  1. Thanks very much! I removed the disk and replaced it with another WD Red 6TB I have. The array is now rebuilding.
  2. The parity check was running because I had it scheduled to run on the first of every month. It just finished now: The Main screen looks like this: The SMART for disk 6 looks like this: The free disk space on the cache stabilised. When I check the scheduler settings it doesn't show as the Mover working Is there another way to show you what the array operations are? What can we do about disk 6? Thank you very much for the help so far, it is really appreciated!!
  3. I think so. I did a pre-clear on disk 6. I had a USB drive attached and was using Krusader to copy data and at the same time I was copying data from my PC to it as well. I enabled the cache on a folder without considering that there wouldn't be enough cache free for the data I'm copying. I ran a quick SMART test and it also came back fine. Maybe it was too much for the drive and it bailed. How can I get it back enabled?
  4. The parity check is still running. Is it advisable I wait until it is finished before doing anything else?
  5. How do you do this? Is it the procedure of replacing a data drive and simply re-use the same one?
  6. If you mean what I copied today yes, not the other 30TB. Disk 6 is the latest I added to the array, I"m only copying some copies of backups onto it. How do I only rebuild disk 6? Edit: Do you mean following this procedure? https://wiki.unraid.net/Replacing_a_Data_Drive
  7. Hi, I was copying data to my unRaid Server and didn't notice that the cache ran full. I meanwhile changed the setting on the share to not use the cache and cancelled the copy-process. When I checked the unRAid dashboard I saw a lot of notifications that the cache was full andsomewhere in between that a drive was disabled. A parity check was running the past hours and still is. I attached the diagnostics file. The mover is running (I assume, as I can see space getting freed up on the cache drives). This is my Main dashboard: How come the drive was disabled? And what can I do now? I'm still very new to unRaid and still in the process of setting it up bit by bit. Many thanks!! Odom diagnostics-20190501-2002.zip
  8. Hello, I finally have my first unRaid server running and already replaced one older Qnap, I now want t o replace the other one I have. I have 3 Qnaps in my family spread out in 2 countries and they are currently replicating over the internet via Hybrid Backup (their tool, essentially uses rsync I think) but I now need to find out if it is possible (and how) to sync the other 3 Qnaps over the internet to my unRaid Server. Does anyone know how this can be done? I'm having a hard time figuring this out and finding useful information. I read that unRaid already includes rsync, but how do you use it? How do you execute commands? If I have another Qnap on the outside and I execute an rsync command on it, don't I need an rsync server/docker/deamon running on my unRaid that listens to these incomming requests? Or, easier yet if possible, do you know of a synchronisation tool that I could install on a Qnap and on unRaid and after some configuration they sync between each other? Many thanks!
  9. Correct, I have an old motherboard and CPU with no embedded iGPU, the external GPU is borrowed for now. I was planning on getting a simple one, like the GT 710, barely consumes anything.
  10. I have a workstation I use for daily activities (gaming, browsing, stuff you do at home ) and I was planning on eventually running some VM's on unRaid and just connect to them from my main PC. Some Linux VM's, various Windows Server editions, whatever labs I'd need for training, I wouldn't do any pass-through. So, with a cheap graphic card (like a GT 710 with low power consumption) I could still run VM's and connect via RDP or VNC just fine, if I understood you correctly?
  11. Hi, I'm very new to unRaid and am currently running a trial version on some old hardware (i7-950, 6GB 1066GHz RAM). I'm using multiple older drives that I had lying around. I'm trying to understand the requirement for graphic cards. I have an old one borrowed from my beighbor (Radeon HD7950) that gives me monitor output. So far so good. I eventually plan to put the server in a corner with only network and power and manage everything via the gui. Later I would like to have VM's, and this is the part that confuses me. I read about being able to pass-through hardware and graphic cards to a VM and the benefits of that. But what I don't understand is, do I have to do that? My VM's would only be for test labs, I would have no requirement for dedicated graphic cards in a VM, just to be able to have a VM running and using VNC or RDP to connect to it. I guess my question is, can I have a single graphics card and still run multiple VM's, possibly a monitor connected to the card as well? Or can I only have a graphics card to connect the monitor to and see the GUI, and then for VM's I would need another card? Can I use one for everything? This one more out of curiosity and understanding: If you pass-through a graphics card to a VM, can you still attach a monitor to it and view the output of unRaid, or will that no longer be possible?
  12. OK thanks. I guess when I get it I'll boot it up and will see what firmware it comes with. If it is below then I'll update it. I'm on day 5 of my unRaid trial and so far I'm only pre-clearing my old disks and finding out which ones need to be binned due to errors. I'm really excited to be playing with unRaid and the possibilities it offers. Can't believe i didn't hear about it before getting my Qnap...
  13. Hi, I purchased myself this card: LSI00244 9201-16i PCI-Express 2.0 x8 SATA / SAS Host Bus Adapter Card and I guess I have to flash it to IT Mode, right? (I just got into this and don't know much yet about these cards, but still learning ) I found a link earlier in this topic to this site: https://www.broadcom.com/support/download-search/?pg=Legacy+Products&pf=&pn=SAS+9201-16i+Host+Bus+Adapter&pa=Firmware&po=&dk= Could someone just confirm that this is the correct package that I need (bottom of the list): 9201-16i_Package_P20_IT_Firmware_BIOS_for_MSDOS_Windows Is this correct?
  14. Thank you for the help! i ended up getting the LSI 9201-16i off ebay. That way, if I need to expand in the future, I still have another PCI slot I can use.
  15. Hi, I'm new to unRaid and I just got my unRaid trial running on a temporary PC so that I can get used to it and learn about it. The only thing missing now is an LSI card, of which I don't know much about. I've been roaming these forums and reddit and I pretty much managed to get a list of many LSI cards. What I don't understand is: - is there a difference between them? - is there a limit of disk sizes they support? I noticed that most people here have 3TB and 4TB drives. What about 8TB - 14TB drives? Would these also work? So I found these to be commonly used: LSI 9201-8i LSI 9211-8i LSI 9207-8i LSI 9300-8i LSI 9201-16i LSI 9300-16i Dell H200/H310 IBM M1015 I also understand that they need to be flashedto IT mode. Preferrably I would like to be able to get 16 drives connected, to start with. Would you rather recommend to get two xxx-8i or one xxx-16i? On ebay in Germany the xxx-16i I can find for 100€, which is OK. And do I also understand correctly, that I then need to get an SFF-8087 to SATA breakout cable, something like this? Many thanks for your help! Odom
