FlamongOle Posted January 22, 2019 Author Share Posted January 22, 2019 (edited) Disk Location is a different disk tray layout plugin which uses the harddisk path to locate the drives. It supports only drives found by the SCSI Generic drivers, which is usually SATA and nVME including devices attached to hardware storage/raid cards. This also include a handy "Locate" function which help you allocate the tray from where the disk is installed in, if you have hotswap trays with their own HD-activity LED (or made your own custom ones). This might not work on SSD's or maybe even some other types of harddrives. You can change the direction of the trays horizontal and vertical as well as the numbering direction of the trays, make some override to add more storage "not included in the hotswap tray area", change the background colors of the different type of storage (unraid, unassigned and empty), and more. Doing changes will not delete or clear any configuration and values are mainly stored based upon serial number and model name of the harddisk. For more information and help, use the inline Help function from Unraid (this will solve most of the questions asked): It might take some time to install and update the plugin as it goes trough all your drives, more you have, longer it will take. For me it takes about 5-10 seconds with 15 harddisks, but upto 30-60 seconds if they need to wake up from standby. The plugin is primarily developed for the current stable Unraid branch and might lag a bit behind for new releases with new functions. Disk Location will be installed under "Settings" (as of Unraid 6.12 and onwards). Install the plugin via "Community Applications" plugin, search for "Disk Location" under "Apps" For manual installation or you wish to use the development build, check below under "Available Builds" DEPRECATION INFO This plugin support now only Unraid 6.12 and onwards! Development build might be installed otherwise, but is not recommended or supported! Some major changes has happened since 6.11, and the Dahsboard will be broken with the new version on an old install. Otherwise it works as expected, but must be installed with the developer package. AVAILABLE BUILDS Stable: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/olehj/disklocation/master/disklocation-master.plg Development (not recommended at all - but you know, brave ppl's!): https://raw.githubusercontent.com/olehj/disklocation/devel/disklocation-devel.plg To swap between stable and development builds, please delete existing plugin from the plugin manager before you install the other one. Be aware that database changes is NOT backwards compatible, but the old database should be backed up at /boot/config/plugins/disklocation/ for every database version (v0/v1/v2... etc.) it upgrades from. Else other info might be available via me on this forum, usually for debugging purposes. Do not update development builds automatically unless instructed to do so, unless you like risk. After testing and debugging and the new stable release containing the fixes is launched, I advice you to remove the development build and install the stable one instead!
