First time using 6.2? please read the Original 6.2-beta Announcement Post first.

 

IMPORTANT

[*]Your server must have access to the Internet to use the unRAID 6.2 rc.

[*]Posts in this thread should be to report bugs and comment on features ONLY.

 

HOW TO REPORT A BUG

Think you've found a bug or other defect?  Ask yourself these questions before posting about it here:

[*]Have I successfully tested this bug with all my plugins disabled (booting into safe mode)?

[*]Can I recreate the bug consistently and have I documented the steps to do so?

[*]Have I downloaded my diagnostics from the unRAID webGui after the bug occurred, but before I rebooted the system?

Do not post about a bug unless you can confidently answer "Yes" to all three of those questions.  Once you can, be sure to follow these guidelines, but make sure to post as a reply on this thread, not as a new topic under defect reports (we track bug reports for beta/rc releases independent from the stable release).

 

INSTALLING AND UPDATING

If you are currently running previous 6.2-beta/rc release, clicking 'Check for Updates' on the Plugins page is the preferred way to upgrade.

 

Alternately, navigate to Plugins/Install Plugin, copy this text into the box and click Install:

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/limetech/unRAIDServer-6.2/master/unRAIDServer.plg

 

You may also Download the release and generate a fresh install.

 

RELEASE NOTES

This releases represents a feature freeze and includes bug fixes, refer to Change Log below.  Other highlights:

 

Slackware64-14.2

 

We are "in sync" with the recent release of Slackware64-14.2, meaning all unRAID OS packages are either same as in the official Slackware64-14.2 distro or newer.  However, in general, we track Slackware64 "current".

 

"Prefer" cache mode

 

To make things more flexible for our users, we’ve added a new cache mode called "Prefer" for user shares. This new mode allows users to configure their system without a cache device and when one is added, shares that are set to this mode will have their data moved off array devices and to the cache automatically.

 

No device limit for Trial

 

We lifted the 6-device limit for Trial keys.  Trial now function identically to Pro, with the exception of a 30-day time limit for Trial and the requirement of an internet connection for Trial to be able to contact our key-server to validate.

And look at all the goodies, lots of bug fixes, a few new features oft requested, some new driver support 'per user request', and CVE numbers for NAS!

 

And no pitchforks had to be confiscated lately!

Lovely to see the CVE fixes and the documentation of such. Clear and precise so appreciated and nice work all.

 

Question, is the call home still in the RC?

I'm getting this error when trying to update Plex Docker as well as CouchPotato

 

Any thoughts?

 

You on RC1?  :-\

 

Regardless try deleting your docker.img and recreating it.  This release I believe is meant to fix that bug.

You will need to delete your docker image file and recreate it along with your containers.  Your appdata for each should be fine, but the containers themselves need to be redownloaded into a complete new docker image file.

Might be worth putting a note to that effect on the top of the first post in bold Jon.  Just a thought.....

I am getting the same error as well on two dockers.

 

Does this mean I need to delete all of my dockers and their config as well, then recreate all of them with the paths I have set up or is there an easier way?

Link to post

Great news, but why not  the latest  qemu & libvirt?

 

Not sufficient time for testing.  Maybe in 6.3.  QEMU 2.6 just came out in May, so it wouldn't be fitting for us to move to an RC and add something that new that could further hold up moving to 6.2 stable.  Don't worry, we're excited about the new virtualization releases as well, but we need to cutoff somewhere.

Tempting but going to wait for final on this one I think.

 

Upgraded my 100TB server, all seems well here.

 

 

wow 100 tb server. I cant imagine having that amount of space!  :)

 

Well don't look now but I have 216TB currently and it's 70% full. Where are the 10-12TB drives?!

 

Ignore the sig, haven't updated it yet.

Link to post

I would like to confirm the Adaptec driver worked a charm and my 7805H is working perfectly - no more sata for me!

 

Thanks for putting that in at such a late point, user requests for the win!

 

Everything else seems fine and i have been able to update my dockers without deleting the main image file
