  1. If you've been trying an OVMF installation, maybe try switching to SeaBIOS to see if that works? We've had no problems with Windows Server 2016, so not sure exactly what's causing this issue just yet.
  2. @MothyTim Definitely sorry to see that you are having difficulties with your setup, but Unraid is not the issue here. There are countless demonstrations (videos/testimonials) out there leveraging our software without the issues you're experiencing. The vast majority of the time when users are having issues with virtual machines, it can be traced back to something with the hardware. The easiest way to verify this is to simply remove all the physical device assignments from your virtual machines. That means no GPUs, Sound Cards, Storage Controllers, Firewire devices, etc. Get rid of ALL of them from your VMs. Now try running them for a bit and see if you run into problems. If not, start slowly adding them back one at a time until you start getting OOM errors again. In addition, I would move to a completely stock configuration of Unraid both for plugins and your VMs. Don't use your unassigned device to store the vdisk (for now) just to rule out any outliers on the issue. In addition, once those memory problems start occurring, reboot the system into terminal mode (not the GUI), and using a local monitor, mouse, and keyboard, login to the console and type the following command: tail /var/log/syslog -f This will start printing the system log to the screen in real time. Once a hang/crash occurs, take a picture of what's on the screen and post it back here for us to review. This is the best way to figure out what process is causing the problems.
  3. LOL! I've had that happen to me too before!
  4. Has anyone captured anything in their logs related to the corruption? Either the container logs, the docker logs, or the syslog itself?
  5. Can anyone using the Plex official Docker Container confirm that this issue affects them as well when using /mnt/user instead of /mnt/cache?
  6. Meaning the laptop screen itself won't display anything?
  7. Hi there, This is a very weird issue you're having and not sure how we can go about recreating it or why this would be a problem in the first place or how Unraid would be causing it. Just to confirm, this is the scenario: - You have Windows 10 installed on a Macbook Pro connected to your network via WiFi - Prior to 6.7, you would be able to copy files over the network to this device at 300-500 mbps - After 6.7, you are limited to 6 mbps - This behavior does exhibit itself on any other devices, wired or wireless, nor does it happen on the same device when booted into Mac OS First question would be if you use another wireless device with Windows (on non-Mac hardware), what happens?
  8. Having read through the entirety of the post and reviewing your diagnostics, I can safely say this is likely a hardware issue. Either CPU, memory, cooling, power, or cabling is likely amiss. We have tested Unraid thoroughly on multiple Threadripper systems (both TR1 and TR2) and we've never run into these kind of stability issues on any release of Unraid OS. I definitely think you either have some defective hardware, insufficient/improper cooling, or something else amiss in your build to have all these problems. At this point, I would completely disassemble the system and inspect each component one by one. Maybe even try installing another OS for testing if you can. If you can't even get into memtest though, that's a pretty strong sign pointing to a hardware-specific problem.
  9. Hi there, I know you have been patiently waiting for feedback on this. I need to take a much closer look at your logs to start providing troubleshooting steps. I will do that for you later today.
  10. https://www.pcworld.com/article/3314983/intel-905p-nvme-ssd-review-blazing-random-access-and-amazing-endurance-for-a-hefty-price.amp.html Here's a good example of an nvme device that boasts strong endurance. Really really strong endurance Obviously the quality of flash used will determine the durability, but that's true regardless of the protocol. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  11. Replied in that other thread. Really need to see where you got this info about nvme drives. All flash storage can vary in method or type of memory. Nvme is just a different protocol which allows for faster raw speeds that would otherwise be impossible over SATA, and by itself shouldn't have any overall impact on device endurance.

  12. Maybe I am.not as well versed in this area, but I thought MAC addresses were assigned at the hardware level and couldn't be changed. The only place I know for sure you can customize your MAC address was for virtual NICs presented to VMs.
  13. Would be curious to see a link where you read this. I have never heard of nvme drives having less of a lifetime. My understanding is they are the same underlying storage (flash) but just through a faster protocol. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  14. We have had nothing but problems with ADATA branded drives. It is definitely not anything Unraid is doing. They are just a cheap brand with very poor reliability. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
