  1. Added 9211-8i to the list. Instructions: -- @blakeslade, please see above for 9211-8i. lsi-flash-efi-20210130.zip
  2. Yes. If it is a local network - no issue. If it has to connect to external sources, you might have a dependency on VMs and remote connectivity.
  3. You want to make sure you avoid circular dependencies and shoot yourself in a foot. If your unRAID is also hosting VMs such as pfsense which is used for internet access, you might end up offline and with array offline.
  4. As a rule of thumb, you also want to make sure you have a UPS setup to provide sufficient power for a graceful shutdown of your devices.
  5. That is very odd, are you sure something is not wrong with your setup?
  6. If you are not concerned with having the keyfile on the server's USB stick, then you can modify the 'go' file to automatically copy the file to auto decrypt the array. I used an image (which I obviously backed up). Copy the file to /boot/config/keyfile Create a 'go' entry to copy the file from /boot/config/keyfile to /root/keyfile -- # cat /boot/config/go #!/bin/bash # Start the Management Utility /usr/local/sbin/emhttp & cp /boot/config/keyfile /root/keyfile
  7. Can you be more specific? What vulnerabilities are you referring to you referring to? Vulnerabilities are ranked differently based on the complexity, feasibility of the execution and impact on Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability (aka CIA) . And you measure your own risks, @limetech addresses appropriates risks in a timely fashion as we've seen in the past. I'd like to get more context around this, what are you eluding to and what risks do you need mitigated.
  8. Prices are in CAD. The drive average is 16K-19K Hours. There 3-4 drives that had 27K hours, I'll dig those up separately and let you know if the hours are a concern (Do note that these drives are MTBF of 1,000,000+ Hours). All WD Gold 4TB Drives are 16K-19K range. No warranty remaining, these were purchased through the partner program and only had 1 year to begin with. However, using KillDisk does a thorough erase with confirmation so the drives completed the procedure OK.
  9. You should be fine, even the slow down doesn't kick in right away. They give you leeway for a bit before they enforce it.
  10. Mostly pictures, videos and documents (filled out applications, signed documents, personal files, work files, etc). Duplicati creates a local db (index) of the files you have encrypted, sliced into smaller chunks and uploaded to the cloud. It is your responsibility to backup duplicati data, without it you'd be dead in the water. Is it reliable? I haven't had issues until I pushed over 40TB for testing of (large) bogus content. At that time I noticed that if the backup was interrupted it had difficulties restarting. Now if you want turn-key solution, backbla
  11. I think they drop it down to 10mbit. I have stress tested it and uploaded 30TB at some point, they can hold it alright. In either case, even if the speeds are reduced for uploads, they are still bearable for the uploads. At the end of the day, it is what you value most that you should invest in most. My backups are incremental and therefore the speed reduction hasn't really impacted my ability to backup critical data as it runs over night and the chunks are not that big.
  12. Since we are talking about cloud backups: unRAID -> duplicati (+ AES 256 encryption) -> jottacloud (unlimited @ $99/yr)
  13. Upgraded my array, these drives are in a good condition and have been fully tested and fully wiped using kill disk.

  14. Let's work together to repair this relationship. I love this community and what unRAID has become. Seeing it evolve over a decade shows the strength of this one united large family. Let's fix this, we are better than that. I have re-read the comments and although they are good points, this does not help us re-unite. @limetech, came through and did the initial steps with a public apology attempting to repair the relationship and yes, wounds do not heal overnight, but it is a two-way street. I cannot repair it, but from a community member perspective, it hurt
