  1. I tried every USB port and they all do the same thing, they allow the keyboard to work for things like BIOS settings and using it to select from the Unraid boot menu but once the Unraid login screen comes up the key board does not respond in any of the ports. Safe GUI did exactly the same.
  2. I actually tried that but although the USB keyboard works when I get to the Unraid login the keyboard does not seem to work.
  3. We had strong thunderstorm last night and it looks like the ethernet port on my Unraid server may have died (no lights at all). Unraid does seem to boot up normally as seen on the server monitor but the GUI is not available because the server is not on the network. I can move the network cable to the spare ethernet port and the lights come right up but I think the Unraid configuration is looking ONLY at port #1 and is set to not use the spare port. Since I can't get to the GUI there is no way to modify the network settings that I'm aware of, anyone have any ideas...?
  4. When I try to upload the diagnostic file I get a forum error saying I can only upload 25 files
  5. Over the last several weeks my Unraid server has had an issue where the CPU fan with go into turbo (loud) mode every 60-120 seconds and run at high speed for between 30 and 90 seconds at which point it will go silent again but will soon repeat. My CPU fan is a cooler master with 4 leads which means it's capable of IPMI control which I'm guessing is what's going on here. I however discovered that if I close down my PLEX docker the crazy fan stuff just stops but if I turn the PLEX back on the fan crazy stuff kicks back off again. I keep the PLEX docker updated and frankly it works fine but it
  6. Hello everyone, have not been here in a long time as my last Unraid build has been running very well but I do have an odd issue I wonder if anyone has seen or has ideas what may be causing this. My server is based on a Supermicro X10SL-F motherboard with a Xeon E3-1231 running at 3.4GHz, 32 GB ECC memory, 8 total spinning drives all 4 or 8 GB and Iron Wolf NAS drives. I have a single Windows 10 VM using the last 2 sets of cores (2/6 and 3/7) the other cores are fair game for everything else. Also running a Plex Server, OpenVPN and DelugeVPN all in docker containers. Under normal condition
  7. I have a Windows 10 VM that I want to adjust the original vdisk.img size down. I originally set it to 500G but that's way too large so I would like to drop it down to about 200G, can I do that and how. I've search here but I always find the search function of this board to be less that functional.
  8. I have a Windows 10 VM running on a physical disk mounted inside the UnRaid array, this VM is running BlueIris NVR software and I don't find performance to be acceptable. I just purchased an SSD that I plan to run the VM on and it will NOT be part of the array. What would be the steps to simply move this production VM from it's current location over to this new SSD...? Many Thanks for the assistance.
  9. Well for the normal media streaming stuff one connection has been fine but I do have a Windows 10 VM running Blue Iris NVR software which has 8 3MP camera's attached as well as streaming those camera's out to 3-4 Imperihome clients. That all creates a significant amount of network traffic which seems to be pushing the limits of the single connection.
  10. Hey guys, I have two Gigabit ethernet ports on my Supermicro motherboard but never bothered to use the 2nd one as I had no spare wired ports on my switch. I just upgraded my switch and now have a spare port so my question to the guru's is should I bother attempting to bond the two ports...? If yes can someone link me to instructions on how to set it up correctly.
  11. I should also add that I'm NOT running this VM on an SSD but within the normal array. The reason is my SSD which was planned for the BI VM is only a 256GB and that turned out to be a little too small to hold that VM, a couple of other VM's I run and the normal UNRAID stuff and Docker stuff that folks run on the SSD. So I started the BI VM on SSD and once I moved it over to the array I noticed zero difference in performance.
  12. Yes, I'm running Blue Iris in a Windows 10 VM with very good results. My system is based on the SuperMicro MBD-X10SLC7 Motherboard and the Xeon E3-1231 with 32 Gigs of RAM. I run 8 camera's most are 1080p Hikvision but 3 are Amcrest 3k camera's. I run BI as a service (so it restarts itself) and I do notice that it does crash about once every two weeks but some troubleshooting has proven that when it crashes it's due to the 3 Android tablets running Imperihome with many camera's on the displays and the constant calls to BI for re-fresh. Since it re-starts itself this is not really an issue f
  13. Can I change the name of an active and running VM without it re-installing the OS...? I have two Windows 10 VM's, one was production and one was a test bed only. Due to some issues these have now swapped so the one that I have called "Windows 10 Test" is now my production VM. Not a huge deal but I would like to change the names if I can do that without it re-building the OS.
  14. I have a 250GB SSD as my cache drive, I use it for fast writes on common user shares and storage locations for a couple of Windows VM's I have running. I originally ordered a 2nd SSD with the intent to create a pool but I'm 2nd guessing that original decision. Here's why... The only data that a route thru the cache are media (Movies and TVShows) so that I can take advantage of the speed. Loosing a Movie would not be a major concern. I back up my VM's daily so should the SSD have issues recovery would be simple. With those two points in consideration the advantage
