  1. In Windows 10, both times there was a driver issue - I used the VirtIO driver from the latest package.. When installing the drivers, I belive/remember that they were signed by Redhat - that was what I was meaning. I have been looking into Spaceinvaders Ones vids . and they are awesome.... I dont have the time to figure out to make a proper passthrou at this time tho. But I belive that his method will work.
  2. As topic says. I'm new to Unraid, and this is my first build. I have the following hardware Ryzen 7 1800x - standard clock Asrock X370 Taichi - latest firmware 16 gig RAM Samsung 960 500 gig M.2 drive First I did setup the server with only the 960 drive as a cache drive, assiged the VM 250gig, but the performance was horrible, like 15-20 Mbyte/s read/write. Then I tried over, and dropped the M.2 drive into unassigned devices, and installed the VM on the drive and gave it 250 gig again.. Speed is better, now I am getting 200'ish Mbyte/sec read/write - but i dident get this drive if I couldent utelize the complete power of the drive. Both times I have used the redhat driver. The OS is win 10 pro.
  3. @soder Not to be an ass or anything, but you should really read the thread, the answer is there somewhere. The answer will not come on page 13 - because someone have had the same issue as you.
  4. Hi all. I'm in need of a new Unraid server. My use case will be as follows. A gaming VM, with a GTX770 GFX card passed thru. Will upgrade in a couple of years when the current card cant follow up. PLEX with 1 transcode different dockers, like Archive-teams warrior, 2-3 torrent instances, Clibre, Xeoma, ZNC, OpenVPN server, and other minor dockers Other VMs - Thise will just be used to fool around with, I will likely not have a dedicated GFXcard for thise. I will only boot them when needed. Hardware ideas. I'm kinda torn between the I7-8700k and a Ryzen 7 1700X Bot CPUs have its pros and cons. I like the Ryzens core count, but can I trust it to be reliable with all of the issuies it had when it released? I like the I7 due to its high single core passmark point, and the I7-8700k also has a TDP on just a mere 65 Watt. I know it don't max out the wattage, but I like stuff to be efficient. It's been 8 years since I made my last PC, and I'm really not into the diffrent chipsets anymore, so if anyone have a suggestion as for CPU+motherboard+RAM - that would be awesome ------ I was thinking of giving the gaming VM 3 cores, the Unraid server 1 core, and then let the remaining dockers+VMs share the remaining. With kind regards.
  5. I have been googleing this small problem, but I cant seem to find a result that fits my needs? When I try and use the GUI I have some problems with the layout of the keyboard. I may be using a US keyboard, but I would like ti change it to danish (DA) I have installed nerd pack, and installed the current version of kbd, and in the shell I did this command loadkeys dk it tells me - Loading /usr/shar/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/ But they layout dosent fit with my danish keyboard. Any ideas?
  6. @HelldriverUK - Thankyou on the info on controllers. I'll have a lookout for some used controller on the local market. @tdallen - I will likely use it as you mentioned. I will have a gaming VM with 2 cores and its HT passed throw. I wont be transcoding that heavily, 1 or maximum 2 transcodes at the same time.... I was thinking about the Ryzen for down the line when my son grows a bit older, I would like to give him a core and his own GPU.... But, when that day comes, it willlikely ust be an good excuse to upgrade. The 2 cores and its HT's will be used only by the win10 VM for my day-to-day workstation+gaming mashine
  7. Fantastic - I'll start to play around with this. Thumbs up EDIT :Of Course it worked, Have a nice evening
  8. I have installed CA Allready, fantastic tool!! But. When under the "Apps" (Community applications) I cannot see a function to switch on the advanced mode? Could I lure you into takeing a screenshot and show me what you mean? Thanks in adv.
  9. Hi all. I could need some info on how to install a docker from github. I would like to be a warrior from "Archive Team" I can only urge people to become a warrior, and help archive the important stuff from the internet, so knowledge and heritage dont disappear for good when links and websites die. POINT: This docker take some of your CPU power and bandwidth, because it trawl through a web page, and upload it to Archive teams servers, but it shouldent take much bandwith, but for the US people that are being limited in traffic, this is something to think about. The git-docker in question are the one from the following link. PS. I'm sorry if this info are obvious, but I'm new at both Unraid and Docker.
  10. Hi all. I may receive a very good price on some used hardware. I actually wanted to wait for the Ryzen to get mature enough with the IOMMU part because I want to use pass thru when it comes to GFX cards. I like the price and number of shear cores My usecase I want to run a single hardware to act as a server when it comes to dockers like couchpotato, krusader, legacurytorrent, openvpn, xeoma, plexrequest and of course plex. Also I want to have a few VMs, but they won't be running normally, only if i want to play with them, so no dedicated hardware to them. Then I need a single windows 10 VM with passed throu GFX card that will act as my day to day desktop, so this will be assigned most cores and RAM. The hardware specs on the machine that I have been offered is the following Intel I7-7700K CPU Asus Prime Z270-P motherboard 32 gig of RAM @ some fast speed GTX 1060 with 6GB RAM, can't remember the exact model Question. 1- The IGPU can be assigned to Unraid via the BIOS, set the IGPU as default, correct? 2- Will this machine have enough juice to support all the above dockers+win 10 VM, - How many cores or threads would you assign to this VM? 3- I haven't tried to pass through a GFX card yet on my current server, but on this new hardware, it should be pretty straightforward, right? 4- This motherboard only have 4 SATA ports, and that are kinda not really enough for me So I would need to add a Raid controller of some sort. It's been 10 years since I build my current PC, and back then I just used a copy of Tomshardwareguide specs on a PC that was in my desired price range, because then I knew that the pieces fit together The motherboard have the following PCI slots 1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16 mode) 1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (max at x4 mode) 4 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x1 The above mean that i can plugin a GFXcard and a raidcontroller on the second "1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (max at x4 mode)" but if the gfxcard uses 16 lanes, the second PCIe slot will only have x4 avalible?? The speed of storage I really dont care about since it will only be hosting movies and alike, and games and VMs will be stored on fast SSD or M.2 Is there storage controllers out there that fit a slot like "PCIe 3.0/2.0 x1" or is this simply to slow? thanks in adv. And sorry for this being a dumb post, but I simply haven't got any hardware knowledge.
  11. I have an issue with CP not searching for the right release that I want. My native language is not english, and when I want a movie from my original language, and do a search for a movie, the english title will be searched upon first. The sites I'm on, the titles are always on danish, if its a danish movie that is, and not its english title. CP do the search in an incorrect laungage. I did ask around, and this "fix" was given me as an possible help, but due to the nature of the docker system, I'm a bit bewilderd realle for what file to edit in. the "fix" below would then be from a windows mashine. I use Krusader when i edit in anything - note* I'm very very green inn linux and unraid ----------------- Navigate tol: /couchpotato/core/media/movie/providers/torrent/ delete line 20, soo: 'search' : getTitle(media), reboot cp
  12. Hi all. I'm wondering how to setup a rsync server? I have a synology production server that i would like to have an backup off. I'm also quite new to Unraid, so it's all up hill from here There are quite a few dockers with names like rclone - but as i understand it, the rsync is a server, and rclone is a client - just like FTP? I have seen alot of vids where you use rclone to upload to google drive and/or Amazon Cloud Drive - But I need the syno to be a server this time. just a few hints would be much apreciated thanks in adv. Kim, Denmark
  13. Hi all. My brothers company are in the works to get a new storage server with an offsite backup for all of their files I'm new into Unraid, but this OS has grown a lot on me since I started to use it. This server will store RAW photos of their projects. When a file hits the server, the file will not be manipulated, but will only be read multiple times - so this correlates fine with how Unraid works, like slower write speeds. They generate about 300 GByte daily, and the DATA will goto the server in normal hours.Either over the Internet, or dumped from a USB. Often when the people return from the field, they come with a 3TB HDD and then unload it... It would be perfect to have an VM on the server with a USb that is passthru, so that the HDD dont haft to enter the local network, but sits on top of the hardware. This server will start off with having 20TB usable space, with a 2 drive redundancy, and a offsite failover with exactly the same hardware and setup. The offsite server will solely be used for backup. They will start out with having 20 usable space with a 2 disk failure setup. When they are fully into business, they will need 120-150 TB usable space. If I don't want to use a buffer, but write directly into the protected drivespace, what kind of performance will i be able to get? Using state of the art drives (WD Gold datacenter drives) Since it is RAW photos, I could save on space if the files were packaged. Are there a addon that will allow me this? to compress files that are on the drive for storage, and when a file is pulled on the network, the server will decompress the file. I know it would be a good idea to have a somewhat powerful XEON and ECC memory, but... keep in mind that this is production data, and a single day of downtime because a addon doesn't work could pay a few drives. I haven't seen it, but are there a build in feature into Unraid to compress the files stored? If soo, how would it be to pull off the server in the case of a total server failure? How would YOU do about this with the given information above. What hardware should each server have, and how would you have it setup? What dockers would you use? Use of snapshots if you accidentally deletes anything on your main server, or gets infected by ransomware. Thankyou in advance. P.S An alternative would be the Synology DS2415+, but I really do like unraid, but both systems have its pros and cons.
  14. It wasent really for a forum based kind of thing, more of a external thing where people could fill out a formular and then people could look into the complete list, and then learn things from that. I know the industry change really fast, and the list will be outdated pretty fast. It was also only a thourt, and something that could be interresting. I'll post in another section instead. Thankyou, Cheers
  15. I'm in the process of finding out what kind of equipment I would need in a new setup, but since it's been almost 10 years since the last buidl, I'm very very rusty in hardware, and since Unraid is all new for me, I would like if it was possible to get to know others explicit setup when it comes to motherboard, CPU, GFX card, BIOS version ect ect - and a username within the forum, so i could send a PM directly if I had a similar setup as someone else. Since I'm no hardware or software nerd I want to get a system that is as plug and play as even possible. therefore I suggest a way for the community to fill out a google formular where you could fill out all kind of points, and a option to write you'r own experiences with this exact setup. Then I could do a search for a system with xxxx motherboard, and then filter out the desired CPU and all other components, and then get to know others experiences with a setup. Beeing a Unraid noob, I would very much prefer not to get into IOMMU problems, Ryzen problems ect ect I hope that John will take this into consideration. Thanks in adv.
