  1. I have been trying to talk to some people at the vmware community, and they are genereally of the idea that when it is passthroughed to the vm, then esxi has nothing more to do with it. And saying maybe i need some driver for linux. I found this: https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/swd/detail?swItemId=MTX_42b6aa58956a438aa85bd73d0f#tab3 but it asks for rpm to install, and i dont know if that is possible in unraid. am i on the right track here ?
  2. little update. i tried to add append mpt3sas.msix_disable=1 as it says in but it did not help. Also tried to update esxi to 6.7, also did not help. also i am not sure if i matters but vsphere says something about the guest os being wrong
  3. I searched for p420 and nothing came up. If i try to search for "hp" then i afew things like: hpsa 0000:03:00.0: failed to enter simple mode hpsa 0000:03:00.0: Logical aborts not supported 03:00.0 is the smart array, and here is what it says about Aug 18 12:41:23 SausageMix kernel: pci 0000:03:00.0: [103c:323b] type 00 class 0x010400 Aug 18 12:41:23 SausageMix kernel: pci 0000:03:00.0: reg 0x10: [mem 0xfd300000-0xfd3fffff 64bit] Aug 18 12:41:23 SausageMix kernel: pci 0000:03:00.0: reg 0x18: [mem 0xfd4ff000-0xfd4ff3ff 64bit] Aug 18 12:41:23 SausageMix kernel: pci 0000:03:00.0: reg 0x20: [io 0x4000-0x40ff] Aug 18 12:41:23 SausageMix kernel: pci 0000:03:00.0: PME# supported from D0 D1 D3hot Aug 18 12:41:23 SausageMix kernel: pci 0000:03:00.0: disabling ASPM on pre-1.1 PCIe device.

  4. Greetings everyone! So i have an HP DL380p gen 8 server, with a p420i that is configured for HBA/IT-mode. I have been running this for a while now with unraid running as bare metal, and it has been running fine. Sure it took some configuring to make it work, like changing to hba mode, installing hpsahba plugin and so to make it work. Anyways, i am pretty familiar with vmware esxi, and wanted to run it on the bare metal, as i got my hands on a nvidia grid k2 card that i have installed in the server to use with vm's that has to run on esxi 6.5. The short version is when i run unraid on esxi, add the unraid usb to the vm, and passthrough the pci devices that is needed like the p420i etc, i get the array controller show up under system devices, but no disks. When i boot straight into the same usb and run unraid bare metal, then there is no problem. Does anyone have any idea why this happens ? I have tried to boot via PLOP and that gives the same result. Update!, It turned out that i needed to update to esxi 6.7 and even after i had done that it still did not work, but it was because i had forgotten to upgrade the esxi compatibility to 6.7u2 aswell. Big thanks to @AgentXXL for staying up with me and trying to work this out! ❤️ Best regards -Apil
  5. Hi @Patrizzle Thanks for your reply, happy i could help you. Though getting temps by filling in 194 does not seem to fix it for me Even though i see the Attribute of Temperture celsius comes up as 194 in the list. BR Apil
  6. I am missing something, as i have tried to add the bridgenetwork to the allowed peers, but then i cant reach my dockers on those ips locally anymore. I am trying to have my dockers, or the whole unraid server route all traffic to the internet through my vpn, but still be able to access all of my unraid server and its dockers as normally via lan. Where am i going wrong ? BR Apil
  7. Hey everyone. So i am trying to get the Dynamix Wireguard Plugin to work, to have my unraid server only communicate internet traffic through my vpn. I got everything work with importing the config, and connection is being created., but maybe a little too well. Because when it is up and connected, then i cannot reach the unraid server anymore via LAN, but ALL traffics seems to go through the VPN. I am looking for an option to ignore my lan and input a lan subnet somewhere, but cant figure it out. Anyone able to help ?
  8. Okay, then i am lost for reasons why i am seeing this bottleneck. I also tried to use unbalance to move files inbetween disks, and was seeing the same bottleneck.
  9. Thank you JorgeB. I have now tried to enable reconstruct write, and it did start off great with 100 MB/s on the transfer only to fall down slowly to 30 MB/s again furing the next 15 secounds. Is 30 MB/s just what i can expect due to filesystems or how the array works ? I dont even have a parity disk enabled at this moment.
  10. Hi everyone! I hope someone is able to help me figure out this problem i am having. I recently bought a new server to setup with unraid. Its an HP ProLiant DL380p gen 8, 2 x 12 core, 128gb 1833 mhz ecc ddr3 ram dual 10 gig nic, Smart Array P420i Controller setup in HBA mode and with 8 WD red 3 TB disks (HxV83Km9TeRi). Everything seems to be working fine, expect for that i am trying to copy my data back on to this new server and there is a bottleneck at about 30-33 MB/s that i cannot figure out where is. I have done full preclear on all disks successful. I have tried to copy both from an external usb drive connected via usb3 directly to the server, then copying with MC in terminal on the server, and also copying from network to disks. No matter how i copy to disks there is a shared 30 MB/s write speed, for example if i have the usb conected drive copying, it will start at 30 MB/s and stay there, until i start a network copy (even to a different drive), and the bandwith that the network runs at will be taken away from the usb copy, so it is clearly shared. I have tried to run the diskspeed benchmark test, and all the drives seems fine and starts off at 150 MB/s and ends at 90 MB/s at the end of the test, as expected. Same values is seen when preclear ran. Benchmark of the P420i also showed full 150 MB/s speed when ran simultatiously across all drives. I even tried resetting the array and running it without a parity drive, still 30 MB/s. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening, and where the bottleneck could be ? Best regard Apil
  11. HI! First of all thanks for reading my post! I am a new user to unraid, and bought a HP ProLiant DL380p Gen8 with 12 x 3.5 bays. Currently with 8 x WDC_WD30EFRX-68E Disks. This comes with a HP Smart Array P420i raid card that i changed to HBA Mode. All drives are detected but the problem is that i am not getting any data about temp and smart. I tried changing the Default SMART controller type to HP cciss and have rebooted the server, but does not seem to make any difference. Anyone know how i can fix this ? Hope you have a great day! Best regards Apil Update: I made some progress, and can now see Smart Data under each disk. I did this by intalling the plugin "hpsahba" from the CA apps, and then setting Default SMART controller type to SAT. Though i do not get Tempeture readings still Update again! So i see that the Attribute of 194, Temperature celsius is there, but for some reason it still does not show on the Dashboard/Main page. Wierd.
