  1. For those following I seem to have solved my issue using the guide here :- Note I used the steps outlined for Device Name method rather than IP address (skip step 4 and go straight to step 5). It's not as simple as when SMB v1 was enabled and I could just browse to the relevant file path but is apparently a more secure way of sharing files.
  2. Thanks so much, just waiting for a parity check to finish and will do that. I tried Googling a solution but got lost in the confusing posts it returned. I'm assuming I can also turn off SMB 1.0/CIFS Client on the Winows 10 side when I apply this change. Edit2: I followed your suggested steps and turned off SMB 1.0/CIFS Client in Windows 10 but now when I browse for my media directories over on the UnRAID server I can not see the existing file paths, just a single entry for BORG.modem (Borg being the name of my UnRAID server. Is there anything else I need to do on the UnRAID ser
  3. Thanks, that's what I thought from previous dabbling with UNRAID on my old N36L Microserver some time ago, just wanted to make sure it was still the same. I did check in the FAQs and online manual but couldn't see it mentioned there.
  4. With Unraid 6.8.3 once an array has been configured and the drive letters assigned (sda, sdb, etc) does it matter if the drives are moved around on the same controller? I have a HP Microserver Gen8 where the 4 HDDs are attached to a single SATA backplane attached to a single SAS cable connected directly to the motherboard. I have my 2 x 5tb HDDs located directly next door to each other in the first 2 slots and my 2 x 4TB HDDs in slot 3 and 4. I've noticed the 5TB HDDs run a little warm so wanted to shuffle them around to a 5/4/5/4 arrangement. The array is currently live and contains data
  5. Won't be an issue for me as the drive bays on my Gen8 Microserver are non-hot swap. Can't recall exactly which model it is but it only has 4 bays and is running a Pentium G2020T CPU.
  6. Thanks JorgeB, it is a Gen8 Proliant Microserver I found the issue discussed in that thread and have followed the suggested fix. I'm just awaiting a response to my question there before marking this as solved.
  7. ACPI Error Message Issues I was getting the same ACPI error messages detailed towards the start of this thread on my Gen8 Microserver which was already running the latest J06 BIOS dated 04/04/2019. I followed the advice given there namely ;- "This is essentially a misreading and does not affect anything but spamming your system log. To remove, disable "acpi_power_meter" module from the kernel by adding this line to the /boot/config/go file: rmmod acpi_power_meter" After a reboot I am now seeing this message in the system logs :- Nov 25 12:2
  8. I have started transferring data overnight and am seeing a bunch of the following errors in the system log (BORG is my server's name). Nov 24 12:19:49 Borg kernel: ACPI Error: SMBus/IPMI/GenericSerialBus write requires Buffer of length 66, found length 32 (20180810/exfield-390) Nov 24 12:19:49 Borg kernel: ACPI Error: Method parse/execution failed \_SB.PMI0._PMM, AE_AML_BUFFER_LIMIT (20180810/psparse-514) Nov 24 12:19:49 Borg kernel: ACPI Error: AE_AML_BUFFER_LIMIT, Evaluating _PMM (20180810/power_meter-338) I am just using the default disk settings and the fi
  9. It was more than just a case of changing the file system. 2 of the drives came out of a previous unRAID server that had failed drives. I was just making sure these 2 drives were still good prior to putting them back into service as the old box had been sitting idle for some time. The other 2 drives were new drives and my understanding is it's good practice to stress test them at least once before putting them into service. It's all good, the drives precleared just fine and I have a functioning unRAID server again.
  10. Thanks for the explanation. I did not know it was possible to run VMs from a cache drive. At the moment this box is purely for file serving purposes but that may change as I learn more about what unRAID can do. How do you determine the most appropriate cache size for any given array? I have 2 x 4tb and 2 x 5tb drives in mine with 1 of the 5tb drives being a parity drive so I effectively have 13tb of usable space in my array.
  11. I'm assuming it will be used for buffering during large file transfers. I have a lot of data to migrate to this new server, the data is currently on various HDDs spread across multiple machines. Yes, will run with parity on a single drive.
  12. The Preclear tool would not allow me to select the drive for wiping until I unassigned it. In any event it's done now, 2 drives done and 2 to go.
  13. I'm in the process of building up a unRAID NAS box running on a HP Microserver Gen8 platform. I only have 4 3.5" HDD bays all taken up with data drives (2 x 4tb & 2 x 5tb). I can sneak in a cache drive if use a SATA SSD or 2.5" HDD, there is no room for any more 3.5" drives. I will probably only have a single cache drive and am wondering if a 1TB 5400rpm HDD will be enough or should I spend a bit more and go the SSD route? There is only a single SATA port free on the mobo and I will have to piggy back power off something else.
