  1. Discovered this plugin a few minutes ago, works like a charm! (Pentium G5400 / UHD 610) Thank you so much!!! Just out of curiosity, why does the Overview list more available modes than actually available? Overview of available modes: i915-GVTg_V5_1: VMEM: <512MB, 2048MB>, up to 1920x1200 i915-GVTg_V5_2: VMEM: <256MB, 1024MB>, up to 1920x1200 i915-GVTg_V5_4: VMEM: <128MB, 512MB>, up to 1920x1200 i915-GVTg_V5_8: VMEM: <64MB, 384MB>, up to 1024x768 Following modes are available: i915-GVTg_V5_4 i915-GVTg_V5_8 (I guess, the UHD 610 only supports i915-GVTg_V5_4 and i915-GVTg_V5_8)
  2. Does USB-passthrough work for anyone? At first I thought my VM crashed, when I switched from VNC to GPU-passthrough. But I noticed that the clock still worked in the system. So I switched back to VNC and I‘ve got the same problem. When using an external mouse and keyboard (USB-passthrough) both stop working after a couple of seconds, controlling using VNC still worked. Did only try Big Sur so far, will try Catalina today. I took a look at the logs and I always get something like this: „usb_device_descriptor 2 unknown type 33 (len 10)“ Google sadly wasn’t my friend. I would use a separate USB-card in my Unraid server, guess there wouldn’t be any problems, but I only have an ITX-board and the one PCI slot is needed for the GPU.
  3. Did you try installing with VNC first and switching to passthrough afterwards? Not sure why, but a new VM only shows a flashing cursor, but my already installed vm does boot just fine.
  4. Just wanted to give OpenCore in unraid a try, but I don‘t even get past the Tiano Core logo. My VM instantly restarts, only the size of the Tiano Core logo varies between small and large... So I mounted a copy of my clover.qcow2 and replaced the EFI folder with the one from github, I also created my own qcow2 file based on the instructions I‘ve found, but it always keeps rebooting instantly. Guess I‘m missing some basic instruction? Is there something else beside the EFI folder and some customization in the xml template? EDIT: had to change the scan policy 🙄 But the installation keeps starting in chinese even though I changed the prev-lang:kbd setting in the config.plist. I was able to change it then (google picture search helped me finding it), but I'm still curious. I also did a nvram reset using OpenCore just to be sure, that the modified setting gets loaded, but it starts in chinese no matter what I do...
  5. After a lot of tests I was finally able to solve the problem myself. The maximum clock speeds for all the time were caused by the Checksum Suite plugin, which I installed a few weeks ago... so the power outage didn't harm anything at all in the end.
  6. Hi, today I had an power supply outage (whole neighborhood for few minutes) and since then my cpu (Pentium G5400) runs at 3.7 GHz all the time. The Dashboard shows 30-40% for all cores/hts all the time. But “top” only shows a few percent overall. Of course I’m using the Tips&Tweaks Plugin and I’ve set the cpu to Power Save, which was just working fine until today. I have an Asrock H370M-ITX Mainboard. I’ve already updated the BIOS version to the latest one, set everything to default and tried different C-State settings. I’ve also tried intel_pstate=disable, after that ACPI was shown in the Tips&Tweaks plugin (instead of Intel PState, but after starting my array all cores only ran at 800 MHz all the time. The most strange thing is, that the CPU Governor does seem to work BEFORE I start the array (reducing to 800 MHz after some time and showing 2.6 GHz in between for example, like it should be). After starting my array all cores are at maximum clock speed all the time (Power Save and Intel PState enabled). Cpufreq-info shows a minimum speed of 800 MHz and a maximum speed of 3.7 GHz. Of course I don’t know whether the the cpu got maybe damaged, but I would guess it would be completely destroyed or not at all, so just a thought, especially since it seems to work before starting the array. I’ve changed Power Save to Performance and back again a couple of times, doesn’t change anything regarding clock speeds... Until today I was still running 6.8.2, so I updated to 6.8.3, but the problem remains. I’ve attached my diagnostics, hopefully someone can help me EDIT: Intel Speedstep is of course enabled in my BIOS settings.
  7. As long as the other machine doesn’t know the encryption passphrase, it shouldn’t be possible to read the disk in any machine...
  8. So I’ve emptied disk2 of my array, stopped the array, selected xfs encrypted for disk2, started the array and formatted disk2. Before moving any data I did a parity check just to be sure. It’s finished now. I’ve got zero sync errors but disk2 has 152 (read) errors. I will check the cables and after that maybe do a parity check again or an extended smart check and see if the errors are gone then or if the disk is really damaged. Unraid still shows the disk as healthy... maybe it was just bad luck... what do you guys think?
  9. Thanks, ok, that’s even easier!
  10. Thanks for the quick answer! So just that I get this right: - I empty my frist data drive using unbalance plugin - Stop the array - Set the first drive to unassigned so that I can format it using unassigned devices plugin - Format the first drive and assign it again - Start the array and have to format the first drive, now using encryption - Parity will still be in sync - And then I continue with the next drive So there wouldn’t be any need for New Config except I would like to skip parity for all the moving which is involved like spaceinvaderone did in his tutorial?
  11. Hi, I want to encrypt my existing array and will follow the guide spaceinvaderone did some time ago (using unbalance to “clear” one drive after the other...). But I’m just curious about a few things: - As it seems I still need to use SSL for the WebGUI to use encryption, why exactly is this necessary? - Do I get any problems when my cert runs out, which will be the case in about two months and I have to renew my cert (I guess the SSL cert isn’t used for the encryption itself, so a new cert won’t change anything, the only thing which is actually necessary for decrypting is my passphrase) - Is there a way to keep the parity in sync in case something goes wrong? Of course I have a backup of my important files. My guess is that the parity drive won’t be of any help anymore after encrypting the first (empty) disk, since it isn’t completely identical to the status before (unencrpted) even if it will be “empty” before and after the encryption. So of course I could sync it again after encrypting the first disk which would give me some kind of protection for that moment being. I could then move all my files again, so the second disk is empty, but after encrypting that one my parity would be useless again until I synced it again. To cut a long story short, it seems parity won’t really help until the process of encryption is completely done, am I right? I would only have protection while moving the files from A to B?
  12. Hi, I’ve noticed that I can’t connect to my unraid server (SSL enabled) via the WebUI without internet connection. Usually that won’t be a problem most of the time, but I’m running my router as a vm. So I have to have autostart array and autostart vm enabled, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to connect from another pc. Just in case something would go wrong in the future, is there a way to connect to the WebUI from another pc without internet connection? Of course I could start the server with a monitor and input connected using the GUI on the unraid machine itself, but I’m just curious.
  13. I’ve tried that, but I always get the same error, when also using the sound card: internal error: qemu unexpectedly closed the monitor: 2020-03-31T12:19:09.054286Z qemu-system-x86_64: -device vfio-pci,host=0000:00:1f.3,id=hostdev1,bus=pci.0,addr=0x6: vfio 0000:00:1f.3: group 9 is not viable Please ensure all devices within the iommu_group are bound to their vfio bus driver. The iGPU alone seems to work so far. I did of course change the vfio-pci.ids entries, so that they match my gpu and sound card. My Windows 10 VM is set up as i440fx-4.0 and SeaBIOS. I’m using an H370M-ITX/ac board with a Pentium G5400 (UHD610). If also tried passing through the iGPU on my non-unRaid machine (using the trial and a spare disk), which has an Designare Z390 board and an i5-9600K (UHD630) and the same thing happens, iGPU alone would work, but as soon as I try to passthrough the sound card too, I get the same error. By the way group 9 looks like this on my unraid machine: IOMMU group 9:[8086:a304] 00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation H370 Chipset LPC/eSPI Controller (rev 10) [8086:a348] 00:1f.3 Audio device: Intel Corporation Cannon Lake PCH cAVS (rev 10) [8086:a323] 00:1f.4 SMBus: Intel Corporation Cannon Lake PCH SMBus Controller (rev 10) [8086:a324] 00:1f.5 Serial bus controller [0c80]: Intel Corporation Cannon Lake PCH SPI Controller (rev 10) [8086:15bc] 00:1f.6 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection (7) I219-V (rev 10) On my Designare Z390 it’s pretty alike. So if someone has an idea how I could be able to pass through my sound card as well, I would be very glad EDIT: OUCH! Just after posting this I realized something... my unraid server was using the I219 eth which was of course in group 9. So I quickly changed the unraid eth connection to my second one, which is placed in a separate group and after that my sound card finally did work!!!
  14. I just stumbled upon this problem, is there a way to fix this behaviour? I could move the whole data folder to cache only, but then the parity wouldn’t function as backup and storage would also be more limited... I’m thinking about one solution which I didnt try yet: Changing the /data folder to cache only, but also create a path for /data/USERNAME which points to a separate share which is array only. If I’m not mistaken Nextcloud then shouldn’t spin up the array after a simple login because the appdata_ folder is stored on the cache disk, but all my files stored in Nextcloud wouldn’t be stored on the cache anymore but my array. So when copying a new file or opening an existing file, then the array would spin up. Of course I would have to add a path for every separate user. I’ve also thought about changing the location of my user folder in Nextcloud but there doesn’t seem to be an option for that.
  15. I’m trying to use your DOH-server on my iOS devices with DNSCloak, but sadly it doesn’t work. I’ve used this site to generate a stamp ( I’ve already tried different combinations, but it won’t connect. Could you explain how to use it with DNSCloak By the way, is there a way to test whether the DOH-server is working correctly, with a curl command or something like that? EDIT: It’s working now. Just found out that letsencrypt didn’t start, because the template caused an error. After changing it based on my other configs letsencrypt did start again and DOH-server did work instantly using DNSCloak. As far as testing goes you can use curl --doh-url SERVER
