  1. Has anyone figured out how to restore a VM from backup yet? I just had a cache drive crash and trying to restore a Debian VM that was created from a physical disk using p2v so the VM was on 256G or thereabout. Now when I try to manually replace the vdisk.img it is about 1G and when I try to boot the vm it fails to boot with a lot of errors like: Device /dev/vda5 has size of 1584128 sectors which is smaller than corresponding PV size of 249567232 sectors. Was device resized? I have tried to increase the VM disk size from unraid gui but then it first gives a lot of errors: Failed to connect to lvmetad. Falling back to device scanning. Then ends on: /dev/mapper/debian--vg-root: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY. After I ran fsck on debian--vg-root it found and fixed a lot of errors and now ends on failed to mount /dev and /run with "No such file or directory" So it fails to find init Also my backup folder for this VM contains tar.gz from each of the backup dates with vdisk1.img and the xml but also a vdisk.img in the root directory unzipped that has the exact same timestamp and name but is a lot smaller. Does anyone have any clue on what I need to do to restore or is the backup file broken? Many thanks! //Zilched
  2. I would also be very interested in this, currently running weewx from a VM since I haven't figured out how to set it up as a docker.
  3. No I temporarily gave up my ambition to transition my daily driver from Windows to Ubuntu but have since then installed another GFX card so been meaning to give it another go and see if I can get it to work with a Nvidia rtx 2070s.
  4. Hi, I'm having trouble with getting a Ubuntu VM to work with my Nvidia GTX 760. I am passing it through together with the sound card in multifunction mode and have also dumped bios and this exact setup works fine for my Windows VM. When I first installed Ubuntu everything looks great using Nvidia drivers, the issue starts after I ran the first software update. Then after reboot I sometimes get stuck in login loop where I can press CTRL + ALT + F3 to get to a terminal where the graphic is extremely broken with lots of strange colours and sometimes I get some unity window overlay and other graphical bugs. I also quite often get to desktop but it's completely frozen and only thing that works is CTRL + ALT + DEL to reboot. If I boot to recovery and just launch straight from there everything looks good and from what I can tell Nvidia driver loads fine. I have tried Nvidia Driver version 340, 390, 430, 435, 440 and it makes no big difference (some seem to more often go straight to frozen desktop and some more to login loop screen) If I install Nouveau driver everything looks good. I have tried to set GRUB bootloaded to video=efifb:off with little success I'm fairly new to this side of Unraid and I am completely out of ideas so does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get it to work with Nvidia drivers? Thanks in advance!
  5. Hi, did you find a solution? Seems I got something similar that started out of the blue the other day without any updates or changes that I know of (have not yet installed 6.8.3). I am running a win 10 VM with passthrough nvme so no vdisk and I just noticed that youtube videos started buffering and going down to 144p so ran a speedtest and got 100 download and 0,8 upload while unraid server gets 100/100. I also get weird behaviour when uploading files from win10 vm to unraid SMB shares. It just stays stuck on Calculating for a long time then gives an network error while it does look like the file gets uploaded. This is definitely something with windows or this particular VM since my linux distros doesn't experience this behaviour. Update Seems like updating virtio drivers solved my problem
  6. I'm running the Taichi with a lenovo 530-8i (LSI9440) and it works perfect (leaving out all the hassle to get that card into IT mode).
