  1. Thank you verry much my instance is up and running again
  2. Well i don't know what happened but my UR setup was stable for at least a month and now im facing mayour problems. I use UR mainly as a file dump server and as a backup reopo for my VEEAM Backup Server. I recently switched from a rock solid N40L based system to an ESXi (Plop) based system wich worked like a charm. My storage devices are connected to a M1015 HBA (2x 8 TB WD whites , 2x 480 GB Sandisk SSDs , 4x 250 GB Crucial SSDs) wich is passed throgh to the VM (the complete HBA). This worked fine till now: I know, i know .... UR doesn't "like" support vm based systems! I need some advice what the heck is goning on here: VEEAM alerted me that the backup didn't work. I investigated a bit and eventualy found out that UR was not working right. The GUI was still up and runnning and could be used. I couldn't acces the server via \\tower\ nor \\\ (Explorer) So i tried the obvious and went for a quick reboot; after the reboot i tried to access it again but couldn't... And on top of this the GUI wasn't showing up either. Logging in via the ESXi console was possible and ther was the message to go to UR IP Adress I tried this a couple of times (poweroff or reboot via the Shell) but it wouldn't come back to life :/ I looked at the logs but .... linux and me speak very different languages... I assume ther is a faulty harddrive in there somewhere (sdh? <--- nice feature woud be to not print out the device name but rather the serialnumer or some other more fedined marker. How should i figure out wich device this refers to when the macine is offline. The GUI does do this so maybe *hint*) Thank you tower-diagnostics-20200510-1230.zip
  3. Is there a way to find out what usb stick works and what doesn't. The one i have here runs fine with ESXi on multiple machines. Why doesn't the creator recognise the stick at all; WIndows does, rufus too ? thx for the reply
  4. So whats to do when the stick i dedicated for unraid doesn't get recogised in the USB creator tool? It's a bog standard 32 GB USB 3 stick from "intenso" (the small ones). I formatted it to FAT32 and the Volume is labled UNRAID (30 GB available).... Can i dl an ISO somwhere and use rufus to copy unraid to this usb stick? thx
  5. Awesome this ssems to work. The UPS icon is there and it can read the battery from my USB connected smartups 750 through unraid Now i need to figure out how to shutdown the esxi itself incase of a power failure
  6. Yes Yes .... my mistake for not reading correctly
  7. im currently trying to understand how to remove drives from the cache pool/ pool .... without loosing everything .... It would be nice if you could provide screenshots of how to do this... so that the windows script kiddies like me have it easier to understand what needs to be done.... I followed the guide to in the faq but now im lost..... 1. Stoped the array 2. unassigned the cache drives (2 in my case) --> my mistake for mot reading.... 3. set the drive slots to none 4. Started the array Nothing happened ? In the guide it said that there will be a move process after this but that didn't happen? Cache Pool is now "not mountable" because of the missing ssds.... This i think is clearly my mistake but.... Maybe its possible to implement an easier sollution like a "unassign drive and move" botton to the Main Page. One that allow the user to click on and dissable one specific drive at a time while a process in tha background takes care of the data beeing mooved Im very hesitant to try the other option about "forgetting the config", since that went bad real quick last time (complete Dataloss - Also my mistake)
  8. System is back up and working correctly after the rebuild. It even recogised disk 5 in the pseudo backplane. I'll watch this closely and as soon as the new hardware arrives ill try to move everything there. Thank you verry much for the help provided
  9. Yeah i know this system isn't great but it worked for a while. Everything works and for the age and configuration of my N40L the performance i get isn't realy that bad The N40L backplane is directly connected to the mainboard. It features a sff-8087 to 4x SATA breakout. Not a real Backplane maybe its connected internaly as a portmultiplyer? The Portmultiplyer (sylba 8 port SATA) is where all the small and the cache drives are connected to. The N40L will get its retirement eventually. New Hardware is on the way anyways; thought i try this on my N40L before investing in a more stable permanent sollution. Maybe as a backup system for my unraid based on freenas (before unraid i used that os and it also worked OK on the N40L)
  10. Ok i have some reading to do. I restarted my server and it seems as if my backplane is dying. The drive is not recognised when i leave it in the slot it was before. On a diffrent port (just sata) i clould assign the drive again and now the rebuild is in progress. 8 TB will take a day to restore Thank you for the help tower-smart-20191021-1936.ziptower-diagnostics-20191021-1737.zip
  11. I do have 2 parity disks installed (each 8 TB) wich in theory should give me 2 drive failure coverage. What do the other disks (smaller 1 TB drives and cache drives) have to do with parity or rebuilding process? I'll look at the smart values and do a SMART test. As disk 5 is inside a backplane, can i disconect this drive and connect it via a normal sata port on the same machine without loosing the array?
  12. Is there a way to inspect the drive before i put it back into unraid. Externaly, maybe via a HDD testing tool to figure out if the drive has an issue.? Does that include reboots or complete powerdowns?
  13. Yes i'll try that as soon as i get home. Drive 5 is connected va a backplane. The same backplane all the 8 TB Drives use) Is it safe to just reboot or do i have to stop the array first (Stop the array, set it to "do not start automatically" and then powercycle the unit)? Can i just power down the unit and restart it? What happens to the data that is not written to the disk yet? ( Drive 5 is beeing emulated via the parity drive; right? What if, there was data written to the emulated drive no. 5 while beeing in this state?. The data isn't that important but i'd like to know more about how this works (or not) If the drive comes back online i'll assume that unraid will try to rebuild this drive from the parity drive's (does that include the data that might have been written to the emulated disk?) Thank you for the help so far
  14. Hi, just attached the diagnostic logs tower-diagnostics-20191021-1126.zip
  15. Hi there, I'm new to unraid. Everything worked fine for a long time and i started to get compfy with my installation. I wanted to do a backup of my server with duplicati and got this running. It copied arround 900 GB of 2.5 TB to my NAS verry slowly ... but ok ... i can wait . Yesterday i went to check on my server and it displayed an error message that one of my 8 TB drives has failed. I'm not sure how to proceed now. As i've read unraid is currently emulating the one 8 TB drive via the parity drive and my data is safe for now. I need to get a spare drive today .... I dissabled all dockers besides krusader and there are no vms on that machine. This drive is brand new and successfully did the preclear..... is there a chance the drive is fine and unraid just had a "hickup". I have a second 8 TB Data drive which currently sits empty (Picture 1, last drive) I know that i can install krusader and copy over the files but because im a noob i'm not sure how to do so fasely without causing issues with the shares? ( Picrure 2) System, nextcloud and appdata are folders created by unraid. If i go with krusader can i just copy them from disk 5 to disk 6? Thank you
  16. Resurected my old n trusty N40l which now has 12 GB of DDR3 ECC installed.
  17. Is there a way to use a local (or remote) nas to point the backup to? As i understand the local filesystem can't access my nas because cloudberry is inside a docker. This means i need to mount the nas to the docker?
  18. OK i need to read up before dooing something i regret
  19. Thanks verry much! now i can access my disks under custom path/media. I can see all my disks and the cache. Now i need to figure out how to actually move files accross them Does the array need to be stopped ? As far as i found out /boot is where the flashdrive is mounted? That folder is empty in my Krusader. In the video above it contains folders and data. He just copies it accross to the array. When i initially set up unraid the gui told me that flash is shared and i disabled it accordingly (set to private). Is this wrong ? What i want to accomlish is to backup my flash drive to the array. My Flash drive is a cappy old 2 GB off brand thingie and has seen better days. Can i just shut down the array and make an image; say with acronis; of that drive and in case of failure restore this image onto a new flash drive (and transfer the key to the new devive id)? I did download CA Backup but that's way to complicated right now Silly me ... There is an actual button for this inside the flash share. So im safe for now.... now i need to tind out how to automate this
  20. Tried to follow that but the part where he configures the docker container differs already in the first path he sets. This is how my docker looks.... http:// There is no "host path 1" but a "host path 2"wich poits to "/media" (--> is that the 20 GB volume im stuck in? I can't go up or out of that directory). This might sound silly but isn't there a written out How To to the newer krusader?
  21. Hi ther I'm a silly windows user trying out unraid. I just installed this docker. Is there a how to for installing this the proper way. The docker is started and I can access the gui via vnc. So far so good but I'm stuck in a 20 GB folder and I can not access the main array. My research showed me to enter a path into the config page (host path /mnt/) but that didn't do the trick. I found the video on youtube but the unraid version he uses and the version of krusader are older than mine. I'm on the latest unraid build and downloaded the latest docker of krusader Thank you, your silly windows user ....
  22. Hi there..... first post and bigtime linux noob.... just installed the factorio docker and now if i try to connect to it, it wants a username and password. Tried every combination but i can't figure out what said username and password i am supposed to put in there .... The docker install page doesn't mention this. I looked here but can't find it here ? Is there an easy (windows) way to reset this password and username?
