  1. I'm having an issue with my motherboard temps being very high. I originally posted this in the General tab, and it was recommended to post here... My typical idle temps, are 45c CPU, and 57-60c mobo. This by itself feels high. If I have 1 or 2 plex streams running, temps may raise a degree or 2, but nothing that worries me. The issue comes whenever I start a Win10 VM. It is a basic web browsing VM that my wife RDPs to from a chromebook so she can work in a windows ecosystem. It has 4 cores, and 6 GB RAM. Whenever it is running, my temps go up to 60c CPU and 80c mobo, and hold there until I stop the VM, and almost immediately drop back to 50 / 70. I am using the Dynamix System Temp plugin. I used the auto-driver download and it has me on coretemp jc42 drivers. My disk temps mostly idle between 25c-35c. Cache SSD spikes sometimes if I am moving a lot of data and forget to turn off cache. Please see below snapshots for other server / system details. I would really appreciate any feedback on this issue. Its been frustrating me because I.mnot comfortable leaving my VM always on, which i would like to be able to do so my wife doesn't have to tell me when she needs to use it. Case: Rosewill 4u 15 bay - stock fan setup. https://www.rosewill.com/product/rosewill-rsv-l4500-4u-rackmount-server-case-or-chassis-15-internal-bays-8-cooling-fans-included/ I am using the Sensor MB Temp from the available list below.
  2. Thanks for the reply. Atttached below is a screenshot of the options I have when I choose a sensor - I am using the sensor for MB Temp. The labelling from the driver is incorrect if that is not the correct sensor for MB temps.

  4. Solved my own issue. needed to update my port fowarding (changed port by mistake when installing new version) and update config.php to accept the DNS address as trusted domain.
  5. I had the same versioning issue as most here - Once I was upgraded to 16, everything seemed to work, until i tried to access in my android app. It seems now that my DNS is no longer being recognized. I can connect on my local network with the IP:port, but when i try to connect (local or not) with my DynDNS:port i am getting a "The Server took too long to respond" error. I never made any changes in nextcloud previously to use the DNS. It is configured on my unraid server to use for any traffic (I know it is worked, as my OpenVPN is using it as well and I can connect with no problems.) Is there some issue with Nextcloud and using DDNS, rather than IP? I have tried a few different nextcloud apps, all get the same error. Also does not work from a browser, so there is clearly something wrong with the request being passed through the DDNS to Nextcloud.

    Server Advice

    Hi all - I have been using unRaid for a few years now on an old PC build that I had gathering dust. It is running an AMD Phenom Quad Core 2200 with 8 GB RAM (DDR2, it is OLD). As I use it primarily as a Plex Server, and NAS backup for files, pics, videos, etc, it has been holding up well. Starting to out grow it now - No more room for drives, and it really isnt able to run VMs, which I would like to do. I was looking at used server hardware on ebay, and a few things caught me eye...But I have ZERO experince with real server hardware, so I need to be sure that these things will work before I buy. For Example, I like the look of the below dell poweredve r510... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-PowerEdge-R510-2x-Xeon-X5675-3-06GHZ-16GB-2x8GB-RAM-Server-NO-HDD/392089123683?epid=513019832&hash=item5b4a553b63%3Ag%3AWrAAAOSw4-1bWJwQ%3Asc%3AUSPSPriority%2120187%21US%21-1&_sacat=0&_nkw=dell+poweredge+r510&_from=R40&rt=nc&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1311.R11.TR12.TRC2.A0.H0.Xdell+poweredge.TRS0 Would I be able to buy some sleds, and move my existing drives into this server, and be up and running? Are there things I should watch out for when shopping for a server? Any advice is appreciated.
  7. Thanks for the advice. I am going to hunt down some old DDR2 RAM to see if that fixes the issue.
  8. Thanks for taking a look...I'm not doing a lot on it... No VMs, Only Dockers are Plex, openvpn, MySQL, No-IP, OwnCloud. Could the video be steaming from Plex? That is the only thing I could think of that would utilize video. Ill try a memtest tonight, then bump up to 8 GB if needed. What confuses me why this is popping up now. I have not made any changes to my server in the last 6 weeks. For 4 weeks, it ran with no issues and crashes. Now in the last 2 weeks it has started crashing, on a more frequent basis (ran for 4 days, then 3 days, then crashed in less than 1 day).
  9. Over a month ago I was having issues with frequent crashes and issues on my new Unraid build. I ended up changing out some hardware, and the issue was resolved. I was able to have 20+ days of uptime. Now in the last 2 weeks, I am having crash experiences again. After the 1st 2, I started copying the contents of syslog to my boot drive in order to catch any messages that were written to the log. It looks to be a memory issue, but would appreciate any other assistance that could be given. 2 Syslogs are attached that were running during the crash. I have also attached diagnostics. Last night - (1/4) I noticed it crashed around 10pm, and restarted (had to manually power down server by holding power button and restart). Crashed again over night. Noticed this morning on waking up. The 1/4 and 1/5 logs are attached that show activity when it crashed. Thank you for any help. syslog.out.01052016.txt syslog.out.01042016.txt nas-diagnostics-20170105-0600.zip
  10. I had some issues recently with post behavior ad crashes, so decided to change out my board. I installed ASRock N68C-GS4 FX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157581&nm_mc=TEMC-RMA-Approvel&cm_mmc=TEMC-RMA-Approvel-_-Content-_-text-_- When setting my BIOS up, there is no ACHI option for the SATA controller. I have started the server, but not the array, and all drives are showing properly. Is this a problem? The startup guides say to use AHCI, and not IDE or RAID. I have also looked through my manual, and there is no mention of AHCI. Attached is the image of the BIOS screen where I cannot get an ACHI setting. I want to start my array and see if all my issues were fixed, but I am afraid of breaking something with this BIOS setting. Thanks for any advice.
  11. I just found this thread. http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=41617.msg395272#msg395272 It seems the AR8171 drives are included in v6.1, so should be all good.
  12. I just took delivery on ASROCK N68C-GS4Fx. It also uses the AR8171. I bought the board without checking on here first, and now am seeing posts about its compatibility with Linux OS. Once I get it up and running later today I will let you know what I find....hopefully it works.
  13. Thanks for the tips...I am doing more extensive troubleshooting now, and reaseating the cpu and cooler is on my to do list. While doing all of this, I discovered that my graphics card is dead (after 15 minutes of power on when graphics is plugged in UI wont load. Without graphics card, UI will load after about 5 minutes. So I cant do a memtest now, despite wanting to, because i dont have onboard graphics Despite having only gotten it 1 month ago, Amazon is being a Pain and wont let me return it. So trying to figure that out now. SATA controller card is also presenting strange issues...just plugging the card in, I can still boot and load the UI after about 5 minutes... However plugging drives into the card, the UI never loads (have waited 15 minutes). Currently testing different drives with different ports on the card, but it seems to be dead as well. This makes me wonder...both of my working PCI cards all of the sudden stop working...could something in the board have shorted?
  14. Having motherboard issues. Turned an old PC into an unraid server, and starting to experience odd behavior, extremely long post times, and server crashes when under under load. Board needs to be in good working condition, Socket AM2+, and have available 4 channels of DDR2 ram. CPU that I'm using - https://m.newegg.com/Product/index?itemnumber=N82E16819103249
