  1. Don't drink much, but i do have a tradition of fixing a drink when building a new computer. I have been having intermittent sync errors on parity checks, 37, then 7, then 1, then 1 then 2 on the checks i did last week. Hoping ecc will solve that. i ordered a 16gb stick of 2133 - https://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-1-16GB-PC4-2133P-DDR4-ECC-MEMORY-RAM-752369-081-Genuine-HP-Hynix/113710196896?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 Ill try that first with the 1300x and see how it goes.
  2. Super Newb question, if i am preventing disks from spinning up i should not have green lights under the active part of my dashboard, right? I disabled automatic scanning on plex to see if thats causing them to be green all day every day.
  3. I have one of these laying around with a ryzen 1300x and optionally a 2700x : https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-B350-F-GAMING/specifications/ One of the primary reasons i am switching is i want to go to ECC and why not switch to Ryzen at the same time. I took a look at newegg and wont be buying their memory (its really expensive!) So will this motherboard be ok? If not what would you recommend? I will be running 6 or so docker containers, plex being the main one. Also i have a few pages here of ecc ram and am looking for help picking some affordable and reliable ecc ram. I would say minimum 8gb, probably 16 or more is preferred. https://www.amazon.com/s?k=ecc+ddr4&ref=nb_sb_noss_2 and on ebay i couldnt find where to go for ECC only but here are some https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_dcat=170083&_fsrp=1&_nkw=ecc+ddr4&_sacat=0&_from=R40&rt=nc&Type=DDR4%20SDRAM Also i have read that memory speed is important, i see a bunch of 2133 ecc for cheap. Does it make much of a difference on ryzen with unraid? Not going to be gaming on this machine.
  4. Thanks everyone for the answers. eb3k - what vpn are you using? I assume it makes difference for speeds.
  5. Will the container isolate vpn to just deluge though? I would hate to have all other internet traffic on unraid go through vpn.
  6. Super Newb question - Can i only have a vpn for deluge and nothing else on my unraid machine? How much will a vpn affect speeds?
  7. I found this firmware - https://www.broadcom.com/products/storage/host-bus-adapters/sas-9207-8e#tab-archive-drivers3-abc i assume lsi was bought by broadcom? Also if anyone happens to know how to install from unraid command prompt or best way to install the firmware.. I also saw bios updates as well for the card, not sure that i would need those or what they are versus a firmware update.
  8. I am attaching 2 logs, one from yesterday when i first noticed read errors and one from this morning after a reboot yesterday. Only 1 disk had read errors in common, the rest were not on the same disks between last night and tonights logs - look 3/17/19 and 3/18/19 at approximately 00:33 tower-diagnostics-20190317-2136.zip tower-diagnostics-20190318-0733.zip
  9. I am curious, i have been using Binhex-Sonarr and it hasn't been updated in a long time... Has this version been getting updated lately?
  10. Awesome, i really appreciate it! This will help a lot.
  11. I can't seem to find how to see a users signature. I saw some reference to turning on forum signatures in the forums. I am sure this is an easy one and i'm missing something obvious.
  12. I am running an lsi 9207-8e card with 2 cables plugged into 2 of the following Chassis's: https://www.servethehome.com/sgi-rackable-3u-16-bay-se3016-sas-expander-chassis-forum-deal/ What i am looking for is something rackmount style that can handle up to 30 drives, less is ok. A decent power supply included. I normally just run cable from a pcie express card so i can switch machines easily but leave all the drives in the chassis (all but the ssd cache). It doesn't have to be quiet. What i am looking for is something with faster throughput but all the simplicity of what i have. Quicker parity checks and data rebuilds, 128 tb are 1 day 7 hours parity check, and i have seen up to a week for rebuilding 2 drives at the same time. Used is probably best since it should come with most everything and be cheaper. Price range - reasonable.. I don't mind spending some money. $200-$1000 price range. I do have quite a few 8tb seagate archive drives which i am sure are a big factor in my speeds, but i would consider starting a new server with WD white 8tb drives shucked from easystores. I am pretty sure i don't want a tall tower with a bunch of 3x5 drive bay expanders in it. Also i have a lot of experience building PC's but not a ton of experience with servers. This would be running plex, sabnzbd,radarr,sonarr, maybe deluge. Any suggestions or examples on ebay of proven/often used large drive array hardware is appreciated. If there is something that comes with the mobo/cpu/ram etc it isn't completely out of the question.
  13. Did you end up getting this? is it working ok? I am shopping around for something similar to upgrade my server.
  14. I first tried changing the file as johnnieblack suggested in the thread i posted above, that didn't work. After that i tried creating a new bootable usb stick and copying config files over from backup. That did work. As far as i can tell everything is working ok. I will mark this topic solved but am left curious what might have caused this failure.
  15. See attached screenshots. One is how it booted first time after shutdown and the next is the 2nd boot. I am not sure how much this will apply? Also i happened to download diagnostics prior to the reboot, on the off chance that there are clues in it. I just made a backup of my usb stick onto my windows machine and i think i have it set to backup on unraid. Also i tried booting without my external data drives, just the usb stick and the ssd are in the tower. No luck yet. Also i tried safe mode and it got same thing, i will try booting usb on a different computer next. tower-diagnostics-20190221-1347.zip ts.
