not to brag, but I got mine for free off eBay because the 2.5 side doesn’t work and the seller didn’t want it back (and refunded me whole). I’m slowly working toward the fan mod like the 6610 with the 2x120 on plexiglass. Photos when I’m done
Before I start bricking stuff, I'm looking to upgrade my 7150-C12 to 8090k from the fohdeesha default 8080. Guides/videos talk about usb upgrade, but before I brick it, they mention the security of NOT having a cfg installed when going to upgrade.
So... how do you do that? I have the ICX7150...
Resurrecting the dead, as I think that a junior question on a similar theme can stay here: I'm looking at a backup of my Unraid mostly-media server (using rclone or rsync) using TrueNas.
This backup has 9x8tb and 8x4tb. Planning two vdevs raidz2. I would have three open chassis bays still...
According to a documentary series I watched as a kid, some family from the Ozarks struck oil, got rich and moved TO Beverly Hills. The fish out of water scenarios that followed were funny for the time, but seem quaint by today’s standards.
I didn’t realize that Beverly Hills already had oil.
Between the first page, fohdeesha’s website, the search function here, we have almost everything sorted from “routine use” perspective.
maybe people can catalogue our findings here, Brocade ICX Series at home Wiki
Well, it requires a fan (not the one in the PSU) in order to fully boot. You can do some command line stuff, but to actually run the switch it requires a fan module. I'll sell you mine once I finalize my fan mod that DodgyRoute is helping me concoct.
Edit: Had 7450 stuck in my head, Kylie...
I am testing the sas version of this. With 3 2.5 10k drives connected got to 60C really quickly. Now I moved it aside until I can figure out a chassis situation. I'm running badblock tests and have one fan directly in front blowing into the cage and one on the other side blowing away.
I ended up jumping to UEFI Shell to do this step, I think. I forget how it went down, but the UEFI will lock the controller and not show it to FreeDos in a way it can write to it.
I went through hours of frustration trying to figure this out. I wish I had documented my solution. Something else...
