The parts manual description implies that the RAID key and DIMM are optional; to enable hardware RAID.
I think you need to make sure that the BIOS mass storage is set for IT/IR mode, then use LSI 2208 software to configure, but I'm not sure...
I don't know of specific "quiet" profile, but it is a standard Intel s2600GZ/GL motherboard;
I have one myself, but it lives in basement. There is a reduced noise profile, not sure how much...
Presuming you are just doing gigabit between the POE switch and the "rest of network", use a couple of SFP-RJ45 converters and put some fiber in between the camera setup and the rest of network
There are similar...
1: I believe you can use LSI Storage Administrator to check link speed, or storcli can probably pull it as well. I can't remember if those work with that controller specifically
2: Does it matter which slot of the DS the drives are in? Internally there are 4 connectors, each running 6...
I just pasted the link, it must be magic!
I personally run dual 2650 v2, I found them to be a good balance between cost and performance, but for an extra $50 it is probably worthwhile to double your cpu power; you won't be able to get a pair of 2697v2 for $50 anytime soon.
Intel S2600GZ/GL is also a good series that does E5 V1/V2, readily available updates
Here is a 1 U version, looks like it has the CX-3 dual 40/56gb card as well
I ran one of these with an external HBA to a storage shelf...
Thinking out loud:
1: I would think that plugging downstream port of device into a VLAN tagged port, directing that VLAN to AP ports, and telling APs that VLANx=SSID Y is pretty simple. This VLAN would not need any routing or access to PFsense, it should only need to exist on the switch and...
you want the sandwich mount
It has a vesa mount on both sides, and the tiny will slide in and can be screwed in to secure it.
Really convenient except harder to get at the usb ports.
