  1. I fixed this issue by turning off wireguard VPN.. how weird.. wtf... cant have VPN then... so stupid
  2. when using an encrypted Volume, Does the array have to be mounted first ( Key File/Passphrase entered ) before Wireguard starts its services and ready to use?
  3. definition: OpenStack software controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, managed through a dashboard. In a server farm of 2 or more server you would feel that if you wanted to add additional resources, cpus, ram, disk storage space when one server is utilizing 100% of it, to expand in elasticity, OpenStack is the option. additionally in my case I just decommissioned a cpu crypto rig on 2 rack servers, I’m having a hard time reconditioning them for another purpose, I was thinking why can I not add theses servers to Unraid and
  4. Legacy auto boots on the dell t420, and I’ve given up on uefi boot mode. I’m sure there missing impi stuff the Unraid could work on. It be nice to control the fan speeds and other area on PowerEdge servers. I’m not sure where you have the unraid usb plugged into but mine is inserted internal. You could use The front USB ports as they are on same usb hub controller, either one is fine. The rear usb ports are on a different usb hub controller that do not communicate to the bootable USB ports and I can see where you may have to select manually ever time. Also another possibility is that you
  5. I recently moved my server to a new home along with me. Everything connected minus the Verizon Fios internet. As I wait for the service technician to come out. I wanted to utilize my local network, enjoy Plex etc.. I can ping unraid host ip. I can ssh unraid host ip. I can use a monitor and a keyboard on the Server to interact directly in the cli. what I cannot do or get working is to access the WebUI to enter in the encrypted pass key and start the array. entering in my local http://Tower or http://IP.IP.IP.ip redirects to this examp
  6. Most common residential ISP's in the past millennium turn and even at this present time participate in banning outgoing port 25 with absolutely no support to accommodate your request to open it. Make sure you thank the people who spam and send out 10's of thousands of news letters a day promoting bed bath and beyond coupons. If you are lucky and have a registered business in a residential area paying for Business Class service in a residential area Then this should not be an issue.. Q: What about using a SMTP relay, i.e sendgrid, sending 100 emails p/day for free possible with Poste.io Fre
  7. I honestly have to say, @SpaceInvaderOne, is on another level. Hats off to you, brilliant sir. I was able to passthrough an integrated on-board USB host controller, I didn't have to buy one, and the Focusrite Scarlet solo equipment freaking works.. I am (mind blown) .
  8. interesting suggestion. instead of using the on-board usb controller (even though the server has 8 usb 2.0 ports) just pass through a pcie card just for the kvm. I am willing to try it. Maybe I'll get 2, one for the hackintosh build. Might be a few days for the part to come in to test it out. Will adding a pcie usb card, resolve, the inability to hot swap usb devices to the KVM? currently, if anything gets unplugged from the KVM, while running, the device plugged in no longer works and either 1) reboot unraid 2) remove and add back the KVM.
  9. For Christmas and the new year, My wife has an Idea and wants to get into podcasting. Awesome, Lets Build a KVM, I got this. lol.. so 2 Choices Hackintosh, or Windows 10. ( rubs hands together) This is a great opportunity to upgrade Unraid from basic to Plus, because I was at 97% full, added a few 4TB hard drives moved a drive around to get 37%, a Mac Keyboard, Nvidia GPU, extra ram, and the Podcasting equipment, which is just a Focusrite Scarlett Solo studio pack 2nd gen on a boom arm with a shock mount and pop-filter. I had a previous setup with Windows 10KVM, Radeon HD5450, Dual Monitor
  10. Interesting, after my motherboard replacement , I have not bothered to update the bios from its original version v1 or lifecycle controllers iDrac, I’ve succumbed to the fact to just leave shit the way it is using legacy BIOS boot for unraid. It’s unfortunate that at the time of setting up that I was not able to boot UEFi and struggled with my setup. Everything been up and running 24/7 and at the end of the day that’s all that matters even though this was not my initial set up plan. Good looks and when time comes to make a change I’ll take a look at that settings once more. I’ve had some ser
  11. Thanks for the Guide.. I went to Micro Center to pick up an "open box" 2Tb WD Red for $70, and by the time I got back the 2nd attempt to rebuild the drive was successful. I had a hard time with the instructions though. When following the steps I accidentally unassigned the parity drive instead of Drive 2 and rebooted. By the time I realized that I was supposed to un-assign the suspected faulty drive, now showing with a green dot, due to confusion with steps 9-10-11 the only option was to resync the parity drive and didn't make sense to start all over, but to just follow through upgrading t
  12. I tried to look into this my self and read the Smart report and SMART overall-health self-assessment test result: PASSED on one of my disks. If someone would be so kind and help me out with a 2nd pair of eyes. I have rebuilt the disk once so far and this morning the X came back. I am rebuilding again. Pre history Parity = 1tb WD Black - brand new Drive 1 = 1tb WD Black - brand new Drive 2 = 1tb Seagate Barracuda - unknown Drive 3 = 1tb WD Green - shucked And its no surprise to me that yet another Seagate is showing signs of failing in my life. There seems to be a pile of dea
  13. So New (previously owned) Motherboard Came in, Yesterday, All is working Took me a bit to set up the BIOS legacy boot... Had to Diskpart the USB and copy the backup over to the same USB drive Diskpart list Disk select disk 1 clean create partition primary select partition 1 active format fs=fat32 quick label="UNRAID" exit And then I had to run the makebootable.bat file Server Back up and running and I am defiantly afraid to do any updates to the system board now.. I don't think ill find another T420 Mobo for $50 again. I did test UEFI, See it boots to the EFI jus
  14. [Day 3] The Update I did, timed out for unknown length of time, I woke up in the middle of the night to a screaming server (All Fans Full Blast) ready to take off. iDrac Initializing...stuck problem Soo Firmware update basically failed, So Server is Down for the count. I am attempting via Dell's UEFI bootable media to patch and update the firmware specifically for this server: https://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/04/sln296511/updating-dell-poweredge-servers-via-bootable-media-iso?lang=en https://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/04/sln296810/creating-a-bootable-usb-device-
  15. So I removed Mushkin Higher speed non-ECC Ram, Same issue. I did Check the USB and I have FSCK000-FSCK0010 REC files... I back them up. I even backed up the whole USB drive. Created a new 6.4.9 USB wEFI overwrote the Config folder with backup. Same.
