  1. I bought a refirb drive off of Amazon, which had some pretty good reviews. It was this drive: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HEF8OV0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I've spent the last 4 days stress testing it, and it more or less tested out fine, with the results that looked pretty good. Results attached as "HDD Test 1" & "HDD Test 2" I connected it to my system as my parity drive, and it immediately gives me "UDMA CRC error count" But is proceeding to do a Parity-Sync, but above it it states "Parity is Invalid" UnRaid health check screenshot attached as "Health", and screenshot of Parity Check area attached as "Check". Is Unraid stating "Parity is Invalid" normal until the sync is complete? Do you guys think I should return the drives, and drop the extra money on a brand new drive? HDD Test 1.pdf HDD Test 2.pdf
  2. Cool. I will steer clear then. Do you have a recommendation?
  3. Hey guys! I recently built my first unRAID Server. Unfortunately, the motherboard I selected, only has 6 SATA headers, 4 of those only beinbg SATA II, and 2 of them being SATA III. So obviously, I want to add more HDD's to my system, and also get off of those SATA II Ports, which means I'll need a PCIe SATA Controller Card. I've found this one on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0177GBY0Y/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_1?smid=A1C54F8LN6PEOV&psc=1 It looks nice, but it states its not for high performance drives, It also states a data transfer rate of 6 GBps? Thats the transfer rate of a single SATA III Lane. I'm wondering if that's the transfer speed of the entire card? Anyone know? It appears it isn't the fastest with the "Compliant with 10Gbps x2 PCI Express 2.0" Does anyone have any recommendations? Currently I have 2 of my 8 HDD Bays populated, but I want room to upgrade, hence my looking at a larger one. Anyone have any recommendations for my use-case?
  4. Hey guys! So I'm running plex through an Ubuntu Mint VM. I want to give the OS direct access to the share. So far I have been unsuccessful. I know its possible to network path the Share, and mount it, but it appears to be janky, and I'm new to Linux. My current settings are in screenshots attached.
  5. Hey guys! I know this is an old post, but my question has to do with this. I installed my array with an older 5200RPM 1TB, and I want to eventually upgrade that older 1TB with a 7200RPM 6TB. Is there any way I can install the 6TB alongside the 1TB, and have the data transferred gracefully from the old drive onto the new drive so a rebuild isn't necessary? I assumed that if I leave the old drive installed, unassigned it, and assign the new drive, it would transfer the data from the old drive to the new drive. I want to make sure that would happen.
  6. Aha! It works now. Thanks! And thanks everyone, I'm very much new to UnRaid. But so far I love it! Can't wait until my 10TB Parity Drive comes in.
  7. I doubt that'll work, because I nuked my nuked my shares, in an attempt to just get VM's working, and go from there. I'm still getting "Libvirt Service failed to start." even after making all custom directories in my VM Directory custom share. For some reason it doesn't seem to be generating the Libvirt file. And/or when it is, its corrupted? I'm currently generating my diagnostics file. I'll reply/edit this post when its generated, and I've uploaded it to Google Drive.
  8. I've deleted it, and tried to re-create it a dozen times. I can easily rebuild my VM's. How I've done it, is Settings -> VM Manager -> Libvirt storage location -> Delete Image File But doing that has made no difference.
  9. Continuing to troubleshoot. I reinstalled the OS. Didn't help. I think it might just be best to rebuild the Shares? According to that, something is horribly wrong.
  10. I'm running into this issue now. Obviously getting a Mount Error. Any Ideas?
