Re: ZM on CentOS 7 ESXi VM getting disk full

Not saying you don't have a point. I have taken all measures to prevent Zoneminder to cause problems and it seems to be working correctly, as designed. I've noticed that VMWare is filling the datastore with disks and was using 98% of the dataset. That could be the reason that the VM stopped without ...

Re: ZM on CentOS 7 ESXi VM getting disk full

Before I moved ZM to a VM, I was running it on a CentOS 7 server with 2x2TiB HDDs with the same partition scheme, where root had 90% on the total space (~3.6TiB) for several months without encountering this issue. I'll follow your suggestion to test and create a small VHD for the OS/ZM and a second ...

ZM on CentOS 7 ESXi VM getting disk full

I've been running into this issue from time to time. The VM will stop without space and I have to restore a snapshot to get it going. My ZM VM has a 1TiB VHD and the PurgeWhenFull filter is running and set to 89% of the disk space. I even set a cron job to alert me if the disk space utilization went...

Re: ZM 1.3 on CentOS 7

Yes, that's right. During the installation and upgrade process you were prompted, no less than three times, to follow the README instructions during any installation or upgrade. I can point them out to you if you want. I've done everything I know to alert you to follow the README, other than jump o...

Re: ZM 1.3 on CentOS 7

Try following the README instructions. ZoneMinder is guaranteed not to work if you don't. Another classic case of RTFM? I'm running as stated above after db migration, but I only did an yum update and the version was updated, so how should I know I had to run it to migrate the db? I maybe expecting...

Re: ZM 1.3 on CentOS 7

Running after db migration.

Note: zmupdate.pl displays: Upgrading to version 1.29.1 from 1.29 (Not exact words). Is it referring to the db version or ZM version? It may be misleading.

Re: ZM 1.3 on CentOS 7

Oh, and if you are willing to be a guinea pig.... If you enable the testing repo on your system under /etc/yum.repos.d and do a yum update, you will get a newer ffmpeg, newer vlc, and a new zoneminder package, which has been built against these newer packages. It should just magically upgrade, but ...

Re: How to set up IP cams remotely?

Very complex network and maybe creating lots of double nat'ing in the process. I run all my home n/w with only one router (a pfsense) and several 1gb switches. For wireless I'd recommend using your routers as APs, if you really need for places that the "main" Ap can't provide a good connection, alth...

Foscam: Be aware

Bought two Foscam from Amazon in April. As I was planning to use it with WiFi and it has not performed well, even with a new AP installed on my roof 50ft from it, I returned one. Yesterday the 2nd one died, after three months of use, so here's the catch. Checked Amazon and return period has passed, ...

Re: Cron / Calendar Integration

I'd say I'm 1 dollar short and 3 years late for this party ... I just started with ZM and started learning a little bit about it helping some smart folks that developed a port for FreeBSD https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6clHa5IX562UW5ja3NTbnhvcjQ .

Re: Alarms: Work with some, not all cameras

Thanks knnniggett. I'll wait for night to check how the setting will react with motion light, etc. I did found the frames and saw the alarms, so could compare what was been considered to trigger the alarms.

Upload it to Dropbox/Google Drive and then a post a link to it here?

Re: ZM on FreeBSD

I've documented the steps to install ZM on FreeBSD and FreeNAS with Abi but can't attach a pdf to this forum (invalid file extension). I've posted on the FreeNAS forum but would like to have it available here as well. Any ideas how can I make this happen?
