  1. No it was xfx from the Flax farmer. I've not looked at hdd yet. It's just a mistake in text of the new farmer is my guess.
  2. Just a small thing I noticed. In my alerts the Flax farmer claims to have won 1.75 XCH I nearly spilled my cup of tea!!! I wish it was true LOL (XFX) ========================================================== "SERVER1 flax WALLET Cha-ching! Just received 1.75 XCH ☘️" ==========================================================
  3. Apparently having flax in the list of coins farmed was the issue. Anyone else having issues should remove it then reinstall it. (Some of the old settings carry over but effect things) Was looking forward to this update. 3 coin farming action.... Nice.
  4. Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application. I've been offline since auto update and I can't bring it back exactly what I need at 4am
  5. Is your bios up to date (that can effect vfio groups) (see above post... forgot to tag you in) @okkies
  6. That all looks pretty good. I did see that despite the fact that your running acs "downstream" your board has split the gpu into 2 groups like what you'd see with acs "both". I am forced to run "both" on one of my systems so that can work but if you can get them to become one device on it's own group that's better because some nvidia drivers get upset. Apart from that your looking at os level issues in nicehash os and they really don't give you much in the way of tools for troubleshooting. HiveOS is one of the OS's real miners would use. It's quite easy (especially compared to unraid) but it has a lot more tools than the nicehash os. (It would at least allow you to bash in or just visit the web gui and see what's happening.) Loads of videos on YouTube about it. Another one that exists but wouldn't suit your multi-vm approach is t-rex miner as a docker container. (Witch is good if you don't want to vfio your gpu away from unraid.) I tried nicehash os a couple of months ago and gave up and moved to HiveOS since then I've expanded and have a few rigs and needed a vm on one rig (I've done a few windows gaming vm's before) I tried nicehash os and was let down again and decided I'd virtualize HiveOS. It's been doing really well I still mine to nicehash because it's convenient etc but nicehashOS for me didn't work out. (Similar issues)
  7. Are you on q35 or i440fx? Sounds a lot like the classic i440fx issue of stutter. (just a guess) if not maybe give it a try with or without a monitor attached (is it the only GPU in the system? and is binding in VFIO working?)
  8. Have you considered just using a VM of HiveOS instead? Since you can since you can still mine to NiceHash in HiveOS but you can do your own overclock and it'll probably be about %5 more profitable. That's not a lot of information there bud. Have you attached new devices? More HDD's or NVMe maybe? What slot is the GPU in? Is it on a x1 or x16? How is your iommu set up? (some boards have real problems with passthrough) One of my boards is a massive pain and will only work with PCIe ACS override set to both and as with many boards if you use all slots you can lose some sata ports due to PCIe switching. Do you Bind the devices in the VFIO options AKA UNRAID TOOLS/SYSTEM DEVICES? What do the groups look like?
  9. For GPU mining 1500mb is enough but CPU mining requires the DAG to be held in ram I'd check to see that you are not just wasting money since CPU mining is not very profitable (today my 5900x is making £0 profit, a few days ago it was £0.50p a day) If you're not mining with at least 1 GPU it is pointless. (the NiceHash windows client can be configured to stop mining when profit drops below cost witch is the only way I'd ever consider CPU mining)
  10. ETH is top dog at the moment so all good there. If your on a good pool then the only thing left to do is see how far you can over clock it before you get a little red number next to it or have the vm crash Try and limit the power, boost the ram and drop the core. (YouTube 2060 OC on HiveOS and see if you can find one with the same memory type... even then the settings will be different) tip... Your looking for slow core and fast ram with low power (maybe 950-1080 core 2000-2500 mem and power as low as it'll go (i think 70w) I don't have a 2060 but my 1660ti gets 31mh/s and my 2070 gets 44mh/s, the internet says you should get 33mh/s but you'll need to dial it in and see what your silicon will do. It's not difficult but it takes a while (it might run for a few hours and then crash if you are a little to high) Re CPU... Unless you have a very very current gen CPU don't mine with CPU or you'll spend more on power than you make. (5800x is ok but 1800x will lose you money) (my 5900x makes like £0.50 a day so it hardly worth worrying about compared to the 10 cards in the other room)
  11. Pretty straightforward if you've ever set up a vm with hardware passthrough. (anyone struggling should look into that) Awesome Job Thanks
  12. Mover Tuning Plugin has this feature Also consider setting your "Finished Downloads" folder as a separate share so it can have a cache option of "Yes" and your "Downloading" folder as a separate share with it's cache option set to "Prefer" You might have to fiddle with the template of your download client to add a share folder but it's a good idea to do it this way
  13. I had this issue after a motherboard swap. I use the System Temp plugin. It was still looking for the temp sensor on the old board. I opened the plugin from settings and clicked on detect and then save and it updated it's sensor list.
  14. I know I'm late with a response but I have something to say for anyone else wondering. I see what you're saying but there are problems with you hint hint dev suggestions. (And why it'll never happen) Unraid license is linked to a usb stick. USB Sticks are BANNED once they are removed from a product key. If a license is removed buy a customer then issues are far worse than for a pirate because now they need a usb stick and a license. You can move a license to a usb stick but it's not a clean process because it's a transfer. Pirated versions of many products exist that has always been the case sadly but they all come with risks. It really shouldn't be hard to do a migration though. Copy most of the USB stick minus what ever hack and the license key and buy a key. It should just boot and say please buy a license. I have built multiple servers buy just copying the usb key and then purchasing a new license. You can also copy the cache drive to keep containers and vms. It's quite modular really. I would say that if the customer was able to crack it they would not be paying someone to copy some files to a clean version.
  15. seems fine (i can write a file) in windows but even with in a usb dock on unraid it's read only Makes no sense (it wasn't even the same windows system) I'll just fill them up in windows for now. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come though.
