  1. Since posting I've found that I can access the disk's via ssh terminal still as they are mounted in Linux, and I've begun copying there contents off onto an unassigned disk approx 2.5TB of data as I don't think this could cause any further harm.
  2. It got hot here today at least 40c, and my server was running in a warm air conditioned room all day when I noticed that one of my mounted unassigned disks wasn't working. I checked Unraid and found that it was properly mounted however two disks on the array had been disabled these are two of my oldest disks that are both on a separate PCIe controller card. Now in an attempt to fix this I restarted my server not knowing I should have downloaded my diagnostic logs first, both drives appear to be healthy according to smart and a short test on one of them has also passed. I have the logs since the reboot which are pretty useless I think but I also have the most recent log saved in my Unraid flash logs folder but even this is confusing because it appears my system clock was wrong at some point recently. I have twin parity drives running and they where last checked a couple of weeks ago and Unraid believes they are still valid if I need to rebuild, though I do not have ECC memory on my sever so I'm terrified of idea of doing my first rebuild. So my thinking is that in the heat today perhaps the controller error'd causing a fault on both drives which made Unraid disable them both, but unless I have the log file there's no way of knowing for sure. I'll attach the two most recent syslog.txt files and the drive's smart logs to this post. I put my Unraid server to sleep each night and I suspect that I have lost the log between the the sleep of the server last night and the start/shutdown today on finding the disabled disks. Please let me know what I should do next, if it was a single drive I would probably be rebuilding it right now, but because it is two on the one controller I'm not sure how I should proceed, for example maybe I should backup the data on the drives before I attempt to rebuild them? if that's even possible.

  3. So there's hope then good, now I just need to learn how to write shell scripts in Linux I guess. Next question when unRAID starts without the GUI and no Autorun VM, you get a login prompt. I'm suspecting this might be a problem for my scripting intentions perhaps?
  4. Once upon a time back when I was a young PC gamer enthusiast, I was learning out of necessity how to use a command prompt (DOS) for the first time, and I quickly learned that I needed to manage my system memory configuration (conventional, extended and expanded remember those) via autoexec.bat and config.sys files so I could get all the extra super-cool special effects of my cockpit exploding in the Original Wing Commander games! To name but one example, in doing so I learned of the power of batch files and eventually the CHOICE.EXE command, this allowed me to create elaborate autoexec.bat files that contained separate system starup configurations for all my favourite demanding games of the time. Since using unRAID on my main rig as a two-in-one NAS/Server + Games machine I've wanted the ability to choose at the very least the VM to startup and it would also be nice to be able to pick specific Dockers to load while we're at it. Via a boot menu like I'm describing above, like a GRUB multi-boot I'd like a few seconds to pick another VM if I so choose else boot into my default VM, without having to pull out my phone/tablet to start a different VM on my PC. I thought perhaps the unRAID GUI mode could facilitate this but because it initiates the systems Graphics system I can't use it to start a VM loading on the same GPU. I know Virtualbox has an optional module that allows for command line control of VMs, is what I'm asking for possible with unRAID currently? Could an elaborate script be used to do what I'm suggesting perhaps? And am I the only one who wants this?
  5. Perhaps a better request would be to help facilitate the current/necessary passthrough "ugly" solution, for example, have an extra option added under advanced, that allows you to specify an NVIDIA GPU BIOS ROM ".dump" file. I'm a new trial user currently trying to set up my first server with a Windows 10 gaming VRM on a Ryzen 1700X CPU and a GTX 1080 GPU, and while troubleshooting my black screen passthrough problems anytime I change anything in a VRM's config the <rom file='EXAMPLE.dump'/> edit to the XML is lost making for a very unpleasant new user experience. Even better would be a further option/button to automate the dumping of a GPU BIOS ROM file for its use as stated above, within the advanced options screen itself.
