  1. i had this exact problem, the cause of it was i had two LSI Cards installed and they fight over the boot BIOS. when you have one installed there is no issues, when you have two installed it randomly locks up and won't boot just a black screen after bios screen. It doesnt present the LSI Boot Menu because both cards are fighting for the boot slot. Sometimes it will boot up after a few restarts, work for a few minutes or hours then disks will randomly get read errors, sometimes when you boot up some disks will just be disabled and not be there. You can use the lsi flash tool to delete just the boot bios, the down side is you cannot boot off a SATA Drive on the LSI cards anymore. However with unraid you are booting off USB so thats no issue. I deleted both off my LSI cards so it would stop happening. This caused no end of issues for me, i replaced my PSU, Motherboard, CPU, Memory and was still happening after a long time i discovered a post about two LSI Cards. https://www.ixsystems.com/community/threads/lsi-9207-8i-can-i-erase-just-the-bios-leave-the-fw.60861/ https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/lsi-9211-8i-it-mode-stuck-during-loading.8183/ You will find a heap of articles around about it.
  2. That usually hits all disks on that 5V Cable though. I guess its looking for paterns if its two disks what do those two disks share? Same Controller or same 5V Cable, process of elimination.
  3. I've ran into these types of problems before. Unfortunetly it can be a few things, a Disk failure is always possible but a second disk running into the same issue at the same time is unusal. Unless there has been some kind of event like vibration that damaged both drives. Quick way to rule this out try moving the SATA Drives to the onboard controller or if they are on the onboard SATA Controller try moving them to the LSI Card. It could be a data cable issue or controller issue. If all drives were running into an issue it could be RAM or PSU but given its only two drives i'd look at your SATA Data Cables or Controller.
  4. got it working changed it to a sata controller
  5. Does anyone know what setting i need to set to see a Virtual Disk in Unraid. I got Network working and everything else i just can't see a disk, It comes up in Data Disk 1 Unassigned. I can't see the disk in dmesg. I've attached a screenshot of my ESXi settings, any pointers ?
  6. I really do love the simplicity of Unraid for my home server uses. My question and request is probably far from what has been posted here. But i run an ESX Server in the Data Centre for my critical cloud apps. I have been unsucessful trying to get Unraid working on ESX using a USB thumbdrive booting in an VM. Are there any plans to release a cutdown Unraid Version for VM. I am happy to pay a license for it. I simply want a stripped down version of Unraid for Docker and VM Management. Every other Linux OS has a weird and frankly annoying way to manage Dockers, i really love Unraid's approach to this. In my research of trying to get this working there was a fair amount of interest in a VM version of Unraid. I would love to Beta test Unraid in a VM if you're ever looking for someone to do that.
  7. Thank you for adding that in Squid, i just tracked down my problems to Mover yesterday. Sent over a Beer your way.
  8. when i put config in network.cfg and reboot nothing seems to change. ifconfig shows only br0 and lo I cannot see any Ethernet Controllers in dmesg. Maybe previous versions of unraid had a driver that is no longer in the current build
  9. is there some CLI commands or config i can change to get it out of bonded and back to the interface directly ?
  10. yeah it is on br0. Kind of impossible to get the diagnostics given the server is a long way away. I have been unable to get eth1 to appear.
  11. Can anyone help with Unraid on ESXi 6.7. I have no working network driver after booting 6.6.7 of Unraid off a USB. i've tried E1000, VMXNET3 was the first i tried neither worked. When i boot up Ubuntu it works no issues I can't really flash the USB with an older version now its sitting in a server within the DC. Any thoughts?
  12. Thank you for explaining that. So i was thinking if i filled the VMDK i can expand it given i have 5TB of Array Storage. But i guess i just drop in a second VMDK or make sure i pick the correct size at the start.
  13. Next week i am deploying a Server in the DC behind a firewall. I am looking at running Unraid within ESXi. Looking at the methods to boot i will plug in an Unraid USB into the inbuilt USB Header. Booting from PLOP. I can't see any issues with this method it looks fine. I cannot find any info however on the Data Disk side of things. I was planning to create a 1TB VMDK on the Dell Managed Raid Storage within ESXi. Assigning this 1TB VMDK to the Unraid VM, will it show up as Disk1 to be assigned to Unraid? If i needed to increase the VMDK size later to say 2TB is Unraid going to be ok with that? I see a lot of people passing through controllers etc, but i am happy to let the Dell Server maintain the 14 Disk Array in Raid 6 on its own. I am mostly using Unraid for the Docker Functions and running some of the Dockers i have at home on my Unraid Server also here. I really love the way Unraid is simply to maintain and upgrade over a linux server, i am just looking at using the Service side of Unraid pretty much in a VM form. Either this is going to just work and thats why there is no info, or this isn't something many people are doing at all and it won't work. Any help is appreciated.
  14. thanks --log-opt max-size=50m --log-opt max-file=1 worked a treat.
  15. Does anyone know where the log location is for containers i clicked the Container Size section and found my logs are 6.45GB. But when i run around the container within a shell i cannot find where these logs are. Anyone know where they are kept?
