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

Recommended Posts

Unraid 6.10 has been released.  There are some changes to UD.  You can see them here:

 

With the latest release of UD, the minimum version of Unraid supported is now 6.9.  There are some enhancements in 6.9 ad 6.10 that UD uses for new features.  I've removed the spin down timer used in Unraid versions prior to 6.9.

@dlandon with the latest update I got two missing devices but they are both connected:

If I remove the Devices from the Historical Devices the config from the devices is also removed like:

image.png.ec0f5efa56ebd62002465a3b240d0fe9.png

(This screenshot shows with one device removed from the Historical Devices)

 

 

What's also strange is that if I'm only clicking the slider to show the partitions (slider enabled), which BTW are showing anyways, I get this screen:

but the slider in the settings from the disk look like this (seems like this isn't saved):

I'm on Unraid 6.10.0 and UD is version: 2022.05.17

Look carefully at the serial no (id).  The Historical devices have spaces, the new ud devices have underscore.  This is because ud has changed to using the devs.ini id.  They are the same devices, ud just thinks they are different devices.  Apply your settings to the new found devices and then remove the historical devices.

I have done this already twice, here is a screenshot after the removal:

Here is a screenshot after applying the new setting (only Passed through was enabled and show Partitions disabled):

And here after I've assigned it to the second device:

If I remove the devices from the Historical Devices and re add it it's the same over and over again.

Should I send you my ini file, haven't looked at it yet...

PM this file to me.  Don't post it here as it has some private informatiuon.

 

/flash/config/plugins/unassigned.devices/unassigned.devices.cfg

 

I suspect it may have an issue as I can't reproduce your problem.

Update UD.  I think I may have found it.

Thank you, can confirm everything is working after deleting the drives from Historical Devices and applying the settings again! :)

loki-diagnostics-20220518-1234.zipHi all, my first time asking for support so not sure I'm in the right thread, I've been having issue with a SMB mount to my nas, I switched to NFS and was good for a while however it now started again. All of my shares are showing 0 bytes and I can't navigate to them as they are disconnected, I included a screeshot and what the log is freaking out about.

I see several issues.  You are getting general protection faults:

I don't know where these gpfs are coming from, but I suspect the preclear disk plugin.

 

Remove the preclear disk plugin.  There is a replacement that works a lot better.  You can install it from CA.

preclear.disk.plg - 2021.04.11  (Up to date)  (Incompatible)

 

These log entries are from the remote server being non-responsive or network issues:

May 18 11:57:34 Loki unassigned.devices: Error: shell_exec(/bin/df '/mnt/remotes/DS918_Unraid' --output=size,used,avail | /bin/grep -v '1K-blocks' 2>/dev/null) took longer than 5s!

Thank you for fast reply !
I updated the plugin to the new replacement and rebooted the server, will monitor and see what happens, If the remote server is the issue I'm not sure what's going on, it's a DS918 connected to a switch on same network and never has any problems, I'm not sure what can cause the NAS to stop communicating with unraid and cause shares issues, any suggestions ?

Since upgrading to unRAID 6.10.0 and the latest version of the UD plugin, my external backup drive (14TB Easystore NTFS) will not mount and run the backup script.  I deleted it from historical devices, plugged it in and configured it again.  No change.

 

Worked great in unRAID 6.9.2 and prior to updating UD.

 

If I plug it in to a WIndows PC, everything appears as it should.

It looks like you didn't unmount the disk before you physically removed it.  If the mount button shows a not 'Unmount', you'll need to reboot to clear it up.  Don't just pull the disk out and expect it to work when you plug it back in.

Yes, I should have caught that.  The configuration of the disk was incorrect in UD after the upgrade.  After mounting it manually, I did in fact unplug it without unmounting and removing from historical devices.  A reboot of the server cleared everything up and it is working properly now.

 

I was so used to just unplugging it after the backup and automatic unmount that I forgot to manually unmount.

 

Thanks for pointing out the obvious as I missed that.  😀

To be honest, I don't remember removing the external drive during or after updating the plugin, I did try a few different things that may have included that though. Nevertheless, I had to restart for the stable 6.10 update anyway, so I'll keep this in mind going forward.

 

Thanks.

No.  Just perform the update.  Quick and easy,

Nothing else puts up a banner. Especially something that is updated so frequently. Will grab source and take out.

Lots of plugins put up the banner including: CA, File Manager, FCP, Recycle Bin, etc.

 

The changes recently were to fix some issues with the Unraid 6.10 release and changed ids of UD devices.

 

When I see something that causes users issues, I will release an update.  I try not to do a lot of unnecessary updates, but sometimes it's really necessary.

 

The idea behind the banner is so users will keep plugins up to date.  If that is not done, there will be posts about issues that have already been solved because users don't update.

I guess I don't use anything else that shows a banner. No worries, I took it out.

Hey,

 

After my server updated to latest version of Unraid and UD my 2 NAS drives that I had mounted previously no longer mount. I believe this is because the NAS bay is pretty old (and no longer supported as of 2018) and it's SMB version is old.

 

I'm getting the following errors in the system logs when attempting to mount:

 

May 20 17:07:50 Jarvis kernel: CIFS: Attempting to mount \\HULK\Volume_1 May 20 17:07:50 Jarvis kernel: CIFS: VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -112 
May 20 17:07:50 Jarvis unassigned.devices: SMB default protocol mount failed: 'mount error: Server abruptly closed the connection. This can happen if the server does not support the SMB version you are trying to use. The default SMB version recently changed from SMB1 to SMB2.1 and above. Try mounting with vers=1.0. mount error(112): Host is down Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs) and kernel log messages (dmesg) '. 
May 20 17:07:50 Jarvis unassigned.devices: Mount SMB share '//HULK/Volume_1' using SMB 3.1.1 protocol. 
May 20 17:07:50 Jarvis unassigned.devices: Mount SMB command: /sbin/mount -t cifs -o rw,noserverino,nounix,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,uid=99,gid=100,vers=3.1.1,credentials='/tmp/unassigned.devices/credentials_Volume_1' '//HULK/Volume_1' '/mnt/remotes/HULK_Volume_1'

 

Now my problem is, I have no clue where I can change the SMB version. Earlier posts say there's a force version option in UD settings but that seems to have gone in recent updates. Anyone have any help on how to action what the log is suggesting?

Thank you.

Go to Settings->SMB and enable NetBIOS and UD will use SMB1 if none of the other protocols will mount.
