  1. is there a step by step to get plex working through roku to get movies from my unraid v6? preferably a walkthrough for dummies...i found something for version 5 but im not sure its the same for 6. thanks
  2. i know this is old but thought id post this incase helps someone in future...i "reset" my windows 10 and couldnt access server via windows explorer checked everything and eventually realized my network had been set as public. so i changed to private and all good..
  3. Yeah thanks for the info. It does appear however that my first 7200rpm drive was running hotter than my current one. So i feel better about it now lol
  4. so im about hour thirty into parity and new drive is at 40. Still my warmest drive but its only 1 degree warmer than my second highest temp drive. The ambient temperature has dropped from when i started posting this so thats why its down to 40 but i dont think the range is as great. my coolest drive is 34. the warmest ones are the parity drive 1,2,3 basically so ill look into that area to try and provide something to keep it a little cooler. since this is the second drive im more comfortable with the temps and all that. I mostly wanted to be on the safe side. so ill continue to monitor it. The chassis fans appear to be how they should be to keep the case cool . Thanks again everyone
  5. well i replaced the drive with the same exact drive i did before and the red dot has gone away. Im not going crazy i swear ive done this before and like i said its the same drive. I keep an unplugged extra drive mounted in the chassis. So i will RMA the WD Red drive and take it from there. Thanks everyone!
  6. There is a free 'trial' license for v6 (limited to 3 attached devices). Downside is it would need renewing every 30 days. thats kind of a pain but maybe i can at least do it as a test and see if it changes anything with the disk...still waiting to rebuild the disk. im running a preclear on another disk so ill post again after i rebuild
  7. when i start the array everything appears to work normally except i cant do a parity check of course...im still going to rebuild the drive one more time just in case....other than that im not sure...i was going to upgrade to v6 but theres no more free license key anymore
  8. meant to post unmenu screenshot too...sorry they were the same...fixed now
  9. i was just saying after swapping all the hardware it still a problem. Ill try rebuilding it again but i have gone as far as to swapping the hdd with another and it showed disk 2 with the red ball still so at that point i had assumed it was the mobo because i had tried everything else
  10. I would have thought the side fans should be extracting. The only fans blowing air in should be those on the front panel that are blowing air over the drives. they're definitely blowing in but i can flip them if you think that's best
  11. alright so ive been busy but im starting to look at this server again. I have ruled out hdd. ruled out sata cable ruled out psu and even went as far as to change mobo and cpu. disk 2 is still a problem. i ran a smart report for the drive i shall post it along with syslog. thanks for info. syslog-2015-10-30.txt smart.txt
  12. hey @buxton i am not smart enough to help you but in trouble shooting i know sometimes we become focused on one thing as the possible issue and sometimes find out it was something completely different. i want to open up that possibility for you because well you never know... first of all i was told not too long ago on this forum by someone much smarter than me that hdds have hundreds or thousands (cant remember which) of available sectors so if one here and there get relocated you should be all good..just keep in mind the smart status and check that out... with that being said i was having problems not to long ago with not being able to access my server. again this may not be able to help you one but i just wanted to share because with me it was hours and hours of research of trying to figure this out and i randomly found an answer http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=33646.msg318586#msg318586 maybe will help maybe not. thats all i can post for you i cant fix your issue since i know NOTHING
  13. I want to cover all points here...so first of all I have issued an RMA and i will post results of new drive and what not but let me go over all the great info you guys have given... i Was unaware the HGST run warmer than others of same RPM but yes aware 7200 will run hotter than 5400... i want to address the airflow of the case and i will check temps from about 1.5hrs into parity next run... good to know on the operating temps of those drives thanks. you are correct on the hdd doing a lot of work at once but from the get go when i started the preclears the temps were about 50-56C i believe. next time i will give it more time to rest in between the preclear and the parity... this particular case came many slots for hdd so i hope they set the fans up correctly for it... there is also three fans blowing inwards on the side panel. (sorry i cant draw with a mouse ) Thanks for all the info. Let me know what you think of the case fans and the directions. Again i will post results of replacement hdd just incase. I very well may be parinoid i just want to take care of it while within return warranty time frame. Thanks. ill post back probably next week since 3 runs on preclear of 4tb takes some time. thanks again
  14. yeah the fans should all be going in the right direction. they came with the chassis...so it has three fans on the front blowing towards the hdd..has 3 fans on the side panel i think they are blowing in. then it has two fans on top and one or two fans in the back. and of course cpu and psu. well i do live in southern az which gets hot all the time but i dont know why my hdds would be running so much hotter. as in the screen shot the parity and disk 1 and 2 are the hottest and they are right next to each other. so perhaps i should do what you said and move that drive to the end and see what happens... i assume the WD RED run a little hotter than the WD Green but i dont know for sure. im not so concerned about the other drives just the new one i got because i dont know for sure if it should be running that much hotter...ill call new egg today and see what we can do.
  15. good suggestion but i dont know if that would work...let think this out while i type haha...my drives are in the chassis sideways because of hdd bay i can fit 4 in where 2 or 3 optical drives would mount...the case has about 9 or so fans and there is a fan in front of each hdd bay...but ill take that into consideration for sure...thanks for the suggestion!
