  1. Hi there, I need to purchase some used SAS drives for my MD 1200 and have found that 10Tib 12GB/s SAS drives are more readily available in the used market than 6/GB/s disks. My question: Since the MD1200 H200 is 6GB/s, if I plug 12GB/s SAS drives in, will the drives down scale to 6 or or will fail to recognize them? Thanks in advance
  2. Thanks @JorgeB! I will report back shortly
  3. Thank you for the tip. Problem solved: The Mikrotik server isn't compatible with UEFI so I rebuilt the VM using SeaBIOS and it worked. Thanks!
  4. Hey guys, My Unraid setup consists of 12 10TB SAS drives running BTRFS with 2 parity drives. Recently I started getting a consistent number of errors on my weekly parity check (Finding 17836 errors). I've manually ran the checker insuring 'Write corrections to parity' is ticked but at the end of each scan i get the same number of errors. According to SMART, all the disks appear to be in good health. I've attached the diagnosis file along with a couple of screen shots. As you'll see in the attached, I'm running a PowerEdge R730XD with a PERC controller flashed to LSI MegaRAID SAS-3 3108. Thanks in advance. quadra-diagnostics-20210501-2117.zip
  5. Thanks for your response. Yes however the instructions for Qemu/KVM are extremely vague. I also downloaded the ISO, created a new VM and booted the image with the same result. This isn't the first VM installed on my Unraid server, i have several Windows VMs that were a piece of cake to setup
  6. Thanks for the response @joecool169. Here are the boot options I have, none of which that work.
  7. Hi there, I'm trying to setup Mikrotik's The Dude monitoring server in KVM on Unraid. Instructions seemed pretty straight forward, download the raw disk image, set up a new Linux vm and point the disk to the folder and file that I moved into a subfolder in domains. The VM appears to setup find but no luck, I boot into the UEFI Interactive Shell (rookie move I guess) I would really appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction please.
  8. Coincidentally I have a similar challenge. I recently purchased a bunch of used SAS drives, stood Unraid, migrated a bunch of data over and decided to look into disk health. All drives check out with SMART Health Status: OK however when I dig deeper I see Non-medium error count ranges from 0 all the way up into the millions. I'm going to keep an eye on the error rate to see if it increases but I'm wondering if the Non-Medium errors are from the previous owner? I recall reading somewhere that smart errors get permanently recorded to the drive and that threes no way to clear them. Would love to hear anyones thoughts. Thanks in advance
  9. Fair point. Unfortunately though, i'm only dealing with 12x 10 TB 7.2K SAS drives so white performance is bound to suck. I've quote quite a bit of data and based on my calculations, I'd be waiting a long ass time waiting for the transfer to complete. So I went ahead and put 2x 1TB WD Blue SSDs and set them as a write cache. The cache still fills up about only about once a day which I can live with. RSync will fail and I wait for the mover to flush the cache, then restart RSync. Seems to be working.
  10. Hi All, So i took the plunge and purchased a license and now i'm copying over my legally acquired collection of movies and music. Transfer speeds were brutally slow around the 250ish Mbps mark so I decided to set the share to write cache the data. Perfect, write speeds pop up to 1.1 Gbps woo hoo! Not so fast, despite having the mover tool set up to flush the cache hourly, my SSDs can't keep up with the network. Every hour or so my cache fills up and Rsync fails and kicks back a message similar to the following: rsync error: error in file IO (code 11) at receiver.c (378) [receiver=3/2/3] rsync: [sender] write error: Broken pipe (32) My question; aside from purchasing a larger SSD (current SSD is 480 GB) is there a way to throttle the connection so the mover has time to push the cash to the HDD or have rsync simply wait its turn to continue writing? ..... or am I talking EMC Netapp type enterprise features? Thanks in advance.
  11. Thanks all. I went ahead and renamed the network.cfg file and as hoped, and Unraid created a new one. I'm now able to access my shares files and am in the process of copying them over to my new unraid server.
  12. Just to reiterate - WebUI is accessable in safemode but stops responding when when in normal mode. Currently running trial key. Thanks in advance unraid1-diagnostics-20210411-1128.zip
  13. Correct. I'm beginning to wonder if I created a network config issue. Should i delete the network.cfg file and reboot?
  14. Thanks SimonF, I just PM'd the diagnostics file to you
  15. Thanks for getting back to me SimonF. Yes, I tried safemode - same result (web UI unavailable) Contents of the go file are as follows
