  1. +1 for this, i think it would be awesome. i have multiple unmanic instances running as well, doing different things and some the same. i could easily see the use case for this.
  2. running rsync to and from an unassigned device should be no problem.
  3. Also worth noting, your 3tb USB hard drive won’t be included in the array. That will have to be mounted using the “unassigned devices” plug-in (that I speculate 99% of all UnRaid users use). So if you keep anything crucial on it, as you said grab & go for emergencies, you should also plan for a backup process to the main array so it’s covered by parity.
  4. hi guys, i'm needing a little creative help, as i've hit a wall. i've got a basic script to change container network settings that needs to run after a container has started up. i've modified the script where it can either be run from inside the container, or externally on unraid. so far i've tried mapping a path outside the container, and placing the path to the script in the post arguments, per this old post here, but it failed every time. (i'm also using --cap-add=NET_ADMIN in extra parameters). i've also thought of just using a user script to execute container start, and then the sub-script, but that doesn't quite achieve the level of automation i'd like to have. if anyone has suggestions, i'm all ears. thanks
  5. Hi everyone! Over the past few months i've put together a "how-to" playlist for the different functions of Unmanic. For anyone that hasn't seen it, you can find that playlist here. More to my point: to wrap up the playlist, I thought it would be neat to visit with @Josh.5 for a few minutes over Zoom and he kindly obliged. If you'd like to see our short conversation, you can check that out here. Hope you enjoy
  6. thanks for your kind words @Masterwishx. if you don't want to use the ip address to mount remote smb share, you best bet will be to ask for some help troubleshooting the unassigned device plugin in that specific support forum here.
  7. hi @Masterwishx! that's correct, when mounting gdrive using remote smb, the host machine with the google drive application must be online for unraid to find and use it. there are some containers in community applications that allow you to access your gdrive, but after looking at one or two of them, i was not impressed with the security work arounds incorporated by the containers. in fact, one container author even offered full disclosure that his private server was used to handle some of the traffic involved. while i appreciate that disclosure, i felt it was too insecure. for now, i still think this is the best/ safest method.
  8. I recently had a similar issue, josh will be able to confirm but it looks like the watcher overloaded. Try disabling and restarting.
  9. @Yekul There is also a way to do this manually. disable the "scan on start" option in the general settings, save and submit, then restart the container. then go back to the settings, and point the library path at whatever specific folder you want. go back to the dashboard, and at your discretion, hit the options tab and "rescan library now". this will keep the entire library path from being scanned automatically, and offer a little more control over specific folders to be scanned and transcoded manually, along with any cron schedules you apply.
  10. no problem. there's a bit of a learning curve if you're new to unraid or linux in general. but i think you'll find it's well worth it and a fun learning experience. welcome to the forums!
  11. hi @static0shock, this forum is for bug reporting, probably best to repost here in the general support forum where other users can also chime in with potential solutions. As for the gpu support on the 11th gen, you said you're not seeing the gpu at all with that one, right? as if maybe the intel_gpu_top plugin isn't working? if that's the case, best to head here to the support forum for that specific plugin. i inquired to the plugin author about it yesterday, so that should be a good jumping off point where he can help you troubleshoot that, you should see my post. as for the i3 gpu, open up a console window into the plex container (not the unraid terminal) and type cd dev/ then post your output in the new post on the general forum. be sure to tag me there and we'll see if we can go from there.
  12. just found the new AMD top plugin, awesome job! i'd like to test some containers using gpu transcoding (afaik plex doesn't support amd hardware acceleration, right?). what value would we add to the extra perimeters section of the containers to enable an amd gpu? --device=/dev/dri ?
