    [SOLVED] Can't write files to unraid

    Im just happy it worked. I made a bug repport of this issue. My theory is that the user has write acces on the share but its still root that is owner, therefore no write access. [emoji4] Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    [SOLVED] Can't write files to unraid

    I had similar issue. I solved by initiating new permissions for the share(s) in unraid. I dont know if you have already tried that? Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    Turn on IOMMU Gigabyte EX58-UD3R

    As stated before in this thread, both CPU and mitherboard (chipset) and BIOS need to support vt-d. I have had notherboards equal to yours, and I researched it quite alot. I found that X58 chipset does support vt-d but is not included as an option i BIOS. i7-920 or other CPU's in the serie support vt-d. But a Xeon in lga 1366 should. Check on intel ark before investing. But back to your chipset. I found a beta bios somewhere, where i cant remember, but it claimed to give the option in BIOS to enable vt-d. But my advice is to invest in either a workstation motherboard or server motherboard. Since you still have to invest in a CPU anyways, maybe its time to upgrade. Should you live in DK close to Copenhagen, then i have a CPU fitting your board that support vt-d, but then you still need the special BIOS... Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  5. unRAID server plus ver 6.5.3 SMB When adding a share with restrictions (only tested with Samba) read/write access is not given to Windows 10 (only Windows version I tested with) despite choosing so in the list with users. I made sure that user and password match in both unRAID and Windows. But I succeeded in fixing this by giving the share new permissions under tools->new permissions. I am not at all graced with knowledge to assist any further. But I am ready to provide additional info should it be necessary. /Alphahelix xeon-diagnostics-20180918-0843.zip

    Will parity check speeds improve with upgrade?

    In my case i went from (if memory serves me) arround 28 hours for parity check (8TB) to little over 24 hours. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    Will parity check speeds improve with upgrade?

    I went from a tyan S7012 (2 X5660) to a supermicro X9dri-lnf4 (2 E5-2690) I got a nice speed increase. But I would not upgrade because of that alone. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    Add Portuguese Keyboard Layout for KVM VNC

    I will second that. It may sound like its the same language, but Brazilian Portuguese and European Portuguese is quite different. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    Data disk parity question

    I am still 100% sure it have had data or at least did not show up as unmountable. Wether or not the process of format/preclear was performed sufficiently enough, here I can honestly not remember how I did it. But data has been on the disk. Question is, if I format the drive now when it is unmountable (also in parity) then I guess whatever data it did hold is already gone now. or am I mistaken?

    Data disk parity question

    I KNOW it was running fine friday/saturday. From sunday to tuesday (at my OP) the error presented itself. I honestly does not remember how I prepared the drive. But I do know it had a partition on it, now it seems the partition on Disk8 is gone even from parity. But question is if there is anything I can do from here or just accept the loss and format the drive and thus removing data and problems.

    Data disk parity question

    You where right! it is now done with parity rebuild. And it is unmountable once again. Will the problem go away if I replace the 6TB disk with a new disk? or will Unraid simply write bad data from parity once again? If so... how do I salvage the data, as the data seems fine in emulated mode.

    Data disk parity question

    Im quite sure. But I have already made up my mind. I will order a new Ironwolf 8TB disk when I have saved up. I do not want to risk one disk to compromise the array. (I remember from my biology classes that wolf are pack animals, so I think its best to continue with Ironwolf disks... I know bad joke... But at least I have humor!) But Johnnie, thank you for your assistance, it is much appreciated.

    Data disk parity question

    It looks like I can delete the files I spoke of before. so I think you got to the root cause of my problems. So I just have to format the drive (thinking of a preclear might be good) and the save up for a new replacement drive.
