Hi,

Since custom scripts stored on flash drive now do not execute, what is the suggested method to be able to use them?

 

I had my scripts executing within any directory.  How can it be configured so the script location is on the “path”?

 

Thank you.

 

H.

Easiest thing would be do copy them to /usr/local/bin as part of the boot process and then set the execute permission.   You can do this either via the config/go file on the flash or via the User Scripts plugin.

The User Scripts plugin does not have the ability to run scripts at boot.  You would have to use config/go.

Thank you guys.

 

Following Itimpi's advice, I added the following to my go file.

cp /boot/menu /usr/local/bin
cp /boot/dock /usr/local/bin
chmod u+x /usr/local/bin/menu
chmod u+x /usr/local/bin/dock

My two script files are called "menu" and "dock".

 

I use these scripts for several commands that I can easily execute as needed from the command line. The "dock" script allows me to open the command line of each docker installed.

This solution worked perfectly.

 

Thank you again.

What browser are you using (and what version).   NoVNC has always seemed a bit susceptible to not working correctly with all browsers.
 

I have personally have often had problems with noVNC in the past so I always have a free-standing VNC client as a fall-back.

You are right, it fails on chrome but it works on firefox, so I'll be using firefox for now on, thanks.

I just wanted to say that this update did break NFS for my situation. I went back after a few days and read the change log to try and figure out if something changed that broke it and saw this:

Quote

Fixed bug with hard link support.  Previously a 'stat' on two directory entries referring to same file would return different i-node numbers, thus making it look like two independent files.  This has been fixed however there is a config setting on Settings/Global Share Settings called "Tunable (support hard links)".  The default is Yes, but with certain very old media and DVD players which access shares via NFS, you may need to set this to No.

I only use NFS to store jobs archived on a old production printer (Xerox Docutech 6135 from the 90's), and unRAID worked great until that update. 

 

Thankfully the setting "Tunable (support hard links)." fixed the problem for me. 

 

I just wanted to say please don't ever remove that option! :) I know people who want it are an edge case, but it really would ruin my year if I had to try and implement and maintain a vm or docker or something just to run a NFS server for those old machine.

There's a problem with 6.8.0.

 

I'm running 6.7.2 with no issues and everytime I update to 6.8.0 the server can't get an IP address.  When I revert to 6.7.2 the problem goes away. I tried twice already. Same behaviour.

 

Have you tried reverting changes to your network.cfg file on the flash drive? I think there's been a few posts in here detailing that.

If you want community help you're probably going to have to post full diagnostics zip file to your next post.

There have been some cases were eth0 becomes for example eth1, but like mentioned if you need help we need the diags, and please start a thread on the general forum instead.

i not sure if this is to right spot to place this, but there did something goes wrong on my server running 6.8. (there are NO diagnostics!!)

 

this morning i had a "half" freezed system.

i tried to login on my VM (its always on) after put password in and pressed 'enter' its stops working, only the mouse was working, no keyboard command was accepted.

i tried to gain access thought the GUI boot, but firefox freezed while loading the webgui. then i tried to open terminal but i cant type anything there.

so, booted my notebook to gains access through ssh, did successful login to it en tried to force a reboot, got the message that says system is going to do a reboot. waited.... well reboot not started, it did nothing.

opened en new ssh terminal to get "diagnostic", waited about 30mins and no diagnostics...

so there was nothing else then a dirty reboot (i really don't like that)

it rebooted and its now doing a paritysync, no strains thing going on...

 

but, now i didn't got any diagnostics, so i setup a remote syslog server, but when i config the syslog service on unraid and saved it i had to restart rsyslog by my self, Unraid didn't restart it after i changed something in the GUI. why doesn't unraid restart it after some gui change??

"sudo /etc/rc.d/rc.rsyslogd restart" did the trick.

 

now i'm going to monitor the system logs remotely, hopefully this was a onetime thing....

 

 

edit:

Thnx to Domoticz (its running on unRAID) i found out that around 0:15h AM there where no activity recorded from my energy meter (youless LS120), around 9:55h AM it started working again (the moment i did a dirty reboot) no i know why Plex didn't do it scheduling programs... so Docker was "dead", and VM manager was almost dead...

This may or may not be related, but it seems since installing 6.8.0 (12/27). I have been getting the following email from unRAID.

 

fstrim: /mnt/cache: the discard operation is not supported

 

I have had the Dynamix SSD Trim for some time w/o issues.

 

Could anything related to 6.8.0 cause this?  The only other thing I've done to my server recently is install this expansion card to add two more HDD's but I did not move my SSD off the MB controller.

This same issue happens on my system. Unfortunately I'm currently overseas for work and only had enough time to revert back to 6.7.2before leaving

Are you sure? That error suggests SSDs are on a controller without trim support, like that LSI.

my SSD is definately not plugged into the external. I just verified. It's plugged into 1 of the two SATA ports labeled as "ASMedia® PCIe SATA controller".  I'm 99.85% sure I didn't touch any existing drives when installing the card. Just for the two new 4TB Red's I added.  I have 1 spot open on the other set labeled "AMD SB950 controller 6 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), brown"  I could swap too.

Trim doesn't work correctly on some older Asmedia controllers, and that might have changed with the newer kernel, try the board chipset ports instead.

I'd already started that process just to see.  It appears it did not change anything.

 

~# fstrim -v /mnt/cache
fstrim: /mnt/cache: the discard operation is not supported
