I have been experiencing some troubles with the TimeMachine backups from my Macs to my unRAID server since the release of unRAID 5.0. As it happens, 5.0.5 was released a couple of weeks ago which according to other forum users should fix the TimeMachine issues.
The upgrade was a smooth process as always. There was however an issue with the new version of VirtualBox, compiled for the kernel version of unRAID 5.0.5 – it didn’t work.
Nars on the unRAID forums has kindly built a new version of VirtualBox which works perfectly, and to replace the broken version, just complete these steps:
- Download the replacement package to /boot/config/plugins/virtualbox, and remove the old package which should be located in the same directory.
- Download the extension pack from the VirtualBox download page to the same directory as mentioned above. Rename the file to remove the build number. It should look something like this: “Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack–4.3.6.vbox-extpack”
- Run “/etc/rc.d/rc.virtualbox install” and you should have a fully functional VirtualBox once again.
I would expect the official build to catch up soon, but not being able to start your virtual machines for a while will surely cause serious headaches for many people.
