  1. Thanks for finding that. In which log did you see this? Yes, the mainboard is quite old. It is an Asus P6T with an Intel Core i7-950. According to the Asus website, the latest firmware available is from 09/11/2010, I can give that a go. This is my first unRaid build and I didn't want to go all out with something brand new without having any experience with unRaid. Now that it is working quite well, I was planning to upgrade to one of the new AMDs and more cores and RAM. Thanks again for finding that!!
  2. Well, I rebooted my PC now and I can edit again. Strange, I don't get it.... Glad it's working, puzzled I don't know why...
  3. So, I have another PC in the living room serving as HTPC. It is also Windows 10. I have the same 3 shares mapped there, and interestingly there I can edit files.
  4. I attached the diagnostics zip file. diagnostics-20191104-1645.zip
  5. Quick update, I noticed the parity check didn't run on the 1st November due to the Server being shut down during the scheduled time. In October it indicated 7 errors after the parity check completed, but everything was working fine until yesterday. I now started a parity check, but that will take about 17 hours.
  6. I noticed today that I can't make any file changes to my shares (read-write, create files, delete files, etc...). I had this once in the past and a reboot of my unRaid server solved it. This time I still have the issue after my reboot. I don't know how to troubleshoot this in unRaid. The top-right button that says Logs doesn't show me any issues. I have multiple shares that the account I am using has RW permissions on. I have a Windows 10 PC and 3 of those shares I mapped to a drive (ex: \\\Software O:). Any changes I try and make in this and other shares I get Access Denied messages from Windows. I tried remapping the share in Windows with the user account and I still get the same error. If I go straight to the share (without having the drive mapped) I get the same message. Using Krusader I can make any change I want. I have unRaid Version: 6.7.2 installed. Could someone point me in the right direction on how to start troubleshooting this? Maybe where I can find logs for authentication errors? Many thanks!!
  7. Sorry for the late reply. I ended up using Syncthing to synchronise the data. Qnap has an alternate inofficial appstore aclled Qnapclub (https://www.qnapclub.eu/en). They have instructions on their website on how to add it to your Qnap Apps app. From there you can install Syncthing. I did run into an issue though, Syncthing apparently doesn't work on Atom CPUs. Both my aprents and brother's Qnaps have a Celeron CPU and there I can install Syncthing. My parents-in-law have one with an Atom CPU and I can't get it installed there. I used Spaceinvader One's video on how to configure Syncthing, as the tool wasn't straightforward to me.
  8. Thanks very much! I removed the disk and replaced it with another WD Red 6TB I have. The array is now rebuilding.
  9. 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!!
  10. 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?
  11. The parity check is still running. Is it advisable I wait until it is finished before doing anything else?
  12. How do you do this? Is it the procedure of replacing a data drive and simply re-use the same one?
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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!
  16. 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.
  17. 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?
  18. 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?
  19. 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...
  20. 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?
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. Many thanks for the help, I didn't know that you could request certain drivers to be added to unRaid. I've got a very old PC from my brother since a couple of days ago and am giving uRaid Trial a go. My next purchase is an LSI expander card, after that I'll try and finalise my first build.
  24. Hi, I'm planning to get unRaid and build a setup based on Ryzen 5 2600. As I have been out of touch with hardware I'm having a hard time deciding on compatible hardware (mainboard & ECC RAM). I found a mainboard (ASRock X470 Taichi Ultimate) that has a built-in 10GBe NIC. Is there a compatibility list where I can find out if this 10GBe NIC is compatible with unRaid? Or if I decide to get another 10GBe NIC (not built-in to the mainboard, as the ASUS 10GBe for example).
