[Solved] Issues with Root Folder

Post by plinkum »

Hi,

I'm new to Linux in general, but was pleased to find Yams, and initially, I got it working great. I had to shut down the server one night and when I brought it back up, all looked normal at first, but the next day it stopped downloading files through qBittorrent and started behaving very temperamental. I spent some time investigating and realised that the root directories in Radarr and Sonarr were full. I couldn't understand why, as I only had downloaded about 1TB of files and I have it connected to a USB DAS with a logical volume of 32TB. What I then realised was that for some reason both Radarr and Sonarr had begun saving their files into a /movies/ and /tv/ folder on my OS partition which is only 100GB.

I did not make these changes, and after a full reinstall of Ubuntu server 22.04 (multiple times) the same thing happens. I get Yams set up properly with the Root folder properly saving to the USB DAS, but as soon as the server is shut down or I reboot, when it comes back up again, the root folders have changed to saving into the 100GB OS drive.

I thought there may have been an issue with the USB DAS not starting up quickly enough and docker then starting all the containers before the storage was ready. So I did a bit of searching and found a way to delay docker starting by adding:

Code: Select all

[Unit]
RequiresMountsFor=/mnt/my-usb-das

to the docker.service file. Unfortunately, this has not helped and when I go into Radarr or Sonarr, both still have the Root folder set as /movies/ or /tv/, but they only have 77.9GB of free space.

If I remove the root folder and try and add /movies/ again, it adds, but it still only has 77.9GB of free space, which means it isn't adding the proper root folder.

As I mentioned earlier, I'm a complete novice at Ubuntu and Docker, etc. so this is about the extent of my ability to troubleshoot. I would appreciate it if anyone could offer some suggestions on things to try or to look for that may help me get this up and running again.

Thanks.

Hey @plinkum!

You have nailed the debugging! As a matter of fact, I also face this issue on my YAMS install. I was looking trough solutions, but found that the easiest one is just to restart YAMS 30 seconds after the computer starts :mrgreen:

Add this to your cronjob:

Code: Select all

@reboot sleep 30 && /usr/bin/docker restart $(/usr/bin/docker ps -q)

That should fix your issue.

Thanks for your solution! It helped in part - I hadn't correctly set up my /etc/fstab folder so the mount wasn't mounting on reboot, hence it defaulted to saving to the OS drive. I have added your cronjob and tested and all appears to be working.

Oh, I thought you had your fstab figured out. Ok, that makes a lot of sense.

I'm glad you were able to figure it out! I'm marking the issue as solved.
