  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 @johnnie.black, 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 @johnnie.black 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 pcpartpicker.com 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.
  16. Helle Kizer - Are you happy with this configuration? Did you face any problem, example system lockup/freezing etc? Like you, I am in the same boat, looking to upgrade my budget build which is about 8 years old. Is it a typo, or do you actually have ECC RAM on your system? I asked this because (at least the website says) the AsRock Z87 Extreme 6 does not support ECC. Here is my final goal for the new system: I would like to use my new build as a workstation, use GPU passthrough, use peripherals (keyboard, UBS devices, etc). Run about 1 - 2 VMs (Windows 10 or Ubuntu Desktop). Run about 10 - 15 dockers, for example Plex, MariaDB, custom Docker containers mostly running JVMs. Use my current Cooler Master 590 case (same as yours) Budget $1500 - $2000 Also, the processor, motherboard, etc you have listed has been discontinued. How do I build a system with current hardware and still have full compatibility with unRAID. I don't want to have another dire need for system upgrade any time soon. Thanks, Sagun
  17. I moved this under "unRAID Compulsive Design" section. I tired deleting this thread, but was unsuccessful. Moderators, please feel free to delete this. Thanks, Sagun
  18. Hi - I have been using/running unRAID for about 8 years. I started with a basic build (only upgrade I have done over the period is add more RAM and hard drives), please see attachment for details. However, now with dockers and VMs running, I feel like its time to upgrade my machine with server grade components. LimeTech has a good server hardware recommendation in their wiki page, but feels like its outdated. I would like to build a system that will last few years without a dire need for an upgrade. I would like to keep using my Cooler Master Centurion 590 case. But, these are my requirements: run the server as a development machine, where I can deploy/test code, run CI/CD tools etc. Use Plex to stream/transcode MKV movies. run 10 - 15 dockers, mostly MariaDB, Plex, custom docker images with programs running on JVM run 1 - 2 Ubuntu server or desktop VM. Using device pass through with peripherals. Xeon (is i7 enough?) processors with multiple cores/hyper threads. I am thinking more cores the better, because I will be running multiple docker containers. ECC RAM, is 32 GB enough or do I need 64 GB? Do I really need ECC ram? Motherboard that can support about 8 SATA drives, I don't want to add SATA controllers. Currently, I have 5 hard drives, and one SSD drive as cache. In the near future I see myself adding one more SSD to create a BTRFS pool. I am not into gaming, therefore I probably don't need a fancy graphics card. But, a graphics card is needed to run Ubuntu Desktop VM as a primary development machine. I would like the budget to be in between $1500 - $2000. I am thinking, the budget should be good enough to get a decent system, including a new power supply. But, I have been wrong before. Could you please give me a list of hardware, similar to the LimeTech server recommendation, that is still current and compatible with unRAID. Also, please do let me know if I am out of my mind, or if what I am thinking is not be possible. Thanks, Sagun

  20. I just saw this error on my log, please see the screenshot. I can upload the log file if needed.
  21. Hi Craigr - Yes, the power supply is sufficient and operational. Thanks!
  22. Do you thinking, adding a cache drive recently could have anything to do it the sync errors?
  23. OK, I ran memtest for 5 passes with 0 errors. Next, I will change ports 5 and 6 to SATA from IDE. What is the next step from there? Thanks, Sagun
  24. OK, I'll run the memtest tonight, and change the SATA ports 5 and 6 to SATA from IDE settings. Thanks!
  25. Hi - Yesterday, after a power failure I got 14,000+ sync errors, then I ran second parity check (with parity correction this time). The second parity check did "correct" all but couple of errors. Today, I ran the third parity check (hoping I would get 0 errors). However, I ended up with 286 errors, please see the attachment. Could someone please take a look at my diagnostics and let me know what is causing all these errors? Thanks, Sagun tower-diagnostics-20171113-2331.zip
