    Xeoma - Surveillance Software

    I couldn't even get a decent camera connection going....I admit my IP camera is a Foscam on the older side, but it wouldn't give me much control over it, like tilt and pan, etc....I had to keep dropping back to the camera UI to make adjustments.

    Xeoma - Surveillance Software

    I'm running dual Xeon E5270s (i think that's the right number) and it uses about half a percent at maximum.

    Xeoma - Surveillance Software

    It does work....what you have to do is run the docker, then install the Xeoma desktop software, access the server via the desktop, create a camera, and then you can access the web UI. Unfortunately tho, Xeoma is a terrible product and you get much, much more functionality with Zoneminder, its looks dated.

    Xeoma - Surveillance Software

    I'm trying to transition away from ZoneMinder....it works but it feels a decade old...plane text links, zero icons, etc....and it breaks up my motion detected videos into small chunks rather than just record an entire video with motion.

    Xeoma - Surveillance Software

    At least its not just me then....let me know if you manage to sort it? Dev seems to be quiet on here and the github, so not sure what to do. I did consider learning how to make Dockers and create one myself for xeoma

    Xeoma - Surveillance Software

    Hi I've installed the Docker, but I just get a 404 error on the 10090 port....nothing substantial in the logs expect for this.... Password set successfull *** Booting runit daemon... *** Runit started as PID 48 [Jan 21 10:22:40 AM] Starting the server in 5 seconds. See the log directory in your config directory for server logs. Jan 21 10:22:40 f23f404389f9 cron[53]: (CRON) INFO (pidfile fd = 3) Jan 21 10:22:40 f23f404389f9 cron[53]: (CRON) INFO (Skipping @reboot jobs -- not system startup) I would be grateful for any assistance. Kind regards, Leo

    UDMA CRC Errors

    Yeah, you could be right there....looking at the specs on the original SSD, they have the speeds as 180MB/s read, and 133MB/s write, whereas the new drives are upwards of 530MB/s, so it's probably the backplane not handling the throughput very well. I will just disable the error reporting and see how things go.....as longs as it doesn't go back to the whole thing crashing down like it did before, I'll stick with the latest drive and just disable the CRC error report. Thanks for your help!

    UDMA CRC Errors

    Thanks for the reply. If it were the backplane or cables, surely the other mechanical drives, or the original SSD would also be showing errors? When I swap back to the original SSD, there are no errors, its just with these two new SSDs. There is nothing mission critical on the cache, and anything that might be lost can just be either redownloaded or recovered from the previous days back up, so I'm not overly concerned about disabling the erroring....I can always check it manually periodically to see how it's doing, I just don't really want my phone chirping every few hours when something is downloading with a notification telling me what I already know

    UDMA CRC Errors

    Hi I have a HP DL180 G6 with 18TB (9 x 2TB) of SAS Drives, 2x 2TB Red NAS SATA drives, and a SanDisk 120GB SSD Cache drive. I have AppData set to the cache drive, as well as the downloads share (which is just a temporary intermediary location until the various apps file the downloads away to their correction locations), and I have the system drive on the Cache too. This has been running fine for several weeks, but I found the 120GB SSD Cache drive to be too small, so I decided to upgrade it. I got a Kingston 480GB SSD, installed it and got everything back up and running, but I got tons of UDMA CRC error notifications when I was downloading something. Also, over time I noticed the AppData CA Backup/Restore backup wasn't running correctly, dockers wouldn't start up again in the early hours after scheduled maintenance, and the docker log would fill up to 100%, and then after about a week of this, this whole thing would require a reboot to get running again, after which everything ran fine again till the next morning, all the time with constant CRC error notifications on the Cache drive. The errors are only clicking up 1 at a time, so a total of about 100 errors over a week. So I reverted to the original SSD, and everything worked fine again, no CRC Errors, no docker log filling up, etc, so I figured the new SSD was faulty, so I returned that one and got another one, this time a Crucial 500GB SSD. Installed this one and I'm getting UDMA CRC Errors again, but not to the same extent as the last SSD, and none of the server/docker errors, so far anyway. The CRC error count is currently at about 25. So, what could be the problem here? I can't change any cables which seems to be the usual culprit of CRC errors as all the drives are on the same backplane connected to the controller via SAS cables....none of the other drives are giving CRC errors. If the server continues to run fine with the second SSD, albeit with the CRC errors, can I just ignore the errors? Is there any way to disable the constant CRC error notifications without masking other errors that might arise in the future, or do I just have to live with them? Is this possibly a hardware incompatibility with my drive controller in the server and the drives themselves, and the SanDisk original SSD was fine, but the Kingston and Crucial are not? Should I get a 500GB SanDisk SSD and try that instead of the Crucial and Kingston? Thanks in advance! Leo

    Network Bonding Assistance

    Hi I currently have two NICs, one is a 4 port assigned completely to a VM for pfSense, and the other is an on-board 2 port for UnRaid. They are currently configured as two separate ports with a unique IP, but I would like to bond them together to spread the bandwidth across both ports, but I can't seem to configure it....at some point I seem to have created two Bond groups and now each port is assigned to a Bond group of its own and I can't change this....can anyone help? I've attached a screenshot of my network config page below...
  11. Unfortunately not...the modem is located near the front door at the master socket, and the server closet is on the first floor....either way I'd need to run a cable from the master socket and I'd rather do that in Cat5 to minimise speed loss than run a modem cable all that way. All the wiring is now in place, and I've configured pfSense and it's been running fine for the past week, which is good. However, the HG612 modem is still handling the PPPoE connection, which the modem on 192.168.2.1 and the pfSense VMS on 192.168.2.100. Is it possible for the pfSense VMS to handle the PPPoE login? I have two interfaces on the VMS, one is the WAN CAT6e which goes straight to LAN1 on the HG612, and then LAN CAT6e which feeds the connection into my network on a 192.168.1.* address base. In the Interfaces page in pfSense, I can change the WAN connection type to PPPoE....is it as simple as changing it to that, and putting in the Voda username and password, and then it'll handle the WAN login instead of the HG612, or does the HG612 have to handle the login??
  12. Yeah, you were right....it was connecting, and getting assigned a WAN ip address, but wouldn't allow any traffic. So I got the username and password from Vodafone and have got it connected and allowing the wonderful internet in! So, all that's on hold now until the NIC arrives, and then I've got some cabling to do to get from the modem, up to the server room, and then back out to my LAN.
  13. I think this was due to the Registration Key, but now it's been fixed so that once the key is installed (not Trial) the Server will then operate 'offline', so doesn't need WAN access at boot. If you are running a Trial key, then you need internet access at boot I believe. I've hit a roadblock with the NIC setup...I cannot separate my Dual NIC on one controller without causing problems, so I've ordered a separate PCIe Intel Quad NIC to install....I've got two spare PCIe slots anyway so not a problem and used ones are dirt cheap....doing it this way will allow me to have dual NICs to my lan for a bit more overhead once we go 4K around the house. Will be a couple of days until the new NIC arrives, so I will update the thread then. Thanks for everyone's input....much appreciated!
  14. I'm not too bothered about external access just yet, as I'm at home 90% of the time, and rarely need to access LAN stuff externally that desperately, although it would be a nice to have. I've dug out the OpenReach WAN modem, plugged in power and the DSL cable, and the DSL light flashed for a bit and then came on solid, so I assume its done its handshake and is happy, but I won't know until I configure pfSense and connect up the NIC port to the WAN modem.
  15. No, I wasn't expecting it to be straight forward, and I'm totally up for learning - I've recently upgraded from a pilgrim desktop PC being used as a server, to a fully rack mounted enterprise grade server running UnRaid, which took some learning. I'm not a total noob and am quite technically minded, but this aspect is totally new to me - when I said I don't know the terminology, I just didn't want to muddy the waters by trying to guess the correct terminology and sending people up the garden path and generally confusing things. Since posting this I've found pfSense and SpaceInvaderOne's videos and am watching them now. It sounds like it does exactly what I want, but I'm not sure I have the hardware as my current ISP supplied router (Vodafone) has the WAN modem built in, and obviously my server doesn't have a WAN modem, but I do have an old OpenReach modem which is a rebadged Huawei WAN modem, so I might be able to use that assuming Vodafone will share the authentication credentials with me, but I've not got to that part in the videos yet!
