  1. Thank you so much for gathering all of this information in one place. I personally had been using the VMDK boot method but updating was a huge pain. I figured I would share my journey to move from VMDK boot to Plop boot. Fist of all thank you to Itamar for his instructions on setting up Plop. Follow all of the steps under "Make a Plop Boot Manager image (on Windows)" Copy the ISO to the VM folder on the datastore. Copy all of the files from the boot VMDK to USB I had an issue with syslinux, I kept what was on the USB Remove Hard Disk 1 (old boot
  2. Good morning, I am running into the following error when I attempt to install Sonarr 2015-12-09 09:01:02 [iNFO] *** Apply - Enable Initiated *** 2015-12-09 09:01:02 [iNFO] Stopping Sonarr... 2015-12-09 09:01:02 [iNFO] Stop OK: Not installed 2015-12-09 09:01:03 [iNFO] Updating settings 2015-12-09 09:01:03 [iNFO] Updating plugin config file 2015-12-09 09:01:03 [iNFO] Installing Sonarr... 2015-12-09 09:01:04 [iNFO] Updating dependencies 2015-12-09 09:01:04 [iNFO] Dependency install file has correct MD5 2015-12-09 09:01:04 [iNFO] Using /mnt/cache/.PhAzE-Common for dependency directory
  3. I am wondering why you are running Plex on your unRAID VM, personally I went to ESXi (because I work with it everyday) to allow me to split my workloads into silos and yes I know this works with Dockers too. I would look at moving your Plex to an Ubuntu Server, I am running mine with 2 vCPU and only 4 GB of RAM and I am able to transcode 4 streams inside my house and 3 outside without anyone noticing. This includes using Vizio TVs, Chromecast, Android Phone/Tablet, Roku and a Nexus player. What sgibbers17 is talking about is over subscription, with virtualization being a bit more f
  4. I updated the OP but I have moved away from Tretflix, I am also running v6b15 and the VMTools. If there is any interest, I can post my "script" for creating a Sonarr, SAB and CP server as well as a Plex server. It took me about 15 minutes to have Plex up and running with a static IP and a few other settings a server should have. I am planning to keep an eye on disks and start adding some more in the near future.
  5. I love this case, you can find my build using it in my signature. The noise is based on a switch on the back of the case, you can turn the fans up and down, I moved mine to a utility room in my house so I don't hear it but it was in my room for about a month and it was silent. I used just the fans included. As far as I can tell there is not enough space but you can put one on either side of both cages. I used just the default 3 fans and I have not had an issue with heat, the room I was in was above a garage and not very well insulated, not very scientific but you know...
  6. I am not sure how many disks you are looking to run but this is what I built, I am using ESXi 5.5 and everything works with onboard (dual NICs plus 1 for IPMI, 8 SAS ports with an LSI controller that tI pass through). Hope that helps!
  7. I don't know why I am not getting updates on this thread so I have to apologize. I went back through my orders and found the exact kit from Amazon. That seems to be what is in the PCPartPicker build as well. I am glad you got it figured out and sorry you had such an issue getting it set up. @phreshjive I love the board and the whole setup. It has been running like a dream, I now take my Roku 3 with me when I travel, connect to Plex and I can keep up with my shows when I am in different states. All the money and time spent setting this up was very worth it. I love being able to reboot Tret
  8. All of the Memory QVL chips are ECC so it's likely a safe bet that ECC memory is REQUIRED. QVL Yes it is required to be ECC, I guess I am dense as I thought I had put a link up to my build on PCPartPicker but I had not. Those are my exact parts.
  9. I used ECC RAM, the RAM I have listed in the part list is ECC unbuffered, expensive but worth it. Not sure why I didn't get an email about a post being added, sorry for the slow response.
  10. I picked up a 4th 3 TB Red Drive, I used up most of the available space transferring existing content. Hopefully that will keep me for a little while.
  11. I picked up a kill-a-watt, I had been meaning to that for a while now. I will be entering the information as soon as I am back at home.
  12. So I have put everything in the new Fractal Node 804 with a power supply I had lying around. I will have more pictures tomorrow, I am going to start working on moving over my media. I have decided to build a couple robocopy jobs to exclude some items I don't want. The Node 804 is a dream to work with, it has plenty of space and fits the Extended Micro-ITX perfectly, it is nice because if chose to, I could upgrade to a Micro-ATX motherboard if at some point I need more PCI-E slots. The manual had just enough info to be pretty useful, I could see mount 8x 3.5" drives very easily in the case
  13. Well, I did not read Phresh's thread as well as I should, the board, which I am in love with, is an Extended Micro-ITX does not fit. The board is too tall to fit in the case. Now I am stuck with either getting a new case (Looking at the Norco RPC2008 or the SilverStone DS380B) but I love the U-NAS case and I do have an IBM M105 card, so the question is, should I send the MotherBoard back and use the M105 flashed to IT. Any thoughts on that or on whether or not I should RAID the SSDs for the datastores would be greatly appreciated. I ended up picking up this case, we shall see what ha
  14. Thanks, that should be coming in tomorrow, honestly I was shocked at how quickly it got here from China. I cannot wait to put all the parts in and to the cable management, yes, I know I am crazy. Edit: Fedex wasn't up to date this morning, it should be here today, I guess I will be skipping lunch so I can get home and get this built!
