  1. OK, I thought that was a problem. So I thought that if you passthrough a core, the intention is for that core to be dedicated to the vm. If that's not the case, then I guess I'm fine. Thanks,
  2. No. Only utilizing the gui. Are there any custom xml edits maybe I should try?
  3. I've tried multiple combinations of settings, but I can't get the emulated cpu setting to stick when I create a vm. When initially creating the vm, it lets me select emulated with no errors, but then later after the vm is created the setting changes itself to Host Passthrough. And if I edit the settings and change back to emulated I get an error, "Execution Error the CPU is incompatible with host CPU: Host CPU does not provide required features: svm". I don't want to do Host Passthrough cause this processor only has 2 cores and I may want to run multiple vm's on it in the future. This is my secondary server, and will ultimately be a backup server, so I don't care that much about cpu performance which is why I chose a 2 core unit. It's a celeron G3900, all virtualization technology is supported and turned on in the bios of my motherboard which is a SUPERMICRO MBD-X11SAE-M-O, running the latest bios revision.
  4. Maybe I'm old school, but I've used midnight commander and screen to do stuff like this several times in the past and it works great.

    Power Supply Question

    Thanks Squid!!! I get it now. The answer is NO! You can't do that!

    Power Supply Question

    This might be a dumb question, I'm not sure. Couldn't find any good answers to this question googling it. I have a power supply with 2 8pin connections on it labeled VGA. And I know that the manufacturers intention was that these ports would provide power to graphics cards. But since I don't intend on having a graphics card in this system, with the right adapters can I use these ports to power drives? I've seen online what looks like an adapter to convert this 8 pin to molex, but I think it's for the opposite of what I want to do. I think they are intended to power a video card using 2 molex connections. Anyway, any info is greatly appreciated.
  7. Is it possible to have a cache and unassigned disks only system? Seems like something that should be possible, but I can't figure out how to do it. It looks like Array can't start without a data disk assigned to a slot. Is this correct? Any workaround?
  8. I've been using Unraid since 2008, in that time I've unfortunately had several drives fail, upgraded drives, expanded my array and even moved it to completely new hardware. Unraid did what it was supposed to do each time and I never lost any data. A feature I'd really like to see added would be an integrated backup solution. I've started putting together a backup server, and will soon have to decide on a backup software to use with it, if there was an integrated solution, that would be ideal.
  9. You could replace the 4 in 3 enclosures with 5 in 3 ones.
  10. I may try this when I get home today. I wonder why that would be?
  11. The AOC-SAS2LP-MV8 is a better card, some on here have had problems with it, but always worked well for me. I had AOC-SASLP-MV8, and the 2 is much faster.
  12. Good catch. The 10TB version which Best Buy has had on sale frequently over the past year and a half or so, is right now more expensive than the 14 and 12 terabyte versions. I've shucked 3 of the 10TB, and all are working well.
  13. You can right now setup an unraid vm on your unraid server, I've done it. There are other threads that offer some good information on how to do this. I spent quite a bit of time fussing around with it to get everything working correctly because I had issues other people probably wouldn't, but at the very basic level I just passed a usb controller card and a sata controller card through to the vm. I agree that Limetech making it possible to create 2 array's on the same server would be more elegant, but if you're looking for a way to expand past 30 drives on the same hardware right now, you could do this.
  14. Hello All, This post is sort of a troubleshooting thing, and sort of a software suggestion thing. I'm wondering how other unraid users handle mass file copies from their Windows workstation, to their unraid servers. My use case is simple, I'll download torrents and other files to various directories on my Windows workstation, and then weekly or so copy\move them to unraid. I'm not looking for something automated, because maybe I don't want to move everything to unraid, maybe I want to delete it, or keep it on my windows machine for a little while longer and then delete it, before moving it to what I consider to be the more permanent storage of my unraid server. For years I've used Teracopy 2.3 for this function, and I was very happy with it. Fast and stable. Recently it has started randomly locking up. The behavior may have coincided with an unraid upgrade, but I couldn't swear to that. So then I upgraded to the most recent version of Teracopy and that wouldn't work at all, kind of bizarre. It opens, just won't move anything. Completely uninstalling Teracopy, windows default file copy mechanism was reinstated, and it works just as it always did, no odd lockups, just no intelligence. There are alternative applications that provide this type of functionality. For example, I downloaded supercopier, but it did the same thing the newer version of teracopy did, which was wouldn't move any files. For comparison sake, I reinstalled the old version of teracopy and it's behavior was same as it had been, it worked, but would just stop copying files randomly.
