  1. So, maybe for a week port forwarding on Switzerland wasn't working, but yesterday it started working again and I have an IP address.
  2. Last week I had a bit of a miniature crisis with my Unraid server that required me to rebuild the USB boot device that Unraid uses. Fortunately all I had to do was pull up a backup to find the disk assignments, but it was scary to say the least. The background is that I have a 1TB SSD that is SMB shared with the Unassigned Devices plugin. On this drive is a Steam library. So there I was playing a Steam game over a 10GBe connection, and the gaming computer crashed. No big deal right? Wrong. I got the gaming computer back up and then I noticed odd behavior on the Unraid server. Parts of the web UI wouldn't load. So I did what I thought was reasonable. I restarted the Unraid server. Then I spent the next hour trying to get back into the Unraid GUI. Remote connections wouldn't work over web browsers that were working just hours before (Firefox, Chrome, Chroium Edge). The error received was "Connection refused." However, the server IP address could be pinged successfully. Even when booted into GUI mode or GUI Safe Mode (no plugins), the web interface remained inaccessible with the "Connection refused" error. So, I shut down the server, plugged in the thumb drive to the gaming computer, and Windows Explorer was slow/crashing with that thumb drive plugged in, and I actually had to plug it into a Mac just to format it exFat so that I could begin the process of re-installing Unraid on the thumb drive. Has anyone seen anything like this happen? Future steps: Would this not occur if the Steam library was part of the array and/or cache and using the built-in Unraid shares method? TLDR: Client computer crashed while connected to a SMB share with games on it, requiring that Unraid USB stick be completely reformatted and Unraid re-installed.
  3. So, I think I've encountered an issue with the Lancache-bundle. If the computer I download Steam games on (and presumably other things) is connected to Private Internet Access VPN, then the Lancache doesn't seem to work. It looks like Lancache gets the files in the Cache folder even with the VPN, but when downloading again it doesn't get the files from the cache. I monitored Terminal (docker container stats), and it doesn't work with the VPN active, but it works with out the VPN active. With the VPN off, CPU cycles on Lancache-bundle increase as well as IO, so it's working with the VPN off.
  4. So an update. Ubuntu 19.10 is in the same boat as the most recent versions of Fedora and Debian.
  5. Here's what it looks like in Ubuntu (18.04 LTS):
  6. Hello. I'm having difficulty connecting to Unraid VMs with Virt-Manager as per the instructions in this video from spaceinvaderone. I've linked to the time that the issue appears where you select the "method" to use to connect. What I've noticed is that recent versions of Virt-Manager no longer allow you to select the method, so you have no dropdown menu to select TCP as the method. Not sure why, but neither Debian or Fedora versions of Virt-Manager allow you to select the method any longer. Ubuntu still does, but it's only a matter of time before that goes away I expect. I'm mostly interested in using it to do snapshots, but this is preventing me from doing that. How are people doing this now on more recent versions of Virt Manager? Thanks! Example image here:
  7. Yes, I know. I've had issues with SATA controllers supporting TRIM so I wanted to be sure. Does NVMe have its own controller on the drive itself that does these operations?
  8. Hello. I have added a couple of NVMe drives (970 EVOs) and I want to check to make sure they support trim on my configuration. Is there a similar command to "hdparm -I /dev/UID | grep TRIM" for NVMe drives? The normal command works on SATA SSDs but not on NVMe as I get a "HDIO_DRIVE_CMD(identify) failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device" error when running the command against the NVMe drives. Thanks!
  9. It was my only choice, as the GUI didn't work. I know enough about command line to not select the wrong disk. Unless you have another solution that didn't involve the GUI, I don't think that your solution is helpful because it would have meant the drive was useless to me (or anyone else for that matter), as again, the GUI didn't work.
  10. Not in my case. I did that for every partition and the Format button never came up.
  11. Just found the command. Open terminal > type: wipefs -af /dev/### (where ### is the ID of the drive as it appears in the GUI. The format button then appears.
  12. Hello. I just added a 500GB SATA SSD to UD, and cannot format it. I turned Destructive mode on, and the only button available is Mount. It does successfully mount, but I can't seem to format it as the Format button never shows up. I initially tried Preclearing it (I knew I should try that with SSDs, but I couldn't think of anything else to try). I then thought it was because it has a bunch of Proxmox partitions on it, so I tried deleting those. That didn't work, and after I did that it wouldn't even mount. So then I pulled it from the server and hooked it up to another machine and formatted it NTFS, and that's where I'm at now. I'd like to format it as XFS, but can't figure out how to do that. It's an older generation drive, that supports TRIM, but not "Deterministic read" if that helps. Any help would be appreciated.
