  1. Have you looked into WireGuard that works great and easy to setup
  2. Is this not what your looking for it's listed with the same model number that you listed? https://www.amazon.com/CRAFTSMAN-MAX-Cordless-Screwdriver-CMCF604/dp/B07ZK6GYRL/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=CRAFTSMAN+4V+MAX+Cordless+Screwdriver&qid=1604230961&sr=8-2
  3. SFP+ Mellanox Connect-X 2, I have 3 and work very well they were plug and play no config was done on my end and yes they were cheap
  4. 5. I'm running a mellanox card in mine and it works fine
  5. That's funny sure sounds like he never powered the drives up he only plugged in the sata cables otherwise he would have installed the drives in the cages sounds like he did not have the correct cables for the backplane or he was trying to squeeze ssd's inside the server and did not consider their power requirements I have ssd's in both the backplane and I also put an ssd sled into the cd drive for additional storage and if your really crafty there is still 1 sata 2 port on the motherboard but as he found out you need to pull power from somewhere
  6. I have the LSI 9211-8i in my R710 works fine was plug and play but if i remember correctly you can not use the slot that the raid card was/is in I think it was proprietary or something you should be good to go if you want to look into it I got mine from the art of server not sure how different they are to each other
  7. Well ran into my first problem, the vdisk is only 6G and is completely full I cannot find where to change the size it won't let me do it in the VM configuration tab if I select the installation file the option to put a size on the vdisk goes away I looked at the html for an indicator for a vdisk and its size but no luck anyone want to take a shot helping out I will be googling in the mean time ***UPDATE**** problem solved for once I googled something and on the first hit found the solution that never happens sudo qemu-img resize /mnt/user/domains/hassos_ova-4.6.qcow2 +32G
  8. Cautiously optimistic, I found this surfing youtube and I think this is it hope I'm not violating any forum policies but I've tried several options for running homeassistant but just couldn't get a stable environment but this is promising I want to keep it running on my unRAID box but never got a traditional vm to be stable (terrible at command line🙃) anyway will post if things turn south but I have timed a reboot against my virtualbox vm and its a bit faster with this setup https://youtu.be/TSYL2PWQ3C4
  9. I was running a pi but load times after changes were getting long in the tooth and the stories of sd card failure loomed I tried running the docker setup on my unRAID box but it was unstable would drop out often and had to reconfigure a few times I now run it on another machine windows 10 based with virtual box been rock solid, this is not to say that the docker approach is bad I may not have been able to sort out the issues and just got frustrated with it the new pi4 with 4-8 gigs of ram now with native support for an ssd boot drive is something I will test but right now virtual box has been really good to date
  10. Maybe I missed it but you didn't mention what model external drives you have can you just shuck them seems like a very popular option then building a low specced pc with new hardware should be doable I've did a little search for AMD bundles and they seem to be around your budget with a little tweaking this way you could expand upon it as budget allows
  11. Thanks yeah I'm not comfortable swapping hard drives with power up, I have a couple NAS drives just laying on top of my rack so I figure it would be good to have a cold swap drive just sitting in wait as they serve no other purpose
  12. I have a 12 bay hot swap case all full can I remove a drive replace with a new disk and preclear as a ready to go spare then just replace the original drive without any issues?
  13. As it implies moving my server from a tower to a rack mount not changing any hardware just a swap from what I've read seems straight forward has anything changed due to updates or can I simply move the hardware and all is good will not be concerned about which disk is on which port as I've read that won't be an issue my parity drive is easy to recognize as its the only seagate drive and all will now be hot swap so will be labeled during the refit anything else of note to be concerned with?
  14. Well I ran another parity check but before doing that I realized that when I removed the server from the rack that my UPS was disconnected so I'm thinking because of that it threw me the errors the last run showed no errors with the UPS disabled in settings
  15. Ran a parity check last night and it reported 2 errors where do I find where those errors are or what device has issues? homenas-diagnostics-20200725-1703.zip
