr 10 10:19:59 c79345477ec2 cron[726]: (CRON) INFO (Running @reboot jobs) Apr 10 10:21:35 c79345477ec2 zmpkg[1221]: ERR [Error reconnecting to db: errstr:Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2) error val:] Apr 10 10:21:35 c79345477e
  7. I have found some info that directed me to but I can find no instructions on how to Create an environment variable: NO_START_ZM="1" Being a complete rook, I tried, No Joy whatsoever. Any directions/suggestions would be appreciated.
  8. Hello, My zoneminder updated today, and the updated docker failed to start. Anyone have any suggestions, Zoneminder has been working for me really well for a couple of years.

  9. Thank you for your help, that worked perfectly.Server booted with the GUI first try.
  10. Thanks, what am I missing? I am running a dell R710 with an onboard chip: NamePowerEdge R710 MGA G200eW WPCM450 ManufacturerMatrox Electronics Systems Ltd. and a Nvidia P2000. My monitor is connected to the onboard vga. I see the screen up until the gui loads and then it is just a blank screen, no curser. OS Version 6.9.1 2021-03-08 Nvidia plugin 2021.03.22 v460.67
  11. Ich777, any movement on this issue? I have been quietly monitoring looking for a response but it's been quiet for a while. Chas
  12. I've got as much time as it takes, the system is working fine, it is just that the server is now headless and that is not an issue at all. Thank you for what you are doing and for any assistance that you can give me. I just wanted to update this so that you have all of the info possible. I was able to get access to the display ports on the nvidia card and I am not getting the unraid gui via the display port on the nvidia card either. Chas
  13. Let me start by saying I apologize for my ignorance. I checked the Bios of my Dell r710 and did not see a primary graphics card setting Here are the pages I found that involve graphics. Booting into cli works, ctrl-alt-f1 works and booting into safe-mode without plugins the display works as well. Does the new plugin disable the onboard graphic when it enables the nvidia card? I'm not able to get output from the display port on the nvidia card either due to the placement of the card in they chassis. The Nvidia card was added for plex transcoding only.
  14. The only reason that I tried safe mode was to see if the display worked. The odd part was not being able to change the boot screen at all. Ok here is where the operator malfunction really comes into the equation, I don't know if the display on the server was working immediately after the upgrade to 6.9.1. I did the upgrade remotely from a desktop machine. The server monitor is normally turned off, only turned on when there is a need to do something directly on that machine. Chas
  15. Hello, I seem to be missing something. Yesterday I upgraded to 6.9.1 from 6.9.0-rc2 plex and the nvidia driver are working perfectly. when my system rebooted overnight I lost the webgui on the server itself. I am running a dell r710 with a p2000for transcoding. ctrl-alt-f1 does open the console My nvidia plugin is 21.03.10 I tried to choose safemode w/gui but was unable to make changes. Don't get me wrong, I am absolutely sure that this is a case of operator malfunction, but I have no idea what I am doing wrong. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
