  1. Could this be added to the road map? Maybe for v 6.1? Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk
  2. So do I. I checked back snapraid and looked promising, especially the multi parity drives. What put new off however was the lack of webGui Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk
  3. You could run 'virtual full desktops' (guests) from within a hardware server (host). In plain terms, you could run for example Windows, Linux and OSX from one simple box. And of course one of these guests could be pfsense ;-) Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk
  4. As I said before - if it doesn't work for you, use the alternatives - there is no need to keep telling/asking me to change the current design. Bonienl and others offer their services with no compensation to help enhance the unRaid product. Based on the professionalism I see in Dynamix, I'd say bonienl knows what he is doing and is doing an excellent job. Continuing to hammer him on a feature you may not appreciate does nothing to further the cause of enhancing unRaid. As he said, if you don't appreciate the features he has built into Dynamix, find an alternative that does things th
  5. A simple comment that you weren't going to participate in the discussion anymore due to the attacks would have perhaps been a more appropriate response than just deleting the entire thread. "Taking my ball and leaving" is not a particularly mature response ... that's twice now that this has been done in these virtualization threads (remember ddeeds ?) That's easy to say now, but (verbal) violence was escalating. Mods (I believe you are one) , or even Tom, should have anticipated and stopped it, but they didn't. And ironic locked the thread, only to have it unlocked by a mod (I think i
  6. I'm certainly nowhere close to be a linux guru , but, can you set up a not-stripped raid? IMO, this has 2 advantages: [*]I do not have to spin up the whole array to open a small word file (for example) [*] if parity+1 drives fail, I only lose the information on those drives, and not the whole array. This might seem unlikely, but it happened to me one month into unraid, with brand new drives, that have been precleared. What are the odds!
  7. Why would you? You will be going back in time to a read only file system, plugins and solely dependent on one person for everything. Does openSUSE have 10,000+ developers, testers, innovation, updates, patches, testing, package maintainers, etc. or does unRAID? You need to think of unRAID as a NAS storage device utilizing a very "stripped down" Linux to do it and not a Linux Distro. I doubt it will ever evolve into that. As Fx stated before, unRAID is something more than raid 5. Their jbod application is pretty useful when adding new drives. HOWEVER, if I could get
  8. I was hoping this will move forward during the x-mas break to migrate from ESXi, but it seems like it's not going to happen. Grumpy if I were to use your opensuse and kvm guide, how easy would be to move the setup later on to this new unraid version (if it ever happens). I also wanted to take the opportunity to install pfsense, will this make things more difficult? Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk
  9. And in Spain? Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk
  10. You need at least vtx for Virtualization. Vtd is needed if you also require/want pass through Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk

  13. Make sure the disk tray closes fine. I had some trouble with the 4224 because of loose trays. Make sure you push them tight! Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk
  14. Unraid doesn't support a second parity drive. It's been in the roadmap forever though. I believe it was called p+q. What you could do (I think) is to raid1 your cache drive, easier said than done though. Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk
  15. Why not? You can share the pendrive, why not the host drive, or especifically a part of it? Maybe create a partition that will act as cache for unRAID. This way, if I have a RAID1 of the host hard drive, cache will also be protected, does it make sense?
  16. I do a bit of lightroom and photoshop, plus my Dropbox share. These are continuously writing files, without a cache my array will be up and running recalculating parity way too often. With cache is just once per day. Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk
  17. I have a couple of points in which I'd really appreciate your input guys. Just bear with me for a sec. I'm running an ESXi hypervisor and one of the VMs is a NAS4Free zfs server. I keep there the VMs and the cache drive. I'm happy with this setup because: a. My cache drive has some level of protection b. My other VMs not only are also protected but also have daily snapshots (which have come handy in a couple of occasions) c. I'm getting very good speeds with spinners When moving to unRAID-extreme (man i hope this does actually happen!) my plan is to set up some kind of rai
  18. No vtd, no pass through, if you don't need it you are good to go :-) you could still virtualize a plex server, usenet box, Dropbox/crashplan server, etc I was thinking on my needs, i want to pass through a gpu a ditch my desktop ;-) Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk
  19. Don't mean to put you down but i don't think an i3 will support vt-d Sent from my GT-I9305 using Tapatalk
