  1. storage transfer question

    Yes, the OP could try this if there is enough free space in the vdisk. However, try to make a backup of the vdisk first somewhere if possible as shrinking vdisks is always tricky. Also, just a bit off topic don't try defragmenting thin provisioned disks as this can bloat them moving the blocks around. Now it is possible to re-thin provision a vdisk too. I will make a video how soon. You need to use some tools called libguestfs ( unfortunately they are not included in unraid. so what i have done in the past is to use them from a Linux VM such as fedora install the tools with sudo yum install libguestfs-tools then using virt-sparsify you can reclaim the space
  2. @Dual_Shock please post your xml, iommu groups, and your cpu thread pairings so we can see Definitely, try passing through the vbios.Your 770 probably didn't work because it didn't support EFI so would only work using seabios and not ovmf. Passing through a 770 vbios that does support that will make the card start with an EFI bios so work that or you could flash the card but its much easier to use rom in XML. Check your bios settings that your primary GPU is onboard if you have that and make sure that multi-monitor is off. Also don't mix cores from across your 2 CPUs.
  3. storage transfer question

    @charleslam @SSD Sorry just read this post. So you have an array with 1 parity and 3 data drives. You want to replace the data drives with ssds drives in the array, whilst keeping a parity disk. This will work very poorly. You will still have to write to the parity drive on each write so it will be slow even with the ssds. Dont put the vms on the array. Have the ssds as unassigned devices then use them for the vms that way. That way reads and writes will be fast. If you are worried about your harddrives failing so loosing a vm and thats why you want them on parity protected drives then just make backups of the vdisks to put on the array. If you dont have enough sata ports for 3 ssds and the drives in the array you can either use a pcie sata card or if you dont store data on the array other than the vms then you can just use your largest drive in the array and have no parity, or just have one parity and one data.
  4. USB not bootable

    Put the usb file in your computer. On the flash you should see a file called make_bootable.bat run that. Then put it back in your server and boot it and see if that fixes it.
  5. Constant error wrong csrf_token

    @itimpi thankyou its all fine now. Yes there was a browser window open.
  6. I have been having an error for a while, Oct 12 20:54:57 Prime root: error: /plugins/preclear.disk/Preclear.php: wrong 1B3686508D86B070:5FD242AFEADA08A2 csrf_token When i remove the preclear plugin error changes to the following:- Oct 12 21:13:58 Prime nginx: 2017/10/12 21:13:58 [error] 13799#13799: *18813 FastCGI sent in stderr: "Unable to open primary script: /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/preclear.disk/Preclear.php (No such file or directory)" while reading response header from upstream, client:, server: , request: "POST /plugins/preclear.disk/Preclear.php HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock:", host: "", referrer: "" These errors are from my main server ip My other server is (which is currently shutdown) I am not sure why it would mention my other server's ip in the log? Any help greatly appreciated.
  7. First NAS Build Advice

    Yes its up to the OP if he wants dual parity etc. But he is asking us for our advice then can make the best decision for him. We would all like dual parity and lots of backups but cost is always a factor. For the OP i would recommend to start with buying three 8tb drives as he only has 5tb of data which he predicts will grow by 2 to 3tb per year. I personally would then use the drives like this drive 1 --- Parity drive 2 ---Data drive 3 -- Unassigned drive for backup Then use a container such as duplicati to make both an onsite backup to drive 3 and another to the cloud. This will last him until he has more than 8tb of data at which point he can add more drives and rethink the best way forward. ps @tdallen lol hey I love the led lights in my rig. They're my favorite bit of the whole computer
  8. I just unplugged my server from the router and restarted it. The array did start ok. I thought it may not because i am using an rc unRAID version. I remember a while ago reading unRAID rcs wouldnt start without internet but it seems it is okay now. It did take a while for it to start though. Oh and obviously your server would need a static ip. I am thinking out aloud a bit whilst writing this but for logging into the server from another machine. If you have one, you could use a separate access point with another wifi network on it. Enable a very small dhcp pool on that but restrict it by mac address to only the mac address of your laptop or whatever. Keep access point switched off. Then if the server goes down you can switch on access point then log into its wifi, your laptop will get an address on the correct subnet and you can login. Theres a few guys running pfsense in a vm so what you want to do will be fine. You will need to isolate the quad nic from unraid then passthrough the the nic to the vm so its separate. I was going to build a pfsense vm but got side tracked setting up 10gbe between my 2 servers and now i dont have any free pci slots for another nic!
  9. Best media server that isn't Plex on unRAID??

    You could try binhex's minidlna.
  10. Hi @gr2659 So when you say clover scans the entries then hangs, it just freezes/hangs before it tries to load OSX? So it is clover crashing and not OSX booting and crashing? The fake smc can be in the clover image in the efi/clover/kexts/other folder. However using 2.10 you dont have to use fakesmc but you would need to have your osk key which we can not post in the forums. but the end of your xml would look like this if not wanting to use fakesmc (i prefer not to use any kexts if possible) <qemu:commandline> <qemu:arg value='-usb'/> <qemu:arg value='-device'/> <qemu:arg value='usb-mouse,bus=usb-bus.0'/> <qemu:arg value='-device'/> <qemu:arg value='usb-kbd,bus=usb-bus.0'/> <qemu:arg value='-device'/> <qemu:arg value='isa-applesmc,osk=xxxxxxxxOSK_KEY_xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'/> <qemu:arg value='-smbios'/> <qemu:arg value='type=2'/> <qemu:arg value='-cpu'/> <qemu:arg value='Penryn,vendor=GenuineIntel,kvm=on,+invtsc,vmware-cpuid-freq=on,'/> </qemu:commandline> </domain> You could try changing this part of your xml too as using ryzen (i'm not sure if this would help , i have no way to test as i dont have a ryzen cpu) Change this <cpu mode='host-passthrough' check='none'> <topology sockets='1' cores='4' threads='2'/> </cpu> to this so <cpu mode='custom' match='exact' check='none'> <model fallback='allow'>Penryn</model> <topology sockets='1' cores='4' threads='2'/> </cpu> Just set the topology to how many cores that you assigned to your vm or just remove the topology line altogether.
  11. @archedraft Wow, the guy who originally brought us the OSX VM on unRAID, likes my video! I haven't actually tried passing through my USB controller on High Sierra yet (as when I set it up there were no Nvidia web drivers for my GPU). But I will definitely try it this weekend now. My best guess is that because in this guide the XML is different to try to correct mouse tracking for the vnc. The USB tablet is added <input type='tablet' bus='usb'> <address type='usb' bus='0' port='1'/> </input> <input type='mouse' bus='ps2'/> <input type='keyboard' bus='ps2'/> And this relates to the changes below <qemu:arg value='-usb'/> <qemu:arg value='-device'/> <qemu:arg value='usb-mouse,bus=usb-bus.0'/> <qemu:arg value='-device'/> <qemu:arg value='usb-kbd,bus=usb-bus.0'/> So these changes left in when passing through the USB controller possibly could be causing the issues with the mouse. So maybe try changing the XML to remove the USB tablet <input type='mouse' bus='ps2'/> <input type='keyboard' bus='ps2'/> and then changing the qemu:arg part back to this <qemu:arg value='-device'/> <qemu:arg value='usb-kbd'/> <qemu:arg value='-device'/> <qemu:arg value='usb-mouse'/>
  12. [Support] Virt-Manager

    Awesome. Great job just installed and working great. Thanks
  13. [Support] binhex - DelugeVPN

    @binhex Ok its not Sunday but the new video for Deluge VPN is now uploaded How to Install and Setup Deluge - VPN on unRAID -- updated video September 27 2017
  14. Yes if you are still using 6.3 then that has qemu 2.7. We need 2.9 minimum for this guide to work so yes you will have to use an RC version for wait for the stable 6.4 release.
