  1. I have created a new folder on my cache drive and move the IMG file there and it's working now....No idea what was off with /domains
  2. Just to add - I tried to create a brand new VM and got the same error when trying to save.
  3. Hi All of a sudden none of my VMs will start. All my img files for different VMs are located at /mnt/cache/domains/OS Folder When trying to start any of them I get this message: I am not sure what the problem is,everything was running fine until now. I can access/mnt/cache/domains through SMB and unraid terminal just fine. Any ideas? Thanks
  4. Yeah, I don't need ALL the data. I just need to figure out what's really important and what's just movies/TV shows that are easy to replace. All seasons of Knight Rider 1080p might not make the cut. Then I'll see about perhaps an online backup for some of it. I hear Backblaze is the cheapest but at $5 a month per TB it can still add up quickly And yes, it was a FULL miraculous recovery
  5. Yeah, I need to figure out a better backup solution. Online was not an option previously but with Comcast suspending data caps for next 60 days perhaps I can try that They did not specify what was wrong, they just said that something was damaged internally. They said they could probably still recover the data but it would have been $1100 instead of $60......
  6. Hi, Just wanted to post that I shipped my five drives to outsourcedatarecovery.com I had 4 failed data drives and 1 parity. They were able to fix 3 data drives and parity by replacing PCB. It cost $60 per drive plus $15 shipping. I was able to rebuild the missing drive by using parity once I installed them back in Unraid. I am now in the process of replacing all repaired drives one by one, since I don't feel comfortable keeping them. Two of them were under WD warranty and I was surprised that they shipped a brand new replacement (although with just few months' warranty). I was expecting a refurb. All in all, I went from total loss of 17TB to a full, almost miraculous recovery with no data lost. Pheeew!
  7. I have purchased this card Inateck 2-Port Pci-E USB 3.0 Express Card and was able to pass it to VMs by using append vfio-pci.ids=1b73:1100 I can now assign the entire controller to my VMs and my XBOX controller was able to sync properly.
  8. Hello I have purchased XBOX Wireless USB adapter and was able to test it and sync it to a controller on my PC. However when I add plug it in to my Unraid server and pass it to Windows 10 VM it shows up in the Device Manager, but it won't sync to a controller, the controller just keeps flashing when I hit the sync button. Doing some reading it looks like it might help if I pass the entire USB controller instead of just the single device. I have Supermicro X10SRL-F motherboard with 4 USB ports on the back of the motherboard, and then I have 2 ports in the case that I connected to USB headers on the MB. I plugged different devices to every single port so I can identify them. I ran this command from Spaceinvader video: for usb_ctrl in $(find /sys/bus/usb/devices/usb* -maxdepth 0 -type l); do pci_path="$(dirname "$(realpath "${usb_ctrl}")")"; echo "Bus $(cat "${usb_ctrl}/busnum") --> $(basename $pci_path) (IOMMU group $(basename $(realpath $pci_path/iommu_group)))"; lsusb -s "$(cat "${usb_ctrl}/busnum"):"; echo; done These are the results: Bus 1 --> 0000:00:1a.0 (IOMMU group 23) Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:800a Intel Corp.

Does this mean I have to buy USB PCI-E card and hopefully pass that to the VM? Any cheap recommended PCI-E x1 cards that work with Supermicro MB? Thanks
  9. Thanks everyone I was able to get it to work by adding VFIO-pci.id to my syslinux so I can pass USB controller and Serial Bus controller along with video card and sound.
  10. Hi. I just installed ASUS GTX 1650 Super in my Unraid server. When I assign it to a Windows 10 VM, I get the following error: Google this error it looks like there's a bunch of stuff to try, so I will do some more research although if someone has some advice they can post here I would appreciate that as well My other concern is that the video card doesn't show the name in the list, like my other one (GT 720). Instead of saying "Geforce GTX 1650" or something like that, it just says "NVIDIA Device (04:00.0)", should I be concerned about that? Here are my IOMMU groups: https://pastebin.com/6VxB82Qn Thanks!
  11. Hi Can someone help me understand the real wattage and electricity cost of a video card? I want to get a new GPU for my Unraid and I am deciding between GTX 1650 (draws power only from PCI-E slot) and GTX 1650 Super (requires 6-pin power connector) The server is on 24/7 but the video card will be not be used for gaming very often, so vast majority of the time it will just sit idle. One card TDP is rated 75W and the other is 100W. What I am trying to understand is if I pay 10.8c per kWh, realistically how much a year in electricity does 1650 cost vs 1650 Super? Currently my UPS shows about 130W idle load for my entire Unraid PC. Thanks
  12. Hello, I currently have a Geforce 720 TI in my Unraid and it's mainly used to output HDMI to my receiver when using OpenELEC VM. I would like to buy a better video card so I can possibly play some 1080p video games on a Windows 10 VM. I was looking at something like Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1650 4GB, since it's about my budget ($150), has decent performance in 1080p and is fairly low power, there's no 6pin power connector need. However I also have a Mac OS Catalina VM on my Unraid and I remember reading somewhere that it might not support 16xx Geforce video cards? Is that correct? Is there a $150 low-power video card with similar performance that would support Catalina? Thanks!
  13. Thanks! What do you mean by "use command line to keep them sparse". Would that be a different process than using midnight commander ?
  14. Hi My array is currently off while I am waiting on repair for few of my failed hard drives and pre-clearing one replacement drive. I would like to use this time to upgrade my EVO 250GB SSD cache drive to a new Crucial 500GB SSD cache drive. I mounted the new drive under Unassigned Devices and turned Destructive mode on, but I don't see any option to format. I would like to format the new drive from NTFS to XFS. How can I do it? Also, I have removed my current cache drive (Samsung EVO 250GB) from "Cache", and it shows up in the "Unassigned Devices" list. I want to make triple sure that if I mount it as unassigned device I will not lose any existing data on it. It's holding all my VMs and Docker information so I am little scared mounting it using UD as I have never done that before. Once I have both the old and the new cache drive mounted, what's the best way to copy everything from EVO to the new SSD? I saw this command on another post: "dd if=/dev/sdX of=/dev/sdY bs=32M status=progress" ? Is there something else that would work better? Thank you!
