    Dell VRTX questions

    Nice. I'm always a bit jealous of the 10 gig switch finds.

    A1SRi-2758F - No disk emulation set in IPMI Web GUI?

    I think I did get it to work, but it was just random, and I don't really remember what the fix was. I did everything I could think of and eventually something just worked. Using a super simple user account, a super simple password (think something like abc123), hostnames, IP addresses...

    Ultimate Home Data Center

    So why does this look like a house on the outside, is it for security through obscurity?

    Cross-flashing Dell RAID firmwares to alternate devices with only a .rom file.

    I do have a SPERC8-e card I can throw into a spare rig and dump firmware from, provided there's commands to do that stuff in megacli and what not. Haven't done any flashing in a while so I'm not immediately aware of the capabilities.

    Cross-flashing Dell RAID firmwares to alternate devices with only a .rom file.

    There are countless guides out there for cross flashing traditional Dell PERC cards to the more vanilla firmwares for many of the older and newer SAS2 and 3 chipsets. However, I'm looking to try and cross flash the firmware of a specialized adapter, specifically the Dell Shared PERC 8-External...

    Dell R730xd with PCIe Extender for U.2 NVMe

    There's an increase in the default PWM fan cycle when you install this enablement kit, isn't there? I've been told that the minimum fan % goes up to about 38%. Have you observed this?

    R730XD fan noise and SSDs, not a "how to fix thread", looking more for experiences.

    Do you know which iDRAC/LC version they're on?

    R730XD fan noise and SSDs, not a "how to fix thread", looking more for experiences.

    I have an opportunity to get a few of these but did a little bit of research and learned a later iDRAC release(s) made it so that unvalidated SSDs can cause an increase in fan speeds. I'm aware there are IPMI commands to alter it, but I don't want to mess with that. It just ends up being another...

    Looking for Dell M830 blades

    None on ebay for a reasonable (for home use) price, was hoping someone on here might have a couple they're looking to part with. Barebones preferred but willing to take config'd machines for a reasonable price. 1.8" or 2.5" version okay. US50

    Dell R630 10-bay (SATA/SAS/NVME) /w 2022 warranty read description $300, x2 1.2TB ioScale PCIe SSD, x2 Intel P3700 400GB U.2 NVMe SSD

    Yeah that's fine - however the main problem as usual with these is I don't have any boxes for it. I can take it to a FedEx and have them box and pack it if that works though as part of the cost.

    HP UPS T1500 G4 - how to get fans to turn off?

    These were running silently for a while and then I unplugged all my stuff and did some re-arranging and now the fans on 2 of my units are running. I forgot if there's something I can do to get them to turn down or do I just have to wait forever basically? Fans cut off maybe when the battery...
