    eBay advice: Selling a Dell R930 4x E7-4850 v3 + 4x 1100w [no RAM no HDDs]

    As a business buyer, and someone who puts aftermarket servers in all the time as DR or replica servers, the target market for that server is VERY small. Most of my mid size businesses who would be interested in used servers because of budgets wouldn't need a server that CPU powerful...

    Leaving Ubiquiti finally. Had enough. Anyone use either the Meraki Go or Aruba Instant On competitors?

    We use these for access level switches and AP's. I love the single pane of glass for those. Does anyone regularly use the similarly priced Meraki and Aruba offerings?

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Can you run both an I and an E power supply at the same time? I'd like to switch from I to E, not sure if the switch will allow that for 30 seconds while I swap them. @fohdeesha Do you know?

    How many VM's? We've found that the ROBO license works well for low count VM clusters.

    Anyone have the Equallogic Type 10 new firmware? I just upgraded from Type 4 to 10 to get 10Gbit, but the controllers came with ancient firmware.

    NewEgg Open Box Sale - Lots of Server Gear

    Holy cow was this a good link. I got a TON of Sonicwall gear for insane prices that wasn't actually Open Box, and a heap of fairly large APC's. Insane pricing.

    ESXi 6.0 GPU Passthru + Hw Virtualization

    My USB boot drive crapped out and I had to re-install ESXi and import the vmx files. Prior to the crapout, I had my workstation running perfectly with a K2200 GPU passed thru and HW Virtualization enabled (for nested Virtualbox, Bluestacks, etc) Now I cannot for the life of me get it to work...

    Best NAS software as VM guest to host iSCSI SAN

    Hence my need for a frontend. My SAN doesn't have SMB/CIFS. It's an enterprise SAN, so does offer cache and cache protection and a BBU. So yes, I was simply looking for an easy *nix frontend to share out an iSCSI san via SMB/CIFS.

    Best NAS software as VM guest to host iSCSI SAN

    This is a specific re-use case of an existing 40TB SAN that we already own. I'm very familiar with ZFS on HBA based systems. ZFS has all kinds of issues when there's lots of layers in between (SAN / Cache / datastore is alot) I specifically don't want Windows for virus / randsomware...

    This is an already existing iSCSI 10G SAN, I just need some sort of frontend on it to make it SMB / CIFS capable.
