  1. Mainly because its bent. Its taken some abuse in the last 12 years, I'd rather just replace it with something new.
  2. I am in the process of a major system overhaul and wanted to get some best practices. My array will be moved over to the new hardware as it stands, so beyond potentially seeing some v3.3 issues with the shucked drives, I don't have any questions surrounding that (plan to have array off on first boot to make sure drives all load). CACHE Question: My cache is moving from an SSD to a new NVMe drive. Can I just backup my SSD to the array to bring that online or should i bring everything online with the old SSD first? USB Stick: Should I bring everything online with the old USB stick, or can I do the transfer to a new stick at the same time? My old server doesn't support USB3.0 so I can't do it first unfortunately, but my old stick is 12 years old, so its time haha. Any other gotcha's I should know about? I have done a mobo/cpu swap before without issue, but this is the first time I am changing my SATA cards out to HBA cards and doing a lot more, so I am just trying to cover all my bases and not wipe my array haha.
  3. I believe my case can hold 18 drives total, I need to double check that as it will determine if I buy 2 internal only HBA cards or one with some externals for future growth. My storage is full, so unfortunately removing drives isn't really an option as when I replace one I only gain 10TB - 6TB each time. Data hoarding is a serious issue.
  4. i didnt think unraid was planning to support it for awhile (12th)?
  5. Link to build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/NwdcdD I am looking to upgrade my build for sadly the first time in about 8 years haha (maybe thats a good thing). Anyways, below is the run down, was wondering people's thoughts. I am hoping to hear overkill, since it's a first time in a while and I have a comfortable budget. The server is strictly a Plex/NZBGet/Sonarr/Radarr/Lidarr/various plex plugins machine. At any given time, I have 5-10 connections open to it from family members/friends. Strike thru's are the replaced parts green are parts being purchased CASE: Cooler Master COSMOS II 25th Anniversary Edition XL-ATX Full-Tower CASE MOD: SUPERMICRO CSE-M35T-1B 3 x 5.25" to 5 x 3.5" Hot-swap SATA HDD Trays CPU: Intel i7-2600K Intel i7-11700K CPU COOLING: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition 42 CFM CPU Cooler MOBO: ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 Gigabyte Z590 AORUS PRO AX ATX LGA1200 Motherboard MEMORY: 16GB DDR3 G.Skill Ripjaws V 64 GB (2 x 32 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18 Memory PSU: Corsair RM850x W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply PCIE Cards: SYBA SI-PEX40071 8 Internal SATA III Ports PCI-Express Card, PCI-e x2 Slot I/O Crest 4 Port SATA III PCI-e 2.0 x1 Supermicro AOC-S2308L-L8i PCIe 3.0 (8 internal SATA drives) Genuine LSI 9207-4i4e SAS HBA 6Gbps PCI-E 3.0 (4 internal, 4 external SATA drives) CACHE POOL: WD Black SN850 NVMe 1TB Crucial MX300 750GB PARITY: WD White WD140EDFZ-11A0VA0 14TB 5400rpm ARRAY: Disk 1: WD Red 4TB 5400rpm Disk 2: WD Red 4TB 5400rpm Disk 3: WD Ultrastar 8TB 5400rpm Disk 4: WD Red 8TB 5400rpm Disk 5: WD Blue 4TB 5400rpm Disk 6: WD Ultrastar 8TB 5400rpm Disk 7: WD Ultrastar 8TB 5400rpm Disk 8: WD Ultrastar 8TB 5400rpm Disk 9: HGST Deskstar 5K4000 4TB 5700rpm Disk 10: WD Red 4TB 5400rpm Disk 11: HGST Deskstar 5K4000 4TB 5700rpm Disk 12: TOSHIBA MD04ACA400 4TB 7200rpm Disk 13: WD White WD140EDGZ-11B1PA0 14TB 7200rpm Also, regarding the cache pool... is it recommended? Can I have my appdata on the NVMe drive while my downloads go to my old SSD? Or should I just do the one MVMe drive? EDIT: Changed Motherboard and RAM out to something a bit better.
  6. @shawnngtq, end up liking the build? I am looking to build out nearly the same specs, and noticed this when I was trying to find a motherboard. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/wickedathletes/saved/tKBDZL
  7. For the past few years I have been using unBALANCE to handle this whenever I replace a drive with a larger drive and want to distribute the wealth across the array. Are their better ways to do this, more specifically a more automated way? For example, I just replaced a 4TB drive with a 14TB drive. My array consists of 4, 8 and 14TB drives. Now that I have 15TB free on my server of 82TB total, I would love the ability to click a button and distribute that evenly among my 13 drives in the array, basically giving each drive 1TB+ free.
  8. sorry, what I meant was, for example: 3 libraries, Kid Shows, TV Shows and Movies. I only want to send updates for Movies and TV Shows. Can I specify specific libraries rather than all or nothing?
  9. thanks! can you specify which libraries get updated?
  10. im just gonna buck up and ask the embarrassing question... https://app.plex.tv/desktop#!/server/SERVERID How do I find this, cause I have NO IDEA lol.
  11. Running it now. How do you know if the one run on 1/13 did not have write turned on? My scheduler is set to run on the first day of the month but write corrections is on. So this must have been a crash, do those not write corrections by default?
  12. I did pull my disk 4 some time around the 13th. Maybe its seated bad? I plan to replace it because its causing a bug in unraid, so rather than wait for a fix I figured I would swap it with another 8TB, rebuild parity, then take that 8tb drive a clear it (hopefully fix the bug) and replace a 4TB drive with that. I didn't start this because I had some work done to my home that required power outages, now that thats over of course I have parity showing issues so now I don't want to do it yet haha.
  13. nothing... that is what is confusing me. Nothing in my logs that I can see either... I am running out of space, could a space issue cause something like this? I had 2 drives down to KBs left while something was trying to move to them. I am trying to replace a drive to add some more TB's but didn't want to do anything with my parity with errors in it.
  14. 1/2 was my last 0 errors run. 1/21 was my manually run check.
  15. one was scheduled, the second I manually ran with "Write corrections to parity" checked. Both came back with the same number. All monthly checks have been 0 prior.
  16. Write corrections to parity is checked. Do I need to check something else?
  17. My last 2 parity checks completed but I noticed it: Finding 24047 errors Duration: 1 day, 19 hours, 21 minutes, 52 seconds. Average speed: 89.7 MB/sec Same error count, both checks. Any thoughts on what could be going on? hades-diagnostics-20210121-1803.zip
  18. @limetech, just wanted to confirm the issue still exists in RC2: Here are diags from beta 30: https://forums.unraid.net/bug-reports/prereleases/unraid-os-version-690-beta30-available-r1076/page/2/?tab=comments#comment-10968 And here are the results of `hexdump -C -n 512 /dev/sdh` https://forums.unraid.net/bug-reports/prereleases/unraid-os-version-690-beta30-available-r1076/page/3/?tab=comments#comment-10972 limetech said: Thanks, yes that explains it. Probably, with -beta25 and even earlier releases, if you click on the device from Main and then look at 'Partition format' it will say 'GPT: 4KiB-aligned (factory erased)' - that (factory erased) shouldn't be there. Will fix for next release.
  19. any chance this was resolved in rc2 @limetech? Here are diags from beta 30: https://forums.unraid.net/bug-reports/prereleases/unraid-os-version-690-beta30-available-r1076/page/2/?tab=comments#comment-10968 And here are the results of `hexdump -C -n 512 /dev/sdh` https://forums.unraid.net/bug-reports/prereleases/unraid-os-version-690-beta30-available-r1076/page/3/?tab=comments#comment-10972 limetech said: Thanks, yes that explains it.

  20. @limetech, looks like this is still an issue for me in RC1 (beta 25 and back works fine, bug first discovered in beta 30), any update on a potential fix timeline? One of my drives shows "Unmountable: Unsupported partition layout."
  21. @limetech, any chance this is fixed in beta35? I can't chance it as I wont have a recourse back to nvidia drivers since the old plugins are dead in the water so I don't want to change bumping up to then have to go back without a way to go to the nvidia driver sets.

  22. that is definitely possible, but asking my brain to think back 3 years is a big task hahaha. It would have been one of 2 things, a rebuild of a disabled disk or a replacement of a 4TB disk as 3 years ago my server only had room for 8 drives.
  23. This drive is functioning 100% fine in beta25 and earlier. 29/30 it wont mount. I honestly don't recall. I would say I have pre-cleared 90% of my drives but their was a time when I didn't have the ability to pre-clear due to a drive failure and no extra bays to use (aka I was under the gun). Its possible this was the drive that was not, but I doubt it. The drive is roughly 3 years old. Is their a way out of this state, or with this drive am I stuck on beta25 for eternity haha?
  24. thank you and as always, you guys are the best!
