  1. Do you see any advanced virtualization tools coming to unraid such as VM cloning, snapshots, IP management of VM’s, oversee other VM’s of other unraid machines, and managing those?
  2. This raid5 with BTRFS sounds exactly what I'm looking for. I'm gonna use Esxi and put unraid on top of it, and share back an NFS share to ESXi for the VMs. When I run out of space, just add another disk, and dynamically increase the possible NFS share. One more question: if a disk fails does it has to be the same size or larger than the disk it will be replacing?
  3. You keep mentioning that you run it in raid5 cache pool. Is this something that unraid offers? Or you run a dedicated raid controller and place all your disks in to raid5, and then pass that as an individual disk to unraid? Could you please describe what kind of setup you have? Also I haven't been experimenting with the cache pool functions that much, so I'm not really sure what options are there. Yes, I'm fully aware of this, as I will be running multiple VMs there will be hardly any read writes to the disks (only temporary during a cloning procedure), maximizing random read and writes would be my primary goal, so the VMs would have better responsiveness.
  4. A 4TB QVO SSD costs around 100 euro/TB which is about the cost of a brand new SAS drive also. And if you are looking at 2.5 form factor, hard drives are getting pretty expensive if you are planning to go for high density on a small form factor. I do not even know if there are any 2.5" drives that support 4TB... So SSDs are really breaking into the market now. I'm looking for some drives for a R620, and thus I cannot go the 3.5" form factor, but still want large capacity, then I'll have to go with SSDs. Can you do dynamic updates to this pool? Could you explain exactly how your setup works? I'm planning to start out with only 2-3 disks, but wanna go up to 10 disks. Is it possible to dynamically grow this pool without having much downtime? I do not want to have a full backup of the data that I'll be running on this server. All I need is a single disk redundancy, that is why I looked into UnRaid for this solution.
  5. Any update on this? Almost 3 years later, an all SSD array is more realistic than ever. Can we expect unraid to support this anytime soon officially?
  6. Thank you very much. Don't worry I'm not in an extreme hurry. Please let me know if you have any news for me.
  7. Both of them have exactly the same result after running `ifconfig` in the terminal. Only getting loopback network.
  8. do you mean <interface type='bridge'> <mac address='52:54:00:ec:58:ee'/> <source bridge='br0'/> <model type='virtio'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x04' slot='0x00' function='0x0'/> </interface> this part should be <interface type='bridge'> <mac address='52:54:00:ec:58:ee'/> <source bridge='br0'/> <model type='e1000'/> (or later rtl8139) <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x04' slot='0x00' function='0x0'/> </interface> ?
  9. I haven't find any great fast way to paste the result here other than a screenshot. But here is that:
  10. Do you know how could I install such drivers without being able to download it ?
  11. What VNC viewer are you trying to use on your Mac? Try to use chicken. That always worked for me. For installation I recommend you to use VNC, while if you run I recommend you do a passthrough. (this will require you to have a GPU in your built though)
  12. @jonp This is all I can see. (version 13.2) Even though I have a br0 network configured, I can't seem to have access to the network card.
  13. I'm trying to set this all up, and I got the VM working now, thanks to you! However, I was still unable to connect to the internet using this method. I'm using an openSUSE vmdk as an image, and it seems like no matter what kind of modification I do, I will not be able to pass the network controller to the vm. Any tips for this? (I have a bunch other VMs running parallel, each using br0 interface, they all able to communicate on ipv6/4.)
