Oh docker let me tell you....

This last summer I had about 13 VMs running different services and web servers, it was working due to Proxmox. But as I promote Docker as soon as I can.. kinda I use Docker, but not that much to be honest. But that has changed in a big way during the autumn and the last two days, so from about 13 VMs running there are only 3 left now. So these are the ones running atm:

I thorn in my side...

I’ve been wanting to dockerize my Plex server eve though Plex Inc has aid that the server is not optimized for Docker. I have read countless blogs and opinions that is working just fine, so I had no worries doing it. The reason was the my Plex Media server VM have had issues for the last two three weeks so the stars was aligned. So… raised the hardware available on the docker-web-host, edited the docker-compose file did up -d.

Enough is enough

I have faithfully paid for every upgrade and platform I use Fantastical on, I have never hesitated to throw more money at this fantastic program. A week back the sync between iOS and my macOS started to misbehave, I reinstalled, didn’t help. Today Fantastical was updated, automatically. Happy to investigate what was new but that happiness soon turned sour. My first thought was, this evil red color needs to be gone… little did I know that I probably could remove it.

I fixed my dead USG!

Just by pure coincidence I stumbeled across a posting at Reddit talking about a dead USG, the details he had sounded exactly like mine and where were answers! First answer said that it was usually the hard-drive that died and that was fixable! He said it was a guide online so I went to a search and found a guide. Now when I try to find the same one I have no luck, oh well I found an even better one!

Thank you LSIO and what I have learnt

It is time to give back even more than I do but not beating the masters that I have learnt from. I have been hanging in the Linuxserver (LSIO) Discord channel (https://discord.gg/UmjpTy) for some time now, there I have been pestering the super nice people with the same questions over and over, yesterday one of them told me to write a blog post about what I have learnt, both for give back but also a place to go to when I need the same answer once again.

Storage-server rebuilt!

Finally I had a chance to rebuild my storage-server, it has been overdue for months and months. Time hasn’t been on my side. But suddenly hours were given to me and I took the chance. First up was to investigate why it was kind of misbehaving, an hour searching through logs gave me an idea… it seemed like my extra PCI-E SATA card didn’t felt so good. A couple of hours in the try of healing the machine I had to realize that the sata-card was gone.

Drop some words...

So long time since I said a beep here, I just wanna say that it is still being ideas tested and played with in my homelab, that it is what it is for, right? Over the weekend with 2 birthdays and as many parties time to play was limited, but reading about stuff was possible and man did I find something nice! So I will just post the links that will keep me busy for some time.

Installning Docker on Ubuntu 19.10

Ubuntu [server] 19.10 is out and installing Docker isn’t as straight forward as one would hope. First, off the guide at Docker, https://docs.docker.com/install/linux/docker-ce/ubuntu/#install-using-the-repository is kinda correct, I will show you the trick that will make Docker install just fine. The trick is to trick the installer to think that you’re on an older version of Ubuntu than you are… So when you come to the step where you install the repository use this line instead:

Halloween ghosts in my setup

In some part of the world this weekend is the Halloween weekend… not here I live but that is beside the point. Earlier in the week, I saw that my proxmox server had a bunch of updates needed to be applied, so I said ok, in the corner of my eye I saw that the updates contained an update to 6.09, up until now I had been running 6.07. Didn’t think of it much until later this week when I was about to go in and shut the server down, I wasn’t able to reach the gui, all the VMs where up and running.

The autumn plan coming along

The plan for the autumn is closing in. So what is the plan you ask, how nice of you to ask me that. Well it you have read up on my homely setup you know I got a storage server, it is a self built, huge tower that is my main storage for every other server in the lab. So it has to go down quite a lot of thought into the planning of the update of that one.
