  1. for anyone else experiencing this 1 - you'll find folks running on linux versions - including SteamOS having this very issue. 2 - switching the client to Beta fixes the issue.
  2. Sorry about that Kizer! Work went nutso and this fell off my radar. I ended up powering down all networked electronics - and since rebooting each the gremlin hasn't poked up it's head. I'll toss a diagnostics up if it happens again.
  3. Howdy Folks, Since updating to 6.11.1 my Windows 10 VM's Steam Client is failing every 10-15 minutes. The Steam dump message is 'fatal stalled cross-thread pipe' Has anyone come across this & if so know how to remediate? Thanks!
  4. Howdy folks, Anytime my Windows Work machine is turned on - on same network - Im getting CONSTANT logging showing: Oct 15 14:59:27 Tower nginx: 2022/10/15 14:59:27 [error] 4424#4424: *2478717 limiting requests, excess: 20.122 by zone "authlimit", client: (Redacted Work PC IP number), server: , request: "PROPFIND /login HTTP/1.1", host: "tower" Any ideas on how to remediate this? Thanks!
  5. Most of my 4tb HGST drives are 'Manufacturer Recertified'. I figure if they pass a few preclears, they are well past early bathtub failure, and any gremlins should have reared up. I've had a couple fail that check.
  6. Howdy Folks - can anyone point me to a guide to increase my stable Windows 10 virtual disk size from 70 GB to 90 GB? I'm running out of C drive space. Thanks!
  7. I’d love to update from 6.10.3, however I also rely upon nerdpack to install the following: screen-4.8.0-x86_64-4.txz ncurses-terminfo-6.1.20191130-x86_64-1.txz tmux-3.2-x86_64-1.txz mcelog-161-x86_64-1.txz perl-5.32.0-x86_64-1.txz kbd-1.15.3-x86_64-2.txz I’ve downloaded from the following: screen-4.9.0-x86_64-1.txz ncurses-6.3-x86_64-1.txz tmux-3.2a-x86_64-1.txz mcelog-180-x86_64-1.txz perl-5.34.0-x86_64-1.txz And I've copied the top 4 txz files to flash's /boot/extra I have not yet downloaded kbd-1.15.3-x86_64-2.txz, as the latest version is only available for slack 14.2. Question 1a - Do I first Uninstall the 6 tools using NerdPack, and then Question 1b - ...Uninstall NerdPack, and then Question 1c - ...Reboot the server? Question 2 - Are all txz files in /extra automatically installed at time of boot? Question 3 - Do I need to determine the version of slackware Unraid is using & manually download the matching set from**VersionNumber**/slackware-x86_64/ every time I update unraid going forward? Question 4 - What happens if I boot into a newer version of Unraid with an older txz in /extra? Question 5 - How do I confirm what tools are already included in Unraid's OS? Looking at the forums I *think* perl is already included - hence the reason I've not yet copied it into /boot/extra. Thanks folks!
  8. JonathanM – I loved the Joke (and the history lesson). Squid – 1st, great books. 2nd, I was going to make a poor taste cat joke back to JonathanM, however this pretty much takes care of it. 3rd, pretty certain I need to get a hold of those dvds for a watch through. Nomisco – that’s really cool, hadn’t come across one of those before.
  9. binhex, thank you for this wonderful docker
  10. And today the above referenced disk has began throwing 197 & 198 smart errors. .
  11. Power on hours: 73799 (8y, 4m, 29d, 23h) ST4000DM000 usb pull 2012? Any drive that has reallocate sectors gets swapped. So far that is 1. I've had a few drives that didn't make it into my array as they failed within 3 preclear passes.
  12. Back in 2015 it worked with XEN pass-through - - - this is when limetech was just beginning to to allow VMs. I never tested it with KVM. . Tower2 has always been my 1x/month backup of Tower1. I update it before Tower1 and try new concepts on it first to minimize disruptions to Tower1. . Alas, I updated to faster/cooler cpu/mobo/ram a couple years ago and no longer have this to test.
  13. I have an 860 pro 1 Tb. 2 always on windows 10 VMs with numerous pass through devices. 1 workstation and 1 Steam stream for all gaming. I also have 1 always on docker. In addition to this I have 2 VM and 2 dockers that are turned on as needed. . I have zero issue with stability or speed. . This is all on a single cache drive. . Seperatly I store all the games on a user share in the array. This share is mounted within the VM. Unraid lets vms access shares within the server, not across the network. Games load at the speed of the mechanical hard drive.
  14. Thanks, didn't realize the script and gui was only triggered when the password was typed into the users change password interface. Makes sense though.
