Unassigned Devices - Managing Disk Drives and Remote Shares Outside of The Unraid Array

A reboot seems to heal things for now.

I can see the Unassigned devices listed under Main now. 

 

Another question about the plugin:

How come the Utilization bar is not populated in the Dashboard but is populated in the Main tab?

 

Dashboard:

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

The UD plugin only manages the 'Unassigned Devices' tab.  The Dashboard is stock Unraid and not managed by UD,

There are many plugins that add to the Dashboard. The Plex Streams plugin is just one example. It has it's own Tab as well as a Dashboard widget

Are you saying that you can't add to the UD widget in the Dashboard or that you don't want to (which is fine if that's the case)?

Neither.  It would be best done as a feature request for Unraid.

Hi

 

I think I know the answer to this question but I'm a noob at this and just wanted to make sure.

 

I have an encrypted LUKS disc in a USB enclosure that I created with OMV (Open Media Vault). I thought I could just plug it into my Unraid box and it would show up as encrypted, then enter the passphrase in Unassigned Devices etc. But it shows up as a new disc with no padlock and the only option is to format it.

 

The file system on the OMV disk is ext4 so is that the reason? For Unraid it needs to be xfs or btrfs?

 

Thanks

RE: Backup of some folders in unraid array to unassigned hard drives:

 

My unraid is at home.  As a backup stategy, I am thinking after backing up certain folders in the array to the UD drives, I would remove the UD drives and take them to store at my work place.   I was thinking  a full backup once a year, and incremental backups every 3 months.  

 

Should I use urbackup docker?  Or do it from Windows 10 using Macrium Reflect?  Or other recommendation?  Thanks.

Why not use the backup script in the fist post of this thread?  It can be modified to include as many shares/folders/disks as you want.  I use it to backup 4 shares to a 14TB external USB drive which is formatted NTFS so in the worst case, it can also be accessed via Windows.

Because I do not understand those scripts.  I don't speak Linux.  Maybe I should try harder.

 

Another docker option with GUI is LuckyBackup.  Does anyone use it, or something with GUI?

It appears that I'm getting this error on one of remote servers where I have SMB shares mapped.

 

Any thoughts or info I can get you to help troubleshoot?  I've rebooted the remote NAS as well as restarted unRAID.

I have 3 NFS mounts. One of them keeps unmounting.  All of them are pointing to shares at the same destination.  Any ideas why one of them is unmounting on it's own?

Hello! 

 

I'm struggling to get my scratch disk to automount on boot via the unassigned device plugin. It seems like this is a standard usage but it isnt quite working for me. I'm not sure what "mountpoint 'temp' is not set to auto mount." means in this context. I believe I have filled out all the sliders properly. 

 

Is the intent that people do a script to mount via fstab? Am I missing something? I've already been burned once by treating Unraid like a bog standard linux distro so I am gun shy of trying to punch my way through this problem with general linux knowledge. 

 

Cheers!

Since Update 6.9.0 my unassigned drive /dev/sdc never spins down (array drives can sleep most oft the time). I tried to unmount and wait - no success. I used this sata drive as backup destination with borgmatic docker container. No other process does any r/w operations to the mountpoint. I checked open files and cant find any access - but the drive is rotating anytime.

What can i do here?

Can you spin it down manually by clicking on the disk ball icon?
