  1. Hardware problems log attached.

    You could try pulling a couple of sticks (perhaps from each CPU bank) and see if that clears up the problem. If it is a problem with the line drivers/RAM, that may fix the problem. (I am not certain from what you wrote if you had any indication of a problem BEFORE you got the notice from Fix Common Problems. If that is the case, the issue may always have been there but you just were not aware of it. With EEC, A single bit read error should be detected and a reread should result which may return the proper data. The system may be a bit slower but it probably won't crash and burn.)
  2. What Router are you Running?

    I would think that Cisco would have the manual available for downloading...
  3. Hardware problems log attached.

    With 16 sticks of RAM, You might want to make sure that your RAM is on the approved list. (Sometimes, the control line drivers can't maintain the required waveform which can cause problems as the stick count goes up.)
  4. Help with license key and new USB

    You seem to be having a lot of problems with what seems to a very simple problem to resolve. There have been a lot of folks who have had problems over the years with key files and most of the time LT has responded within 24 hours. I would suggest going back to that 'Replace key' page again. Compose another e-mail to LimeTech and explain the situation in detail (and/or) point them to this thread). Include such details as the GUID's of BOTH the old and new flash drives, the email address that you registered the original key under, and request a key file for your new drive. About the failure to get a Trial Key. I do not know the meaning of that error code. I suspect one of three problems, (1) your server can not get to the Internet, (2) the server is not reaching a DNS server, or (3) the unRAID key server was having temporary problem .
  5. New Unraid Build locks up

    Install the 'Fix Common Problems' plugin and turn on the 'trouble shooting' mode. This will write periodic diagnostics files to the logs directory/folder of the boot drive. Post all of them up in a future post. Also, you can connect up a monitor to the server and see if there is anything on the screen after the lockup. If there is, take pictures until you get one that not blurred, out-of-focus or flash spot. Post that up also.
  6. Hardware problems log attached.

    You might want to give the Gurus a bit more information about what hardware might have a problem and, if that is not available, a list of hardware that you have on the system.
  7. Disks not detected on renesas usb 3.0 controller

    Upload complete diagnostics file. Tools >>> Diagnostics
  8. unRAID OS version 6.4.0-rc15e available

    You need to better describe your hardware setup. What battery are you talking about--- a UPS battery or the laptop battery. You also need to describe what the software setup is. Are you running Win10 VM? (Running unRAID on a laptop is an unusual usage of unRAID, so you will have to provide a lot of details...)
  9. Issue Correctly Booting from USB [SOLVED]

    For information purposes, I would like a bit of qualification. Did you mean that (1) your server will only mount the flash drive on that particular USB3 port and none of the other USB ports on your server or (2) That it will only mount the boot flash drive if it that flash drive is the only USB device plugged into the front USB ports?
  10. dual parity and dual cache......why?

    Start here: and google Q parity calculation and the papers that you find are not for the faint of heart. The theory behind the whole thing involves a lot of matrix algebra. (I hold a BSEE degree from many, many years ago and I when I was looking at the mathematical basis for this approach I soon realize how little I remember from my college years!)
  11. What OS are you using. I checked it just now with both my windows 7 computer and using Krusader (Docker) in unRAID and the files were there. You might want to check the configuration of your file browser/explorer to make sure that the display of system files is enabled. I know that in Win7, it blocked by default. (I believe that most OS's use these same names for these files.)
  12. dual parity and dual cache......why?

    If you are still running that sempron, the parity check time will approximately double. (I had a dual parity setup on my test bed server -- running a sempron 140 back when dual parity was first introduced.) If my memory is not playing tricks with me, I seem to recall that Intel chips preformed a bit better than AMD. I also seem to recall that a CPU had to have around 2000 passmarks to eliminate the time differential between dual and single parity. Be a bit careful as the passmarks available for each core is a factor as I believe that the parity operation is single threaded.
  13. dual parity and dual cache......why?

    No. Parity 1 is a very simple binary operation. Parity 2 is a complex matrix operation and is very CPU intensive UNLESS you have a newer CPU which has an new operator which reduces the number of CPU cycles to do the calculations. You can ANY two drives fail and not lose data. That includes both parity and data drives. So you can have two data drives fail, a data and parity drive, or a two parity drives fail without data loss. But if a third drive fails with any of these combinations, you will be losing data!
  14. krusader hanging up

  15. Windows issues with unRAID

    Apparently there is another round of problems with Windows 10 computers (which have updated recently) having difficulties connecting to an unRAID server using SMB. You might want to look here fro a possible solution. There is a possibility that the Samba group may have a fix for this in the near/distance(?) future.
