  1. It was the router......so ashamed.
  2. But of course the firmware and driver updates are only available in Win, Redhat or Suse platforms so I can't install them. Bit catch 22 here, I can't get access to the webgui for the iLo maintenance page because I need an update to the iLo version!
  3. There is nothing else. Server NIC, cable to router. Haven't set up the rest of the network yet. I've tried the two ports on the back of the server and 43 of the port on the new router. I will check for bent pins though. I chatted HP support and the is definitely something not right as the BIOS will not allow me to change the DCHP settings. Despite me not having an active paid warranty, he has given me some updates to try.
  4. Yes tried different ports in the router. HP 332i NIC. HP support has given me the updates I need for the iLo system and NIC (despite the warranty bring out) so will try that when I get chance.
  5. So, still working on this. Upgraded the cache disc to SSD as I'd already ordered it and bought a LAN cable tester. Checked all the cables I have and all pass. Transfer speeds still low and I also notice the internet speed is an 1/8th of the speed of my laptop, which leads me to thinks it's the NIC driver. Am investigating how to update firmware parts from HPE for the Proliant Gen 8, how do I know if I have the right driver for UnRaid? HP site has various drive updates but for the following OS's Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Server (x86-64) (19) Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Server (19) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (AMD64/EM64T) (14) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86) (12) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 (18) VMware ESXi 5.0 (14) VMware vSphere 5.1 (21) VMware vSphere 5.5 (12) VMware vSphere 6.0 (13) VMware vSphere 6.5 (3) ??
  6. 12Mb/s as above. Even so 3-4 wireless?
  7. Upgraded to 6.6.6 (thought I'd done that already but must have been an intermediate update). Updated the Proliant Gen8 BIOS too. I've tried a different cable directly to the router from the server and a cable from the laptop to the server (which does improve it to 12Mb/s). Even tried the second NIC port (and both on the server). I just disconnected the cache drive in case it was that slowing the transfer, but no, 4Mb/s (tops) wireless. tower-diagnostics-20190114-1539.zip
  8. New router but was doing the same on the old one at the other house. Yes Gbit Ethernet, Cat5e cable installed. Flash drive replaced and error resolved for that. Transfer speed of 2.3Mb/s... tower-diagnostics-20190114-1049.zip
  9. Ah I see. Didn't know that and the error message doesn't give any indication s to why it's read only, must have been coincidence that out occurred when I was chasing the SMB settings. I'll get on to that asap. Also have a Cat5e cable to try so will get back to you. Thanks for the help.
  10. Yes, still trying to figure that out too. Will remove the case and do a check on the drive but suspect it was more to do with me changing the SMB share status of the flash drive.
  11. New router but was doing the same on the old one at the old house. Yes Gbit Ethernet. Surely on Cat5 should still get better? Flash drive is plugged in internally, never had problems with it until a tried to hide it from the shares on Monday after I updated the OS, but now getting warnings from the fix common problems app saying the flash drive is set to read only?
  12. Hello all, I'm not new to UnRaid (but am by no means an expert), have had my media server running for a few years now but have always had very low transfer speeds when writing to the server over LAN. Recently I moved house and have used a different CAT5 cable between the router and the server on the network but has made no difference to the transfer speeds of around 3mb/s. I must have something set-up wrong and am hoping someone can help me out and tell me what I have done wrong (please). Hace a cache disc and turbowrite installed.
