Rookie (2/14)



  1. currently have a server running on a xeon 1620 v2 in a lenovo s30 and seems to work pretty well except for the lack of cores. so trying to decide what cpu to upgrade to seeing as they are pretty cheap on ebay. i run a few dockers and a few vm's. may make a vm for guests to play games on in the future if possible. the question of the ages is core count or speed? Xeon E5-2690 v2 10 core 3 GHz boost 3.6 GHz, Xeon E5-2697 v2 12 core 2.7 GHz boost 3.5 GHz, or Xeon E5-2667 v2 8 core 3.3 GHz boost 4 GHz? not sure the difference in speed would really be noticeable in a vm or not especially if i can assign a vm more cores. any suggestions? this is a link to compatible hardware if anyone has any other suggestions https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/withdrawnbook/S30.pdf just not sure if the speed will really even be noticable especially if i can assign vm's a full 4 cores instead of 2-3 cores
  2. is their some sort of control program or os? or is it basically 10 individual computers (blades) inside 1 chassis?
  3. might be a dumb question but i saw someone posted some dell 1855 and 1955's for sale for pretty cheap. from what i can tell they hold 10 blades. i was wondering, how would something like blade servers work with unraid or will they work at all? would i have to buy a license for each blade? https://www.dell.com/downloads/global/products/pedge/en/pe1955_spec_sheet.pdf
  4. been trying all day but cant seem to get this to work. not sure what im doing wrong
  5. right now its just a couple of windows 10 vm's with a few programs on them. just didnt want to use the date. but ill copy the vdisk. what are the xml definitions?
  6. i searched a bit and found some old upgrade threads but didnt find too much info. may suck with the search tool. anyways i currently have a system with a xeon 1620 v2 thats quite old. i am considering upgrading to a 2700x which would be a completely different board, ram, cpu, and architecture. but i want to make sure my vm's stay intact due to having important gameservers running on them. is it as simple as just switching the hardware and booting from the usb and it will be back to exactly the same? but with more cores and faster speed ofcourse.
  7. ive saw a few threads about this but none seem to go anywhere beyond using a full computer. my question has anyone used a thin or zero client to access a vm on their unraid server? i have my server in the basement and would like a computer in the guest bedroom and one at my work bench. so i have a monitor, keyboard, and mouse in their. i would like to hook it up to a zero client that will just access a vm on my network. has anyone tried anything like this?
  8. not sure where to put this so i decided to try here. im new to linux so decided to start with ubuntu. got a vm setup and running but not sure how to link it to a unraid share. the vm is taking pictures using a script and i would like them to be saved to the share so i can access them on my pc to edit them. i currently can manually transfer the pictures but would like for it to just save directly to the share to save time. any ideas?
  9. Strangely enough it is at the same time. Not sure if its connected but it is right before daily mover schedule.
  10. Well this sucks because the code only pops up at random. Not immediately. Was running all day yesterday and the code didn't come back till 4am
  11. So no clue what the error codes mean?
  12. I dont see any kind of log in the bios page at all. What am I looking for?
  13. Ok. My plan is to upgrade to a ryzen with more cores and ddr4 sometime this year. That should be faster
  14. So not worth the few hundred more for a minor increase in speed?
  15. Also side note. Did just notice that the mobo and cpu are quad channel but I only have 2 sticks in. Would their be any real world performance increase upgrading to quad channel ecc?
