  1. You are right. Just now, I did a test and confirmed that this workaround is not needed for Marvell 88SX6081 8 port SATA PCI-X card.
  2. I have made it. This is my network.cfg: # Generated settings: IFNAME[0]="eth0" DHCP_KEEPRESOLV="yes" DNS_SERVER1="" DHCP6_KEEPRESOLV="yes" PROTOCOL[0]="ipv4" USE_DHCP[0]="no" IPADDR[0]="" NETMASK[0]="" GATEWAY[0]="" USE_DHCP6[0]="no" IFNAME[1]="eth1" PROTOCOL[1]="ipv4" USE_DHCP[1]="no" IPADDR[1]="" NETMASK[1]="" GATEWAY[1]="" SYSNICS="2" Some of my findings while trying: 1. unRAID will generate a "network-rules.cfg" to set sequence of eth0, eth1, ... It can be altered either through WebUI or modifying the cfg file. 2. After applying change to Network Settings, connection will be lost. And a reboot is required. Shutdown unRAID first, check network.cfg is correct and then restart unRAID.
  3. It's for my my specific network configuration needs. I can explain the details, but it may be tedious. So, please forgive me not explaining why. In essential, the 2 NICs are connecting to different subnets, so they needs different IP address. For the time being, I need to set 2 distinct static IP address for 2 NICs on one PC by editing network.cfg, not WebUI.
  4. I have probelm setting 2 NICs using WebUI, so I have to edit /config/network.cfg using NotePad++. Now, my network.cfg is: #Static IP USE_DHCP=no IPADDR= NETMASK= GATEWAY= DNS_SERVER1= DNS_SERVER2= DNS_SERVER3= It works fine for onboard GBe NIC. Now I am adding a 2.5GBe NIC and I want to set another static IP for 2.5GBe NIC. What modifications are needed?
  5. I was facing a problem that /boot not mounted. I solved it but I can't explain why. I am not sure if your problem is the same with mine. If you want to check it, you can look if /boot is mounted by issuing command "mount" or "cd /boot" to see if directories and files reside in /boot. If /boot is mounted, then we have different problems. I posted my experience in this thread:
  6. I had a similar problem, too. The solution that worked for me is tricky. Here is the detail of what I have done. FYI. I have a SanDisk Cruzer Micro 2GB UsbStick running unRAID 6.9.2 on Asus P7P55D-E LX machine. CSM boot, UEFI. turned off. Nothing wrong. Then I tried to use the same UsbStick on Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H machine. This old machine only has BIOS. I can boot to unRAID, both command UI and Graphic UI, but I can't connect to unRAID WUI either from localhost or remte PC. At first, I thought it was the problem of NIC, maybe driver or DHCP. I tried to fix it but failed. In this thread, the solution suggested seems to be related with BIOS settings, but that does not work for me. Then I found the path "/boot" was not mounted on my unRAID machine. It's the real cause of the problem. I have a Kingston DataTreveler 32GB UsbStick. I tried to use "Unraid.USB.Creator.Win32-1.6.exe" to create unRAID on the UsBStick, but the process stuck at syncing files, never finished. I had to close the application manually. Finally, I used Rufus to dump the img (vhd) from SanDisk Cruzer Micro 2GB UsbStick, and wrote the img to Kingston DataTreveler 32GB UsbStick. The partition is 2GB only, left 28GB around unoccupied. This time, Kingston DataTreveler 32GB UsbStick works on Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H machine, and /boot is mounted. Everything works fine, for now. I can't explain why /boot is not mounted with SanDisk Cruzer Micro 2GB UsbStick, while same data on Kingston DataTreveler 32GB UsbStick just work on the same Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H machine. If anyone has an explanation, please share. Thanks.
  7. Hi, I am trying unRAID 6.9.2. I have a Marvell 88SX6081 8 port SATA PCI-X card on a Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H motherboard. I made the modification to /syslinux/syslinux.conf as Community Developer saarg's post. Now, I have 3 HDD. 2 on SATA on motherboard, 1 on Marvell card. They seems working fine. Lucky for me to see the thread before pluging an HDD to Marvell card, so I don't know if Marvell card still work without the modification to /syslinux/syslinux.conf. Just post to tell it's working and thank you.
