  1. I spent a LOT of time a few years back sussing out a solution as a Windows VM without access to an ODD was then a deal breaker for my use. I found 2 workable solutions 1 – use a USB ODD drive and pass that through AFTER booting the VM if speed is of little concern 2 – Blacklist a PCIe card and pass the PCIe SATA card through. Note that you must either flash the PCIe card for ODD (aka IDE mode) use or select a card that works natively with ODD. Because of using the Asmedia ASM1062 chipset - StarTech’s 2 Port PCI Express SATA 6 Gbps eSATA Controller Card - Works out of the box. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00952N2DQ Under flash you can blacklist the device via: label unRAID OS menu default kernel /bzimage append iommu=pt vfio-pci.ids=1b21:0612 initrd=/bzroot Where vfio-pci.ids=(my [id] info from system devices) IOMMU group 34 [1b21:1182] 0a:03.0 PCI bridge: ASMedia Technology Inc. Device 1182 [1b21:0612] 0b:00.0 SATA controller: ASMedia Technology Inc. ASM1062 Serial ATA Controller (rev 02)
  2. Main server upgrade appears good. -Windows 10 VM with 1080 for steam streaming of owned games. -Windows 10 VM with 1060, odd sata card, USB card for software suite use. -Windows 7 VM vnc for legacy software use. -crashplan docker -Makemkv Docker with USB odd -Dual parity -Media links from osmc for owned media consumption -Pre-Clear plugin
  3. Sub'd - thank you greatly. This will come in handy when a system update breaks the gui plugin.
  4. Thanks saarg! The other makemkv does not allow me to consistently pass through the ODD. This RDP one, however, works great.
  5. @Djoss - thanks for keeping this most useful docker up-to-date mate!
  6. I do the same at my home. I eventually added parity to the secondary backup server - not because it was required, but because I desired some faulure tolerance on the backup copies.
  7. I'd run Pre-Clear on the drives to ensure they are still good, but seams perfectly good (free?) way to setup local backups. Perhaps via an rsync users script?
  8. I'm not having the restore issue. Have you tried from a different network or computer?
  9. Awesome, thanks again. The Gui polish is nice BTW
  10. good day @limetech Given that under my Flash/Syslinux config I have: append iommu=pt vfio-pci.ids=1b21:0612,1b21:1242 isolcpus=2-4,8-10 initrd=/bzroot *Question 1* Do I need to remove the vfio-pic from the Flash/Syslinxu and instead use the new flashconfig/vfio-pci.cfg BIND=0c:03.0 0d:00.0 03:00.0 Where IOMMU Group 39 [1b21:1182] 0c:03.0 PCI bridge: ASMedia Technology Inc. Device 1182 Group 39 [1b21:0612] 0d:00.0 SATA controller: ASMedia Technology Inc. ASM1062 Serial ATA Controller group 31 [1b21:1242] 03:00.0 USB controller: ASMedia Technology Inc. ASM1142 USB 3.1 Host Controller *Question 2* Should my 2 GPUs need to be added to this as well? group 32 [10de:1c02] 04:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP106 [GeForce GTX 1060 3GB] group 32 [10de:10f1] 04:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation GP106 High Definition Audio Controller group 30 [10de:1b80] 02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP104 [GeForce GTX 1080] group 30 [10de:10f0] 02:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation GP104 High Definition Audio Controller BIND=0c:03.0 0d:00.0 03:00.0 04:00.0 04:00.1 02:00.0 02:00.1 *Question 3* Should I remove isolcpus=2-4,8-10 given that I have pinning selected via the GUI Thanks! BTW, initial update looks VERY good Supermicro X10SRA-F Windows 10 VM with 1080 gpu and BT adapater passed through for SteamLink Streaming Windows 10 VM with 1060 gpu, usb adapter, ODD sata controller passed through for production Crashplan docker
  11. Hello fine folks - looks like cod42 is back to nagging about the latest update being available... cheers
  12. @saarg I have the /UNRAID path set to mnt/user/ShareName/Folder & the program outputs videos wonderfully to thus location. The only 'minor' issue is that when the container is started, from within the container, for each new ODD the default output folder is within the container itself and I must change this to /UNRAID if I want access to the MKV (and not blow up my Docker image space).
