  1. Not that this will help your current situation but in upcoming unRAID 6.6 I'm compressing the Docker binaries that are stored in bzroot and this will end up shaving off about 100MB of RAM needed for the root ram filesystem.  Might help those that are using a small amount of ram.

  2. I can confirm the new AMD microcode files from 5/20/18 are currently not in any unRAID releases.  Slackware hasn't picked them up in their kernel-firmware package yet which is what we use to update the unRAID distro.  They last did that on 5/7/18.


    We're in the midst of upgrading the kernel to 4.16 and tons of other packages for unRAID 6.6.0-rcX... We'll include a new kernel-firmware in that release as soon as it's available.

  3. No need to go back to RC5.  I went ahead and made the ports='15' change to upcoming RC7 so it can handle many more devices going forward.  I'm going to mark this as Solved but feel free to open another ticket if that issue appears in RC7+.

  4. I'm still baffled why it worked in RC6 and not in a previous version, without the XML change.  Only way you should have gotten that 'No free USB ports' error would be to hot-attach 5 devices since the default is 4 ports on the usb controller.  Is it possible you had at least 3 usb devices already assigned to the VM (+1 for the usb tablet that gets auto assigned) and you tried to hot-attach a 5th usb device?

    usb 3 = blue 


    Try this:  Stop the VM, Edit the VM, toggle from 'Form View' to 'XML View' near the top-right.  Look for the following XML:

    <controller type='usb' index='0' model='qemu-xhci'>


    And add in the  ports='15'  attribute, like so:

    <controller type='usb' index='0' model='qemu-xhci' ports='15'>


    Your model may be 'nec-xhci' or 'qemu-xhci', but adding the ports attribute is all that matters.  Save that, Start the VM and try to hot-attach a usb.
