    PM863 FW File

    thanks. I probabbly should have thought about that but didnt think past the file extenstion. When trying to flash the file though i'm now getting an error that says "firmware update failed due to a failure in device interaction". I've tried checking the exact syntax for the flash commands but...

Also wondering if its possible to dump the firmware from a good drive as I do have a good PM863a but I dont see any options in the samsung DC toolkit to save firmware. Also Ive gone though...

    Does an 8+ slot PCIe 4x motherboard exist?

    Dont do it. dont turn a pc into a switch. its not worth it. performance is terrible. reliability is terrible. Just look through the forums here and buy a brocade icx 7250 or icx 6610 if you dont need it to be too quiet and can stand some noise. ICX6610 can be had for like 150$ on ebay.

    16GB Intel M10 Optane M.2 SSD $15.50 New?

    I know for a fact that these drives are bootable. But also sequential write of 145MB hurts, not that you buy these for sequential write. We used these as boot devices for maybe 2 years but they were generally not worth it.

    Configure pfsense with using a single 40gb connection and multiple VLANs?

    highly interested in this thread. Love pfsense, love my brocade 7250 and 6610. I know that from a performance point of view having the switch do all the inter-vlan routing is the way to go but my networking is not that strong and managing it all from pfsense is much easier, plus nice to have...

    New Home Build Wiring Recommendations 2020 Edition

    well the last thing you want is a media converter hanging off the wall in your living room just to plug in a roku. Not exactly kid friendly, animal safe, or wife approved or cost effective.

    New Home Build Wiring Recommendations 2020 Edition

    In the end I did not run any conduit but once I move into the house I will. There is a section of the basement that is acessible and sits right below a 2ft by 4ft sealed off dry walled space on the main floor and has some other plumbing and utility lines and then just above that space is attic...

    Yeah. Cant just do fiber everywhere. You need RJ45 for basic connectivity of 95% of your network

    New Home Build Wiring Recommendations 2020 Edition

    Thought I'd give an update on what I ended up doing in the end. The home build is nearing completion but I had about 2 weeks in early june to get wiring done. From all over the house I ran cables to a single point in the basement. Its there that I will install a wall mounted rack cabinet next...

    48 Drive 4U Chassis: IBM Slicestor 3448 aka Chenbro RM43348

    I think I'm confused on some of the bandwidth math here and port connections. 2x 24 port expanders. all connections 12Gbit Sas. 3 SAS12Gbit per expander, so 6 total. Put another way 1x 12Gbit connection per 8x drive bay. Meaning 1500MB of bandwidth per every 8 drives (if optimially configured)...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    its not bad for its power, but for home 200w is a little much for 1 switch. 10GB base t takes more power. but i like it for its mix of QSFP and RJ-45. 6 qsfp in the front and a possible 6 in the back if you can get the module at a non gouging price. I'd really like a 6610 quiet alternative. mix...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Thats a great question. I have been wondering that for a while however at that point why not just use the 4x 10GB module instead. maybe the single 40Gb is cheeper.
