My Servers Early Access Plugin


Recommended Posts

  • 3 weeks later...

I just performed a MAJOR update on my server hardware, new CPU, Mainboard, and smaller NIC. I spent HOURS getting it up and running to the point where it could serve the house as router (pfSense) and Media Streamer. Along with creating Users, Naming Shares, configuring Drive Mapping and installing some of my most used pluggins and creating my Hardware Centric Gaming VM. (You know, the important stuff)

And then I moved the key over to my new thumbdrive...

I assume it pulled my backup from "My Servers"?

Did I miss a warning?

It restore a backup of my flash drive destroying all my hard work and making the whole thing unusable...

Very frustrating.

I can assure you there is no code to restore a backup over an existing installation. The only way to get a backup is to download a zip file from the My Servers dashboard, there is nothing automatic.

Exactly what steps did you take to do this? If you copied the entire /config folder, that would have overwritten your settings. If you copied just the key file that would have been safe.

I had copied just the key file... I had installed from the USB Creator onto a new USB drive and registered the trial... Then installed my most important VM's and such. Then rebooted and was the victim of my own "cleverness". 

 

Rebooting with the trial key (which needs an internet connection to verify its validity and then start the array), on a system that houses it's own router in a VM, (which requires the Array to be started to run even though it's not, itself on the Array) might have been a poor choice.

 

I wonder... Was it the existing Appdata, System, and Domain folders that made it look like it had recovered? 

 

I might have jumped the gun and made an assumption. My appologies if so.

 

My real goal here is to get rid of the Cruft, that I have created over the past year of customizations to the Go file etc. for my old system.

 

Of course mixed into all of this is troubleshooting a few little hardware conflicts on the new system.

 

Thanks for the response

Ran into the same issue but `unraid-api restart` doesn't resolve it. The flash backup also just says 'loading'. No errors in the log. No browser/console errors. Adblock and such are disabled.


Would you please remove the My Servers plugin and reinstall it? Pay attention to the wall of text :) on the install screen, it will alert you if there are any DNS issues that need to be resolved.

 

If flash backup continues to have issues, please see the release notes from yesterday:
