  1. Thank you for confirming! I came here to verify that the host-passthrough mode works before I upgrade to 6.9. I have been holding back upgrading from 6.7.2 to 6.8.3 just for this reason.
  2. Hi all - I got my self into predicament here. I have a pfSense VM running inside unRAID. I was trying to create muti VPN WAN using nguvu excellent guide here. I believe he is using AirVPN where as I am using Private Internet Access (PIA) as my VPN service provider, other than that everything else should be the same. To get to the point, after making the config changes and rebooting, pfSense VM does not boot up. Now, I can not connect to pfSense nor unRAID using the UI. How do I get my old config file to pfSense VM and boot is up? Thanks, Sagun
  3. OK, thanks, I'll keep an eye on the log, and if the error persists I will change the SATA cable for the drive.
  4. Hello All - This morning, while checking unRAID, there was a warning that it had detected UDMA CRC error. Upon checking the log I saw several warnings, screenshot of the log is attached. Should I just ignore this error, or should I do something about it? Thanks, Sagun
  5. + 1 Please add docker-compose
  6. Thanks that's good to hear! I will post again after I get all the components and finish the build (hopefully very soon).
  7. You got me curious, I went to the SuperMicro's website and search for the motherboard. It just lists one RAM they tested with. The Kingston ValueRAM 32GB Kit isn't one of them. I went to and added all of my components, according to it, my parts should work together. Can anyone else suggest other methods to verify that the RAM and motherboard will work together before I buy them?
  8. Thanks for the information! I am seriously thinking about getting them soon.
  9. I think, I have coalesced a list of components I want, can someone please verify they play in harmony with unRAID? Intel Xeon E3-1245 V5 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor Supermicro MBD-X11SSM-F-O Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard Kingston ValueRAM 32GB Kit (2x16GB) 2133MHz DDR4 ECC CL15 DIMM 2Rx8 Desktop Memory (KVR21E15D8K2/32) Corsair - RM 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply Thank you!
  10. Understood. For some unexplained reason, I was being adamant on using IOMMU passthrough for a VM. Whereas, I can do exactly what I want with a remote connection to the VM (example using RDP or VNC). Thanks for all your help!
  11. So, you are not using IOMMU to passthrough GPU or USB peripherals to a VM?
  12. How difficult was it to setup a VM with peripheral attached (example monitor, keyboard, etc)? I am thinking of upgrading to following components: Ryzen 7 1700 (do you have a recommendation for an external GPU, a decent entry point GPU will do) Asus Strix X370-F Gaming Motherboard (do you recommend another motherboard?) Corsair LPX-3200 32GB (2x16GB in red probably) Corsair RM750 PSU
  13. Thank you for the detailed list of components. Is there is a reason you choose Ryzen R5 instead of R7? If I go the Ryzen R7 route will the Asus Strix X370-F motherboard handle it? I like your PSU, I will need to upgrade mine as well. I'll probably end up using what you have.
  14. Did you do anything special in unRAID to get the Ryzen to work, or does it work out of the box? I was reluctant in considering Ryzen because of the fact its new, and the issues about unRAID freezing. But, from your experience sounds like its working fine. Can you share the list of components you have used in your build?
  15. Thank you for taking the time to reply Jessie! I really appreciate it. I like the Gigabyte motherboard you mentioned, but like you said, it has been discontinued. I really don't mind going for a E3 processor under $500, however, I don't want to build a system that might feel sluggish after couple of years. I am not into custom builds (I usually prefer to buy computers from Apple, very little fuss). I am finding it very hard to coalesce a list of right components that will play along in harmony.
