    I am suffering from this error so if any details are needed ping me and I can test or play with my system. Thanks David
  2. New to unRAID...a few questions...

    Yes unRAID will format a blank disk (or at least give you the option to). For setting up the easiest option is to use the WebUI to create one or more shares (I have several shares such as "Media", "Personal", "Software" and "Backup" but up to you what to create. If your existing NAS is working the easiest way to copy files is simply to connect to the shares using another client and drag them from one to another. Not necessarily the most efficient but certainly simple. Yes you can create your initial array with as few disks as you like (min is 1) and you can do that without any parity drive. Ensure you plan for your largest drive to be available to become the parity drive.
  3. New to unRAID...a few questions...

    Not sure if this has already been answered but the tech specs show the PSU in a Dell T410 is a 580w so max power draw on the UK 240v would be about 2.5A therefore a 5A fused lead would be sufficient. I know there have already been several responses, but it sounds to me like your system is quiet like mine (although I acquired an HP MicroServer with a Xeon E3-1220 CPU) and I went through the slow process of migrating from older disks to newer ones. The basic plan was use my second largest HDD as the first installed (this will make sense later) and format it as a single drive in unRAID. Copy across my local network from other systems to free up my next largest (always keeping the larges drive outside of unRAID). Each time a drive was empty I formatted it and added it to unRAID as an additional array drive increasing the capacity. When all data was on the unRAID server array I added the last drive (which was the largest I own) and configured that as the parity drive (see told you it would make sense). I have since failed and replaced drives in the server to gradually to increase capacity but otherwise little has changed. I run Plex and a few other dockers to run my media life on the server and everything is quite stable and simple.
  4. Slow GUI (all of a sudden)

    Thank you. I had my doubts but the server was quiet enought to stop everything this morning, the DNS is now and and everything is working at full speed. I really wonder what Sky broke in their DNS resolution but will leave my curiosity alone for now
  5. Slow GUI (all of a sudden)

    Where did you change your DNS settings? In the unRAID configuration or at the router?
  6. Slow GUI (all of a sudden)

    Shutdown, removed memory stick, put in my Windows 10 desktop. No issues. Backup of USB taken. Reinserted in server and booted again. Took absolutely ages to start, but I assume this was waiting for the docker images to all start or the UI to update once they had.
  7. Slow GUI (all of a sudden)

    not sure that's my issue. both unraid from a console session and inside the docker images can resolve DNS and ping without issue.
  8. Slow GUI (all of a sudden)

    I updated a few docker images on Thursday which is when I noticed this issue so sure it won't help, but if you can get a network trace while you are doing it then that may?
  9. Slow GUI (all of a sudden)

    I've not managed to work this out (I don't have traffic monitoring on my home network) but my theory is that during the process of looking at docker related pages in the unRAID UI a call is going to somewhere on the internet which is timing out before the UI is returned. I am on Sky BB so was looking for correlations. I am currently trying to work out how to start monitoring network traffic (a-la-wireshark) on a network without a managed switch. Can anyone who knows more about unRAID than me comment on whether I am chasing dragons?
  10. Slow GUI (all of a sudden)

    I will shut the server down this morning and check.
  11. Slow GUI (all of a sudden)

    Are you by chance UK based with Sky broadband? I think the issue may be related to unRAID itself accessing the internet...
  12. Slow GUI (all of a sudden)

    Not tried to install a a plugin but if I try to update or check for updates on the plugins the same happens.
  13. Slow GUI (all of a sudden)

    This is going to sound really odd, and I have been unable to work out what is going on so hope someone can help me. Firstly I will say that unRAID is (and has been) running really well for me. I have a simple setup which is an HP MicroServer with 4xHDD (3d+1p), 1xSSD (cache) running unRAID 6.3.5. Today when I was starting my periodic updates (docker image updates & plugin updates) the unRAID gui started being really unresponsive. All of the docers run fine, share access is fine but any time I try to load a page in the unRAID GUI which shows anything to do with Docker images it takes AGES for the page to load. Most pages load in <2 seconds, ones with Docker stuff on (e.g. Docker or Dashboard) well over 2 minutes. I rebooted the server with a clean shutdown of each docker image, stop of the array, etc. and all started back up fine (although maybe slower than normal) so thought I would ask the question. I am seeing some odd display of the docker images (missing icons - see screenshot) and have attached a diagnostics in case this helps. Anyone able to point me at what may have started causing this? it is a real pain waiting for the ui to load when checking things. davidserver-diagnostics-20170922-1822.zip

  15. Unresponsive unRAID v6.3.4

    Today I came home from work to find my unRAID server completely unresponsive, and while I get it online again just hoped someone would look over the logs to see if there is an obvious reason why. Things I did to test the server before hard shutdown: 1. Tried to load web admin. No response just spinning browser wait. 2. SSH to server. Got login prompt but after entering password never returned a prompt to enter commands 3. HP iLO connection to console. Got login prompt but after entering password never returned a prompt to enter commands (same as SSH). 4. momentary power button press (through iLO). Saw message on console & SSH warning of shutdown but nothing stopped and the server did not do clean shutdown (waited 15 minutes) 5. disconnected network cables. waited a minute connected one, repeated logon attempts, nothing so tried with other network connection, nothing. 6. Hard power off I saved the first diagnostics after power on but before starting the array but then realised I should probably start the array so have done so in maintenance mode, then stopped, done a clean reboot, started the array in normal mode and then grabbed the diagnostics again. It is about now I wish there was a way to start the array with the disks being mounted but prevent my docker images from starting automatically. Everything seems to have come up ok, but just starting a parity check (not writing changes) to make sure all the disks are OK. If anyone has any suggestions for me to check, fix or otherwise I would appreciate it. David davidserver-diagnostics-20170602-2017.zip davidserver-diagnostics-20170602-2028.zip
