ESXi 5.x - pre-built VMDK for unRAID

Recommended Posts

I have been updating my VMDK using winimage as new releases come out. You can just replace the bzimage, bzroot, and the new bzroot-gui files in your VMDK each time there is a new release. I can post mine after each update if there is interest.

 

Edit: Here are my VMDKs for 6.1.9 and 6.2.

unRAIDServer-x86_64_v_6_1_9

unRAIDServer-x86_64_v_6_2

 

Thank you!!!

What hardware version are the latest VMDK? Been running on an old unRAID VM forever with the following:

Guest OS: FreeBSD (32-bit)

Compatibility: ESXi 5.1 and later (VM version 9)

 

I just noticed that the guest OS is FreeBSD (32-bit) although I have 6GB RAM set up. Any added benefits to having a higher VM version? Just upgraded to ESXi 6.5a.

 

Update: I just noticed that the attachments are just VMDK to attach to a new VM.

I find my unraid 6.3.2 vmdk on esxi 5.5 totally unresponsive once a week with this message on the console. Any ideas fellow raiders?

There are known problems with reiserfsck 3.6.25, upgrade to unRAID v6.3.3 and run it again, although in this case it may have similar results.

I'm going to get another large enough new drive, insert it into unassigned drives, format it with new fs, then Migrate my data over. Finally rebuild array on new fs and Migrate data back.

Not sure if that's what you intend to do but be aware that a disk formatted with the UD plugin can't be used as an array disk after a new config, it will appear as unmountable.

I found my unraid webut and dockers all unresponsive except for ssh this morning again. This happens every couple days. Any ideas?

Cant wait to try this out when you have a 6.2.4.

 

USB performance using plop.. well kind of plops.

Try using plopkexec instead of plop. Just as fast as bare metal for me.

Does someone have a prebuild 6.3.5 vmdk image?

 

Thanks

Thought with the move to UEFI booting in v6.4 it made things a lot easier with regard to esxi?

Worth trying the latest release candidate?
