  1. It seems like it may be lack of lanes. I have the two NVMe drives on the motherboard, an older AMD video card, a Asus 10gbe pcie card, and tried to add in this one, so I am thinking it must just be too much. I could not get it to see it at all anywhere in the bios, etc. I will just have to clear off those two NVMes to spindle disks, remove them, add in the new one, then just transfer back from the spindles. Not a big deal really. I appreciate the help/ideas.
  2. The drive itself is one of the older 980s, a pcie 3.0 device. (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08V83JZH4?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details) What you mentioned about the slot being disabled is a possibility, though. I have not had a chance to hook a monitor to the server yet. Hopefully I will have the chance to do that here soon, as well as checking the lights on the card as vr2lo mentioned, then I will report back.
  3. I appreciate the reply. I am definitely sure it is in the right slot. Aside from the top slot being connected to the sata connector, they come with a label sticker over each of the slots to make sure you know which is which.
  4. Hey all, I had a SilverStone ECM22 laying around and I wanted to get rid of the dual 500gb drives I was using in raid-0 using the onboard nvme slots, as it just makes me nervous, so I put a Samsung 980 in this and was hoping to transfer the stuff from the raid over to it, then install the 980 in one of the onboard slots and put one of the other drives in this as permanent side storage, but it doesn't seem to be recognized. Has anyone ever used one with Unraid? It seems like it should be pretty universally compatible based on the description, but that doesn't mean much I suppose. If not, is there any that anyone knows of that might work? I suppose I could get another NVMe to USB adapter just for quickly transferring stuff over, which I guess I will do if this doesn't work. The hardware in the box currently is a Ryzen 5 2600 on an MSI Gaming plus motherboard. Thanks, -MH https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075ZNWS9Y/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  5. I setup Home Assistant prior to using Unraid and am running it on a Rasp pi 4, but I am running MQTT, NodeRed, TICK stack, etc on my Unraid box for H.A. One of my favorite automations I have setup is I have motion detector near my cats litter boxes, which turns on a wall plug, then after 5 seconds, triggers an RF blaster, which turns on a oil diffuser then runs for 20 minutes, then the wall plug turns off. The other useful one is I have two motion detectors at the entrance to my wifes studio, one up high, about chest level, the other near your feet. If both motion detectors trigger, its a person coming, so it does nothing. If only the lower one is triggered, it means a pet is coming, so it turns on a wall plug which turns on an AC powered air mattress pump that is aimed pointing out of the door to scare them away as the cats always jump up on her work and tear the place up exploring.
  6. I just installed this hoping to accomplish what sounds similar to him. I am a bit confused now, though. Why it is called scatter, if it does not scatter the data across the target drives? If it just moves it from one full drive to one lesser full drive, that sounds more like moving than scattering? Is there not a way to take a drive that is more full than others and scatter the data between the drives until they each are about equal? I had one single drive, now I have 5, I was hoping to take the data from the first drive and spread it out across all of them without having to do it by hand, moving files around manually.
  7. ---- Edit ---- I just tried again from the web console and it looks like when I open it up, it loads up the docker log with errors and then starts to become unresponsive, so I think I will just forget about it for now. I just gave this a try by sshing into my unraid box as usual, then doing 'docker attach powershell' and the console exploded with errors. It seemed to work fine when I actually did it from the web console, though. Not sure exactly what is going on here, though.
  8. The plugin links to a dead site/domain, it looks like? At one point, there was a logo of some type, but it was very generic and had a message about the domain, but it only showed up one time. I refreshed and had not seen it since. Going to that link took me here: Trying to remove the https from the url takes me to here, which is just a blank page, it seems:
  9. I appreciate the reply. I wasn't sure if you could just move data around on the drives willy-nilly because of the parity drive. While there is little data, I wanted to make sure to learn/follow proper best practice, as I was going to transfer 2tb over once it was completed, then I had some more drives on order. I figure best to learn to do it the right way while there is not much to lose, lol.
  10. Hey all, When I built my unraid server, it originally just on my old Ryzen 5 desktop that didn't even have a case, it was just in a box, and I had a 5 bay USB enclosure in which I duct taped some extra fans and what not, lol. Now I have a proper 4U chassis with plenty of airflow and drive bays and I wanted to move the drives into there, but Unraid sees them as "External_USB3.0_DISK01_20170331000C3-0:1 - 1 TB (sdb)". Is it going to be safe to remove them from the enclosure and put them back into the array? I only have 4 disks in the array currently and then in a two cache pool. As you can see below, there really isn't much on there yet to begin with, so if I had to (and there is even a way?) to move the stuff off those two drives and on to the current internal, that would just takes a few minutes. Whatever ends up being best. I was waiting until I did this to move some stuff over from my NAS, just so there would be less hassle. Thanks, -MH
  11. I am experiencing a similar issue to this thread. Running Aquantia 10GbE on my desktop PC (64gb ram) and in the Unraid server, (32gb ram), then my NAS is a QNap TVS-951x (32gb ram). The three are connected using a MikroTik switch. iperf from my desktop to the unraid server itself (and vice versa) is solid full speed on a single thread, but iperf to the Windows 10 VM running on the server, I can't get over 3.5gb (using virtio, only 1.5gb if using virtio-net). My desktop has a pcie4 Sabrent Rocket nvme ssd, and the VM on the Unraid server is running on dual Samsung 970 Evo+ nvme drives. The NAS has 4x Samsung 860 SSD in raid 5 for cache/QTier. To/From everything is pretty much max/or at least expected speed minus the Windows VM, no matter which device I try to test. Not sure what, if anything, can be done at this point?
  12. The original idea was primarily for access control and maximum throughput. The 172 network has my NAS and all of my development projects, and also my home automation server and devices, it was just how I envisioned the setup being when I started putting it together. I suppose though, that giving a Windows VM access to both 192.x and 172.x at the same time negates any security in the first place.
  13. I understand, I can give that a try. My hope was to keep the 10gb for connection between the three devices only, but, I suppose it would not be the end of the world if it only had the one connection. The switch has 4 SPF rj45 (currently using 3) but also has 1 built-in 1gb rj45 which can be used to connect it to the network. If nothing else, as you mentioned, it would be worth it just to see if it helps and narrow things down.
  14. I am not quite sure I follow. The VM does have both br0 (the 192.x.x.x) and br1 (the 172.x.x.x) added. All tests were performed using 172.x.x.x, but that is because that is what I typed in, in order to run the test through the 10gb connection. (200-204 whichever I wanted to test) iperf3 -c 172.254.6.200 That said, I can't remove the 1gb, otherwise there would be no internet connection. I don't have any static routes setup within the switch that would allow traffic from the 192.x.x.x subnet. Is there some sort of network segregation that I might need to perform within Unraid itself?
  15. The 1gb network is used for internet access. The 10gb network has no outside physical connection. The switch is only connected to the three devices, which are using static IP's with no gateway or dns.
  16. Hey there, I setup a 10gb network the other day and everything has been working great so far, except for my Windows VM. It has been giving rather confusing results. The setup: NAS - Qnap TVS-951x NIC 1gb - 192.168.50.200 NIC 10gb - 172.254.6.200 (255.255.0.0 / no gateway) Desktop PC - Pop_OS 20.10 - Gigabye Aorus Elite x570 Onboard 1gb NIC - 192.168.50.225 Asus XG-C100C - 172.254.6.201 (255.255.0.0 / no gateway) Unraid Server - MSI Gaming Plus x470 Onboard 1gb - 192.168.50.230 Windows 10 VM via 1gb Virtio-Net - 192.168.50.233 (both VM NIC show 10gb in network settings) Asus XG-C100C - 172.254.6.202 (255.255.0.0 / no gateway) Windows 10 VM via 10gb Virtio - 172.254.6.204 (255.255.0.0 / no gateway) (Used Virtio-Net originally for 2nd NIC, but VM was even slower, so tried Virtio and it was a bit faster) MikroTik 5 port 10gb switch for the 172.x.x.x devices Shows 10GB Fullduplex across the board Now here is what I am seeing.

  17. Hey there, I am having an issue where the Home Assistant plugin is not loading or saving the config on a fresh install. https://github.com/ElectricBrainUK/UnraidAPI/issues/32
  18. Hey all, I am fairly new to Unraid, and while this seems like a great time to have started using it with the 6.9x release, I seem to be having trouble finding information on how some things work under the hood now. I was running a 970 Evo Plus NVME as my cache drive, but today I grabbed another one. I was going to put them in raid 0, but now I am not sure as I saw some mention about 'the mover'. I am really not sure exactly how the mover works, or what criteria is used as the basis of it's operation, or how to influence that. That said, does having the cache in raid 0 cause additional restriction on how/when the mover is able to operate vs using raid 1 or will that not make a difference? Are there any functionality differences between using cache in raid 0 vs 1 (outside of the basics of standard raid operation) when it comes to what unraid can and cannot do under the hood while in either mode? Since I just rebuilt the cache (added the second 970 about an hour ago) I started the VM back up but it felt magnificently unusable, so do I have to manually invoke the mover to have the vm run on the cache pool? If so, how does one let it know when running it, that the VM is what I want to speed up? Lastly, when a VM is using the cache pool, does it then only live in the cache pool, or are changes written back to the array? If so, how often does that happen? Does it only happen when the VM is off and that is what the mover actually does? So many questions on how things work under the hood, but can't seem to really find much current info. I appreciate any clarification that anyone might be able to provide. Thanks, -MH

  20. Hey all, I created a folder on my flash drive (/boot/config/custom), then I downloaded the text editor application Micro, extracted it, and it worked just fine when it was in /root. I used it to edit the /boot/config/go files to symlink from /boot/config/custom/micro to /usr/local/bin/micro and a few other things, like ohmyzsh, etc. When I rebooted, I noticed that micro no longer had execute permission, so I went into my custom folder and tried to chmod +x, but nothing happened. I had another script in there which I edited with nano and saved just to make sure it was writing changes, which worked fine, but I still could not change it. I saw something mentioned about using a user script to do things, as trying to set +x from config/go didn't work, so just to test I created a user script and tried to set +x on micro from there, but still nothing. I am running out of ideas here, unfortunately. It seems that some of the other things I did have worked, such as symlinking the ohmyzsh folder, .zshenv file, (which then specified ZDOTROOT, etc), to the root directory, but I still can't run Micro. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks, -MH
