  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. This should work sonoff s31 I have a half dozen flashed with Tasmota and integrated into home assistant
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. That is how I did it has been rock solid since install
  8. 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
  9. 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😂
  10. Have you looked into WireGuard that works great and easy to setup
  11. Is this not what your looking for it's listed with the same model number that you listed?
  12. 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
  13. 5. I'm running a mellanox card in mine and it works fine
  14. 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
  15. 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
