    Distributed storage, but not redundant

    Not sure this is the right spot for this, but at work, we are migrating our lab ESXi hosts from local storage to an IP-SAN (finally) and I want to repurpose their local storage to cold storage for things like lab machine backups, customer database backups, etc. Is it possible to set up a...

    m.2 PCIe adapter in Supermicro x9 motherboards?

    I actually went back something like 4 versions trying to get bifurcation working :(

    m.2 PCIe adapter in Supermicro x9 motherboards?

    Is anyone able to get the x16 slot on an X9DRH-7F to bifurcate? I don't even get an option to switch it from x16 to x4x4x4x4 right now :(

    NVMe boot with SuperMicro X9DA7 & X9DRi-F

    3.3 lists it as an option, but you can't actually split it :(

    NVMe boot with SuperMicro X9DA7 & X9DRi-F

    Hopefully, my memory is right and 3.2 has PCIe Bifcuration.

    NVMe boot with SuperMicro X9DA7 & X9DRi-F

    Does anyone have a modded BIOS for the X9DRH-7F that allows me to set the x16 slot to x4x4x4x4? The stock 3.3 BIOS does not have it and I cannot find the 3.2 BIOS which I think had it.

    X9DRH-7F UEFI boot?

    I have an X9DRH-7F that I want to bifurcate the PCIe x16 slot for NVMe cache drives in unRAID. The problem is, I have to boot it into UEFI mode to be able to set it that way. I cannot get it set to boot in UEFI mode. Anyone know how to do this?

    Is this possible?

    Ran out of time over the weekend. But I was able to do it tonight. I did have to "create a new array", but I used the same settings as the last one and all is fine. Building a Lubuntu install USB right now. I do like the LSI config utility better than the Dell one by a mile.

    Is this possible?

    It will back up tonight (Veeam Agent free edition). I am hoping that will resolve the fact that the card doesn't work in Linux.

    Is this possible?

    I have a Dell PERC H310 installed in my home desktop (providing a RAID 0 array for my game storage). I would like to install Linux to a partition on the array but for some reason, Linux cannot initialize the firmware on the card. I know it can be flashed to the LSI 9211-8i IT mode firmware...

    SC836 & PWS-920P-1R quiet mode

    To my wife and kids, Plex is mission critical :) Although given that I only have a single power line coming in...... PM Sent.

    SC836 & PWS-920P-1R quiet mode

    Or put the other $19 towards another PSU? Damn SQ ones are too expensive

    SC836 & PWS-920P-1R quiet mode

    The PWS-1K28P-SQ are ~$50 each while the PWS-920P-SQ are ~$100 each. Hence why I'd prefer the larger ones even if they are a little louder. Right now the fans in my PWS-920P-1Rs are spinning at 5k to 7k each, so even 4k would probably help a lot.

    SC836 & PWS-920P-1R quiet mode

    I'll have to get PWS-920P-SQ one at a time then. Does anyone happen to know of a 3D model for a power supply blocking plate (I have a 3D printer so I can print one, just need a model)? Also, what is the chance that the PWS-1K28P-SQ would fit?
