  1. @Constructor thanks, had a look, I have reduced my memory bandwidth as per the article, no impact. Will try updating my BIOS, seems like AMD has issue the new AGESA patch and my issue seems to relate to the PCI driver (which should in theory relates to the BIOS)...
  2. Any comments from the Developers? Any troubleshooting methodology that the Developers can recommend?
  3. 6pm update: 1. Updated my motherboard bios to the latest 2. Magically this allow me to boot into the GUI again, not because there is an issue with the firmware but because the BIOS update reset my system and disable all virtualization stuffs... somehow this allow me to get back to the GUI again... 3. Clear my config file, etc to tidy things up, and get the boot stable again and turning on all the virtualization stuffs again - AMD-V 4. But now, I encountered a new problem, I can start my Windows 10 VM using VNC but I can't get this to work with GPU passthrough. It was working 100% before the system crashed down on me few days ago. 5. The VM starts then paused and generate error message... Error message as per below: I have tried several of the recommended solutions like amd_iommu=on iommu=pt pci=noaer vfio_iommu_type1.allow_unsafe_interrupts=1 acs pcie_acs_override=downstream, including enabling Hyper-V and Q35, it manages to boot but showing blank screen (i.e. no video output)... Any suggestions/recommendation that I can try out? Note: The whole thing was working correctly using 6.6.7 just a week ago before all the troubles begin!
  4. Hi Frank, 1. Console, i type diagnostic and it outputs the file 2. It is in the logs folder. I found it after I use windows pc to browse the usb stick Cheers.
  5. I managed to do a chkdsk and fixed the error -> Try to reboot my server again, didn't work I then copied the previous folder to the main/root folder -> Still doesn't work, the localhost still refuse to connect and display the GUI But I managed to do a diagnostic (now attached), any help would be appreciated! Note: I am unsure why the date is showing Feb 15? I can only tell that's the latest diagnostic file that I did.... tower-diagnostics-20200215-2249.zip
  6. Thanks, I have to plug it to my windows machine then. I'll do it tomorrow morning, to late to do this at this hour.... I will post back how it goes....
  7. Thanks Frank, where is the location of the previous folder? Is it in /usr ?
  8. I wish I can do that through the Web GUI, it doesn't work currently (can't connect to the GUI). Is there a way to do it through command prompt?
  9. Thanks for the reply... Yes, I should've done diagnostic but it is too late now. What version were you on before upgrading? It is 6.6.7 Did you stress test (e.g. run a preclear cycle) your drives before adding to the array? Yeap, all good, using the preclear plugin Your issue with booting looks to be a problem with the USB stick. Are you able to plug it into another (Windows) computer and run a disk check? - I can try, it is booting but then failed to load the necessary stuff to load the UNRAID GUI... Is your stick USB 3.0 or 2.0? Are you using USB 3.0 or 2.0 port on your motherboard for the stick? USB3.0, it has been working perfectly before the upgrade, no issue whatsoever... it worked for 1-2 days after the upgrade, so I am not sure what has changed since the last time, other than it crapped itself... but too many coincidences, first drive failure then USB drive failure after 1-2 days, after upgrading to 6.8.3... all point out to 6.8.3 version that create unstable environment somehow and then all these issues.... -NOTE: The login screen works, I can enter my root password and get in, but the Mozilla GUI is saying Unable to connect (the address here is localhost) One thing that really painful here is not only I have issue with the array (and VMs) but I have issue with the USB drive itself after the upgrade, the devs should build an automatic roll back feature inside the GUI/through the boot prompt similar to what Windows have (albeit that one only occasionally work)....
  10. I am at my wits end, this is the second time when I tried to upgrade and the whole thing went wrong. First time, it killed a drive and then I rolled back, encounter zero issue since then. After a while a prompt showing that I should upgrade to minimise some login vulnerability so I upgraded to the latest 6.8.3 (I think, I can't my server now). 1. First, it killed a functional almost 6 months old - 4TB drive. One of my VM just hang and when I reboot, one of the drive is showing an error and requiring me to rebuild the array. (note: this happened last time as well when I tried to upgrade about 6 months ago). 2. Went to the shop and spent $150 to get another 4TB drive, change into a completely different SATA port and use a brand new SATA cable for just in case scenario. 3. Spent 12 hours rebuilding the parity and then I started my Windows 10 VM. 4. It was a patchy start for the VM requiring me to reattach the keyboard and mouse multiple times before the VM detected them. Then occasionally after a while the screen will turn off by itself, requiring me to turn off the VM and restart it back again. I did this 2 times then the whole things just crashed. 5. Went to the GUI and saw that one of the drive failed again! This is a brand new 4TB drive that I just bought! 6. The whole UNRAID is unresponsive, forcing me to restart the server.... now UNRAID refuse to boot! It says "...waiting for /dev/disk/by-label/UNRAID (will check for 30 sec) at boot up..." and "cannot find device Bond0" and the whole gui refuse to start.... (see attachment)... I just can't imagine UNRAID releasing so unstable release and it actually kills hardware without a possibility to fix it. This experience has really leave a bad impression, even if I rebuild the whole things (which will take days), I don't know if I can trust the solution again.... Happy to listen to suggestions... (and thanks in advance) My system: Motherboard ASROCK Taichi CPU AMD Ryzen 5900 RAM 32 GB
  11. Happy Bday! I love Unraid as it keeps my data secure, ability to run multiple VMs (both Windows and Linux), ability to run dockers and etc. It simply make my life so much easier!!! I wish I can have have Unraid for Laptop,... cmon do it! Do it!!!
  12. scorcho99, did you manage to make this work? I want to change the Hibernate button to Saved state. That way I can just start the VM and get back to my work straight away... Is there a way to change how the default setting works?
  13. Thanks, but isn't that provide a security hole to the encrypted drive? i.e. An unauthorised user can login to the gui, use the docker - like Krusader and see the encrypted files? Is there a docker/plugins that would provide access control? Even to just provide one logon (like root password) to protect the Web GUI. Thanks, I did setup a root password. To access the direct GUI (not //tower) after boot, I need to enter the root password. But I use several browsers (including the incognito mode) and I am still able to access the //tower without entering any password...
  14. No, actual 2GB USB sticks as it is only a test array to speed up the parity build, etc. I precleared using the plugin, then attached them into the array as per normal, then formatted them (before this I also set the default filesystem to xfs-encrypted). Yes, exactly. That's the thing I don't know how to limit access to other users to the //tower. I know how to limit certain share to certain users but not to the //tower... may be I am missing something, but I can't find anything in the manual to do this....
  15. Hey Unraid-ers, I have few questions in regards encryption. I am a long-term user of TrueCrypt then VeraCrypt for Windows but now with my Unraid array in operation I am testing few encryption scenarios with the intention to move all my VeraCrypt files to Unraid. I am testing this on another PC using 2GB USBs (otherwise it will take to long to rebuild the array and perform parity check). I setup 4 drives (2 xfs based and 2 xfs-encrypted) as I only need to encrypt less than half of my files (namely financial data, documents, etc). And if something happen to my array, I can still recover the non-encrypted portion of my array. With the encrypted files, I do make regular backup on cloud/external storage as well, so minimal chance of losing critical data. Now I have watched the awesome Spaceinvader One's video but I am a bit uncertain on few things: 1. Can I partially encrypt my array? Will that cause any security issue? 2. I encrypted 2 usb drives with xfs-encrypted by changing the default file system to xfs-encrypted but in the Main page (GUI) after pre-clean, formatting and attaching them to the array, they still say xfs, is that a normal behaviour? Also, I don't see the padlock sign like the video. 3. I restarted and rebooted the array few times to test it, and everytime it asked me to enter the passphrase, but I can enter any/new passphrase? Is that normal? When using TC or VC, I need to enter the same passphrase. 4. If somehow, I decided to take an encrypted disk from the array, is there an application that will allow me to see and transfer the files (obviously after entering the correct passphrase) ala TC/VC? 5. I can already limit the access to the encrypted shares (let's call it "secret" share) to other PCs in my network by changing the access level in SHARES, but I can't find any feature to block users from accessing the //tower in UNRAID. A user can still see what those files are by going to //tower and run the Krusader docker. Is there a away to limit access to //tower? Thanks in advance for reading, and if you by chance know the answer and want to reply, even more thanks!
