  1. Okay, thanks for the explanation
  2. Hello, So yesterday I created a share with the fill method most free, to spread the data across the drives more evenly as they are read frequently. What occurred next was that it started to report way higher usage than expected. I have attached a picture of the current array report, notice the "Used" amount, currently 8.80> GB, but any shares report barely used. Same for the base OS. Build log: Array Shares OS
  3. Hello, The motherboard is unable to support up to 128 GB ECC memory, the board lights up in the DRAM POST LED, when using CT32GRFD4266.36FJ1 x2 or total of 64 GB. Second point; I tried to run the motherboard without GPU, or even just without a monitor. Both result in lit VGA LED and no boot... Avoid this board....
  4. Hello, So the dual 1Gbit nics is not supported? If possible, would you be able to help here?
  5. Hello, Just updated the build to get a new motherboard, which supports 3 full size PCI cards, which I think will result in a longer lasting build with support for multiple graphics cards and still accommodate my raid card. This will allow 1 GPU for transcoding, potentially one for VM and one slot for raid card. I also added a larger processor, the 3700X along with 64 GB memory. As people at work told me it will be hard on RAM to run the Windows VM's as they eat all the ram during boot. Update: See build first post.
  6. Hi, Looking at the specs here, https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/TUF-GAMING-X570-PLUS/specifications/ It does appear to specify "ECC Memory (ECC mode) support varies by CPU." and the Ryzen 5 processor should also support it. Heard somewhere that all Ryzen supports it, to be confirmed. I did consider getting a SATA card instead, specifically LSI MegaRAID SAS 9341-8i with two SFF-8643 cables to support up to 8 drives. I would be starting with 6, but I hear that the raid controller will manage the transfers better and allow the motherboard to last longer. Could also add a few 1 TB SSD's instead of NVME, tbd. Thanks for your comment
  7. Hello, Please bare in mind that this is my first system, and I am new to the whole storage thing. Some history, I had a FreeNAS machine running, but somehow kept getting disk errors on the setup. I ended up scrapping it and using a cloud provider instead, dropbox for my projects etc. However recently I ran out of storage, I refuse to pay, and I store a decent amount of RAW photos as well. (26 MB each + export), media (Local rips of my DVD and BluRay collection), not so much Music but useful too. Purpose for build Allow me to easily backup my computer, MacBook and more. Allow for remote backups of company data, like database servers, webserver, etc. (SQL Done) Rsync for files and a dedicated mysqldump. Daily cronjobs. https://www.backuphowto.info/how-backup-mysql-database-automatically-linux-users Allow me to record video from Ubiquiti (Done) Controller: https://hub.docker.com/r/linuxserver/unifi-controller Video: https://hub.docker.com/r/pducharme/unifi-video-controller/ Provide network storage for Media, and allow access to Plex + GPU Transcoder. (Done) Run a Remote Workstation + VPN to allow me to always access my local network. Run OwnCloud and Git for my projects, finances etc. (Done) Run a VM for my home automation software. https://www.openhab.org/ https://mosquitto.org/ With connected devices using the ESP8266 or RPI where more processing is required. https://community.openhab.org/t/oh2-control-esp8266-relay-using-mqtt-eventbus/18127 Run a VM for my websites, mainly for development purposes. Possibly email server and Active Directory for managing my house, PXE etc. Those are a few of the uses I found for my old server, but have all been stored locally on my PC since then, plus a few VMs from hosting providers. Hardware For this build I have decided on the following, I am aware that its not server grade but the traffic to the server will be very low. Any VM with large I/O will be held in the cache and backed up to main array over night. Update: CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X RAM: Crucial DDR4 64 GB ECC MOBO: ASUS PRO WS X570-ACE CACHE: 2x Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1 TB ARRAY: 6x Seagate IronWolf 8 TB GPU: Nvidia P2000 SATA Card: LSI MegaRAID SAS 9341-8i I know that Ryzen 3000 series is very new, reason for my post here. I wanna check and make sure that the system I get is fully supported, so if anyone has any experiences using Ryzen and UnRaid please speak up Thanks for reading!
