  1. Awesome! Running it now, will advise if any further issues. Thanks for the quick response.
  2. Ok, got my server rebuilt, parity run, able to access the GUI and see the shares on my computer; however, I cannot access any of the subfolders in the shares due to a Network error. "Windows cannot access\\TOWER\Movies\xxxxx You do not have permission to access \\TOWER\Movies\xxxxx. Contact your network administrator to request access." All shares are set to public under SMB Security Settings. I also do not see //Tower under my Network in windows explorer. I moved from 4.7 (I think it was) to 6.6.7. So not sure if there's other settings I need to change. Both my PC and the unRaid server are on WORKGROUP. The server is set as the workgroup master; however, I do see that my netgear router is also a workgroup master. I have all the readyshare options disabled, and the USB port disabled on the router, but can't get the readyshare to shut off. Not sure if that is playing a role. It's only the subfolders I can't access. I can access \\TOWER\Movies, but not \\TOWER\Movies\xxxxx tower-diagnostics-20190412-0931.zip
  3. Thanks Darian, I found the iommu when googling the first error you mentioned in the prior responses. Either way it all works now and a reboot of the network and all computers has resolved the access to //tower.... Now I just can't access the shares that show up as I'm getting a permission error. Shares are set to public. So not sure on the issue now. Will start a separate topic on that. Thanks again!
  4. I recreated the unRaid USB without copying over ANY of the old share data etc., Enabled IOMMU in the Bios and that seems to have done the trick. I can get into my server using the assigned IP; but I cannot access it using //tower and I don't see tower in my network, so I'm unable to access the data. Thankfully, the parity drive is rebuilding, and all the data appears intact. Anyone able to assist in getting the server onto my W10 network? I may start a new topic later if no response and mark this one solved.
  5. Thanks, no idea at all about that. Maybe if someone can check the network cfg file, I tried it as yes to DHCP and then self assigning, I found another post and used that as a basis for it. Also, It shows on my extender as a wired device but with no IP.
  6. Okay, I've rebuilt my unRaid server; everything works, it boots up fine; however, I cannot access it via //tower, and when I try the unRaid GUI, the built in firefox browser just gives me a Unable to Connect screen on 'localhost' . What do you guys need to help me troubleshoot this? I've attached the diagnostics log. tower-diagnostics-20190411-0342.zip
  7. So, to add, the server would also be about 10' away from the main gaming rig with the KB/M wireless connections and a longer HDMI cable for the smaller monitor. I'm assuming I would need to run Windows in VM in order to run the game stream via capture card and also a video cam input. For Plex, I don't imagine running 4k transcoding for at least another 1-2 years, and won't have more then 2 concurrent streams (95% of the time probably just 1). Hopefully this helps narrow it down a bit. I've been looking at a lot of threads, and it seems that the builds are all over the place.
  8. So I've had issues booting back into my unRaid since attempting to move from 4.7 to 6.x, seems my MoBo no longer wants to boot from USB (only USB 2.0, flash drive is good). My current build is in my sig. I originally built unRaid for simply a NAS for movies and music. I want to now build a new unRaid system to allow for the same storage, video and music streaming to any device in the house, as well as video capture and game streaming to services like Twitch and Mixer (gaming would be on my gaming PC or XB1 and captured and streamed via the server.) I know I'll have to replace just about every component, so what would be the recommendations? I obviously don't need a heavy gaming CPU/GPU but still not sure what's needed in the media server side in terms of transcoding etc. If you guys need additional info, ask, and I'll reply as soon as I can. Trying to keep it reasonably priced as well.
  9. I'll take screenshots later tonight. The USB is no longer booting up. (stops after displaying the HDDs present during the early startup, and then hangs on the Verifying DMI Pool Data. If I manually select the USB to boot up from the F12 boot menu, the system just reboots when it gets to that same point rather than hanging. I have a gigabyte mobo, which is known to have USB boot issues, but I've been running this for 6+ years without a problem. I'll probably start a new thread focusing specifically on this problem later when I have a chance.
  10. And of course, attempted the upgrade, and can't boot up my USB drive. Get hung up on the DMI Pool Data hangup, when I manually select the USB to boot to, the system crashes and resets right at that point, doesn't matter if it's 4.7 or 6.6.x now. Sigh....
  11. Wow, that's impressive. Not sure I'd ever need to support other households, but that would be kind of cool. I'll read through those link for sure, and I'll be honest that I've never played around with VMs but I've always been interested. To support the other 'households', what type of internet connection do you have and what's the u/l speeds? The more I'm reading up, the more I realize the unRaid has come a LONG way since I was really into it back then. Shouldn't have slipped away and stopped keeping up.
  12. I currently run plex server on my high-end gaming PC, so transcoding is no issue with the specs on that. It just pulls from the unRaid as the storage. I just was hoping to simplify the setup, since I now need the server running, the gaming PC, and then whatever I'm streaming to, be it Roku, the XB1, etc. So I'll probably start with the new oS, can I jump directly from 4.7 to a clean install of 6.6.1 . I'll start budgeting to upgrade the Mobo and CPU(s) then, and memory.
  13. Is my current setup that bad there's no help!? LOL
  14. To add, I currently use it solely as a storage server for movies and my iTunes library. I plan on possibly looking into VMs and transcoding with Plex, however, I may use my gaming PC for the transcoding aspect, not quite sure how to run that whole setup yet.
