  1. Thank you. Started it now.
  2. Yes. There is a little more to the story that may be relevant. I unassigned Parity2 because I was going to perform a Reiserfs to XFS conversion. Then remembered I wanted to swap my Parity 1 drive first and use the old parity 1 drive as the new conversion disk. So then I re-assigned the original parity 2 drive, performed new config, and checked "parity is valid". Nothing changed. I literally unassigned and reassigned the same disk it did not even change physical slots. I believe I then performed a parity check "no corrections" and all was valid. After all that is when I started the parity drive swap.
  3. Hi guys. I know this is a newb post but I have no problem swallowing my pride and asking for help. I was performing a drive swap procedure on Parity 1 with a different 8TB drive. I performed a parity rebuild on the "new" Parity 1 drive and it showed successful. For good measure I decided to perform a parity check with "do not write corrections to parity". This completed but showed 148 errors. I have never in my history of UnRaid had errors during or after Parity check. What would your recommendation be? I thought about rebooting the server re-seating the drives, and performing a check again but allowing it to write corrections to Parity. How do I know the errors are with the Parity? I am attaching the diagnostic log and I do still have the original Parity 1 drive and have not pre-cleared it yet. There was nothing wrong with it. Any an all help is much appreciated. Thanks, Andrew
  4. Sorry I did not try another browser. I have never used anything other than Firefox with my UnRaid dealings. Everything works with Chrome. This seems to be an issue with Firefox as documented in this post
  5. Updated preclear and I don't know if this is related or not but Im having issues. Unable to remove plugins (all) the check box does not appear and the "remove" button stays unselectable. At the same time I am unable to select a notification type or trigger when starting a preclear. Tried a reboot. Any advice? Thanks, Andrew
  6. I think in my trial I loaded 4.7 but when I realized my 2 3TB drives would not work correctly I think I went to a beta v5. Only time I have ever been in the beta crowd lol. I am still running the same server (upgraded along the way) and now have 50TB of disks in it lol. Man you guys have grown but I still consider myself an UnRaid newb. I appreciate this forum everyone I have a question.
  7. I have never used the "Erase and Clear" option. Is the erase cycle normally significantly slower? I am running this on a 8TB 7200rpm NAS drive model ST8000VN002 and I am 38 hours in on step 1. Its staying right around 50 MB/s Edit: It finished erasing after 45 hours and moved onto zeroing. Zeroing at 240 MB/s. Thanks.
  8. I have an older rackmount and it never worked right. Even using nut. It was one of the little SMART500RT1U units. It has been replaced by a APC SmartUPS 1000. None of them I paid for. So I would never actually pay for a triplite if I wanted to use it for UnRaid
  9. Gotcha. Thanks!
  10. Hi, I am currently using this 16 port card LSI0024 (9201-16i) which I believe is the SAS2116 controller. I installed this thing about 1.5 years ago and just plugged it in and went to town. Its been working pretty well for me. I average about 110 MB/s parity check speeds with Dual Parity. I am just now reading about all this cross flashing / IT mode, etc. Is this something I need to do? Is it possible this will help my issue of not being able to reboot my server when my APC USB communication cable is plugged in? I have an older Smart UPS and whenever the USB cable is plugged into the Unraid server Unraid will not boot. It just sits on a blank screen with a flashing underscore. I have checked boot options on the mobo, nothing is available that isnt my flash drive or a data drive. Would IT mode help that problem? Thanks for all advice!
  11. Yea. I almost wish I had tried a difference PCI port. Thats one thing I hadn't done yet. Tower is using a Gold certified Seasonic power supply and is plugged into a APC Smart UPS so I would hope the power quality is good. I could bring a ln o-scope home from work and tinker. But probably wont lol. I'm happy for now! No trees were harmed in the sending of this message, however, a significant number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.
  12. Well I'll be. Re-enabled the onboard Realtek NIC and BOOM. Saturated gigabit speed! Hard to believe the Intel Pro 1000 cards (3 of them) were my problem since they are so highly regarded. Must be some kind of compatibility issue with my motherboard / cpu? Also, zero dropped packets so far. Thanks for all that helped @garycase @Frank1940 @BRiT Guess I will figure out if the stuttering issue returns with use of the Realtek if and when I purchase a newer media streamer. Since the Intel didnt actually fix that problem maybe I'll be fine.
  13. Ok. Well after stopping the array, and enabling direct IO, and restarting to make the SMB changes take effect there are no positive changes. Results are the same. I also ran smbstatus to verify I am now using SMB2 protocol. Thanks for the ideas. Any other ideas / input? I can't believe I could be so unlucky to have a weird unexplainable issue like this. I have no dockers, no VMs, etc. This is a simple NAS.
  14. Also, you mention the Intel NIC cards were needed because of other issues? Curious what those were. The reason I stopped using the Realtek 8111E onboard was because of a stuttering issue using my Dune when playing full quality BluRay rips. It was recommended I try an Intel NIC, the Intel NIC seemed to help, but I never did get that problem resolved (kept the intel installed). It occurred immediately after upgrading to V6. Never had an issue with V5. I would like to think my Dune is bad but I haven't been confident enough to drop $300 or more on a new network media device not even sure if it will work. We have since been using Plex which is awesome for mobility, friends, etc. I would eventually like to go back to watching my full BD rips.
  15. Do you by chance know if changes require a reboot? I have been playing with them non stop since your post with no positive results.
