What is Unraid and how to build an Unraid media server

Show off your HTPC builds, NAS Servers, and any other hardware. Great place to ask for hardware help too.

Sounds to me like you migrated just in the nick of time. Maybe the stress of offloading the data was a bit (or byte) too far.

Maybe. Still, I’m glad that my new Unraid servers are fully repairable and serviceable by myself, whatever happens.
I need to find a way to backup though, even if I put 8 4TB in the QNAP, they won’t give me much space (28tb in Raid 5). Not enough for my 4K Blu-ray shares.

I don't guess you've read my new post from yesterday yet: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=489

Might give you some ideas. Combined with something like this adapter and you can find a way to use all your drives outside of your NAS devices: https://www.amazon.com/SATA-Drive-Adapt ... 106&sr=8-4

Parity Check finished in the standard time, no discernable difference.

So far, everything is working well. But I thought the same a few weeks ago. Looking back, I realize now that the call trace errors don't crop up for 1-2 weeks. Now begins the waiting game.

Side note, I noticed that this forum thread is the most viewed topic on this website, by far. Approaching 121-thousand views. Figures it would take a popular solution like Unraid to drive traffic to this site. Similarly, the MPC optimization tutorial is #3 with over 42k views.

Fingers crossed!

Cool that this thread is popular, it's full of great advice (mostly from you) so no wonder.

I've noticed something weird with the CCC installed in the Unraid VM, it's set to export changes every 5 minutes but it doesn't. I have to run an export manually (all the changes or full export) to get new titles to show on the various PCs. Any idea why, and would you like me to start a separate thread about this?

Did you configure the auto start?

If that's not it, then yes please start a new support thread, and include screenshots.

Yes, the VM starts fine, I can't add titles from my PC if MM server isn't running in the Unraid VM, so if I can add a title, it's definitely running. I also run backups from it, so the issue isn't for the VM to start. Next time I add titles I'll document the issue and I'll start a new thread.

Sorry, I meant did you enable the auto start export in CCC.

Thanks, I think that must be it. I had enabled "start CCC minimized in system tray" but I had not enabled "auto start export on program start" as I thought it was automatic. Hopefully that will resolve it. If not, I'll start a thread.
