  1. I removed the wireguard because I couldn't get it working correctly. Same issues. I ended up wiping the USB drive and it all works now. Even reinstalled wireguard and it works properly now. Thanks
  2. And I have tried using automatic DNS servers as well as and
  3. All of a sudden, I am having major issues with networking on my Unraid server. I can access the server from my network, but it doesn't seem to be able to access the internet at all. If I try to ping an internet server, it says 'host unreachable'. One thing I noticed is that I am using a 192.168.1.x network, but when I try to ping from the server, it looks like it is trying to use a 10.253.0.x address.
  4. I currently have 2 Seagate 6TB drives (the shingled ones) as my parity drives. I recently picked up a couple 6tb 7200rpm SAS drives cheap. I have them in the array right now, but they are still pretty much empty for the moment. Would there be any advantage to switching my parity to these drives instead of the seagate ones?
  5. You could use a reverse breakout cable and the motherboard sata ports, or you could buy an hba. They are pretty cheap. From what I have read, the 920w power supplies are much, much quieter than the 1200w ones,
  6. I know what you mean. I'm running dual Xeon E5 2670s (16 cores total/ 32 with hyperthreading) and while it can keep up witha 4k HEVC transcode, the seek times on FF/REW are too long to be acceptable for the family.
  7. That works great until you need to transcode due to subtitles or another reason. At that point, it transcode the highest quality file, which makes sense, however even my dual Xeon server can't keep up with a 4k transcode.
  8. I thought about that, but decided due to the use of unraid and Dockers v. VMs and potentially using hardware gpu transcoding, I should ask here.
  9. I think this is the route I am going to go with.
  10. Currently running Plex as a docker. Just got a 4k tv with a Nvidia shield. 4k plays fine on it, but if i use my other tv (non 4k) with a roku, the server bogs down. I tried using multiple versions of the file, but my wife uses subtitles a lot and when Plex is forced to transcode, it appears to transcode the 4k file (which it can't really handle), not the 1080p one (which it can). So, my questions: 1. Is there any way to get Plex to transcode the 1080p file by default? This would also help with the colors when the4k version is hdr. 2. If not, I have an rx480 that I could throw in my server. Would this work for hardware transcoding? (My cpus do not support igpu). If I do this, I would have to transition to using a VM, I guess. What type of VM? Windows or Linux?
  11. What are the different cards I see there (3 in total)?
  12. I currently have a 12 Bay hotswap case (rosewill). I am thinking of adding another one of the same, or possibly a Norco. What do I need to run the drives in the second case (SATA drives)? I know I will need another controller card, but what cables do I run to the new case from the old one? If I use another rosewill case, the drives have individual SATA connectors so I will probably need breakout cables, but I'm assuming I don't need to run 12 SATA cables from one case to the other.
  13. Fixed it. Used the preclear plugin to zero out the drive. I was then able to format and mount it successfully.
  14. I have a 5TB drive I pulled from a used Windows system. The drive was formatted NTFS with a single partition. When I try to bring it up in UD, it says "zfs_member" and won't let me mount it. I have tried using UD to format it in both XFS and NTFS after deleting the partition. It ends up with a single 0b partition and won't let me mount it. It still says zfs_member. I even tried pulling it out and reformatting it in a Windows machine (which worked fine on the Windows box), but when I put it back in my unRaid server, I end up with the same unmountable zfs_member drive.
