    Those extension leads with surge protectors are a waste of money and time, they do not and cannot work. Buy a line interactive APC Smart UPS

    HP Keeps Installing Secret Backdoors in Enterprise Storage

    For the second time in a month, Hewlett-Packard has been forced to admit it built secret backdoors into its enterprise storage products. Interesting read, very sneaky! Source: HP Keeps Installing Secret Backdoors in Enterprise Storage

    LSI HBA 9207-8i

    I run one of these with Napp-IT and OmniOS. No issues at all, just ignore all soft smart errors on hard drive, it's the same for other LSI cards, does not mean anything. I also cannot get SGPIO working, not sure whether that's my cable or the card doesn't like my backplane.

    Does anyone else have a Supermicro PWS-865-PQ or have experiences of this PSU?

    I love the 743/745, it's not much different to the 745TQ-R800 I have, but I much prefer the silence :D Supermicro are a pain for RMA, so want to check it's normal for this model of PSU first before putting the server out of action for a long time :(

    Does anyone else have a Supermicro PWS-865-PQ or have experiences of this PSU?

    Hi All, I have just gone from a dual redundant 745 chassis to a single PSU 743 SQ Chassis. This chassis has a PWS-865-PQ Power supply, all seems to be working fine and is a VERY quiet server chassis I must say, however I am slightly concerned about one thing, if the system is off the PSU...

    OI/OmniOS LSI 9207i Soft Errors

    I have tried OI and both OmniOS with Napp-it, everything seems to be working okay but what's concerning me is that every time I check the drive status the Soft error count goes up?. It's not linked to one drive as the Soft error rate goes up on all the drives at the same rate. I have 2 pools...

    UPS for distributions (OpenIndiana, Omnios ...) based on the system Illumos ?

    I've got both APC 3000 rackmount and a 6kva MGE Pulsar Evolution rackmount (MGE is now Eaton) and would say Eaton is much better for management and also batteries last longer due to a better system they use. APC overcharge batteries IMHO. But my MGE went bang! But the general consensus is Eaton...

    Measuring RDIMM Voltage

    Totally different kettle of fish but my X9SC* series boards run 1.35v UDIMMS at 1.5v I guess you have have no local access to this box, is it co located or something? If not just do as the above post, plug a laptop/PC in the ipmi nic. You don't even need the ipmi app, it's viewable on the ipmi...
