  1. Are you or anybody else aware of any services out there, that would allow a setup, which would work for unRaid?
  2. I was hoping to have all the benefits that unRaid offers, running Dockers etc but at a remote location. My local Internet is not the best, however good enough (just about) for streaming. Furthermore, once I retire I plan on selling up and traveling and so I won't have anywhere to store a permanent NAS.
  3. Hello all, Due to whatever reason(s) one might have for not running a NAS, what alternatives are available, ie running unRaid on a VPS with storage streamed from G-Suite unlimited via rclone?
  4. Hello all, I am now moving house and so my previous thread of building an UnRaid NAS will have to be put on hold. I do however not want to abandon plans of migrating to UnRaid all together at this time and so I am going to sell my Synology DS916+ (without the 2x 12tb HDD's) and build a stepping stone server in the meantime. I've had the DS916+ for a couple of years now and it has worked well for me as an intro NAS, however I've outgrown it now and I'm itching to move over to UnRaid to be able to tinker further and build on my knowledgebase. For info, the DS916+ has the following specs; *INTEL Pentium N3710 1.6GHz (4 cpu cores) *8gb RAM *4x available HDD bays I use my NAS mainly as a media server, supplying 2-4 HD streams and I run multiple dockers (Sonarr, Radarr, SabnzbdVPN, NextCloud, Bitwarden). I want at least the same performance from my new build, but more the better, along with the ability to run two Windows VM's with decent gaming horsepower, nothing crazy, but a smooth(ish) experience for games such as C&C & Star Citizen (at a push?) Most importantly, I would like the ability to add several more HDD's in the future, however the case does not need to be a looker, it will be out of sight. I would very much appreciate suggestions for this build, keeping cost to a minimum, whilst achieving the above. Lastly, I'm in the UK, if that makes any difference. Many thanks. ***Edit*** A quick look on cpubenchmark.net shows the i5-10400 as high up on the "best value" list;
  5. Hello, I sent this email to Ninja; .....and just received this reply back;
  6. Many thanks for replying. I've just emailed Newsgroup.ninja regarding the issue, hopefully I'll have something to report shortly.
  7. Hi, Thanks for the update......I thought it might have been just my setup. I have three usenet providers so it hasn't had a massive impact on me up to now, but I am thinking about dropping Newsgroup.ninja. Regards.
  8. Hi, Unfortunately I've been getting the following error a couple of times a day for the past few weeks; Server News.newsgroup.Ninja uses an untrusted certificate [Certificate hostname mismatch: the server hostname is not listed in the certificate. This is a server issue.] - Wiki: https://sabnzbd.org/certificate-errors I thought it would just go away on its own and I thought it had after you addressed the certificate issue above, however its just happened again. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  9. Hello, Only recently joined as I'm in the process of migrating from Synology to unRaid. I wanted to firstly say many thanks for all of your work on this fantastic programme, it has been running perfectly for several weeks on my Synology once I got it set up after reading this forum. Today however I have updated my DSM to the latest pushed OS version (6.2.3-25426) and after a restart SabnzbdVPN is throwing up the following error; I've tried; *Replacing the configuration file from NordVPN, *Deleting all files and the docker image followed by a complete fresh reinstall, *Logged into NordVPN directly to ensure that there are no issues with my account, *Checked that NordVPN has no issues, *Tried another configuration file for another NordVPN server location, *Double checked all parameters / variables within the docker image (these have not been touched since initial setup). *Read the linked sabnzbdvpn documentation. Unfortunately however I am still receiving the same error message and nothing seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. ***Update*** After endless Googling I find a page with the following details, which worked (I have know idea what I've just done following the below, but I'm hoping it hasn't made me system vulnerable); Check if you have the tun module installed: ❯ lsmod | grep tun If the result comes out empty, try installing it: ❯ insmod /lib/modules/tun.ko Now let’s make sure the tun.ko module works as expected: ❯ mkdir /dev/net ❯ mknod /dev/net/tun c 10 200 ❯ chmod 600 /dev/net/tun ❯ cat /dev/net/tun If the result of the cat command was "File descriptor in bad state", it means the module has been correctly installed. The module installation needs to be made persistent otherwise on every Synology restart, you’ll have to repeat the insmod command. Create the following file to run on every system boot: ❯ cat <<EOF > /usr/local/etc/rc.d/tun.sh #!/bin/sh -e insmod /lib/modules/tun.ko EOF Make the script executable: ❯ chmod a+x /usr/local/etc/rc.d/tun.sh Reboot your Synology NAS or execute the script manually once. Done!
  10. Hello, That's good to know. After seeing the performance of the 3950x I'm seriously leaning towards the AMD route. Do Nvidia cards play well with them and if so which would you all recommend? For my setup I'll need three, one for my gaming VM, one for the family VM and then one for unRaid. If I do go with the 3950x, what do you think of the "X570 GODLIKE" motherboard (I really want 10gb networking); https://www.scan.co.uk/products/msi-meg-x570-godlike-amd-x570-am4-ddr4-pcie-40-triple-m2-2-way-sli-4-way-crossfire-killer-2
  11. All really good suggestions, thanks, I'll do just that. As for the X470D4U, that's half the price of the MAXIMUS so I'm very happy with that. To be honest regarding the choise of SSD, I didn't look around and chose the 660p as I saw it mentioned on a Linus video that it was good value for its speed. But I'll certainly look at the 970's. What would be a good recommendation for graphics? Is there anything that hits that sweet spot for performance whilst bringing that price down from the 2060? This will be for my gaming VM, however I'll need a second run of the mill card for a second Windows VM for Internet browsing etc. ***EDIT*** On a side note, I've just been on www.cpubenchmark.net and the 3950x is blowing the i9-10980XE out of the water! I think I'm certainly swaying to AMD for this build. I didn't realise how powerful that chip was!
  12. Hello, If the general consensus is that a 3950x is the best way to go then I'll certainly go that route. Thanks for the suggestion. Looking online it would appear to be roughly £100 more than the 10900K, however all the benchmarks certainly show where that extra money goes.....very impressive. A quick search through this forum and people certainly have their opinions on the age old Intel vs AMD debate. Overall will the 3950x give me any issues when aiming for what I've outlined above? And is the extra cost beneficial in the longterm, or able to reduce costs in other areas? I've recently switched my entire movie and TV library over to H265, which has reduced my overall usage of my 20TB to a little over half. I had originally planned to utilise Google Drive as temporary storage whilst I made the switch from Synology to unRaid, one drive at a time.
  13. Hello all, First post after recently joining. I've had a synology DS916+ with 2x 10tb drives for a few years now but I would like to move to a self build and unRaid. I currently use my NAS as a media server for a maximum of two streams at any one time. I use Emby as my media player/organiser and overall I am happy with it. The NAS is not the fastest and it sometimes struggles with even 1080p video. My intentions are to replace this NAS with a self build with unRaid, have the ability to transcode two 4K video streams at the same time (more would be nice), setup two Windows VM's on it (one being a gaming VM, albeit I don't play that many games, but I would like to have a smooth experience when I do), the second VM will be for usual www use etc. These two VM's will replace two computers in seperate parts of the house via KVM. The media side of the NAS will need to transcode and relay the signals to various TV's around the house. I will be keeping my two 10tb WD HHD's and will look to expand in the future as and when (up to the region of ten drives), and so having the initial space in the case is critical. My build that I have drawn up is currently looking like the following, however I would really appreciate the communities input as to what should be changed/altered to bring down price whilst still "pointing" in the direction of my requirements; *ThermalTake The Tower 900 Super Tower Computer Chassis (£234.98) *Intel Core i9 10900K (£529.99) *ASUS MAXIMUS XII FORMULA, Intel Z490 (£499.99) *128GB (4x32GB) Corsair DDR4 Vengeance RGB PRO Black, PC4-28800 (3600) (£681.49) *2TB Intel SSD 660p Series (£227.99) *1200W Corsair HX1200i, Full Modular, ATX PSU (£289.99) *ASUS GeForce RTX 2060 (£323.99) Total - £2788.43 I'm a longtime Intel and Nvidia lover and so it will be difficult for me to move from them, however I will if need be. Thank you all in advance.
