  1. Yes, an absolute bargain. Refurbished enterprise gear can be great value when it's genuine.
  2. The black brick thing is a RAM battery backup (well actually it's some capacitors) for when the adapter is used as a hardware RAID card. It just plugs in and is not needed with how the adapter is used in unRAID. There aren't a great deal of 16 port adapters out there and, yes, the LSI ones are very expensive.
  3. Sure you can. It just depends on things like: How many x8 (or x16) PCIE slots do you have How many PCIE lanes have you got available and how do you intend use them I have one of these 16 port adapters (not LSI) and it works with zero issues: https://www.ebay.com/itm/ASR-71605-Adaptec-2274400-R-16-Port-SAS-SATA-6Gbps-1GB-PCI-E-RAID-Controller/182739023209?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 And, one of these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-in-Sealed-LSI-SAS-9207-8i-6Gb-s-PCI-E-3-0-Adapter-LSI00301-US-SameDayShip/122171565228?ssPageName=ST
  4. The new dashboard looks the duck nuts. Bravo.
  5. Great, I'd imagine that with the constant addition of amazing features, keeping the documentation up to date would be quite an effort.
  6. I understand the links to the wiki are there as you mention. However, for the uninitiated I wouldn't expect to have to dig through often out of date or incomplete documentation just to find out the core features of a product. From my perspective, documentation tells me how to use a product, the product website should sell me the features first. While the old site was less pretty it was quite comprehensive in explaining in relatively broad detail exactly what the product did.
  7. Is it just me or has the UNRAID website been dumbed down to the point where virtually no detailed information is given about the product? Sure the website looks great but if I was wanting to get some details of how it works I'd be leaving disappointed.
  8. I've actually got my wires crossed a bit here: my fault is not the one you linked. The issue that I have is that nginx slowly consumes all available memory over a week or so.
  9. I've got the same problem too. It seems to happen when certain Dockers are running but I'm still trying to work out which ones. I have virtually no idea how to do anything in linux so only the obvious stands out to me. It's only been happening since 6.5.0 from what I can see. I have two seperate servers running 6.5.0 and only one has the memory leakage problem. As of now I have not tried any of the 6.5.1 RC series.
  10. It's a bug. Should be fixed in the next release apparently.
  11. I'm trying to add a new(ish) disk to the array but after I've assigned it to an empty slot (disk 2 slot) and started the array it just loops and goes straight back to "click start to bring array online and pre-clear disk, etc" without the array actually starting. The disk hasn't been used on unRAID before and is freshly cleared in OS X. I recall an issue like this quite some time ago (perhaps V5 era). Diagnostics attached. Cheers tower-diagnostics-20160716-1035.zip
  12. I have a disk that has been ejected from the array and is now showing as an unassigned, unformatted disk. After starting the array in maintenance mode I've run an Fsck check with the following outcome: Will read-only check consistency of the filesystem on /dev/sdq1 Will put log info to 'stdout' Do you want to run this program?[N/Yes] (note need to type Yes if you do):Yes ########### reiserfsck --check started at Mon May 23 12:15:51 2016 ########### Replaying journal: Done. Reiserfs journal '/dev/sdq1' in blocks [18..8211]: 0 transactions replayed Checking internal
  13. In my experience unRAID performance on OS X is one of the few weak links with the product. I don't know where the problem is but I frequently experience dropped shares (only a Mac reboot will reconnect) and long, long directory loading times. Neither of these things occur when using Windows machines. Using AFP changed nothing nor does the cache dir plugin improve things. In the seven years I've been using unRAID it's always been this way with no real noticeable changes. I just live with it but it can get frustrating at times.
