  1. Added a NVIDIA card this weekend. Followed instruction in Q3 of the support documentation but I do not have the fields NVIDIA_DRIVER_CAPABILITIES and NVIDIA_VISIBLE_DEVICES. I added the variables manually and set appropriately but Transcoding is not using HW. Using Unraid 9.2 and have Plex Transcode settings ticked off. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you
  2. I had an issue w/ the constant adopting/disconnect loop. Maybe the following will help someone else. I have the unraid box set with a DNS resolvable name in pfsense. In my case just "tower". So using ssh from the unifi device I can ping w/ simply "ping tower". The controller hostname/ip set to the ip used to access unraid. I know have selected "Override inform host with controller hostname/IP" as suggested by others and should hopefully keep the issue from reoccurring. Since I am using Windows I used putty to ssh into the device using the ip address assigned by the router (pfsense) and port 22. The mistake I used here was trying to use the controller ID/PWD instead of what was in the Site/Device Authentication field of the controller. Of course w/ SSH checked there. With those credentials login to the device. Then run the "set-inform http://unraidip:port/inform" replace unraid ip w/ the address for your unraid box such as 192.168.x.x replace port with the port number defined in your unraid unifi controller container as "Port used for HTTP portal redirection.:" the port thing was the next stumbling block for me as I was attempting to use the port of the controller. I'm not the best w/ these things so hopefully this is clear enough for anyone w/ a similar issue. Sorry if it is a repost. Thank you to everyone providing their assistance.
  3. I'm attempting to utilize the new wireguard setup after a successful openvpn setup. I use Torguard for my VPN service. I have wireguard selected and I utilized the tool here https://torguard.net/tgconf.php?action=vpn-openvpnconfig for creating a wireguard config from Torguard. I entered in my details as requested to generate the config. I then started and stopped wireguard service and replaced the information in the wg0.conf file w/ my config information. I verified that the information stays after booting up the container. I also updated "Extra Parameters" to be "--privileged=true". The container starts buts that is all I get. I attached a screenshot of my settings w/ user and pwd temporarily removed. I would appreciate any assistance. Thank you in advance.
  4. I apologize for the lack of clarity. I did not see the format option at the time, had my browser a little scrunched. The option was down at the bottom. I stopped the array and replaced the drive into the slot I was attempting before. Once that was done I selected the format option. After completing the format its added the drive but the orange triangle lists it as "contents emulated". The parity sync is running now. Thanks again for replying.
  5. I attempted running the two most recent ver of the plugin on two new drives and both failed step 5. Swapped cables with working drives and still failed the same. I attempted just to add one of the drives to the array due to the above noted issues w/ the plugin for my ver of unraid 6.4.x. I get a "unmountable no file system" error for the disk I had attempted preclear on. So I removed the drive from the array and put it into unassigned disks. Should I wait it out for the plugin update or is there a better course of action? The array says it is missing that disk now but I never wrote to it or ran a parity check with it so it seems like it would be fine to leave as is. Thanks Justin
  6. The Parity is finished building and checking and so far so good. Thanks again.
  7. Thank you. I got better results broadening my search from just my motherboard, to motherboards in general. The consensus seems to be trying to run the large drive as the primary windows drive then there was issues w/ the MBR being able to partition it properly. Having SATA and a 64 bit processor (AMD LE-1100) are pretty good indicators that the larger drives are ok. I ordered a 4TB HGST to come in tomorrow. I'll load that as the new partition drive and see what happens. I'll follow up with my results. Thank you again.
  8. I have an older MB Foxconn A7GM-S AM2. I don't think it would support a drive size greater than 2TB, but how do you find out for sure. I found the manual but it doesn't list drive size limits, most likely because it wasn't an issue at the time. Thanks in advance.
  9. huh, guess I changed it then late one night troubleshooting something else. I don't remember changing it or for what reason I would have, but that was the problem. Thank you Have you guys enjoyed the change from 5 to 6?
  10. Sorry I wasn't paying attention like i shoulda been and didn't notice I was in the 6 forums. I didn't think it would, but it was the only difference I could find in the disk. In global share I have both included and excluded disks as empty, so that should make all available and none excluded. The specific user share I'm looking at has included disks as blank, so that should be all disks. Excluded disk is only disk5. min free is at the default 0 and split level is at the default 1. Thank you
  11. Running 5R16C. After adding a new disk the global share is not writing to it. Allocation is "most free" so that new disk should be the default to be written to. I have one disk excluded and the included disks is empty so should be all. I did notice the new disk was formatted as "4k aligned" where all of my other disks are unaligned. I would be grateful for any assistance.
  12. I do have two of them already but thanks for the tip. The box is outdoors so I liked having a fan blow directly down the drives. I did some more digging and found a post where a guy had to use some C-clamps on the 910 to bend the metal fins out of the way in the 5.25 bays. For the price vs a antec 900 I'll put a little elbow grease into it.
  13. Has anyone had success with installing the Supermicro 5x3 into the AZZA 910? Looks like a great value. http://www.amazon.com/AZZA-Helios-CSAZ-910-Mid-Tower-Black/dp/B002RS4HVQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1300905152&sr=8-1
  14. Wow, would have never even thought about checking office depot. Thanks for the superbiiz link. I would be plugging into the following 5x3. http://www.servercase.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=CSE-M35T-1B&Category_Code=MS.
  15. Sorry I wasn't too clear on that reply. That's what I was getting at was whether or not through put was really an issue on PCI bus for unraid if you were not splitting up a file(movie/video/music/document) over multiple drives. Thanks again. The cables seem to run about $20 and the card $120, does that sound about right?
