  1. Hi all, Given the success of my transition to UnRAID, I'm actually looking to transfer all of my non-gaming needs to a single device. This will help keep power consumption, space utilisation down, while improving the tidiness of my current setup (see picture) and probably the performance of it too. All it's currently being used for is Plex and Downloads, but I'd like to transfer the backup drive implementation. In this image you can see: Old ESXi Host (Lenovo TS-140). All of the VMs are now running in UnRAID as Dockers and this is turned off. Old QNAP TS-419P+ which is currently acting as a backup drive (can transfer this function to UnRAID) and has 3 x 6TB WD Red drives (one of the bays is broke). Sky Router Philips Hue Bridge A Cisco and a Netgear switch. Random Chinese fanless PC that is running Sophos XG Next-Gen Firewall (Core Firewall, IDPS, WAF, Proxy, DNS, etc.) One thing I will need to make this successful, however, is some more HDD cages to sit inside my case. What I'm after are these, but they're like rocking horse poo as I can't find any to buy anywhere. I've found this, which looks like it'll do a similar job, but I just wanted to buy the official ones if I could as they look better quality and come with the rubber dampers etc. Do you guys think they'll work? Any other recommendations? Thanks in advance.
  2. I only have new Edge and IE installed. Didn't think there would be much point in installing Chrome given they're both the same thing and IE doesn't load anything up. Seen people having issues on Firefox too, so didn't bother; although I could. I just try to keep installed apps to a minimum (although tell that to my RGB software on my gaming PC...).
  3. Sorry for the delay in response, I've updated the 'go' file (very frustratingly due to the issue stated here), but I've managed to do that. Very much a case of RTFM in this instance. haha
  4. I'm getting this issue. I get 20 seconds or so out of it if I'm lucky before it goes blank and I have to refresh. I've disabled everything that could effect it and still no luck.
  5. Fixed it, I think. In that last post on page 2, there's a post by "Hoopster" that states "what happens when you type "modprobe i915" at the console?". Thought I'd give it a bash and boom. Files now exist. Totally bizarre, but perhaps worth updating the guide as it seems like that builds the folders. Aaaaand it says it right there in the guide to actually do that. Once again, I'm an idiot. haha
  6. Found this in the forums, but the links don't work and I'm not particularly experienced at messing around with the Kernel. I also have another issue with the Terminal going white after about 20 seconds. No idea what's going on there, but I'll try to fix one thing at a time. haha
  7. Hi all, Trying to enable hardware acceleration pass-through for Intel QuickSync on my server by following this guide, but I cannot find the directory "/dev/dri" as stated in the title. I searched for similar issues and found a load of other issues but not many resolutions. I have an ASRock Z390 Extreme4 motherboard and an Intel i5-8400 CPU on UNRAID 6.8.3. I know that it works because I used the same hardware on Windows before installing UnRAID and it worked flawlessly. I have double checked and updated the BIOS this morning and still no directory found. Is there something I should have done first? Is there an equivalent of 'driver updates' that I'm not aware of in UnRAID? Appreciate any support. Best,
  8. I wasn't sure about if this would work. I couldn't remember any options in the UEFI for it and I usually configure it in Windows. When I've had Linux distros in the past, pressing the power button was a kill-switch effectively and I *really* didn't want to do that as it had taken me 2 days to transfer the 20TB of data that I've got.
  9. Hey, no, it was all local. Share is stored locally on UnRAID, SAB is in a Docker locally. Ironically, my virtual Windows box with my old instances of SAB, Sonarr, and Radarr could connect in just fine. Anyway, I watched the Spaceinvader1 video again and it worked OK. Must have been entering the info in wrong somewhere.
  10. Scratch that. I've been even more of an idiot. I found the account that has been overwritten and Lastpass, being the sexy bit of software that it is, has history of previous passwords. Love you Lastpass. 😍
  11. Hi all, As per title. I've been an idiot. I use Lastpass and I think I got rid of the password for the 'root' whilst messing around with another Web page that used 'root' as the default username. 🤦‍♂️ I've read the 'lost password guide' and it tells me to shutdown the server, remove the flash, delete some files, and all will be sorted. Not an issue. However, how am I supposed to shut the server down without access? I know in other Linux Distros you can tab to a command line at login. But as this is via Web page, that won't work. Any ideas?
  12. Sorted it. Followed the Spaceinvader1 video. Was looking in the wrong place.
  13. Hey, I've got an issue with SABnzbd on my UnRAID platform. I've been using it for about 2 years now on a Windows 10 box and then connecting via an SMB share to transfer the files across. Thinking of just using my UnRAID platform to run it all, so installed it and it loads fine. Issue I have is trying to find the folders I want for downloading. I have created /mnt/user/Downloads/Downloading and /mnt/user/Downloads/Completed and are set to public share access with SMB. I try typing the full directory path into the Sab config and it says "Cannot create directory". Not only this, but I can't find it if I click on the "Browse" button. If I click that, I can navigate to the root drive, but when I click on /mnt/ I end up with nothing. The Volume Mappings in the Docker itself are pointed to the right place. Any ideas?

  15. Great, thank you! I'll add this to the initial post. I didn't know that it only effected the way parity was created, but because I removed parity and enabled turbo-write at the same time, I wouldn't have noticed.
