  1. Damn. I am hesitating to buy another PCIe->NVMe Bifurcation card that fits my needs when I can't even get a single NVMe drive running. Are there any (stupid) mistakes that come to your mind what I could be missing here? Any wrong Bios-settings?
  2. So: For testing I am running the PCIe port in [1x16] default mode with one NVMe-Drive installed on the Expansion Card. The NVMe-Drive is detected in Bios: Seg:Bus:Dev:Func 00:01:00:00 Model Number CT500P5SSD8 Total Size 500.1 GB Vendor ID 1344 Device ID 5405 Namespace: 1 Size: 500.1 GB But I can't see it in unRAID. When I try to add Disks to my Cache Pool or create a new one, the drive is not there. What am I missing here?
  3. Ist aus Deinem Projekt etwas geworden? Ich habe das gleiche Board und habe bis vorhin gedacht, ich könne einfach eine PCIe x8 Adapterkarte auf 2x NVMe M.2 daran betreiben. Offenbar funktioniert das aber nicht, weil ich als Modus dann 4x4x4x4 bräuchte. Siehst du noch andere Möglichkeiten, an dem Board mehrere M.2 SSDs zu betreiben? Der M.2-Slot auf dem Board ist bei mir (wie bei dir) durch einen 5-Port-Sata-Adapter belegt.
  4. Okay. Thanks so far. I will check a few things and get back in touch later.
  5. The board has just one PCIe-Slot. Can you tell if the adapter card is getting recognized?
  6. Damn. But should'nt I be able to at least see/use one of the two drives right now? The notes of the PCIe-Card say "Without PCIe bifurcation only the first M.2 slot of the card can be used." I just want to rule out other possible errors before I send the new hardware back and start over from scratch...
  7. I am trying to set up a new cache pool with two NVMe drives (Crucial P5 500GB). I have this Mainboard and got this PCIe-Card . Long story short: It does not work, Unraid does not show me the new drives when I want to assign them to the new cache pool. I already changed the bios setting "CPU PCIE x16 Switch" ("Allows you to determine how the bandwidth of the PCIEX16 slot is divided. (Default: 1x16)") from [1x16] to [2x8] as well as [1x8 & 2x4], which does not make any difference. What am I doing wrong here? Please tell me if you need any more information. And I hope, i put this into the right category. If not, don't hesitate to tell me. Thanks.
  8. I have been experimenting with "--cpu-shares" and it does not what I am intending to do. I read everywhere that the default value is 1024, are you sure it's 512? Is this some kind of special setting in unRaid or just a typo?
  9. I have not yet started the moving project (moving Internet-exposed Nextcloud from Raspi to Server) I explained in my opening post. I wanted to do it in the next couple of days, but now I red some horror stories of users losing all their data because they exposed their Unraid-machines to the internet. Am I getting this right, that exposing a single docker container (nextcloud) with its own fixed IP-Adress by forwarding port 443 (thats what I was planning to do) is not the kind of thing everyone is warning users about (they are exposing the Unraid-UI)? Would you say that what I am planning to do is "okay"? Sorry for asking again, I just want to make sure I am not messing things up.
  10. I want to upgrade from 1Gbit/s Ethernet to 2,5Gbit/s and would not want to waste my only available PCIe slot on an internal network card. I just found this dongle: "DIGITUS USB Type-C™ Gigabit Ethernet Adapter 2.5G (Chipset: RTL8156)" but discovered here that there seem to be problems with the driver for that specific chipset. Are there any 2,5Gbit/s USB (Type A or C doesnt matter to me) dongles out there that are proven to work with unRaid that you could suggest to me?
  11. Hi, i recently joinded the unRAID community and built my first server. Works fine so far. Now here is my question (I hope I am posting this in the right sub-forum. If not, just let me know): Currently I am running Nextcloud on a Raspberry Pi (installed manually on Raspbian, not dockerized, all data on a SSD attached to the Pi) in my home network. Nextcloud is accessible from the Internet, since my Router is forwarding port 443 to the device. I am using a DDNS service and SSL (Lets Encrypt). The Pi also accesses a SMB-Share provided by my unRAID-Device (located in the same network) to put daily backups of the Userdata/Database there. Now from a practibility (less devices, easier backups) and performance point of view I would like to transfer this Nextcloud service to my new unRAID-Build an retire my Pi. I would run Nextcloud via Docker with a seperate internal network IP assigned to this container and forward port 443 in my router to that specific IP. Would you consider this "best practice"? What I don't know is, if this would be a wise decision regarding security. I know this question is rather vague, but how would you guys estimate the security of these two solutions in comparison? (By security concerns I mean the possibility of attackers gaining control of my private data/other services running on unRAID and/or other devices in my local network that are not hosted via Nextcloud) I guess I could also run Nextcloud in a Docker Container on another physical device (e.g. another Raspberry Pi), but I have no Idea if this would make any difference regarding security compared to running everything (private data and Nextcloud) on the same physical device. If you need any more information to discuss/answer this properly, just let me know. Thanks!
  12. @testdasithanks for the reply. I would rather pick the Pentium Gold G5400 (has iGPU) instead of the i3-9100. Do you think thats okay? I meant to run 1 stick of RAM. Since the board only has two slots I thought it would be easier to upgrade later on. Plus, 2x4GB is more expensive than 1x8GB. Is it a huge drawbag only to have one stick of RAM installed?
