  1. Update: This problem was unrelated to MyServers plugin, this was just a symptom. My nginx was having issues and filling my logs, so I did a "/etc/rc.d/rc.nginx restart" and it seemed to resolve it thanks to this post: ----- I'm having tons of issues with accessing my WebGUI.. I'm not sure if it's related to the MyServers plugin or not but I'm seeing this: In console I'm seeing this: The WebUI just shows a perpetual loader: I did an "unraid-api restart" and got this: Unfortunately no change. In console I'm seeing this still:
  2. My new motherboard is this: Asus Prime H470 Plus CSM I'm pretty sure on my current Supermicro X10SLM-F, I'm using Legacy boot and not UEFI. I looked up manual of my new motherboard, and it says the following: "The new ASUS UEFI BIOS is a Unified Extensible Interface that complies with UEFI architecture, offering a user-friendly interface that goes beyond the traditional keyboard-only BIOS controls to enable a more flexible and convenient mouse input. You can easily navigate the new UEFI BIOS with the same smoothness as your operating system. The term "BIOS" in this user manual refers to "UEFI BIOS" unless otherwise specified." If new mobo doesn't support legacy bios, am I hosed?
  3. I have a server running unraid but am replacing the motherboard, CPU and ram. Reusing all existing components including drives and the LSI extension card. Is this just a matter of shutting down, installing new hardware and rebooting? Will unraid handle this all seamlessly? (If it matters, I’m switching from a Xeon E3 CPU and Supermicro motherboard to a Asus LGA1200 and Intel Core i5 10th Gen CPU)
  4. I'm in middle of researching upgrades and found this thread. Wanted to check in now 6+ months later with unraid upgrades amuck to see if this now works without hoop jumping.
  5. My Unraid server has evolved over time and my requirements don't fully apply anymore when I originally built it. At that time, I didn't have a GPU nor did I have a LSI RAID card. So I looked for a CPU with a built in GPU and a motherboard with a ton of SATA connectors since my Rosewill case has support for quite a few drives. 4 years ago, it was hard to find a motherboard that fit all the requirements. Lastly, I wanted IPMI support for remote administration. I ended up with: Motherboard: Supermicro X10SLM-F motherboard CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1246 v3 3.50GHz RAM: Crucial 32GB ECC RAM (4 x 8GB, PC3-12800) Since that build, I've added: LSI 9201-8i RAID card that was flashed to IT mode. I'm running 8 drives off of it, and the other 4 drives directly connected to my motherboard. NVIDIA Quadro P2000 GPU primarily for plex hardware acceleration I've been plagued with issues lately with bios chip problems on this motherboard. I've swapped the chip and while it runs fine, if I reboot, I have a 50% chance something is messed up and I have to jump through hoops to reset the bios (by shorter 2 pins on the motherboard), etc. It's a total pain. I looked to replace the motherboard with exactly the same one, but then it's like $300 due to it being older and shorter in supply. I'm hesitant to just buy another bios chip because I think there is something else wrong. Rather than mess with this still, I just want to fix it and upgrade at the same time to get more current with hardware. I'd love recommendations on what to look at. My usage is relatively light: Plex server, serving both local viewers and remote 2 VMs -- one for Home Assistant for all the automation in my house, and one Win10 that I use for a few random things when i need to run windows app NAS file storage for plex, photos, sync'ing google drive etc I run about 15 different dockers for a variety of things such as MQTT server, Radarr, Sonarr, nzbget Requirements: Replace both CPU and Motherboard Motherboard RAM support: While I'm not in a business environment, I figure ECC RAM isn't a bad thing to have, so would like to continue to use my RAM unless for some reason my ECC RAM isn't fast enough or something with changing requirements. So if I need to replace RAM I will, and looking for suggestions if I should not use ECC for some reason Motherboard size: My case will support up to E-ATX, so I'm good with basically any size Motherboard slots: Need at least one PCIe 3.0 x16 slot (for my Nvidia P2000) and one PCIe x8 slot (for my LSI). Motherboard SATA: At least 4 SATA connectors, but the more the better. IPMI support preferred but not a deal breaker if missing Gigabit LAN Built in USB port to plug small USB key into it for Unraid boot drive (I'm not sure what this port is exactly called but I'm sure all of you know what I mean). My first debate is whether to continue on the Xeon or go with the non-Xeon platform. In fact, should I just look at AMD now? I keep reading rave things about their latest CPUs.
  6. In my example where my setup is this: unraid server has IP of VM has IP of When connected via wireguard my unraid server is If i make the change to "Remote access to LAN", what is the IP of the VM? Is it just addressed with still and counts on no network conflict?
  7. I have wireguard setup with "Remote access to server" so my laptop can access my unraid server. I'm trying to understand how to access a VM that's running on unraid, but has it's own IP. For example, my unraid server has IP of and my VM has IP of For my wireguard tunnel and client setup, my unraid server then is accessible via How do I access the VM? Do I need to have it also connect as it's own Wireguard client? I'm confused because when I read the first post it talks about VMs being accessible but I'm not sure how that works exactly becuase how can my laptop (when I'm away from my LAN and connected via Wireguard) be able to access the VM without an addressable IP?
  8. I'm getting same error "Unable to connect to". I don't see anythign obviously wrong anywhere in my firewall.
  9. I noticed this entry come up occasionally in my syslog and wondering if it's anything to worry about. I'm not totally sure what it's indicating. The unraid system is not informing me of any SMART errors or anything on that drive which is in my 2 drive cache pool.

  10. I have a working Windows 10 VM that I've been running for months. I noticed a different option for the "network model" in VM options where I now see both "virtio" and "virtio-net" options. I was using "virtio". I wanted to experiment if this would help network perf by trying "virtio-net" but if I make that change the VM cannot start. My logs show this error: 2021-04-07T17:59:45.810300Z qemu-system-x86_64: -device pcie-pci-bridge,id=pci.6,bus=pci.1,addr=0x0: Bus 'pci.1' not found Any ideas what's going on?
  11. I’m having weird behavior when trying to update this. When I start the update process, My SMx1500 powers off, then back on. The display says something about firmware being updated for a few seconds then it powers off immediately. My windows laptop app is showing the progress at 7% with no additional progress even after waiting 5 mins. UPS still isn’t turning on.
  12. I answered my own question. The answer is Yes
  13. When you update the firmware on an APC UPS, I’ve got an SMT 1500 model, does it cut power to all connected devices at any point? Or is power continuous?
