Unraid OS 6.9.0-Beta30 is Now Available

6 9 1
IMPORTANT: This is Beta software. 
We recommend running on test servers only!

Changes vs. 6.9.0-beta29 include:

Added workaround for mpt3sas

For devices not being recognized with certain LSI chipsets. We created this file:


which contains this line:

options mpt3sas max_queue_depth=10000

When the mpt3sas module is loaded at boot, that option will be specified. If you add "mpt3sas.max_queue_depth=10000" to the syslinux kernel append line, you can remove it. Likewise, if you manually load the module via a 'go' file, you can also remove it. If/when the mpt3sas maintainer fixes the core issue in the driver we'll get rid of this workaround.

Reverted libvirt to v6.5.0:

In order to restore storage device passthrough to VM's, lbvert has been reverted to v6.5.0.

Other Bug Fixes:

Re-added the ast driver (Aspeed GPU driver). For those using these on-board graphics chips, primarily Supermicro, this change should increase the speed and resolution of the local console WebGUI.
