  1. Update - I came across this post which links to another post - lots of issues only seeing one NIC. In the solution outlined on the second post - the OP had the NICs as multifunction but on different buses. It appears in the XML created by unraid - MY VM had them on different buses but NOT declared as multifunction. I took a long way around to find this out. Originally, I thought it might be that I needed to change the machine type to i440fx-x.x and when I did - PRESTO - the new VM saw all the NIC's. I copied the XML piece defining the NIC's from the new VM to the old VM and both VM's see all 4 NIC's. I have copied only the alias/passthrough info from that section of the XML for comparison - UNRAID CREATED FOR i440fx-4.2 FreeBSD VM: <alias name='hostdev0'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x06' function='0x0'/> <alias name='hostdev1'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x08' function='0x0'/> <alias name='hostdev2'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x09' function='0x0'/> <alias name='hostdev3'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x0a' function='0x0'/> UNRAID CREATED FOR Q35-4.2 <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x01' slot='0x00' function='0x0'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x03' slot='0x00' function='0x0'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x04' slot='0x00' function='0x0'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x05' slot='0x00' function='0x0'/>
  2. I have a 4 port Intel NIC and trying to run pfsense on a VM. When in pfsense I only see one port available and verified only one port "exists" with pciconf and ifconfig. I followed the instructions from the awesome space invader one and can confirm that I have successfully setup for pass-through of the NIC and deletion of the on-board motherboard NIC. How ? I did the same setup on a manjaro VM and successfully see all four ports ! What gives ? Perhaps a conflict with the Intel NIC and pfsense ? Seems odd with intel. Perhaps this should be on a pfsense forum. I wonder if I can install pfsense on a different Linux vm ? Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  3. Hi. I have been using UnRaid for about 8 years but recently migrated to rack mount system, added drives, converting to xfs, running VM's for Pfsense - so, much more active in the last 6 months. I am using unbalance to move files off of Disk 2 for conversion to XFS and I just now had 30 read errors on Disk 2. I got the warning - and I am very worried, but it seems like unraid should be more worried. I mean the warning is the same as when the cache is filling up or a drive is near capacity - it seems like this warning should be more "red" than the other warnings - but not really my issue. My issue is How do I know if Disk 2 is toast ? SMART for disk 2 shows very high numbers across the board. The numbers for two new 10TB IronWolf Pro drives are much lower - for example disk 2 parity (new) disk 6 (new) Att # 1 200 078 072 Att # 5 200 100 100vishnu-diagnostics-20200728-1159.zip
  4. Thanks for the replies, all is well now just a bit confusing. I don't use opt anymore and I don't know why, but I have done the steps below to confirm my problem and solution: Sickbeard is working fine. Edit Volume Mappings and change Container Volume /config to map to /mnt/cache/appdata/sickbeard - Web UI is not available, sickbeard does not run Change back to mape /config to /mnt/user/appdata/sickbeard/ and it is all good. Now, the container has no problem accessing a host path mapped as /mnt/cache/Downloads but the /config container volume won't work without being routed through /mnt/user but as I said, all is working now. Cheers.
  5. I have read many many guides for noobs and best practices for containers volumes but I have several questions and one problem. So far I have set up my volumes like this ..... /unraid_Media /mnt/user/Media/ /config /mnt/cache/appdata/XXXX (XXXX = sabnzbd, emby, plex, etc) /unraid_Downloads /mnt/cache/Downloads Q1 - By default and in some guides I keep seeing /opt/xxxx as a path used for "Host path" - what is "opt" ? Where is it ? Why would I use it ? Q2 - Since the cache is unprotected, why are we keeping the config files there ? Bitching - containers kept creating shares, some weren't cache only, I had a hell of a time "cleaning up" .... then my final clean up version created - the problem .... Problem - I kept getting the error "Data directory: /config must be writable (write permissions). Exiting" in sickbeard with the config mapped to /mnt/cache/appdata/sickbeard ..... I have solved it and it must be mapped to /mnt/user/appdata/sickbeard/
