Updated on June 7th, 2016 Having a bit more experience with Docker and running Unifi as a container I thought it was time to update this page a bit. Containers bring a slightly different approach to operations. So now that we covered Migrating a UniFi Controller to a Docker container lets go over upgrading the controller container. Manual Updates This is pretty simple if we’re using a volume container to persist the volumes/data.
Updated on June 7th, 2016 Having a bit more experience with Docker and running Unifi as a container I thought it was time to update this page a bit. I have been a fan of the Ubiquiti Unifi APs and have been running one at home now since mid-2011. The Unifi APs do have a controller service that should be run on a computer on the network that is used for AP configuration, captive portal, event logging, and metrics collection.
After several years of neglecting my website I thought it was time for a reboot. While I don’t think I’m fully settled into the new site. I’m happy enough with it to go live with a new look and new platform. I have a few posts planned and hope to be more regular about writing posts. But life always has a way of interfering with plans like that so we’ll see.
At work we recently purchased a new file server that has a brand new Areca 1880 series RAID controller. Which unfortunately is not supported by the arcmsr kernel module that ships with Ubuntu Server 10.04.1. So I looked around on the web for someone who’s blazed this trail before me and only found the occasional forum post that offered a few hints for a particular problem that someone ran into in this process.
A few months ago I decided to do what a lot of geeks do. No…not go to Comic-Con. I decided to wire up my house with ethernet. The main goal here was really to get GigE between my office on the 2nd floor and the basement where my file server is located. I figured as long as I’m pulling cables I might as well take the plunge and wire up the whole house and to do it right.
