  1. [Solved] Realtek apparently doesn't play well with unRAID, so I purchased another usb/etherrnet dongle off of amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MK6DJ6M/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. this ax88179.178a nic chip works great, and setup was plug and chug.
  2. I have been reading about these posts how folks are moving their pfsense boxes over to an unraid VM, and I have been been shooting to do the same with my Sophos UTM. well, the vm runs faster (clearly) and I have already seen some better performance from running it for a small amount of time. My main issue is I cannot get the USB ethernet dongle that is on my current Sophos box to be passed in successfully. the VM sees the dongle but errors out durrng the modprobe with r815x: probe of 1:1-2.0 failed with error -32 I have a USB dongle that has no issue being passed through but it is only 10/100, and I have noticed degraded performance using it, so I dont want to keep using it. I have read the following community/forum posts for research: ***GUIDE*** Passthrough Entire PCI USB Controller ***GUIDE*** Passing Through Network Controllers to unRAID 6 Virtual Machines USB Ethernet Passthrough - Is it possible? How to pass through a physical Network Controller in unRAID my failed troubleshooting includes: adding the USB device directly into the 70-persistent-net rules file: didn't work probing the r815x and attempting to force it to take: didn't work i tried adding <driver name == r815x/> into the VMs XML configuration: didn't work I've deleted the 70-persistnent-net-rules and crossed-my fingers and hoped it would configure it.: didst work for my 10/100 dongle, this works just fine. UnRaid lists it as an ICS Advent DM9601 (0fe6:9700) letting the system configure the 70-persistent-net rules file then switching the usb information with the 0bda:8153 and MAC from the r815x chipset. this breaks it and I have to reload from snapshot. I thought the issue was using ehci instead of xchi cause it was a USB 3.0 dongle. didn't work. so I put the dongle on the other USB busses and tried both ehci and xhci configurations, that didn't work. I even purchased 3 different dongles and ALL of them, once I plugged it in, came up as 0bda:8153 (ppl should be forced to list their chipsets smh) didnt work My unraid config: unRAID version: 6.41 Model: Custom M/B: Dell Inc. - 0GXM1W CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz HVM: Enabled IOMMU: Enabled Cache: 256 kB, 1024 kB, 8192 kB Memory: 32 GB (max. installable capacity 32 GB) Network: bond0: fault-tolerance (active-backup), mtu 1500 eth0: 1000 Mb/s, full duplex, mtu 1500 Kernel: Linux 4.14.16-unRAID x86_64 OpenSSL: 1.0.2n Not sure my VM config would be helpful considering that it does work, just not with this ONE instance of an r815x passthrough. this is the SAME dongle that is being used right now on the hard box. I have tried upgrading to 6.8 but doing so killed my SMB shares. I did some initial reading/research on it and I am not using SMBv1/cifs for my windows 10. I downgraded cause 6.41 has no issues with Windows 10 and SMBv1 turned off. So, Im trying to pick my battles here. please help. I've been pounding my head on this one for awhile.
  3. Can the moderators take these posts and move/create the thread? If they cannot, I will start the new thread. Thanks
  4. I have this exact same scenario happen. the buggy Marvel chipset along with the shutdown and data loss. I did switch the pci-e port and re-seat, but unfortunately, I did lose data.the array and parity rebuilt, when i rebooted, there was data loss. I remember my ssd cache disk had data on it, but now, after the rebuild, it doesnt recognize the cache drive anymore. the only option it (UnRaid) gives me is to format. I am wondering if there is anything else for me, or am I in an irrecoverable state. thanks
