  1. Guess I'll piggy back on this one:
  2. Before I mess things up, disk 5 went missing with a clean shutdown and startup I don't need all the space at this time can I just remove it from the array and run a parity check and the array will shrink accordingly? I put a replacement disk with data from another server in its place but its not seen so by preclear I probably have a cable issue in that slot position but need the system up as it runs both my DNS through pihole and my home assistant in the future I will remove the server from the rack but need it up for now is this doable?
  3. Yep right after I switched over to a VM they came out with native support for an SSD on the pi go figure but no regrets its been rock solid since starting it
  4. Yeah I tried that route but it was wonky and had too many issues I tried the recommended settings and just couldn't get a stable instance maybe something I was not doing but the method that I now have has been rock solid for a year or so with no complications related to the VM and I did this with the QCOW VM not sure if that's what makes it stable I install this on top of a linux VM
  5. Yep I had many problems as well I switched to a VM and never looked back it just works plus since it's the OS version you get the supervisor and access to all the other features like snap shots
  6. This should work sonoff s31 I have a half dozen flashed with Tasmota and integrated into home assistant
  7. Not a big deal but just noticed this I can't seem to find where the needed change is, any takers?
  8. Well with no wifi your options are limited have tried to install homeassistant directly on your pi this is really leaving unRAID out of the equation and this should be discussed on the homeassistant forums not sure why you are having problems with the qcow2 option I have all of the apps running
  9. What do you mean when you say "node" are you trying to create a node red flow? If you are trying to control relays why use a raspberry pi why not wire up a relay bank be it 2 ,4 ,or 8 relays with a nodemcu or a D1 mini and flash it with tasmota integrate with MQTT within homeassistant
  10. That is how I did it has been rock solid since install
  11. Yeah I can't complain about "only" in the context of the bigger picture but the rest of my network and gear run 1000Gbps not that it gets that but this seems like a bottleneck somewhere, I did move my windows key over to the vm but no change also having issue with Blue Iris license key not persistent after reboot have to keep re-adding it to remove the watermark, I'm a newb with vm's my only other vm is homeassistant and that has been incredibly stable so I thought I'd move my Blue Iris instance over to my unRAID server since it was the only service running on my 8 core Ryzen machine that has a GTX1080 in It definitely an underutilized machine and costing me power
  12. Any pointers on why? I went into network settings, advance settings no option for speed change, looked at my switch for port config reports 1000Gbps link - full disclosure this vm is solely for Blue Iris maybe the cameras are the reason don't sound right though seems to me to be a driver issue? Using the latest virtio drivers oh and this is a vanilla install of windows no license yet could it be that? I bow to your superior intellect on this one😂
  13. Have you looked into WireGuard that works great and easy to setup
  14. Is this not what your looking for it's listed with the same model number that you listed?
  15. 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
