Finding the Flash GUID on Beta 5


Recommended Posts

I'm not normally so clueless so I'm hoping I'm just looking in the wrong place.

 

I have just installed my first UnRaid server, I chose to go 5.0 Beta 11 because I expect to be rebuilding at some point anyway so why not play with the latest.

 

I'm trying to find my Flash GUID so I can purchase a key and enablke my other drives but I can only find instructions for 4.7 and they don't seem to work for 5.0

 

Can anyone point me in the right direction ?

Utils tab

Vars

Scroll down to near the bottom to:

[var] => Array

  [flashGUID] => xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Main tab ==> click on 'flash' ==> Under 'flash settings' is listed the GUID

OK, now I'm about to tell myself I'm an idiot.....

 

Now that I stop and think about what I am doing, the Flash GUID that I am giving to buy a licence is locked to the USB Drive I am using at the moment right ?  And I guess it's not transferable ?

 

So instead of using a 4Gb drive I was going to buy tomorrow, I am now locked into using my 16Gb flash drive and it needs to remain on this server rendering it useless to me for anything other than UnRaid ?!?!?!

The key is not tied to the free version. Wait until you receive the 4GB USB; copy the files over from the 16GB...then purchase the key

btw,

 

 I just need to see how easy it will be to move the USB internally so it doesn't stick out.

 

Many buy a item similar to these to mount it directly off the MB

Thanks mbryanr.  I had registered the GUID which is what my concern was.  No drama, Tom agreed to help me out with no issues.

 

I like the onboard USB plugs, now I just have to see if I can find them where I am.

 

Not sure I want to open up my server though, it's all a bit tight in there.
