    Linux Mint VM template.

    @Jetjockey Mint is based on Debian, Ubuntu. Try one of these, i guess both will work. Can't remember which one i have chosen. I have a 30GB vdisk attached whith a allocation of 7-8GB for a basic Mint 19 xfce install.

    No/Crackling Audio in 10.3.6 VM

    @Magicaldave please remove the part after from your xml in the first post. This key is publicly available, sure, but apple sued people for puplishing this key. If you watched the videos from Spaceinvaders you should already know this.
  3. @administrator recheck the msi fix after each Windows and Nvidia update. It happened twice for me now that the patched settings disappeared and i had to reapply them.
  4. @Jomp Try the "Libvirt Hotplug USB" plugin. In the VM tab you can attach a USB device to a running VM. Works for me with every Phone and Tablet i tested.
  5. Small info on my setup. I have one M.2 plugged in the top slot and one in the lower left. The right one is empty. If i remember correctly, if you're using a U.2 device, one of the M.2 slots won't work. If you use something on the U.2 port i guess, one of the M.2 won't never work and not like in your case, randomly fail. One case i can think of besides a faulty drive or faulty slot is if you occupy all your PCIe slots there might be some sharing of the lanes happen.
  6. @harshl Sorry i misread something. I thought your printer is connected to the UPS. As mentioned earlier, your UPS might be set to sensitive to power fluctuations. I remember an kinda similar behaviour in a small office couple years ago. From time to time the server they had, randomly decided to shutdown by the UPS. It was in kinda old building with really old wiring. After months of searching for the cause, the issue was found. The neigbour sometimes used some welding equipment in the basement and caused the UPS to think the power isn't clean enough and triggered the server to shutdown. Btw don't think that the settings you made in Windows are there until you change it by your own. With nearly every Windows update i have to reapply the MSI fix, not for all. Same for the power settings. I had it twice now, that the power plan was changed back to balanced from high performance. This happened on a test VM i randomly startup, install updates and shut it down again as well as on my main VM.
  7. That's the error message you should get if the reset bug happens. Can you please check if your VM power settings are set to performance and not to balanced. For me it looks like your VM goes into standby or sleep state. This could happen because it's idlling for to long or the UPS gives a signal to the controller software, both could be the reason. Make sure to disable any kind of software from the UPS inside the VM and disable sleep. And why the hell are you connecting your laser printer to an UPS? To shut it down safely during a power outake? These devices pulling lots of power when heating up or during a print job. You don't really need to connect it to a UPS. The main reason for a UPS is to safely shutdown your server and prevent a hard reset.

    windows 10 won't istall

    Skip the network part during initial Windows install and install the driver later from the mounted virtio iso. If you are done the Windows install go to your device manager and install the missing drivers. @boumanp

    Getting microphone on VM?

    If your soundcard is separated in it's own IOMMU group, try passthrough the sound card and the mic should work. Another option might be to use an external USB sound card for passthrough. Only passthrough the mic wont work.

    Access through my DDNS won't work.

    I bet nearly everyone will suggest you to use an VPN into your home network and not directly put your server on the internet.
  11. @harshl What exactly is your issue with the M.2 slots? I have the same board working for almost 1 year with the same 3.30 BIOS for a couble months now and 2 M.2 drives installed. 500GB Samsung 960 EVO as cache and another 960 PRO as a passthrough for my main Win10 VM. Last one first installed as only M.2 with a bare metal Windows 10 Install, later passed through. I never had any issues with these drives.

    Can't start any game on VM

    Drive D is a passed through SSD and drive G is the library directly at the array. No caching is involved. I don't use any SteamLink sort of streaming of my games. If i fire up a game, i play it inside the VM directly.

    Can't start any game on VM

    @Jaster Just simple mount the SMB share in Win10 with a User that is configured in Unraid to connect and than in the Steam settings > Downloads > click Steam Library Folder and add a new one.

    Can't start any game on VM

    @Jaster For me all my Steam Games on a network share are working. Origin had some problems, but never had any issues with steam no matter if I add a steam library entry for the already mounted network share or hard linking the direktory to the local steam folder. I some cases users reported some copy protection mechanisms doesnt like to run from a network drive.

    Printing from a Win10 VM

    Another option would be the "Libvirt Hotplug USB" plugin. You should be able to attach any connected USB device on the VM page to a running VM. Didn't tried it with a printer myself, but all my USB devices like a external CD drive, USB sticks and even a smartphone works.
  16. @Alphahelix Jtok improved the original script. You can find his script with the above mentioned feature on his github page.
  17. The numatune setting only works if you set your BIOS settings for the RAM to channel. On all TR4 boards i saw so far the default setting is auto and the CPU is presented as 1 node to the OS. You might have to check your manual of the board how to setup the RAM slots correctly for 2 dimms. You're the first one i see here in the forum with only 2 dimms on the TR4 platform.
  18. Don't use the numatune option if you want the bandwith of both channels. Or set it to "interleaved" and specify both nodes. <numatune> <memory mode='interleave' nodeset='0-1'/> </numatune> It's up on you what works better for you. Depends on the application and the games. Some benefit of the higher bandwith some of the lower latency.
  19. @mikeyosm You only using 2x16GB of RAM. You can't achive the performance of bare metal dual channel memory speed if you limit a VM to one channel only. Just sayin.

    passthough disc drive to windows 10 vm

    I only have an external USB disc writer. The passthrough is easy as any USB mouse keyboard device. USB hotplug addon does the job same as passing it through the VM settings. also this might be helpful

    [Support] Linuxserver.io - Unifi

    @Greygoose For me the username is case sensitive. admin doesn't work. I have to write it with A. Weird, but a easy fix 😁
  22. @Nooke I have 4x16GB. 2x16 each die and if i have nothing run except of 1 VM with 16GB please explain me why I Only reason could be Unraid claiming more than 16GB from node1. My GPU and the NVME controller i pass through to the VM are connected to node1 which cores and RAM I assigned to the the VM and still it uses RAM from node0 ^^
  23. The 16GB VM i tried to use RAM and cores from node0 only and it shows the same. It always uses a couple megs from the other node. Don't know why. Something is off. 64GB in total and not even running any Docker or other stuff it happens. Can you check one of your VMs with "preferred" instead of "interleaved" how it behaves? @DZMM Also i don't know why you using "interleaved" anyways. This forces Qemu to spread the RAM across all nodes. The point for pinning down the RAM to a specific node/die is to reduce latency and improve the performance of a VM.

    QEMU Patch for Epyc/Threadripper

    It's not related to the 2990wx only. First gen 1950x shows the same behaviour. I guess this is related to all Threadripper models.
  25. numastat qemu Shows current running VMs and their use of RAM. As i said earlier, you can tell the VM with the numatune option which node to use the memory from but it looks like it doesn't. There are always a couble megs used from the other node. First VM is set to use 8GB and 4 cores from node0, second VM is set to use 16GB and 14 cores from node1. <memory mode='strict' nodeset='1'/> Strict should limit the VM only to a specific node. But it doesn't. "prefered" or "interleaved" doesn't change anything for me.
