  1. you guys are good. yes I meant /mnt/user, couldn't remember if it was abbreviated or not in unraid. Thanks again guys, love this place and I would not have been able set unraid up and troubleshoot without you guys here. Really appreciate it
  2. Right on the money Squid! Sucks that I had to reconfigure, but the appdata folder was actually pointing to the cache drive, while the backup docker was pointed to the mnt/usr. Even though the appdata folder is set to use "cache only." I must have missed this in my original configs. Thanks so much!
  3. I have used watch nvidia-smi and looked under GPU-Util on the right side of the box. Right below that is a percentage. Is that something else?
  4. right, I know it's working. I just dont get how it spike to 56% when I irst run the stream or fast forward while plex fills it's buffer I guess. If it goes tht high with one stream, how will I be able to use multiple streams? I thought one stream is supposed to barely affect the p2000. Is this normal?
  5. Hey guys So I got this up and running finally, even though the P2000 is on an X4 PCI-E 3.0 lane. Should I have any bottlenecks with this in terms of using the p2000 to the fullest being that it's on an x4 lane? I have an m1015 HBA on the X16 lane (my motherboard make the second x16 slots X4). I installed the CA User Scripts, and copied and pasted the most recent script listed here to patch. When I check on nvidia-smi it spikes my p2000 up to about 56% when transcoding just starts or if I fas forward in the movie, for an x265 1080p file. Is that normal? I thought it's supposed to barely use any of the GPU for 1 stream?
  6. Thanks, but I need an mAtx one. So it's worth it to try to get it working with my current board getting a replacement? Even though one of the slots is 4x? Are you saying you would rather put the p2000 graphics card in the 4x?
  7. Okay got it. Must be a motherboard issue then... Question, if I get a replacement one, the P2000 will go to the x16 slot, and then the M1015 HBA will be in the x4 slot. Would there be any bottlenecks with this? I'm thinking if I should just get a whole new motherboard all together. But I also can't seem to find an matx one that would do X8/X8. What is everyone else running here for an intel 8th gen matx board? Any suggestions?
  8. Oh boy, so a cipset that has 2 X16 sots that actually are split into x8 and x8, won't bottleneck the P2000 card even though the card is an x16 card and it should detect without issue? My issue right now is I don't understand why the 1st PCIE-X16 slot is not detecting anything in my motherboard, and even plugging in just my M1015 lights up a yellow light on the HBA and it doesn't get detected. When i plug it into the 2nd PCIE X16 slot, the M1015 blinks green and works fine, as does the P2000. So If I'm gonna get yet another new motherboard, I want to make sure it's going to be working fine before throwing more money into this.
  9. Okay will try changing the gen to 2? im still learning all this now. I put the x1 card on a different slot which should limit the second x16 to x2 just x4. But it seems that x4 could bottle neck the p2000 even if I could get it to work somehow? I’m shocked more people aren’t having this issue. I’m okay with just getting another board at this point. But I don’t even know which one to get! What can I use to be able to use the HBA and the p2000 without bottle necks??
  10. Yes. I knew about the m.2 and SATA. I’m not using an M2 card. Im not sure what a u .2 drive is and I’m not using wireless only Ethernet. So so what should I do guys?? What kind of motherboard do I need to be able to use the usual LSI HBA and the p2000 with no bottlenecks? I’m shocked that I haven’t come across more people having issues. Especially since so many are using graphics cards and HBAs and expanders! At this point I’m okay just buying another board. But I don’t even know which one at this point. And I don’t want to mess this up again :(
  11. Guys I need some help. So in January I upgraded my server from unraid V5, got a new mobo, i8400 CPU and RAM. Many of you guys helped me set everything up. So now about 1.5 months ago, I picked up an nvidia p2000 card on sale at Dell to use it for transcoding in plex. I've been super busy and finally unpacked it and installed it yesterday and it turns out that I keep getting an Nvidia-SMI error. I posted in the nvidia docker thread and it seems that my new motherboard may be the issue that the system isn't seeing the P2000 card? The motherboard is an ASRock H370M Pro4 that has 2 PCI-E X16 slots, and few X1 slots. I am using an IBM m1015 flashed to LSI IT mode for 8, in one of the X16 slots and installed the P2000 in the other, and also a 2-port SATA controller in one of the X1 slots. The fan on the card spins up when I turn the system on... After spending all evening yesterday changing BIOS settings, etc.. I can't get it working. I did some more digging on the board and the description shows this: "Slots: 2x PCI-Express 3.0 x16 Slots (single at x16, dual at x16/x4)" CHBMB, responded in that linuxserver plugin thread and said the motherboard basically uses the second X16 slot and turns it into an X4 slot? And that's why the card is not being detected??? Can someone please help me out with this? I didn't want to clog up that thread but I had only bought this board a few months ago. Is this the reason the card isn't being detected? ** What a clusterf*ck. So I just unplugged the m1015, and the 2-port sata controller. I plugged only the p2000 into PCI-E 1 = nothing took it out and plugged it into PCI-E #4 (the second X16 slot) and it detects it! Now I tried plugging the M1015 HBA into the PCI-E #1 (also supposed ot be X16) and it doesn't even detect the M1015. So one slot is absolutely useless! How is this not false advertising from ASROCK??? Guys, so what do I do? I realize I'll have to get a new motherboard again now. But I can't even find any matx that have 2 PCI Express slots with both working at full X16! But there's gotta be a way to do it, There are plenty of people using LSI HBAs and also a P2000. What's the answer? I have a Nexus Prominent 9 case with 3 5-in-3 Norco cages. So I need to run 15 hard drives. I'm also using an SSD flash drive, and thinking of adding another to mirror the cache so need potentially 17. Do I need to then find a mobo that do 1PCI-E at full X16 and possibly another at full X8, and then another X1 for perhaps a multiplier? Is that what you guys are doing? Notsure if 8x would be enough for 15 drives not to bottle neck? I'm assuming that's what everyone is using because I can't find a board with 2 X16 slots. Can you guys help me please or recommend something? MaybeI just have a defective ASROCk board where one of the PCI-E X16 slots just isnt working?
