    I just followed the guide and have this issue too. Did you get your BIOS to post? I have not been able to yet.

    S2D Recovery

    Yeah, it is an option. probably like $500 for the support call. Too bad I can't sneak it in under premiere support through my company. My backup is pretty old because that got messed up too.

    S2D Recovery

    Having an issue getting my S2D healthy again. Had some drives taken offline on one of the nodes and seems after some time they would not come back online even though they were up again. I was on a 2019 preview build and figured that node was fubar anyway I rebuilt it. I have tried...

    Hyper-V vs Vsphere - my initial take

    You mean the dual controller? Can't afford that, though I could have had an old equal logic that I got a lot of drives from or the even the compel lent. But too much noise or space. If you've ever dealt with VMWare support you know it's always the network or the storage that's at fault, I...

    Hyper-V vs Vsphere - my initial take

    I've had local storage in Hyper-v cluster and moved stuff to it and back. Also this move VMs to local storage and back for SAN reboot sounds silly. SAN should have dual controller so VMs should be fine during SAN reboots. My experience with vSAN vs S2D is what sets the MS solution ahead. It...

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

    Just got one of these bad boy 6610s. Looks like it already has the licenses installed so I want to back them up before reseting. What do I need to do that? Apologies if this is answered above I tried searching for the answer and didn't come up with results.

    Success updating Firmware on SEAGATE ST4000NM0023?

    They came from a dell server/equal logic and I'm struggling to get Storage Spaces Direct working so my last ditch effort is to update the firmware. I downloaded the dell utility but I'm not running it in a dell server so it fails. I tried the cli utility but also failed, I found this blog...

    Storage Spaces Direct Problem

    it's in IT mode already which is HBA only. that's what I've seen elsewhere that was supposed to make it work. That means there's no raid being done on the card. Passthrough the drives.

    Storage Spaces Direct Problem

    I have 2x nodes with below: Intel(R) C610 series/X99 Chipset Management Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2670 v3 LSI Adapter, SAS2 2308 Mustang - I was looking over the catalog and think it needs 9300/ 3008 type card instead so I'm going to give that a try. QLogic BR-series 10G Ethernet Adapter...

    Storage Spaces Direct Problem

    SAS HBA direct. Not raid. I understand Raid is not supported. That's why I flashed IT mode for the controller.
