  1. So it turns out that the CLI after setting up pfSense doesn't detect the other 2 NICs, but once I got into the GUI, I was able to enable each port and see that they worked, so if you run into this problem, just keep pushing forward into the next stages and check if things work after configuring things from the GUI.
  2. Hi all, I have a new one on the way and am looking at self-hosted baby tracking. I've been trying to figure out how to setup for quite some time now. Does anyone have any tutorials that may closely resemble the install method outlined under the Docker section of this github? I've tried going through community apps to install it by searching the Docker Hub, but it looks like that interface isn't able to access any of the parameters that need to be edited to make this work. I also watched SpaceInvaderOne's Jitsi installation video that uses docker-compose with hopes it would help me figure out what is happening with this docker, but it doesn't seem to fit the same format for configuration files. Anyone else out there that's a wizard with docker-compose willing to take a look at the instructions and point me in the right direction? Maybe even more documentation or videos to watch? As a last resort, I tried to install Docker for Windows on my unRaid Win10 VM, which was really a bad idea. It broke my VM until I could boot into it baremetal and strip Docker installation out and run CCleaner to remove residual files. Here are the instructions from babybuddy to save someone a click And the Dockerfile FROM python:3 as app ENV PYTHONUNBUFFERED 1 RUN pip install --upgrade pipenv gunicorn WORKDIR /app COPY Pipfile /app/ COPY Pipfile.lock /app/ RUN pipenv install --deploy --system ADD /app/ ADD api /app/api ADD babybuddy /app/babybuddy ADD core /app/core ADD dashboard /app/dashboard ADD reports /app/reports ADD static /app/static ADD etc/ /app/
  3. Well I'm running into the same problem, except 2 of the 4 interfaces are working. When I plug a cable into port 0 & port 1 (ports farther from PCIe pins on the card), I see blinking lights and can see the status change from down to up in the pfsense interface, but when I plug into ports 2 & 3, the link lights on the card go solid (green & orange) and pfsense does not change from down. Anyone else figure anything more out on this?
  4. What mouse do you use with your gaming VM? Do you have the ability to change your polling rate? I have been having TERRIBLE problems with my Logitech G500 (old, but trusty). I had the polling rate set at 500 through the Logitech Gaming Software. After reducing it down to 200, my issues have pretty much disappeared.
  5. Sorry, no. I purchased this from him in June.
  6. Hi, I recently setup a reserve proxy for some applications (Emby, nextcloud, etc) and have all of these working fine, but I am having trouble figuring out if I can reverse proxy into OpenVPN. I have DuckDNS setup and can access my OpenVPN connection using the duckdns address (let's call it, but my corporate network blocks access to My domain is setup as and I have CNAMEs setup like which does work from my corporate network. So with that, I'm trying to figure out if I can setup something like and have it point to OpenVPN correctly. I noticed there isn't a template .conf for letsencrypt to setup OpenVPN.
  7. Hey Jcloud, do you still have any codes hanging around? Thanks in advance.
  8. I haven't pulled the trigger yet, but was contemplating gambling a little and buying two kits of this:
  9. What's your setup? Do you have 4x16GB sticks running at 3200MHz? What processor are you rocking? Thanks in advance. I'm currently struggling with which RAM to pickup for my new build... The b-die stuff is pretty pricy relative to the CL16 stuff. I may be stressing too much about all this.
  10. Basically $200 off + a free 250GB SSD. Hope someone finds this useful If you're close to a Microcenter, you can pickup just the chip for $699 + tax as well.
  11. Thanks Jordanmw for the response. I appreciate the extra data point. I definitely I plan to do baremetal installs of Windows based on videos SpaceInvader's put up and then move them under unRAID. Have you experienced any issues with audio stutter/cutout? I've seen there have been some problems with others, but apparently most of those are resolved. Do you passthrough any of your NICs into your Windows VMs? I've seen that the board has all 3 NICs in the same IOMMU grouping and wasn't sure if that was an issue. Do you have any numbers on the amount of load you put on your PSU? I have a 1000VA/600W UPS right now and am thinking it's not going to cut it 0_o if this thing is working hard. Also, how's the heat coming off a beast like that? Have a dedicated AC unit just for it? I saw your post about the 2950x+Taichi last week and almost pulled the trigger on the 2920x version of it for $670, but held off Trying to decided if that was smart or not... there's always going to be another sale, right? At the moment I'm holding off on buying anything second-hand since if I'm going to be dropping the coin, I'd rather have less to deal with when warrantying things, thanks for the additional link though.
  12. I'm looking for some advice/sanity check on equipment for a new build. I'm looking to upgrade my existing unRAID Dell T20 E3-1225v3 32GB GTX1060 server AND my old custom Watercooled i7-2600k 32GB GTX1080 gaming system with a single unRAID system. My use case for this new system will be as follows: Dual GPU passthrough Win10 VMs for gaming and workstation for the wife Maybe a 3rd GPU for NVENC transcoding on an Emby Media Center docker My existing PERC H310 8 Port SAS controller to support up to 16 drives (existing 4TB, 8TB, and Cache SSDs) Other Misc dockers consisting of NZBGet, Sonarr, CouchPotato, HomeAssistant, Handbrake, etc. Remote terminal workstations for around the house (I'd like a system I can access from the garage so to browse the web, pull up media, and maybe play a game from there (not sure if that's really something I'd be doing much of) I've been eyeballing the Threadripper line with the hopes of grabbing a processor cheap with the new Ryzen 3000 line coming up(there have already been some deals for a 1900x for $200 + $250 for a ASRock Taichi, or a 2920x + Taichi for $670 recently). My initial thought was more cores/RAM so I can dedicate some to VMs as well as some to the Emby media server for transcoding, but I am not sure if this is going to be overkill for use case. I'm also concerned about the 180W TDP associated with the chip and generating excess heat in my media closet (I put in an exhaust vent to vent out the heat when things heat up already, but it doesn't run when just the server is on) I'll need to pick up a new waterblock and RAM, maybe 2x16GB (non-ECC probably) to start with which would still keep me around ~$1000 - $1200. I can pick up more RAM later to complete the quad channel DDR4 and a couple NVMe M.2 drives to migrate from my 2.5"SSDs. Otherwise maybe I wait til Ryzen 3000 comes out and pick up a 3800x (albeit with 4 less cores) that has a 105W TDP. Suspected build w/ sTR4 AMD Threadripper 2920x -$600 (hopefully on sale soon) ASRock Taichi (or similar depending on sales) $300ish (hopefully both for less) 32GB 2x16GB G.Skill Ripper V 3200Mhz C14 - $250 Custom Watercooling - EK Monoblock or similar. Already have a pump/reservoir/240 rad Existing equipment on hand EVGA GTX 1080 8GB FTW2 EVGA GTX 1060 6GB 1x Inland Premium 1TB NVMe PERC H310 in IT mode 6x 4TB WD Red 1x 8TB shucked WD Easystore White (Parity) 1x 4TB WD Red Pro (old parity drive) 4x misc 2.5" SSDs (180GB - 525GB) EVGA - PQ 750W 80+ Plat PSU 27" Dell S2716DGR 144Hz 2k G-Sync Tagan Black Pearl Full ATX case w/ 2 4x3.5in hot-swap bays
  13. Thanks for this post. I've been going crazy with 100s of orphaned images in my docker. May be worth putting a note about orphaned images in the Docker section since it seems to relate to the Docker Utilization FAQ part.
  14. Hi all, I received the following messages in the syslog last night (2:30AM Oct 30th) and I'm not really sure what the next step is from here. I ran a short SMART diagnostics on the drive and it didn't find anything wrong with the drive (Drive sdg in attached diagnostic log). So I'm curious if this is something that may have been a fluke or if there is some way to restore the Parity drive to functional and then try writing to these registers to test if it is truly bad.
