    Seagate XS7680SE70094 - IBM Part

    Hello everyone. I picked up one of these drives off Ebay and I can't seem to get it recognized by my SAS controller (LSI 3008 onboard controller on a Supermicro MB). During POST (while the controller scans the bus), the drive doesn't show up. Other SAS and SATA drives show up fine, including...

    WD 2TB M.2 SATA and Proliant X170R Gen 10

    Hi everyone. I'm trying to install a couple of these SATA SSDs into the built in M.2 riser on a Proliant X170R node for an ESXi datastore. It works and is recognized, but after a few minutes of operation, iLO5 reports that sensor 60 (AHCI HD) reports a high temp situation and the server shuts...

    Current router on its way out... possible replacement?

    Is one access point enough to cover your home? Is it enough to handle all your wireless clients? You might benefit in adding an additional access point and theoretically splitting all your wireless clients between two APs and therefore, two separate gigabit connections.

    Best way to update bios/firmware on HP DL380 Gen9?

    Why not just mount the .ISO as virtual media thru the iLO and boot off of that? During post, hit F11 for the boot menu and select iLO virtual media. If you go into Intelligent Provisioning you can also upgrade the firmware as long as the server has an internet connection. Truth be told...

    Recommend a vSAN all flash cache drive?

    Hi everyone. I'm looking for four vSAN cache drives for my cluster but I'm having trouble finding something affordable. Optane p4801x is too expensive. I have 4 nodes with 6 SATA SSDs (Samsung 960 Gig) each. I'm looking to run ESXi 7.0u2 or higher. Its doesn't have to certified as this is...

    ASRock Rack PAUL IPMI Card

    I was able to make them work on non-HP/Compaq machines, including the power on/off. You were stuck with the "video card" on the Lights Out board, however, which just plain sucked. I think the Lantronix Spider was your best bet for awhile, but I think that's discontinued. There are several...

    Long distance USB?

    I have one of these to extend the Xbox One Kinect from my TV to my A/V rack. I have the 40 foot version which doesn't appear to be available anymore. It's pricey, but has worked for years (runs in-wall up into the attic and over to my A/V rack). Kinect is a USB 3.0 device and very sensitive...
