    New to unraid

    In my experience, Marvell controllers can cause all kinds of other problems such as, drives dropping out of the array, drives displaying errors when there are in fact none, it's a headache you don't want to deal with. Look for a Dell HBA H200 or H310 either flashed to IT mode or you can do it yourself, it's easy enough and there is a guide on here somewhere with easy steps to follow.
  2. Are you trying to stick to a budget on this build? If you have some more flexibility with budget I might suggest you cruise eBay for a bare bones 24 bay rack mount Supermirco chassis. They are more money, but worth every cent, and will give you room to grow.

  4. I have a drive in my array that has some reported uncorrected errors. It passes an extended smart test and the value representing the errors has not changed in about a week. I have a parity check coming up in about a week and I am wondering what will happen. I assume the parity check will fail but will the drives data be emulated by the parity drive forcing me to replace it? I want to replace it but just don't have the $$ at the moment since being laid off since March due to covid. https://imgur.com/a/ULSNTF6
  5. Yes thanks, I am still interested.
  6. Wow this is an old thread, I did not notice an increase in I/O performance.
  7. I concur, it's ok for a home setup, but for business critical stuff, I would not recommend it either.
  8. How would I roll back to a previous version of Medusa? The current (latest) version seems to be broken and is not querying my 'completed/TV' folder where new TV downloads reside. I am running version 0.3.16 Thank you.
  9. I have a dashboard setup now monitoring one of my unRAID servers and I have some questions. How would I add dashboards to monitor other unRAID servers? If I wanted to add a dashboard to monitor Plex, would I just add the data from the telegraf.conf file from the Plex dashboard to my existing telegraph.conf file for my unRAID dashboard, or does it become its own instance and if so how do I set that up?
  10. I am following this guide: https://technicalramblings.com/blog/how-to-setup-grafana-influxdb-and-telegraf-to-monitor-your-unraid-system/ I have created a directory called telegraf, I have downloaded the conf file and copied it to the dir. I have edited it according to the guide. I have then installed the telegraf docker which installs fine. When I go to start the docker, I get the following error. 2020-05-23T15:26:28Z E! [telegraf] Error running agent: Error parsing /etc/telegraf/telegraf.conf, line 6: invalid TOML syntax I already have HDD TEMP and InfluxDB installed and running, but I have not installed Grafana yet. Any ideas as to what I have missed?
  11. I moved the cache drive to a different physical disk slot in my server, when I powered the server back on it appeared as an unassigned device, added back as my cache drive and everything is back to normal. What is the best way to backup the cache drive so that if this happens again it would be relatively easy to put everything back?
  12. My cache drive just up and died out of the blue, was a 2TB Seagate Firecude drive, not even two years old. I was running plex and a bunch of other dockers. What can I do to get everything back?

    Happy Birthday, I just joined the club last month, cheers!
  14. I look at ECC as insurance, I won't need it, until I need it. Better to have it than spend hours trying to pin point an error in memory which isn't always easy to find.
