  1. VM Backup (Beta) plugin app by JTok was causing the bottom 2 error messages for me, using unRAID v6.8.3. After uninstalling and rebooting, the errors are gone. More info about these errors can be read in the following Issue thread on the author's GitHub page, with comments and initial troubleshooting of cause: https://github.com/JTok/unraid.vmbackup/issues/18 Also, this linked post of the following thread for other details:
  2. Thank you for this. I've got several old systems for homelab use now that I'll be able to test this on later today.
  3. I'm still looking to further refine it, but the following will return the filepath of any files on /mnt/cache/isos over 1M that have a sparseness value over 0.1 (or ratio of 10 to 1): find "/mnt/cache/isos" -depth -size +1M -printf '%S:%p\0' | awk -v RS='\0' -F : '$1 > 0.1 {sub(/^[^:]*:/, ""); print}' Adjusted from the example here: https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/86446 This takes into account floating point values like 3.8147e-06 returned by %S on very tiny files. If the pipe to awk is an issue, there might be ways around it, which I'm about to look into.
  4. Is it possible to direct mover to transfer sparse files without expanding them to full size onto the destination disk? If it's something mover just doesn't support yet, maybe an alternative could be a rule to ignore files if their sparseness value is (for e.g.) less than 0.1 or a rule that effectively avoids a 10GB file becoming a 200GB file. It looks like Find has a %S directive for showing a file's sparseness: https://www.gnu.org/software/findutils/manual/html_mono/find.html#Size-Directives I've been looking into doing this myself on my own system as

  6. Over the last few days, I've put 3 PCs together for Rosetta@home CPU work, using old parts I'd kept from upgrading systems for family members over the years. They're all working surprisingly well, which I hoped for but you never know what to expect with old parts. Now that our Unraid server has become as important a household item as Wi-Fi, I'd been wanting to setup a proper HomeLab for myself to test stuff on. For these 3 PCs, I've gone with using XCP-ng (Xen Hypervisor) on each and Xen Orchestra for central management, plus a mix of Windows / Linux VMs to see how BOINC perform
  7. Wondering if anyone is using the Disable Security Mitigations plugin and seeing improved times for CPU based work units?
  8. Just saw a Windows 10 VM hit 200+Mbit/s while downloading updates via the cache. Nice! This is quite an impressive bundle of software. Thank you for making this all work in unRAID. Have also tested this with PiHole by changing the Lancache-bundle UPSTREAM_DNS setting from '' to my PiHole IP. They're both working great, except of course PiHole is no longer showing which Client IP the requests were from, only the IP of the Lancache-bundle container now. Would sniproxy or another part of this bundle could cause problems if I changed the order of DNS r
  9. A big reason Windows can idle much lower by default is because it's a GUI first system, with a driver model that demands GPU makers include every possible state available for Windows to use, usually even before the first visual element appears on screen. Something that might gain similar results is to download a recent LibreELEC ISO and make a VM passing through your GPU and Audio to it. Setup power save in the GUI to sleep the screen after 1min. Disable any background audio settings. Enable SSH and then wait for the display to sleep. SSH in and issue a command to STOP the Kodi
  10. Okay, I've done this several dozen times now, so here goes. Part 1 -- Getting, Converting and Resizing the Image 1. Download the VirtualBox VM from https://dietpi.com -- Make sure it's named: DietPi_VirtualBox-x86_64-Buster.7z 2. Uncompress this into an empty folder. Keep the DietPi_VirtualBox-x86_64-Buster.ova 3. Untar DietPi_VirtualBox-x86_64-Buster.ova -- Resulting in 3 new files. We will focus on the .vmdk file. tar -xf DietPi_VirtualBox-x86_64-Buster.ova 4. Convert the .vmdk into a qcow2 file. qemu-img convert -p -f vmdk -O qcow2 DietPi_Virtual
  11. I had the same trouble, but solved it using testdisk (downloadable via Nerd-Pack) to scan the image file. Testdisk detected an issue with the cylinders number, recommending to change to 64. After doing this and writing the change, it scanned through fine. DietPi is awesome. Default minimal install uses 64MB ram and boots in seconds. I’ll add a short guide on getting it all working when I’m at a keyboard again.
