  1. 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 hurts to see it fall apart - let's stay united and kind. Again, we are better than this.
  2. What do your temps look like? Considering things can get pretty hot when parity check kicks in, i am curious. This definitely looks great!
  3. No, you need to boot the EFI shell via UEFI. Format your USB to FAT32 and put the shell on the root of the device then boot the shell, there should be an option in the bios to do so. https://superuser.com/questions/1057446/how-do-i-boot-to-uefi-shell NOTE: Prior to proceeding with the firmware downgrade, please review the differences between MBR and UEFI boot mechanisms and review how you can boot an EFI shell.
  4. lsi-flash-efi.zip This works in EFI via the attached efi shell.
  5. -- What is inside? I like the case. Can you break it down into parts ? Much appreciated.
  6. Here is a good example of a decent deal: SuperMicro X9SCL Motherboard w/ Intel Xeon E3-1240 v2 & I/O Shield - $99USD : https://www.ebay.com/itm/264691578596 Supermicro X9SCL-F Motherboard w/ Intel Xeon E3-1230v2 3.30GHz 16GB ECC Ram IPMI $135 https://www.ebay.com/itm/193287716939 Supermicro X10SLL-F Motherboard w/ Xeon E3 1240v3 3.4Ghz CPU 16G ECC ram and HSU $187 https://www.ebay.com/itm/193254364339
  7. My systems are not fancy either. We are talking about something along the lines of X9SCL + 16GB DDR3 ECC RAM + E3 1245L + 9211 8i HBA. These are not expensive setups, you can find these pretty cheap on ebay. Money is money and remember, if you go super cheap - that won't last either. Strike the right balance. There are systems that take years to build as you buy it piece by piece through out the year, also do note - migrating from system to another system is pretty seamless process - take the usb and plug it in a new system (more or less should work out of the box there as well).
  8. When I first joined the unRAID family, I also was thinking about discounts and promotions. Then I used the software for a few years watching the community thrive, provide support and developers listen to the community and address issues, review suggestions and then deliver. I think by now I own 5 pro licenses and I could not be happier, even if I do not need the full fledged license, I still bought it to support the project and the endless hours the developers put in to support the community. We have to think about the time that the devs put in into R&D, most people only want to see the results - but behind each success story is the 'blood and tears' in making it work, making it stable and reliable. Anyways, welcome to the community! After years of using unRAID for a handful of use-cases - I can say with a high degree of confidence, you will love it. Do note, this solution will probably won't do EVERYTHING you wish for, but it will do most: - Docker containers - VMs - Reliable Array And always remember, the 'simple' is the new 'fancy'. Whichever solution you decide to build, should be well documented and well operated. For critical data always have two backups and a contingency plan if something goes down, hence potentially buying another unRAID server license to have a back-up setup for critical data should suffice. I have an unRAID server that is mostly 'off' and I do a monthly 'rsync' of critical documents and pictures. Cheers!
  9. I hope you folks understand that you are buying a 'lifetime' license with free upgrades - I don't think this gets any better than this. When you put it in perspective of what the OS will be like in 5-10 years - think about the investment now.
  10. Beta22 already? Man you guys are working fast. And that's a major release, kudos to the diligence done in testing and fixes!

  12. Thanks, I'll give it a shot. For now I managed to get python2 to automatically re-install using the following procedure: -- 1) Create custom init.d script for the docker container: /config/custom-cont-init.d/python2.sh 2) Add content: #!/bin/bash echo "**** installing python2 ****" apk add --no-cache python2 3) chmod it: chmod +x /config/custom-cont-init.d/python2.sh -- Reference: https://blog.linuxserver.io/2019/09/14/customizing-our-containers/ Cheers.
  13. Are you sure? -- # apk add python2 fetch http://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/v3.12/main/x86_64/APKINDEX.tar.gz fetch http://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/v3.12/community/x86_64/APKINDEX.tar.gz (1/1) Installing python2 (2.7.18-r0) Executing busybox-1.31.1-r16.trigger OK: 113 MiB in 52 packages --
  14. Please add python2 back to support legacy plugins. apk add python2 Thanks.
