    I believe trurl will be eligible for sainthood by the time this thread is complete.
  2. If I'm not mistaken, you want the New Config to be NO Drives, not ALL drives. Then they will no longer be assigned to the array, but found as Uncongigured devices. Then you can run the Preclear.
  3. From what I think I know, the normal logging for Unraid doesn't help much after a "crash" where you must boot the system to access anything. Knock on wood - I haven't found myself there yet. As Unraid loads and runs in memory (RAM), it also keeps its syslog there as well. So when you boot, POOF it is gone. You can set up a syslog server, which will write the log to disk. Believe the intent of normal logging to memory is to reduce disk I/O, important for those who wish to keep disks spun down (or not hammering/filling the flash drive). Though with Ryzen lock ups, there really isn't much of anything logged. The CPU bug is in the chip, so when it happens, things just freeze up. So not much help from the syslog, regardless of how you collect it. Glad you like the story. I did really intend just to put an appliance down in the basement and forget about it. But it has grown a life of its own. Since writing that, I procured another gently used 8TB drives - in cold store backup along with a 6TB waiting in the same drawer of the server desk. Plus another portable drive for off-site backup storage. Unraid is a pretty decent platform, and it amazes me how much (and how easily) my little 4c/8t 1st gen Ryzen server can handle.
  4. I only needed to set Typical Idle Current (and appropriate DRAM settings) for my 1st Gen Ryzen 1500X. The 1st gen were the most notorious for Linux issues, but hasn't had one hang/freeze/crash for 1.5+ years since setting it correctly. As for Nerdtools, it will get caught up eventually. This is the price one pays to be an early adopter of a new revision of software (especially a release candidate). If a test bed system, no worries. For one you rely on, well... 😞
  5. I use Cloudflare, and have set up both Let's Encrypt and CF/Custom certs for this docker. If you use the Let's Encrypt cert, you need to set your Coudflare DNS to DNS Only.
  6. I have 5 drives + 1 parity drive, a mix of 8TB and 6TB. My parity runs ~14.5 hours and averages ~150MB/s. It has run longer, up to 16 hours, when there is other activity going on with the drives (Plex streaming movies or another PC perfo4rming a backup). 8TB / 16 HRs / 50-90 MB/s doesn't add up???
  7. In the console, you aren't looking at the files located on your Unraid share "appdata". The file exists in the Docker image.
  8. From your Motherboard manual. Check your BIOS setting for that controller:
  9. Did you try unplugging it for 30 seconds, then plugging it back in? 😝
  10. Your guess is correct. This is what I do, I have the three previous versions. I back up once a week.
  11. But then, for an 8TB drive, that would be 95% full. Then you need to consider the size of files that potentially will be added. A full system monthly backup of my desktop PC is over 1TB. A Remux 4K movie sometimes can approach that 400GB size.
  12. You know, it is tradition that the new guy buys beer for the rest of us here on the forum. 😁
  13. Yes, a reboot resolved it. Ended up restarting several times yesterday. The Power Co were having issues, and were without power for a few hours several times. I love having a UPS. I had even started a pre-clear on a new drive, and it handled the shut downs just fine, and resumed where it left off with no issues.
  14. Not sure it fixed it? I just updated both UD and UD Preclear plugins, after seeing the Samba errors in my logs after the earlier UD Preclear update. NOw the log reports this. Is this expected?

  15. Just to toss an idea out - The first Webb Telescope pictures are released tomorrow. I'll bet there will be something epic that can become the start of a banner...
  16. Perhaps a reverse proxy docker would be another possible solution.
  17. My Quadro P400 does. I have a dummy plug in mine.
  18. Perhaps if we array several of them together?
  19. One thing I would try first is to delete all of the codecs in your Plex appdata codecs folder. It has been a long running issue with plex, where a codec gets corrupt and causes a playback issue. When you restart Plex, it will go out on the internet and reload the folder with the current set of codecs. This issue is specific to Plex, on all platforms, not just Unraid.
  20. My server runs on one of the first 1st Gen Ryzen chips ever made. It is a per-ordered 1500X that I received a day before the day they were supposed to ship. It has run flawlessly after a few hiccups - which were resolved after following the FAQ which ChatNoir linked. First Gen Ryzen had issues running Linux. It was optimized for x86/x64 systems. The two things that will save you headaches are: -- Run your DRAM at the right speed. Other than benchmark bragging rights, I doubt you will notice a difference. See the 1st Gen table in the link, you will be running at 1866-2667. -- There are many posts on the Internet saying you need to disable C-States. My system has them enabled. I did have some system freezes until I set "Power Supply Idle Control" to "typical current idle". Since then, it has not locked up once. Depending on which motherboard you have, that setting may not be available (I believe most do, maybe labeled something equivalent). Been a year and a half that this system has been running, and am very pleased with just how well it runs without issues.
  21. Agree with the folks posting just above me here. I had several disks stuffed in my Core 500 case of my daily driver, with a couple of USB enclosures plugged into it. Needed to run it 24/7 as it was my media server + more. Being able to repurpose some old hardware and move those drives to an Unraid server allowed me to actually power down the system I use each day, and actually save power and wear on that system. That's what brought me to Unraid. Of course, I found it was capable of so much more. It is a very solid Docker platform, and the community has made it pretty simple for someone new to Docker to get things up and running quickly. I have added so much more functionality to my media server, as well as enhancing my home's backup strategy, networking, and home automation. But one need be careful - Finding things you can do is a rabbit hole that, while being rewarding, can also drain you wallet. You can click the link in sy siggy to read my tale. 😆
  22. I'm no expert with VMs, but understand a bit of them. Hopefully someone else will jump in and comment (and correct me, as needed). Some hardware resources are easy to split up to different tasks. But some things are more difficult. Ryzen 5800X is a 8 core (+ 8 "hyperthread") processor. Yes, you can pin the various threads of the processor to dedicate them to a particular VM. So effectively, each VM plus the OS will be running on a 2 cores + 2 threads - the equivalent of a processor from nearly a decade ago. So none of them will seem like they are smoking along on a current $450 processor. Other functions of the system are still shared. There is only one memory controller, so when all 4 (3 VM + Unraid OS) are running at once, each will be vying for the same memory bandwidth. It can get more congested accessing storage. This is significantly slower than DRAM memory. I believe best known practice is to locate drives for VM access to a Unassigned Devices drive, and I'd recommend SSD over a spinner if three different systems are trying to access at once.
  23. Well, it would be fun to set up a 10 disk array of 360k 5.25" floppies.
  24. Like most things related to computers, the answer is... It depends... The hardware you listed is strong, and capable of doing all that you say you wish to do. Where the "It depends" comes in is if you are hammering the machine by doing everyone of those at the same time. I'm also an "old guy" who remembers when games/software came with a listing of minimum requirements. Yeah, the game runs, but the performance wasn't always as smooth as you wish. Plex really doesn't put much demand on the server when not transcoding. Playing video at home usually is Direct Play, so the server is basically reading the file and sending to the player (client). You need to assess what demands the VMs you are going to run will have on disk I/O and the cpu. Then the questions become how frequently will 3 users be hitting the server at the same time, and how much money do you want to spend.
