  1. just take link, open up a new tab and put it in. for whatever reason it will not work if you try to do it directly from within the forum
  2. i was on vacation and sadly this mariadb docker auto upgraded (due to CA) and since the change to alpine (and maria 10.5) now my kodi instances randomly become unhappy with the db launching kodi results in it crashing because it cant get data from the db (it connects just errors on things), sample: 2021-09-01 09:58:50.454 T:24263 INFO <general>: Starting Kodi (19.1 (19.1.0) Git:20210508-85e05228b4).

  3. Something went wrong. Please try again. Error code: EX1264 is what i get when i try to use the link in the first post if you just click on it. if you copy the link then open up a new tab and paste it in, the page actually comes up
  4. for those that use password managers, one failed login is too many. but anyways fail2ban should be part of unraid and can be configured to meet the users need. just unraid needs to log failures in a sensible way that fail2ban can parse out.
  5. per your log you are running unraid-6.9.0-rc1 you might be better off asking in the pre-release section for beta releases in case its something relevant to that. but from a quick glance at your logs the noisy thing I see is 'speedtest' running producing several lines each time. but still your logs arent that full? i suspect you actually meant to create a post asking about why your win vm is running out of memory?:
  6. I have my unraid (v 6.8.3) box connected to UPS and set to email me if power outages happen. We just had a few quick blips (off/on) which then of course triggered unraid to send multiple notifications in quick succession which triggered sender thread limit. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/troubleshoot/send-emails/smtp-submission-improvements This resulted me not getting the final power back up notification.

  7. I have the LSI SAS 9207-8i - which if you compare the others it does pcie 3.0 and x8, so no bottle neck for mechanical drives. (most others are pcie 2.0) Depending on what firmware comes with the card, you may have to flash it into IT mode (so it doesnt try to do RAID), but pretty simple to do if you've ever updated a bios/firmware for anything before. reddit post from back in the day that gave a decent overview of what was out there: and about power usage, idling with a few dockers per the UPS module it shows the system is using 69 watts.
  8. Thanks, It's been a really long time since I've had a non mounted drive without the UD plugin installed. Made it a bit confusing because of all the talk in the 6.9 rc1 talk about removing UD and I was fearful that something was still left around.
  9. Also while on 6.9.0-rc1, Hooked the 2.5G motherboard port to my 2.5G switch (just quick test to see what unraid nego the RTL8125 port as) and sure confirm it does 2.5G. Testing on 6.8.3 it looks like it will do 2.5G there as well. So weekend project now to replace switch then iperf
  10. loaded up 6.9 rc1, can confirm I get temps now, no fans though doing sensors-detect then loading what it suggest, I can see: # sensors k10temp-pci-00c3 Adapter: PCI adapter Vcore: 913.00 mV Vsoc: 1.09 V Tctl: +39.8°C CPU Temp: +39.8°C MB Temp: +32.8°C Icore: 0.00 A Isoc: 7.50 A nvme-pci-0300 Adapter: PCI adapter Composite: +31.9°C (low = -273.1°C, high = +84.8°C) (crit = +84.8°C) Sensor 1: +31.9°C (low = -273.1°C, high = +65261.8°C) Sensor 2: +35.9°C (low = -273.1°C, high = +65261.8°C)
  11. I'm wanting to remove UD so I can test out 6.9 RC1. I'm on 6.8.3, I removed UD + UD Extra. Restarted unraid. I confirmed no install on the startup but I still have the "Unassigned Disk" tab on the main unraid page. Can see below, it shows the tab and a drive but cant really do much with it.. I wold have expected the tab to not be there anymore?
  12. doesnt unraid by default enable 'domain' ?
  13. ASUS X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Hero with a Ryzen 3700X running unraid 6.8.3 installed perl (perl-5.32.0-x86_64-1.txz) with nerdpack then installed dynamix system temps. detect returns "k10temp nct6775" and clicked load drivers. there are no fan or temp options for any of the drop downs. Logs show: Dec 6 21:25:43 husky kernel: nct6775: Found NCT6796D or compatible chip at 0x2e:0x290 Dec 6 21:25:43 husky kernel: ACPI Warning: SystemIO range 0x0000000000000295-0x0000000000000296 conflicts with OpRegion 0x0000000000000290-0x0000000000000299 (\AMW0.SHWM) (20180810/utaddress-204) Dec 6 21:25:43 husky kernel: ACPI: If an ACPI driver is available for this device, you should use it instead of the native driver Dec 6 21:25:48 husky kernel: i2c /dev entries driver sshing into the box, sensors shows: # sensors No sensors found! Make sure you loaded all the kernel drivers you need. Try sensors-detect to find out which these are. looking around online, it looks like ryzen 3000 needs newer kernel than what 6.8.3 has.. might want to add verbiage to the user so they know the plugin itself isnt at fault and they need to use newer unraid/wait.
  14. loaded up perl and Dynamix System Temp, it detected "k10temp nct6775" but not showing any temp probes. Looking around it looks like ryzen 3000 requires newer kernel than what comes with 6.8.3 to get stuff to detect properly. I do not want to run 6.9.x betas.. so I'll come back to this once I can test with my backup unraid flash and no drives connected.
  15. have a free usb port (just do usb 3.0 or anything with type c so you can actually get 1G speeds)? https://www.amazon.com/UGREEN-Ethernet-1000Mbps-Nintendo-Chromebook/dp/B00LLUEJFU/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=UGREEN+Ethernet+Adapter+Gigabit+Network+to+USB&qid=1607066618&sr=8-2 https://www.amazon.com/UGREEN-Ethernet-Thunderbolt-Converter-Chromebook/dp/B082K62S48/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=UGREEN+Ethernet+Adapter+Gigabit+Network+to+USB&qid=1607066559&sr=8-3 per release notes, chipset support was added in 6.0-beta11g and others here have noted using them just fine. but anyways im sure there are plenty of other options as well
  16. unless you need other things in 6.9.x, why not just run 6.8.3 and get a cheapo nic that IS supported and use that until 6.9.x is good? I asked on the 6.8.3 thread but i'll ask here too.. is there any chance of a 6.8.4 to be released that has the 1 MiB alignment stuff included? as I am also in that boat that I dont want to go to 6.9.x early to get the feature.
  17. I use --restart="on-failure" for my kodi docker. If I stop the docker manually via the unraid gui it stops cleanly. If CA backup tries to stop the docker it shuts down but then restarts as it views it as a failure... why this is the case I'm not sure. It seems like a bug with CA backup. So basically I stopped using CA backup automatically and just go stop the dockers manually then fire off a manual CA backup. Not a great solution I know.
  18. Went ahead and picked up the ASUS X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Hero Updated to latest bios 11/24/2020 (version 2702). Enabled SVM. Installed nvme m.2 drive in bottom slot (group 21), LSI card in bottom x16 (group 25) and video in x1 slot (group 23). Moved drives over to new mobo and all came up without any effort with 6.8.3.

  19. @limetech any chance there will be a 6.8.4 released with the 1 MiB alignment stuff? for those that dont want to jump to a beta to get the support?
  20. The mellanox solution does not work for me (the server and nas are not in the same room) but it is something I've thought about. Cat7 is already pre-wired in the house which is why I stubbornly wanted to utilize that route instead. ~$100 - ASUS XG-C100C 10G Network Adapter PCI-E x4 Card with Single RJ-45 Port -- x4 card, so would eat up PCIe larger slot but deff works with unraid ~$60 - ASUS PCE-C2500 2.5G Base-T PCIe x1 Card (2.5G/1G/100Mbps) with Single RJ45 Port -- x1 card, so much more flexibility but not sure of unraid support due to how new it is $20 - Rosewill RC-20001 2.5GBASE-T PCIe x1 Card (supposedly they use Realtek 8125) -- per this thread, looks like realtek 8125 only does 1G with unraid driver:
  21. I had a whole blurp about buying the addon card rather than trying to get everything natively since it makes the motherboard options limited and at a higher price (especially for 10GbE). Right now there has been a run on X570 boards so its even harder to find decently priced options with 1G+ nics. I had eyed Aquantia stuff for awhile but never bit due to lack of consumer switches that were decently priced. Then as some stuff came out then they got bought out by Marvell and the stand alone cards pretty much dried up (asus still has their one, ~$100). Then you saw the blip of 10GbE included on motherboards for a season then everyone stopped due to lack of adoption and higher price. Now you only see the 10GbE included on the content creator/ultra prem gaming boards that are $$$.
  22. Tl;DR; Mental notes for my quest to figure out what I wanted to build and why. Figured others may benefit from my thought vomit. Thoughts only valid upto Nov 2020. As I'm sure things will change with newer chipsets/cpus. Quick history: I started using unraid 7+ years ago back before vm/docker/dual nic/etc were a thing. I've been wanting to upgrade my aging setup for a bit now as its resources are a limiting factor to doing vm or certain plugins. My setup: Nexus Prominent 9 w/ 3x Norco SS-500 (5in3 bays) with Intel i3-3220, 4G ram, and two sas expanders. A SuperMicro AOC-SASLP-MV8 (PCIe x4) that only does 3.0Gbps and LSI SAS 9207-8i (PCIe 3.0 x8). Right now I have 12 drives (10 data, 1 parity, 1 cache ssd). I had hope to be at 10G by now but with the current state of things it is still too pricey/ , 2.5G is the growing trend where lots of things are going after Aquantia got bought. 10GbE is still too pricey/loud to justify being an early adopter at this moment. I just picked up QNAP's fanless+unmanaged 5x 2.5 GbE switch (~100$) // https://www.qnap.com/en-us/product/qsw-1105-5t The plan is to drop the MV8 and only use the LSI expander (so 8 drives there) but the rest need to be handled by the mobo (~6). I picked up a 1TB nvme drive (970 Evo Plus) that was on sale for BF. So will need to do at least one M.2. Cost vs Heat, I figure a 65W TDP 8 core, 16 thread cpus like Ryzen 3700X (3.6GHz) or Intel i7-10700 (2.9GHz) would be perfect. https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare/AMD-Ryzen-7-3700X-vs-Intel-Core-i7-10700/3485vs3747 This would give me enough cores for flexibility, future growth. Either case would be a big jump from my aging Intel i3 2C4T cpu. * Ryzen 5 5600X (6C12T) at 65W would be fine too.. but $ and out of stock. So I drop that idea plus there should* be some decent deals for the holidays as everyone wants to clear out the older cpus. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Intel vs AMD Trying to decide which is better means a lot of variables have to be considered. Even with so many variants of motherboards this generation they are pricery than ever (there is motherboards over $1,000!). Looking at the $250-350 range is 'mid range' which is a bit crazy but is the norm and something that comes with trying to use the latest and greatest chipsets with features that are aimed towards content creators/gamers. BTW, you can put a PCIe x1 card (or x4 or x8) card in a PCIe x16 slot. They work fine. The lane count is automatically negotiated during device initialization, which can take lanes away from other slots if they are shared. igpu / apu: The perk of going with Intel is that you get igpu and save having to waste a PCIe slot. However, you can pick up a silent Zotac GT710 for ~$50 to toss in an PCIe x1 slot and save those x16/x8 slots for things that actually need the bandwidth. https://www.zotac.com/us/product/graphics_card/geforce®-gt-710-1gb-pcie-x-1 sata ports: Having lots of SATA + M.2 is problem with Intel or older AMD because SATA ports get disabled or PCIe slots slowed/disabled due to limited PCIe lanes. If going Intel you have to look at Comet Lake (LGA 1200), q470/z490 or w480 (xenon). If going AMD you want to focus on x570. Avoid B550 due to bad iommu grouping and reduced lanes. nics: 2.5GbE and the drama - https://wccftech.com/intel-400-series-chipsets-z490-i225-v-network-controller-issue-fix-2h-2020/ Intel's i225 "Foxville" family of 2.5 Gbps wired Ethernet controllers have a design flaw that affects performance. There is a variance in the inter-packet gap (IPG), the interval between data packets transmitted on the physical layer. This variance can cause packet loss, resulting in reduced throughput (i.e. a performance loss). The 'fix' is an updated driver/firmware that forces the NIC to use 1G to prevent the problem. Overall Intel z490 and intel own 2.5G nic is to be avoided until the fixed hardware comes in Rocket Lake. This is why you see mobo's switched from Intel to Realtek/Dragon/Marvell (Aquantia) for 2.5G on newer boards. memory: Intel is a bit behind from supporting higher clocks natively but most ram have intel+amd profiles and play nice. Could go the route of doing 2x16GB to start off then add two more later.. but 2x32GB is not that badly priced. - G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 64GB (2 x 32GB) 288-Pin DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) - F4-3600C18D-64GVK --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Intel: Looking for Z490 boards that do 2.5GbE that is not provided by Intels's own and could do M.2 with minimal SATA being affected was tedious. If the board does 3x M.2 then there is usually you can get away with one NVMe drive without impact. But most have the common order that if you put a M.2 in the 2nd slot then it disables one SATA and if you do the 3rd slot then it takes away two SATA ports. So that 6 onboard SATA could be much less. While I could find many Intel based motherboards for cheaper than AMD equals, the CPU not only costed more but usually came with higher TDP or less core count. ASUS Z490 ROG MAXIMUS XII HERO (WI-FI) PCIe: 2 x PCIe 3.0 x16 (x16 or dual x8) 1 x PCIe 3.0 x16 (x4 mode) * 3 x PCIe 3.0 x1 Networking: Intel I219-V 1Gb Ethernet Marvell AQtion AQC111C 5Gb Ethernet (100M/1G/2.5G/5G) SATA: 6 x SATA 6Gb/s 3x M.2 You lose one sata if m.2_1 is used. * You lose one pcie slot if m2._2 is used at x2 or just reduced speed if m2 is at x1. So if only one nvme drive, you can use m.2_3 and not take a hit anywhere else. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- AMD: While looking around it became clear that if I was going to do 2.5GbE with 8 SATA ports that really only leaves Asus and AsRock. For the price, ASUS looks like the better offering and it these two boards are my current picks: ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming > One extra x1 PCIe 4.0 slot (that is shared with PCIe x16_3), cheaper. PCIe: 2 x PCIe 4.0 x16 (x16 or dual x8) 1 x PCIe 4.0 x16 (supports x4) * 2 x PCIe 4.0 x1 * The PCIeX16_3 slot shares bandwidth with PCIeX1_2. Networking: Intel® I211-AT Realtek® RTL8125-CG (2.5G) SATA: 8 x SATA 6Gb/s 2x M.2 or ASUS X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Hero > Better for overclocking and more usb.. not worth the extra money for me. But have seen some deals. PCIe: 2 x PCIe 4.0 x16 (x16 or dual x8) 1 x PCIe 4.0 x16 (supports x4) * 1 x PCIe 4.0 x1 Networking: Intel® I211-AT Realtek® RTL8125-CG (2.5G) SATA: 8 x SATA 6Gb/s 2x M.2 Looking at other motherboards, there are some other ones but cost more money than ASUS's: MSI X570 * - 4 sata or limited expansion slots.. no good options at all. ASRock X570 Aqua - has everything in the world, which explains the price tag. ASRock X570 Creator - has Aquantia 10GbE + Intel Gigabit, 8 sata, 3 PCIe 4.0 x16, 3 PCIe 2.0 x1. Gigabyte X570 AORUS MASTER (rev 1.2) - has Realtek 2.5G, only 6 sata Gigabyte X570 AORUS XTREME (rev 1.1) - has Aquantia 10GbE + Intel Gigabit, only 6 sata, no x1 PCIe, 3x M.2.. but lots more money.
  23. sharing here as I was looking around at possibly doing new intel build with latest chipset and saw reports of packetloss with 2.5G nic: https://thinkcomputers.org/intel-foxville-2-5gb-nic-flaw-advisory-circulated/
  24. I do bridge as i want stuff isolated and there are minimal ports i need to access. BTW you do need to have a mysql/mariadb docker so kodi can store data. For the kodi-headless docker, these are my settings (advanced view):
  25. I'm planning on doing a new amd build and wanted to get some benefit out of my 2.5G switch and was hoping that unraid would support it by now. Can someone confirm if unraid 6.9.x in fact does do 2.5G with one of these nic's: Realtek RTL8125-CG (from ASUS CROSSHAIR VIII HERO) Dragon RTL8125AG (from ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming X)
