  1. Ok thanks for the suggestion. I'll try to use the on board sata ports. If there are no issues I will still have an extra pcie slot to use in the future. David
  2. Hi, I'm building a new Unraid Server with a Asrock X570M and a AMD 3900X. The motherboard has 8 SATA ports. I plan to use 4 HDD and 2 SSD for cache. Awhile ago I purchased a HP H220 6Gbs SAS PCI-E 3.0 HBA LSI 9207-8i P20 Controller for another server but didn't end up using it? Would it be a good idea to use the controller or are the onboard SATA ports good enough. I'm not sure who makes the onboard SATA controller or is there a general advantage to use the controller either way. Any help will greatly be appreciated. Thanks! David
  3. Hi, I'm building a new Unraid Server. I can't decide between the AMD 2700X or 3600X. I plan to run about 2 or 3 VMs and 2 or 3 Docker containers. My storage will be two 500GB SSD for Cache and four 8TB Red Drives. Do you what the better CPU for this setup? Thanks. David
  4. Hi, I purchased two 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express PCI-E Network Controller with the Realtek RT8125 Chipset. I installed one in my desktop and the Uraid box. Both my OS and Unraid recognizes the networks adapters. The first network on my Unraid is connected to my router on the motherboard. I am able to connect to webpage with the usually IP. For the new 2.5 Gbe NICs I set my Unraid to and my desktop to Both have sub mask set to 24. When I open Wireshark I see the desktop 2.5 Gbe NIC trying to ping the Unraid box but it's not getting a response. Is there something else I have to setup? The two new network cards are connected directly to each other without a router or switch. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I attached screenshots of all the settings. Thanks! David
  5. Ok I'll check the plugin out. Thanks!
  6. Hi, is it possible to configure a VM on Unraid to delay auto-start. For example, start the VM 5 minutes after boot up? Thanks! David
  7. Sorry for the new responding sooner. Thanks for the suggestion!
  8. Hi, I have 3x10 Red HDDs (one's for parity) and 2x500GB SSD for cache. Whenever the SSD cache is full I get a disk full error message when copying over to a shared folder on the server. Is there anyway to set Unraid to copy directly to the HHDs if the cache is filled automatically instead of waiting for the mover to run? Running version 6.7.2. Thanks! David
  9. Hi, I am having an issue passing my non-primary video card to a Windows VM. I have a NVidia GT710 as my primary display in the top PCIe slot of my motherboard and an AMD RX 580 in the third slot. After installing Windows 10, I install the AMD drivers. After the setup Windows detects and sees the AMD card however Windows will not start after reboot if I have the AMD as the primary video card. I am unable to ping the VM or RDP (after I initially enable it) into the VM. When I have VNC enabled, I get a 'waiting on other display or user' error and will also not boot. I tried reversing the video cards and get similar results. I also tried adding the GPU BIOS but no luck. If someone could tell me what I'm doing wrong, I would be greatly appreciative. Thanks! David
  10. Thanks for the reply. I'm still trying to figure out the GPU pass through settings. I don't really know much about transcoding so I was just relying on the reviews and YouTube videos.
  11. I had initially hoped to use my RX 580 to pass through to a VM in with Plex in Unraid for transcoding. Is RX 580 really as bad at transcoding as people say? If so, I might cut my losses and get a GTX 1660 TI or maybe an RTX 2060 depending on what sales they have a Microcenter. I plan to trans code one maybe two videos at one time. Mostly from 4k to 1080p. I have an ASROCK 580M with 2700X. I plan on upgrading to an R9 3900 or R9 3950 once the prices come done. I think could get about $80 for the RX 580 on eBay, so it's not even worth selling. I assume either way I would get a new card in a year or so. If anyone has any suggestion if I should stick with RX 580 or cut my loss and get an NVIDIA card would be great. Thanks! David
  12. Thanks for the reply and information. I have a total of 4x10tb drives. If I want to use the 4 drive as a backup should I add to unraid as an unassigned drive and use or write a script to transfer important data over? Thanks again! David
  13. Hi, I have four 10GB WDC Red HDDs. Is it overkill to have two parity drives for just four drives? I don't think I would need more than 20TB of space. I will also be using two 500GB SSDs for cache. Thanks! David
  14. Well I'm an idiot 🙂 I didn't see the RX580 under PCI devices but it was listed in the drop-down of the Graphics Card setting. Thanks again for the help!
