  1. Hi All, I am new to the UnRaid OS and I learned after a lot of research the app called Unassigned Devices does not support optical drives. That is a shame because it would have made things less complicated for me if this app recognized my two optical drives. Nevertheless, I now have learned the only way I can have my UnRaid OS recognize my optical drives is by installing a Virtual Machine (VM). I plan to install Ubuntu because it requires no product key. In contrast Windows 10 requires a product key. Can someone in the community be so kind to clarify the followi
  2. Dlandon, Thank you for your post. Just as a hypothetical idea. What if I buy a portable optical drive that connects via a USB 3.0 male connector to the female USB 3.0 port on my UnRaid NAS, will Unassigned Devices work with such a USB 3.0 connection? My hunch is UD might look at the portable optical drive as if it were an external hard drive or thumb drive connected to the USB 3.0 port. You mention dockers. Could you please name a docker app that supports an Optical Drive ? As for virtual machines, that is my last option because it seems to be the most complicated one.
  3. Hi All, I am new to the UnRaid OS. I installed the Community Addon and this was followed by installing the Unassigned Devices app. I have two Samsung optical drives. Each one is connected directly to the motherboard SATA ports. When I insert a 4.36GB DVD disk into the optical drive tray and close it my Unassigned Devices app does not recognize the data on the 4.36GB DVD disk. It's as though the optical drive is invisible to my Unassigned Devices app. Can someone please confirm to me if the Unassigned Devices app is designed to support Optical Drives? Currently,

  5. Squid, Thank you for your post. Below is a rough photo of my UnRaid OS after it has completed the bootup process in what I now know is called default mode. In this mode it asks for a USER and PASSWORD at the very end. I thought from this point it was a matter of typing in a terminal command to convert over to GUI mode. I didn't think the change required I make it within the GUI itself. I learned something new and thanks for the help.
  6. Hi All, I am new to UnRaid OS. I hope someone can clarify the following. How do I run my UnRaid NAS machine as a standalone PC? So far I am only able to operate my UnRaid NAS remotely from my Windows client PC. And if I connect a keyboard, mouse and monitor to my UnRaid NAS and allow it to bootup to the point where it asks for USER and PASSWORD information the UnRaid OS GUI does not appear after I enter this login information. In short, I have a 4TB MyBook hard drive which I want to unload to my UnRaid NAS by using Krusader all within my UnRaid NAS machine and not remotely f
  7. Thank you to everybody in the community for your help. Here is an update. I used the same SpaceInvaderOne IP numbers he uses in his video and I was still getting the same Windows Network Diagnostics report I posted above. The only difference being this new report was showing the new SpaceInvaderOne IP numbers I changed to. That was disappointing because I thought having unique Mellanox IPs for each machine was going to fix the problem, but it did not. Fortunately, I stumbled across a couple Youtube videos that filled the missing information from SpaceInvaderOne's video. They sug
  8. Vr2lo and tjb_altf4, Thank you for your help. I went back and took a closer look at the YouTube video I linked above. At time marker 10:33 minutes he uses a 192.168.11.199 IP for the Unraid PC. And at time marker 16:55 minutes he uses a 192.168.11.197 IP for the Windows PC. But the confusing part is how SpaceInvader says he is using the same IP he used in the UnRaid PC when he is typing in the IP for the Windows PC. In short, thanks for letting me know both IPs need to be different because I was thinking something else. Also, I don't know what an APIPA address is but I plan to use the s
  9. Hi All, I am struggling to get my peer to peer Mellanox MCX311A-XCAT ConnectX-3 connection to work as it is covered in SpaceInvader's YouTube video in the link below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMMopEiwiEo I have two identical cards. One in setup on my Windows RAID6 PC and the other is on my new UnRAID PC. My goal is to migrate the data from my Windows PC to my UnRAID PC. The Windows PC has the latest MLNX_VPI_WinOF-5_50_53000 driver installed. And I used TCP-IP in my Windows network setup window to configure the card. The IP I am using on both PCs is 169.25
  10. Hi All, In the process of setting up my Mellanox card on my UnRaid system I ended up breaking my network connection by duplicating the same network setup parameters SpaceInvader shows in his YouTube video below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMMopEiwiEo In short, I am no longer able to connect to my UnRaid system using my Windows10 client PC via my FIreFox browser. What UnRaid Terminal command do I use to RESET my network ETH0 network parameters to default values? I have to do it using my UnRaid Terminal because I am unable to do it using the UnRaid GUI being
  11. Ford Prefect, Thank you for such an excellent explanation. I seriously thought it was going to be a "plug and play" endeavour to mate both of my PCs with a CAT6 cable and enable them to interchange data. But thanks to your post I now see there is a lot more to it. Fortunately, I stumbled across the excellent YouTube video in the link below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMMopEiwiEo According to what is shown in the video what I want to do can be done using two Mellonx cards joined together with a special cable. I plan to follow the video and post the results I
  12. Hi All, My goal is to setup a peer to peer CAT6 cable connection between two PCs using only the LAN ethernet ports already included in each of the motherboards. PC#1 is my UnRaid PC and PC#2 is my Windows RAID5 PC. I need to migrate 20TB of data from the Windows RAID5 PC over to my UnRaid PC. Right now in my Windows RAID5 PC I am unable to find an IP for my UnRAID PC eventhough the two PCs are connected together with a CAT6 cable. In short, if I go to the Windows Network Sharing Center I cannot find any UnRaid PC IP address. My hope is somebody in the community co
  13. Vr2lo, I noticed while my UnRaid OS was working through the bootup process there were several lines that mentioned Mellanox. So at the least I can say my UnRaid OS is recognizing my Mellanox card and went through some kind of internal setup for it. However, the problem is my Windows RAID5 PC which holds the data I want to migrate over to my UnRaid PC. The Mellanox card setup on my Windows PC seems to have a problem. I think for now I'm trying a different approach which is doing a peer to peer CAT6 cable connection between both PCs using only the LAN ethernet port already inc
  14. Thanks for your post. It looks like my choices have narrowed down to using either Slot 4, 5 or 7. Slot 6 looks like it is for video card use so that one is out of the picture. Thanks for your help.
  15. Thank you to all for your help. Just a follow-up question. The graphic below is from my SuperMicro X10SRH-CF Motherboard Owner's Manual. As you can see it has both PCH (Platform Controller Hub) and CPU labeled PCI slots. Does the UnRaid OS work better with my Mellanox MCX311A-XCAT card by inserting it to the PCH PCI slot or the CPU PCI slot? In short, what is the best PCI Slot Number I should use shown in the graphic below?
