I actually bought this for my headless unit. It's good to plug in from time to time to monitor BIOS updates or do some light troubleshooting. It was cheap, and it can fit in a pocket. However, I wouldn't want to do any real work on that screen.
I have a Node 804 case, and I'm actually considering making a cutout in the front cover, and just mounting this screen right in front.
You need to download the OpenVPN config file and then save it in the deluge folder. But it has to be an .ovpn file to work, and save it in the deluge/openvpn. I was a bit lost when I wanted to select NordVPN as my custom VPN, but their customer support was really helpful. Adding other custom VPNs should work like that as well
I have tons of the old Kingston SE9 16GB (USB 2.0); they are fast enough for 90% of my uses.
I had been looking for a reliable USB 3.0+ drive and had already bought several of the Samsung Fit Plus 32GB (USB 3.1).
I have had very bad luck with USB 3.0 drives in general... I have more drives dead drives then fingers and toes... I have gotten tired of warranty claims with Crucial, Corsair, PNY (Never buying another PNY manufactured/rebranded product again). Still have 100% of my Kingston SE9 8GB/16GB drives (USB 2.0... boring but reliable in my experience!)

Curious to know what/how you implement/monitor. I'd be interested in trying this out on my box, too.
P.S. Make sure you're only exposing dockers to the internet and NOT your whole server. Unraid wasn't built or designed to be completely exposed to the internet
> We highly, highly recommend not exposing your server to the internet or placing it in the DMZ of your router unless you know what you are doing and are following strong security protocols.
> No matter how locked down you think you have your server, it is never advisable to place it in the DMZ on your network. By doing so, you are essentially forwarding every port on your public IP address to your server directly, allowing all locally accessible services to be remotely accessible as well. Regardless of how "locked down" you think you actually have the server, placing it in the DMZ exposes it to unnecessary risks.
Not sure if you've tried it but Joplin is a pretty great notes app. You can run a sync server on unraid and install the clients everywhere or also install a container client and access it remotely (though that last one is a bit cumbersome).
hey there i found this a while ago and i will be damned if it's not THE best piece of software i have come across.
this software installs a tech kind of like rdp BUT it's blitz and real-time.

That’s a fine UPS. I have the 450VA version of it for my wifi mesh node. The only thing to look out for is that some PSU don’t play nice with UPS that doesn’t produce pure sine wave. Unfortunately that’s something you really don’t know until you try it with your specific PSU. You can just get a pure sine wave UPS, but they tend to be more expensive. This is what I have for my Unraid server:

That Rosewill 4500 chassis....a lot of people switch out the included molex fans for PWM Arctic fans. Those Molex fans are a pain getting all connected and they don't offer RPM control. Also, everyone flips the fan wall around. Just some tips. For the fans, they sell em in 5-packs. I did all this from others recommendations

What about TPB? Cannot use that?
Just a head's up for everyone here: Lidarr is still very much in development at the moment and we still have a good many issues with parsing downloads and imports, but they're one of our top priorities. To keep up with everything, please join us on Discord and feel free to report any issues on our GitHub.
I have the same case for my unRAID server, I’d recommend getting these for the top power button, I have a bad habit of leaning on mine and producing unscheduled shutdowns. Haven’t had one since.

While I appreciate the sentiment, and I might try out Mullvad at some point, I value the speeds and general support that comes with PIA. My goal here is akin to using a bike lock. Most people can break a bike lock, I just want a layer of security that makes it not worth bothering.
I wouldn't trust PIA or Mullvad if I were doing anything other than pedestrian browsing or Linux ISO torrenting.
They've literally been asked for logs in court before and said they didn't have any. VPNs are entirely based on trust, you'll never know for sure if they actually protect you. You might convince yourself Mullvad is safer because it's not based on the US, but you can't confirm beyond a shadow of a doubt they won't start logging at some point in the future.
At the end of the day most people use VPNs to prevent themselves from being easy targets for copyright letters.
You can get this puppy and buy a 5n3 and get close to your drive allotment:
You can hookup a dell MD1200 which is a solid DAS shelf and it'll be supported on unraid.
Installing onto a USB stick with a few apps.
I like this ventoy.
Alternatives are listed in the link. Rufus and Etcher are popular to write to USB.
Ventoy works different where you put multiple iso files on the USB, ventoy will boot, then you select an iso to boot from. Much more convenient if you use a few different OSs.
>IT would be cool if the UNRAID forum 2FA challenge they added here would automatically be required for enabling the My Servers plug in. Or is it?
Remote access should be locked behind the Unraid forum login imo. Sorta like Cloudflare Access where you have to be authenticated to even access the service.
I don't use the self-hosted version of Bitwarden, but the link below has some details regarding what you need to backup.
If you're using the Bitwarden docker container in Unraid, you'll need the to make sure you backup all your current docker settings and the data directory. The nice thing about Docker is that you can easily create another Bitwarden container, point it to a different test data path and then give backing up and restoring the data another go without worrying about your working instance.

How are you trying to get to the web page? Are you going direct via IP? Looks like you are trying to lauch the web player via Plex.tv and you don't have port forwarding set up on your router.
Firewall rules. It will really depend on your firewall. At home, I use pfsense. On a regular consumer router, this isn't likely possible.
If your firewall supports this, the best way to do this is to create an alias and then load their IP ranges (https://www.cloudflare.com/ips/)
Then in your NAT rules, create the rule in a way that port 443 (and 80 if it's also open) are explicitly open to Cloudflare's IP ranges and nothing else.
> LS.io's pull limit was reached
Nope. The limit is applied to the user who downloads the image.

I'm using Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows on all my computers for complete backups. It's free and you can backup to a SMB share on your NAS.
If you are just looking for file level backups, FreeFileSync can be set to save versioned copies of modified or deleted files.
I added 3 hard drives to the upper 5.25” drive bay using this. It works well but was hard to install.
I use a flashed LSi 9211-8i. Works like a charm just plug and play.
The card just stock is RAID only however flashing to IT mode makes it JBOD (just a bunch of disks)
I bought this one here http://www.ebay.com/itm/291641245650 it is pre flashed in IT mode. I actually am helping a co worker with unRaid and referred him to this card and works beautifully.
You will need SFF-8087 adapters which are about 13 or so on Amazon
I bought these https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000FBYS2U/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_4Zpyzb7G3Y8Z1
Why are you using a 6600K and aftermarket cooler if you don't plan to overclock? You could save a few bucks by going with the non-k 6600 and stock cooler.
Alternatively, you could look into the Xeon E3-1231v3 which is from the last generation (Haswell) but has hyper-threading and a higher passmark score for roughly the same price. The additional threads are really helpful if you ever want to looks into running VMs in unraid. I'm using this cpu with an ASrock H97M Pro4 mobo and its working great for unraid. I'm thinking about upgrading to a server motherboard and ECC RAM but I'm not sure if its worth it for myself. One note about the xeon, it doesn't have any graphics built-in which is fine for a headless unraid box but you'll need to throw a graphics card in temporarily for setup.
Why is your transcode folder in appdata but your config folder isn't?
Also you're missing the claim token.
Remove the container and image, delete the folders it's created and start again.
This fixed it for me. I had to open the console to the container and edit the init file they mention in the issue thread. There was no text editor installed so you may want to install vim or nano as well.
It doesn't by default. Go to the folders tab in the options, and turn on the advanced view.
Then set the '.nzb Backup folder' to whatever you want (down at the very bottom).
Shuck the My Books. WD's own website had 8tb My Books on sale for £151.99 last november.
You can look at https://pricespy.co.uk/computers-accessories/storage-media/hard-drives/external-hard-drives/wd-my-book-8tb--p3945501 but note some of the lowest prices are ex.VAT once you get to the actual listing.
I just listened to episode 3 of the Self-Hosted show where they mentioned something just like what you are looking for.
http://raneto.com/ - There is a docker available for Unraid by LSIO.
It doesn't use any database or anything, just reads straight up text files. Well, .md markdown files, but still text files!
[NoMachine](https://www.nomachine.com/] is the absolute simplest way of connecting to a remote desktop on a local network.
If you need to do this over the internet, there's some really good remote gaming apps that work very, very well as a remote desktop app, too. My personal favourite is Parsec.
I'm not sure whether the Raspberry pis have the power to receive 1920x1080 @ 30fps encoded in x264, though.
I'm using a Pi-KVM with ZeroTier installed.
Pi-KVM essentially gives me some functions of the IPMI console that enterprise server boards have, but through a Raspberry Pi. And since it's a seperate device, it can be moved to another machine whenever I want to manage another one.
ZeroTier makes basically the same kind of private network you might have used with LogMeIn Hamachi where it's containing only member devices in the default config.
In my case, my virtual network has my home computer, my server, the Pi-KVM, my laptop and my phone.
So, if something happens and the server didn't boot back up by itself, I connect to my ZT network, log into the Pi-KVM and trigger the power button.
Of course, that solution might need you to buy a RPi4 micro computer if you don't already have one. I know there are efforts to make it work on the third generation but I haven't tried it myself as I only have a fourth gen one.
Edit: Corrected a typo. My bad.
If you fancy giving it a go and don't have a raspberry pi, pm me, i can get you a $10 discount if you check out using google express... which means $25 with free shipping from Fry's (US). Good luck!

And my thread on r/datahoarder with similar questions:
If you're planning on running a torrent client, I'd suggest installing binhex's DelugeVPN container. You drop the ExpressVPN cert for your chosen server into a folder and turn on the VPN. From there you route traffic you want VPN'd to the IP:Port combination set up in the container, and it just works. I've had mine running for about a year with zero hiccups.
The motherboard has 8, and the HBA card adds 8 more.

I use one of these stuck on the back of my TV, with an inexpensive mini keyboard.
Works a treat, runs a full Win10 install, so I could even do light gaming/emulating on it, reasonably quiet (you'll only barely hear it in a 100% quiet room, and only from some angles).
I got this one just last week and it works well so far out of the box. I use the USB cable that comes with it too to monitor it in unraid dashboard. Let's me know how much watts everything is using and ect.
Sorry this happened. I don't have anything to solve the issue, but you should get a UPS (I use a Cyberpower UPS) and combine it with the NUT plugin and your server will gracefully shut down if there's a power loss to your home (won't protect you from other failures such as Motherboard, RAM, etc but those are less common then power outages).
Are you sure you are getting 100 mega BYTES per second through NordVPN? Thats 800Mbps, or nearly gigabit. Deluge is unusual in that it reports speeds in Bytes per second, whereas most other sources measure internet speed in bits per second. I'm guessing you are getting 100Mbps (bits) through NordVPN and 7MBps (Bytes) aka 56Mpps (bits) through Deluge. That doesn't strike me as unusual. I use DelugeVPN with PIA and have never seen more than ~8MBps reported in Deluge even though a speed test reports that my PIA bandwidth is more than that (generally 100-120mbps). There are other factors like decompressing when doing torrenting that can add additional limits to throughput.
Edit: saw your edit about having gigabit internet. So it is possible you are actually getting nearly gigabit through NordVPN, though that would really impress me. I also have gigabit download and do not get nearly that much through PIA.
Yes, that is very true... My Current board, the 2nd m.2 slot is shared with SATA port 2 so only one or other can be used.
I have gone the route of adding NVME drives into PCI-E slots
Personnaly, I bought an M.2 to SATA adapter
you are correct to use the full system draw, when unraid shuts down it well spin up all of your hdds. i have a apc 1500va, my supermicro w/ 8x8tb well get about 15-20 mins uptime to shutdown. i feel like that is almost good enough, but i would like to have had 25-30 min or better. also unraid has you covered on the shutdown!
Any AsMedia, Marvel, etc. SATA card will do.
This one on Amazon is a PCIe 2x card, should do fine for a low-end setup: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00AZ9T41M/ref=twister_B0721DXJHL?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
If you want something better, take a look at LSI cards, but that might be overkill for your needs.
How could we ever live without your tutorials u/spaceinvaderone !
Also, could you do a tutorial on writing custom LetsEncrypt subdomain template files for unpopular Dockers? Also, could you do a tutorial on setting up an outgoing VPN? I use NordVPN, and I'm not sure how to use it with your Deluge/VPN proxy tutorial (because the docker just suports PIA). FYI, NordVPN allows you to generate and download OpenVPN profiles for connecting to their servers, so if there is a way to use Deluge with an OpenVPN (outgoing) tunnel, I'd love to know.
Thanks again for all your hard work and countless hours of tutorials you make! I'm still learning the ins and outs of my unRAID server, and I'm almost always watching your YT channel for guidance.
Motherboards with more than 3 PCIe 8x/16x slots are rare because consumer processors that support more than 16 PCIe lanes are expensive, driving a smaller market. They also usually have specialized motherboard socket types. See the Intel Core i7/i9 X series or AMD Threadripper processors for example.
That said, SAS expanders don't need connectivity with the motherboard, just power. Save the slot and use something like this in an extra part of your case: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B073RBP3V6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
You can change the default port that the unraid web ui listens on in unraid settings. Then port forward that port to your unraid machine at the router level. I would make sure your root password isn’t the default and it’s something long and hard to guess. As always don’t reuse this password on any other site.
Alternatively you could try teamviewer into a vm running on your unraid machine. TeamViewer works on my work network without manual configuration.
Edit: if you’re accessing from work it’s likely that IT has blacklisted most ports. You can get a chrome extension like Private Internet Access (obviously you’d have to pay for their vpn) but you can set that up to run through port 443 and it should work in most situations. This is what I do from work.
I use Torguard. Works perfect for my use, which is basically a proxy server for some other dockers. I do not use it to download torrents. Torguard does do port forwarding. Speeds are excellent for me, basically I can saturate my 200mbps connection anytime. They can be pricey but I believe there is always a 50% off for life code, and when used on a 6 month terms is like $3 a month.
There are dockers with all popular torrent containers with vpn built in. Picking one of those will make your initial setup a lot easier.
OpenVPN is a standard, NordVPN does allow you to access it via open vpn. Go to this page and select a server to download the config file for open vpn.
Hey mate, the torrenting part and stuff with NordVPN is alright and you seem to get around with it, but the Plex part will not work simply because they do not offer Port-Forwarding. So any remote connection to the covered device will not be available.
On the other hand - having some script to ticker the VPN on or off might be the way to go (before closing the torrent client). As I tried - Team Viewer did work, since it uses one of the open ports (not sure which now). So we are kinda in a maze here, unless we ticker some points from inside the machine via the open ports, close the connection and then use the open ports on the machine.
Spaceinvader has done a huge service by creating a bunch of video tutorials on how to setup unRAID. Here is the delugevpn video instead of PIAs. After you have your VPN setup, you'll be using the privoxy built-into the container to run your services through the proxy. The default port is 8118.
Torguard has a torrent you can download that will tell you what IP address it sees in the status.
If it shows your home IP, something is wrong. If it shows the IP of the PIA endpoint, you're good.
they are different sockets. yours being socket 1155, the e3-1225 v3 being socket 1150.
Closest thing to your cpu would be Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2
I use Blue Iris, but if I was going to make that choice again today, I wouldn't do it. I thought it was going to come with a good support forum, but it turns out the people who run it are assholes.
The next time I set up cameras, it will be with Zoneminder, probably in a VM.
Super easy for end users and moderately secure: setup Ombi, protect it with LetsEncrypt, and have users login with their Plex.tv account.
Up your game a bit: setup Ombi, unable VPN server on unRaid, give VPN client to your users, configure VPN tunnel so that they can access only the Ombi IP:port when connected, and have then login with user/pass specific to Ombi.
For cloudflare I basically block everything outside of the uS and all known bots. I did whitelist uptime robot, though. Then on my firewall at home, pfsense, I opened port 443 only to Cloudflare's IP ranges
So, you can't hit my webserver without going through cloudflare, even if you know my direct public IP.
Might not be the right place for this, but after having issues with PIA I ended up switching to AirVPN for my binhex containers and have had no issues. After 1 year of solid service I just bought out 3 years during their Halloween sale. I’d recommend it if anyones on the fence or if your subscription is nearing its end.
https://linuxgsm.com/servers/ LinuxGSM might be more appropriate for COD 2, it supports a load of older games. You can run that in a VM pretty easily and their documentation is decent.
If you want to stick to using docker, they do have a docker container available: https://hub.docker.com/r/gameservermanagers/linuxgsm-docker/
I ran into a somewhat similar issue a couple days ago. After a bit of researching I found this https://github.com/sabnzbd/sabnzbd/releases and I notice it talks about external access and local ranges. My guess is Sab for some reason can't detect your local network. So in short I think you should be able to add 192.168.1.0/24 in sabnzbd.ini file under local_ranges to fix your issue. For the host settings I think 0.0.0.0 should still work at least that's how mine is setup. Here is a link to the wiki https://sabnzbd.org/wiki/configuration/3.3/general. Hope this helps.
I was unable to get High Sierra to boot with VNC video and gave up. I generated the USB installer using the spaceinvaderone guide and my roommate's Mac.
Here's the notes I gave my roommate on first attempt:
- Download High Sierra into the store app as usual (done?)
- use HD utility to erase a USB key on the Mac, HFS Extended (Journaled) GUID Partition Map
- use macdaddyio install disk creator, target same USB key
- download Clover https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/
- Run Clover to make Steve Jobs roll in his grave:
- Change install location: our USB flashdrive
- Install for UEFI Booting
- Install Clover in the ESP
- OSX APTIO FIX2
- Partition DXE 64
- Install to USB...
- In addition to the USB installer drive mounted on your desktop, a new volume called EFI is mounted to your desktop, open and navigate to EFI > Clover > kexts. Open the latest release in the list, I'm guessing it's 10.13, navigate into there. Unzip the folder FakeSMC.kext from the zip file attached and place the unzipped folder in that path.
- Finally, copy the downloaded Clover files and the HighSierra_Support_Files (unzipped) to the root of the USB installer drive (not the EFI image)
- Unmount the EFI image, then the USB key. Should be good to go.
Optional, probably not needed:
- A new volume called EFI is mounted to your desktop, open and navigate to Drivers64UEFI. Place the apfs.efi and HFSPlus.efi (attached) in same. I suspect that the current release of clover has done this already.
I then followed /u/spaceinvaderone's video install guide, fiddled with the BIOS VGA res, never got it to boot with video. Any tips? Roommate leaves with his Mac in 2 weeks but would love to get this working.
I think you'd want something like a KVM Console extender
You can use ProduKey to get the windows key out of the real computer to use in the VM.
Most modern linux distros boot without installing (ubuntu, mint, etc) and will run straight from the USB stick.
Alternatively, something like http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ has a ton of included tools as well.
Run this It will tell you if the memory itself is an issue. You can also look at the QVL list for your motherboard to see if the memory you're using is compatible with the motherboard.
You can also test by booting it with only 1 stick at a time, if it still hangs up with each stick individually then it's highly unlikely that the memory is the issue unless all of your memory is incompatible with the new motherboard but you would have to check the QVL.
Furthermore, system hangups can be caused by a lot of things and so far from what you said nothing conclusively points to the RAM as the issue. CPU, Motherboard, and PSU being brand new do not make them immune to issues. Brand new parts can have issues right from the factory, especially motherboards which is why there are constant bios updates for them to correct issues that were not found until after the manufacturing had begun.
Wrong. The limit applies to the user (or in case of anonymous download, the IP) who downloads the image, not who owns or pushed the image. To increase the limit, the downloading user needs to log in and/or have a higher tier account.
Grab Google Chrome portable (https://portableapps.com/apps/internet/google_chrome_portable) and put the proxy settings in that browser. Then fire up that Chrome browser whenever you need to go to that specific site.
Try making a backup (just to be safe), then change :preview to :develop or :latest. If you check their docs, it says that preview is depreciated now: https://docs.linuxserver.io/images/docker-sonarr
Based on Sonarr docs, it should convert the database from v2 to v3 on startup: https://sonarr.tv/#downloads-v3-docker
Don’t know who you’re talking about but it’s documented on the front page of sonarrs site. Using 2 file systems in the arrs is not intended. Names aren’t arbitrary when they force you to hard copy and paste when a single file system gives you hardlinks.
Correct. You need everything to tier under the same share. Having them on the same disk doesnt matter for docker. Docker doesn't see the disks for unraid. It see's what you mapped in your config. Take a look at the common pitfalls section from sonarr q/a: https://sonarr.tv/#downloads-v3-docker
> But to summarize: The best solution is to use a single, common volume inside the containers, such as /data. Your TV shows would be in /data/TV, torrents in /data/downloads/torrents and/or usenet downloads in /data/downloads/usenet.
Instructions to configure google for various applications can be found here:
Note this can get pricy, as you need a fairly expensive Google Workspace plan.
A much cheaper alternative to look into is jumpcloud: https://jumpcloud.com/
Can access on another desktop or server providing you have the pass key or file. Just unlock/read by unlocking using luks. https://gitlab.com/cryptsetup/cryptsetup
1 key for all of the array. But can have multiple keys and change keys. There are a finite amount of key slots. I forgot how many. Once you reach that limit you will have to remove keys to add new ones but I personally do not see a need for more than one since it’s array wide
You need to enter your username and password in the config, and then you need to download an OpenVPN config (https://windscribe.com/getconfig/openvpn) and save it as openvpn.ovpn in the appdata/deluge/openvpn folder.
WireGuard is very much branded as secure: https://www.wireguard.com/img/wireguard.svg
Also, from the front page of their website:
>It is currently under heavy development, but already it might be regarded as the most secure, easiest to use, and simplest VPN solution in the industry.
If it was me, I'd spin up a Windows 10 VM (Don't bother to activate just try it out), and make sure it can access your unraid share. The 2 tools I'd suggest for removing photo duplicates is duplicate cleaner by digital volcano https://www.digitalvolcano.co.uk/duplicatecleaner.html and if you want to remove duplicate photos that looks the same even with different file format, is Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder by mind gems https://www.mindgems.com/products/VS-Duplicate-Image-Finder/VSDIF-About.htm
You can have a look on r/photography and r/datacurator for info.
Veeam + Rclone. Veeam Agent creates an encrypted backup of Windows and Linux workstations to local and network storage. Rclone allows offloading Veeam backups to cloud storage. https://www.veeam.com/windows-cloud-server-backup-agent.html
Duplicati. If system backup is not needed but just data backup, Duplicati builds the 3-2-1 backup by creating a local, network and cloud copy of your data on a schedule. https://www.vmwareblog.org/single-cloud-enough-secure-backups-5-cool-cross-cloud-solutions-consider/
You can purchase a Google One membership and get a considerable amount of storage for cheap. But if you want a free option and already have unRAID, I'd look into Nextcloud.
I have been working with rclone recently (https://rclone.org/) and find it superior in just about every way to rsync, and that is coming from a 15+ year rsync loyalist. Worth checking out - there is a plugin to add rclone support to unraid.
I am using it for daily backups from my unraid to GDrive and it is working like a champ.
Not sure how to fix all your problems.. but to stop the NordVPN docker from auto starting you can turn the server off, remove the USB and plug into a working computer, navigate to , and open it in a text editor. There should be a value for something like DOCKER ENABLE or named similar, just change it from TRUE to FALSE, or ON to OFF. Forget the variable scheme right now.
Then put the USB back in and start the server! Make sure you don’t touch anything else on the USB because if it gets messed up then you can possibly lose your entire unRAID configuration. I would make a backup of the USB contents before doing anything else.
All this does is stop the docker functionality from starting until you go into settings in the admin page and re enable it. So you might have to somehow enable and quickly kill the NordVPN container before it can fully start… idk but good luck
EDIT: oh or you can just boot it into GUI mode with a monitor attached and do all the necessary config changes from there lol, would probably be easier
the best thing to do is to get a mikrotik Routerboard or install a RouterOS VM.
the OS supports NordVPN, check this link.
you can router all your traffic to the VPN service or a selected IPs through routing marks.

Do with this information what you will, but I would avoid all of them. ProtonVPN is easy to get up and running in BinHex containers. I would imagine other quality providers like Mullvad are the same.
My solution does not leverage UnRAID, simply to avoid complexity. I used my FireTV with NordVPN \connect to Canada] and watch my local games that way with [ on my laptop to the hotel TV.
Fractal Design Define R5 Case
Are you buying a DL325 or 345? 4 bays is not a lot.
The pcie riser for slots 1/2/3 on the DL38X and 1/2 for the DL36X both had a dual m.2 sata port on them.
Other than throwing an error for a non-hpe drive, you'll be fine.
I would recommend you do this though as you can get more drives per card:
Yes, I had to remove the backplate by using a heat gun (this is the one I used) and a screwdriver that can clear the 4 holes where the standoffs poke through from the back. Luckily for me, I had previous experience on SuperMicro boards so I was already comfortable doing this.
Below are some tips that I can offer:
I really don't know why mobo manufacturers choose to use adhesive but it is what it is. Also if you don't have a heat gun, I think you can do this successfully with a hair dryer.
Yes they do!
(I'm not advocating for this exact cable, I'm using it as an example of the style.)
I can't tell a difference in my setup, but maybe you can. I'm getting solid Gigabit to my Unraid box. The downside of these cables is that they typically contain thinner wires than the usual CAT5. I didn't buy the cheapest one I could have, because it had really thin wires. Try to buy the size you need. Cutting it and putting a new end on it won't be fun.
Also, look at the customer review pictures on this type of cable for creative ideas to conceal it.
great question! the end goal will be to get one of those fancy ultra widescreen monitors that has the speakers built in and it all goes thru the HDMI... but until then, i bought a USB CONTROLLED (not just USB POWERED) stereo speaker that i plug into the KVM. Since i use bluetooth for the keyboard, i plug the mouse and the USB speaker into the KVM switch and when i switch back and forth, the speaker and the mouse switch to the machine i'm using. Works like a charm!
Once again, since this was an experiment that i didn't want to commit too much money to until i knew it worked, i got this cheap guy off of amazon! It was actually hard to find a speaker that is usb CONTROLLED... tons of USB Powered once that use a standard audio jack for the sound part but not many that the audio goes thru the USB.
This one has a mute and volume buttons on the speaker itself and it works with Win10 and BigSur... even changes volume when i use the volume up and down keys on the keyboard in BigSur.
Bluetooth works flawless with BigSur... Wifi, not so much. I did find a thread on how to get the wifi working using the intel drivers but i haven't tried it out yet as i havent really had a need to get the wifi working.
I got this cheap switch off of amazon: cheap kvm
Like everything else, since i wasn't sure if it was going to even work, i bough cheap stuff just in case i couldn't get bigsur to work! Although it's all i really need. I plug the monitors, mouse, and usb CONTROLLED speaker into the kvm and got a bluetooth keyboard that you can link to multiple machines. works pretty well!
Depends on the capabilities of your router / firewall / gateway to the internet.
I use pfSense firewall which can route traffic to/from certain devices through a specific firewall adapter, in this case the VPN virtual adapter. My pfSense system is always connected to my Torguard VPN; if the connection to a server goes down, it will (I think) randomly choose another connection in a gateway group, where I have defined many different VPN connections to different Torguard servers (only connects to one at a time, though).
There are different ways to route the traffic; currently I'm using my core network switch for all internal routing, but that's a different subject. Lots of people set their pfSense (or other firewall) to do the routing for certain systems, such as VM's etc. You can also send traffic to/from docker containers on your unRAID system to the VPN or not.
I'm not sure about Wireguard, as I haven't tried it yet. It's similar to VPN, so should be able to be used the same way.
You really don't need a VPN for anything other than the container you use to torrent/download (Deluge, qBittorrent, etc.). Binhex makes some great versions of those particular containers that have built-in VPN functionality that you can just connect to your VPN account.
Plex (or anyone else for that matter) can't see the content you're streaming, so there's no concern from that perspective. Even if they could, they'd have no idea whether you pirated it vs ripped it from your own Blu-Ray library, etc.
Private Internet Access has always been the favorite, but they were bought by a lesser company and seem to be shifting out of favor. I'm considering Mullvad when my PIA subscription ends, but honestly - I have no issues with PIA and it's arguably the most popular/supported VPN, so probably a good place to start.
> I've been holding off because I haven't wanted it badly enough to buy and configure a raspberry pi for each set of speakers in my home.
I think what pushed me over the edge is that you can get a raspberry Pi 0 wireless and decent DAC for roughly $40. I'm a big fan of this little guy.
The software you proposed sounds awesome, though. I've been looking for an excuse to set up Home assistant, that this could just be it.
I use one of these in a 3.0x1 slot: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07ST9CPND
Most modern motherboards have open-ended covers on the x1 slots that allow you to put something pinned for more slots in and these JMB585 cards were the only actual 3.0 cards I could find when I was looking last year.
If you have an available m.2 slot, Amazon has sata exp cards for 5 and 2 ports. I got a 5 port and it works great
Dual m2, 6 sata and Ryzen support. Probably could find a less flashy equivalent if you wanted
Some good options for cards in the thread already. For about $50 this is what worked for me:
2x 8087 to 8482: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XPGGY9L?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
I would go with a 4 or 8 port SAS HBA in IT mode. This is the one I have with the same connectors:
It's not cheap, but it's rock solid, works with SATA drives, and is known to be compatible with Unraid.
It’s doing exactly what it should be doing. Ram Buffered is a map of the storage pages, so that your system knows where to go to get files faster.
The Cache is used for recent files that were in use, to make it faster when re-accessing them.
As your ram needs increase, then the cache flushes the oldest items, freeing up space for you.
I have the F5-221. Was on sale on Amazon for black friday for $288.
You have to take it apart to get to the USB drive. Wasn't too hard, but you need to take that one out as it has the Terramaster OS on there and put in a replacement drive. The drive should be small since it's a small form factor drive. Something like this size. https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-SDCZ33-016G-B35-Everything-Stromboli-Lanyard/dp/B00E0LCRE2/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=sandisk+flash+short&qid=1613679772&sr=8-6
I upgraded the RAM as well, so I have 10GB total. I also had to update the config file to load the GPU for transcoding, which I don't do much of at all, but just to have it there and also had to force the driver for the PWM fan.
Once it's all setup though it runs smoothly. I really like this NAS with unRAID on it.
thanks. It's a bit pricey but it gets me everything i needed.
Thanks for breaking it down like that.
What are your thoughts on this Syba or this LSI? I am not a big fan of eBay, trust Amazon a little bit more with shipping/returns.
I dont mind using the x16 slot since Im using a Ryzen APU and not doing anything too transcoding heavy. But your spot on, I do plan to go to a B450/B550 motherboard eventually which will have more X16 slots.
Currently, I'm using a Fractal Design Node 804 and I am running out of space. Can you recommend any cases that are compact but also offer 8+ drive space. I have been looking for the Lian Li PC Q26 but its not available anymore.
Unclear what model you are referring to, but the one I linked has user replaceable batteries. Here’s the official one:
CyberPower RB1290X2 Replacement Battery Cartridge, User Replaceable
Or you can buy cheaper 3rd party versions.
