  1. I am looking at upgrading my server to a Ryzen-based system. I need two PCI-e x16 slots for controllers, and that leaves every MB I'm looking at, within my price range, with only x1 slots left. I can't find x1 VGA cards around that come with full-height slot covers. Can a modern BIOS and unraid boot from a USB VGA device? Thanks.
  2. How about an LSI 9206-16e and several of these cables? https://www.ebay.com/itm/274093034776?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=274093034776&targetid=1264870804984&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9030236&poi=&campaignid=11614425263&mkgroupid=126161674990&rlsatarget=pla-1264870804984&abcId=9300456&merchantid=101977857&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIx_DLoZKg8QIVluCzCh1DnAQmEAQYASABEgJ1tvD_BwE Hopefully ebay links are OK to post here
  3. Let me follow up to my own post. I can put an LSI 9207-8e in my server (or the 16 port version if I can find one) and then use a spare Antec 900 as a drive box. I just need whatever interface device I would need on the other end, to connect to all the disks in the Antec 900, with an external SAS connector to talk to the LSI.
  4. Server is nearly full and I'm not ready to drop $350+ per drive to upgrade. I have 2x8TB parity disks and 14 8TB member disks. I've got a PCIe slot free. I also have a stack of upgraded drives (4TB and 6TB). Was thinking about a small external enclosure with 5-8 drive bays and running a SAS controller to the enclosure. I realize this puts all the disks one one channel. The server sees little use and its mostly my family streaming content over a 10MB upstream cable modem connection, so I don't think bandwidth will be an issue. I looked at this setup year

  6. I've been using the iStarUSA 5-in-1s for going on a decade with essentially zero issues.

    All these threads are old. Is this forum still alive? I've been buying 8TB WD externals for a while, but I am at a point now where I need to move to larger disks array-wide. I see MFGs are up to 18TB disks now. Holy moly. I think going from 8TB disks to 10TB or 12TB might not make a whole lot of sense.... But the 18TB disks are very, very expensive. What's the sweet spot for teen TB disks these days? Thanks.
  8. I managed to set up the VLAN. br1 is the main interface, for unraid and for plex. br1.10 is new VLAN interface, tagged with 10. I set up as unraid's IP address for this VLAN. However, in the docker edit for Plex, I cannot select multiple interfaces. How can I get Plex to answer across both networks, ie, accessible on the main network at and VLAN 10 at Thanks.
  9. Is there one? Not sure if this should go in the Docker area or not, so here it is. I have three VLANs on my network; an IOT and Guest network are totally isolated and can only reach the internet. The third VLAN is for phones and tablets and other less-than-secure devices that I do not want seeing other hosts on the network. However, a couple of those devices (Roku, iPhones) use Plex to reach my server, which has its own IP address as a docker on my unraid server. I would like to set up VLANs on my server in such a way as to provide the hosts on that third
  10. Is there a way to make headphones smarter about scanning folders for existing music? I have a share called "music," and in that there are 36 folders: 0-9 and A-Z. I have all of my artists arranged alphabetically and numerically, for the sake of ease of organization. Of course when I point headphones to "/music," it thinks there is no music present and I get everything downloaded in duplicate. Aside from having every artist in the /music folder, is there a better way?
  11. Dockers can't point to pi-hole, is my understanding, and my docker and plug-in update checks were taking upwards of 6-10 minutes. Also now I can do service on my server without taking down DNS for the whole house. The pi-hole docker is sweet but my needs are much better served with a real device.
  12. In order to install unbound and run as an upstream DNS server. I am trying not to use external DNS unless they are the root-level servers. I scrapped the docker and went back to running pi-hole on an actual pi.
  13. How do I configure pi-hole on docker to accept incoming ssh connections?
  14. Sonarr is finding episodes and sending them to sab, with the little notification "send to sab" and the little cloud download icon, but sab is not getting the request (or if it is, its not showing up on the download page). Some shows are working just fine, others seem not to be at all. Nothing has changed, configuration-wise, in years. Any ideas where to start?
