6.3.5 > 6.5.3 can't access/ping - need fixed in 24hrs


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, 


I'm visiting my parents' place where I had set up an unraid box last year. It had been 100% stable until I decided to upgrade this visit. I was hoping it would be quick and easy... 


While they do have a monitor here, I don't have a VGA cable to hook it up. Short of buying one, that isn't a possibility although I'll do it if I have to. 


There was only one docker installed - Plex - and it was updated prior to the update. I made a copy of the flash stick prior to the upgrade, so I suppose copying that back over is an option too. I'd still like to get the update done without this taking up my weekend we're supposed to be visiting. 


I  can's access the shares, I can't access the web UI and turns out, I can't ping the server by name or IP (unless the IP changed during the upgrade?) 


Any thoughts on what I might try?

Looks like the only thing I missed was deleting. dynamix.plg


Since I have a copy of the slash drive pre upgrade, my best bet is to revert. What's the quickest way to do so? Then I can run the checker and see what it come back with in terms of new version compatibility.

Did you take care of everything in the update notes linked in the first post of the release announcement?


I don't think that would matter here - this seems to be a kernel printout during the early boot. So before unRAID starts to worry about plugins etc.

I guess I would try as the message on the screen suggests and add the ‘noapic’ to the kernel boot and see if that makes any difference.


i haven’t done this myself before but I think you need to add it to the ‘append’ line for the relevant entry in the syslinux/syslinux.cfg file on the flash drive.

I had no idea what it was referring to haha. 


I'll do a quick search and see what exactly is have to add to the file and give it a shot.


Alright, so I added 

  append initrd=/bzroot noapic

And tried booting. That managed to get me to the GUI! Excellent. I much prefer resolving the issue than reverting without resolution. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. 


I still have a few hours here. Anything else I should keep an eye out for given this is older hardware running the latest version?
