  1. Hey guys, I upgraded my server to an i9-9900k and a RTX 2080. I want to passthrough the GPU to a Windows VM. Now it actually worked, only issue is that I cannot seem to play any video, though the latest drivers are installed. Do I need to add a vbios to make it work? I didn't fully get if that is always mandatory and it worked for me without it anyway. Games also play fine, its just videos like youtube dont seem to work. Or do I only need a vbios if let's say my CPU wouldnt have an integrated GPU and therefore I would passthrough my main gpu? Best, Lukas
  2. So this would be the build I have in mind: Case: be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 Rev. 2 CPU: Intel i9-9900k CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock PRO 4 Mainboard: Asus Prime Z390-A RAM: G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB (2x 8192MB) DDR4-3200 DIMM CL16-18-18-38 [Probably adding this again, to get to 32 GB) SSD: Samsung SSD 970 PRO 512GB (M.2) for the VMS PSU: 650 Watt be quiet! Dark Power Pro 11 GPU: ASUS GeForce® RTX 2080 ROG Strix Gaming OC 8GB Storage would be my 5x4TB (1 Parity) plus 2x120GB SSD for the Cache Would this work? How is the passthrough with this? I imagine I could use the iGPU for Emby then and just use the GPU for my gaming VM. Best, Lukas
  3. Hey guys, I hope you can help me with my decision on where to go. I recently moved to a new flat with my gf and actually planned on using my Dell T20 as a media server with a IBM Serveraid to have more Drives. We were lucky with the new flat and actually got a spare room, which means I can reactivate my sim racing rig again. I still have a quite old PC for that, therefore I am now in the pickle of either getting a new PC solely for gaming and in the same room, have the Server running (Which I find a bit unneccessary) or get a new PC, maybe capable of going with a hybrid via a VM. Therefore my needs would be the following as Dockers: - Emby (Would ideally like to use HW transcoding, but not much needed, only for up to 5 clients max.), With Sonarr, Radarr, Heimdall, Nginx Proxy Server (Only used to serve my dockers via a local custom domain with SSL) and a NZB Downloader, also tvheadend for my TV Server (Using a PCIE TV Card) As a Virtual Machine I would need the following: - HassIO - A Office WIN 10 (very occasional, if I have to work from Home, nothing huge, just a bit Excel and stuff) -> Will never be run at the same time as the Gaming VM - A Gaming VM (Only used occassionaly in the evenings and on the weekend for racing games, such as rFactor 2, iRacing, AC), sometimes a bit CS:GO, but that should be mainly it I haven't been building PCs for a long time, therefore I am a bit out of what would be good for a power consumption and at the same time be able to produce good quality gaming experience on the named games. I still have a Silencio 650 Pure as my case, which I would like to use, it can hold ATX or MicroATX mainboards and up to 7 Drives, with potentially even more, since it has 3 525 bays. Budget wise I am quite open, as I can get at least a few bucks for my old parts. I would say I'd aim for about EUR 1500-2000. But obviously cheaper is always welcome, if it's enough for my needs. With the latest AMD Ryzen cards, I would be quite intrigued, since they seem to have quite some cores, which I guess would help to divide them over the VMs, also they seem to be quite a bit lwoer power. Then again, there are also these issues with AMD on unraid, from what I have read, so I think that would be the first question, would you say I should go Intel or AMD? Which other parts would you recommend for my build, like what RAM should it at least have, how many SSDs, and can you recommend specific parts? Help would be greatly appreciated. Best, Lukas
  4. Hey guys, I got newly registered here in the forum, but I have been using unRAID for quite some time and love all the updates it gets. Now that I moved in with my gf I wanted to clean up my setup a bit and make it nice and simple. To give you an overview: I have an ASUS Router with the Merlin firmware installed. I use the VPN client option on the router to secure most of my devices automatically (A few exceptions, like my XBOX and my pc, as they sometimes use Netflix and it doesn't work via the VPN, also the VPN doesn't support Port forwarding). I also use the DDNS option from the router itself. On my unRAID I have the following dockers installed: Sonarr, Radarr, Emby, Sabnzbd Also I have a VM with Hassio running. I am using the br0 option and gave each docker container an individual IP. This way I also disabled the VPN for Emby and use port forwarding so I can access it remotely (Only Emby though and only via SSL [Certificate via the router]) First of all, I was wondering what you guys would suggest of Remote Access to Emby, if I should use a VPN (Though implementing this would require help aswell) or if it's okay to use port forwarding just for this one service (I changed the External Port aswell, from the standard one), as I really don't need to remote access anything else? Here is what I imagined thoughas my plan: Locally I would like to simplify reaching each of the containers just by using: sonarr.local (Or something similar), preferrably using HTTPS (Does it make sense and is it possible) though. Remotely as I said only access available to Emby and this through my own domain via subdomain: emby.mydomain.de (Again only per HTTPS). I would like to keep the VPN as it is and use it for most of my internet and just allow certain devices/services non-VPN access. If I give unraid a pass there, would it make it attackable via the internet, despite no ports open? Are these ideas possible, if so, what would you recommend? I have read a bit here, but somehow I never really found the exact issue I am facing (Unless I was just blind ) Last but not least I was wondering about general unRAID security. I used Tips and Tweaks and the recommended plugins. I disabled Telnet and FTP and I am just trying to clean up my SMB shares a bit and allow most dockers only user access and not root. I often read that I should only give SMB read-access, my question is, doesn't Emby e.g. need write access? I don't think others need it, but Emby transfers the files to the right folder, creates it and all, so I would assume i need it there. Anything else I could improve on? Best and sorry for the lengthy post and lot of questions, but thanks in advance luke
