  1. I've NEVER had good luck with the small APC bricks, especially on servers. I also use a minimum of a 1000va (I have a rack mount SMT1000RM2U Smart-UPS 1kva powering my server & external drive chassis', and a Back-UPS Pro BR1500G 1500va that powers my switch, router, wireless, etc). Those little power-bar-like backups aren't really intended to run a server, they're more for desktop PC's anyway. What's most likely happening with your dirty shutdown, is the machine hits the battery threshold to shut down (you've got it set for 5%, after a minimum of 5 minutes), and there's not enough juice left to power down safely, and it's dropping out before Unraid fully shuts down. Are you running docker or VM's on that machine by chance? My only complaint with my APC's was that I didn't verify that the SmartUPS I have was expandable, otherwise I'd have it all running on that one box. My only other complaint with my systems is the Norco external array, it's only got a single power plug, no redundant supplies in it :(. If the HP P2000 drive trays weren't so damned expensive, I'd replace it with one of those in a heartbeat, lol.
  2. That was what I was kind of worried about, not knowing who actually made them. Could be anybody really.
  3. So basically (according to their page), white label brand name drives. I'll probably just go with an Seagate Exos ST12000NM0007 instead. Just though with the price difference, someone here may have tried them out.
  4. Out of curiosity, anybody here used any of these Water Panther drives in an unraid setup, or even heard of them before? https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?d=Water+Panther Looking to replace my existing parity drive with a 12tb 7200rpm SAS drive, and was looking at what was available out there..
  5. I know my drives are fine (I ran a parity check a few days ago with no errors), so I removed and re-added the parity drive, and I'm letting it run another check.
  6. I was trying to pass through a raid card to a VM (had it listed in the append line), and when I started the array, even though that specific card was the only hardware checked (and listed), it also grabbed one of my LSI cards that has the parity drive, and a few other drives connected to it. The parity drive of course was no long able to be accessed, so the system disabled it. On a reboot, it shows it still disabled, how do I get it re-enabled? There's nothing WRONG with the drive, the controller was basically shunted to the VM when I started it, causing those drives to 'fail'.
  7. I was able to find the June 2013 SPP For the Gen8's, hopefully it'll be old enough to make the pass through stuff work. If not I know I can just pull the 420i out and drop in a LSI -16i card of some type in, but if I can use the hardware I have that'd be nice. (That VM will only use at most 4 of my 16 available slots on the system, so 2 of those front bays will probably be moved to a LSI card anyway). I'll give it a try when I get home from work this evening and report back on any success/failure.
  8. Sorted out the errors above, I new it was something to do with the power monitoring, but couldn't remember for the life of me what to do to fix it.. Looks like the seller loaded the latest BIOS/Firmware on this thing, the backup ROM is an older version, but newer than the suggested version in the other post. (P70, 08/02/14, Bootblock 03/05/2013). Do these handle downgrading the bios well, if so I'll look for something in the '13's. I'll also try the backup rom first, to verify it one way or another. In my other post on this machine, I was looking at passing the 420i card (in a PCI slot, not onboard) to a Server 2016 VM that I run our offsite backup server on for work, but was running into issues there. It appears that is also addressed here as well, lol.
  9. Has anybody sucessfully passed the P420i raid controller to a W2016 server VM? IOMMU Group info for relevent devices (trying to pass through either of those HP Smart Array controllers, or both): IOMMU group 21: [103c:323b] 02:00.0 RAID bus controller: Hewlett-Packard Company Smart Array Gen8 Controllers (rev 01) IOMMU group 23: [1000:0087] 04:00.0 Serial Attached SCSI controller: Broadcom / LSI SAS2308 PCI-Express Fusion-MPT SAS-2 (rev 05) IOMMU group 24: [103c:323b] 07:00.0 RAID bus controller: Hewlett-Packard Company Smart Array Gen8 Controllers (rev 01) IOMMU group 25: [1000:0064] 0a:00.0 Serial Attached SCSI controller: Broadcom / LSI SAS2116 PCI-Express Fusion-MPT SAS-2 [Meteor] (rev 02 Used this in the syslinux.cfg: label Unraid OS menu default kernel /bzimage append vfio-pci.ids=103c:323b initrd=/bzroot It showed the controllers in the setup for a Windows VM I created, but I got a message when trying to start that it was in use? Also made the fan subsystem in that machine ramp up to 100% fan output. I'm most likely going to replace the P420i controller with another LSI board I have, but I'd like to use the onboard passed through if possible. If I can't get it to work I'll just disable the onboard and add yet ANOTHER LSI card, lol.
  10. Just moved my server over from a Cisco C200 M2 box to a HP DL380p G8 machine (MUCH quicker, and plenty of expansion room). I've noticed a bunch of ACPI errors in the logs, how have other people who have these boxes gotten rid of them, or do you just ignore them?

  11. I'm seeing the same thing, but every other screen refresh they disappear under Unassigned Devices. This is on the latest RC.
  12. I think the 3108 is the same LSI card that came in my Cisco C200, if it is, it only supports drives up to I think 2.2tb, nothing higher. I ended up pulling that off the board (it was an add-on module), and install 2 other LSI cards, one for the internal slots, one for my external array. The 3108 IS supported if it is the same as mine, just has limitations...
  13. I primarily use Chrome, and that's where I've seen the issue. I'll try it with an alternate browser next time I see an update and see if it's chrome related or not. I'm going to assume you're right on this, as it seems to be consistently the preclear plugin that does this. I'll post over on the support thread for it here shortly.
  14. This is the link to the case, without the hot-swap bays (came with 2 4 drive bays that weren't removable, I replaced those with the hotswap modules). I don't think I have the old static-drive bays anymore, nor the blank covers for the upper 3 5.25 bays where the 5-in-3 is located. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811123131R&cm_re=sr10769-_-11-123-131R-_-Product The hotswap bays were around 60/each for the 4 bay ones. The 2 bay 2.5" is actually a Chenbro as well, which was around 50. The 5-in-3 is a Supermicro, which I believe was around 60-70. I've got around 400 in the case, but I'll let it go for much less for someone local-ish, of if you're not local, if you pay actual shipping (which I'd need to weigh it to get a shipping if anybody is interested).
