  1. I don't have the experience to help you (I went the easy path and got a nvidia shield so no 4k transcoding needed), but if you want someone to spend their own time to actually help you, I'd edit that response and take out all the whining.
  2. Happy birthday Unraid. I just checked and it's been 10 years since I built my server. It's only just had its guts replaced this year. I love how solid Unraid is now.
  3. Thanks for the comments. I upgraded to a Ryzen 2600 at the weekend with a MSI x470 board. After an initial hiccup (I forgot to check about integrated graphics and couldn't boot it without a GPU - £5 later from a friendly local repair shop I was in business with a "WinFast PX7600GS") it all went smoothly. Unraid keying off drive serial numbers works like magic, swap out MOBO, CPU, RAM add a GPU and it boots straight up and in with the same config as before. I've then been on eBay and flashed a H310 Dell SAS card to IT mode last night to replace my cheap (and slow) SATA card. Once the cables arrive that is the next upgrade.
  4. Thanks, it's certainly not obvious it doesn't come with caddies, the pic has them in! They've confirmed they aren't included. Currently doing some rough estimates... Around £450 for a SUPERMICRO 6027R-E1R12L 2U 12 BAY SERVER M/B - X9DRD-7LN4F-JBOD Xeon E5-2660 2.2 GHz 8-Core (and could add a second for about £50 from ebay) 48GB DDR3 includes 12 caddies sourced from ebay 11098 Passmark with one CPU Arounf £390 for a Ryzen upgrade to current tower M/B - ASUS AMD AM4 Ryzen PRIME X370 Pro Ryzen 5 2600, 6 Core, 12 Thread, 3.4GHz 16GB (2x8GB) Corsair DDR4 13529 Passmark So... Ryzen is cheaper, has better single thread performance and is lower power (65w cpu versus 95w). SM has boats more (slower) RAM and space for a (cheap) second CPU. Ryzen will be quieter and the AM4 socket means I could swap in an upgrade in a few years if I wanted too. As this is going in a cupboard so the noise isn't really an issue... its a close call.
  5. Thanks for the advice. I’ll do some more digging on the Ryzen options.
  6. Why Aye man I don't think I'd be brave enough to go down the sample route Did you get your board from a UK supplier? I had a brief look at Ryzen but that only because I googled "threadripper" to see what that was all about (the last time I built an AMD PC it was many years ago with an Athlon...). I can see much more reasonably priced Ryzens now that I have a half decent look. Choosing a £150ish Ryzen, it seems quite close to a single aged xeon. https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare/AMD-Ryzen-5-2600-vs-Intel-Xeon-E5-2650-v2/3243vs2042 This was the server I found on eBay; https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SUPERMICRO-6027R-E1R12L-2U-12-BAY-SERVER-1x-INTEL-XEON-E5-2650-V2-32GB-RAM/113536006486?hash=item1a6f45f956:g:g04AAOSw9z1cDk0t:rk:6:pf:0 This site seems to have a good cheap/older selection; https://www.lamicro.co.uk/servers/supermicro-rack-servers?gclid=Cj0KCQiA7briBRD7ARIsABhX8aBHyFihku6GY8LXeP3rY7a2Lw-4-pMISdqMEdKv62jbGhKCn2kcztMaAk5lEALw_wcB I'm guessing that price will rise once all the little extras like any bays/cables/splitters/PCI cards are added though. Lifting my ATX board out and replacing it with a Ryzen board and CPU would be simpler... but would it be as fun?!
  7. I built my current server 10 years ago (i5 quad core 16GB tower) and it's starting to feel a bit of strain with the dockers I have running. I've read through quite a few build threads and like the look of the second hand server builds you see around - my server goes in a cupboard so size and noise aren't too much of an issue. The UK is not the best place to source Supermicro gear, it is less abundant and (much more) expensive. I've seen a few servers available but they are all pretty old models and I cant find much on them on the motherboards they use on the forum. Is there any reason I should be avoiding them? I could just get a newer ATX mobo and stick a i7 in there but a couple of old xeons and a bunch of smaller DIMMS looks like a lot more bang for the money? Example eBay server...

  8. This got lost in all the replies I think. Invalid port in redirect target. Only ports 80 and 443 are supported, not 444 error anyone?
  9. Sorry to add to the list of people with probably obvious issues but I'm having trouble getting this working too. I've been using it through the RC's and have unraid set to port 444 to avoid the clash. It was working fine before the CA change. I've followed the instructions above (thank you) and set the HTTPVAL flag to true. I'm using port 81 for the docker and have port 80 fwd to 81 in my router. I'm getting this error which I can't see is happening for anyone else... Failed authorization procedure. <redacted>.duckdns.org (http-01): urn:acme:error:connection :: The server could not connect to the client to verify the domain :: Fetching https://<redacted>.unraid.net:444/.well-known/acme-challenge/QaX0x01RBkOvVSiPIP5VlKlhGyQDYNZXTuanOrzQ-n0: Invalid port in redirect target.

  10. I couldn't see an obvious way to turn off https in unraid. I changed the secure port number in unraid which I don't think is a long term solution but has done the trick for now!
  11. Seeing the same issue on rc8q; Error response from daemon: driver failed programming external connectivity on endpoint letsencrypt (~): Error starting userland proxy: listen tcp bind: address already in useError: failed to start containers: letsencrypt
  12. Thanks, I'll do the long smart test and see if that brings up anything interesting.
  13. That diagnostic tool is great. Thanks for offering to take a look. The new disk is WDC_WD40EZRZ-00WN9B0_WD-WCC4E7RXXNR1 - 4 TB (sdg). It's 32C. No, some of the other disks were spun down. I had a look at the troubleshooting section before and have tried setting off a long smart test from the terminal. Not 100% sure it is running. ridcully-diagnostics-20170806-1257.zip
  14. Yeah, did a preclear on the disk which went fine. Something is up now though, I can't get smartdisk info, just says "Please wait... retrieving S.M.A.R.T. information!" . The disk is still mounted and I can copy files from it. The identity tab looks ok; SMART support: Available - device has SMART capability. SMART support: Enabled SMART overall-health: Passed Other disks are fine and a reboot hasn't fixed it.
  15. Hi, I just got a new drive so thought it would be a good time to make the move to XFS. I followed the wiki and took my next largest drive out of the global share settings and set of a rsync using nohup. It'd been killed after copying about 500GB of the 3TB drive; rsync error: received SIGINT, SIGTERM, or SIGHUP (code 20) at rsync.c(636) [sender=3.1.2] rsync error: received SIGINT, SIGTERM, or SIGHUP (code 20) at io.c(504) [generator=3.1.2] Any ideas what could have caused this to stop? Is using nohup likely to cause issues with all the output being written out?
