  1. Alright, I'll just go for it as the parity drive. Thanks
  2. I've found an external drive that I want to put into my unraid server. It's larger than my parity drive, it's 8tb vs my current 6tb parity. It has 10,000 hours on time and 90tb written and i've had it for about 4 years. It's also 5400rpm so I don't think i could trust it as my parity drive? So... is it possible to shrink and let unraid only see 6tb out of the 8tb of the drive so it'll fit in my array under my 6tb parity drive? Or could I trust this drive in my server?
  3. I'm currently running an old S5500BC motherboard with dual xeon x5675 processors. The server has a warning light on constantly and Unraid fix common problems reports back often with machine errors. I think it's time for a new, more efficient server. My server is mainly used for plex and runs a couple of websites The two processors have a combined passmark of around 12,000 but the single core performance is pretty bad. Plex struggles sometimes of H264 transcoding and it's maxing out a single core. Would I see better performance on something like a Ryzen 5 2600? And would it be fine to run a desktop cpu and without ECC ram as a server? For the upgrade i'd only need a motherboard, cpu, ram and case. Any recommendations would be appreciated!
  4. Hey, I'm having an issue on wordpress and it's erroring regarding Imagick; ImagickException thrown – NoDecodeDelegateForThisImageFormat `JPEG’. I'v checked on phpinfo and it shows "ImageMagick number of supported formats:0" Any idea how i could fix this? Or is this part of the docker build that needs fixing?
  5. I'll move everything off the cache drive to get the green circle to show that the share is protected, as soon as I copy over any more other files to the share they head straight onto the cache drive, quite annoying and no idea why.
  6. Nope, it's always been the same and never touched it - never use cache and only use my array. I only noticed because the yellow triangle popped up recently in shares with "some or all files unprotected"
  7. I'm moving the files onto it via windows using \\tower\Plex so directly hitting the share, plex is just then reading these and updating the library
  8. Hi, I'm finding that one of my shares is putting files onto my cache drive, even though in the share settings the Use cache disk is set to 'No' Is there something I'm doing wrong?
  9. I'm getting slow speeds on my windows vm (see the image attached). I have the domain folder with the vms on my SSD along with my docker containers. Since(I think) adding my hard drive parity drive it seems to of slowed down performance on my SSD, i'm guessing this is because it has to write the parity drive at the same time so it slows down to hard drive performance? - is my thinking. Would it be more beneficial to move the vms and dockers onto my hard drive and set up the 250gb ssd as cache for the domain folder for vms, and docker? My config looks like this; Parity - ST4000DM004-2CV104_ZFN19PMG - 4 TB (sdc) Disk 1 - Samsung_SSD_840_EVO_250GB_S1DBNEAD827364F - 250 GB (sdb) Disk 3 - ST4000DM004-2CV104_ZFN0VKWT - 4 TB (sdd)
  10. It's told me I have machine check events errors. I've installed mcelog and ran the diagnostics under tools and attached them. Help would be appreciated. tower-diagnostics-20181018-1356.zip
  11. Hi, I'm trying to connect my wordpress site, in its own docker to a mariadb docker. In the wordpress setup for the database host i've entered 192.168.0.83:3306 (trying both with and without the port) but I get an error establishing database connection. (User permissions are set correctly for the database) See the attached image for port & ip details. Is there anything obvious that i'm missing? Thanks.

  13. Yeah - i've tried a couple of times. I've mounted it with it off, then turning share on once mounted and then trying to mount it with it turned on.
  14. I've attached it. It's the drive that's around 8TB through usb that is NTFS partitioned that i'm trying to share the complete drive through unassigned devices. tower-diagnostics-20180922-1423.zip
