  1. You cannot go wrong with supermicro chassis IMO, they are nothing but top quality and so well built they remind me of how Compaq used to build their servers back in the late 90's, like tanks (am I dating myself?) Good choice and may you have many happy years together!
  2. Good catch, Best Buy had these on for around the same price a few weeks ago, I grabbed one then, they are totally shuckable.
  3. I used one of these cards in my DS380 build, while not an LSI card, it served my purpose. https://www.amazon.com/IO-Crest-Controller-Non-Raid-SI-PEX40064/dp/B00AZ9T3OU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1495559951&sr=8-1&keywords=iocrest+4+port+sata
  4. You would need an HBA in your micro server that has an external port, then a cable that goes from that external port to a breakout cable that connects to the all the backplane ports of the DS380, assuming something like this exists. You would need some method of presenting the drives in the DS380 to your HP Microserver and I don't think eSATA is the way.
  5. Why not just crack it open and use it as an internal drive?
  6. Just some built in functionality that uses Rsync in the background would be fine, configurable through the gui.
  7. I would do some research first to see if unRAID can offer you what you have today with Proxmox in terms of virtualization. While unRAID has matured a great deal virtualization is still one of the areas that needs improvement, in my opinion. I run all my internal infrastructure on VMWare and wouldn't consider moving it over to unRAID unless things like snapshots and api's that can tie in to third party backup applications like Veeam, exist, and they likely never will because the hypervisor used in unRAID, KVM, is not trying to compete with ones like VMWare. Don't get me wrong, KVM is great for what it is, it does work, I run a Windows 10 VM on one of my unRAID servers that I use for gaming, I pass an NVidia GTX 960 through to it and runs like bare metal, but I wouldn't run any critical VM's on it, I just don't have that kind of comfort level with it. As for not wanting to protect your data with respect to nzbget and rutorrent, those dockers typically save their data to a cache drive anyway (not mandatory) so you don't have to worry about the unassigned devices plugin.
  8. I could do it from a windows box, just wondered if there was something I could do on the server that didn't involve the CLI.
  9. That's really odd, usually they send you the next available drive up from the size you sent them, not down. So if you sent them a 5TB and they didn't have any 5TB replacements they should of sent you the next available 6TB drive, not a 4TB.
  10. I want to backup one unRAID servers share to another unRAID server in my house. I am not terribly proficient at the command line, what is the best/easiest app to use for this purpose? I will need to do an initial copy of about 20TB and then periodic syncs to update the backup with new and changed files.
  11. Install the fix common problems plugin and set it to troubleshooting mode. If you haven't done a memtest do one and upload your diagnostics for a start.
  12. Thanks guys I hadn't thought of either of those options, appreciate it.
  13. Would it be too difficult to add this functionality to a future release of unRAID? I realize it's a little dangerous and perhaps that would be why people would be against the idea, but for those of us not comfortable/familiar with the CLI its chore to have to delete a share from the command prompt.
  14. What if they aren't empty, do I then have to do it from the CLI?
