    Weird network performance issue under Hyper-V

    Hahaha, yeah I know I know. "Starting" was a euphemism. Why not ESXi? Size of environment. If VMWare hadn't crippled the free version by not allowing API access I'd be all over that but I need to be able to do orderly shutdowns via a UPS and back VMs up with Veeam. That rules out ESXi as their...

    Weird network performance issue under Hyper-V

    Correction. It's not Windows defender. Went bare-metal and all is good. I'm starting to hate Microsoft's lack of QC.

    Weird network performance issue under Hyper-V

    I think I may have figured this out. Still doing checking but I think it's Windows Defender scanning the files and making CPU usage go nuts.

    Memtest86 8.2 and PowerEdge T140 with Intel Xeon E-2136

    I just recently got a couple Poweredge T140 servers in for a couple clients. One has an i3 8100, the other has a Intel Xeon E-2136. The Xeon one fails every memory test I throw at it with Memtest86 8.2. I've replaced the RAM with known good RAM - including the RAM from the other T140 and it...

    Dell H730/H740 drive compatibility

    What type of issues? I know not to mix and match SATA with SAS. What happens with SAS drives that are not Dell branded?

    Dell H730/H740 drive compatibility

    Yeah I run 3x R720's here with H710 controllers on the latest firmware and I'm using Intel DC3700 SSDs and Seagate Enterprise 8tb drives and the only prompts I get are that the drives aren't certified (not that I give a rat's backside). That said, someone on Reddit was mentioning that. Here's a...

    Dell H730/H740 drive compatibility

    Hey anyone know if Dell is back to blocking non-branded drives in their RAID controllers? I was reading something about them blocking consumer SSDs but was curious if they block enterprise drives like the HGST HC510. Any first hand experience one these two RAID controllers with non-Dell branded...

    Own 3x R720's and after working with these vs a bunch of HP hardware, Dell is such a drastic improvement!

    Supermicro 846 chassis noise level

    Anyone interested in a heavily modified 846 with a TQ backplane? If so, contact me. I consolidated my servers to some Dell R720's and as such have an 846 I gutted and put in a 120mm fan wall + modified for a standard PC power supply... Willing to let it go pretty cheap.

    Optane performance as a SLOG

    I did that last night and it still wasn't showing up. I'll reboot when I get back to the office and check again. I manually ran many of those benchmarks that were in your guide, @gea and I got MUCH better results with Optane. I'm thinking the problem is related to my 10G networking more than the...
