    i need help with vlaning

    Thanks guys. I completely forgot that tagging on the device requires tagging entirely. Your solution was easier and it worked as expected. Thanks again!.

    i need help with vlaning

    Ok, So I have a bunch of Dell R620's, and I'm trying to segregate my idrac and management stuff into a vlan numbered 555, my normal corp vlan is 10. I'm re-using an older dlink DGS-1210-28 just to manage a few of these vlans. On my Dell idrac's I have tried setting the dedicated idrac port to...

    Dell business laptop quality issues?

    Hello Guys, I'm just curious if any of you who manage large volumes of Dell Laptops have experienced a sudden drop in Quality in their 5x00 series laptops in the past few years? We have a split of 5400/5700 series laptops, and ALL of them have problems with over-heating, sudden failures...

    Synology DSM 7 - iSCSI vs NFS on vmware?

    Hello guys, So I know in the past that Synology had problems and performance issues with iSCSI. Supposedly that has been resolved, but I cannot for the life of me, find anybody that has actually tested this. I am in the process of setting up an SA3400 48TB (12x4TB) with 800gb NVMe Cache...

    Anything better bang for buck then Microtik CRS317-1G-16S+RM ?

    So I ordered the Microtik, changed my mind and cancelled the order, but they had already shipped it. So I guess I'm going to try the Microtik and see how it goes. Worst case, I get performance issues and order the other two switches anyway. Now i just need to figure out with DSM 7 if I should go...

    (SOLD) FS: US- Beauty and the Beast $25K

    well considering the CPU's alone are ~2500 each, I'd say you left a lot of money on the table.

    (SOLD) FS: US- Beauty and the Beast $25K

    Yeah, this was at my place of employment (my wife would literally kill me if I spent $25k on a server). Yeah, this was just for some vm hosting requirements. I only looked at the 7525 because when i priced it out, it worked out to be cheaper per core then some of the comparable intel boxes...

    (SOLD) FS: US- Beauty and the Beast $25K

    I literally almost purchased one of those 7525's 2 months ago, but realized for the price (and my needs), I could get a whole bunch of previous gen servers (6 in fact) for less money then that single server. still an amazing deal.

    Do you realize this thread was from 2010?

    Anything better bang for buck then Microtik CRS317-1G-16S+RM ?

    Changed my mind. I do like the idea of buying 2-3 enterprise grade switches, and for the cost without a warranty/support contract. Luckily, I have until ~Dec to work out any issues. If they fail, then I'll buy the CRS or Unifi's aggregation switch (tbd).

    Anything better bang for buck then Microtik CRS317-1G-16S+RM ?

    First: I have zero need for additional 1Gb ports. Only SFP+ 10Gig. So to be clear, I really dont plan on doing any routing between vlans or anything else on this device. All routing will be performed by my router (Fortigate 201E). This includes any inter-vlan routing, etc. I dont need IGMP, or...

    Anything better bang for buck then Microtik CRS317-1G-16S+RM ?

    Yes, sorry, I dont want a screamer. It is going into an IT closet in the middle of an office, so not too loud if possible. Power is of no concern though. Original post updated.

    Anything better bang for buck then Microtik CRS317-1G-16S+RM ?

    Hello, So I'm looking for a 12+ port SFP+ 10G Switch (Basic switching, with vlan tagging). Preferrably not too loud. Not worried about power consumption or heat. I'm currently looking at the Microtik CRS317-1G-16S+RM . It is going to run as a 10Gig switch between 6 total ESXi boxes (3 prod...

    SFF Windows server OS certified?

    So in the end, I ended up buy a set of SuperMicro SYS-5019S-L servers with E3-1225v6 CPUs. I should have baught the 5019S-ML for having m.2 on the motherboard, but the cost difference wasn't worth it. I puchased 2 $15 pcie to M.2 cards (these are super low profile, don't even have a bracket...
