  1. Thanks a lot @Craig, I should have payed more attention to the release note. After completing the steps you linked all is back to normal. Thanks again!
  2. Hi, I have the exact same issue on my build. It used to work but for some reasons, plex is not using my igpu anymore but is rather using the cpu so every time i try to transcode my cpu takes a huge hit and plex goes in buffering. If anyone has an idea....
  3. Hi, Not sure that this is going to help you, but I am running the same motherboard and here the software versions I've got: Firmware Revision: 01.23.04 Firmware Build Time: 11/15/2019 BIOS Version: 1.1 BIOS Build Time: 08/14/2019 Redfish Version: 1.0.1 Thanks to Tybio post I was able to configure the motherboard to use IGPU by changing from "Auto" to "IGFX" in this bios version. By the way, I also confirm that doing so allows for hardware transcoding with the Plex Docker, but it kills the IPMI video output. This is a small bummer but on the bright side the remot
  4. So, my server has been up and running for about a week now. Since I have installed it in my attic, the IPMI feature of the Supermicro motherboard comes in handy. Quick tip, the password for the IPMI is on a sticker on the motherboard. Thus far thanks to @SpaceInvaderOne tutorials I have able to configure various dockers: DuckDNS Krusader Sonarr / Radarr / Jacket / Deluge VPN I am working now on installing and configuring: Plex (I want to use my CPU iGPU for transcoding, I have tested a software transcode but it eats up all the CP
  5. I was hopping that the night would be enough but I just checked and after 7 hours I am only at 70% of the Pre-Read phase. On the bright side, both 8TB drives are being pre cleared at the same time so I "should" be able to move data around tomorrow evening.
  6. At long last, the beast is up and running. Turns out I was overthinking the CPU cooler choice way to much. For now I did not do any cable management, just power it up and start the Pre Clear of the 2 8TB drives. This will take the better part of the day. Once done, I plan to use Krusader to move my date from the old Synology to Unraid.
  7. Quick update. I have put together the motherboard, the CPU and the RAM on made so measurements inside and outside the case to try to find a compatible CPU cooler. I have settled of a Noctua NH-D15S even if I am not 100% it will work. Did not foreseen that the CPU cooler choice would be such a pain.
  8. Hi, At long last, the components have been delivered today. I'll do a proper unboxing later. Regards
  9. WIth a lot less drives / SSDs. Have you also switch to bigger disks and no cache?
  10. Update on the BOM: Motherboard: Supermicro X11SCA-F 320€ CPU: Intel Xeon E-2278G 650€ RAM: MicronMTA18ADF2G72AZ-2G6E1 200€*2 = 400€ Case: SupermicroGS5A-753B 240€ HDD: Ironwolf 8TBST8000VN004 255€*3 = 765€ SSD: CrucialCrucial MX500 2.5" 1To 133€*2 = 266€ USB: keySandiskSDCZ33-032G-G35 17€ CPU Cooler : no idea at this point, I might have to order everything in order to measure the clearance since I was not able to find any details Total: 2770€ This is way mo
  11. I am still putting my BOM together but from what i've looked at 8TB drives seems to be the sweet post on price vs capacity ratio. I've looked at your link, and it seems that the configuration I am working on based on Xeon E-22xx is a bit cheaper. Take since with a grain of salt since I live in europe thus the prices might not be complexly comparable.
  12. Do you mean that Plex and MariaDB (somehow) share the NVMe drive or do you have one drive for each?
  13. Thanks for the feedback, I might have misread, will look into it again. This beging said, for NAS usage my crappy home network will never deliver this kind of creasy speeds. My last test in the garage with the pc hooked to the same switch as the NAS picked at 270Mbps. I am sure that it would be great for thinks happening inside the NAS itself, this is why I want to have the option of using the 4x M.2 slot for a NVMe SSD for a windows VM. What kind of other applications would benefit of such high speeds for cache drives.
  14. Hi, The more I read the forum, the more it is complicated to fix my BOM, so many possibilities with Unraid 🙂 I have dug a bit the storage options and came to the following conclusion. Well before conclusions, first my findings. According to what I have read in several threats, it seems that the performance gain is quite minimum between a SATA SSD and NVMe SSD when it comes to cache. With this in mind, I ran some tests in my home. My synology NAS is currently seating in the garage and even though is it connected by RJ45 cables, the cabling is a f
  15. Thanks to both of you for your feedback, I'll have a look at both options.
