  1. Hi,


    I've had a drive disabled, I can see it is showing 2048 errors in the main screen.


    This happened about 6 months ago (I believe it was the same drive) but the diagnostics didn't indicate a drive issue.  I re-seated the cables and brought the drive back into the array and it has been fine since.  Can someone please take a look and let me know what the diagnostics indicate might be the problem?  Thank you.

    Disk dropped offline, SMART looks fine, most likely a connection/power issue.

    Is the correct method from here now to do a rebuild of the drive back onto itself?


    Last time this happened to me (years ago) I'm sure I just re-enabled the drive but this doesn't seem to be an option.

    That's the full list. 


    1&2 - Letsencrypt

    3 - Sabnzbd

    4 - Deluge

    5 - Another torrent docker I dont use anymore

    6 - Wireguard


    I've since deleted the torrent entries.  Does leaving a FWD entry to a port that isnt in use on the internal side create a security risk?

    These are the port forwarding rules I have.


    The miner was running under the user "nobody" which I use for applications.

  5. Hi,


    I noticed CPU activity at 100% this morning and "xmrig" was running.  A quick search and there are a couple of other threads of this happening to others who have opened some of their ports.


    I've had reverse proxy set up for a good while but I don't think I have any ports open directly to the server.


    I've attached my diagnosis file if anyone can see anything suspicious that would be much appreciated.




  6. 	Last check completed on Fri 07 Aug 2020 08:24:00 AM BST (today), finding 0 errors.
    Duration: 1 day, 10 hours, 53 minutes, 4 seconds. Average speed: 111.5 MB/sec

    Looks like parity wasn't valid.  That's a slight worry, not sure how that happened.  Better than a hardware problem though...

    If next check finds 0 errors likely parity wasn't valid before, if it finds more then you likely have a hardware issue, like bad RAM.


    We recommend setting scheduled checks to non correct.

    Yes, I've changed that setting now, thanks.  Not sure why I had it like that in the first place.


    25% through, no errors found on this new run...

  8. Hi,


    My server had a problem booting up last week (the CPU fan wasn't spinning).  I had a second machine being used as a PC so swapped all the drives into that and it booted up fine into unraid and everything seemed good.


    A parity check has now completed and its come back with over 700k errors.  This was a scheduled check with had "Write corrections to parity disk" set to "yes".  I'm now thinking that was a mistake...


    I've kicked off a second check (which won't write corrections).  Attached are the diagnostics.


    Advice appreciated...

    holy shit! Man you totally just solved all my problems! I had no idea 4k was the devil! I'll just delete it immediately, return my 4k tv, and go pick up a 1080p model at goodwill asap! /s


    I'm so sorry to come off as mean in this response. I really am. This is honestly a pet peeve of mine and you kinda triggered me hardcore - I'm just SOOOO tired of posting to forums about technical topics only to be told "Don't do what you're trying to do" for some reason. It's just not a productive or valid answer in the modern world of ever advancing technology. It's just an excuse. A cop out. 


    In fact, I have seen this post you reference - just not in detail because it turned me off of itself immediately. STOP saying 4k is evil and don't do it. It's truly like saying drugs are the devil and don't do any of them. How about explaining the REASON WHY!!!! (based on my data posted.) and the technical paths forward. 4k is the goddamn future whether it's ready on a specific platform or not. 


    I do now see several relevant topics in the post you reference. This is a complex technical problem and my entire post is centered around understanding the specific faults in my system for 4k streaming and transcoding - I need help with this because it's hard. 


    1. Is the Audio the source of my lag? The article references DTS and notes about manually removing certain audio formats. I this applicable based on the content I'm trying to play as referenced in my original post?


    2. What's the best way to currently separate libraries for 4k content vs 1080p content in plex? Any good guides / tutorials on doing so? I reallly hate to have to do this, but if it's the only technical solution, be it. 


    3. 4k is the future. What are the missing links for plex/emby/unRAID. What still needs to be done / or is in progress to make 4k streaming and transcoding easy?


    Anyway. ranting aside - If your're going to reply, how about instead, you provide an explanation relevant to the data I listed in the original post as to what is the root of the problem. 



    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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.
