  1. I ran unRaid on my Supermicro D525 board for years. I eventually retired it for file transfer speed issues, but I'm finding even on my much-more powerful (Xeon D-1521) system I'm still getting those file transfer speed issues. For a basic file sharing NAS type application the D525 will be perfect. The poor Supermicro board is sitting in a box begging to be used
  2. Pimp Your Rig

    "Not too high" ... "29.5TB" Lol
  3. Just about any mITX motherboard is going to have 4 SATA ports and so all you need to do is find a small mITX enclosure with room for four 3.5" HDDs. Lots of other options - hot swap? tower vs. shoebox vs. flat case design? IPMI? Getting an NUC with a separate Thunderbolt storage box would be an option too.
  4. What Router are you Running?

    So I'm the only one using Comcast's supplied modem/router combo huh? My condo association has a bulk account with Comcast and the rental price of the equipment is included. Can't save any money by using my own equipment, but I do have an Asus AC router with DDWRT and a Moto Surfboard modem. Comcast router/modem works fine and is plenty snappy for my 1200 sqft condo
  5. Is it possible to mount 2 ssds in a pci slot?

    Are they just standard 7mm thick SSDs in a 2.5" format? Do you already have SATA ports available on your motherboard to plug them in? You're just looking for a space to put them? I'd suggest some two sided tape and just stick them in a convenient spot in your case. If they are mechanical drives then this makes the situation a bit more tricky. I assume you don't have any open 3.5" bays? There are trays that allow you to adapt 1 or more 2.5" drives into a 3.5" drive space.
  6. To ECC or not to?

    I have a fairly irrelevant comment to add. Last year for Black Friday I got a great deal on a new server motherboard. I had to buy new RAM to go with it and found a reasonable price on an Amazon Warehouse (open box) ECC stick of RAM. Popped the ECC RAM in the server and haven't thought about since! Just over the weekend I was tinkering with unRaid and noticed in my motherboard info page that it explicitly said "NON-ECC RAM" under my RAM slot. I looked up the model number and sure enough, the RAM was not ECC RAM. I looked at my Amazon order and saw that the model number I purchased on Amazon was not the same as the model number in my server. So what happened? My guess is someone bough the more expensive ECC Ram from Amazon and returned it with a less expensive Non-ECC RAM stick instead. Either way, server is humming along just fine.
  7. Value motherboard w/ IPMI?

    Last year for BF Newegg had some Gigabyte boards with IPMI on a super fire sale. They were mITX with integrated Xeon D CPUs, but that was exactly what I was looking for. Marked down from ~$400 to ~$200. Was too good of a deal to pass up. The board and management features seem a little less polished than my old Supermicro IPMI board, but the functionality is all still there.
  8. Torrents - user share vs. cache drive

    Where do you all keep your active torrent data? A SSD cache drive or a traditional user share on spinning HDDs? I've always had mine on HDD user shares but now that I've got a 256gb SSD cache I'm thinking about moving them over. Lower power, less wear and tear on the spinny drive. Also, I copy my completed torrents over to my user shares so I can archive/sort/rename as I please. As it stands right now copying them from the active spinning HDD to a cache (temporary) is pretty slow. My new workflow would have them being copied from cache to cache until the mover moves them later in the evening. Thoughts?
  9. Thanks for all the hard work! Looks like it's paying off!
  10. Copy speeds from VM to unraid array

    I've been struggling for years to get decent write performance to the ssd cache but I'm in the same boat as you. My copies and writes usually peak in the low 40s
  11. (Solved) Moved - New Router - Reset Static IP

    I think you mean use DHCP to be "yes" but other than that your instructions worked great and were the EXACT level of detail I needed Thanks! Back in action. Next step - get rid of this crappy Xfinity modem/router combo
  12. Hey everyone, I just moved and am now using Comcast's generic modem/router. At my old house I had an ASUS router and thought I had set a static IP for my unraid server through the router. However, it appears I had set the static IP in Unraid itself. I'm able to see the server (IPMI only) through my modem's WebGUI but the Unraid interface doesn't boot up because it can't resolve the IP. Old router used IP range 192.168.2.XXX, new router uses 10.0.0.XXX Fortunately I can connect via IPMI and therefore have command line control. How do I reset the IP so it just does DHCP?
  13. Variety of questions about Syslog

    Great thanks Squid!
  14. Hey all, unRaid has been running fairly smooth but I've got a few things in the Syslog I'm unsure about: Apr 26 18:05:53 Tower avahi-daemon[9261]: WARNING: No NSS support for mDNS detected, consider installing nss-mdns! and also this one: May 9 18:09:53 Tower root: Fix Common Problems: Error: Docker Application binhex-delugevpn, Container Port 58946 not found or changed on installed application May 9 18:09:53 Tower root: Fix Common Problems: Error: Docker Application binhex-delugevpn, Container Port 58946 not found or changed on installed application and also this one: May 9 18:11:16 Tower kernel: docker0: port 1(veth7ed9424) entered disabled state May 9 18:11:16 Tower kernel: veth3d0a169: renamed from eth0 May 9 18:11:16 Tower kernel: docker0: port 1(veth7ed9424) entered disabled state May 9 18:11:16 Tower kernel: device veth7ed9424 left promiscuous mode May 9 18:11:16 Tower kernel: docker0: port 1(veth7ed9424) entered disabled state May 9 18:11:18 Tower kernel: docker0: port 1(veth6f8025c) entered blocking state May 9 18:11:18 Tower kernel: docker0: port 1(veth6f8025c) entered disabled state May 9 18:11:18 Tower kernel: device veth6f8025c entered promiscuous mode May 9 18:11:18 Tower kernel: eth0: renamed from veth5f0ca19 May 9 18:11:18 Tower kernel: docker0: port 1(veth6f8025c) entered blocking state May 9 18:11:18 Tower kernel: docker0: port 1(veth6f8025c) entered forwarding state any thoughts on the above would be great
