  1. Hi Ed- Thanks for offering your input. I checked the appdata folder and this is what I've found: (the parent folder of this screenshot is /mnt/user/appdata) Here is a screenshot of /mnt/user/system/macinabox : It looks like at some point I changed my Docker default appdata location to /mnt/system ? Not sure why I would have done this - but when I started learning Unraid a few years ago I definitely had some beginner mistakes and maybe this is a leftover error that I've just noticed now. Anyway - I think I've found my error
  2. I'd just like to note that my experience was remotely connecting to a Windows10 VM via RDP from a macOS / Windows / Linux client. When you are connecting TO Win10 VM via RDP, multi monitor is very easy when using the MS RDP client on macOS or Windows. Remmina on Linux does not seem to handle multi monitor very well. XFreeRDP (or something similar to that) is a CLI program that works ok with multi monitor, however it did not support scaling very well which was a show stopper for me since I have HiDPI displays. I have not found a good solution to remotely connecting to a Linux
  3. Question regarding the macinabox_vmready_notify script: IF the BigSur download is completed before I run this script: Does the script show a notification that "macOS is now ready to install" ? OR will no notification appear since the downloading was not in progress when I began the userscript? The reason I ask is because it took me several minutes to get the user script running after I started the docker. I'm on a 1Gbps WAN connection so its theoretically possible that it completed the download before I began the script. I've had the script running in the background
  4. @ghost82 Thanks for the recommendation. I have found a solution that seems to be working, but is not yet my ultimate goal. Although that solution was not highly relevant towards the Windows VM, the video you linked had some good info in the comments section. Thank you. I have documented the "part 1" of my solution below for anyone interested. My Win10 VM on the Unraid Server is a standard Win10 VM within Unraid. QXL video drivers and the rest of the standard drivers one installs when installing Win10 in a VM on Unraid. I am not using any GPU passthrough.
  5. Unraid can be configured to spin down all drives in your array (this includes parity) when not in use. I have it setup this way, I believe they spin down after 15 minutes of no use. My goal is to keep the server quieter and cooler. The location of my Unraid & FreeNAS servers struggles with airflow and cooling so I try to keep heat to a minimum. Does this mean longer drive life? I do not know, I believe it would depend on use-case. I can make some guesses: The spin down configuration is key. If the drives spin down and shortly later spin up, I would imagine
  6. Hello fellow Unraid-ers, I have a bit of a complicated question today. Goal I would like to spread my Windows VM (on Unraid) across my 3 displays on my Ubuntu Desktop PC. Does anyone know how to edit the VM to have 2 (or 3) virtual monitors? That would allow me to use multi-monitor RDP, or open 3 VNC connections to the VM. Background Context I use a Windows VM on my Unraid server to WFH. My desktop PC is bare metal Ubuntu. I simply load the VM via RDP and work within the Windows VM. Works wonderfully...except I can only use 1 monitor for the Windows VM.
  7. Thank you @lotetreemedia for this well written instruction guide. Just used it with my server to enable hw transcode. I am using an Intel i5-8400 and this has vastly improved my Plex performance. Plex can now transcode several streams without any transcoding issues or performance impacts on other containers or VMs. Thanks!
  8. Hello- I'm afraid I'm having some trouble here. I've installed gPodder from community applications and I'm unable to open the webUI. Firefox simply does not connect to the webUI. At first I manually setup the hash for my chosen password & username, as well as changed the downloads directory, and GUI size. I was having the same problem with that setup, so I erased the docker, deleted the docker image and started fresh with the default settings. The default settings install properly without error, and then the webUI cannot be accessed. Anyone run into sim
  9. Just wanted to thank techsperion for this write up. It worked perfectly for me and was easy to follow. For reference my Unraid Server is as follows: Unraid OS 6.8.3 Intel i5-8400 with onboard quicksync Plex Docker from
  10. I'm having issues with getting the handshake to successfully occur. I have WG setup on my Unraid server using the public IP. (I will use DDNS later, but I'm trying to reduce variables to solve this problem.) I am running an EdgeRouter and setup a port forward to my unraid server. I've ensured bridging is enabled on eth0. I have configured a peer as "Remote Access to LAN" and tested this config using the QR code method on my iPhone. I can't get my iPhone to handshake with Unraid. I have Local server uses NAT set to Yes for now. Will setup the static route later
  11. I'm having the same issue. I setup WG VPN on my Unraid server. My router has UPnP turned off, so I setup the port forward to my unraid server. Went through all the steps on this guide created by user ljm42. I left "Local server uses NAT" set to "yes." Not sure too much of what this means, this might be relating to my problem. Setup a peer as peer type "Remote access to LAN" Used the QR Code method to setup this config on my iPhone. Tried to connect to my Unraid VPN using my iPhone (while on cellular) iPhone network works fine (its usin
  12. I also have interest in an Open Eats unraid template, but I definitely do not have the expertise to create one myself. How has your experience with Open Eats been? I’m looking for a recipe manager of some type, but don’t have any experience with any of them yet.
  13. This is a great write-up and should work well for many people with less than 5TB of data. I previously used CloudBerry but quickly discovered that the backup software has a maximum of 5TB of data that it can manage unless you purchase the enterprise edition for $300. So this is an important consideration as many unraid users probably have far more than 5TB of data they would like to backup.
  14. I’m planning a build of an unRAID server that is solely for storage. No need for encoding/transcoding of plex files, no need for VM support, etc. storage only. There will likely never be more 1 person accessing the storage system. Right now I’m thinking about: CPU - core i3-2100 (sandy bridge) about $35 on eBay Mobo - Q67,H67 or Z68 chipset board? All allow for up to 6 SATA port... Z68 has smart response technology- is this useful at all with unRAID? Not really sure which chipset is likely cheapest / best but I found an Asus P8H67 for $70 on eBay. RAM - sandy bridg
