    ESXi 7.0 compatible RAID card that can connect to R710 backplane

    I have run FreeNas/Solaris based OSes with Passthrough and never had issues.. the only disadvantages is chicken/egg if using that storage as local Shared storage (i.e. ESXi has to be working correctly, then you have to have a local storage away from the raid card to use for FreeNas then boot...

    ESXi 7.0 compatible RAID card that can connect to R710 backplane

    So from what i see the backplane should be using a SFF-8087 type connector to connect from the Raid/HBA card. and the Perc 6/I Raid is using the older SFF-8484 with a converted SFF-8087 connector. So in theory you should be able to use a newer Raid card that uses SFF-8087 cables you might...

    wanted norco RPC-4224 or similar

    i do have a 4224 chassis with the upgraded 120mm fan slots, catch is im in colorado, and i would wonder what the cost of shipping would be. i have considered chopping/welding it up to make a JBOD unit out of it but im still on the fence

    VRTX and M630 woes

    i have heard stories of the midplane going bad before, i had a chat with a Dell Service Tech a few years back told him about my VRTX and he mentioned that it was common for them to go bad and he had replaced many.

    VRTX and M630 woes

    make sure there arent any bent pins inside the back of the blade board, cause if any are missing/bent and not connecting that would equal some bad stuff... the other possibility is that the backplane those connect into could be bad as well. Have you tried in different slots and how many PSUs do...

    VRTX and M630 woes

    howdy, i have a VRTX + M630s as well, but do not have the same issue, but i do also have all the components in my VRTX (CMC, SPERC, etc.) I would recommend getting a CMC as its very possible that the blades do not know how to really communicate to the underlying system as the CMC is the brain...

    [Newegg] ASRock Rack D1541D4U-2O8R mATX 8-core Xeon D-1541 mobo with SFP+ $179!

    I have the version with the 10GBe instead of the SFPs (wish i had the SFP Version!!!) FYI i have a P3700 and P3520 (2.5 models) running on those NVME slots with a converter. No issues there, i think the only downside is the PCIe Speed is limited to 1x based on the diagrams.
