  1. Rolled it on back. I'll give it a few weeks and try again
  2. Updated and now all my drives are missing. Let the good times roll.
  3. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006ROKY68/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 As listed in my OP, this is the tape you want. It's the perfect size and is super easy to do.
  4. Hi spaceinvader one, I followed your guide and my proxy is working flawlessly. Great instructional video. Quick question: What ports do I use when forcing a web browser through the router's ip? For example, I want to use Vivaldi has my VPN protected web browser on my desktop. I downloaded several extensions and I can't seem to get any of them to work. I'm using the IP we set up as our virtual router, which works perfectly when applied in my Windows IPV4 settings for my entire desktop. 1) Does it have something to do with the specific ports I'm trying to use? Most extensions want HTTP, HTTPS, FTP ports, and the default ones do not work properly. 2) How do I point specific dockers to this VPN Router's address for VPN protection? Google searches yield "you can't use different IP address per each Unraid Docker". Thanks again ?
  5. I'm sure that this widely known by most. However, for those of you, like myself, who are OCD and to know exactly what type / size tape is ideal for the application, here you are: WD 8TB EasyStore's, when shucked, often contain a White Label drive. Older PSU power cables don't contain 3V3. Tape Guide: https://imgur.com/a/BFdmB ^ is perfect and shows exactly what you want to cover up. However, if you're impatient like myself, you wonder if Scotch Tape works. I am here to tell you it worked flawlessly for me. I used Duck Brand Invisible Tape (from Walmart) and followed the above guide. I had zero issues with temperature. In fact, I rebuilt my entire parity using this method, and ran my sever for several days with NO problems. Removal of the tape was a cakewalk. No residue or anything; make sure to use the under side so you don't scratch the pins up. I did break down and order Kapton tape to ensure a long lasting solution. I made sure to measure and find out exactly what size is ideal for this issue. For Kapton Tape that fits like a glove without measuring: " 1 Mil Kapton Tape (Polyimide) - 1/8" " https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006ROKY68/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I hope this helps!

  6. I get it :P. It's a character flaw of my own doing. I ended up trying scotch tape for haha's. Here are the results: I'm going to order some Kapton to replace it, but for the meantime, it's running beautifully.
  7. I found the Broadcom drivers for that controller. So, I'm ready to update it immediately and get it installed in my NAS. Question -- once I have the card installed and working properly, is it in my best interest to connect all of my existing drives through the HBA instead of the standard mobo SATA ports? Does it offer any benefit? Excuse my ignorance, I just found out about these when I realized I was out of free sata ports.
  8. Thanks for getting back to me. I am leaning toward getting the Kapton tape or removing the 3.3v pin by plucking it out. Not sure which. Those 3.3v molex adapters and their ability to catch fire has me thoroughly paranoid enough to stay away. I'm too lazy and stubborn to find one that I am confident to be problem free.
  9. Question: What breakout cable do you suggest from Amazon at a reasonable cost? Around $10 or so.
  10. ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------; I created the above post to explain what solutions worked for me ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------; https://www.ebay.com/itm/SAS9201-8I-LSI-Mega-RAID-8-Port-SATA-SAS-6G-PCI-Express-2-0-Controller-Card/152942435787 According to a friends advice, he said I should just go with one of these. I was quick to pull the trigger, and just noticed that it NOT a SAS9211, the latest model. I've been searching through Google for some definitive answers on this card and lot of posts seem to be having issues with it. All I know is I want to "flash it to IT mode" if it isn't already there. Any help or general advice is greatly appreciated. I still need to buy the correct cable, and the name escapes me. More importantly, the reason I bought this was due to the lack of anymore SATA ports on my motherboard. I just received 2x EMAZ 8tb WD Whites via Easystore shuck. Will I still need to the modify the 3.3v PIN? What firmware should I use? A Huge thread on the topic specifies the -16i... not my -8i. Thanks!!!
  11. I backed up my Unifi Settings from my Windows Unifi Client and then closed it out. Ran this docker and imported the settings. All of my devices say "Disconnected". How do I go about fixing this? The setup pages seem to be filled out correctly, but it is simply not showing up as working.
  12. Right. That's the thing... I haven't changed anything other than routing it through Privoxy.
