  1. Which flavor/processor did you get? The N5105? CWWK has been putting out a different model of board each week it seems (and case, and processor...). I am using one of Topton's air-cooled N5105 systems for my bare metal OPNSense firewall. There is a huge thread at STH forum on these as well. It has worked well for me, but I don't push my router that hard at the moment. Waiting for the symmetrical 1G that is supposed to arrive by the end of the year. But I read about folks running Proxmox, full Windows, etc. on these units. I'm not sure I would push my luck that far. As a NAS board, it should be OK as long as you keep expectations in check. It probably would be a good choice as the backup server I just built, considering it just sleeps for 2 weeks, then does less than 30 minutes of rsync-ing. If I was buying the parts I might have gone this route, but I had enough leftovers for nearly the entire system. The only gotcha I would watch for is there may be lack of driver support and/or compatibility with Unraid/Slackware and the hardware. FreeBSD (pfsense/opnsense base) just started driver support for the i226 nic (opnsense = yes, free pfsense = not yet). I'm unsure where Unraid is with this at the moment. Internal video support? Not sure. I've read about folks doing microcode updates for the processor and BIOS updates emailed to them from China. For me, I would really not wish to get that far into the weeds for a $200 computer board. Looking forward to reading of your experience.
  2. Yes. File system overhead. 7.5GB is 0.7% of the 1TB drive.
  3. Well, Frigate, it's not that important. 😉 (Sorry - I just couldn't resist.)
  4. Every question gets answered.... Eventually. 😜
  5. I fought with this setup for some time back nearly a year ago. Tried many different configurations, this one works and is secure. I'm sure there are other configs that work.
  6. It is difficult to see exactly how you have things configured. You definitely have an issue with addressing your CLoudflare SSL certificate. This is how I'm configured: # forward all traffic to Reverse Proxy w/ SSL ingress: - hostname: next.DOMAIN.COM service: originRequest: originServerName: DOMAIN.COM - hostname: overseerr.DOMAIN.COM service: originRequest: originServerName: DOMAIN.COM I have several more subdomains, all as this. Two are not even on the same machine as NPM/Cloudflared. The tunnel works fine, and NPM forwards as expected.
  7. You had me second guessing myself for a moment. It is 8-9 posts up the thread.
  8. A quick follow up on how well this is working. I have the User Script cron job set to run twice a month, on the 14th and the 28th. Yesterday was the first time where the script ran automatically, where I wasn't triggering it while sitting beside watching. (After all, isn't automating things the reason we do this stuff?) I was sitting in a diner having breakfast, 200 miles away from home, when the attached Telegram texts started coming in. Don't you love when a plan comes together? 😁
  9. Of course you can. No different than backing up any other files. A bit of a hassle if you are trying to have several UD external USB drives as the backup destination, as you need figure how to split up your data set among several drives. Or you could create a pool in Unraid, and put a backup share there. I recently took some old hardware I had on hand, and built a second Unraid server just to back up the media files on my main Unraid server. Several people tossed some good ideas into this thread:
  10. You will need backup storage space as large (really larger) than the space that the media files take. Media (as I assume movie/TV video and audio files) does not compress (zip, tar, rar) as it is already compressed as part of the encoding process.
  11. I hade similar issues when trying to get my Ryzen iGPU to display the local GUI. Try this:
  12. I think I've read somewhere "Parity is not a backup". (Maybe it was here on the forum 😉). That's why I built the backup server - to back up the last of the data that wasn't duplicated somewhere. My main server does utilize a parity drive, as it allows one to perform array maintenance tasks much more easily. I just recently shrunk/moved/swapped 5 drives around in my array. Over 100 hrs of rebuilding, zero errors, minimal stress. For the backup server, if a drive fails, the data is on the main server. Replace the drive, run the sync script, back in business. No real down time, as the server's only purpose is to archive.
  13. I really like my PiKVM. It has worked flawlessly since I got my IGPU and Unraid to play nice with one another (not the PiKVM's fault). I've been wanting to add Cloudflared locally on it, so I can use CF Tunnel and Zero Trust to further isolate it from the mean, cold world. Unfortunately, there isn't a pre-built version of Cloudflared that runs on Arch with the Pi4 ARM processor (it is a special flavor, from what I understand). I went to build it myself, but Go had been updated a week before I tried, and another dependency now needs to get updated before I can proceed. I have CF Tunnel running through NPM, but that does me no good if I need to power on the server, now would it? I've been trying to avoid going with Tailscale, only because of the funky DNS blocking scheme here at work. CF Tunnel pumping everything through port 443 and my unknown domain goes right through. Can't even connect to my server with Unraid Connect from work. Like the choice of case as well. As you read in my backup server thread, it is in the Silverstone SG11 Sugo cube. I bought this case because it can fit both a standard ATX power supply and mATX motherboard. I wasn't happy with the cooling, when trying to have it be a quiet PC. Replaced it with the Fractal Core 500, which only fits an iTX motherboard, an added expense when I changed cases. Fast forward a few years, now the old case and motherboard are reunited. Guess it was meant to be.
  14. Better question: Is it worth it? It will be a power hog with a very early encoding chip, taking up 2 PCIe slots, that may or may not work. A second hand Quadro P400 for $50 USD will sip power and likely work better. For a little more money, better performance from a Quadro T400.
