  1. Ok thanks. Anyhow, you were right - as soon as I enabled ICMP protocol and the unraid IP, it immediately shows as green.. thanks for saving me some time!
  2. Sorry for dumb question but which logs should I check and what is easiest way of doing that? If I click the log icon on the right of the row for this share under unassigned devices it is just blank And thanks both for confirming on other question re license
  3. Hi all, I can't seem to work out why any remote SMB or NFS share mounts (a synology NAS I use for critical backup) will not show the mount button enabled under Unassigned Devices section of the Main page. If I click log then nothing appears. It used to work and when I add the share with user name / password I get a "Success!" pop-up window. My best hunch is if perhaps accessing an external share counts towards my unraid disk limit? (I only did basic version since I physically can't fit more than 4 drives + 2 SSDs in my case) If this is the case, it is fine and I will upgrade but wanted to check this was definitely the issue before I pay more to potentially be disappointed! I did check the FAQ and saw it say that all drives that appear as linux drives other than the flash drive will count but I am not quite sure if SMB/NFS shares appear as such (I assumed they were mounts within an existing share) Thanks for the guidance! Overall am loving unraid.. has been a bit of a game-changer from underpowered Syno world..
  4. Thanks - that is just if I want to provide basic login authentication to hosts myself, right? In which case, I do not use that.
  5. Can I ask a paranoid question - when I set this up original I could swear there was some message about needing to move the default passwords file location from www folder or something? For the life of me, I can't find any mention or reference to this elsewhere so not sure if was just hallucinating or not... Point is - I have nginx working great with a mix of externally accessible and lan-only sub-domains but want to ensure I haven't left some silly gaping security hole.. I have of course set up a strong password for nginx itself and all the hosts have their own login access controls Thanks
  6. This worked a treat for me as well using Nginx proxy manager - only tweaks were to update the docker config path which I specifically limited to read-only on the certificate folder for the plex certificate for a little extra security. I also didn't need to do step 3 either and Plex is now working remotely via my own domain (including via web + android / tv apps). My main question (part out of curiosity, part to ensure no gaping security risk) is what is the above actually implementing? Is it that we effectively have SSL encryption from REMOTE DEVICE<->NGINX SERVER which is then reverse proxied but encrypted again between NGINX SERVER<->PLEX SERVER? (i.e. there is in essence one superfluous extra encryption running on the plex server in contrast to a typically https->http reverse proxy)
  7. Also double check device info page unraid to ensure you havent selected the card for pcie passthrough. I just bought a 1660 and it worked perfectly.
  8. Ok thanks - will try and open up my mItx then and extract out its beloved rtx 2070 I got as a retrospective steal in April 2020! Re plex, yes I have plex pass and set it up according to your guide and was running a 4k video on my phone set to max 1080p quality - the UI showed this accurately but the video froze. Will keep you posted - looks like will need to find a stopgap cheap basic nvidia gpu in interim (just for windows vm hosting blue iris).. something like a GT 710 I guess?? Blue iris won't be hardware accelerated on that basis but its just to make the vm function. Thanks again UPDATE: So I ran memtestG80 which test's GPU VRAM - it works in 128 MB iterations and starts off fine and then suddenly throws off a ton of errors... got the same result from OCCT testing software. Interestingly enough the ebay seller immediately accepted my return... pretty horrible situation for many whereby its impossible to buy anything but the most basic GPUs new! UPDATE2: Am pleased to say I returned that card and got a refund.. then "splashed out" on a 1660, just about squeezed it into the case and passthrough works immediately with no crashes on demos at all So much time wasted thanks to a lovely dodgy ebay seller!!
  9. Ok thanks - I am coming to the same conclusion. Re no need for a bios file, is that nvidia driver in windows or elsewhere? Why is this out of curiosity? -- So I've installed your driver to try it out within a docker container - Plex transcoding appears to work initially (shows 'hw') but then freezes the moment i try to e.g. jump forward by 30 secs - no such issue in software transcoding. On PhoenixMiner the log reads - ignorantly, I would take this to mean the GPU memory is dud or such but interested to get your wisdom (I should be able to claim under ebay/paypal but obviously want to be as sure as possible) CUDA version: 11.0, CUDA runtime: 8.0 OpenCL driver version: 20.20-1089974-ubuntu-20.04 Available GPUs for mining: GPU1: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 (pcie 1), CUDA cap. 7.5, 3.8 GB VRAM, 14 CUs Unable to load NVML Eth: the pool list contains 1 pool (1 from command-line) Eth: primary pool: Starting GPU mining Eth: Connecting to ethash pool (proto: EthProxy) Eth: Connected to ethash pool ( Eth: New job #79db64b9 from; diff: 4295MH GPU1: Starting up...

  10. Ok thanks v much and the latter looks particularly impressive... Out of curiosity have you ever seen a symptom like I am experiencing whereby I have seemingly passed through my GPU (albeit UEFI boot only with CSM enabled) and the Windows desktop will operate fine but the moment I run a game or demo just that software freezes or crashes... I've tried a lot of things including new vm templates, diff driver versions, techpowerup and direct bios dump (albeit latter was 124KB vs 1MB for hex edited techpowerup!).. I guess my main paranoia is if I got sold a dud on eBay or not..
  11. Thanks - was hoping something even simpler like a retro 3d demo but can try one of these!
  12. Is there any docker container I can use after installing this nvidia driver to test my GPU is actually working (under moderate stress) The reason I ask is I bought a GTX 1650 off ebay (sold as fully working open box) and whilst I can install windows VM, nvidia drivers and the desktop shows fine, any time I run a game or directx/opengl demo, the software immediately freezes / crashes back to the windows desktop. I don't have another computer to try it on hence thought this could be a simple way to test without needing to worry if its a passthrough issue or not.. Thanks!
  13. Hi all, Just getting started with my Unraid Server.. thanks of course to SpaceInvaderOne for the tremendous efforts (and definitely deserving of a cut from LimeTech!) Everything has gone very well apart from a bizarre issue around the GPU passthrough. The GPU is a simple Zotac GTX 1650 Low Profile and whilst I can actually boot into windows and operate the desktop fine, the moment I look to run any sort of DirectX game/test the software immediately crashes back to the Windows desktop.. there is no error message whatsoever. I've tried switching from i441 to Q35 and a lot of different bios settings without luck and modified the XML to ensure the GFX+audio controllers are operating multi-function etc My final thought was the vBios - I've been primarily using one from TechPowerUp (with the hex editor change) but figured dumping my own would be worthwhile trying.. despite the VFIO bindings set in the GUI (6.9.2) this script kept throwing off the error others have been getting. So I figured I would try to actual turn off the VFIO bindings and low-and-behold the script apparently ran fine and dumped the rom.. However, the rom is showing only as 129KB versus 1MB for the TechPowerUp download - opening it up and it seems to start with the 'correct' text but appears to be ominously small in size!! Other question was if to switch from i441 to Q35 I could create a new VM template but still use the same vdisk? (I am using a 500MB vdisk on a 1GB unassigned device SSD). Thanks and any other ideas appreciated
  14. Hi - I am going adventurous and trying to build a somewhat powerful unraid server as a NAS, windows VM (blueiris) plus a bunch of dockers including plex. Main hardware is a short depth 4U rackmount case with intel i7 10700 and asus rog strix z490-h mobo. I am planning to shuck 4x WD Elements 18tb hard drives and install 2 SSDs for cache / windows VM. A couple of basic questions as I continue to prep the hardware purchases (not easy in these times!): 1) Will the shucked drives be SAS drives and consequently do I need to buy a specific PCI-E SAS controller for this motherboard? It seems odd to me this lack of support given SAS drives appear pretty common these days.. is there a generally recommended LSI card I should look for? 2) SSDs - I am assuming that it would be crazy not to have redundancy for the cache drive? This mobo only has 2 m.2 slots though so ideally I would get e.g. 2x 1 TB SSDs and then use it for a combination of cache drive and windows VM partition - however, I understand this is not generally recommended? Any advice on how to accommodate this optimally would be much appreciate. I will post more details as and when I gather the hardware successfully together.. Thanks for the advice!
