  1. A series of videos about creating and using encrypted disks using the unassigned devices plugin. How to format disks How to mount disks How to use multiple encrypted disks at once with different keyfiles Auto mounting using unassigned devices scripts Using encrypted disks with multiple paritions Hope its useful
  2. So this is a three part series of videos on using encrypted unassigned disks on your server. Part 1 - Is the basics - How to easily format an unassigned encrypted disk using the cach swap technique. How to use unassigned encrypted disk on a server which doesn't have an encrypted array. And basic mounting. Part 2 Is more advanced. Showing how to easily mount any encrypted drive. How to mount and use multiple encrypted unassigned disks with different key-files. And how to automount disks easily. Part 3 goes onto how to create unassigned encrypted disks with multiple partitions. And how to create and format encrypted drives from the command line. **part 3 up in a day or 2** Hope its useful
  3. Hi @Nick_J glad that its working. One quick thing that you can try too is check if write cache is enabled on the drives. On the webui you will see each disk has an id ie sdb sde sdf etc For each disk use this command. Example here is for my disk sdb hdparm -W /dev/sdb If it doesn't say write-caching on for the drive as above. You can enable it by using command hdparm -W 1 /dev/sdb
  4. Let me know the exact model and make of the gpu and i will send you an edited vbios to use with the card.
  5. Few things to try. Can you try running a vm with just one GPU only in the system the 980ti. Have that GPU in slot one and see if that way it runs ok. Here is the vbios for your card that downloaded from here. https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/173726/asus-gtx980ti-6144-150618 i have already hex edited it. Please try passing this with it. Asus.GTX980Ti.6144.150618.rom The gtx 650 the card that you have may or may not support uefi. If you can only start machine with seabios for that card ,then the gpu doesnt support uefi. You can fix that If your card is the 2gig version. i found a uefi vbios herehttps://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/157807/palit-gtx650-2048-131018 and also have hex edited this one too. With this passed through (if yours is 2 gig version and not 1gig ) it should allow you to use ovmf bios rather than seabios. Palit.GTX650.2048.131018.rom Also what does your iommu groups look like? Lastly I have found issues like this can be bios related in the mb. You could try updating the bios ( or even sometimes downgrading the bios) and it may help.
  6. Try removing gpu 3 Use gpu 1 with unraid/vm1 (You will need to passthrough vbios for it to work with vm when primary gpu - see here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IP-h9IKof0 Then use gpu 2 with vm 2 See how that goes. Also please give more info on hardware. Also your iommu groups etc. Just post a diags file from /Tools/Diagnostics
  7. Just as jonathanm said -- Config folders can be swapped from stick to stick, just keep the key file with the physical stick it belongs to. So just follow this procedure. 1./ On the new machine register from the trial to the plus 2./ Shutdown both servers. 3./ Put flash drive from old server (basic key one) into a pc. 4./ Make folder called old server 5./ a/ Copy the config folder from the usb flash drive of old server into the old server folder. b. delete config folder from the flash drive c/ open the config folder (in old server folder on desktop) and copy the basic key into the old server folder (After which make sure that it isnt in the config file that it was moved not copied) 6. remove flash drive 7./ Now put the flash drive in from new server (plus key one) 8./ make folder called new server. 9./ a/ copy the config folder to new server folder. b. delete config folder from the flash drive c/ open the config folder (in new server folder on desktop) and move the plus key into the new server folder (After which make sure that it isn't in the config file that it was moved not copied) Now each flash drive has no config folder (as deleted) and you have the config folder on your desktop in the old server and new server folders along with their keys. 10/ Now move the basic key from the oldserver folder into the config folder in the new server folder 11 ./ Move the plus key from the new server folder into the config folder of the old server folder. Now the flash drive (which was originally from the new server) should still be in the pc. Now move the config folder from the old server folder onto this flash drive. Remove drive. Now this flash drive has a plus key and the config of your oldserver. Put this key in old server and start up. Now put the old servers original flash drive into the pc and copy the config folder from the new server folder into the flash drive. This now has the config for the new server but with the basic key. Put in new server and start the server. If for any reason the server doesn't boot. Put flash drive in a pc and run the file makebootable.bat (but i dont think you should have to do this.)
  8. Here is a video that shows what to do if you have a data drive that fails and you want to swap/upgrade it and the disk that you to replace it is larger than your parity drive. So this shows the swap parity procedure. Basically you add the new larger drive then have Unraid copy the existing parity data over to the new drive. This frees up the old parity drive so it can then be used then to rebuild the data of the failed drive onto the old parity drive. Hope this is useful
  9. The users section is where you can create users. These users then can be assigned permissions as to wether or not they can access the various shares that you have on the server (should you want to do so.) Also here you can set a password for the root user which is highly recommended. After which to access the Unraid webui ssh etc you will need to enter the username root and password what you have set. The other users set up here will not have access to the webui etc their permissions are only used for the security setting for connecting to the shares. Edit -- I really should read the question before answering! Didn't see the dashboard part lol !!
  10. Just one thing to check. As you are using Ryzen CPU , if you haven't already, then you will need to make a change to your go file or the server can freeze up which maybe yours is doing. The go file is on the flash drive in the config folder You need to add this line /usr/local/sbin/zenstates --c6-disable So then the go file should look like this. #!/bin/bash # Start the Management Utility /usr/local/sbin/zenstates --c6-disable /usr/local/sbin/emhttp & Hope that helps
  11. Hi @sibi78 So you want to use some security cams on your server. I wouldn't use a vm to do what you want to. I would suggest using the docker container shinobi. Its very very good in my opinion. Its very light weight and doesn't use much resources. I have mine recording to an old unassigned drive in the server (so i am not recording to the array and avoiding wear on that). But if you want to use 2 vms with the same physical disk passed through then you can. You would pass the disk though by using its disk id. open terminal and type ls /dev/disk/by-id That will show you your disks by their id. for example here is what one of mine looks like so to passthrough a whole disk all partitions to one vm you would add the location like this. Just set location to manual then add this but with your disk id. /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD30EFRX-68EUZN0_WD-WCC4N0ZDV2PF With this you could first pass this disk to a live gparted instance then partition up the disk Then after you can passthrough each partition to different vms (installing the os on each partition) you can pasthrough individual partitions by adding -partx x being the number of the partition for example you would use this for the location of partition 1 /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD30EFRX-68EUZN0_WD-WCC4N0ZDV2PF-part1 and if you had a second partition you would add it like this /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD30EFRX-68EUZN0_WD-WCC4N0ZDV2PF-part2 and so on and son on for each partition that you had created. But dont have 2 vms running and try and passthrough the same partition to both. But i would really suggest giving Shinobi a try. I have been meaning to finish a video for it that i started making months ago then kinda forgot about it and did something else. But i'm glad that your post has reminded me that I must finish it off
  12. Yeah thats definitely a long time..... I am guessing that this may be due to op having the drive connected by usb. If his harddrive usb connector is only a usb 2.0 and not 3.0. So if say the usb 2.0 data transfer is about 30mbs then 2TB would take about 21 hours.
  13. I wouldnt use that myself because that drive is going to be old. There is a review here from 2013 so the ebay drive linked, may well of had upto 6 years of use. https://www.storagereview.com/fusionio_iodrive2_mlc_application_accelerator_review_12tb Also a modern nvme drive such as the samsung 970 evo plus is a faster drive. Also the Fusion-io ioDrive2 may well run under the published specs for the drive unless the PCIe power limit threshold is raised from the standard 25 watts https://www.dell.com/support/article/uk/en/ukdhs1/how12260/setting-the-device-wattage-level-on-a-sandisk-fusion-io-iodrive2-to-improve-performance?lang=en Also take into consideration that the 970evo nvme 1tb drive uses only 6 watts.
  14. Hey Nick. Glad that you haven't lost your data Yeah your right, the rebuild has started to reconstruct the data onto the 6tb and so has built the indexes to the files but nothing else. So yeah just reformat the drive and then copy the data across. If you didn't figure on how to reformat the 6tb then use unassigned devices plugin to delete the partition. 1. Goto the settings of the unassigned devices plugin and set it to destructive mode. 2. Stop the array. 3. Set the slot with the 6tb drive to unassigned. 4. the 6tb drive will show up as an unassigned device. 5. delete the partition 6. Now you can either (i) format the drive using unassigned devices to whatever filesystem that you want. ( I would use xfs as that is now the Unraid defualt for array drives). (ii) Only delete the partition then when drive back in array Unraid will format it as the current defualt set for the drives in settings/disk settings. 7. Go back to where you set the 6tb drive slot in the array to be unassigned and add the 6tb disk back to that slot. 8 goto tools/newconfig and this time set preserve current assignments to be all and apply 9. start the array . Again cancel parity sync until the data is safety copied across from the 2 tb then do a parity sync.
  15. You say that you had to add the card by editing xml. It is easier if you stub it in the syslinux.conf then you can add in webui under other pci device add this to your syslinux file after the initrd=/bzroot then reboot the server and you will see the usb card in the vm template. vfio-pci.ids=1b6f:7023 add this by on main tab clicking on flash the you will see the syslinx.conf and edit it adding the above and will look a bit like below default menu.c32 menu title Lime Technology, Inc. prompt 0 timeout 50 label Unraid OS menu default kernel /bzimage append initrd=/bzroot vfio-pci.ids=1b6f:7023 I am not sure about the usb card that you have but dont see why it wouldnt work as it it in its own iommu group. You would be better posting this in the vm section of the forum as more people will see it there who may be able to help.
