    An insane idea for temperature control

    Crazy/Insane is where most of us live on here. :D Did you ever follow through with this? Lots of people do fan swaps to lower the sound level. I have done that but when you have multiple devices even the quiet hum adds up. I personally wouldn't do rocks/blocks or water/oil jugs. Consider...

    Napp-it Virtual Machine Memory Usage Critical

    I am on Server 2016 Essential. I came across this article om SMB's in windows. Should I consider following the instructions to disable SMB1 to enable SMB2/3? How to detect, enable and disable SMBv1, SMBv2, and SMBv3 in Windows

    ESXi 6.7u3, Napp-It AIO, & Tuning

    You have a very similar build to me. Gea answers a number of your questions that I asked him over the last month or two. https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/napp-it-virtual-machine-memory-usage-critical.26714/ I dedicated 40gb of ram per Gea's suggestion to Napp-it and since I...

    Napp-it Virtual Machine Memory Usage Critical

    Everything has been going well. I am not entirely sure I have my vmx3 setup correctly since vcenter in 6.7 is so different from 5.5 which I knew how to use. I am missing an IP for some reason...I may have to delete it all and rebuild the vmkernals and switch. Anyway, I click logs just for the...

    That reply helped me figure out that NFS was actually defaulted off still. Connected! Thank you Gea

    Napp-it Virtual Machine Memory Usage Critical

    I have been able to successfully map my windows 7 to NFS. I am struggling to get my vCenter to connect to the NFS share. I want to host my future VM's on the NFS. I keep going back to the idea that my vmkernal/vSwitch are set up incorrectly. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong? The only...

    I guess that solves that. I am not about to try to build my own driver from another linux driver.

    With CopyOnWrite, I shouldn't miss the power loss feature that slog would offer me. In the last 5 years, I have only lost power twice for an extended period since I have a backup power supply. I want to test the read/write speed of the Iodrive2 vs my striped mirrored WD blacks. Which test is...

    I have to say, I am really excited about this. Even though this is all new to me, Napp it is very well organized. Thank you for the help with the raid 10 creation. Would 40gb of ram be better than doing arc/slog or in addition to?

    If I create a pool from 4 disks as vdev mirror, does it automatically stripe them? Or do I need to make 2 drive mirrors and stripe them in the next step? I am fumbling my way through this. I made 2 - 2 drive mirrors figured out how to upgrade the zpool to 5000.

    Napp-it Virtual Machine Memory Usage Critical

    I have a couple of VM's (Pihole, PFsense, Docker, Windows Server, file server, steam). The main thing I was going to try out the new Windows Server 2016 or 2019 (whatever the new one is that sort of replaced Server Home). I like having domain/roaming profiles so I can just jump on. I don't...

    Is there a recommended ram setting? This is on my Esxi1 Box in my signature. I haven't setup anything yet. New to this, I have to go through your step by step next, which is my plan today.

    I solved it, though I am not sure what did it. I increased boot drive to 60gb and ram to 8gb
