It is installed but I wasn't sure what I should pick for the containers, etc.  It just keeps saying looking for servers.

 

If you downloaded the Linuxserver.io Plex docker you downloaded the Plex Media Server.

 

When you launch the WebUI, it should find the Plex Media Server running on your unRAID server.  The Server it finds will be the name of your unRAID server.

 

Before determining if you have your containers mapped properly, a server has to be found.

 

The Plex docker shows as running (green play arrow on the icon) in the Docker tab, correct?

 

What is the exact error you are seeing?  Is it something like "You don't have any media servers yet.  Download and install one", or, is it something else?

Go to the appdata share and look in Plex\Library\Application Support\Plex Media Server\Crash Reports You will find folders for your previous versions named as the release version.

Yep, seems like the problem.   Not to be outdone... google.  And what do I find.... Hoopster's post from over a year ago. I see your post here regarding the iGPU not being enabled corr

yes, i have plex pass. 

 

you know another weird thing is I have my main computer that i just booted up with a plus licence (i have a pro and plus licence).   I did the exact same steps and plex works on this computer.  I noticed the docker icon looks a little different, not sure if that is a hint or anything.   see how this one just says plex but the non working one says container ID and by linuxserver?

Are you running the same version of unraid?

another thing i just noticed.. if i start up the working plex, i can go into the non-working one, log into the GUI and it instantly finds the other server and works (until i turn the working computer off).  The non-working version just doesn't make it's own server, but like I said, sees the other server.

pretty sure, i used MC and deleted it.  the non working system has an SSD cache disk which the working system doesn't.  I will check again, where is the default plex appdata?  \mnt\cache\appdata\plex  i think..
Yes but your config says it's on /mnt/user/appdata.

I just uninstalled, then deleted the plex diretory from /mnt/user/appdata/plex and /mnt/cache/appdata/plex.   when i reinstall, it makes a directory /plex in BOTH those locations.  Is it maybe a setting I have wrong with the cache drive? 

Both of those locations are the same location. cache is part of the user shares.

here is my appdata settings.. not sure if this has anything to do with it.  pretty much the only difference between the two systems is the cache drive, and of course the licence and some of the hardware :)

That looks fine, but I don't think anyone suggested that was your problem.

hey guys a little progress..   i was using an Intel server NIC in the machine.  Pulled the NIC and turned on the Realtek one in the bios and Plex installed.   Couple issues and questions.

 

-can't find where to add the media mount to add all my movies.. i think it would be \mnt\user\media but don't know where to put it.

-any reasons why the Intel card wouldn't work?  I transferred over about 750 gb of data on it and the card is fine.  maybe a setting somewhere?

 

thanks for your help guys.

Xman - sorry I left you hanging.  I have been out for the last few hours.  Glad to see you have received help and made progress.

 

For reference, here are some of my mappings in Plex:

Then on the Plex side, to access movies for example, you would add a Library, specify the media type of Movies and then select the /movies folder as seen here:
