    Misery loves company so is crypto done?

    I CPU mined BTC five years ago, it was worth pennies. I had about .385 BTC. That's worth a little now (or would be if I hadn't lost my wallet.dat). Profit depends on the timeframe.

    Thin Client thoughts?

    Mine are about 45 cable feet away (through this, around that), I use good active HDMI and USB cables. Server is in the basement, USB hub and monitor are in the office.

    For Sale: Intel R2308GZ 2U Server

    2660v2 because they are out in quantity. This is homelab stuff for me, the upgrade from 32-40 threads for ~$200-$250 is worth it for me, YMMV.

    Cloud backup solution?

    I took care of this tonight. I had been using an Ubuntu server with a ZFS pool as a target for my backups. The data on that pool had been restored from a CrashPlan backup of a Storage Spaces fail which had been moved from unraid. Everything is backed up here, reinstall images, media, etc for...

    vmware installer hangs loading mpt2sas module

    I had this issue in my lab. I pulled all of the drives attached to the card and it upgraded. I passed the card through to a VM, reinserted the drives and found a failed disk. Replaced the disk and I didn't have a problem with that hang again.

    Sick and tired of FreeNAS, need alternates>>>

    Gea, thanks for that explanation. Here is a link to what I did to set my zpool up by ID. These were the pools I talked about moving above.

    Sick and tired of FreeNAS, need alternates>>>

    I've done a lot of different things. Currently I'm on ESXi with an Ubuntu 16.04 VM that has ZFS installed from standard repositories. I've passed through an 9205-8e card that is attached to an external JBOD. ESXi is installed to a 4GB SATA DOM, datastore is on a pair of 120GB SSDs. The server...

    what's your ZFS flavor?

    I've played with a few distros and was a long time Unraid user. My current fav is ubuntu with zfs installed from the repository. This is home use only so I'm not too worried about lights and drive maps. I'm only managing about 30 drives, when I put one in a drive cage I print a label with...

    WTB E3-1230 v2, entry level vsan cache SSDs

    I'll wait for the OP to respond. I'm interested in this too. I bought 2 barebones chassis's thinking I had two E3 processors but I only had one. I think one got tossed in the trash. Some of my consumer drives are starting to throw errors (after ~40,000 hours).
