  1. I've been following the official thread, and I believe the short answer is no. I could be wrong.
  2. Just wondering/asking (I've been following these issues): Should this be in the release notes of a new version on GitHub for better visibility? I agree, this seems like a good way forward.
  3. Update: Finally upgraded my backup Unraid using my spare Ryzen parts, as planned. Purchased and installed an ASUS TUF GAMING X570-PRO (WI-FI) motherboard, upgraded BIOS to latest v3405. Looks like the temp monitors don't work for some reason on this board, even though it seems to use the same sensors, and is almost identical to the ASUS TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI) in my primary Unraid. Even detects the same drivers, but seems unable to detect any of the sensors.
  4. The plugin is broken and the maintainer has only in the last week communicated anything after a year of silence. My advice is to either avoid completely or use the script version at your own risk.
  5. I'm interested to find out more about this, I've tried researching, and I've tried starting a thread to find out more, but is there a way to "reclaim" the passthrough GP back to the unraid UI? Is this script part of the method of doing so?
  6. I'm not sure if this has been mentioned here, I don't want to assume I'm the first... But I'd really love to see better support for managing VM-passthrough devices natively in Unraid, like GPU passthrough and PCIe device management. I don't mean some bespoke configuration/profiles for particular hardware, what I mean is that I would appreciate if the VM config UI could be updated to set PCIe attributes like multifunction, slot, bus, etc... for GPUs, PCIe devices, or USB controllers (Which are just PCIe devices of course). We can set a BIOS file for a GPU, but most of th
  7. That's interesting, and thanks for the pointer. Funny, I was poking around and literally just stumbled upon the video and script you mentioned, then saw you mentioning it. Video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWn6OCWl63o And the github for the dump script: https://github.com/SpaceinvaderOne/Dump_GPU_vBIOS I thought maybe to mess around with this and see, but my prying eyes did see in the video that SpaceInvaderOne has an "unlock nvidia" script: @SpaceInvaderOne maybe I'm making an assumption here, but is this sc
  8. Hi everyone, I've got a working single-GPU passthrough configuration, and I sometimes switch between VMs without issue by stopping the first VM and starting another with a valid config and BIOS. I've been trying to find out how I can regain control of the GPU back to the host Unraid system. I can't seem to find anything in the forum, but maybe I'm using the wrong search terms or something. Essentially, after stopping a passthrough VM, I'm trying to have unraid regain control of the GPU output. Does anyone know how this is achieved?
  9. Hi @egtrev I cant tell what you're doing wrong exactly, but this sounds similar to the issues I experienced, and maybe your GPU BIOS is not working or invalid somehow. When I see nvidia passthrough issues (I made AMD work as well but nvidia seems a bit more stubborn), I usually try to advise the method I used. I upgraded my passthrough 1080Ti to a 3090 using the method by SpaceInvaderOne but I made a guide here: I made my 3090 work using the exact same method, and I'm using it right now, rock solid, multiple restarts, everything working. I'd advi
  10. @LoneTraveler can you mention what exact 3090 model you're using? I can't find it anywhere in this thread.
  11. An update for this thread. I upgraded my system from the "EVGA 1080Ti FTW3 Gaming" to a "Gigabyte RTX3090 Turbo 24G" over this past weekend. Using these instructions in this thread everything worked fine. I downloaded a new bios from techpowerup and hex-edited it, confirmed all the hostdev addresses and everything worked. I hope this helps other people, post a reply if you found this useful.
  12. Hey @LoneTraveler I just upgraded my passthrough 1080Ti to a 3090 this past weekend. I used the method by SpaceInvaderOne but I made a guide here: I made my 3090 work using the exact same method, and I'm using it right now, rock solid, multiple restarts, everything working. I'd advise taking a look at the HOWTO I wrote above, try the instructions precisely, and let me know if it helped you.
  13. 50 hours? Yikes. I couldn't be happy with that, and this is also the reason I stuck with 8TB drives max until (unlikely, for many reasons) consumer SATA gets faster then 600MB/sec. My dual 8TB rebuild ran about 16hours in the end, but I think would have been much faster if the system wasn't in active normal use. Anyway, you haven't indicated any actual numbers on what you're doing, as I have, so there's no way to make any real conclusion about what is happening with your system. My backup Unraid server is also an aging system on PCIE2.0, that I'm planning to soon decommission,
  14. Hi @jbartlett and thanks for making this tool. I've gained a lot of insight into how my drives are performing. However, I'm still not sure of your question regarding the "Max allowed size", I think you mean the threshold of measured throughput, but I don't know where I can see or verify this. It didn't seem to be increasing above 45MB. I also tried running the same test with "Disable Speed Gap detection" enabled, and it still would not finish the test. So once the parity rebuild finished, looks like it was a little faster overall, despite the system being under normal loa
