  1. +1 Discourse. Wasn't sure if I liked it at first, but their search engine is a beast compared to the current incarnation of Invision, but that's simply MHO. Also, I like that Discourse gives you a summary button that condenses the entire thread for you and has a link box with all of the links shared in a thread. Annnd when creating a new thread, Discourse displays relevant threads in an effort to reduce redundant posts. #wishfulthinking #undia
  2. As long as the data transfers in both directions to the exFAT drive and the errors are benign — I can live with that.
  3. I'm new to it, but from what I've been reading here in the forums, it seems way better than Apple Finder's "merge" function. I just wish exFAT played better with Unix & Linux. Happy Sunday fun day and have a great 4th of July (for those that celebrate!)
  4. I simply ended up running the command: rsync -arPv --no-perms /mnt/user/Avid\ 101/ /mnt/disks/SPJ Files seemed to copy over with a few of those permission errors/noticies early on, but eveything seemed to transfer over just fine. I will find out later when I get back to working with the files. Thanks for the help!
  5. For as popular as qBittorrent has been getting recently — it sure is difficult to get qBittorrent working out of the box with Sonarr, Radarr, & Binhex's SABnzbd-VPN. The port changing isn't as straight forward in this container as it is in the other Binhex containers. I give up and I'm going back to the old setup that SpaceInvaderOne outlined in his video — which works with the Handbrake automation.
  6. Why do the permissions problems happen when trying to copy to /mnt/disks/Drive_Name? I see it in Midnight Commander and rsync I've formatted the external hard drive via the U.D. plugin to exFAT (I need macOS read/write compatibility) and I have these errors I could simply attach the HDD to my computer and transfer through SMB, but it's slower in doing so. Plus, macOS's merge function in the Finder isn't straight forward The same goes if I mount the HDD to the Unraid server via U.D. and then transfer the files from the macOS VM via SMB = slow Seems to happen when the functions are trying to create the base folders on the external HDD at the drive's root level
  7. Wow. Thank you so much for showing me some possible solutions. 🙏 Definitely will give these recommendations a shot and update this thread accordingly.
  8. Was curious to know if anyone is able to run Avid Media Composer 2018/19 or Media Composer First in a Windows VM. Avid checks to see if the Windows 10 is running as a VM and if it checks true, the software won't launch as they want you to purchase an enterprise license. However, that is not an option for me I'm simply trying to learn how to use the software so I can have viable job options and pay off these student loans. I just tried removing the Hyper-V lines from the XML template with no luck — Windows 10 still reports back that it is a virtual machine according to task manager. Do I need to recreate the template without Hyper-V enabled and then run the exisiting VM image? Or do I need to disable Hyper-V in a fresh template and perform a fresh Windows 10 install? Just trying to get Windows 10 not to report that it is running in a VM. Maybe then I can get Media Composer to work. I was able to install and open an older version of Media Composer, but it opens with errors and doesn't play back the video & audio previews — so that is a bust. I can use Media Composer in my macOS VM, but I am having issues with temporary freezing inside the VM
  9. That's great to hear! I just wish I could figure out what causes my system to freeze/hang from time to time. It's really hampering my work progress on Avid. What version of Clover are you running @J.Nerdy? What hardware profile do you have selected in Clover? Maybe that is my issue. I'll try to reset the hardware profile to the one that comes pre-selected in the Clover install from @SpaceInvaderOne's video.
  10. @ryanlio I can confirm as well that the Unassigned Devices plugin works with exFAT. I am able to copy files from & to the USB drive with Midnight Commander (MC) Although, will throw up a chown error after the file completes its transfer from the Unraid array to the USB drive. Another thing to note, is that you may not be able to share the USB drive via SMB because of exFAT. To use Midnight Commander open up a terminal window from the Unraid GUI (next to your log out button) and type in: mc You can also SSH into your Unraid server and use MC from there too.
  11. Hopefully your macOS VM runs smoothly. I'm running headless so I have to use either VNC or Splashtop. Ha. I think you found the delete button on your second post so, you're all good to go. Have a great weekend!
  12. I've been running a Plex media server off of my Nvidia Shield TV with okay results. One gets tired of being a "flagship" device yet to be treated like a red headed stepchild when it comes to server updates and software tech support. I've been kicking around the idea of utilizing a Plex docker, but there are so many options to choose it's easy to find yourself in paralysis. Binhex has a lot of great dockers that I am using already ( @binhex I'll have to buy you a beer/coffee/tea/wine/boba somtime when I'm not broke as a joke to say thanks), so it would make sense from a space & resource standpoint to use his/her docker. Plex official sounds great in theory as one wouldn't have to depend on independent maintainers, but like @jonathanm was saying — Plex isn't known for their world class support. linuxserver has a large following and it seems like they are very active in the maintenance of the docker, but you don't get to share some of the image layers that you would with Binhex's docker container. Their container is smaller than that of Binhex's though and their template is pretty straightforward especially if you want Nvidia GPU support within Unraid.
  13. Thanks for this tidbit @Crast. I was able get the Time Machine share to mount by disconnecting from all of my shares from within Finder and then connecting again with my user name and password. Although, Time Machine was now showing all of my shares even ones that weren't exported with the Time Machine flag. 😄 Now we'll see if the backup completes or not. 🤞 86 GB @ 5 hours seems writing directly to the array seems about right — right? 😆😅 **Update** I am happy to report that Time Machine via Unraid has been working successfully at backing up and restoring. Kudos and thanks to the @limetech team! After seeing the topic threads on the forums, I have been waiting for this day to come. Until next few generations of Unraid come, leaving an HDD attached and letting Time Machine intelligently backup between the two sources may not be such a bad idea.
  14. The freezing/lag issue of the macOS VM speaks for itself if it is happening on both Intel & AMD chips. I'm debating on rolling back, but not sure of the implications if I were to do so. Then again, you mentioned previously that you were experiencing performance issues in 6.6.7 as well. --- @J.Nerdy Let us know if your macOS VM is running smoothly and not lagging.
  15. When this happens you have to delete the orphaned image and re-install the Docker from scratch? Doh! *>_<* I guess not. Weird. Was able to click on 'Add Container' and in the drop down list select the problem container template and recover from where I left off; fix the offending parameter and not lose my stats. 👍
  16. It's still happening today. I even pinned all of the CPU's onto one die/core to make sure the "magic fabric" on the Threadripper wasn't the root cause. So currently the macOS High Sierra VM is on the first CPU of the Threadripper — still causing issues. I'll have to test out my other macOS VM that I created prior to upgrading to 6.67 to see if it is affected as well. That VM image got deleted previously...doh! Until then...stand-by to stand-by. @Amigaz You didn't happen to roll back to 6.6.7 did you? If you did, did the problems go away?
  17. @Jagadguru Thank you for taking the time to respond. I'll keep an eye open. The thing is, the VM will even hang with no applications open. What I have been observing yesterday is that the system will become extremely sluggish. If I step away for a while or some time and come back to the VM later, it corrects itself and is operational again. I will also check what's happening at the HDD level and monitor the write speeds on which drives. I'm wondering if there is some I/O that is causing the VM to lag. There are no overlapping of CPU pinning with regards to the VM + Docker. RAM usage on Unraid is at: 28.7/31.4 GB I have a high amount allocated towards the VM for Avid **Update** I am not noticing anything about the HDD activity that would warrant concern.
  18. Not sure what the heck is going on, but macOS will lag like a mofo. Booting up and logging in, the VM works great and then out of nowhere, the system will lag heavily making it unusable. Input still works and all, it just takes an eternity to see the actions happen. After a while, the lag goes away and I can use the VM normally again. I use Apple's Screen Sharing primarily and have Splashtop as a backup or for when I need audio; I notice this lag issue on both instances. When the lag happens on Splashtop, the connection will drop and then reconnect. Upon reconnect, the lag is still there. VM's are on an SSD cache. macOS: High Sierra Clover: 4674 Happens on Q35 3.1 & 3.0 Using iMac 18.3 profile in Clover Never had any issues until upgrading Unraid to 6.7.0 <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?> <domain type='kvm' id='31' xmlns:qemu='http://libvirt.org/schemas/domain/qemu/1.0'> <name>macOS -

  19. I have it turned on now for all SMB shares after upgrading to 6.6.7. 6.7.0. I haven't had much problems other than having to reset/fix permissions for my Downloads share. For some reason it doesn't mount properly and when I go to copy a file into the folder via Finder, I won't be able to at the root level of that particular share. I would fix permissions and if that didn't work, then I would create a new folder in there (for some reason it allows me to do that) and then copy the file into that new folder. From there I can drag it out of that newly created folder and drag it into the root directory of the Downloads share. Then copying of other files works normally again until the next hiccup. I feel that using finder to search on SMB shares works faster with the enhanced macOS interoperability.
  20. I was playing around with the setting despite reading the vfs_fruit package documentation and I had it turned on for two shares. I haven't played extensively enough to notice any file errors. However, any shares I mount within Mojave, I cannot access the sub-folders. They all read 0kb and have a "red negative icon" on them. I'm turning it off for now. I thought it might help with Spotlight searching on network shares...wishful thinking on my part.
  21. If the link I pulled is from the "official" site for Monero, then this should be what you are looking for: https://ww.getmonero.org/resources/user-guides/mining_with_xmrig_and_docker.html I found the guide by going to their site under Resources > User Guides > Mining > Mining with Docker & XMRig Who wrote the guide is beyond me especially since they refer to themselves in the guide. I'm sure you can message some of the Monero devs and inquire more about the author of the guide. I don't know anything about XMRig, but it looks like their code is up on GitHub, so I'd dig around in their source code for anything dubious. The same thing goes for looking at a Docker image. It looks like the "official" software from the monero developers has a function to solo mine built into the software. Have you thought about starting there? Maybe the function is also built into their CLI It looks like the CLI version of their software can mine so, you might be able to build a docker image using the Alpine docker image as your base. A quick search on Docker Hub shows me that kannix's docker image is the most popular. You will want to examine the Dockerfile for more clues. in kannix's case he's chosen Ubuntu for the OS install — which, if you want a lean install, you should go with Arch Linux (I know @binhex is a fan of Arch Linux due to his Docker builds.) Although, after some digging around it looks like Alpine docker is even leaner. However, in looking at his GitHub repository, someone filed a bug report stating that "Did you know that your container was used by someone else to make a virus?" but then doesn't reply when kannix inquires for more information. Not only that, but kannix's response doesn't instill confidence. Moreover, kannix likes to fork branches instead of developing code for the main branches he's forking off of; for what reason, I don't know. Even though he explicitly says it in his Dockerfile read me, you will see that if you run his docker image with the default settings, that you will be mining monero for him. With that being said, there could be many other maintainers out there throwing their version of mining software that may or may not throw kickbacks to the author — much like how people share referral codes on social media. So, check out some Dockerfiles from devs that you already trust to see what they are doing with the files and also check out some tutorials on how to create and wrap your own dockers. Hopefully that will help you decide on which dockers to install. And like I said before, take a look at the program's source code for clues. Thanks for the interesting question and for the boondoggle. I might just have to tinker around myself for fun one of these weekends.
  22. Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it @steve1977. I'll stick with the i440fx for now since it's working for me. I don't feel like making a backup of the vm, rebuilding the drivers upon boot, and tinkering with the vm. But in looking at the documentation for both machine types, logically it would make sense to build Windows 10 machines with Q35; the documentation out there needs to be refreshed, it's been a while. Good to know. I tried searching for something that says it in stone, but can't really find anything substantial — just what the conventional wisdom in the forums dictates. That being said, I asked my question again, since it's been several years since the conventional wisdom has been passed around and the documentation on CPU pinning didn't really give me much to work on; again information atrophy. I can attest this: Gaming on cores 16–31 with the Threadripper 1950x results in poor performance/FPS. Not sure why this is since the cores pinned should be purely on chip #2. I've tried with 6/8 cores and the FPS is lower than if I were to pin cores from the 2–15 pool. I've tried like hell to get pass-through to work on the EVGA GTX 1060 6G in Slot 01 and it simply wouldn't work for me. I tried even loading the VBIOS into the Unraid template with no success. It wasn't until I bought a cheapo card and threw it into the server that I was able to successfully pass-through my GPU; I'm passing through the GTX 1060 without having to dump the VBIOS and load it into the template. You know pass-through is working when you can see the GPU in your Windows device manager and it is not displaying any error codes. Additionally, you know pass-through is working when you can install the video drivers, reboot, and not see any error codes. You should see a "This device is working properly." in your device manager. Yes, there will be a degradation of graphics quality when game streaming. I am running Unraid in a headless state and using Parsec on a thin client for gaming with First Person Shooters in online multiplayer. I can tell the difference of quality when I look at the playback of my past matches. Moonlight seems to have a better picture quality than Parsec, but you cannot readily access the desktop or your other applications. Also, I seem to get better FPS with Moonlight than Parsec, but Parsec allows me to open and run Discord or any other application that I need to get to. @everyone: Please edit your posts with new thoughts/insight and throwing in a reason for the edit rather than creating multiple subsequent posts — it makes reading the threads easier and allows everyone to use their time more efficiently.
  23. I haven't ran into any issues of this sort with PUBG, Battlefield V, or Rainbow Six Siege. All the games have been working great with GPU passthrough (EVGA GTX 1060 6G) in Windows 10 Pro with i440fx-3.0. Occasionally, BFV will crash or experience some stutter, but I believe that's a problem with the game and not the Unraid + VM setup. PUBG uses BattlEye. And Ubisoft has ant-cheats to my knowledge. BFV...well the jury is still out on that one as EA/DICE uses FairFight which relies on server side statistical analysis, so...yeah.
  24. Are you noticing any performance improvements after switching to Q35-3.0.0? I've been happy so far with the gaming performance on i440fx-3.0 running BFV, R6, and PUBG. Maybe, I'll give it a try and report back. Also, I was trying to search on the forum, but is it imperative that we don't pin anything to CPU 0/1? I'm running a Threadripper and I think I would get better performance if isolating VM's to a single chip versus spreading the workload of the VM across the Infinity Fabric. Does Unraid OS specifically like the first CPU pinning slot? Or it doesn't matter as long as you leave a single core & hyperthread open for Unraid? === I also, want to link back to another thread that discusses Q35 and gaming performance so we have a cross-reference here.
  25. I'm definitely keeping an eye on the developments here and looking forward for this project to mature some more and come out of beta alpha. At the moment, I have the Handbrake docker setup with thanks to SpaceInvader One. It was a little cumbersome to setup initially with tweaking here and there for my tastes and needs; it works. One thing that is lacking from the Handbrake hack is the ability to flag certain videos to not encode them and simply pass them through to Sonarr. For example, a nightly news show or late night variety show that automatically gets deleted after you watch it doesn't need to be encoded into h.265. The Handbrake workflow also doesn't check for h.265 and will re-encode the file regardless thus, being redundant with some loss to picture quality. Another thing that I will be curious to see are the encoding customization settings for Unmanic. The Handbrake GUI is something that I am familiar and comfortable with (although, it could use a little more K.I.S.S.) and I would like to see some of those features in Unmanic. e.g., sound/surround sound encoding/downmixing, video encoder speed, etc.
