  1. Hi. I have several drvies, about 10 of them. 1 TB SSD Cache, plugged onto motherboard, 1 3TB HDD, plugged to M/B as parity, the rest are a bunch of sata 2 speed drives, 1, 2 TB, connected to Dell Perc H310 controller. I have 4 SAS 3 drives incoming. How do I integrate it to my array? Currently, my HBA controller is flashed to IT mode, where all SATA drives are currently connected, except for 1 or 2, cache, parity. Onboard, I have 6 ports, 2 are already occupied. Does my HBA have to be flashed to a different mode to make use of sas controller? When sas controller flashed to IT mode, can it handle 4 drives of sata, and 4 drives of sas? The sata will be using SFF8087 breakout cables, while the sas will be using a different type of cable, I presume? Both type of breakout cables on the same hba card? If this is possible, shall I group all the sas drive into 1 share? These are brand new sas drives. Do we allow spindown? Any other usage scenarios you can share?

    Incorporating SAS drives to existing array

    @johnnie.black, spin down won’t work with sas driveshaft, but will still do on SATA? Even when they are using the same controller? The sas drives I’m about to use are new ones, sas 3.without spindown, will they use up a lot of power?
  3. @snowboardjoeJust wondering whether you've gone through your upgrade already. Taking a look at your previous motherboard, it says it supports up to 16 GB memory. If that is your only concern, why not source for cheap used memory on ebay?
  4. My mover is not moving shows out of my cache drive. It keeps on attempting to move files to drives that are full, and finally, failing. Drives that are still free are included in the share, but not being utilized. I'm set to High Water. Attaching my diagnostics here. tower-diagnostics-20190213-1627.zip
  5. Hi. I see it now. The files are existing on a drive that isn't supposed to be part of a share. Might be a manual move I've done earlier. What causes these files to come out " .DS_Store"
  6. I see what you're seeing. It doesn't say to which drive it's trying to move it to?
  7. hi. .DS_Store file seems to be everywhere on my folder. But there are files that aren't in /mnt/cache/Media that aren't being moved.
  8. Hi. Please see attached. tower-diagnostics-20190215-2231.zip
  9. Hi. Just want to update, that I did fix the XFS filesystem. It's working now. But still, shows are left in the cache drive. My conditions are, Split level 3. I have Media/ TV/ Show name/ Season #s. All shows can be on different drives, but each season has to be on the same drive. Disks 1-3 are full. They don't have season 4 of Show A. But Show A in cache drive doesn't get moved even with Disk 4, 5 and 6 very free. tower-diagnostics-20190215-1314.zip
  10. I am currently using Unraid 6.6.0, with the following specs: Intel Xeon E3-1240v2, 16 GB memory, VM installed in cache, and my cache is a Crucial MX500, 1 TB SSD. I passed through an Nvidia GTX1070 video card, via a x16 to x8 PCIE riser card. I checked my motherboard manual, and it's PCIE 3.0 x8 slot. My motherboard has an Intel NIC, and conenected it to an HP Gigabit Switch. My VM is running Windows 10, and I assigned 4 GB to the VM. I am using an Intel NUC to access my VM via wired Gigabit network. I use moonlight. When I access my VM, the mouse lags, and it feels like it's running remote control. You don't feel 'native experience.' 🙂 How do I improve on this?
  11. RDP doesn't cut it though. So apart from Moonlight, I don't have any other idea.
  12. @johnnie.black, thanks for your help, got it fixed already!
  13. @Warrentheo, I gave it a try, and got this: VM creation error XML error: The PCI controller with index='0' must be model='pcie-root' for this machine type, but model='pci-root' was found instead
  14. Thank you @Warrentheo. Will give it a shot. @jordanmw, then my question is, what is causing lag in mouse. It's the main thing that annoys me. I'm streaming 1080p. I'm using wired 1 Gbe, my Intel nuc has Intel Nic, my switch is HP Gigabit switch, and my Supermicro board has dual Intel Nic, with only 1 nic being used.
  15. @johnnie.black, you are correct. I am experiencing problems with this drive. But a restart will usually get it back online. I'll follow the instructions above. But how can a single drive that is defective stop the mover script from moving files to other drives that are working?
  16. Hi @Warrentheo, thank you for your input. I always thought though my games aren't in much hurry (except for Fortnite), it won't be CPU intensive. Come to think of it, you are right. Since simulation is being done, it will use up a lot of CPU power. And I also agree 8 GB is required. I'll try to assign 3 cores/ 3 threads to it, so at least I get around 3.5 cores . Is it safe to change VM to Q35? Do I just select Q35, and save, and start? I saw this from Unraid wiki- Is it still suggested? If you're sayign Q35 is the newer system (chipset), then I'm all for it as well.
  17. I assigned 2 cores, 2 threads to it. The games I'm trying to play is Fortnite, and Tropico 4, via Steam, Cities Skylines Via Steam. Of the 3 games, I think Fortnite has the most issue, as the later two games are not in any hurry . I can bump it to 8 GB, but I'm not sure if that will improve my mouse response? <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?> <domain type='kvm' id='1'> <name>Windows 10 again</name> <uuid>3504bd7b-e5bb-828c-8e9d-aa680ef8a678</uuid> <description>test #2</description> <metadata> <vmtemplate xmlns="unraid" name="Windows 10" icon="windows.png" os="windows10"/> </metadata> <memory unit='KiB'>4194304</memory> <currentMemory unit='KiB'>4194304</currentMemory> <memoryBacking> <nosharepages/> </memoryBacking> <vcpu placement='static'>4</vcpu> <cputune> <vcpupin vcpu='0' cpuset='1'/> <vcpupin vcpu='1' cpuset='5'/> <vcpupin vcpu='2' cpuset='3'/> <vcpupin vcpu='3' cpuset='7'/> </cputune> <resource> <partition>/machine</partition> </resource> <os> <type arch='x86_64' machine='pc-i440fx-3.0'>hvm</type> <loader readonly='yes' type='pflash'>/usr/share/qemu/ovmf-x64/OVMF_CODE-pure-efi.fd</loader> <nvram>/etc/libvirt/qemu/nvram/3504bd7b-e5bb-828c-8e9d-aa680ef8a678_VARS-pure-efi.fd</nvram> </os> <features> <acpi/> <apic/> </features> <cpu mode='host-passthrough' check='none'> <topology sockets='1' cores='2' threads='2'/> </cpu> <clock offset='localtime'> <timer name='rtc' tickpolicy='catchup'/> <timer name='pit' tickpolicy='delay'/> <timer name='hpet' present='no'/> </clock> <on_poweroff>destroy</on_poweroff> <on_reboot>restart</on_reboot> <on_crash>restart</on_crash> <devices> <emulator>/usr/local/sbin/qemu</emulator> <disk type='file' device='disk'> <driver name='qemu' type='raw' cache='writeback'/> <source file='/mnt/cache/VMs/Windows 7/vdisk1.img'/> <backingStore/> <target dev='hdc' bus='virtio'/> <boot order='1'/> <alias name='virtio-disk2'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x04' function='0x0'/> </disk> <disk type='file' device='cdrom'> <driver name='qemu' type='raw'/> <source file='/mnt/user/iso/virtio-win-0.1.102.iso'/> <backingStore/> <target dev='hdb' bus='ide'/> <readonly/> <alias name='ide0-0-1'/> <address type='drive' controller='0' bus='0' target='0' unit='1'/> </disk> <controller type='usb' index='0' model='ich9-ehci1'> <alias name='usb'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x07' function='0x7'/> </controller> <controller type='usb' index='0' model='ich9-uhci1'> <alias name='usb'/> <master startport='0'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x07' function='0x0' multifunction='on'/> </controller> <controller type='usb' index='0' model='ich9-uhci2'> <alias name='usb'/> <master startport='2'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x07' function='0x1'/> </controller> <controller type='usb' index='0' model='ich9-uhci3'> <alias name='usb'/> <master startport='4'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x07' function='0x2'/> </controller> <controller type='pci' index='0' model='pci-root'> <alias name='pci.0'/> </controller> <controller type='ide' index='0'> <alias name='ide'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x01' function='0x1'/> </controller> <controller type='virtio-serial' index='0'> <alias name='virtio-serial0'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x03' function='0x0'/> </controller> <interface type='bridge'> <mac address='52:54:00:ea:df:3b'/> <source bridge='br0'/> <target dev='vnet0'/> <model type='virtio'/> <alias name='net0'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x02' function='0x0'/> </interface> <serial type='pty'> <source path='/dev/pts/0'/> <target type='isa-serial' port='0'> <model name='isa-serial'/> </target> <alias name='serial0'/> </serial> <console type='pty' tty='/dev/pts/0'> <source path='/dev/pts/0'/> <target type='serial' port='0'/> <alias name='serial0'/> </console> <channel type='unix'> <source mode='bind' path='/var/lib/libvirt/qemu/channel/target/domain-1-Windows 10 again/org.qemu.guest_agent.0'/> <target type='virtio' name='org.qemu.guest_agent.0' state='disconnected'/> <alias name='channel0'/> <address type='virtio-serial' controller='0' bus='0' port='1'/> </channel> <input type='mouse' bus='ps2'> <alias name='input0'/> </input> <input type='keyboard' bus='ps2'> <alias name='input1'/> </input> <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='pci' managed='yes'> <driver name='vfio'/> <source> <address domain='0x0000' bus='0x02' slot='0x00' function='0x0'/> </source> <alias name='hostdev0'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x05' function='0x0'/> </hostdev> <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='pci' managed='yes'> <driver name='vfio'/> <source> <address domain='0x0000' bus='0x02' slot='0x00' function='0x1'/> </source> <alias name='hostdev1'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x06' function='0x0'/> </hostdev> <memballoon model='none'/> </devices> <seclabel type='dynamic' model='dac' relabel='yes'> <label>+0:+100</label> <imagelabel>+0:+100</imagelabel> </seclabel> </domain>
  18. Hi. Want to ask if I'm using an older processor, can Emby transcode using the discrete Nvidia GPU connected to the Unraid system? Or does it have to be transcoded by the processor?
  19. @w41g87, which are the usb passthrough settings?
