ioctl(SIOCGIFHWADDR): Bad address

Just noticed this error when running unraid with a monitor. Can't see it anywhere on the log though and I'm not sure what it means.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Unraid Monitor:

root@Box:~# ioctl(SIOCGIFHWADDR): Bad address
ioctl(SIOCGIFHWADDR): Bad address
ioctl(SIOCGIFHWADDR): Bad address
ioctl(SIOCGIFHWADDR): Bad address
ioctl(SIOCGIFHWADDR): Bad address
ioctl(SIOCGIFHWADDR): Bad address
ioctl(SIOCGIFHWADDR): Bad address
ioctl(SIOCGIFHWADDR): Bad address
ioctl(SIOCGIFHWADDR): Bad address
ioctl(SIOCGIFHWADDR): Bad address

I've been seeing this exact issue as well for a few weeks now. Currently, I'm running 6.3.0-rc6.

I'd be running rc6 also since I updated through the plugins section

Any answer for this? I started seeing it when I updated from 6.2.4 to 6.3.0.

Wondering if it isn't related to your wrong csrf_errors.

 

Two plugins that are questionable

 

dynamix.plg (not needed and even though its listed as not installing, there has been a report in the RC9 thread about it causing problems)

ssh.plg - Not sure if the author has tested this.

 

Safe mode should be able to narrow this problem down further

I have the same error appearing after boot since upgrading from 6.2.4 to 6.3.0.

I've attached a system log taken after a reboot.

To save you digging through the log for it, I have the following plugins installed:

CA Auto Update Applications

CA Backup / Restore Appdata

CA Cleanup Appdata

Community Applications

Dynamix Cache Directories

Dynamix SSD TRIM

Dynamix System Statistics

Dynamix webGui (obvs)

Preclear Disks

Recycle Bin

Statistics

Unassigned Devices

 

Were any of these what you meant by 'dynamix.plg', Squid?

You also have the dynamix.plg file (and I had to go through the syslog to see it  :(  ) 

 

It *shouldn't* affect anything, but is completely safe to delete.  On the flashdrive, config/plugins/dynamix.plg

 

Merely a shot in the dark, and on a quick search of google, appears to be driver related, so deleting the file probably won't fix it.  (And if everything is running fine, may be harmless -> but I'm not an expert)

FYI I just booted to safe mode and get the same error at boot.

 

Is the dynamic.plg the web interface? Will that leave me interfaceless?

Thanks for your help (and prompt reply!)

Its an older version from when an update was available and installed.  Deleting it doesn't affect anything

Cheers. Will delete it in a moment.

FWIW I noticed that the error stops after I stop the array.

 

EDIT: Deleted dynamix.plg while in safe mode, then rebooted. I still get the error.

Dunno if it's any help, but I also just noticed that every time I open the web GUI or change pages in the GUI, it adds another error line to the console.

So I'm guessing that the error is appearing at every UI refresh?

The lines appear by themselves every 60 seconds - even after I  disabled the 'Page update frequency'.

Which means that its an issue with a background polling operation unRaid is doing.  What by chance is the setting for Settings - Disk Settings - Poll Attributes?

 

Curious more than anything else because at this point there's nothing that you're going to be able to do about it though...

Same here.

 

 

WebGUI locks up after 24 hours. Shares and SSH access are still available. Just no WebGUI.

Deleted dynamix.plg

Rebooted into safe mode. Every time I click on the webGUI the line " ioctl(SIOCGIFHWADDR): Bad address" appears in the console. Every single click generates a line and they sometimes appear spontaneously. Maybe on refresh.

 

 

Any ideas? This looks like a bug.

I'm having the same issue.  Never seen it while I was on 6.2.4 or below, just started with the 6.3.0 version.

 

I've removed all plugins except:

CA Auto Update

CA Backup/Restore

CA Cleanup AppData

Community Applications

 

I run a few dockers and no VMs.

 

The ioctl(SIOCGIFHWADDR) error comes up with any web page load.

 

I am running in a VM but haven't had any issues with that in the past. (ESXi 6.0 + vCenter 6.5)

 

Any suggestions?  I'm happy to try a few things.

 

Cheers.

 

edit: added diags.

Poll attributes is the default of 1800.

 

Let's hope for a resolution soon.

I'm getting this in SAFE-mode. I've started a thread under Defect Reports.

 

I get it in safe mode, too. I'll go subscribe to your thread now.

Isn't that the call for looking up a MAC address (HWADDR)?

 

So what in unRAID uses the MAC address? DHCP - try a static address. Bonding? - try disabling it.

 

(Sorry, I'm just thinking aloud.)
