    FreeNAS Corral and bhyve network question

    Everything is all MTU 1500 at the moment. Also, vlan config was not part of test 2 as I attempted to keep it simple initially. Cheers.

    Don't think they are installed on a base FreeNAS system. I'll see what I can do.

    FreeNAS Corral and bhyve network question

    I installed Corral and have been playing around with VMs. I've observed an interesting problem when running some simple network tests and I'm wondering if anyone has seen similar results in their testing. All tests are running on a 10G Network and involve running the following 2 commands. On...

    Rack to Tower conversion?

    Hi folks, I have two (well more, but let's start with two) SC826 Chassis. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a product that would allow me to stack two vertically, back to back to effectively create a 4U tower? Floor space is precious, vertical space less so. Cheers Simon

    Intel 1U Help Needed

    Couple of thoughts I'd just throw out there as I don't know the answers to any of them :) Does the board have IPMI? Do you actually need a CPU installed to run IPMI? If you don't need a CPU installed can you use IPMI to update the bios? Cheers Simon

    Jim's Phreak of a mini-ITX AIO VM/Storage server

    Maybe I missed this in the thread but some observations: 1) I never had to enable LAN1/LAN2 so odd to me they came disabled on your board. 2) LAN3/LAN4 are enabled via jumper JPTG1 10Gb Ethernet Enable Pins 1-2 (Enabled). Again, didn't have to do this for my board. Cheers Simon

    Here's what my device manager looks like. This is for Windows 8.1 Enterprise 64bit. Opened the zip, right clicked the inf file, select install and then reboot. All adapters are enabled, have working IPs (1Gb for the moment as I've not completed my network setup). Cheers Simon

    More Samsung SV843's?

    Sorry, missed this question. CrystalDiskInfo reports ID B1 (Wear Level Count) Current/Worst/Threshold as 99/99/5 for all 3 devices. Cheers Simon

    More Samsung SV843's?

    Just some info. From the wordage (not the image) it wasn't totally obvious to me these are in fact SV843s but after a convo with the seller and ordering/receiving the the items, the drives I received do appear to be SV843s. Cheers Simon

    ESXi boot drive on SuperMicro X10SDV-F?

    Morning Jim, I connect up the USB connectors on the motherboard giving me 4 USB2 and 2 USB3 ports total and then use a USB thumbdrive.

    SV843 SSD and disk activity light

    All the same FW version. OS versions have ranged from ESXi 5.5/Windows 8.1/Windows Server 2012 R2 and Linux. Firmware for the controller on the X10SL7-F is currently 19 (I have had it 16, same issue).
