  1. I moved to an Adaptec 72405 more than a year ago, and though the initial setup was a bit of a pain, it's been working without issue since. Here's a thread documenting the situation. https://forums.unraid.net/topic/83895-please-explain-what-is-happening-with-my-adaptec-72405/?tab=comments#comment-777570
  2. Thanks again! This has been a minor irritant for me for years. Anytime I wanted to preclear an external drive, I would have to shut down my Windows VM, remove the usb 3.0 card from the xml, add a usb 2 controller and reboot. When done preclearing, I would re-add the USB3 controller. This card allows me to dedicate one USB3 controller (port) to my VM, and the remaining three are still available to Unraid! They all show up separate and easy to identify in their own IOMMU groups. Can't ask for better than that!! IOMMU group 24:[1912:0015] 04:00.0 USB controller: Renesas T
  3. Installed and working great in 6.8.3! Funny story. I'm testing out Tdarr to batch convert old .ts files to .mp4 files, and I've been running 'watch nvidia-smi' to keep an eye on my 1660ti when I thought to myself "It would be neat if I could see this in the dashboard". I went to the nvidia plugin support thread, started reading the last few comments, and someone linked to this plugin that does exactly what I was looking for! Thank you!! :)
  4. Awesome Docker! Thank you so much!!! One thing I noticed: While using an nvidia card to transcode, if I cancel all workers mid-transcode, the streams do not seem to get released until I stop the docker. If I let them finish, they release as expected. (watching using 'watch nvidia-smi' in Putty)
  5. Fantastic Plugin! Thank you so much for all your work! It was mentioned once before, but I didn't see the response (My apologies if it has already been brought up). I was wondering if support for passthrough disk backup is in the cards? I understand Snapshots wouldn't work (The vm will need to be shutdown), but it would be great if the disk could be backed up to an img using something like qemu-img convert... Thank you for your consideration!
  6. Thanks for posting! I just bought the v2 version of the Asus Hyper m2 nvme x4 Riser based on your recommendations, and I was wondering what vDisk bus you used when passing through your nvme drive (VirtIO, SCSI, or SATA)? I used SATA, but it doesn't seem to be quite as 'snappy' as I had hoped. Did you use SCSI like suggested above?
  7. Just to weigh in on this, I had to replace my controllers to get this working as well. Not because of conflicts, but simply because I did not have enough space for my new transcoding gpu :). I ended up getting a used Adaptec 72405 off eBay (I prefer an authentic Adaptec used server pull from the USA, rather than a new but more-than-likely knock off from China). I had some challenges getting it working, but it's been running now for a few days without issue. I've transferred a bunch of files, restarted the server at least 10 times and run several rebuilds and parity chec
  8. Hi! Thanks for the response! Very odd. You'd think if Adaptec calls it "HBA', it would behave properly. The PERC h310 was flashed to do straight IT mode. No raid. As for trying another controller for the 4 drives to see what happens, I haven't tried that, but perhaps I will. I suspect they'll operate as usual. As for the rest, the drives have all rebuilt, and everything seems to be fine. I didn't love the process to get here, but it seems like this could be a viable cheap 24 port alternative. I'll report back in a few weeks to close the loop.
  9. Hello, I needed to consolidate my 2 8-port controllers into 1 to free up a pci-e slot. After much research and deliberation, I ended up ordering an Adaptec 72405 from eBay. It has gotten mixed reviews on the forums, as far as functioning or not with Unraid, so I thought I'd roll the dice.... Mixed results! Controller appeared to install without issue. I flashed to the newest version of firmware, and switched the card to HBA mode. At first Unraid would not start, but I switched to a different PCI-e slot, and it came up without issue. All 15 drives attached to
  10. No gui mode and I have an onboard basic vga chip that is usually used by Unraid. It was never an issue with vanilla unraid, but something about the drivers inside unraid is making things more difficult. I tried again with my Radeon 460 and the Nvidia Unraid plugin, and it seems to be fine (last time I tried it caused the same issue, but it was late and I might have done something else wrong), so it's definitely something to do with the Nvidia card itself. I even tried an old 9500 that I dug up, but no luck with that either.
  11. Love this plugin! It made me go out and buy a new 1660 ti so I can transcode 4K movies to my devices. I have no issues getting the 1660 ti passed through to Emby. Everything works great on that front. The issue that I am having is that my VMs no longer see the video card I pass through to them. I have a Nvidia 710 that I use for my Windows 10 VM, and though Unraid shows it as an option when setting up the VM, when I pass it through and boot the VM, though UnRaid claims it is running, my screen stays black. If I remove the video card, I can access the VM through VNC without issue.
  12. I'm looking to get one of these and was wondering if you could expand a bit on the squealing :). The one I am looking at doesn't appear to have a fan, so not sure what would be doing the squealing!
  13. Hey Folks, Just wanted to share my findings after many hours of testing. I've been trying to passthrough an Nvidia GT 710 to Windows 10 on this board, and I could not get it to work. Everything appeared great, my monitor would show a green power light, but nothing would display. I tried all combinations of machine and bios (Q35, i440, OVMF, SeaBIOS), I tried passing through the rom, I made sure onboard was default in the bios, etc etc., all the tricks that could be found in the forums. I read lots about people having error 43 once loaded, but couldn't find a
  14. I noticed this as well. It showed precleared successful, but I had to X to close it. Unfortunately, it seems like the final step of tagging the drive as precleared is not occurring either, so Unraid is now spending 12 hours clearing it...
  15. I can't speak to your specific issue, but with my Radeon 460 in Windows 10, any of the current radeon drivers kill my VM. I am currently on Radeon 17.7 (July 2017), and it seems to be fine. I've learned to back up my VM image before trying to update the video drivers, because I do keep trying, hoping a current one will work...
