  1. Hi Wlshwzd, Did you ever find a solution for this? I asking as I have 8 drives with this error (yup lucky me, all at once) /Alphahelix
  2. Hi! First, super cool plugin. Its now super easy to install dockers and plugins Thanks! I hope it is ok to bring suggestions. I personally would love the idea of being able to tick and untick categories of interest. Right now you only have the option of choosing one category at a time. /Alphahelix
  3. Hi Uno, It is baked into the GPU itself. This is done to be able to provide video-feed through USB-C. But to minimize the complexity during production they leave the USB controller in the GPU even if they do not provide the graphics card a USB connector. Or at least this is what I think is happening. I am not in the GPU business but I makes sense to a have a basic platform and if only 10-15% of all graphic cards in a generation is without a USB connector and the controller is relative cheap, they left it in. /Alphahelix
  4. Unless you can be more specific about the setup it is hard to help more. It will be a whole lot if ifs and perhaps.
  5. Hi wan59 If your motherboard have PCIe slots, one option is to use PCIe extenders. But you my have a hard time finding a case to mount them in. But a mining rig could do the trick. /Alphahelix
  6. Hi all, I hope one of you can help me. I need 3 IP addresses, each on their own subnet, for one NIC. I have tried to give an example below: eth0 -> 192.168.1.x/24 eth1 -> 192.168.1.x/24 eth1:1 -> 192.168.3.x/24 eth1:2 -> 192.168.5.x/24 eth2 -> passthrough to pfSense eth3 -> passthrough to pfSense I have tried to look in the forums but I could not find a guide, I did find some threads, but I did not find a how-to. I then tried to look for a solution on the big bad internet. I tried t
  7. Hi all, I don't know if this is the right place, otherwise feel free to move the thread to the right place. I have for some days tried to get a 10GBe connection between my 2 unRAID servers. I have a "Chelsio Communications Inc T320 10GbE Dual Port Adapter" in each system. I just plugged in a DAC-cable and configured the IP for static. but nooooo that would be to easy, and it was. I found out that you MUST use the first port on this particualr NIC to get it to work!. The more you know. This is in hope others experience similar issues. Just trying to keep the
  8. Hi all, Anyone knows if this still works in 6.8.3, before I wreck my system? /Alphahelix
  9. A long shot... if changes was made to "dirty" memory, and there is a lot of unwritten cache, could that be the reason why the system can't free up enough memory to start the VM? I know I asked it as a question. The reason is I am not 100% sure myself, how the system would react to this situation. But it is a possibility, I think. /Alphahelix
  10. Hi All, First I hope this is the right forum, otherwise please move. TLDR: My server looks like the hunchback from Notre Dame... Well I have over some years build a Supermicro server and I have not been kind. For those interested here is a part list. Case: Supermicro SC846 M/B: X9DRI-LN4F+ CPU: 2x Intel Xeon E5-2630L v2 (2.4GHz) RAM: 24x16GB = 384GB HDD: total of 23 (one with a broken connector fixed by soldering an extansion cable directly to the PCB) SSD: 8x256GB = 1TB (RAID 10) Slot1: Asus HYPER M.2 X16 CARD with 4x256GB
  11. Hi, It depends on what services you run (like dockers). Personally I have 14 disks incl. 2 parity. I like to invoke the turbo write manually. and let unRAID deal with the normal operation as it sees fit. But a suggestion without any knowledge about anything, would be 2/3 with a polling time of 30s but this is nothing more than a shot i the dark. /Alphahelix
  12. I had an experience a few years back, where my unraid would spontanious restart or just power off. Not soft shutdown, but the pull the plug off. it tunred out to be a bad power supply unit. I do not know if it is the same in your case, but if you have a spare somewhere, I would try to replace it. You never know.
  13. As @trurl said, it is most likely a bad connection, try to replace the signal cable (SATA/SAS).
  14. Try to enter boot menu in bios during bootup (F12 on some systems) and manual select the USB , I have to do this everytime. if I set BIOS to boot directly automatically on the very same USB it stalls during the first bootloader. Try to see if this works for you.
  15. Hi all, I have compiled a list of selected disks showing the actual cost a year at 24h usage. I know these numbers are not realistic, but it is worst case scenario. I also find it easier to compare disk price taking into account watt usage and expected life time. I was kind of surprised to find out that if you do not like to shuck disks out of cases, the 16tb Exos disk is the cheapest according to price (incl watt price) / tb / expected life span I have attached a picture for quick reference, and an excel file for everyone to enter their
