  1. The above posts talk about not being able to change the admin password - I want to keep my current settings during an update and not having to re-setup everything and to confirm I had/have changed the admin password using the console access, in my case not only does it change my admin password my user account also seems to be disabled. I have to go into user management and reset the password and then finally re-download the client.ovpn file to my devices.
  2. Hi All QQ, every time I run an update it resets my admin account password and I have to download a new client.ovpn to my clients. Is there anyway to update without having my details reset? Thanks I.
  3. Wow, thanks the update :) I'll take a look at that.
  4. I had cut and pasted them, so I deleted them and typed them in my hand and that seems to have got it active, well kinda. The film starts and I can see Plex is transcoding via the GPU however the CPU usage is quite high. This is just one stream.
  5. Thanks for replying, yes I have a pass and from memory its encodes
  6. Just checking as that is what I have done, I've also tested with "all" and "0"
  7. Not that I have noted as yet. Did you notice any? One thing Plex is still not using the graphics card. I've made the changes to the docker NVIDIA_DRIVER_CAPABILITIES (all) and NVIDIA_VISIBLE_DEVICES (my GPU UUID) and enabled hardware transcoding in the plex menu but it still defaults to software. Do I include the whole UUID string including the start of the string "GPU-"
  8. Ohhh, I missed that, it now seems I have a Nvidia gpu in UnRaid. Thanks a lot Xaero :)
  9. I got the new card installed however I am getting the same error as with the GT710 the driver will not initialise. when I boot directly into UnRaid it works, something in ESXi is blocking even tho I have passed through the hardware.
  10. Yes, well it was recognized in Device Manager. I'm getting hold of a HP NVIDIA QUADRO P620. Will try that when it arrives.
  11. Hi All I'm running UnRaid 6.6.7 as a VM on ESXi 6.7. I'm passing my GT 710 graphics card through (see pic) however the nvidia setting reports it can't see the card correctly: "Unable to dertermine the device handle got GPU 0000:1B:00.0: Unknown error" Checking the logs I see the following entry: kernel: NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x23:0x56:483) kernel: NVRM: rm_init_adapter failed for device bearing minor number 0 kernel: NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x23:0x56:483) kernel: NVRM: rm_init_adapter failed for device bearing minor number 0 Has anyone got it to work with UnRaid as a VM? Anyone give me any pointers?
  12. Thanks for the reply, now this is based on my experience but at this moment in time I have to disagree. Using ESXi as a bare metal type 1 Hypervisor gives a lot more flexibility when running different types of VM's. This started when I wanted to run GNS3 (Network Simulator) for Cisco training. This came in a .ova image. Now for the life of me I just could not get it to work with UnRaid. I converted it to a QCOW2 but it just would not boot. I started to look at KVM but I had just built my new UnRaid box and really just wanted them all to run in my current tin. With ESXi it just runs, along with my Server 2016 Essentials, MacOS, SteamOS etc. etc. With the raid hardware pass-through, UnRaid works without any issues (touch wood) and using PlopExec I can simply drop into my bios boot manager and boot directly into UnRaid if I want to. Also using ESXi also allows me to use better (in my option) remote console access apps for example currently I am using workstation pro. It has better virtual network switching options, memory allocation and VM options. Again this is my experience, I'm no expert. I know enough to be dangerous I like the idea of UnRaid running in its own VM, it has all my family pics, our TV shows and films, safely working away and I now don't need a second box for playing with other development ideas (with thanks to UnRaid I am looking to installing a Docker type OS to learn/play with).
  13. My old X230 has a max screen size of 1366 x 768 and I have the text size at 125%. Currently the GUI sizing is either extending the width or cutting off some of the buttons (see attachements) Anyway I can auto resize it to fit my screen.
