  1. I'll also try the 2 hp workstations I have and see what happens just for "fun." I never use GUI mode because I don't have a use case for it, but now I'm very interested!
  2. (I'm reading through this pre-coffee), all very interesting because I run 2 ml30 g9's without issue but have never booted them into GUI mode. I will try it this weekend when one of them is not in use and try to confirm the behavior though I'm sure it will occur. I vaguely recall getting intermittent errors related to video output on one or two previous HP servers I've used Unraid on, but. I don't remember which ones specifically. I don't recall it causing shutdown issues either, but that doesn't mean its not a problem. iLo seems to rear an issue every now and then on Unraid but usually nothing this drastic.
  3. I bought an isobox studio 20u used on eBay about a year ago and love it for all my stuff. Recently replaced all the fans with Noctua NF-F12 iPPC 3000 and a different fan controller. I keep 1 server plus a workstation computer, jbod enclosure, and a monster 220v backup in it and run about 8-10f more than ambient. The low hum of the fans is glorious vs the whine of the electronics. https://www.soundconstructionsupply.com/isobox-studio/
  4. I've used h220 cards for years and they have no issues. Running 2 right now.

  6. each one of them are like cherished children. so special.... until the next comes along....
  7. I just put in an rx 590 8gb gigabyte card in a Catalina vm about 2 weeks ago. Was on sale! Doesn't have the reset bug as it is switched between Catalina and win 10 every few days without rebooting the server.
  8. It’s a toss up between what I like most: 1: LimeTech is responsive to the community 2: the community is a fantastic support apparatus the thing I’d like to see added actually demonstrates the first point because it is going to be added: multiple cache polls! (Maybe I should say all ssd array instead?)
  9. I had this issue and resolved it by uninstalling the Nvidia driver, shutting down the vm, and then only passing through the video only, no audio, from the card. You may have to use acs functions to split your card into separate iommu groups. Upon restart, it works as expected minus GPU sound, but I'm using something else for that anyways so it wasn't a big deal. there may be a better way to resolve this though.
  10. your loader and nvram files are wrong. they changed when you changed ram amounts. they should point to the files in the macinabox folder.
  11. I think that use to be correct, but plex has gotten better at reading a RAM disk size. I use to use one exclusively until I started using the dvr, which needs a scratch disk the size of the recording (which is big for football games.) sometimes when setting up a RAM disk for the first time, plex may crash the stream filling it up, but then never exceeded it again. Sometimes it reads the size right the first time and there are no problems.
  12. something in your setup isn't configured correctly is my guess. I use utm 9 and had to watch a couple videos to get all my traffic setup properly and have to constantly remember that the https port is 4444.... did you setup your traffic routing to allow wan access to anywhere, including internet traffic? there are so many variables which is why sophos, while a great product, is also a pita.
  13. Did you setup sophos correctly? By default it doesn’t respond to pings and doesn’t allow any traffic at all. also set your gateway as the sophos device
  14. you are probably using vmxnet3. change to e1000-82545em
