  1. I have a 4tb parity disk that I'm going to let go, way back when it was used as a ntfs disk with some sensitive information as it was used as backup drive. I installed it in a test unraid machine with a 1tb drive, a 500gb drive and a few other smaller drives. Was the act of parity syncing effectively the same as having performed a secure erase? Nothing on there can be recovered right? I actually don't care array data, just the stuff that was on the disk when it was ntfs. Just a sanity check question here, it seems like the entire disk should have been filled with effectively random data or zeroes.
  2. @0x00000111 Can you show us the device listing/lspci so we can see what bridges and chips it uses? What platform are you running this on? (Ryzen, Intel, what chipset?) Thanks for the update.
  3. My mistake, these cards aren't Startech, they are Syba. They aren't a lot of use for people here perhaps because they aren't 4 USB controllers. I basically use a bunch of them to get SATA ports and USB ports out of all my PCI-e 1x slots. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MVTB8TK/
  4. Surprised so many people have trouble with these. I own a bunch of startech SATA/USB3.0 combo cards with the same USB controllers and asmedia bridges and they all passthrough the USB controller fine.
  5. I've had this problem with earlier releases when changing other configuration options. Never really did figure it out, but it never seemed to happen when I wasn't messing with things so I wasn't to worried about it. In my case I never seemed to lose anything, just an annoyance since I had to reboot after re-enabling.
  6. I find switching to i440fx from q35 the pci structure doesn't automatically fix itself up. In practice its easier for me to create a whole new VM than try to fix the xml.
  7. Hmmm, I thought the BIND method did use PCI addresses not device ids. That's what I entered anyway, since that was the format that a forum post referenced. Maybe that is why it didn't work for me.
  8. So I want to get access to dma-buf and it appears it requires opengl support to be enabled in the qemu build. How hard would it be to build a one with this feature enabled? I downloaded the source and started the make last night, and noticed it needed a lot of dependencies.
  9. I tried this method a few days ago as a part of troubleshooting something else and also found that it didn't work at all. vfio-pci-ids works but I thought it was perhaps binding to late.
  10. Second this, for same reason as Pauven. Its not as easy as it sounds though, because what happens when you change a file on the cache? How will that link up to the array?
  11. Another component I've found that is missing is unraid's qemu appears to not be compiled with opengl support. This isn't required to make gvt-g function, but there is a dmabuf function that requires it to link the VM display to the mediated card. You can use a client installed vnc, rdp...maybe looking glass, instead but its a real QoL improvement that isn't there. That said, given how unraid is built its not clear to me if openGL would actually work. The i915 driver must be loaded for this to work, but that might not be the only backend piece missing.
  12. Sorry, stock one. There are no nvidia drivers. I tried a number of things yesterday, OVMF VMs actually do work. I'm probably going to proceed with the dummy vm during i915 load. Its kludgy but if its stable I guess I'll be satisfied.
  13. I have a passed through ROM, although that didn't make a difference.
