  1. These are the HDMI dummy plugs I use. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0746HLHKM/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 All I had to do was just plug them in. Then I used splashtop, vnc, jump desktop, no machine, etc, to connect to vm and set video resolution. The things just work and I haven't had any issues using a gtx645 and a gtx1050ti. I've used the vm's as steam hosts for steam links and Nvidia gamestream to shield tv's. I'm shocked how well it all works.
  2. It was roughly 50 hours each on the preclear hooked up to a lsi SAS9211-8I. Pretty sure the drive/controller is the bottleneck.
  3. I did not have the 3.3v issue on the 10's I got, but I put them in a istar BPU-350SATA. Drives are scary fast compared to my old 3tb 7200rpm Seagate's.
  4. Here is how I have the cage turned in the z420. And here is the space on the backside, turning the drives the way I did put the spacer on the motherboard side which helped a lot. Hope this helps.
  5. I have a iStarUSA BPU-350SATA-BPL in mine. I rotated the 5.25 bays to have the drive trays horizontal. It clears the mobs fine. It was still a tight fit and I had to "trim" on the long hp screws so they wouldn't interfere with the trays. I'll try to take a picture later if you'd like.
  6. Best Buy has their Black Friday deals going. WD - Easystore 10TB External USB 3.0 Hard Drive with 32GB Easystore USB Flash Drive Model:WDBCKA0100HBK-NE32 https://www.bestbuy.com/site/wd-easystore-10tb-external-usb-3-0-hard-drive-with-32gb-easystore-usb-flash-drive-black/6290669.p?skuId=6290669 I had been waiting on the 8's but the 10's will work at this price.
  7. I confirm the 1.5b version now works great on High Sierra. Thanks guys!
  8. That resolved the issue on windows, but I do not see an updated version for Mac yet. The link goes to the 1.5 version, not 1.5b like windows. For giggles I went ahead and downloaded it again and tried, same issue.
  9. I've tried the new 1.5 USB creator on 2 different Macs, both High Sierra, and it will not list USB devices. I've tried multiple flash drives from 4gb to 32gb. I also tried my windows 10 pc, and it comes up with the pictured dll error. I was able to download the beta originally posted from this thread and create a usb drive on the same Mac that would not list usb devices. Please let me know if I can do any more testing.
  10. You could try using the Unassigned Devices plugin to mount the smb path to a local path then use the local path in your emby docker. I do this for a different docker i'm using. One thing to note is that you need to restart the docker engine to get it to see the new path. As for adding unraid to ad, i gave up on that in the v5 releases, it rarely ever worked. It was solid in v4 though.

    this got it working for me on the windows side. I've yet to try the setup on the unraid server side due to needing a reboot.
  12. I got these last year on a whim, nothing fancy but they work. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FZSQNEO/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  13. I am in the same situation as you Jim. In my research, i came across this article about how to setup multiple bridges for multiple vlans for KVM. http://blog.davidvassallo.me/2012/05/05/kvm-brctl-in-linux-bringing-vlans-to-the-guests/ I have not got a chance to try it on my test server, but it is on my todo list. In theory if it works you can just pick what bridge(vlan) you want to use like we do now with vswitches. The key will be making sure it survives a reboot, which will probably require some GO file modifications. Hope this helps.
  14. Just upgraded, had one small odd issue. I have a single non ssd disk as a cache drive formatted as xfs. After the upgrade it reset my cache disk slots from 1 to 4 and set default format of cache to btrfs. That resulted in it wanting to format my cache drive. I stopped the array, changed cache disk slots back to 1, and set cache format to xfs, then the array started and my cache drive was fine. Hope this helps anyone else that encounters the same issue.
  15. Make sure your guest is set to Ubuntu, other wise the 2 usb drive trick won't work.
