  1. JeorgeB Thank you for verifying. I'll monitor the situation for now, and make sure I have a spare ready to go. R/, John
  2. Extended SMART test is attached.
  3. During the 12 hour of unBALANCE run to gather data from other disks to my Third Disk I got these errors related to my Third Disk. 197 Current pending sector 0x0012 100 100 000 Old age Always Never 8 198 Offline uncorrectable 0x0010 100 100 000 Old age Offline Never 8 Do I need a replacement drive ASAP? What are my next steps?
  4. For your question on the 10G NIC. I ran CAT6a when I moved into my home a couple of years ago, but networking equipment for 10G has been out of reach until pretty recently. I'm planning to go with MikroTik 5-Port Desktop Switch, 1 Gigabit Ethernet Port, 4 SFP+ 10Gbps Ports (CRS305-1G-4S+IN) for a Swtich, and use something like DAC to go from the Switch to Unraid Server via the Mellanox MCX311A-XCAT ConnectX-3, then to my office and other stuff I want to have a faster connection to unraid via Transceivers to RJ45 (CAT6a). One question I have is if I do a SPF+ to RJ45 Transceiver can I just use a RJ45 10g NIC in my office desktop, or would that require an SPF+ to RJ45 transceiver? Edit one more question: Do I really need to upgrade the power supply or can I still make due with the 400W's that I have now.
  5. Ok, after some consideration here is what I am thinking... CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 3200G Motherboard: ASRock X570M Pro4 Micro ATX AM4 RAM: G.Skill FORTIS 32 GB (4 x 8 GB) DDR4-2133 Power Supply: SeaSonic PRIME Titanium 600 W 80+ Array: Supermicro AOC-SAS2LP-MV8 - 8 HDD attached Cache: 2x Samsung 970 Evo 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive NIC: Mellanox MCX311A-XCAT ConnectX-3 EN 10G Ethernet 10GbE SFP+ Can someone help me validate if this build will actually do what I want to do? I'm asking because I'm not sure I can have enough PCIE lanes to run NIC and PIC to SAS, and 2 NVMEs at speeds above 6 gbs a second I mean if that works then I might tighten up the RAM, Power Supply, and Cache Drives because those are probably beyond my requirements right now.
  6. I built my Unraid Server in 2014 and have grown it in storage space over the years but have never swapped the Motherboard or looked to closely to adding a 10 gig nic. What is finally forcing me to upgrade is that when I first built my unraid server I built it in a Node 304 case using an Mini-ITX motherboard. When I did my last big expansion I bought a Node 804 that I love and is the perfect case for my purposes and use. Now that I am looking to add a second PCIe card I am going to need to get a Micro-ATX motherboard. I don't need a lot of power under the hood and don't run any VM's currently (but do run Plex in a Docker and a few other Dockers as well). What I have now: ASUS H87I-PLUS Intel Core i3-4130T 2.9GHz RAM: 8GB SeaSonic SS-400FL2 400W Platinum Supermicro AOC-SAS2LP-MV8 - 8 HDD attached (DATA) 2 HDD attached to SATA (PARITY) 2 SSD attached to SATA (CACHE) What I'm thinking: Ryzen 3? Supermicro AOC-SAS2LP-MV8 - 8 HDD attached (DATA) Mellanox MCX311A-XCAT ConnectX-3 EN 10G Ethernet 10GbE SFP+ 2 M.2 NVME (CACHE)? 2 HDD attached to SATA (PARITY) RAM 16GB? I'm assuming I'd need a larger power supply? When it comes to SFP+ networking I'm not sure if I want to go that way or 10 gig twisted copper. I ran CAT 6a in my home but the server is going in a closet with the network switch so I can prob use SFP+ DAC to go from the switch to the server... my office and other access points are in other rooms so I'd need to use a SFP+ to RJ45 to connect to CAT 6a... unless that's not going to work? Any draw backs on that? I've just started planning this out and haven't been paying close attention to computer hardware for a couple of years now... so any advice would be good.
  7. I've been an unraid user for a couple of years now but got sync errors on my most recent run. About 3 months ago I had issues related to bad SAS to SATA cables. Where a disk was disabled due to a failed write. I replaced that cable and had no problems for 2 months until my regularly scheduled check ran last night. I'm not sure how to read the logs, can you help me identify if it's a filesystem error, bad cable still, or a disk having problems? And help me out by telling me the proper course of action to correct the issue? Would love to go back to not having parity errors for years.
  8. This is in version 6.2.4 but it might exist before this version. When you are on the Main Page under the Array Devices Tab with the Help text on there are some links embed in the help text to help you navigate and change settings. In Example: Temp. (temperature) is read directly from the device. You configure which units to use on the Display Preferences page. We do not read the temperature of spun-down hard drives since this typically causes them to spin up; instead we display the * symbol. We also display the * symbol for SSD and Flash devices, though sometimes these devices do report a valid temperature, and sometimes they return the value 0. In this case the The "Display Preferences Page" is a link. However this takes you too http://Tower/Settings/Display which is incorrect. The actual page it should link to is http://Tower/Settings/DisplaySettings This is the case for every display preferences link in that help area on Main Array Devices. I feel like someone should audit and verify that there aren't other broken links too, which is quite possible. Impact: Low, just a bit confusing if you click the link and wonder why it doesn't take you to a working page. This can be fixed at any point just as long as it's rolled in eventually.
  9. I got this installed up and running tonight using my HDhomerun. It found my channels and figured out the muxes and all that, but I didn't get the EPG figured out. Also I wasn't sure how to change the recording directory, which I want to be a cache enabled share. I turned it off since I wasn't 100% up and running, (but very close.) Where do I change the record directory, and is there a good guide to figuring out the EPG with a HDHomerun (with OTA antenna)?
  10. Hey! 4.0.9 is still the most recent stable version of tvheadend... I just recently moved back home so I have my server in operation again. I will most probably look into updating to 4.2 in the next days. I apologize, I didn't realize that 4.2 was not the most recent stable, tricked by their website. X_X
  11. Stumbled across this... because I have an HDHomerun now... is this no longer supported or getting updates?
  12. /disk 5/ should be /disk5/ also if the folder is Emby Media your going to have to either put it in quotes or escape the space since spaces are meaningful. Also Also I should just be cd cd /mnt/disk5/"Emby Media"
  13. PhAzE's Plex Plugin is also pretty well done if all you want to do is Plex.
  14. Is your local DNS server included as a DHCP Push Option in your VPN setup?
  15. Well, if you have port 22 exposed, you will get hits within a day.. At least a higher non standard port will make it a bit harder for them.., Just a little bit though. You really need to use a VPN.
