    I don't mean to sound repetitive, but can you make changes in BIOs other than the PW?

    Direction for pfSense with ICX6610 and Unifi - how to DHCP and DNS

    I've seen references to having one's switch do DHCP relay. Is this what's best for my proposed set up? If so, is there a post showing something similar for a vlan (or vlan - unifi) setup? I've never tried to set up such a relay. I'm new to the ICX66110 as well.

    Direction for pfSense with ICX6610 and Unifi - how to DHCP and DNS

    I thought that's what I tried. It was quite stable on the main network (vlan ID 1), but hit or miss on the other vlans. It's easy enough to try again. This time I'll ask for help with the trouble shooting. It was my first try with pfSense, and I kept thinking I had a configuration wrong...

    Direction for pfSense with ICX6610 and Unifi - how to DHCP and DNS

    How did folks handle DNS? That was the bigger issue when I tried the set up. I don't know if I'm correct, I'm a relative neophyte, but I think I got DHCP working (ish), but I could never get DNS to work consistently on all the vlans. I got the impression, DHCP is not stable as well, but I...

    Direction for pfSense with ICX6610 and Unifi - how to DHCP and DNS

My issue is this, when I...

    Layer 3 Switch w/ PFSense

    I just found this thread. I was new to pfSense and Vlans a few weeks ago when I tried to set up a pfSense based multi Vlan network. I kept failing at DHCP and some DNS issues. I thought I was at fault for not configuring pfSense correctly (in a way still true, I didn't know pfSense couldn't...

    Optane NVMe for Slog/ Pooldisks or All-in-one via vdisk on OmniOS

    Gea, As you suggested, I've switched to Solaris 11.4 AIO. I'm a bit of a newbie to ESX and Solaris, do you have a how to on what parameters you used for the vdisk SLOG and the L2ARC? Is the exact provisioning important in ESXi? Thanks

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

    A word of thanks to fohdeesha. I bought an ICX 6610, and three MCX354A-QCBTs. I followed the guides and was able to get rid of two Quanta switches and 7 Poe injectors. Now, I also have a 40GBe link to my ESXi server. This is the best deal I've seen in a long time! Thanks for the great work!

    Vlan persistence in Solaris 11.3

    I think I understand. I'll play with it and see if I get it going. If not, I may seek an example if you know of a site that's outlined a similar set up. Thanks
