  1. I get this error with my docker container anyone know a fix I can't connect to console and when I do a docker exec on the container it does this,

    OCI runtime exec failed: exec failed: container_linux.go:346: starting container process caused "exec: \"/bin/bash\": stat /bin/bash: no such file or directory": unknown

    I am using the golinks app

    It works for some other apps like home assistant.

  2. honestly you don't need to spend 2500 on this. you could easily spend 1500 and have a very similar experience. Unless you are working with MASSIVE 3d files or endcoding your streams into lots of different formats there is no reason to spend this much. It might be (future proof) but besides those reasons I would get something like a 2070 with a 3900x and spend the money else where. or if you really don't like money you can just give it to me ;)

  3. Hi, I am new to unraid and can't figure out how to install Mayan EDMS to a unraid docker container that gets access to a share.

     

    I am trying to compare mayan edms to paperless project but I can't seem to figure out how to set it up. I tried following this tutorial but I am not sure how to setup a new container that is not apart of a template on unraid.

    https://docs.mayan-edms.com/chapters/docker/install_docker_compose.html#docker-compose-install

     

    any help is greatly appreciated. Sorry if this is a "noob" question but I am kinda stumped

  4. This is my first time setting up a home server and I have a few questions on how exactly I should set it up.

     

    I have 2 1tb raid one ssds meant to store the vm os's and have have 4x4tb hdds mean to store all of my files.

    I want to setup a samba file server but not sure the best way to go about it, I have a few docker containers and applications I want to access this file share such as plex, mayan edms and a few others so how should I set it up to allow it to access the same files. Should i install samba on the root proxmox instance? or should i put it all into a vm and do it from there.

    You can use the hdds or nvme drives for ssd storage aswell, or the boot drive. You can pick to tell proxmox to store isos on almost every type of storage.

     

    Id use zfs for those raid arra, lots of nice features.

    So when i make my zfs pools I can store both vms and isos on the same pool?

  6. So i am getting ready to deploy my first home server and I am planning on using proxmox and I have been watching a lot of tutorials on it.

     

    Here is what i have for storage

     

    1 120gb SSD for Proxmox Boot

    2 1tb nvme ssds in raid 1 for vms

    4 4tb hdds for nas storage in raid 10

     

    From what I can tell you need a seperate drive to upload ISO's too for vms but is there a way for me to have a seperate partition or something on my 2 1tb raid 1 ssds for uploading isos? or what is my best option.

    Plex and GPU acceleration doesn't work on FreeNAS.

     

    Even if that isn't relevant for you anymore, anyone else reading this thread may come across your posts and think that AMD is the right choice for a FreeNAS / Plex server and they should know that they need to dig deeper before making choices.

    I am not using freenas anymore and ryzen and my motherboard supports iommu so gpu passthrough is something I can do for my plex vm. AMD is probably not the best choice for a server (unless your going epyc) But ryzen does support a lot of the same virtulization tech that intel does. a better option would be used server parts. But from what i can tell AMD can work and does work for what I am planning to do with it.

    Just quoting so that you see this.

     

    I note that you keep picking AMD Ryzen CPUs, but you should look into the way that FreeNAS/Plex work as a media server.  While I know they support QuickSync for hardware acceleration, I don't know whether they do or not for AMD - looking on their site is a ballache, and the only time they mention AMD is in relation to GPUs and that requires a windows machine or qnap.

     

    You should also look very carefully at what intel CPUs support what level of encoding, and look at what level of encoding you need.  QuickSync has been around awhile and the earlier the CPU the fewer levels of encoding support it will have.

     

    I am pretty sure I am forgoing freenas but I also will have a 970 gpu in the system for hardware acceleration. And i don't see the plex server getting hit with more than 2 people. and we only have 1 4k display in the house so I don't see much of a problem with that. And if the 970 isnt enough I have a 1070 i could pull out of a machine. Plus the plex server isnt going to get that much use as it is more build for a nas over a plex media server.

    Fair enough - that will simplify the setup overall.

    To be fair, it's not really just "one click" - even the plugins (which are really just pre-configured jails or containers) still require some setup.

     

    You can easily do Plex on Proxmox - it just won't be a plug-in. The easiest way to do it would be to run a VM or a Container (a container is kind of like a VM but it shares resources and system files with the host).

     

    Doing a VM allows you to use whatever OS with Plex that you're most familiar with - Windows, Linux (any distro, Ubuntu, etc), heck, you could even use a FreeNAS VM if you really wanted.

     

    As for the cloud backups - you can do that too with containers or VM's - it just depends on which cloud backup service you were wanting to use (eg: BlackBlaze).

     

    There are loads of guides for both Plex and cloud backup for Proxmox, as well as for Linux and Windows (as VM's).

     

    Personally I run my Plex Server on a Windows VM because it's simply more familiar to me, and it allows easier troubleshooting.

    There's really no need to have them separate. No need at all.

     

    For starters, Proxmox can create network shares, and therefore at a basic level is both a Hypervisor and a NAS. On top of that, being a hypervisor allows you to run a VM. The VM itself can be your NAS.

     

    One possible setup is creating your RAID pool in Proxmox via ZFS, then creating a VM like Ubuntu or Windows, and giving it a huge chunk of your pool. The VM then just sees that chunk as if it's just a big HDD.

     

    That way you can then use the VM as your NAS and it gives you better or more familiar control over it.

    Also what would be the best auto backup software for windows/ubuntu similar to windows file history. (windows for my parents, ubuntu for me)

    Thanks for the info, When you say proxmox can create network shares. How recommended is that. Right not i have 4 x4tb drives in a raid 10 for 8tb of usable storage which I want 100% of that to be dedicated to a nas. And as of right now I want plex and auto cloud backups to it. Which would be a better way to do it. Make a proxmox network share or pass the harddrives into a vm and manage them that way? I assume the vm route means I could have all the samba. plex, and backups in one vm. But from what I have read passing vdisks into vms is not as performant. I don't care about getting 100% performance as I only have a 1gigbit network and I probably wont even max out the drives ever but how much of a performance hit does that stuff take (if any). (I also have 2 1tb ssds which will be used for other vms)

    Just to clarify:

     

    Both Proxmox and FreeNAS support ZFS. I run a FreeNAS VM because ESXi is a Hypervisor first and foremost and doesn’t natively run ZFS. 
     

    in terms of drives. 
     

    You’ll need a drive for your base OS (in this case, whatever Hypervisor you use - ESXi, proxmox, etc). In a corporate environment this would usually be a hardware RAID1 array. You can use a USB drive if you want. I typically avoid doing that because they are less reliable than a HDD or SSD, but many people do it and have no problems. 
     

    Also if you use the FreeNAS VM’s ZFS pool to host more VM’s, it gets a little complicated, since you’ll have to “pass” that storage back to your Hypervisor (proxmox or ESXi). Usually this is done via iSCSI LUNs. 
     

    This means your FreeNAS VM has to boot up first before any other VM can start. 
     

    If you want to do this to learn FreeNAS that’s fine, but it doesn’t make much sense to do when using Proxmox. The primary reason to use FreeNAS is ZFS and Proxmox already does ZFS. Hosting your VMs on a FreeNAS VM managed ZFS pool makes zero sense if you can just host those VMs on the Proxmox managed ZFS pool. 
     

    You CAN use Proxmox for VM storage, and use FreeNAS as your general purpose NAS storage though. 
     

    Is there a particular reason you’re so focused on using Proxmox if you’re going to run a FreeNAS VM anyway? Learning ESXi is going to be way more useful as a SysAdmin - though knowing Proxmox too is valuable as less people know it. 

    Thanks, What i am thinking of doing is just ditching freenas and running everything within proxmox and figuring out how to setup all of the things I need on their own. The reason why I was attached to freenas because it makes it really easy to add plex and encrypted cloud backups. (basically one click). In a perfect world i would have a hypervisor server and a nas server but I don't have the budget for 2 servers so I wanted to combine them.

    Not really. You can do zfs encryption on the host, and you can setup a container for plex as well(its nice to keep it separated).

     

    I don't see a reason to run freenas here at all, and this would make it much simpler and easier to work with

    As said earlier in the thread because of IOMMU groupings it might not be possible to pass the drives into multiple vms. unless a container doesn't count not entirely sure

  13. I was rewatching some of linuses old server content and I couldn't help but notice these 2 people look really freaking similar

     

     Brett kelly (2:30)

     

    and this guy (around 14:00 is a good timestamp)

     

    Bit taller and bigger build but I thought these people were the same for a sec.

    An HBA is a Host Bus Adapter - it's basically a fancy term for SAS Expansion Card. SAS is the "enterprise" version of SATA. Technically SAS is backwards compatible with SATA (meaning you can use SATA Drives on a SAS system). SAS drives are not compatible with SATA ports though.

     

    HBAs cannot create RAID arrays. It just passes the disks directly to the OS. HBAs are preferred for software RAID systems like ZFS, Storage Spaces, etc.

     

    A RAID Card has an actual RAID Processor on board - usually with onboard RAM and a little battery. These cards can create RAID arrays at the hardware level, and then the OS just sees the RAID volume.

    You can have one server that does both. Your "NAS" can simply be a VM if you want. Typically you would have a RAID Card, and just pass a big chunk to your NAS OS (Windows Server, Linux, etc) to share out network shares.

     

    You can also get creative - I run FreeNAS as a VM, and I have an HBA connected to a bunch of drives. The drives are passed directly to FreeNAS so it acts as if I was running a bare FreeNAS box.

    So what I think I am going to do is run proxmox (maybe esxi but I am leaning towards proxmox) and pass an entire hba card into a freenas vm and then use my 2 m.2 1tb drives in a xfs raid 1 for all of my other vms. Not sure your familiarity with proxmox but I think the same would go for esxi I have the 2 tb ssds that Ima put in a raid 1 would I install proxmox on those ssds or should I install it onto another ssd or usb stick?

    Ok, but don't forget you have on-board PCIe/nvme devices that might share groupings with certain slots. The top x16 is usually on its own, but not always. It's an annoyingly undocumented thing that griefs AMD chipsets in particular.

    Well i'll hope for the best. I saw a video on craft computing that allowed him to pass through the individual drives from the hba card instead of the actual hba card. Is this still using IOMMU or is it something else? How do you know if a board does IOMMU or IOMMU groupings. this is my board https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/SocketAM4/PRIME_X570-P/E15829_PRIME_PRO_TUF_GAMING_X570_Series_BIOS_EM_WEB.pdf

    You can, as already mentioned - but it might be better to pass through the whole controller if you must use FreeNAS, unless you have non NAS disks on the same controller?
    It's odd, I just had to do exactly what you wanted today, for a single disk - I'm waiting on a new SFF8087 to SATA cable, so temporarily passed a drive through from the motherboard controller, while the rest were on half of a SAS card.

    But for the most part, it is indeed better to set up the physical disks on the hypervisor, and allocate virtual ones to your VMs. Just be aware that ZFS on top of RAID does not play nice! If you go ZFS, put your controllers in IT mode and let ZFS handle it all in software.

    So i just bought a HBA card (https://www.amazon.com/SAS9211-8I-8PORT-Int-Sata-Pcie/dp/B002RL8I7M/ref=as_li_ss_tl?keywords=SAS9211&qid=1577977693&sr=8-1&linkCode=sl1&tag=craftcomputin-20&linkId=ef0870a4aafb2f7b0e72e5765f068e62&language=en_US)

    But I am not 100% sure that my mobo supports the pcie pass through. I know the ryzen cpu does but I guess it's a gamble on if it is going to work. I have 2 other drives (m.2) which I am going to run in a raid 1 for all of my vms.

    why run freenas at all? You can setup a zfs share on the host, so the main point of freenas is removed. THen just run a conatianer for stuff like smb shares.

    What would the difficulty of adding things like plex and encrypted backup? Freenas makes it really easy to set that stuff up how would I go about doing that with proxmox and containers?

  18. 22 hours ago, Electronics Wizardy said:

    Depends on your goals. Normally the host will have a filesystem and give virtual disks to the vms

     

    Also why do you want to passthough disks? Normally its better to setup raid and stoarge on the proxmox host, then passthough the virtual disks to the vms.

    From what i've read and heard sending virtual drives to freenas kills preformance. In an ideal world I would have 2 servers and Just have freenas run on one of them and a hypervisor on another but I don't really have a budget for that.
