  1. Thanks @Frank1940 your suggestion got me up and running again. I did have to purchase a new USB drive because the old one was dead.
  2. Thanks @Frank1940, should I use the same version as I was using (6.6.6)?
  3. @Frank1940 I'm missing: - /extra (optional) - /packages (optional) - /config/smart-all.cfg - /config/secrets All other files seem to be ok. The only things I'm worried about are the bzroot and bzimage files in de /previous/ directory because these gave errors during the copy process. I've manually checked most of the files to see if I was able to read them and I haven't noticed any issues with any of the files. There is 1 cache drive in the array. From: /config/DISK_ASSIGNMENTS.txt Disk Assignments Disk: parity Device: WDC_WD40EFRX-68N32N0_WD-WCC7K3FSH59A Status: DISK_OK Disk: disk1 Device: WDC_WD40EFRX-68N32N0_WD-WCC7K3UR1EL1 Status: DISK_OK Disk: disk2 Device: WDC_WD20EARS-00MVWB0_WD-WCAZA6738343 Status: DISK_OK Disk: disk3 Device: WDC_WD20EARS-00MVWB0_WD-WCAZA5728174 Status: DISK_OK Disk: parity2 Device: Status: DISK_NP_DSBL Disk: cache Device: Samsung_SSD_840_PRO_Series_S12PNEAD130049R Status: DISK_OK Disk: cache2 Device: Status: DISK_NP Disk: flash Device: Ultra_Fit Status: DISK_OK
  4. @Squid I have 1 parity drive. I do have files in my /config folder and most files seem to be ok. I'm not sure which config files are crucial for booting my unraid system.
  5. @Frank1940 I can't access the server, the old USB drive doesn't work, the new one boots with a clean installation.
  6. Yesterday I rebooted my unRAID server but it wouldn't boot up again. I connected a monitor and keyboard and noticed the following error during boot: PXE-E53: No boot filename received I checked the boot devices in the BIOS and couldn't find my USB device. To verify if the USB drive worked at all, I pulled the drive from the server and connected it to my computer and I was able to read (most of?) the files on it. I immediately copied the contents of the USB drive to my computer but got read errors on a (large-ish) file in the `/previous/` directory (can't remember the name of the file at the moment). I've read some posts about similar issues and understood that I could use a new USB drive and copy the contents of the old drive to the new one. Before copying the files over I used the USB creator tool from unRAID to format the drive (and load a version of unRAID on it). After that I copied all files I recovered from the old USB drive to the new one I tried booting from that drive. I was able to boot the the unRAID OS but noticed the server name was still the default 'tower' and after logging in I could not find any of my shares. Did I do something wrong with the creation of the new USB drive? Did I miss any configuration files? What are my options here? I've got a lot of data on the 4 disks and have a lot of docker containers running which I would hate to reinstall/configure. Edit: I'm running unRAID 6.6.6 currently
  7. Thanks for taking a look at it. I checked the Event Log and there were some Errors about the System Fans. I've got all the fans hooked up to a fan hub inside my case and I'm only using 1 System Fan connector on the board. I'll try removing them from the hub and connecting them directly to the board to see if that solves the issue.
  8. My new server has been up for a couple of days and I keep getting the Machine Check Events notification. I've included my diagnostics file and have mce installed (via Nerdpack). ultra-diagnostics-20180903-1216.zip
  9. Hmm... Maybe an Intel Core i7-8700 with the Asus Prime Z370-A will yield me better results for a similar price. Thanks @tdallen!
  10. Thank you @tdallen for the suggestions. So after about a year... I've finally decided that I am going to build myself an Unraid server. I came up with the following CPU and Motherboard. - Intel Xeon E3-1245 v6 (link) - ASUS P10S WS (link) Which would cost me around €525 (~$630). I went for this Xeon mainly because of the integrated graphics with H.265 support. The purchase probably won't happen for another 2-3 months, would this still be a decent combo or am I better of with something else?
  11. Thank you @tdallen for your quick reply and warm welcome. That is good to hear. Whoops, didn't catch that. DDR4 it is then. Could you give some examples for decent processors for which I don't have to get a second mortgage. It's a modular power supply, wouldn't it be enough to split the 'load' over the two separate cables. Or isn't that how it works? Please note, all the parts I mentioned are parts that I already have laying around from an older system (on which the motherboard and/or CPU died), not what I intend to purchase.
  12. My Planned Setup Windows 10 VM Connected to TV (4K) for day to day use, mostly media consumption (Plex Client) NAS Torrent/Usenet client Plex Server Linux Server VM Mainly for playing around with webservers and docker containers Let's start with what I have laying around Do you have any spare parts laying around that you would like to apply towards your build? This includes drives. Case: Fractal Design Define R4 Black Pearl Motherboard: TBD CPU: TBD Cooler (CPU): TBD Memory: Corair Vengeance CML8GX3M2A1866C9B (2x4GB) Graphics: TBD Power: Be Quiet Pure Power L8-CM-430W Drives: 2x 2TB Western Digital WD20EARS 1x 2TB Western Digital WD20EFRX 1x 1TB Western Digital WD10EADS 1x 2TB Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 1x 128GB Samsung SSD 840 PRO So the parts I'm looking for are: CPU: Preferably Intel, probably some i5 Motherboard: Minimum of 8 SATA III ports. The case has 6 harddrive slots and I would probably like to add 2 more SSD's for caching. Support for Virtualization 4 RAM slots Graphics Card: The Windows VM will be connected to a 4K TV on which I would like to be able to stream 4K content. I'm not planning to run any games on the VM. Mostly media consumption like with the Plex Client and browser. What is your budget? Even if you don't have a strict budget set out, at least give us an idea if you are pinching pennies or splurging on your build. Probably something around € 400,00 for the basic parts to get the system up and running. I'll probably add extra memory and more and/or larger SSD's and HDD's in the future. How many drives do you want your server to be able to support and how much capacity do you need? The case I'll be using had room for a maximum of 6 drives, I don't think I need more than that. Is expandability important to you? If so, what's your long term goal? Not very important, like I mentioned under budget, I'll probably expand on RAM and Disk size in the future. I'm not planning to have a 80 disk array running in the (near) future. Are you interested in running any unRAID Add Ons (see here)? If so, which ones? Be specific. Docker: Plex Media Server, openVPN, nginx proxy+letsencrypt VMs: Windows 10; Linux (Ubuntu) Server Plugins: Speedtest, Community Applications, Unassigned Devices Do you want to run green/low power drives or faster 7200 rpm drives? If you don't have a specific need for 7200 rpm drives, then choose green drives. Most of the drives I already have are 'green' drives. If you already have parts in mind, please oh pretty please post links to them so that we don't have to look them up. Here is a list of links of all the parts I have laying around: Case: Fractal Design Define R4: http://www.fractal-design.com/home/product/cases/define-series/define-r4-black-pearl Memory: Corair Vengeance CML8GX3M2A1866C9B: http://www.corsair.com/en-gb/vengeance-low-profile-8gb-dual-channel-ddr3-memory-kit-cml8gx3m2a1866c9b Power: Be Quiet Pure Power L8-CM-430W: http://www.bequiet.com/en/powersupply/248 Drives: Western Digital WD20EARS: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136514 Western Digital WD20EFRX: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822236343 Western Digital WD10EADS: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136317 Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148834 128GB Samsung SSD 840 PRO: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147192
