    Struggling with Mellanox ConnectX-3 in FreeNAS

    Show media on the 6650 (I plugged the other QSFP module into 1/2/1 to see if it would be detected): Port 1/2/1: Type : 40GBASE-Passive Copper Port 1/2/2: Type : 40GE-Passive Copper Port 1/2/3: Type : 40GE-Passive Copper Port 1/2/4: Type : 40GE-Passive Copper

    Struggling with Mellanox ConnectX-3 in FreeNAS

    Yes, this is one of the things I tried. The ports do come up. If I run ifconfig -vvv mlxenX (0 through 3), each reports the DAC. The info between the working port and the 3 non-working ports is the same (other than serial numbers): root@XXX[~]# ifconfig -vvv mlxen0 mlxen0...

    Struggling with Mellanox ConnectX-3 in FreeNAS

    BTW, the ICX 6650 has the licenses installed and confirmed they are active. Let me know if any output from switch or FreeBSD commands would be helpful.

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

    I think you could get away with plastic for sure as long as you have a shelf under it. I used the following under mine since the official rails are super expensive...

    eBay: Full 4U Supermicro System - $350 + Ship

    I'll probably need a couple more weeks to move stuff over and figure it out. I'll keep you posted. Wow, I totally forgot about Microcenter in Boston. I don't go there often, but I do fly down to Houston frequently, but I stay aware from the one there so I don't buy more crap I don't need! Do...

    eBay: Full 4U Supermicro System - $350 + Ship

    I'm in Cumberland. I always get giddy when I see someone else from Maine since it seems nobody lives here! :D I didn't know about MIT Flea, but now... dammit! Now another way to spend money! I have a couple 4U cases (one Norco and one Rosewill) that I was going to take to the recycler...

    eBay: Full 4U Supermicro System - $350 + Ship

    Just thought I'd mention I'm also in Maine. I buy toys from California, so maybe there's an opportunity to group buy something someday. :) I'm about 20 minutes outside of Portland if you're close by. I also have a bunch of equipment in my basement that I eventually need to sort and give away if...

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

    I marked mine with a note on it not to sell (never intend to) once Fohdeesha helped me out. I don't want to put him in the fire for helping us out. Suggest others do the same...

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

    Thanks for the tip, Zervun. You're certainly on point that they aren't cheap! I'll have to hunt around, but at least I have the correct part number now.

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

    Does anyone know where to get the 4-post mounting kit for the ICX6650? I've looked on eBay, but I can't find anything there. Google fails me as well.
