  1. Many thanks for your extensive investigation here. Having just spent over £500 on two 2TB nVME drives, i appreciate it!
  2. Hmm, honestly dude it just worked out of the box, no issues!
  3. Old thread but yes this is indeed a problem. My 2 year old Samsung 850 Pro SSD (which was used for cache for only 12 months!) has over 450TB written which effectively means the warranty is now void...
  4. Fixed - downloaded the latest ISO for Server 2019 and it's now working. Weird. 17763.737.190906-2324.rs5_release_svc_refresh_SERVER_EVAL_x64FRE_en-us_1
  5. Welcome Zack, here's to making a great product even better!!
  6. Hi, Trying to create a new Server 2019 VM (i've created VMs on unraid before..) I have chosen the install ISO, and also the virtio image, and when it gets to the part where you have to install the relevant drivers in order (followed from the official guide), it sees the driver and attempts to load, then says that no driver can be found (browsing to the balloon folder first) I've tried the BIOS as SeaBIOS and also OMVF, neither one will allow the driver to load and show the disk Any ideas? thanks
  7. I assume you've just watched Linus' latest video? As far as i'm aware, most free is straightforward, but fill up requires that minimum free space is set correctly on each share
  8. I was copying a file onto my server to SSD cache and noticed the speed jumping from 115MB/s down to 30MB/s and back constantly throughout the entire process Whilst checking netdata, it would appear than when the reads are low on the drive, the write speed is high and when the reads are high, the write speed plummets Is this indicative of SATA3 SSD simply being bandwidth starved (shown by disk utilisation being almost 100%) , and potentially something nVME would solve with its hugely increased IOPS? My SSD contains appdata (around 15 dockers), docker image and a single Windows Server 2019 VM Just a thought, i could be well off, but something must explain the massively fluctuating transfer speeds You can see in the Netdata snips below, the up and downs of the transfer. Interesting!
  9. These were down to £191 a few weeks back! Bought 14 of them!
  10. Ah OK cool, you're lucky then as I've had both of those issues!
  11. Are you aware what the issues are though, so you know what to look for?
  12. Personally, go for a Ryzen build (ASRock boards are excellent). I wouldn't touch Xeon, even if they are decent performers initially, it will drop as more and more security vulnerabilities are found. My Supermicro system with a Xeon was great initially, and as the security patches came out, performance noticeably plummeted Just to add, no performance issues at all on my Ryzen build Also, i would avoid Samsung SSDs in unRAID as there is an issue with them on the BTRFS filesystem which LT appear to be in no hurry to resolve (unless you are using a single drive with no plan to go cache pool, and are happy to format as XFS) Well done on paying off your loans too, you should both be very proud!
  13. eSata external enclosure is not really supported and will give you problems like you're getting As johnnie mentioned, you need a proper SAS controller If you don't want issues or problems, use recommended / supported hardware
