Server Name vs IP Help

Hello everyone!

 

I’m installing the trail to test but am running into an issue that I hope you can help with. 

 

From my Window 10 machine I can login via http://192.168.1.134 without a problem but can not via http://servername 

 

Unraid server does not appear in my Network. Same 192.268.1 network of course.  

 

Thanks in advance for the help.

Typo 192.168.1.134 (standard 192.168.1.x network) Thanks again.

Are you using a static IP address or DHCP to get an address?   If static, made sure your router knows what you are doing!

I found that on MAC I can enter: http://servername.local and it works while on the PC I can enter either http://servername or http://192.168.1.135  which is the ip address for the UNRAID machine.

 

Thanks so much for taking the time to respond!

 

Now I'm having a hell'a time with two brand new 8TB Seagate Compute drives. Both failed PRECLEAR.  My goodness! ;) rerunning the process one more time incase I aborted or paused or did something stupid while the GUI was un-synced. I find that my drives disappear completely and when I HUP / reboot the OS they show up again. Don't know if that's a bug. I will see what happened with these drives in 16 HOURS .. .Doh.!!!!

Just a thought - are you sure that your power supply can handle the additional drives and that the power connections to the drives are fine. Drives should not just disappear!

Thanks for that. There are only 2 drive in the system and an SSD as of now but can handle 10-12 drives. 750W Power Supply in there right now. 2 HDs should not be an issue. I am running PRECLEAR {clear} right now on the two brand new 8TB drives to see if there are legit errors on both new drives or if it was something wonky that happened. I wish there was a TURBO button on this process. ;)

i had to add the name.local and IP to my macbook's host file to get it to see the unraid server. might try that.

under Settings -> Management Access in unRAID, there is a top level domain property that can be set to local so that unRAID will respond to name.local from any PC or OS.
