  1. Thanks! I'll look into that. I think it would be a useful feature to have this in the GUI. Perhaps I'll post it as a suggestion if not already done.
  2. Hi, Is there anyway to define which order your VM's autostart like there is in ESXi? I'd like my domain controller to be up and running before the other Windows VM's start.
  3. No I think there's room for improvement here. I bit worried about the lack of notifications.
  4. Parity is now green as well. Just as green as Toshiba disk on my desk here beside me. Perhaps I should post on the bug-forum instead? I'll stop the array now, and replace the Toshiba with a new disk instead. Let's hope Unraid will let go of it then. Edit: About time!!!
  5. Kudos on commitment for pulling a drive! I've got notifications set to "browser" only while I'm testing, and haven't seen anything except the "errors" popup. Disk still green in the GUI, even though it's sitting here on my desk. I should mention that my paritity is not fully synchronized yet, and was not when I pulled the disk. I'm being cruel I know. I validate enterprise storage installations as part of my job, and am a bit damaged by that probably.
  6. Nothing yet. Except a "*" on the disk temperature and up to 32 errors now. Still green otherwise. By now I ideally should have had a mail in my inbox and be on my way to the store for a replacement. Hmm... Edit: I *love* how you can just paste images from the clipboard into the forum here (Ok, I somehow get double attachments when I do it but it 10 x beats saving the image and uploading it)
  7. Hi all, I'm trying out Unraid as a platform for my new NAS, and pulled a disk to see the impact on the array. I'm bit surprised actually, because I pulled the disk 30 minutes ago, and so far nothing has happened except a popup about twenty or so read errors. You would think completely removing a disk from an array would cause some distress, but it's still green in the interface and I can browse the structure (but not download). What's the expected behavious here really? Because I thought I'd get a big red warning about a dead disk.
  8. Thanks, that improved a bit. But everything else still slows down drastically whenever I'm transferring files. Often can't reach Plex web interface, listing dockers in Unraid just gives me the bouncy wave animation, sometimes the CPU load bars just sit at 0% all of them. On a Ryzen 2600 with 32GB RAM and still far from saturating 1Gb network.
  9. Downgraded to 6.6.7 and things are still slow, but I think I might be just hitting the limit for Unraid write-speeds at around 40MBps. Too bad everything else slows down also. Would be nice having some counters about disk troughput, queue length and such in the GUI.
  10. Think this issue affects me as well. Still trying out Unraid with a trial license, and have been disappointed with the performance. If I'm migrating files from my old NAS to the Unraid, everything else just slows down immensely.
  11. In my case, all disks except cache would be gone. So it won't start the array, but it won't trash anything either?
  12. Hi all, I'm currently testing out Unraid on my to-be home server, and got a bit perplexed when I only got a black screen booting the system. Turns out I haven't read up on the latest in CPU's and the Ryzen 2600 I've got has no integrated GPU. Problem is my mini-ITX only got one PCI-E slot and that's where the disk controller goes. So, I got it going by putting an old graphics card there, and did the basic setup with a couple of disk plugged into the mobo SATA sockets. Now it works without the graphics card in place. Yay! But what will happen if (when) I will need to do something that requires a monitor connected to the computer, and I will have to disconnect the controller/disks by removing the controller card? Will I risk loosing data, or will all be fine once I put the controller back in place?
  13. To end this "pre-sales" post, for me it seems Unraid works much better "on metal" than what I set up virtualized in VMware. I've got both a debian headless and a Win10 VM running without problems, which is about what I can cram into my test-PC. They also run about the same speed as they did stacked on on my vmware host, but that Xeon has a CPU 3x the speed compared to the i5-650 they are on now so it's an improvement. I realize I can't have the dedicated SSD array for VM system disks quite in the same way as I did before, but I hope having this stuff on the cache will be well beyond "good enough" anyway. Unraid has sailed up to top choice for the new home server, but I'll keep tinkering with it for a while more while I've got the trial license just to be sure, and will probably pester you with more questions meanwhile. Thanks!
  14. VM's in general are much slower than on VirtualBox which I also run nested. I've moved my Unraid test installation to a physical machine now, so I can see if it works better. Only one HDD and one SSD in that one, so I cCan't try out all the disk configurations but I'll see if the virtualization part is working better.
