  1. Thanks CobraPL I went for another case that was significantly cheaper (Silverstone SG11) that had a tad more cooling space as well. I found a NH-L9x65 SE quite cheap because it was an open box return. I replaced the Fan with a NF-A9 which is already quite a bit better, maybe I should still consider 12mm... I'll see how the Temps go. I have it all set up already and TVHeadend works. I had to fiddle in the si2165 firmware manually (I do it by running a user script at Array Start that copies it from Many thanks for the BIOS tips, could you tell me what CPPC stands for? I'll check all those settings the next time I reboot the machine. And I'll have a look if I find a good USB stick, I picked up a Sandisk Ultra-Fit because it don't like sticks hanging out. I really admit now how useful it was that HP put a real USB on the Motherboard. Maybe I'll buy one of those Pin-Adapters but as the board doesn't even feature onboard USB 2.0 headers I might need an internal hub, those are very rare unfortunately I once paid 50$ for one. Thanks for letting me know about the USB 3.0 stick failing. I'll still install a Mellanox 4-LX card to have a full 25 GBit/s link to connect to MikroTik with 10GBit/s fallback. To me it seems the Intel X550 is vastly superior to the Aquantia Card I had in my MicroServer. Actually I went for 5800X it was only a few francs (325 vs 377) more expensive than the 3800X and I thought why not spend a little bit more for a bit more recent chip that tends to be either a tad faster or a tad more efficient. Concerning SATA-disabling: It is funny how the BIOS stops detecting some drives but in UnRAID I can use everything. But I am only using NVMe-sticks no SATA-M.2-SSDs. But other than that great Server I have here: Windows Server 2012 R2 boots inside a VM in like 3 Seconds and logging on takes not longer than a blink of an eye. It takes anything I throw at it.
  2. Maybe your Modem/Router won't allow coming back over external networks. Maybe you find an Option that is either called "NAT loopback" or "NAT hairpin" I think turning that on could solve your issue although I'm not sure if you really want that or you'd better access internally with an address that is not routed out and back in.
  3. Hi there I started using unRAID on my HP MicroServer Gen8 I picked up many years ago new on sale for 499$. It was the higher spec'd Xeon E1220L version but it is old by today's standard rocking two hyperthreaded 2.6 GHz Ivy-Bridge cores. I have home assistant, Pi-hole, an Nginx, DNS-Services and a Windows Server 2016 VM and here it is coming to a limit. I thought 8 cores might be just the right amount for my use cases (for like 3-4 VMs to play around, a dozen docker apps, some scripts for home automation, pfsense, unbound and LDAP services, light web hosting for internal webapps, elastic-search, you get the idea) as it would run this setup easily and have quite a bit of room to spare. I know the Gen10 Plus MicroServer is a quad-core but I don't like the external power brick and also I want something that I can tinker with later. And also I will change my ISP in April and will get 25 GBit/s so maybe good to get ready for PCIe 4.0 now So I thought I take my unused parts and the disks out of my MicroServer and build a rig like this: Motherboard AsRock X570D4U-2L2T seems decent and has some IPMI features and it also has two 10gig-NICs with Intel chips, thumbs up! Case Silverstone SST-ML04B Milo that should fit nicely above the MikroTik CCR2004-1G-12S+2XS 64 GB ECC unbuffered RAM 2x M.2 SSD as Cache drives Existing 3x4TB drives for array and parity Existing 750W PSU should be enough Now my question is, should I go for the Ryzen 7 3800X, PRO 4750G, 5700G, 5800X something completely different? To me it seems they're extremely close to each other in terms of price and clock speed, the Gs feature onboard video which I don't really need I suppose and as far as I understand it won't work with ECC memory right? But maybe someone can tell me something about PCIe 4.0 compatibility? The shop I looked at stated that only the 3800X and the 5800X are PCIe 4.0 compatible while the 4750G and 5700G ain't? But that seems very odd to me. I'm very grateful for any suggestions or ideas.
  4. This issues were so frustrating I stopped using SMB on unraid completely and switched to WinSCP and it works rock solid with no complaints. Can't recommend enough to new users if you don't plan to use your unraid as a NAS but just to configure your dockers, upload ISOs and such.
  5. EDIT: I fixed the problem by adding a custom variable called "CERTBOT_DOMAIN" and putting in my domain name without the "" part, then the server started and was reachable with a valid SSL cert! Yay! I hope I didn't break something and this is a small glitch in a chain of many tools??? --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi, I'm trying to get DNS-over-HTTPS for my dumb Android phones, it seems Google is too greedy to let you define your own DNS while still getting an address over DHCP, a thing that every Computer and even iOS devices can do... Well I installed Swag and I tried everything from Port Mapping with 81/444 as suggested and using another IP completely together with all Port Forwarding but it always fails the challenge. I assume that only problem is the curl doesn't have the correct address (see error message Can't resolve host below) but where do I have to change it to include the duckdns-Address? it tries to curl <DUCKDNSTOKEN>&txt=<CHALLENGETEXT> which does not have http://... in front. In the error message it shows the Token I tried putting in manually so I'm pretty sure it just curls wrongly! Can you tell me where I have to fix that? Here's the log output:
