  1. Johnnie.Black - Yeah, not too worried about it unless someone wants to troubleshoot. My understanding is that the "Initialize drives" portion of the RAID controller writes something to the drive that jacks things up. I'm more of a purest and my friend is too, so we're running direct until he gets a new card. That said, if anyone has a spare SAS2 card laying around... PM me. KJ
  2. Howdy, folks! As promised, wanted to check with a follow-up. I had a chance to tinker a bit at my buddy's house. First, it's humming along great. And noise is not bad at all under the desk. Looks nice, too. The only issue is that initialization of drives... wasn't sure if it was writing to drives or just tweaking the RAID card. We pulled them out after getting the array online and tried plugging directly into SATA on mobo. No go. Unraid saw the drives - even correct serial numbers, etc., but array wouldn't start. Friend doesn't want his data tied to a particular card, so for now, just running direct to mobo SATA with no RAID card. Will get a $30 LSI card at some point and start using that way. But yes, great easy entry system.
  3. Speed isn't issue at the moment. More curious as to whether the "initialize drive" impacts usability at a later time. I also understand case issue, but the main point was that it is literally everything needed and working, sans drives, for $120. This was as much as experiment in cost effectiveness as anything. I'll post back with updates.
  4. Yeah, $120 is almost stupid cheap at this point! Just wanted to provide an update! First things first - it works! Yay! Had to initialize the drives. Have not determined yet if it was just a write to the Adaptec card (logging them) or if it actually wrote to the drive, but Unraid is working, sans temperature readings. My friend is unavailable for a few weeks, but when he gets back, we're going to plug drives direct to sata on mobo to see if Unraid still hums along smoothly or if the initializing did something to the drives, themselves. Noise isn't too terrible. You know it's on, but it's certainly not data-center ram-jet level. We might work to swap out for some quieter fans (or just put in a quieter single power supply). So the verdict is that it seems to be a decent entry-level platform! I'll come back when I have more! Kermit
  5. Howdy, fellow unRAIDers! Not sure if anyone has had experience with Intel servers, but a friend is looking at the INTEL SC5650HCBRP for $140 Pros: Tower, case, psu, some RAM, hot swap, etc. Option to add 2nd CPU, up to 288GB Ram, CHEAP price. Cons: Adaptec 5405Z Card barely supported (but shows support elsewhere - requires drive "initialization") (can ultimately swap out if run into trouble) Biggest Question: AXX6DRV3GEXP backplane - can it break the 2TB limit!? My biggest hope is this thread that references larger hard drives. Cause if 2TB isn't an issue, it's a very low entry price point, sans drives. Might pick up a spare! :-) Any other major concerns anyone can foresee? Many thanks! Kermit
  6. Just wanted to chime in and say thank you for the replies! I actually found a 36 drive version with SAS2 backplane and beefier CPUs. Bwuahahahaaa!!!! KJ
  7. So after hitting a wall on my research here , I think I may have found a new option. My biggest fear is dropping 1K (for the below config) and then it not working. Please double check - from what I can see, each item is supported by unRAID. Thanks! SuperMicro 848A-R1K62B 24x LFF Processors: 4x INTEL XEON PROCESSOR E5-4620 EIGHT CORE 16M CACHE 2.20GHZ Installed Memory: 32x Dimm Slots Available (128 GB - 8x16GB) Hard Drives: 24x 3.5" Hard Drives Trays Included Raid Controllers: 3x LSI 9210-8I Installed (Flashed to IT Mode) Power Supplies: 3X 1200W Power Supplies Installed System Board: X9QRI-F+ Backplane: BPN-SAS-846A Network: Intel Quad Port PCIe network adapter
  8. Sent you a PM. Looks like you have multiple from the pic. Hoping you have some left! Thanks, KJ
  9. Thanks for the quick reply. Guess my search continues ... 😞 And it continues here ...
  10. Howdy folks! I'm hoping for a bit of advice on a potential build I'm working on. My current K9A2 Platinum and Phenom II x4 isn't quite able to hang with my recent move to Plex. I want to move to server-grade but I'm still only a mid-range geek. Stumbled across this on Craigslist. Specs: Supermicro Storage Servers (2U) Model: CSE-826TQ-R800UB Fully loaded systems however they have No "Storage" hard drives included! Each unit will include all hard drive caddies, mounting rails and power cord(s). * Dual CPUs - Intel Xeon Processors E5640 @ 2.67GHz * Motherboard - X8DTU / X8DTU-F * Network Card - Intel PRO/1000 PT Dual Port (EXP19402PT BLK) * RAID - 3Ware 9650SE-12ML * 2 x 80GB internally mounted Intel SSDs * 8 x 4GB 2Rx4 PC3 10600R (total of 32GB) Memory I see elsewhere that the BPN-SAS-826TQ Backplane is good to go with unRAID. However, my issue is the 3Ware 9650SE-12ML, which I cannot confirm will work well, particularly with >2TB drives. So the questions: 1) Anyone have success with the 9650SE-12ML on unRAID at a 2TB+ level? Not listed on page and seems hokey elsewhere. 2) If it's a no-go, how hard would it be to switch it to an Adaptec RAID 71605 (a bit of space with four extra ports if I move cases later)? Would I need a special cable for this? Is there a better controller you'd recommend? My first inclination was two 8 port M1015 but I THINK I only have 2 PCI slots so I'd lose ethernet card if I do that, correct? I THINK that the price is decent for the server, itself, given it has everything but drives (I have my own). I just want to make sure I can easily move past the 2TB drive limit. Key point is that it's close by for pickup. Many thanks, in advance. Kermit
  11. Howdy, I know this is an older post, but for anyone looking, my understanding is that you're looking for "bonding" - though I believe it focuses more on fault tolerance and balancing. Here's some background: http://www.linuxhorizon.ro/bonding.html Good discussion here: Cheers, Kermit
  12. Join club! I'm on a ten year oldi AMD Phenom™ 9600 Quad-Core @ 2300 and get the sam error with "Fix Common Problems." I see a lot of folks fixing the issue on intels, but not a lot on the AMD side. One mentioned modprobe powernow_k8 but that worketh not for me. I'm still hanging with: # cat /proc/cpuinfo |egrep -i mhz cpu MHz : 2300.212 power management: ts ttp tm stc 100mhzsteps hwpstate cpu MHz : 2300.212 power management: ts ttp tm stc 100mhzsteps hwpstate cpu MHz : 2300.212 power management: ts ttp tm stc 100mhzsteps hwpstate cpu MHz : 2300.212 power management: ts ttp tm stc 100mhzsteps hwpstate Posting my logs in case help is available.

  14. So I was reading about VNC settings and one post said something to the effect of "your virtbr0 might now have incoming connections enabled... goto network settings and enable" Which I did. Immediately lost connection to UnRaid. Can't even ping the port but I have a new IP address showing up (I told the network settings to obtain it's own). Now looking back, perhaps I should have put a new card in to bridge to... I wasn't thinking virtual, etc. But how do I fix? I can login directly to hard keyboard and monitor if need be. Thanks, Kermit
