  1. As an aside, 6.8.0 rc5 with this kernel has been rock solid. I'm at 84 days uptime as I type, I use this machine as my daily driver (win10 gaming vm w/ 5700xt) with 10+ docker containers running (plex server and more). I'm still holding off updating until there is a 6.9 release candidate.
  2. What temp readings are you referring to? There are no issues with unraid and hot cpu temps on these boards.
  3. Still waiting for a 6.9 Release Candidate before I update from 6.8 RC5.
  4. You won't be able to pass the 2 usb controllers to different vms since they are in the same iommu group. That is a great use for your extra pcie slot, a usb card. You can pass both internal usb controllers to windows and a pcie usb card to mac, for example. And you don't need multiple nics for what you are describing. By default VMs use a virtual bridge to communicate directly with the physical Ethernet port. Unraid and all your VMs can use the same NIC.
  5. They pulled the navi patch (v1, Limetech never bundled patch v2) because it didn't work or caused more issues with certain hardware configurations. The navi patch itself should do absolutely nothing if you don't have an applicable card, it simply hard codes a special behavior, or quirk, only for a matching pci device. There are tons of these quirks for different pci devices bundled into the linux kernel. Sorry, though, I haven't tested nvidia gpu passthough.
  6. I call bull on that CSR saying they don't have any cases that hold more than 2 drives. The Define R6 is a very popular one that can hold 11 drives (with extra caddies sold by Fractal): https://www.microcenter.com/product/512954/fractal-design-define-r6-usb-c-tempered-glass-eatx-mid-tower-computer-case---black https://www.amazon.com/Fractal-Design-HDD-Drive-Tray/dp/B07J2PLYK7?th=1 It's not my area, by the Nvidia Quadro p2000 is very popular as a dedicated transcoding card. If you only needs are NAS + Plex, a p2000 matched with pretty much any other hardware will do the trick. Keep in mind you will need to use the Unraid Nvidia plugin/builds:
  7. I am all UEFI, no legacy. It might come down to your GPU and which mode(s) it supports, if you are talking about an older card.
  8. I second this. I'm sure there are a LOT of us still on 6.8-RCx for one reason or another. I thought releasing 6.9RC series at the same time as 6.8 stable was a great plan, but it's almost 2 months later.
  9. Dollars to donuts its the nvram file. The only difference between the 2 is the uuid and path to vdisk, yes? Create a new VM. Use Win10 template, change nothing except uncheck start after creation. Edit new VM, go to XML view. Paste everything from your User1 xml except preserve to new uuid including the new nvram path. Change the path to your User2 vdisk. To @testdasi's point, do reboot your system and try booting the problematic vm first. Doesn't sound like the reset bug, though. I've had similar problems and creating a new identical VM always fixes it. Somehow something gets corrupt/bugged and this is the only way I've found to rebuild the nvram. This generally happens when switching from VNC to 5700XT. The key, I believe, is to boot the VM with the 5700XT on the first go.
  10. I can't say for certain. I required "video=efifb:off" even with a single nvidia card on my setup. I use two GPUs now, and only pass my non-primary GPU so it's no longer needed for my setup.
  11. If I follow correctly when you start the win10 vm the monitor output doesn't change from unraid. It sounds like vfio is having trouble grabbing control of the gpu from unraid. Add "video=efifb:off" as a boot flag to your syslinux.cfg. This will disable the framebuffer in unraid making the gpu fully available. This will disable video output after the bootloader screen, so no gui, you will need to launch your vm from the webgui on another machine. If you want to be able to use GUI mode I believe you will need 2 gpus. The gui mode is only recommended for fixing networking issues if you can't access the webgui, so setting efifb:off shouldn't be a loss.
  12. Whats your issue, specifically? Does your MacOS VM work, just looking for a vega reset fix? I've had no luck getting my 5700 XT working (at all, not reset related) in Catalina despite it having native bare metal support. AMD Mac OS is it's own can of worms I haven't tackled (yet).
  13. Good call. <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="<?autov('/plugins/'.$plugin.'/assets/style-'.$display['theme'].'.css')?>"> Solution is to switch to Theme Engine. Dark Theme is included, and all themes use a stock "base theme" to get around all the hard coding. Squid, is there a process to deprecate this plugin? I would like to encourage people to migrate to Theme Engine.
  14. That's an unassigned.devices error, looks like they are adding custom css for this theme but not quite there.
  15. You're missing the point. If LimeTech focused all their efforts on only "core" functions that 100% of users would use, they are never going to draw in more users and grow the userbase. Supporting hardware encoding natively, without being dependent on third-party builds, is user friendly for a very popular use case and would drive license sales.
  16. I don't think the user base would be 1/5 the size without VMs, docker, etc. LimeTech wouldn't have gotten my money if it wasn't for those features. So look at is as time well spent fundraising for the NAS functions
  17. You need to actually read the first post in this thread. You need to make sure your unraid usb is on the 0b:00.3 USB controller, and the occulus stuff is NOT on that controller. Then you need to pass through 06:00.0, 06:00.1, and 06:00.3. This can all be done very easily with the vfio-pci config plugin. Do not attempt to do anything else until you understand what you are doing.
  18. This will happen if you don't read and stub the usb controller being used by unraid. Put your unraid usb in another computer and delete the file config/vfio-pci.cfg and your computer will "work" again. I would recommend doing your due diligence and read a whole lot more before proceeding.
  19. Onboard audio now works on 6.8.0-rc5 with this kernel:
  20. I created the "VFIO-PCI Config" plugin for this. Search for it on Community Applications.
  21. You can not follow Spaceinvader One's tutorial, if you stub by pci id you will stub all 3 usb controllers including the one unraid is using. You need to stub by address. I would shamelessly recommend the "VFIO-PCI Config" plugin on Community Applications to verify which controller your unraid usb is on and to build your vfio-pci.cfg file.
  22. Thanks for the update. I was just going to post an update and eat some crow, because my single-core benchmarks are similar to yours: I think 94% of bare metal performance is about what is expected, and that's the same as you posted in your original post. I'm very curious, with your changes, did that improve your cpu-z benchmark figure? I did play some gta5 and didn't see any slowdowns (playing >120fps at 1440p on 144hz freesync monitor). The game sounds notoriously cpu-bound. I tried doing some benchmarks but it seems ALL over the place. Especially for min fps. Some runs I would get 9 min fps... on bare metal. That doesn't translate on screen or in gameplay, I think it's literally the first few frames when the pass first starts. For my VM I am passing 10c/20t, so that might be giving me the edge.
