  1. I hadn't seen this! You developers keep raising the bar and I can't keep up sometimes 🙂 Thank you - I will have a look. I had previously been using he Libvert HotPlug USB plugin but that needed me to physically add the devices each time which caused me a few issues when I was at work and the kids needed the computer! Could save me buying a new MB. Thank you
  2. I currently have a B450 Tomahawk Max with a Ryzen 7 3700x and have successfully been running two VMs (MacOS and Win 10) that can be used simultaneously with two graphics cards, monitors keyboards etc. My use situation is the two monitors / keyboards are used to dock work laptops but then I have a keyboard switch on each to allow the same keyboard / mouse to be used on a VM under Unraid. As the VM's don't really cope with hot plugging of USB devices properly I need the USB controller passed through to each machine. Recently I got an Oculus Rift and a PCIe USB card which
  3. I am a Mac user and have restored my flash drive a couple of times from backups on my Mac but it is a location being offered by unraid not a file as below in the image. I will have a look at the flash drive and see if it is shown on there somehow ?
  4. I was swapping over my graphics cards and may have knocked something in the case but after a couple of reboots (changing vfio settings), my system died. A HDD failed, which I am in the process of rebuilding onto a new matched drive so that part is ok.. My cache drive also seemed to drop out of existence. After checking cables etc it seems to have reappeared as an unmounted drive. If I stop the array I have the option of selecting it as the '._cache' or 'cache' drive. I have not noticed the '._cache' option before.... Either one tells me that the drive does n
  5. I am running an OSX VM on an SSD under UnRaid. I would like to back up some of my files (not the whole VM) to the array and then on to a Synology NAS as a sort of three location backup (icloud / OS X, array, Synology NAS). The array to NAS is fine - there are plenty of options and I am happy with that part. Initially I was looking at mounting the array into the VM and then using something like chronosync to back up the files but it seems to put quite a load on the VM.... then I thought about time machine but backing up a time machine image to the NAS makes me nervous as
  6. I'd not thought about going to 6Gb. For some reason my mind works 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 for RAM! Thanks - I will give it a go. Mind you, I am not kidding myself and realise that there will be an update in the not too distant future...
  7. I am at a bit of a cross roads and would appreciate some advice. I currently run unraid on an i7 3770 Cpu and 16gb RAM. I have one OS X VM and a few dockers of which Plex is the heaviest used. I have found my memory is close to saturation point now (8gb allocated to the VM) so would like to add some more. However my mb only supports 16gb and i think the 3770 is possibly up there at the top of the compatibility list for the mb. So it is time to upgrade, but I am torn between finding a board that takes 32gb RAM and keeping everything else the
  8. And that seems to be what it was! Thank you - I was becoming code blind staring at my XML trying to work out which but I had forgotten to change. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hi, I did yes and was under the impression that it was just the bottom 'devices' section that needed to be added back in having watched a couple of his videos. I will go and do a bit more reading on his topic and see if I have missed something. Thank you
  10. Please could someone try and point me in the right direction with this - I am pulling what little hair I have left out 😞 My system is: Unraid 6.8.2 M/B: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. CM6330_CM6630_CM6730_CM6830_M11AA Version Rev x.0x BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. Version 0704. Dated: 04/17/2013 CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz HVM: Enabled IOMMU: Enabled Memory: 16 GiB DDR3 (max. installable capacity 16 GiB) Kernel: Linux 4.19.98-Unraid x86_64 GPU: Sapphire AMD Radeon RX 470 Diagnostics file is attached.
  11. Did you ever get to the bottom of this - I am in the same position. I set up an OSX VM using VNC and it worked. Installed an AMD RX470 card and passed it through and get a blank screen. Switch back to VNC and I get the above "Guest has not...." error. The OSX VM will not boot - I have splash top installed and it never gets that far 😞 VM logs show the same last four lines as above...
  12. I am running the LetsEncrypt docker and access a couple of dockers on my UNRAID server using https. I have now set up a Raspberry Pi with HomeAssistant on it and would like to be able to access it securely but am a bit confused about the whole ssl thing. Can I just copy the certificate across to the RPi from my UNRAID Server and then port forward on my router or do I need to run another instance of LetsEncrypt on the RPi? If I can copy it, is there an easy way to automate it every time the UNRAID docker upgrades? I have tired a bit of googlefu but I am not sure what I
  13. It really depends how many cameras you have and what sort of settings you use. I don't use the docker (I had a few problems getting it set up) but use a VM running Ubuntu Server 16.04 and a clean install of ZoneMinder 1.30. I have an AMD Phenom II X4 945 CPU and have allocated 1 core and 1GB RAM to the VM. My ZM has two IP cameras running at 1280 x 720 as Modect with a couple of zones each. My load very rarely goes over 0.6 (shown in ZM and reflected by the core use on the UnRaid dashboard). I would assume you will get similar results with a docker (but prob
  14. My current unRAID box consists of an ASUSTeK M3N78-VM motherboard with 8GB RAM and an AMD Phenom II X4 945 @ 3000. I run 9 dockers - Plex, a couple of downloaders etc , crashplan and OpenVPN and also run a Ubuntu VM dedicated to Zoneminder. Most of the time, everything seems to run fine, and upgrading my cache disk to an SSD made quite a difference to the snappiness of Plex. Occasionally the CPU maxes out but I think that has been when plex has been streaming to one device and transcoding / syncing to another which is pretty rare. It seems to cope with two streams at once seems ok.
  15. Can I just say I had very little sleep last night...... At least you have saved me trying for hours to work out what the conflict was
