  1. Is anyone else having trouble with deluge? Looks like it was updated 2-days ago and mine is putting a strangle-hold on my resources. CPUs are all pinned and the system is bogged down. If I kill that docker it goes back to working normally.
  2. I have a really weird issue -- Home Assistant is polling Unifi to see what devices are connected. If my docker daemon restarts or my server restarts, the connection from HA to Unifi-Controller times out. If I manually restart my HA service it connects just fine. I've tried increasing the delay of the HA server to 10m after the Unifi-Controller starts but it still times out when trying to connect. Anyone have any ideas what else I can try? (Posting here because there isn't a support thread for the HA container -- which is likely the problem.)
  3. Upgraded from 6.6.7 without any major issues and only one minor one. The upgrade took all my services offline but then never rebooted. I was able to ssh in and manually reboot and everything came back up fine (so far.)
  4. That's pretty impressive! I'm pulling ~200watts at idle. But that's with 14 HDDs on an HP G8 server w/ dual x5660s and 96gb of RAM. I don't have a smart plug so I can't tell daily usage, but my PDU never seems to spike above ~240w.
  5. Was able to connect to iLo3. It was a bit of a headache as the firmware as at 1.15 which only supported TLS1.0 (which has been dropped from every current web browser.) I finally was able to install Firefox 23 and then enable TLS1.0 and SSL3 in order to connect and update to 1.20 and then 1.90 firmwares. Cool! Next question -- how can I update the system BIOS either remotely or from UnRaid. HPE only makes available RPM packages and Windows packages. Doesn't look like UnRaid can install RPMs. I tried to flash via a Windows VM and it couldn't detect the system. My server is headless so I don't believe I can do it via USB..... thoughts?
  6. Got it -- I'll try this over the weekend. I can watch the DHCP server on my pfsense for a new ethernet assignment (assuming that my server iLo uses DHCP, anyway.)
  7. I've got an HP hba card and an expander. Bios info: <description>BIOS</description> <vendor>HP</vendor> <physid>0</physid> <version>P67</version> <date>08/16/2015</date> I actually have no idea how to login to iLo. Do I need to connect another Ethernet cable?
  8. I've got a HP DL380G7 -- it's up and running and has been relatively trouble free. But last night I rebooted and the fans now won't quiet down. Rebooted again and same issue. I know this is a tricky and probably bios related problem but all my drives are showing in SMART and 25-30C. System temps are all low. System is basically at idle. Thoughts on things I could try to quiet it down? It's in my basement so it doesn't need to be silent.... but it's gone from a negligible amount of noise to an annoying amount.
  9. Everywhere can accomodate a server rack. Something like this would hang it vertically, you could bolt it right to the side of your desk. https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-RK119WALLV-19-Inch-Vertical-Equipment/dp/B001YI0V7O?th=1
  10. I don't think it's worth it to purchase brand new quasi server-grade hardware when you can get actual server hardware for much cheaper. You'll need to figure out a racking solution and deal with server noise, but there are plenty of cool vertical mounting options and methods to reduce fan noise. The support, quality and reliability of server hardware is going to be so much better than the mainboard you picked out. I'd spend some time on labgopher.com and see what you can come up with.
  11. I just realized one problem -- I'd prefer to spin down some of these cache drives and with windows VMs running it appears they basically never spin down. Will enabling any Windows Power Management features help that?
  12. I've recently mothballed my desktop (32gb of RAM, i7 3770k) after my "experiment" with unraid. I bought older enterprise grade hardware from eBay and I'll never go back to a "real" computer. As crazy as it sounds, I was previously hosting Plex/Sonarr/Radarr/SabNZBd/Hydra/Deluge and some other misc apps on my media server which was an Odroid C2 (think beefy pi.) It worked but I had to reboot it frequently. For $250 I bought an HP 380G7 w/ 96gb of RAM and dual Xeon X5660 CPUs. It came with 8x150gb SAS drives. I added 3x4tb Seagates ($90x3). This gives me more horsepower (for far less money) than my desktop. Additionally, I untangled an entire room worth of network cables, external USB drives, HDMI relays, etc and moved it all into a 12u server cabinet ($70) (I fabricated a vertical mount on the back for the HP server ($30.) I added a cheap PFSense box ($50 off eBay) a Linksys managed switch ($30) and a UNIFI access point ($70.) Everything is now hidden in my basement. I'm at $680 and would say I have a pretty robust setup. I've got an AMD GPU from a few years ago that I'm going to see if it will fit -- but outside of gaming and possible video editing, my rig should be able to run circles around my previous desktop setup.
  13. My server came with 8x147gb SAS 15k drives. I originally only provisioned half of them as the cache but then realized that having 4 of them in my JBOD array wasn't gaining me much in storage. Is there any downside to having this many cache drives?
  14. Whoa! Game changer!! It was not obvious at all that the Help was a toggle. This should be changed to a slider!
  15. In my Settings | Docker I have this: Docker vDisk location: /mnt/user/system/docker/docker.img Default appdata storage location: /mnt/user/appdata/ I've now changed both system and appdata shares to be Cache: Only. Will Unraid move the existing data from the array to the cache and keep it there or do I need to do something manually? Interestingly enough, the one docker image that is already in cache is the one that is showing up: How should I go about recreating my docker.img? I understand once that is done I can recreate my apps with the previous apps feature.
