  1. Hi @johnnie.black I thought that I would chip into this post. I logged into @uaeproz server yesterday morning to help to do some testing with a new array and clean install. This was because his normal array (of 170tb and 11 data drives and 2 parity drives, encrypted xfs) the array will never start on any version of Unraid above 6.5.3. It always hangs after mounting the first or second drive in the array. He has been trying to upgrade to each new release of Unraid as they come out with the same problem and then having to downgrade back to 6.5.3 for his server to work correctly. What we thought that we would do yesterday, is to see if we could do a clean install of 6.7.0 stable. Then make a 1 drive array and see if the problem persisted. He removed all of his normal data and parity drives from the server. One 4tb drive was attached. An array was created with just one data drive with a clean install onto flashdrive of Unraid 6.7.0. The file system chosen was encrypted xfs (to be the same as the normal array) On clicking 'start the array' the drive was formatted but as the array started, the services started to start and it hung there. The gui saying starting services. The array never fully became available. I looked at the data on the disk and saw that the system share/folder only had the docker folder and had it had not created the libvirt folder. So i assumed that the vm service was unable to start but the docker service had. The server wouldn't shut down from the gui or command line so had to be hard reset. On restarting the server , before starting the array, I disabled the vm service. This time the array started as expected. However, stopping the array again it hang on stopping the services and the array wouldn't stop. Again needed hard reset. Next starting the array without the docker service or vm service running the array would start and stop fine. So next i tried starting the array without the docker or vm service running. Then once the array had finished starting then manually starting the docker and vm service. This worked fine. And so long as these services were manually stopped before attempting to stop the array, then the array would stop fine. ----- So next I deleted that array and made a new one using standard xfs (not encrypted) with the same 4tb drive. The array started fine with both the docker and vm service running without issue. The array could stop fine too. So basically everything worked as expected when the drive was not encrypted. I was hoping from the results of those tests that when we connected the original drives went back to the original flash drive, and upgraded the system to 6.7.0. that the array would start if docker service and vm service were disabled. This wasn't the case. The array didn't finishing mounting the drives. It stopped after mounting the first drive and had to be hard reset. So this is a strange problem. The OP has also tried removing all non-esstential hardware such as GPU. Also tried moving disk controller to different PCIe slot. He has run memtest on the ram which has passed. The diag file that he attached to the post, if I remember, was taken with one drive in the server formatted as xfs encrypted. Starting the array with the vm service enable. The array never finished starting just stuck on starting services. That when this file was downloaded. before hard resetting Hope that helps.
  2. Been asked about putting the time machine share on an unassigned disk rather than the array. So here's how
  3. Make sure that you are also passing through the sound part of the GPU. [10de:0fb9] 01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation GP107GL High Definition Audio Controller (rev a1) The driver will expect there to be Nvidia sound hardware present. If you want to use a different sound card just pass through a second one but leave the Nvidia present. Also if you are booting Unraid in UEFI mode then try legacy mode. Click flash on the main page and check if you are using legacy or UEFI. Also, you could try passing through the vbios for the GPU. You can find it on tech powerup here https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/?architecture=NVIDIA&manufacturer=EVGA&model=GTX+1050+Ti&interface=&memType=&memSize=&since= but you will need to remove the header in a hex editor for it to work. See my vid here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IP-h9IKof0 Also just check things in your bios on the motherboard. Make sure that things such as the gpu order have your onboard as primary. Enable Multi monitor if you see it. Also if you have iommu option that is set to auto, change it to enabled. Can't think of anything else. Good luck @Twisted
  4. These qotom mini pcs with i3/i5 cpu and 4 intel nics are great for pfSense https://www.aliexpress.com/item/QOTOM-Mini-PC-PFSense-AES-NI-with-4-Gigabit-NIC-Core-i3-i5-i7-Processor-Fanless/32844513479.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.37e52b455yVaVx&algo_pvid=396fa50f-0a25-48c9-99fa-8621da4336ea&algo_expid=396fa50f-0a25-48c9-99fa-8621da4336ea-25&btsid=eedacd42-7615-4d1a-8183-2f2ea23c1fb9&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_2,searchweb201603_52
  5. Thanks, @Frank1940 @Jcloud Thanks for the info. I did a video a while ago for linked connections so didnt add it to this video only referenced it in the vid. I read your post. Thanks for the tip for removing those crap windows programmes like candy crush.... god i hate that built-in bloat The second part is up now, here.
  6. Hi Guys. Here is the second part of a series taking an in-depth look at Unraid shares. This one mainly looks at MacOS and Unraid. Looking at setting up and using shares with MacOS. It goes through various problems that you can have with shares and macOS and how to overcome them. Such as how to stop files like the .ds_store and other files from being created on the array. It also looks at how to create a Time machine backup share to keep your Mac backed up on your Unraid server. Hope you find this vid interesting
  7. This video is the first part of a series taking an in depth look at Unraid shares. This first one gives a brief introduction then looks at SMB shares and how Windows PCs interatct with them. It shows how to create and connect to both public and private shares etc It goes through various problems that people have and the solutions to overcome them. But also it shows some useful tips such as adding features in the smb extras such as creating custom shares. Hope that you find this video interesting.
  8. Heres what to do if your isp blocks port 80 and you cant use http authentication to create your certificates. Also how to make a wildcard certificate.
  9. Yep that will be because there is no config file that uses that subdomain. Just edit a config file to direct to whichever container you want to access from outside.
  10. try passing through this aswell along with the other devices "
  11. The error that you get "internal error: qemu unexpectedly closed the monitor" what is after that. What is the complete message please.
