End Device Profiles location using Plex Docker on Unraid

server-unraid

#1

Hi All

I am on Unraid 6.3.5 and running the latest official Plex docker. Unraid has a SSD cache drive installed and
- the docker containers are installed on that cache drive
- transcode is pointed there ie /mnt/cache/.Apps/PlexMediaServer/transcode/
- app data config path is pointed there as well ie /mnt/cache/.Apps/PlexMediaServer

I recently had the need to play with the device profiles (iOS.xml, cOS.xml, etc) and went looking for them in /mnt/cache/.Apps/PlexMediaServer/............. but couldn't find them there.

Where I did find them was under /var/lib/docker/btrfs/subvolumes in three sub directories (in this example I searched for iOS.xml from the parent directory previously mentioned):
./38f934df8850c1545369780cf72384a4f9b458b1df7d636e1fe4460775c862d3/usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Resources/Profiles/iOS.xml
./bc6e6fd510915dad4b399a840a307ab065d1ffb5094c747451ec519af75b7224-init/usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Resources/Profiles/iOS.xml
./bc6e6fd510915dad4b399a840a307ab065d1ffb5094c747451ec519af75b7224/usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Resources/Profiles/iOS.xml

  1. Is this normal?
  2. Why does it exist in three locations?
  3. Why not in the app data area?
  4. What is the difference between the three and which do I edit?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm looking for the same thing
Why can't I edit the xml files, like I was able to years ago on windows?
specially when the default profiles are incorrect, and than you guys don't even allow 'power users' to fix your mistakes??

chromecast profile is broken now for YEARS, still nothing is done about it, and we can't even fix the issue
you just have to edit few strings, and it would make a large portion of your users much happier, but i guess it is to much to ask
we need more DVR music and news features... these are the things we are using plex sure, and not media playback..........
maybe first get the CORE FEATURES, than go about the side projects...
