Let's start by saying that if I'm in the wrong forum please let me know so I can ask this question in the right place.
This is the first time building a home server and I would like it to be a file server, plex, and home assistant machine. Is there an OS that would best be suited for this...

I currently have a Gaming Desktop and an R710 home media/NAS/lab server.
The other day I was looking at my setup and considering my power usage when an abstract though occured.
I currently use my desktop more for watching my media that I do for actually playing games but still like to fire up...
A Reminder: The other way of getting the same at $79.99 is subscribing to Plex newsletter and waiting (could be months)
Some of Plex Pass benefits include LiveTV DVR, offline viewing, no cost of Plex clients, and Hardware support for transcoding videos (Intel QuickSync and Nvidia NVENC)
Hey Guys first time posting on the forum,
I've recently decided to build a dedicated Plex Server and NAS instead of piggy backing off my gaming rig so I wanted some advice. The last time I built a computer was about 5 years ago so all my knowledge about what is best to buy is very out of date...

First post here, so here it goes.
I'm building my first home server this week, mostly for Plex. I've built many PCs but never a server grade machine.
So, my options for W10 OS install is my 64GB Satadom or Toshiba 1TB m.2 NVMe.
Is there an easier one to load onto via Rufus (USB)?
Do I need...

Good day everyone!
I am looking to possibly purchase a new server to replace my Dell R710 running FreeNAS.
Right now all my bays are full and there isn't much more I can do to expand the storage or add SSDs or NVME for caching etc.
I am looking at potentially purchasing a SuperMicro server...
Hello, I'm having a bit of trouble with this workflow and was wondering if anyone would be able to help me troubleshoot. There were several threads I came across, but this one is the closest to what I'm experiencing. I'm trying to install and boot from Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS amd64 on my NVMe...
I'm needing some help here as I've been putting this project off for way too long.
I have a 5+ year old i7 based HP workstation running Windows 10 that I've been using as a catch-all server for all of the random home server tasks that I need. It is running Plex, Milestone Xprotect...

Hello. I’m looking at building a new UnRAID server, to replace my current SAN, an old HP P4300g2, that I have outgrown. The box will mainly handle Plex streams, 3-5 at a time, and ideally be able to handle 4K transcodes as well. Additionally, it will host a file server as well. I have...
I'm selling my FreeNAS server. I built it a couple months ago. Very little usage. I'm in the process of moving and need to get rid of some of my machines.

Was going for a FreeNAS build with Plex Plugin. I wanted something pretty compact, quiet, with hot swap bays. I plan to use it mainly as a Plex Media Server with remote file access. IDK if the SAS/SATA cables are right to use with the MOBO or not, or if the case comes with cables that will...
I currently have a DIY, do-it-all, server built at home that acts as a domain controller, Hyper-V host and storage server (an absolute mess of roles, hence the need to sort out proper replacements now I have some money burning a hole in my pocket).
This machine is housed in a 24 bay...
My current build:
SuperMicro X9DRL-IF (ATX Form Factor)
2x Xeon 2660
Ubuntu Server 16.04.2
(I also have a spare 6x3TB I want to use again)
This is stuffed into a full ATX tower with no more room to grow.
Every 3-4 months I'm hoping to add 3x8TB to the build.
This build has...
