  1. I don't see a dropdown for vdisk capacity in my unraid gui like in the video. What am I doing wrong?
  2. I currently sync a cache drive folder with an array folder using rsync. Is there a way to do this with a docker with a graphical interface? Thanks
  3. I have some duplicati questions as I migrate from crashplan. 1. I see that some people use an ftp plugin with duplicati. What is the reason to use an ftp plugin on unraid? I just pointed the folder path in client duplicati install to unraid local ip\disk\folder. Is there a downside to this? 2. What file transfer speeds can one expect? For example, how long should it take to backup and recover 1 terabyte of data over gigabit lan? Is network performance or write speed the bottleneck for speed? 3. I assume that one only needs the duplicati docker if backing up the unraid server to the cloud. What cloud services have people used? 4. Finally, anyone find any other good options other than duplicati for backing up a bunch of windows machines to unraid? Does anyone just use windows backup? Thanks for the help
  4. I cannot create a new vm with a different MAC or change it on the vm that I have. You get the error... XML error: expected unicast mac address, found multicast I am new at this and don't know the difference between unicast and multicast. Will research a bit. Thanks
  5. No. I have the same issue. I tried to change the redhat network adapter Mac address but that does not seem to change the mac address that windows uses. Is there a way to change the vm mac address? I tried to edit xml and got warnings about using multicast address. Thanks
  6. steve 1977 In terms of VM tab not showing up, you do not have to enable user shares. You just have to have libvirt.img in a path. If you enter something like below in VM settings, the file will be automatically created. /mnt/cache/libvirt.img See this post if you want more details. https://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=47675.0
  7. Ha I followed the great guide. My mistake was connecting via tightVNC to unraid server IP and not the virtual machine IP. Fairly idiotic I know. Thanks
  8. Great guide. My only problem is that when connecting to the osx guest from windows 10 machine with vnc there is a bad mouse offset and the host cursor is not in sync with the guest cursor. I tried tightvnc and same behavior. Any suggetions? <domain type='kvm' xmlns:qemu='http://libvirt.org/schemas/domain/qemu/1.0'> <name>OSX-El-Capitan-10.11-VNC</name> <uuid>0ba39646-7ba1-4d41-9602-e2968b2fe36d</uuid> <metadata> <type>None</type> </metadata> <memory unit='KiB'>4194304</memory> <currentMemory unit='KiB'>4194304</currentMemory> <vcpu placement='static'>2</vcpu> <cputune> <vcpupin vcpu='0' cpuset='1'/> <vcpupin vcpu='1' cpuset='2'/> </cputune> <resource> <partition>/machine</partition> </resource> <os> <type arch='x86_64' machine='pc-q35-2.3'>hvm</type> <kernel>/mnt/cache/OSX Virtual Machine/enoch_rev2795_boot</kernel> <boot dev='hd'/> <bootmenu enable='yes'/> </os> <features> <acpi/> </features> <cpu mode='custom' match='exact'> <model fallback='allow'>core2duo</model> </cpu> <clock offset='utc'/> <on_poweroff>destroy</on_poweroff> <on_reboot>restart</on_reboot> <on_crash>destroy</on_crash> <devices> <emulator>/usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64</emulator> <disk type='file' device='disk'> <driver name='qemu' type='raw'/> <source file='/mnt/cache/OSX Virtual Machine/ElCapitan.img'/> <target dev='hda' bus='sata'/> <address type='drive' controller='0' bus='0' target='0' unit='0'/> </disk> <controller type='usb' index='0'> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x02' slot='0x01' function='0x0'/> </controller> <controller type='sata' index='0'> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x1f' function='0x2'/> </controller> <controller type='pci' index='0' model='pcie-root'/> <controller type='pci' index='1' model='dmi-to-pci-bridge'> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x1e' function='0x0'/> </controller> <controller type='pci' index='2' model='pci-bridge'> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x01' slot='0x01' function='0x0'/> </controller> <interface type='bridge'> <mac address='52:54:00:00:20:30'/> <source bridge='br0'/> <model type='e1000-82545em'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x02' slot='0x03' function='0x0'/> </interface> <input type='mouse' bus='ps2'/> <input type='keyboard' bus='ps2'/> <graphics type='vnc' port='-1' autoport='yes' websocket='-1' listen='' keymap='en-us'> <listen type='address' address=''/> </graphics> <video> <model type='vmvga' vram='16384' heads='1'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x01' function='0x0'/> </video> <memballoon model='none'/> </devices> <seclabel type='none' model='none'/> <qemu:commandline> <qemu:arg value='-device'/> <qemu:arg value='usb-kbd'/> <qemu:arg value='-device'/> <qemu:arg value='usb-mouse'/> <qemu:arg value='-device'/> <qemu:arg value='isa-applesmc,osk=ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc'/> <qemu:arg value='-smbios'/> <qemu:arg value='type=2'/> </qemu:commandline> </domain>
  9. Per the upgrade instructions for 6.2, I want to back up my virtual machines. This is probably a stupid question but what is the best way to do this. Do I just copy the xml file to notepad and save it or is there more to it than this? Thanks
  10. Tried to update docker and my docker disappeared. Now when I try to reinstall I get the following. Running unraid 6.1.9 My / config file is on /mnt/cache/App Data/Crashplan/. /backup is on one of my disks. Not sure what I am doing wrong. Any help appreciated.
  11. For follow up, I discovered my issue by reading a different thread (see below). Setting the bios to onboard let the VM use the PCIE as described. This is amazing!
  12. Thanks. I think I understand. Just for clarification... So if I start a VM (via the unraid web interface) and it has passed through local graphics, this is what will appear on a monitor plugged into the passed through graphics card?
  13. Yes. I am unsure how to access the vm from the local monitor/keyboard connected to the unraid server. The VM has been created and is running. Can you turn VM's off and switch vm's etc. Thanks
  14. I am new to the vm world. I have a windows 10 VM working great. I get to it from windows remote. I am uncertain how to start it from the actual local unraid server console? One other question: Do most run antivirus software on the VM? Thanks
