  1. There's nothing here that's so crazy that it would need it's own specific build... you want to do the same as everyone else, basically. And it sounds like you already know what you want. Intel with iGPU is probably easiest.. you just need to figure out if you want to go with server grade hardware or consumer grade hardware. Server ... Xeon E-whatever, Consumer, i5/i7/i9-whatever. At least 32GB RAM I'd suggest, and if it's in the budget then 64GB would be good to start with. An SSD cache drive or two, and any extra hard drives you want to start out with and you're done. You can get some build ideas from these guys...
  2. You can do it any way you want, it's your computer. I probably wouldn't use krusader though, I'd just use SMB shares.
  3. Unless someone is already using Plex for other things, I don't imagine someone would pay for a Plex Pass just to use Plex amp...
  4. You don't make anything happen "in unraid", and you don't browse websites through unraid. What are you using to access this forum right now? Windows? So why would you run a Windows VM? On Unraid, install the ruTorrent docker, and for whichever web browser you use get yourself an addon to send the torrents from your Windows that you're using right now to the rutorrent docker. You may need to fiddle around a bit to get it to work as I've only sent torrents to remote rutorrent clients, not on my unraid server. For Chrome, I used Remote Torrent Adder, and there's also Dediseedbox Torrent Uploader and Xirvik .torrent to seedbox uploader that also work. For Firefox I use Torrent to Web Alternately, you could just set up your current web browser to download torrent files to a watch directory that you configure in the ruTorrent docker and it will automatically load any downloaded torrents from there...
  5. license.txt is just the license agreement for using unraid, has nothing to do with your actual unraid license. when you get unraid started again if you have your previous license key (/config/basic.key or plus.key or pro.key) on the drive unraid will show that the license doesn't match the flash drive guid and you have to get a new license key. https://wiki.unraid.net/UnRAID_6/Changing_The_Flash_Device
  6. From what I've seen people posting, no problems with AMD and Unraid.. not to say that there may not be an issue here or there, just seems like nobody is having major problems. Never used Blue Iris so can't comment, but if you need some GPU ability for it then you might want to stick with what you know will work. Otherwise then yeah you might need more than one GPU if it needs a dedicated card and then you want GPU somewhere else also... that seems like it could get pretty messy.
  7. Everything looks good.. you picked out what you wanted so as long as you're happy with it. The 9211-8I card will work if it's flashed to IT mode. You can probably get one pre-flashed from eBay, or you can look for one that works with Unraid out of the box. This list is old(er) but it's a good starting point. https://wiki.unraid.net/Hardware_Compatibility#PCI_SATA_Controllers Then you just need some cables like this https://www.amazon.com/CableCreation-SFF-8087-Female-Controller-Backplane/dp/B013G4EMH8/ I don't see a power supply listed, so I assume you've chosen one that's just not on your list.... otherwise you'll have everything plugged it but no power Now to throw the obligatory wrench into things.. since you mentioned you were happy to be talked out of it ........ what made you settle on Intel rather than AMD? Comparatively speaking a Ryzen 9 3900X will offer you 2 more cores, less power consumption/TDP, $100 cheaper, and probably get you an option for ECC RAM if you wanted that (you'd need that $100 savings to make up for the extra cost of ECC), and maybe even better performance on some levels. https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare/AMD-Ryzen-9-3900X-vs-Intel-i9-10900K/3493vs3730
  8. When you originally were looking at buying Unraid, and went to the pricing page, you read "If your USB Flash boot device fails, you can transfer your registration key to a new USB Flash device initially at any time, and subsequently up to once per year." in the details. When you read the wiki page about replacing a flash drive so that you knew how the process was done, you read "You may replace your original registration key at any time. Having replaced your key once, you may next replace your key after a further period of 12 months. Should you need to replace it again within that 12 month period, then please send an email to support@lime-technology.com to discuss your options." Oh, you didn't read any of that? You did "a LOT" of reading about USB3 but didn't check on the procedure to change your flash drive? Do you see where I'm going with this? How I manage my flash drive ... I run a user script daily to backup my drive to a Dropbox path. I also don't change my flash drive.
  9. Actually your issue may be something totally different ..... all of a sudden my syncthing has stopped working and I cannot get them to connect.. Not sure when Syncthing updated to 1.7.1 or if that's the problem but I cannot get my 2 machines to connect, and I've changed nothing since they were working. Edit -- Yes indeed, I rolled back my docker version to linuxserver/syncthing:v1.6.1-ls37 and it instantly worked again. Something changed leading up to the most recent 1.7.1 that broke the container. Not sure what it could be though.
  10. By the sounds of it there wouldn't be anything "local" when separating machines by using 2 routers. Each router has it's own network and would only be "local" to it's own network. Why don't you want to add one of them as a remote device? Takes the guessing out of it.
  11. Pretty much the same across all systems. Unraid: /appdata/<plex>/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Plug-in Support/Databases Windows: "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Plex Media Server\Plug-in Support\Databases" Mac: ~/Library/Application\ Support/Plex\ Media\ Server/Plug-in\ Support/Databases/ Linux: $PLEX_HOME/Library/Application\ Support/Plex\ Media\ Server/Plug-in\ Support/Databases/ And then obviously all the other metadata folders if one wanted to copy it all.
  12. I'll only comment that according to Plex, the db is the same across all filesystems. So you should be able to take a linux db and use it on Windows and back on linux again and vice versa and here there to, in perpetuity, for ever and ever.
  13. The original greasemonkey script from that IPMI thread works...
