  1. Just click the advanced settings at the top right of the section. You should be able to see it then.
  2. Thanks for the update gfjardim, the MATE works great now! Thank you!
  3. I second that approach...Crashplan is an important functionality for backups and I believe it's in the best interest of Limetech to provide first class support for the Docker image just as in the case of Plex. There shouldn't be any reason the Docker image for Crashplan can't be as self sufficient for updates and the like just like Plex. This isn't to say that there won't be times that the Docker image won't need attention for something in the future, but given the reliance that some of us have on the backup functionality, we need some communications that it is being handled and an update is o
  4. I did manage to get this working again. I ended up making several changes back and forth, but in the end, here is what I think the only changes that need to be made. The ".ui_info" file in the Windows folder "C:\ProgramData\CrashPlan" needs to be the same as the one on unRaid. Apparently this was a change in the the latest version to ensure that only a known UI can connect to the engine. So, you can either copy the file over from unRaid to Windows or just copy and paste the contents of the file...either will work. Then modify the ui.properties file in "C:\Program Files\CrashPlan\conf" on Windo
  5. Hello all, I'm still struggling with this one...I have tried the configuration changes suggested to try and connect to the engine on unRaid. I also us the Crashplan Desktop Docker image and everything seems to indicate that the engine on unRaid is hung trying to upgrade from 4.2 to 4.3. So, if I try to connect remotely with the configuration changes suggested, I get the splash screen that says 4.3 (I'm assuming because the Windows instance updated successfully) and that is as far as it gets, it just hangs there and I have to kill it in the task manager. If I try going through RDP to the Cra
  6. I have run into the same situation...can't connect to the instance of Crashplan in Docker on unraid. I probably did the same as some others. I blew away the Docker image and started over to see what is going on and I was able to connect to it right after adding the container back at this point. Of course it acted just like a new installation and as soon as I tried to login to the instance it gave me a message that it was updating and then it locked. So, apparently it is trying to update, but is failing as a Docker image. I haven't been able to determine a work around...I think that something w
  7. I took the 6.0-rc2 dive from 6.0-beta14b and all went silky smooth! Had a couple of updates on docker images and checked connectivity to Plex and all is well. Looking forward to the final release of 6.0, but this looks very representative. It is very evident the changes from 5.0 to 6.0 are monumental for several reasons. Thanks goes out to the Lime Tech crew for all the hard and meticulous work that has gone into the 6.0 version! Thank you!
  8. I just wanted to pass on some kudos...the UPS support that is in 6.0-beta14b is excellent and was a much needed feature, at least for me, given how I rely so much on my unraid server. I purchased a new APC UPS and everything worked perfectly right out of the box! I think that is a huge deal. Typically no matter what I get anymore...it requires some sort of "messing around with" to get it working as expected...even if it's a toaster! The model I got is an APC Back-UPS RS 1500G. I really like it mainly because I haven't had to do a thing to it and it works perfectly with unraid. I used the link
  9. Just figured I would share the latest that I found concerning this issue...perhaps it may help someone down the road. After doing quite a bit of troubleshooting, I ended up upgrading to the latest version 6 beta (6.0-beta14b). I have been running it now for ~month without any issues whatsoever. I have not seen the MCE errors any more. I suspect that a plugin or perhaps something in the 5.0.x was causing the issue, not sure. I tried to isolate what was causing it...but the tests that I did were inconclusive in narrowing down far enough. Anyway...they didn't seem to cause any issues, but I'm sti
  10. I have been digesting your statement since you posted and I went back and looked again and that may have certainly been the case...I think I had the splitting level set one lower than it should have been. I guess that I'm still of the mindset though, that the system should be smart enough to protect us from ourselves...especially in the case of a filled disk. Currently the only thing that happens is that things stop working and you get some errors in the log that may or may not be clear to some. Thanx for the information...
  11. I have been messing around with this for a while now and I'm not sure if it is behaving as intended or not...I can at least say that it isn't behaving as I would expect. I'll do my best to explain...I have six data disks, five of which I have had for quite some time. They were getting quite full with one near 100%. I installed a new 3TB drive thinking that it would start using the free space on there as it could knowing that because of how the share splitting works that some of the other drives would continue to get writes to them. As some time went on, my near full drive filled completely and
  12. I have been seeing some MCE Hardware Errors in my logs and I'm looking for some advice on hunting them down. Here are some of the things that I have done so far to try and troubleshoot. I reverted the flash to a stock configuration (left the shares and super as is...) and rebooted. Let run for a little while and then started to install the apps that I really want to have running which is Plex and Crashplan. Once I installed Crashplan, I then saw a couple of the errors logged. I have no idea if related to the installation of Crashplan or not. I have looked up mce and apparently in a full instal
  13. Just figured I would follow up and let you know what I ran into. I copied off all the files from the cache drive...I also had some files that were pending a move. I then clicked on the format button as it was still stating that it needed to be formatted. All the buttons grayed out for a moment and then came back and it was still saying that it needed to be formatted. Have you ever had that moment that you start questioning whether you really clicked something or not...that's what happened to me. So, I clicked it again and it did the same thing again. I know it didn't format because all the dat
  14. Thank you for your thoughts. Something else interesting... There definitely appears to be something going on in the logic of the system. The cache still shows a green ball, the file system shows as unknown and wants to be formatted and when you go to a share to try and indicate to use cache or not, the option isn't there. Maybe it's just the green ball that is confused...the rest seems right if the cache really wasn't available. I'll check the file system on the USB drive and see how that is. I'll plan on copying everything off. Thanx.
  15. I did...didn't realize there was a command for that on the Tools page. I can get to all of the files from the command line in /mnt/cache (which means it has to be formatted...can't mount an unformatted file system), the apps still run such as Plex and CrashPlan which are installed on the cache drive. Hmmm...will have to do some cleanup...this installation has been around a long time through several upgrades, so not surprised. Just haven't gone back to do any house cleaning on it. Any thoughts on correcting the issue of it showing the cache as unformatted when it appare
  16. I removed a drive today that was in the array that I needed elsewhere, but it didn't have anything written to it. I rebooted it a couple of times trying to figure out how to get it to forget the drive that I removed. I did some reading and determined that I needed to run the "initconfig" to get it to rebuild the drive configuration and start a new parity sync. Not sure if it happened before I ran that or after, but nonetheless, the cache drive now shows as being unformatted...it's an SSD. When looking at the details for the drive, the file system type shows "unknown". However, I can still acce
  17. First, I'll admit I haven't read all 62 pages in this thread...phew! So, this may have already been touched on, not sure. I really like the plugin, great stuff! I like the Stats page and the graphs, but I wanted to ask about how the memory usage is represented. Currently it appears that it shows memory usage "used" and "free" as it is shown in the Top command for "used"and "free". If my assertion is true, then that isn't really an accurate representation and would lead people to believe that they may be having a memory leak because over time the graph may show that all the memory is used. That
  18. Perfect! That gave me what I needed. I don't know why I didn't think of that...thanx! Now, do you have a couple of sticks you want to donate? Told you I was cheap!
  19. I need to add RAM to my unRAID box. Currently running 184-pin 512 MB (x2), but I don't know what speed these sticks are (400/333/266). They are old enough that the stickers are no longer there. I have two open slots and according to the MB manual, I should add in the exact same size and speed. Normally I'd use something like dmidecode, but of course unraid is really stripped down, so I'm looking for other options. I'm cheap, so I'm trying to avoid having to buy two new 1GB sticks. I guess worst case is I could pull them and have them tested, but that's just really inconvenient. Suggestions?
  20. It isn't like me to really jump in these threads, but I feel like this point should be stated. I've noticed that there have been several folks that have asked for enhancements (some may make a point to say that they aren't enhancements, but nonetheless, they are changes that were not originally planned for) which is the epitome of scope creep. I deal with it quite often in my work as a software project manager for the government. These requests are coming at the 11th hour when limetech is attempting to get out the next stable release. Limetech is obviously wanting to do the right thing and inc
  21. Just wanted to pass along...I upgraded to 5.0-rc2-test and my write speeds are at the normal ~20-25 MB/s as opposed to the ~8-9 MB/s I was getting in 5.0-rc1. Everything appears to be running fine. Thanx!
  22. FYI...I downgraded to 5.0-beta14 and I'm back to ~20-25 MB/s transfers. I guess I'll just stay here until I see something different...hence beta... Thanx
  23. I have been running 5.0-beta13 for what seems to be forever now with no issues. I normally get copy speeds of 20 to 25 MB/s from my torrent box to my unraid box, no cache drive. I rolled the dice and went ahead and upgraded to rc1 and now I'm lucky to hit 9 MB/s and there is considerable stuttering during the copy operation. I don't run any add-ons and haven't changed anything other than copy over the bzimage and bzroot files. I have rebooted a couple of times just to make sure and I get the same behavior. I looked through syslog and nothing jumps out at me. The network interface still reports
  24. As part of adding 3 drives, I also had to add a SATA host controller so I would have enough ports for the drives. Took a bit to get the card to work because I had to update the bios on the card, so I had rebooted the thing what seemed a million times as part of getting everything configured correctly. So if you had asked me if I had tried rebooting, I probably would have said, of course I have! But after you said to try rebooting...I couldn't really recall if I had or not...so went ahead and rebooted and all is good! Couldn't believe I didn't already try that. Thanx a bunch!
  25. None of my shares have anything in the "Include Disk". I have always let unRAID simply use whatever space it needs to based on highwater mark, but it has always shown the total remaining space spanning all the drives, until I added these three drives. I'll be happy to share the definition...not at the house at the moment and I know if I go by memory I'll end up lying. So, when I get home I'll post that info. Thanx!
