  2. 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
  3. 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).

  4. Ok, good to know. Like I said, I never got to use it for unraid, ended up using M1015 back then. Thanks
  5. 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.
  6. 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."
  7. 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?
  8. 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
  9. 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?
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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

    Hello, Is there a way to resize the noVNC window to fit the display? When I connect to a Windows 8.1 vm using noVNC in Unraid 6 B15 I cannot see the entire desktop without scrolling left /right and top/bottom. When I connect using remote desktop, I can see the entire desktop without having to scroll. I get the same result when using noVNC with an Ubuntu 15.04 vm. Is this normal for noVNC? This is the first time I have used it.
  14. Can you use rsync? http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=35544.msg331050#msg331050
  15. Looking to trade my tower setup for a rack mount setup.

    AmEx Experience

    Another thumbs up for Amex! And in case you haven't done this already, I recommend you set up text/email alerts for "card not present" transactions. I have these alerts set up for my Chase Visa also.
  17. Sorry, i misread your post. This is for mp3 files.
  18. Have you tried MediaMonkey? http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.php/WebHelp:Clean_Your_Tags/4.0
  19. None currently. Waiting for an "official" APCUPS plugin for unRAID 6. When I was on v5, I ran SAB/CP/SB/PMS plugins but I am moving those over to a VM in v6
  20. I currently have 1 Parity, 5 Data, 1 SSD Cache, expandable up to 18 drives (15-3.5" + 3-2.5")
  21. 16GB, this is the same hardware I ran ESXi on previously. Now running 6.0-b5a.
  22. Using SSD cache drive only for XEN VM's at the moment.
  23. I'm in the same position, I don't know Arch at all. However, I think I will try learn Arch after re-reading this thread again. This post sums it up well. http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=31687.msg288769#msg288769
