  1. HELP! Harvey bit me

    He doesn't have the USB though with the original drive mappings using the identifier. Unfortunately you can only NOT have one of the following in single parity: 1) USB drive for unraid 2) Parity Disk 3) Array Disk(s) I believe you are going to have to try to rebuild the lost disk using the "swamp" drives and "swamp" parity, then that disk could be directly implemented in your new installation. Better than starting from scratch at least!
  2. Unraid Review After 5 Months

    Dolphin and/or a Windows 10 VM with root share access has been my best document management solution. Keeping the files all within the box (not to outside comp and back) is key. I peg my WD external at 110-125 MB/s in large transfers with either solution. Thanks for the review!
  3. [Support] Linuxserver.io - Nextcloud

    I am getting a notification that 12.0.2 is ready for installation, is this something I should wait for the docker to be updated or is it ok to update within the software? Usually I like to hold for a docker update.
  4. IGD Not Available 6.3.5

    Thanks, was afraid of that!
  5. IGD Device Assignment to VMs

    Posted in General. I believe everything is in place to be properly implemented per the 6.3 release blog entry. Thanks.
  6. IGD Not Available 6.3.5

    My i5-3570K onboard graphics isnt showing up as a Graphics card option in 6.3.5. Do I need to peruse in the bios or reboot? 6.3.X should have this feature correct? This is a big deal for me as I don't have VT-d to allow graphics card passthrough. Or maybe that is the issue, I need VT-d in order to use this feature? Confirmed 00:02.0 Xeon E3-1200 2/3rd gen core processor graphics controller. Otherwise everything is working great with remote desktop, etc. Also the wiki needs to be updated to reflect the ability to assign onboard graphics with 6.3 (at least in theory?): https://wiki.lime-technology.com/UnRAID_Manual_6#Using_Virtual_Machines

  8. As someone recently and now fully committed to Unraid and still generally aware of what other options exist (most of the time), I was reading into WSS in WS12 and looked at some of the new featured and wondered if they had ever been considered for the Unraid roadmap: Feature/functionality New or updated? Description Storage tiers New Automatically moves frequently accessed data to faster (solid-state drive) storage and infrequently accessed data to slower (hard disk) storage. Write-back cache New Buffers small random writes to solid-state drives, reducing the latency of writes. Parity space support for failover clusters New Enables you to create parity spaces on failover clusters. Dual parity New Stores two copies of the parity information on a parity space, which helps protect you from two simultaneous physical disk failures and optimizes storage efficiency. Automatically rebuild storage spaces from storage pool free space New Decreases how long it takes to rebuild a storage space after a physical disk failure by using spare capacity in the pool instead of a single hot spare Just wondering of thoughts. Personally the last item (pool space rebuild) and storage tiers based on data usage sound extremely enticing. I have (albeit manual) cache only setup for my faster needs, dual parity is already done (and is amazing). Just thinking about automating some of the data manipulation for speed and safety got me thinking... Thoughts? Original webpage: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn387076(v=ws.11).aspx

    Also if and admin wants to change title to "BACK after giving up, couldn't be happier" that would be great.
  10. BACK after giving up, couldn't be happier

    Alright guys so some good news, I bought a license last night and I was able to move to a more modern PC with: Core i5 - 3570K (no Vt-d, sad) 4GB Ram (needs more!) SSD Cache (Corsair M4) 3x1TB Drives, 1 parity 4TB external for media (that I can replicate if I lose) So far apps I have installed are: -CouchPotato (Migrating to Radarr soon) -Deluge -Dolphin -LetsEncrypt/Nginx -Nextcloud -Sonarr -Plex Media Server -PlexPy -PlexRequests (Someone JUST turned me on to OMNI today on FB Plex Pals group, likely migrating to that) -Radarr -Windows 10 VM (I have no idea what to do with it, just sitting there for now) With a brand new installation I have found none of the issues I was previously having, I was able to get CA installed with all of the dockers, apps, get the array set up to my liking, and speeds are 80+ MB/s in parity checks and I have had zero issues with lagging multiple local streams from the box. It 100% meets my needs now and I am very thankful to have taken a second swing. I have everything behind Nginx and letsencrypt and can access it from the internet anywhere in the world. Right now my wife is on vacation and can stream her workout video's via plex app or on her phone. Looking forward to the continued support as I continue to learn. I have been up about 75 days now with a few shutdowns from power loss to my home and for purchasing the license, but I think I may just go ahead and say I must have done something wrong on the old computer, there is really no reason I can find I should have been having my previous issues outside of perhaps rushing something beyond what the old computer could take. Woohoo!!!

    When users have had problems, the solution usually was to either try a USB 2.0 port, or try a USB 2.0 flash drive (in a USB 2.0 port). A 'Boot Error' means the drive that the system thinks it should boot from is not bootable. So there are 2 possible issues: - The system is trying to boot from the wrong drive. If it tries to boot from one of your hard drives, such as a data drive or parity drive, then you would get a 'Boot Error'. Many older BIOS's will try to 'help' you every time you make a physical change in the attached drives, by setting the boot order to a hard drive, not your USB drive. So you will usually have to enter the BIOS and 'fix' the boot order every time you add or change the physical drives. - The drive isn't bootable. The acid test would be to see if the drive will boot other machines. If so, it's bootable, and there's something wrong with this machine. But older machines can be more picky about what's bootable. For maximum 'bootableness', make sure it's a decent mainstream USB 2.0 drive, not too big (1GB to 16GB), single partition, formatted in FAT (but you can try FAT32), and you have successfully run make_bootable on it. Same USB drive as is booting in the HP is not booting in Emachine. I have even attempted with it being the ONLY drive in the system. Not sure what is up on that one.

    1) USB 3.0 functionality is not hugely important to me, but thanks for the note. Will it cause issues or just downgrade to 2.0? 2) Drives are all XFS per the recommendation of the manual. 3) Flat out it just says "Boot Error" after the SMART procedure on boot. Where other computers go to the unraid menu, it just says "Boot Error" and hangs. Weird for sure. It shouldn't be too old, as there are some people with much older hardware here. It's a 64-bit chip as well. AMD 3400+

    I also have a 2 TB drive that is very nice after boot. Array fine, all green. Some time later it will time out and never come back until next reboot. The slow transfer speed along with that error makes me point at the drive in first place. Replace and try without it to rule it out as root cause. I will note that I did rebuild without this drive and the error message was gone but the OS still hangs after a certain period of time (hours, under a day). I believe it to be unrelated. Did you get any SMART errors? This drive has been nothing but solid so far, but I'm not eliminating the possibility of it being bad.
  14. BACK after giving up, couldn't be happier

    Alright so I have to say this forum is fantastic and I am really glad to see some people willing to lend a hand. Honestly I have not had that experience in other forums, so maybe this Unraid IS worth a shot. So I think based on the internal computer kicking around files at 90 MB/s+ and parity checks killing it right at about that speed as well, I think the source MUST be the onboard NIC. So what I plan to do is hack together a temp solution with a new drive and a new install of Unraid, and attempt transfers with and without a gigabit NIC card to see if I see any differences. It looks as though I can bring over most of my array/share/plugin/etc. settings to a new fresh install (I brought in my USB drive to see what all files live on the boot drive), so perhaps if I can find a way to get it to show some speed I will do another trial and purchase. The only problem I see here is the software is seeing the NIC as gigabit and is properly set up with mtu 1500 or whatever it is. Sorry for the crabby OP post all, I am just used to a more "figure it out yourself" community. P.S. I am not concerned at all about the USB 3.0 drive or speeds to/from it. It is my backup for my backup and will only run every ~3 months or so through a different computer backing up critical data. It is my cold storage drive.

    Completely valid question, and honestly I guess I never thought it would help. I searched and changed and searched and changed and utilized these forums very intentionally, but with my background in computer building and the testing that I did, I guess I just narrowed it down to the OS as the sole source of the issue without assistance. As far as fixing, this is something that I didn't have a TON of time to invest in and therefore I ran into the issues late in the trial. Copying almost 2.5TB of data 5MB/s at a time takes a while ha.
