  1. I'm going from unraid to DSM... I need something that works with out me having to tinker constantly. TimeMachine never worked reliably, VM's worked good for 2 weeks then would stop booting out of nowhere. I hope DSM is a more professional solution.. I no longer need VM's so im going to DSM cause a small celeron cpu is not capable of decent VMs anyway.
  2. Problems again out of no where my Win10 VM and OSX mojave VM dont boot anymore. i tried to recreate the XMl file thinking it was a bad nvram, but no luck im stuck at the tianno screen again. Im about to give up on unraid, this doesnt seem reliable enough, to have 3K invested in hardware and have it work here and there is not acceptable. I'm going to go back to a chepo build just for plex and nas and thats it. So frustrated with this. Everytime i think i got it to be stable i reboot, shut down the vms couple times in a day im happy. Then the next day i go to use it and crap again... I would expect this type of results from open source, but for this being a paid solution, its very disappointing.
  3. I will do this if the issue comes up again. But i was able to get it to work by re-creating a new VM, maybe the NVRAM file somehow got all jumbled up with the ASUS 10gbe i was trying to use before. But macOS recognized the device this time no problem and of course i got pased the Tiano Core screen and into Clover etc. So i will mark this as solved, the fix was to rebuild the VM image. I didnt have to do a fresh install i used the nvme drive with the OS i was passing through, just recreated the XML file from scratch, thus generating a new NVRAM file. Im getting decent speeds 750MB/s write to a cache only SSD. Im surprise cause i have it as RAID 1 was expecting around 450MB/s. ANd read im only getting 417MB/s but that is also expected since im reading from cache with 2 Sata3 SSDs in RAID 1. So far im happy with these results. I did turn jumbo frames on in macOS, i might do that in unraid network preferences and see if that helps.
  4. The tonnymac site says this card should work out of the box with out any kext or other changes in clover. My thing is that i dont even see the clover boot screen, it gets stuck at the tonao logo. and throughs those errors i mentioned above. I used to have a ASUS 10gbe card that it boot with it, but the macOS wouldnt recognize the card. After a while it stopped booting with that card so i had to remove that card from the xml to get macOS to boot. I will try to recreate a new XML instance maybe the nvram is corrupted.
  5. Thanks, ill check tonnymac, the reason i bought this sonnet solo 10gbe is because they say out of the box osx support.
  6. Hello Everyone, Im trying to pass-through a Sonnet 10GBE nic to the 2nd vm (OSX) i have on the server. The device is RESETABLE, and i have it Stubed-OUT in the unraid flash config file. My windows 10 vm boots up just fine with it and i got the driver installed and it works. however i can't get it to work from OSX. It keeps saying i need to include a rom file. But its not a GPU why would it want a rom file. Any thoughts?

  8. I tried VEGA also, couldnt get it to pass through a second time. Got it finally to work 1 time than it would remain in a crashed state after 1st use, had to restart the server to boot again. The Sapphire RX580 Pulse 8GB is an amazing card. Get one of those for 1/2 the price of VEGA, works amazing with unraid, osx mojave and windows 10. THe fans even shut down when not needed unlike the vega. Geebench opencl gave me a 130,000 score with RX580 and 160-170,000 with VEGA, so for double the price and nightmares and constant fan it wasnt yielding double the score anyway... For windows i installed 18.9.3 driver and i can play various steam and halo forge no problems.
  9. I would like to try your method here as i'm building my osx VM as my primary and about to sell my mac mini 2018 with 10gbe. I was able to get 900ish speeds with mac mini and unraid via a ASUS 10gbe card in unraid, but if that ethernet port was on its own different IP (192.168.10.123) and my mac on that same subnet eg (192.168.10.124) where my normal network would be on 192.168.1.xxx The problem is i wound not get internet access on the mac mini. So when i bridged the two ethernet ports in unraid, and just put everything back on my LAN subnet ip the mac was able to access the internet and the unraid at decent speeds 500ish. With your method will i be able to get on the internet from the VM?
  10. I have slow transfer also I think it has something to do with the br0 network we emulate and passthrough to the VM... but it’s beyond me at the movement.... Even though I have a second 10gbe nick I can’t get it to work faster than 100MB/s where I should see something like 400MB/s going from my name to my SSD sata3 cache oboe share....
  11. Hello, im trying to passthrough my entire unassigned device (Samsung 1TB SSD) but the guest os (mojave) sees the disk as spinning disk and doesnt show that trim is supported. SMART = YES, but no TRIM. Am i supposed to passthrough the device in a different manner than what i have here? im setting boot order=2 becuase im also passing a pci-e nvme drive as the boot drive to the quest. <disk type='block' device='disk'> <driver name='qemu' type='raw' cache='writeback'/> <source dev='/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Samsung_SSD_860_EVO_1TB_S3Z8NB0M101503K'/> <target dev='hdc' bus='sata'/> <boot order='2'/> <address type='drive' controller='0' bus='0' target='0' unit='2'/> </disk>
  12. Thanks John_M i was able to re-upgrade to 6.7RC2 and found a setting to turn on timemachine in the SMB settings, then i was able to setup the disk share as TimeMachine under SMB. My mac can now perform TimeMachine Backups. I do have the dB path for all my shares on the cache, drive in a cache only share. The one i forgot to do one for is my disk2 share. ill try that tonight see if it helps. I might stick to SMB if it continues to work tho.
  13. I tried 6.7RC2 and it killed my server in regards to AFP. I was no longer able to connect using AFP, to my shares. And of course timemachine couldnt find the disk. One thing i didnt try was to change the disk in time machine using an SMB mapped drive. I will try that tonight and post feed back. I since then downgraded back to 6.6.5 to see if i can get it working again, and it completely killed my AFP TimeMachine Setup. AFP somewhat works with connecting to shares and transfering data, but i need it most importantly for timeMachine. I will try tonight to re-upgrade to 6.6.7RC2 and see if i can get my TimeMachine to work over SMB. Stay Tuned...
  14. Hello, i recently upgraded to 6.6.7RC2 and AFP connection wouldnt work. I then downgraded to 6.6.6 and my AFP drives mount in macOS and i can transfer files through finder, but TimeMachine no longer works. I even tried going back to 6.6.5 and my TimeMachines still doesn't work. I tried restarting server, restarting client mac, and even stopping AFP and SMB in unraid settings, and re-starting them. Still the error persist. What else can i try? I checked to make sure the shares are ok, and that they have AFP enabled. The TimeMachine connects to a disk share, that is setup as AFP with secure and my user account is listed as read/write. Here is the errors im getting.
  15. My problem was fixed when i changed the Windows FAST STARTUP option to OFF.
