    4x NVMe drives on single PCI-e expansion card.....

    considering this a buy too. I guess as long as your mainboard support PCIe bifurcation (check your bios) it will work and split the lanes up. on top of that individual iommu groups would be great. tell me more about it ! not many reports out there....btw anybody with supermicro 2xnvme >pcie adapter experience here ?

    Windows 10 VM CPU Usage

    here too. constantly seeing approx ~25-35% load on each of the 4 assigned vcores that power my win10 1803 vm. cpu is a e5-1650v3; cpu governor set on 'power save'
  3. sometimes when a docker has handled / created files the permissions get changed . Have a look and check in the unraid tools tav the new permissions / docker safe permissions options. when you decide to use these be careful not to apply it to your appdate folders !

    Best bang for the buck (Intel Xeon)

    I got a E5-1650v3 for 190 € ( I believe it was a bargain :) substituting a E5-1620v4 because it has 2 more physical cores. but the v4 Win 10 VMs felt more snappy. I wonder if its the vt-d optimizations ? @HellDiverUK which 10 cores are you refering too / what price ? TIA

    Unusual VM setup proposal and questions.

    why do you need a windows host if a unraid win vm can give you 98% bare metal perf. ? whats the purpose of the project ? just wondering

    Unusual VM setup proposal and questions.

    "pass the client window to one of my Windows 10 VMs" what I believe actually happens with looking glas is that it runs on the host (linux(maybe also unraid) and then the client VM output (with almost no latency) is passed (via direct framebuffer read out) to a window on the host

    maybe "Looking Glass" * is the solution you are looking for ? afaiu it will give you bare metal GPU performance and still allows you to have a windowed vm *An extremely low latency KVMFR (KVM FrameRelay) implementation for guests with VGA PCI Passthrough.
  8. my few cents; I have used a 750 EVO but the NAND is not durable. Currently I use a CRUCIAL MX500 1TB and it seems excellent price/performance ratio wise (paid ~260 USD). it tends to overheat (probably my bad -airflow since its stuck on the backside of the board against a tower wall) It also feels a bit slower than a Samsung Pro. I´d stick with Samsungs PRO line either SATA or if you need the speed NVMe via PCIe. The PRO line has a higher TBW spec but costs a bit more than the EVO. About size - totally up to you - I had the 750 EVO with 500 and it got too small quickly with all the VMs on it.

    +1 count me in. built-in filemanager would be awesome

    Sandisk Cruizer Fit (16GB)?

    same here. using the 8Gig Cruzer Fit without issue , USB3 Port, X10SRA-F Board
  11. I have a similar issue. I made a macOS usb install media (with a macOS 10.13.3 High Sierra and latest BDU utility) on my windows vm. efi partition and hfs partition seem to be there on the usb stick. I then made the img. via the terminal command and set up the vm in unraid as per the instructions + xml copy and paste. I can boot the vm into clover but there is no option to install macOS. Seems it cant find the second non-efi partition. the most left option in the clover menu is uefi shell; when I go in the uefi shell I can see fs1 is the efi partition with efi/clover and on it and fs1 is the macos partition. when i go in fs1: efi/clover/cloverx64.efi is there and i can boot in that to arrive back in the clover menu. so that is that after i initially made the usb install media i copied kexts (from gridrunners support files dated 24-09-2017 (to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts) and his config.plist 19-09-2017 (to /EFI/CLOVER) as well as the two drivers (to /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI). Also copied the q35...aml file (to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin). Besides wondering what the issue is I also ask myself: -is creating the install media with BDU utility in a windows vm a problem (uefi/efi mode ?) -do gridrunners files (kext and config.plist) need to be updated to fit the my highsierra release ? has anybody made the usb install media on windows ? any help is most appreciated thanks
  12. glad it works now for you. still strange that a plugged in cable can cause this. I wonder whats happening behind the scenes. Why would unraid claim the dGPU. Would the command lspci -v -nn -s xx:xx.x (stands for the GPU bus:slot.function) show that a driver is assigned (by unraid) to the GPU ?
  13. just some guesswork does the vm show any activity when you start it ? what does the system log say ? any errors (call traces etc.) there for passthrough / vfio assignments when you click on start vm ? I would stop the 2 device USB passthrough (keyboard and mouse plugged in unraid usb slot ?) and switch to only one core and hyper-v and see what happens are you using a ACS patch ? GPUs should be in an isolated iommu group. unraid is not supposed to bind drivers for the dGPUs anyway. just wondering with you here.
  14. Xmas was a bit earlier in December this year Got a managed switch to dig into VLAN, invested in a 2nd hand 2nd GPU (AMD 6850) which is installed powering my wifes VM and a TBS6922 DVB-S2 TV card on my desk for a(nother) project (TVheadend ) I love this ! PCIe USB3 expansion card and PCIe NVM bifurcation card (ASUS) + first NVM drive (Samsung) remains on Santas to-do list, but I heard 2018 has 12 months left... oh yeah, and I was close to pull a trigger on a E5-2666 v3 but would need to buy two (sigh) one of these babies would be way enough for my lu(na)dic drive..... that and Threadripper mess seems to get resolved bit by bit, so ... cheers

    Unraid 6 Setup from existing machine

    Hi and welcome, a newbie myself but i´ll give it a try 1) "to the point you had it previously" ? well, if you want to keep your old machine you need to migrate this current system into a vm in a form that can be used later on the unraid virtualization environment (qemu) 2) shares are created on the array. new disks coming into the array will usually get pre-cleared (=check and format) and thus old content is deleted. pre-clearing is recommended but afaik not mandatory. make sure to backup all the data before starting to build the unraid system with these disks. you can also start with one disk hanging in the array and then copy the data from the other old disks step by step (hint: via unassigned device and mc or krusader) after that hang the second disk in the array and wash and repeat with the other remainig old data drives outside the array. 3) parity drive should be the largest drive (or two drives in case you want dual parity) in the array. a slow but big drive is good enough 4) besides the parity drive you will want a data drive (or more than one) and a cache drive (pcie ssd will serve well and is very fast), use the latter for your VMs as well 5) i have no experience for dual boot (ubuntu+unraid). I guess you need a bootmanager set up properly to select unraid usb flash stick or your other OS drive. maybe via bios boot order selection . that may be inconvenient. if your mainboard had ipmi it could make things easier if you plan to remotely administer . be careful if you plan to assign drives to both OS´. that may lead to corrupt data 6) gpu should work fine in both systems since its not possible to run both at the same time cheers
