  1. Not in my case. I did that for every partition and the Format button never came up.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. So, this is weird. Downloaded the docker, and it took some time to configure. Came to the registration page, entered my email, and then I entered the activation code I was sent. I tried one of the scanners, and then it kicked me out, can't remember the error I got, but anyway, I can't log back in. I've restarted the docker a couple times. It keeps giving me invalid login credentials, and I'm not sure how to get back into the docker with the address I used as no matter how I try, it won't send me a "forgot password email." How do I reset the password for the Nessus Essentials account I created? I've tried this page to get a new password, but it's been 30 minute and I haven't received a password reset link: https://login.tenable.com
  5. Hello, What are the implications of the numerous Intel vulnerabilities that have come out the past 2 years? I need to build a new server soon, and am concerned about the Intel security vulnerabilities. I'm using the server mostly for a media and backup server. I have OpenVPN configured, along with Plex and Nextcloud routed through a reverse proxy. How concerned should I be with my current Intel server and any future LGA2011/2011-3 server I build? Thank you, any help would be appreciated.
  6. Thanks for your work. It breathed new life into my server. Feel like LimeTech should have these drivers built into their releases tbh.
  7. I'm hesitant to post this as I don't know if anyone has any suggestions; but I've been agonizing over this for 6 months. To preface this: I have a i7-4930K paired with a Nvidia P400 for Plex transcoding and it works fine for what I'm doing. I'm not so bothered by the performance of the system, however I want ECC memory with enough PCI-E expandability for the future so I've ruled out AM4 or the Intel consumer CPUs. So that leaves Xeon, Epyc, or Threadripper. With Xeons, I'm concerned about all of the security vulnerabilities, there are so many, but I'm not sure if I should be concerned about that with Unraid. Right now I'm exposing Plex and Nextcloud to the internet with a reverse proxy and LetsEncrypt certs. I also have OpenVPN set up. The benefit of Xeon is that there are a ton of older cheaper generations to pick from. So this is the cheapest option, but the security stuff scares me. On Threadripper, only the 1st or 2nd gen are affordable for me, and I've read about NUMA and IOMMU issues with them and Unraid and I don't know if those have been resolved. I'd also have more limited ECC support with those platform. With Epyc, there are affordable 8 and 16 core models, but this is the most expensive of the options. PCI-E 4.0 motherboards are also not on the market (off the shelf), so with this option I'd also have to wait. Does anyone have any suggestions? Threadripper, Epyc, or Xeon?
  8. Try this Plex calculator: https://www.elpamsoft.com/?p=Plex-Hardware-Transcoding On a personal note, you can't beat the value of the P400... I have one on the way that I got from Ebay for $84. If you unlock it with a script it can run 6 1080p transcodes. It has issues with 4K, but just about all GPUs do, so you should be direct playing 4K when possible or have multiple versions of the same file at different resolutions.
  9. Thanks. I have 32GB of RAM, so no issues with the amount. I'll probably be getting 64GB+ later this year when I decide on which generation of CPU. However, shouldn't it transcode in GPU VRAM? I mean, wouldn't it be better to let it transcode there?
  10. Hello, I recently set this up with a Plex pass and my CPU breathed a sigh of relief as my GPU took over transcoding (thanks for making this!) My question is, previous to do this, I had transcode going to /tmp (ie RAM). Should I turn this off or leave it be? Thanks!
  11. I like Unraid because it's flexible. Spare HDD lying around? Slap in it an preclear. The feature I'd like most in Unraid in 2020 is the ability to pass hardware directly to containers (like Nvidia drivers!).
