  1. Update: found a fix for it by someone on reddit, as far as i can tell its fixed, just wish i understand what happened and how it was fixed.. The simple fix was Tools - New Permissions, select the user shares and run the script on them.. this fixed so i can access the shares via my PCs now.. the only thing that still not working that previously worked is \\tower... outside of this i can explore to my shares via explorer and see all my shares and network map them to the pc again.
  2. Justed added info... someone on reddit asked if i could ping it... here are the results..
  3. ty, I just viewed my host file, but the ip address in it is correct, so i didnt change it. I did do the ipconfig dnsflush, but still errors out on \\tower I can access my gui via
  4. Most likely reason would be cached name resolution somewhere. Easiest solution would probably be to manually set the entry in your windows hosts files on the various client machines linking tower with the static IP you assigned to the server. Could you possibly go into slight more details on this, still learning as i go.
  5. Update: I have gotten a little progress. I cant access my tower shares or gui via \\TOWER like i could previously, but i learned i could access the shares seperately via ip address in my case\media. It prompted me for a user/password. The root user with my normal password didnt work, so i create a new user on the server and was able to enter that share user/password and get into the share finally, but now i need to figure out why its not able to found via \\tower anymore like it was prior to switching the ethernet ports.
  6. Hey All, I am looking for some help to solve an issue i seemed to have created, fixing another issue i was dealing with. My unRaid server i recently built, the motherboard has a 1gig and 10gig ethernet port. Since setting it all up i completely missed the fact that this whole time it was plugged into the 1gig port, so someone helped me switch everything over by moving my eth0 from the 1gig port to the 10gig port, switch the ethernet cable to that port after shutting it down. The way i fixed the port switching was via the setting - network, I switched the interface rules of ETH0 to the 10gig port, then ETH1 to the 1gig port, shut it down, switched cable between ports and started the server back on. So now that i got that all switched and all my dockers and everything are working perfectly accessing the network and internet via the 10gig port mapped to eth0, i no longer can access any of my shares. I cant even access my system with ... \\tower I can access the unRaid server just fine from the IP address to the GUI, but now i need to fix my shares. I tried to access them from my Windows 10 desktop, Windows 10 laptop, and older Windows 7 laptop i have laying around and the minute attempt to access it i get an error within Windows. I googled it, tried the common fix I see of enabling the guest login, but that didn't fix my issue and I don't think that is it, since its multiple systems unable to access the shares.
  7. I recently built a new Unraid server without ever having knowledge of Unraid previously. I designed it so it could be used for multiple purposes. I wanted it to become my new NAS storage, Gaming PC, Plex Server, and Video Editing rig all in one. So this was the parts i put together... AMD 3950x 2 x GTX1080ti 32GB Ram 1TB M.2 NVME SSD 500Gb M.2 NVME SSD The plan was to use the 2nd GTX1080ti i have for hardware acceleration in Plex and other dockers. I had the 2nd GPU from my crypto mining days already. Well since installing Unraid, i have come to realize all the bugs associated with trying to run VMs on AMD x470/x570 mbs. Currently my onboard audio isn't functioning, all of my USB 3.0 ports don't function, and NVME seems to not function correctly in Unraid VMs. My computer case im using is Corsair 1000D, which is designed for dual system watercooling with a 2nd motherboard area for miniITX MBs. I am thinking of ditching using Unraid on my 3950x and purchase an intel 7/8/9/10 gen budget celeron/i3/i5 CPU + miniITX mb and install it as a 2nd system, then run unraid on this 2nd system as my dedicated NAS + Plex server using quicksync iGPU and switch my new 3950x build back over the baremetal. I tested baremetal and everything works.. Audio, USB3.0, and NVME gives full drive speeds and keep my handbrake usage on the baremetal rig along with video editing. Example build: Intel i3 9100 w/UHD630 $75 Asus Prime H310I-PLUS R2.0 $89 G.Skill Aegis 32 GB 2x8gb 3200Mhz $59 EVGA SFX 450psu $39 Then sell my 2nd GTX1080ti to offset the 2nd build.
  8. Im not gonna lie... the performance of this would be terrible. The 3900x and 3950x both have a very limited amount of PCIe lanes... so after the 2nd GPU your performance will suffer horribly even if the motherboard has 3 full x16 slots. Most of the AM4 motherboards when you plug 3 GPUs into them, they will drop the first GPU to 8x, 2nd GPU to 4x, and last one to 2x or 4x only.
  9. I have been curious of this myself, SSDs are slowly dropping in price and we are starting to see enterprise used drives pop up on the used market. I am fairly new to Unraid, i started out my testing of Unraid with 2 x M.2 NVME drives (Parity and Disk 1) to test things out on the trial while i shopped for sales on the shuckable WD drives and after i replaced the parity and disk 1. I noticed there was practically no difference in transfer speeds between using the M.2 as parity and disk vs mechanical HHDs. I downloaded the trim plugin and asked questions about it on reddit, but noone could answer why i was seeing similar speeds. It was only after adding one of the M.2s as a cache drive that i saw nearly 3x the transfer speeds. So it seemed like the parity ran as a set speed non-dependent of which type of drive slotted in place.
  10. Hello All, I am currently still on the trial for unraid, but my experience with the use of VMs has really dissapointed me thus far. I built my new computer with the intentions of using Unraid as the OS to combine my NAS, Plex and Gaming PC all in a single machine, but i feel like ive made a huge mistake thus far. System Specs: Corsair 1000D AMD 3950x MSI x470 Gaming Pro Carbon 64GB Ram CL15@3600 500GB Samsung 970 Pro NVME M.2 1TB HP EX920 NVME M.2 2 x 10TB WD Shucked HHDs 2 x EVGA GTX1080ti 3 open slots for future storage HHDs Issue 1: My original build had the HP EX920 NVME only, but i ran into an issue with the NVME controller not being compatible with unraid, causing it to error out as unknown pci device, so purchased a well known working SSD the Samsung 970 Pro. Issue 2: Since i am running AMD, the onboard audio does not function... so was forced to use monitor for hdmi audio, but the quality isn't as good and i had to do the MSI mod to get it to work period, now when the VMs bootup i get very loud popping sounds and occasionally when a game loads for the first time in full screen it makes the same popping sound... still deciding what to do in the future for sound.... Issue 3: All my Windows 10 VMs for some reason limit my download speed to like 2-5mb, but my upload speed will show the full 150+ speed. Testing internet speed via speed test plugin i get like 100/100 to 130/150 connection, but ALL my Windows VMs are limited and it makes browsing the internet very slow and streamed videos buffer a lot. Issue 4: None of my USB 3.0 ports function, i can plug things into them to charge like a cell phone, but outside of that its like they don't exist, no hardware plugged into them is recognized, i was told this is a common bug with AMD also... Issue 5: I seem to take like a 10-15% loss in FPS playing the same games i played on this same system on baremetal for some reason... Issue 6: Currently i have 30 out of 32 threads issued to Windows 10 VM, saving the first core/thread pair for Unraid, I can be playing a game, CPU usage in unraid will show like 17% total, but lets say i drop a video into my handbrake watch folder to auto-convert, i can see only an increase of total CPU usage of 30% and i start experiencing random stuttering, i will have plenty of ram available. I also dont get as bad as stuttering, but if someone starts playing a plex video, i will see sometimes 30% fps drop while the video is transcoding. Issue 7: I cant get some usb connected devices to function even in USB 2.0 slots. I am a huge user of Samsung Dex on my phone plugged into my PC, because it makes checking emails and specific apps convenient, but i cant get it to even recognize to trigger Samsung Dex. In unraid the device is listed to check off for passing through, but it doesn't seem to see it inside the Windows VM. Issue 8: IDK if unraid just doesnt use NVME natively when the drive is used as a cache drive, but i noticed running VMs on the same drive were much faster according to crystal disk mark when i passed throught the NVME drive and not use a vdisk for the VM, if i add the same drive as cache, then install the VM using the cache drive only for the image location, its like the NVME speeds are non-existant and its running at normal SSD rates. On the reddit ive been told to try using Linux, so i have and im seeing my own type of issues. In Linux i cant even use HDMI audio at all, as soon as i plug the speaker system into the monitor, i will start getting graphical artifacts inside linux, but if i unplug it.. it goes away. I tried on BOTH GPUs and i get the same issue... also some of the software i use day to day i have not been able to get working in Linux, there is not linux version and Wine has been a hassle trying to get it to work with everything thus far.
