  1. This shows the same output as System Devices in UnRAID: 00:1c.4 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Cannon Lake PCH PCI Express Root Port #5 (rev f0) So no new infos.
  2. Lately I get the following error in the System Log from time to time (every other day): Jan 6 12:50:25 <name> kernel: pcieport 0000:00:1c.4: AER: Corrected error received: 0000:00:1c.4 Jan 6 12:50:25 <name> kernel: pcieport 0000:00:1c.4: PCIe Bus Error: severity=Corrected, type=Data Link Layer, (Transmitter ID) Jan 6 12:50:25 <name> kernel: pcieport 0000:00:1c.4: device [8086:a33c] error status/mask=00001000/00002000 Jan 6 12:50:25 <name> kernel: pcieport 0000:00:1c.4: [12] Timeout (The first three lines are red = ERROR, the last line is black = TEXT)
  3. does "better performance" means - higher read/write speed? - less CPU usage on host (UnRAID) system? - less CPU usage on VM? - less RAM on host/VM? - ...
  4. So I read some articles and tutorials in order to create a Windows gaming VM with UnRAID. CPU and GPU passthrough are working great and also a UnRAID share is passed to the VM. But I have a final questions that I haven't been able to find the answer to yet: What is "better" for such a gaming VM? `raw` or `qcow2` as vdisc? From what I read, raw should be faster (more performance) then qcow2. In older benchmarks this is truly visible, but in newer qcow2 versions this seems to have only an impact of up to 5% or even less. And are 5% that bad in order not to have such
  5. I am using unRAID since the start of the year and I am happy with it since that day (Intel build with two NVIDIA cards). Now is the time that my partner needs a new PC.She needs to run Windows and Mac iOS so I thought unRAID could be an option. So we checked the requirements and came up with this: my questions: Is it possible to run iOS as VM on such a machine? (Mac iOS on ryzen?) There are tutorials for Mac iOS and unRAID out there, but they all use Intel CPUs. Is there a reason for this? Or only a coincidence? Is it better to
  6. My setup: Netgear GSM7328Sv2 Layer-3 Switch with two SFP+ 10Gbit modules installed that convert to RJ45 with Cat6 (no a or e) On each of the Cat6 ends there is a computer: One is the UnRAID server (with a 10Gbit ASUS XG-C100C PCI card, MTU of 9000, a M2 cache drive and several seagate HDDs, the main HDD samba share does not use the cache and the mover in order to directly write to the array). The other is a Windows 10 computer (one HDD and one M2 ssd inside, with a 10Gbit ASUS XG-C100C PCI card). The old problem: Copying from the Windows Computer to the UnR
  7. How to correctly backup an UnRAID server? (Full backup of everything) I read about different techniques (rsync, rclone, Duplicacy, ...) and decidet to use `Duplicacy` for my own shares. But what about the VMs, the docker config files and the UnRAID configuration itself? In the end I need a backup routine that generates backups for the emergency of a full server lose. So it must be possible with little or huge effort to grab a backup and recover the full server with all docker configurations, UnRAID settings made, own personal files, ... So currently Dupli
  8. Ok, I have new test results. Like @bastlsuggested, I tried to max out the possible supported MTU. For that I set up a MTU of 9216 in my Netgear switch (maximum possible) and started pinging the switch with the windows machine: ping <SwitchIP> -f -l <MTU> the UnRAID server: ping -M do -s <MTU> <SwitchIP> The MTU given here is without header, so the actual MTU has 28 Bytes more. The results: OnBoard 1G network card in UnRAID: maximum possible MTU in ping command was 1472, so 1472+28=1500 ASUS 10G network card in UnRA
  9. Thanks so much @bastl. Currently, I have so many things to test on my stack that it will cost some time until I have new results and information. But one thing seems to be quite sure: It must be the 10G card. The question now is, whether it can be fixed or has to be swapped out. Jumbo frames are the next thing I will try and after that mounting additional fans only to the card for better cooling. Next post will be, hopefully, results and clarity.
  10. Thanks @bastl for all your time. So currently everything points to the 10G network card. Test setup: The second Windows 10 computer (test bench) could back up with Macrium. 100% and around 400GB saved. OnBoard intel network card from Windows to OnBoard network card in UnRAID. -> pass Then a second backup with the second Windows 10 computer (test bench) with Macrium. 1% and then stuck like descriped in my first post. OnBoard intel network card from Windows to 10G ASUS network card in UnRAID. -> no pass Next I will test OnBoard intel from main Windows 1
  11. Is there a way to get the driver information from the installed 10G network card? Currently I am testing with another Windows 10 PC and until now Macrium runs just fine (currently 43% with finished 105GB). My changes for this test: The secondary Windows Computer has an Intel LAN OnBoard network card. The UnRAID server now uses only one OnBoard network plug and not the 10G PCI card from ASUS. The main Windows Computer normally has the exact same 10G PCI network card. UnRAID and main Windows use the `ASUS XG-C100C, RJ-45, PCIe 3.0 x4 (90IG0440-MO0R00)`
  12. @johnnie.blackthanks a lot, that link and the explanation helped a lot. So my sde has 64239458, so 3D43762 in hex, so 0 errors ... lucky me 😅
  13. Thanks so much @bastlfor your time. I am using 4x `Seagate Exos E 7E8 8TB, 512e, SATA 6Gb/s (ST8000NM0055)` brand new. I tested the SMART information before the installation and there were no errors and also no used time (so from what I could extract, the discs were never used before). So how does it come to this kind of errors? Should I be worried? Can this be fixed? I build the new server by myself with these parts: hardware list After that I configured everything and copied all old files with `rsync -tr --info=progress2 <source> <destination>` from the
  14. Unfortunately no IDS on the network. I will search for one maybe as a docker image to install on the server as well. Also not tested with other computers yet. Currently I am installing a Win10 machine in order to test Macrium backups with this in a few minutes. Avast is installed on the main system as virus scanner. But no problems when backing up to the old Synology, so I never tried turing it off. But now I did and it did not changed the result of a stuck backup. I will try it with the other windows machine and then come back with the results. Until then one
