  1. BTW, I checked the location of the disk and it is connected to the SATA port on the motherboard directly. So it doesn't seems to be a cable issue...unless it happens the next time I think.
  2. Hello I reboot the server and this time parity disk has SMART data. I found flag 0x000a UDMA CRC error count added one permanently. But everything else seems fine. 0x06 0x018 4 1 --- Number of Interface CRC Errors Please kindly suggest what should I do to enable the disk. Thanks!
  3. Understood. I will check the cable then. Thanks for the explaination.
  4. My understanding is that since the disk is disabled so SMART is not available. Should I restart the array to get SMART back?
  5. I had the same problem and find the way to fix it. Go to UNRAID docker page, change the view from basic to advanced with the button in the up-right corner, then you will see there is a "force update" for every docker container. Force update letsencrypt and issue is resolved!
  6. Thanks! I thought this will be updated via docker container. I successfully upgraded to 15.0.5 now.
  7. Thanks. I just got the update this evening so this time I tried to use "force update" function in advanced view to update the nextcloud container and the updater said it is up-to-date. So nothing is changed. I am still in 14.0.3 however...
  8. Hello, I see people mentioning nextcloud 15.0.5. My docker container recently shows upgrade for this nextcloud a couple of times. But after the upgrade I see I still at 14.0.3. May I know how to upgrade to 15.0.5 as your guys? Thanks!
  9. thanks. may i know what exactly how the algorithm to calculated parity slot 2 is different than slot 1? personally i don't mind if parity disk is in slot 1 or 2, as long as I have one parity disk.
  10. ok. what you mean is: for parity-swap it contains: one parity copy from old parity disk to new disk (this only needs the old parity disk healthy, other than all other disks healthy, since the array is offline) one data rebuild afterwards (this requires all disks healthy) for what I did via parity disk 2 it needs: one parity sync for parity disk 2 (this needs all disks healthy) one data rebuild afterwards (this needs all disks healthy as well). is my understanding correct?
  11. here the thing: i have array with parity drive 5TB and data drive 5TB+1.5TB+1.5TB. a few days ago the 5TB data disk drive failed and I sent it to vendor for RMA. in the same time i bought two new 8TB drives and want to replace both the failed data drive and the parity drive. i found out i cannot replace the failed data drive with 8TB drive since the new drive 8TB is larger than the current parity drive 5TB. of course i cannot replace the parity drive with the new drive directly since there is no way to rebuild the data unraid suggests to check
  12. I am searching for thunderbolt 3 support recently in the forums and found most of the answers are "No", except this case: The poster used a thunderbolt 2 enclosure for the drives and it is working properly with unraid release before (except the booting issue he addressed). Wondering if anybody tried any thunderbolt 3 external drive enclosure with TB3 device (e.g. intel NUC) actually? I found the following information in since in unraid 6.5.2 we are already at Linux Kernel 4.14, and should include the following patch for TB3 security control: https://lk
  13. since in unraid 6.5.2 we are already at Linux Kernel 4.14, and should include the following patch for TB3 security control: does it mean unraid support eGPU already by: $sudo sh -c 'echo 1 > /sys/bus/thunderbolt/devices/0-1/authorized' like this topic: does anyone ever test it?
  14. When I switch from Windows VM to another Windows VM, it could happen, let's say once in ten times or 15 times. When the issue happening, usually you just cannot boot the VM and of course you didn't see any output in the monitor as well. (if I use the vbios I might be able to see the UEFI BIOS logo, haven't tried it yet). The worst case, is that the fan of the graphic card is running to its max speed all the time, even after restart the unraid machine. I couldn't boot any VM as the card is not in the system device even. The only way to recover is to shutdown the tower and boot it up
  15. tried vbios file, which helps me to get the boot order screen before booting macOS, quite nice, but it doesn't resolve the problem for switching back to Windows. uses the vbios file for Windows VM as well. Once used macOS then switch back to Windows VM. I can see the UEFI bios logo, then the screen output become a mess afterwards. still have to reboot the machine to let the graphic card works again.
  16. Yesterday I made little progress with it. I added AppleALC and Lilu kext files into clover EFI partition, which fixed my RX480/580 recognition problem (previously R9 xxx, now RX580 4GB) and also the performance benchmark is back to normal. Now if I shut down the macOS and start up a Windows VM, there is no more one CPU looping 100% but looks more normal start up behavior, however, GPU still doesn't send the display any output yet. I am feeling this is a kind of hackintosh problem instead of KVM itself...
  17. Hello I see others have issue in old release (6.2.4) that macOS is only able to boot once: But this is not my case. I can boot other macOS VMs after shutting down macOS VM. The only issue is that I cannot boot any Windows VM anymore (with the same graphic card), unless I reboot the unRAID server... This should be related to the graphic cards, because it is totally not a problem if I don't passthru the GPU but use VNC to access macOS.
  18. Hello, I am on unRAID 6.5.0 and use it for sometime without any big issue. Last week I followed @gridrunner's spaceinvader guide and set up the macOS high sierra virtual machines which work perfectly with my RX480/580 passthrough as well . After a couple of days I found out one problem, which is a bit annoying: I am using the single GPU (Sapphire RX480/580 4GB) to passthru to all my VMs since I am not using them together. The cards works well both on Windows 10 VMs and macOS VMs. However I do notice that as soon as the card has been passed thru to the macOS virtual
  19. hello there, i am using the unraid server (6.4rc-15e, 4790K/Z97/32GB) and passing through my amd rx480/580 gpu, use it for about 2 months now. recently just notice that my rx480/580 memory clocks often locks at lowest state, which is 300MHz all the time since the windows starts. of course it impacts the performance, especially for gaming. it's easy to find it out. just run gpu-z and start rendering test and check if memory clock jumps up. i have a workaround, to use cru-1.3.1 to soft reset the display driver then the memory clock is back to normal, that means w
  20. I think you can assign 128GB NVMe SSD to cache disk too, just change the Btrfs to single mode. So this leverage the different size of SSDs.
  21. ok. I think I will stop here. A couple of errors sound still okay for me. As seen the NPT issue has been resolved on Ryzen build, next year maybe try AMD platform. Thanks a lot anyway!
  22. Hello, I ran memtest for more than 35 hours and got no error a couple of days ago. Today I re-run the parity check still found 40 errors. Any other clue? BTW, I am thinking if still needed to have parity drive if I always got errors? If now I have a drive got failed, is it possible to recover the data by the parity drive? Best Regards, Alex
  23. ok. thanks. I will double check the memory to see if any finding.
