    4. Finally, you cannot have container station installed, and in case you have more than one network interface active, take a look at Q21 in FAQ

    That actually isn't a true statement. I have been running PMS on my NAS w/Container Station also present for months with no issues.

    Now there are some things I would recommend doing such as defining the LAN Network that help alleviate potential issues, but assuming your networking is properly configured (big assumption I know in most cases) Plex & container station can co-exist just fine.

    RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury 32GB 2 x 16GB DDR4-2666 PC4-21300 CL16
    GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 SC GAMING, ACX 2.0 (Single Fan), 6GB GDDR5
    UPS: CyberPower AVR1350

    I will add the do co-exist fine. PMS, container station, and virtualization station.

    The most important piece of the puzzle is the use of a Virtual Switch. When a V-switch is used, the IP is moved from the actual adapter to the outer edge of the V-switch. Doing so isolates the container station virtual adapters / net from the physical which is then mapped into the V-switch. The end result is a single, proper, IP for PMS to see.
