Rookie (2/14)



  1. Hi, as of recently none of my torrents will download. They all show a status of permission denied, timed out, or host not found. I use BINHEX - PRIVOXYVPN. I have not changed any settings in any containers recently.
  2. Kitchen infrared thermometer. I can tell it's way off given how hot it reads off the bat when it's only just booted. At the moment I've had near record stabality for some reason, so I'll hold off from changing any BIOS settings for now. I will give that a go when I do reboot though, thank you.
  3. Hi, even when my server just boots up it's CPU temp is always unusually high (does not feel this hot that's for sure). I've replaced the thermal paste with some Arctic Silver, but it didn't change a thing. I've had some server instability issues, which are currently unresolved unless my system remains stable. I've replaced the RAM and GPU. The next thing may be the CPU (the Ryzen from this period are prone to some sort of SEGV issue, but for the life of me I can't get any of the tests to work, so AMD won't RMA it before I can prove it's the issue). I've been ignoring this temperature issue, but it could play a part in this?
  4. Thank you, I found this post and will have a go at it tonight. My server has had 20 hours uptime, which is the most for a very long time. Fingers crossed it continues.
  5. When booting my server up, the below error appears and the OS never loads. The fix so far is to boot into GUI mode which seems to work. I can then access it over the network.
  6. The server crash issue is still not resolved. In the process of attempting to fix this issue (updating BIOS), I now have another issue when booting up. The fix so far is to boot into GUI mode which seems to work.
  7. Thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately, or fortunately, I'm super familiar with those threads and have them all bookmarked. I've tried everything suggested. The only thing I haven't tried is my AMD Ryzen 5 1600 for segfaults. I did try installing Debian on a USB and running the Oxalin Ryzen Test with these instructions but kept getting some error on the very last step related to RAM already being mounted somewhere and the test wouldn't run. The year month date stamp is within the production period where there were significant faults though. Beyond that I'm not sure at this stage. I do have two errors that may have something to do with it which I've attached. The really odd thing about all of this is that this system and OS was stable for sooooooooooooooooooo long without a single hitch. I really don't understand what the issue could be. No hardware changes, only upgrades to UNRAID version...
  8. Sorry about the delay on a response to your suggested troubleshooting steps. I ended up embarking on a very lengthy RMA process with my ECC Kingston RAM. I ran a memtest and found a lot of errors, but there is no servicing in Australia, so it had to go to Taiwan. So months later, I have new RAM in the machine, and the same issue is occuring. It was initially stable for 40 or so hours, and now the recurring issue is much the same. So the problem is still not solved!
  9. I haven't yet, that's a good idea. I've probably had too much faith in my RAM just due to the fact that it's ECC. It could be the culprit. I'll let you know how it goes in a few days, thanks for the advice.
  10. I actioned all of these suggestions and even installed a hest sink on my SSD cache drive. Thank you for the advice. It booted first time! Then it was stable for 30 or so hours (more than double my normal stability time) then this error occurred again. This morning I checked in on my server though Open VPN and success, two hours later and it won't connect and my Plex is down. I thought that the problem was solved, but it's obviously back. I'm really keen to build a list of other potential fixes, and I'll be grateful for any suggestions. Should I try things like C6 states enabled and PSU Idle Mode to Auto? These are set this way to circumvent Ryzen issues, but from my understanding they may be addressed through OS and BIOS? Just an idea...
  11. Thank you kindly for the advice regarding the BIOS version, I've gone ahead and updated it. Before I updated, it would take me 1-2 hard resets for it to post BIOS and load UNRAID (it would just be a black screen with no posting at all until I held the power button down). I've noticed now that it takes 6-7 hard resets to get it to post and boot into UNRAID. Maybe unrelated... Anyhow, I managed to capture this from the server which may give more insight into what's causing these issues: Any help much apprecaited!
  12. Hi all, I've investigated potential causes for this and exhausted all obvious and easily accessible solutions, so I thought that I'd reach out and see if anyone is able to offer some insights. My server has probably been stable for over a year, and only as of very recently (with no hardware or software changes at all) it has been either: Going into a standby mode where the power LED is flashing and drives are spooled down or; Going into a state where it is completely unresponsive and unreachable. If I wake it from standby from state 1, it will simply resume as per state 2. In either state, the connected screen and peripherals do not work, other than to push it from state 1 to 2 with the keyboard. My system: Kingston Technology ValueRAM 16GB 2400MHz DDR4 ECC CL17 DIMM 2Rx8 Desktop Memory Some of the things I've tried: 1. Disabling C6 States 2. Power supply idle mode set to Typical Idle Current 3. Moved the Flash Drive to USB2 slot 4. Disabled Dynamix S3 Sleep plugin My suspicions: 1. Potentially something to do with Plex, but can't be certain (as I said, nothing has changed). 2. Potentially something to do with my network, as when I powered my Desktop on which is sitting on the same desk and connected to the same dual port power over ethernet adapter, the server spooled down into its odd standby mode. However, I think this was just a serious coincidence. Thank you in advance for any assistance, this one is really baffling me. Log as of this morning (I've never seen this stuff related to pcieport before, but it may be relevant): Please find color-coded System Log attached or below: System Log.html
  13. Cheers. Do you know what this setting may be called on different boards? I have an ASRock can't find anything similar (I'm looking under Advanced > CPU Config > North Bridge Config etc.
