  1. Wow, that is quite the changelog! Awesome! Will begin testing immediately...
  2. Just installed 6.7.0-rc7... It has a blank button right next to the power button on the webui... When pressed, this adds a "flyout" effect with nothing in it... Removing the System Buttons plugin removes the button...
  3. You have both systems setup to consume nearly 100% of available physical ram, unfortunately lock ups are the expected behavior when you do that... It is not actually locking up, it is trying to use your swapfile like RAM, because the fact that it is a swapfile is not told to the VM's... This can cause all kinds of processes to have a timeout cascade... If you really need to not upgrade the RAM on your system, then set the VM's to use much less physical RAM, and setup swapfiles in the individual VM's... However there is no real substitute for just having the free RAM to begin with...
  4. Everything on Linux is a file, its very different from windows that way... If you don't want to point it at: /mnt/cache/domains/Windows/vdisk1.img then point it at something like this instead: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-Hitachi_HDS5C3030ALA630_MJ1321YNG06KNA this points it to the devices folder, selects a block device disk, and this is important, it selects it "by-id" so that if you ever change your partitions or drives it doesn't break where the VM is pointing... there are others, you can select by several others, check out what you have in your /dev/disk/ folder on the UnRaid host... Be Careful, Linux will happily let you specify the wrong one and let you overwrite an important data drive, so double-check you got the correct one...
  5. Here is a review I found on the amazon page for your motherboard: https://www.amazon.com/Supermicro-X9DAI-LGA2011-USB3-0-Motherboard/dp/B007HVZBWM#customerReviews Bottom line, this appears to be a motherboard issue... There is a 3.3 Version of your BIOS (you currently have 3.2) this may or may not help... https://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Xeon/C600/X9DAi.cfm (Then click update BIOS)
  6. You need to pass in all the devices in the IOMMU group, in your case, it means you need to pass in: 1002:aab0] 02:00.1 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Cape Verde/Pitcairn HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 7700/7800 Series]
  7. Best option with VM sound issues is almost always to just get a USB sound card that does what you want it to do, and pass that in...
  8. Could be a large number of things, unfortunately you haven't posted any info about your system, not even if the VM is Linux or FreeBSD or Windows 98... Please add the Diagnostics file from your UnRaid host (WebGui-->Tools-->Diagnostics-->Download) And the XML file from your VM (WebGui-->VM's-->Edit the VM-->Switch from Form View To XML View-->Copy everything there to a text file and add it here also)
  9. ********************************************* EDIT: Turns out my system really is having a GPU issue, will deal with RMA and retest this fix... ********************************************* Adding this caused several other issues... It booted but was glitchy at first, but still didn't allow bluetooth usb passthrough... During playing a game with it on it suddenly crashed out, and the VM would no longer boot, it seems it breaks my daily driver Win10 VM with the webgui error message: Execution error internal error: Unknown PCI header type '127' Which from what I can see on other posts means that it is not able to do GPU passthrough correctly anymore: At first I thought I had killed my video card somehow (didn't think it could be bluetooth related), and tried several things to fix the issue, manually rebuilding the VM XML, didn't work, completely rebuilding the libvirt image and then manually rebuilding the VM's xml's didn't help either.. I decided just for troubleshooting that I would undo the bluetooth settings: append fbcon=rotate:1 module_blacklist=bluetooth,btbcm,btintel,btrtl,btusb BIND=01:00.0 pci=noaer initrd=/bzroot and switched it back to: append fbcon=rotate:1 BIND=01:00.0 pci=noaer initrd=/bzroot and after a reboot, I was able to get my daily driver back... I have attached a diagnostics and vm xml file from just before switching off the blacklist in sysconfig and rebooting... qw-diagnostics-20190324-1905.zip war.xml
  10. Prime95 uses a part of your CPU called AVX or AVX2... This puts so much stress on the CPU that most motherboards have a setting in their BIOS to UnderClock the CPU when it detects an AVX workload... Prime95 is an unrealistic CPU stress test for this reason... By default my motherboard BIOS drops 200Mhz off the clocks, and I have my overclock set to drop 300Mhz off the clock intentionally just for testing with Prime95... On my motherboard this is called "AVX instruction core negative offset [Auto] [1-31]"... Something like 3DMark is a much better CPU test for this reason... Overclock for normal load stability first, then downclock from there for AVX load stability...
  11. Here is some consolation... The new AMD Thread Ripper and Epyc chips are basically multi socket CPU's in a single CPU, and I am sure Intel is not too far off from the same sort of thing... The rest of us will need learn this stuff soon anyway, you will just be ahead of us 😛
  12. Hazards of having a server grade dual socket board... You need to become an I.T. Admin to be able to run all the cool things on it 😛
  13. It is also possible to manually edit the XML for the VM to make what ever configuration of NUMA nodes you wish, basically make what ever kind of processor you wish, as long as windows kernel knows what you want... https://libvirt.org/formatdomain.html#elementsNUMATuning I would recommend search for "NUMA" on that page, and seeing all the different settings you can configure...
  14. Some of those use the ones that are part of the motherboard, which usually has the same issues as using the ports that come with the motherboard... This is the one that I use: Inateck KT5001 PCI-E to USB 3.0 5-Port PCI Express Card and 15-Pin Power Connector, Red https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FPIMJEW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Works very well, and supplies power which is something you need to consider, the power coming from your motherboard is not going to be able to light up all the stuff you plug in, so you will either need to get a powered USB hub and plug that in, or get one that taps power off from the power supply directly... This one also has a second internal header, so you can connect up some of your front panel case ports to it to pass them also (on mine this is 2 ports on the front, 5 in the back, you will not find a card that does better than 7)
  15. It can be possible, but the short answer is "don't"... Get a separate card instead... Some motherboards have several separate "cards" mine has 3, one 3.1 Motherboard header, one 3.1 on the rear, and one 3.0/2.0 running most of the remaining ports on the back... One controller needs to remain to be able to run the UnRaid USB thumb drive, and on my motherboard the remaining 2 other controllers have issues with IOMMU groups and don't passthrough very well... I can still pass the individual devices, but that basically requires that they be permanently connected and never change... Ok for some devices, but not all... The best way to get them to act like a normal controller is to pass a controller of its own to the VM... You may get lucky and your motherboard may have more than one controller, and one of those controllers my be passable to the VM...
