Yes, WD External is share on router. But I don't have that share at all, it's renamed to WDEX. Also I don't have any mounts to WD External share in Unraid.

Where is it renamed to WDEX?  UD mount point?  UD will still have to mount it by its name on the router.

New release of UD.  Changes: When changing the mount point (which is also the share name), the mount point is checked for a duplicate of a user share or another UD device.  Samba cannot handle

While I appreciate your interest in esthetics, there is more to consider than just 'aligning' disk drive mounts: This disk is mounted without a UD script, it is probably better to put it in th

<step on soap box> Keep in mind that the Unraid array disk configuration is static and doesn't change until it is stopped.  UD has to deal with hot plugged disks, devices being dynamically

I get it!  We are trying to track it down.  You don't need to keep saying the logs keep flooding.

 

Look at the /flash/config/plugins/unassigned.devices/samba_mount.cfg file on your flash drive and see if there is a 'WD External' reference anywhere there.  If so post the contents of that file for me.  The passwords are encrypted, but you can remove the user and passwords if you' like.  It's possible there is an errant entry in the .cfg file.

There are no reference to WD External.

Is the WDEX share currently mounted?

No, keeps flooding. Every 4 seconds. Maybe there old config from previous version of plugin or similar issue?

I can't see any mounts to \\192.168.1.1\WD External in configs, UD or /boot. But something tries to mount it.

There are really no old configs.

 

Do this at a command prompt.  This copies the flash config files to a /tmp file system that UD uses to update it's information.  The flash copy is kept current whenever a change is made, but the /tmp copy may have gotten messed up.

Hello! Just a quick small bug report:

It appears that all unassigned devices share the same purchase date/warranty period. When I change one it effects all other unassigned devices under device identity properties.

That functionality is built into Unraid.  You'll have to report that bug to Unraid.

Hello, I am struggling to get this plugin installed. I am new to unraid..just set up my first NAS this weekend and I am not the most tech savvy person. I have been able to install  Community Applications, Fix common problems, Preclear Disks, and C A Auto Update. When I try and install Unassigned Drives I get a network error. See Screenshot #1. In investigating the potential problems, I discovered that I get a Proxy error when I try to go to the github website..see screen shot #2. I assume that these issues are related and this proxy error is what is causing the network error. I tried every thing under the sun from youtube and google searches to resolve this proxy error. The github website is the ONLY site that I have ever seen this error occur. Any insights or advise would greatly be appreciated. I have around 6 TBs of data to transfer onto my server and It's going to take forever if I can't attach my USB hard drives directly to the server.

tl;dr: After migrating Docker and VM storage to Unassigned Device /mnt/disks/nvme, when I stop the array and that drive unmounts, I'm left with a /mnt/disks/nvme directory containing appdata, domains, and system dirs that each contain proper-looking directory structures, but no files.

 

I recently migrated Docker and VM storage to a /mnt/disks/nvme volume mounted by the UD plugin (carefully updating all container configuration files and even the dockerMan template files along the way), and everything seems to be working well.

 

But, as described above, I've noticed strange results when I stop the array and, though /mnt/disk/nvme does unmount, I'm then left with a /mnt/disk/nvme directory containing appdata, domains and system dirs that are empty except for a handful of appropriate-looking empty subfolder trees.

 

Is this to be expected?

 

If I boot with Docker and VMs both disabled, these dirs don't appear when the array stops, suggesting to me that they are created for potential use as mountpoints, but it seems strange to me that they are created as services are stopping and drives are unmounting.

 

To be clear, these unexpected dirs aren't causing any problem I know of, except that to (lazily-written) scripts of mine, it looks like the /mnt/disks/nvme volume is still mounted 🙄

 

At any rate, I'd love to understand why this is happening, even if I shouldn't be concerned. Thanks very much for any insight, and apologies if this ultimately isn't truly a UD plugin question.

 

I'm on Unraid 6.8.3 with Unassigned Devices 2020.10.25 and Unassigned Devices Plus 2020.05.22 installed, and Destructive Mode turned off.

Hey all, I'm having an issue using a SMB share as a disk share. It's very possible I'm just entirely missing something.

I have a SMB share that I've added from a Synology server. I can see the SMB share in unassigned devices, and I can click on the mount point and see the files, but the disk isn't showing up in my disk shares, and I can't access it in krusader in order to move some files to it.

 

I can also see the disk share through unraid in my windows computer.
