  1. HP Microserver - no tape ASUS GENE-iV GEN3 - no tape Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. As per above Dell H310, Dell H200, IBM M1015 All cheap cards from server pulls that work amazingly well with unraid. Also cheap as chips on eBay/GumTree (I'm an Aussie), Craigslist etc Some sellers will even preflash them to P20 IT (HBA Only) mode for you if you ask nicely or even for a small fee Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Dunno if it's just me, but the software feels very clumsy when trying to add cameras I've got 2 main models of cameras. And they both seem to just be difficult to add them and add triggered recording Are there any decent guides for the software? Normally I'd just push through it and write a blog on it, but with all the cyber threats at the moment work is very busy Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Bugger, I just picked up a H330 for $120 AUD Inc shipping EDIT: now to test it in UnRaid haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Probably more genuine too [emoji23] Looks like the Chenbro case is designed for use with a riser rather than vertical slots Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Awesome For what it's worth, TYAN oem'd the LSI cards at a similar time to the S7012, so compatibility should be quite simple Do you know the case make/model? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Are you able to put up some pics of the PCIE arrangement in the case? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. The 9211 based cards are excellent Depending on your mobo, you may need to blank two PCIe pins on the card, it's a weird motherboard compatibility issue, I personally haven't run into it, but other have, a quick google search will answer your problem should you hit it They don't get that hot, I have M1015's in my N54L (FreeNAS) which has bugger all airflow and it's still rock solid. As far as hooking up the drives goes, I would just recommend that you hookup the new card with 1 drive, firstly to test the fan-out cables etc are working as expected, and that the card is working and passing through drives in IT mode Once that's done, screenshot your drive assignments, power down, redo the sata spaghetti and power on They'll easily fit in a 2U chassis, they are available in half-height brackets or full, if you need half height I can send you a ebay link for them, or even the full heights (depending on the server make/model and layout of PCIe) I wouldn't mount a HBA without a bracket on it tho, the vibration in the case will give you a hardware failure sooner rather than later if connections aren't supported correctly Hope this helps Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I'm agreeing that it was possibly very sick nor did I care for the data on the server, I had done god aweful things to that server Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Possible, it's on a box running a trial license, so to the honest I don't pay that much attention to it, other than trying to get my Micron NVMe drive to work Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Oh I agree whole heartedly, I've done storage engineering as part of my background, In the days before flash/ssd it was incredibly common to short stroke disks for those DBA types, such a waste of disk and real estate, but prior to flash, couldn't do much about it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Until the settings decide to apply, can you post your test array settings?
  13. I've turned it on now, hopefully it'll apply Either way I find it odd that it was checking for 0's if the disk was precleared before being added back to the array Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Now that's interesting, as I've tested this as well with 8tb parity disk and a mix of 3 and 4tb data drives, and the parity check only takes as long as it used to with a 4tb parity drive. We're the drives precleared before putting into Parity? If so, does a subsequent parity check run quicker? I can't see a signature with any test server specs :-( Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. The whole point of unraid is being able to have different sized disks in the array. Short stroking your parity seems like a crazy idea to me, as it will only limit your ability to grow the array in future. If only your parity drives are 4tb and the data drives are 3tb or less, the 4th terabyte will be incredibly quick to check, as there will be no checksums there needing testing Backblaze testing can't really be taken as church either, as they way they run the disks is far from their optimal environmentals. I only agree with them with regards to the 1.5tb seagates which were horrible Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
