Hi

Thanks for teply, unfortunatly didnt work.

:-(

Then you really need to post screen shots of the applicable settings of the apps in question, along with the volume mappings (ie: screen shot of what appears when you edit the container)

/movies isn't mapped in sabnzbd, so it'll be created in your docker container where you have no access to it.

 

Neither is /tv or /music for that matter..

Hi

thank you very much for reply, can you please explain in more detail what I need to do, I am use to windows system, I bought UNRAID and paid for UNRAID to set up dockers for me - I really appreciate your help.

Thanks

You need to add a container volume path of /movies mapped to /mnt/user/movies (or whatever your share is actually called

 

Docker containers only have access to folders which you explicitly allow them access to.  And this is done via the container & host mappings on the edit container screen. 

 

The host volume is the path to the share.  The container volume is where the actual app looks at.  IE: When you tell the container to look at /movies, it will translate that to look at /mnt/user/movies as an example

 

Check out the Docker FAQ for some more attempts at explaining all of this.  Host / Container volume mappings is one of those things that's a bitch to explain, but once you understand it, you'll be amazed at actually how simple it is to understand.

Before you go any further, stop and take a read here.  You need to get your head around folder mappings otherwise you'll struggle with any container...

Sounds like they got you up and running with a basic setup, but you're modifying it a bit now.  So you're hitting the same stumbling blocks everyone hits when migrating to docker containers, you're just hitting them a little later as you had someone do the first bits for you..

 

You'll get there.  You just need to get your head around folder mappings.  Once you do, it's easy.

Hi

thank you, but no, I installed system and dokers and they dealt with mappings and port conflicts during session.

but i will read docker links you sent shortly when i get up.

  thanks again

Hi

I read through them but they all seem contradictory, with I use this way and others do this way, this being my issue (I think) => http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=40937.msg387919#msg387919

 

But having changed from windows server 2012 R2 for no other reason than I liked the look of unraid, with my pocket $150 lighter and my server mostly offline for 2 weeks I am begining to think this was no more than a folly. My thinking is that if Mr Panozzo's version of the mappings didn't work what chance do I have with my very limited understanding.

  I am giving it one last go this morning then, off back to Mr Gates with tail between legs, thank you very much for your help however, much appreciated.

OK firstly don't give up, gates is the devil in disguise :-) seriously though this is a big change for you you need to just take baby steps and you will gain more confidence quickly.

 

So onto you're issue, one thing you need to ensure is that the host side path is the same for /downloads for ALL dockers. I've spotted this isn't the case, sabnzbd is using /mnt/user/downloads whereas sonarr is using a different path, these need to be the same so change sonarr to use the same as sabnzbd, make sure to reconfigure sonarr to use the new path.

 

Just to be clear the application can drill down the path but when defining the path in unraid ui they must be consistent for the host.

 

This is something that tripped me up when I first started out with docker containers, and it looks like even LT are unaware of this needing to be consistent  across containers

Bit more encouragement....

 

I used Windows Home Server V1 until 2011 then switched to Unraid for my server, then after a couple of years on V5 I switched to WHS 2011 for exactly the reason you're telling us "I was a Windows guy" I stayed for a year before coming back to Unraid and have since made massive in roads in understanding Linux.  Would I go back to Windows?  No.

 

In fact I now dual boot Ubuntu & Windows 10 on my laptop and eventually would like to ditch Windows entirely.

 

And to make it clear, I don't work in tech at all, I'm purely a home user.

 

The problem you're facing is understanding folder maPs, once it clicks, honestly you'll be fine.  We all went through this stage.

Hi Guys

Thanks for the encouragement, much appreciated. I really am trying and thought I had it (when Mr Panozzo was showing me in session) but I am very concerned changing all the things he did.

The whole thing looks great, works great and is perfect, XFS and Docker I love, but after it downloaded 13gig of media through the night I cannot find it and feel so helpless as I just don't get it.  >:( >:(>:(

Anyway thanks again for the words of encouragement and wisdom - I am off work today and am seriously trying to get it working.

Many thanks

You're downloading into /downloads and then setting it to move it into /tv or /movies problem is neither /tv or /movies exist in the nzbget container so it creates the folders INSIDE the docker.img image.  Any folder you want any container to have access to MUST be mapped in the container config.

Hi

Thank you, so changed mappings in all to /mnt/user/downloads, so what do I need to change in SAB catagories?

Many thanks

How are the categories defined at the moment?

Edit sorry I see the screenshot, OK you need to define the folders something like this (watch the case as Linux is case sensitive):-

/downloads/movies

/downloads/tv

/downloads/music

Just take things slowly would be my main advise, i would advise starting one docker at a time, get that one docker working and make sure you understand how its  working (volume mappings, port mappings etc) then start another and link them together, get that working and onto the next. Unfortunately the downside of having somebody else set this up is that when it goes wrong you don't know how it all works and thus can't fix it easily.

Hi

Thank you, unfortunatly it never went right, but I didn't know until it start downloading.

Update - changed to settings above but still not working  :-X Can you please tell me exactly what screenshots needed to see where its going wrong.

My other worry is we now have about 20gig of downloads somewhere on my system taking up space.

Can you expand on what you mean by not working, you mean it's not in /downloads/<the category>

As regards where the 'missing' files are.  They're in your Sonarr container.  Best thing to do is delete the container and repull it.  You won't lose your config.
