  1. Well it’s been a while, but it looks like you may already have the right vendor to flash directly without cross flashing. You are in firmware 15 so you absolutely should upgrade. i think you may find that you can just flash it with no option rom directly. I’ll look at this more later when I can get to my computer. and yes I can send you version 14 if you need it. best, craigr
  2. I can already tell this is running really well. Big improvement! Thanks, craigr
  3. I have this problem as well coming from RC3. craigr
  4. Looks like a lot of great additions n the RC. As soon as I can reboot I'll apply it! Thanks, craigr
  5. I am running binhex-delugevpn already. Is it possible to run binhex-SABnzbdVPN at the same time considering there would be two VPN connections from the same PC? Better yet, is it possible to simply use the same VPN connection that binhex-delugevpn is already using? Thanks for any help! Kind regards, craigr
  6. Whew! Thank you sooooo much! I figured it had to be that way, but how intel spelled it out made me really question... Thanks for your help yet again. You’re a real asset to the forum. kind regards, craigr
  7. For reference ark specifies that for my current E3-1275L v3 processors: Note that support is specifically stated for 1x16 or 2x8, and not just 1x16 for the "PCI Express Configurations." Thanks again and kind regards, craigr
  8. I'm trying to figure out if the Intel® Xeon E3-1285L v4 processor will work in my Supermicro X10SLL-F main board. https://www.supermicro.com/en/products/motherboard/X10SLL-F https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/88043/intel-xeon-processor-e3-1285l-v4-6m-cache-3-40-ghz.html https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/datasheets/xeon-e3-1200v4-vol-1-datasheet.pdf (see pages 26-27) From the Supermicro specifications it would appear that the answer would be yes. However, ark.intel specifies "PCI Express Configurations 1x16" for the E3-1285L v4 processor. Furthermore, the motherboard has 2 PCI-E 3.0 x8 slots and 1 PCI-E 2.0 x4 (in x8 slot). I wrote Supermicro and asked if the CPU would be supported and this is what they said: ark.intel TX says the answer is, "E3-1285L V4 is within this family which is supported." And from TX's cryptic response it seems that the PCH controls the PCI-E 2.0 x4 slot. Which then leaves 16x available for the E3-1285L V4 to control. So what I don't understand is can the E3-1285L v4's "PCI Express Configurations 1x16" be used for "2 PCI-E 3.0 x8 slots?" IE can one 1x16 lane CPU be used for 2x8 lane PCIe slots? I hope this makes sense because I have no idea if it will work or not and I don't want to buy a $255 CPU on eBay from China that will not allow all of my PCIe slots to functions as I need both 8x slots for my configuration. Thanks for any help! craigr
  9. That's what gets me. Mine is set to "auto" and I have never changed it Should I? Thanks, craigr
  10. May I ask how one knows if this should be adjusted and to what value? Thanks, craigr
  11. When you run the preclear, the two "Current pending sector" should go to zero and not increase if the disc has any hope. Since this is a Western digital drive, if the two sectors pending reallocation are readable the "Current pending sector" count and the "Reallocated event count" will both be zero after the preclear. If the two sectors pending relocation are not readable, then your "Current pending sector" count should go to zero and your "Reallocated event count" should go to two. IMHO if either of the above happen and you run three preclears and another extended SMART test than you could probably use the disc again. However, if the extended SMART test fails or your "Current pending sector" count or "Reallocated event count" goes higher than two, than the disc should be discarded. One of my 8TB REDs with less than a year's worth of hours suddenly had two pending sectors. I replaced the drive and rebuild the array (in your case without parity all you can do is try and copy the data first). I ran a preclear and then "Current pending sector" count and "Reallocated event count" both read zero after. I then ran another two preclears and then an extended SMART test. No new "Current pending sector" count or "Reallocated event count" so I then returned the disc to its original location in the array. The drive has worked flawlessly for many months since then.

  12. Thinking about it more, it would be best to have an option in the SMB GUI to enable or disable v1.
  13. IMHO a server designed primarily with being a media server is going to have to support SMBv1 for many years to come. Too many media tanks only support SMBv1 and they can’t just get phased out anytime soon. SMBv1 may be deprecated, but the media players that run them are not. Best, craigr
  14. Also fwiw my DUNE players are not running Android. I have three Base 3.0 players and one SMART D1. These run Linux. Best, craigr
