  1. Upgraded from RC8, no issues. Big thanks to the entire Unraid team, community developers, and beta testers.
  2. Here's a DIY option.
  3. SOLD I have a used 3TB Hitachi Deskstar 7K3000 available if anyone's interested. I am upgrading to 8TB drives and no longer have a need for it. $25 shipped in the USA
  4. 15 bay tower server for sale $750 including shipping in the continental US. Built new in May 2012 this was my main server until Nov 2017. Nice setup just too big for my needs. I recently downsized to a smaller server (Node 304).

  5. Ok, good to know. Like I said, I never got to use it for unraid, ended up using M1015 back then. Thanks
  6. Would you be interested in a Supermicro AOC-SASLP-MV8 with cables and brackets for $75.00 US? I bought it few years ago for planned build, but never used it.
  7. Does transcoding to ram still work? I am using the Official Plex Docker. I'm asking because the Real Docker FAQ states "Note: Since about Plex version 0.9.14, transcoding to RAM does not work. Recommend avoiding this option."
  8. I have this board (C236 WSI P2.10) and did not have any issues at all upgrading from 6.4.1 to 6.50. After reading the comments here, I got curious and hooked up a monitor to my server to check the boot settings. I am booting in "legacy" mode (non-EFI boot and EFI- folder on flash drive) I tried changing only the boot mode to UEFI (without renaming EFI- folder) and of course it failed to boot, so I changed it back. Should I update the bios and make the changes to UEFI boot mode or since everything is working fine could I just leave it alone?
  9. Thank you both for the replies, especially the link frank1940 provided on the benefits of single vs dual parity. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  10. Hello, I just upgraded to 6.4.1 and would like to upgrade to dual parity, larger data drives and cache pool. I only have room for 6 HDD and 2 SSD. Currently I have: 1 x 3TB Parity drive 5 x 3TB Data drives (disk 1 is currently empty as it is failing) 1 x SSD cache drive I would like to upgrade to: 2 x Parity drives (6TB or greater) 4 x Data drives (6TB or greater) 2 x SSD Cache pool Should I upgrade single parity to a larger drive first before removing the failing drive? Should I remove the failing drive, reassign the others and rebuild parity before upgrading to a larger parity drive? Or could I remove the failing drive, reassign the others and upgrade to larger dual parity drives all at the same time?
  11. I have an AZZA Helios 910 if you're interested. Right now it's a complete server, but no longer in use. I can part it out and sell you the case. It has 9 external 5.25" drive bays (tabs have been flattened to accommodate drive cages). solid side panels (no side fans). 140mm top fan 120mm rear fan
  12. Here's a picture of the board. I think it has an Intel Pentium Dual Core E2140, but I haven't pulled the fan off to check. I have the manual, I/O plate and driver disc.
  13. I'll donate one, ECS GF7050VT-M with processor, fan, 4 gb Patriot ram. Forgot what processor it has I've had it so long. I can send pics tomorrow, if you want It its yours. Just send me your address. Mark
