  1. I would start with memtest and hopefully someone will have a look at your diagnostics and see something.
  2. If there were no other changes, nothing was moved, no new network cards, changes to the network, new switch, cabling then its hard to say. Typically problems like this don't happen out of the blue for no apparent reason. Did they start happening after an unRAID upgrade?
  3. So at some point you upgraded the board/cpu and RAM, but it ran for a year since then? All you did was reduce the RAM and the server started becoming unresponsive?
  4. So prior to this reduction in memory the server ran for how long without any issues?
  5. Did anything change recently? Hardware upgrade perhaps? New HBA?
  6. Yes they run silently unless an alarm goes off, usually when there is a power failure or the battery dies.
  7. That should work just fine, make sure you notice that half the outlets provide battery backup while the other half only provide surge protection and no battery backup.
  8. I recommend APC, they are a solid brand and work with the built in unRAID UPS software.
  9. I have zero issues with mine.
  10. Yes, I have been building servers to run Esxi since version 3.5 I know from experience, there are always going to be exceptions, but the hardware compatibility list has been shrinking over the years. I recently tried to upgrade one of my white boxes running 5.1 to 5.5 and I couldn't because the motherboard was no longer supported under 5.5 Intel was one of the few companies that you could run Esxi on for a white box, but it just wasn't possible with Asus, Gigabyte, Asrock etc. That was my point.
  11. What I was getting at is that PC hardware generally can't run Esxi, Supermicro make server motherboards with server class components, but you tried an average Asus, Asrock, or Gigabyte motherboard you would likely end up being unable to install Esxi. So sure, if you pick the right server components you can build an Esxi white box but you do have be careful about the components you pick.
  12. I just picked up this used 12U rack from a guy for $250, its kind of like the one in this link however I think mine is an older model. https://www.startech.com/ca/Server-Management/Racks/15U-Enclosed-Cabinet-Plexiglass-Front-Door~2636CABINET Not sure what the market is like in the UK but I am sure you should be able to find something on the used market, craigslist maybe? Finding something for around 100 quid though might be a real challenge though.
  13. Problem with ESXi is hardware compatibility, if you want to run 6 or 6.5 then you are really stuck with running name brand hardware such as Dell, HP, Lenovo etc. This can further complicate things because these servers are generally big, loud and parts can be expensive but its doable. I just picked up a Dell R710 (rack mount) with dual quad core Xeons, 48GB of ECC RAM with one power supply and a Dell Perc 6i raid controller for $400 in a private sale. The Perc 6i does not handle drives over 2TB or do JBOD, but I didn't buy it for unRAID I bought it for ESXi and it runs great after I added some drives. If you look around on eBay you may find something that fits your budget just be careful of RAID controllers if you want to use greater than 2TB drives.
  14. Thanks that worked I was able to rollback. I could not find a mako folder.
  15. So I just updated to the latest release of Medusa and the webui is unavailable, it simply won't open. The logs seem to indicate a crash every time you try to access the webui. How do I rollback to the previous version? 2017-04-21 19:43:49 ERROR Thread-16 :: [9c19b10] Exception generated: Cant locate template for uri u'home.mako' Traceback (most recent call last):File "/app/medusa/medusa/server/web/core/base.py", line 259, in async_callresult = function(**kwargs)File "/app/medusa/medusa/server/web/home/handler.py", line 134, in indext = PageTemplate(rh=self, filename='home.mako')File "/app/medusa/medusa/server/web/core/base.py", line 61, in __init__self.template = lookup.get_template(filename)File "/app/medusa/lib/mako/lookup.py", line 259, in get_template"Cant locate template for uri %r" % uri)TopLevelLookupException: Cant locate template for uri u'home.mako' 2017-04-21 19:45:16 ERROR Thread-16 :: [9c19b10] Exception generated: Cant locate template for uri u'home.mako' Traceback (most recent call last):File "/app/medusa/medusa/server/web/core/base.py", line 259, in async_callresult = function(**kwargs)File "/app/medusa/medusa/server/web/home/handler.py", line 134, in indext = PageTemplate(rh=self, filename='home.mako')File "/app/medusa/medusa/server/web/core/base.py", line 61, in __init__self.template = lookup.get_template(filename)File "/app/medusa/lib/mako/lookup.py", line 259, in get_template"Cant locate template for uri %r" % uri)TopLevelLookupException: Cant locate template for uri u'home.mako' It appears to be functioning, its just the webgui is not accessible.
