I have a nas with 10GbaseT and a PC with a Mellanox SFP+ as well as on board 2.5G. Connected via a CRS305-1G-4S+IN switch. Using a consumer TP-Link router (although I have a box to set up PFSense or OPNSense on).
If I have the 10G nics on the same subnet as the rest of the home network, I...
I had a feeling something like that may be the case. Given that I'd probably have some spare sata ports in the case that I got a proper HBA, would it not be a bit wasteful to use 4 pcie lanes for the boot drive? Would it be worth using the NVME as L2ARC?
Thinking of using a Supermicro X10SDV-4C-TLN2F to build a super small footprint nas (custom enclosure). It has 6 x sata ports and 1 x pcie m.2 slot + 10gbe.
I could add another 6 sata ports with a device like this...
TLDR: should I persue Tailscale on TrueNAS core or embark on the headache of migrating to scale?
Apologies, I am a technoweenie trying to make sense of these things.
I have a trueNAS core working nicely and I want to expose it via VPN.
I was going with pfsense and openVPN...
thanks to all for the info. my thunderbolt dock / daisy chained nic will be right by the switch, using fs.com copper cable about 1.5 ft. my nas can just barely saturate 10gb anyway so i’m fine with a bit below. sounds like this is best / only option ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Can anyone speak to the quality of this device (SFP+ version for use with Mikrotik CRS305-1G-4S+IN)
There are other options but this is the cheapest SFP+ one I have seen.
I'm looking to use one of these for pfsense.
It has one msata port and one regular sata port. It only has one power port for sata (not a standard one - it comes with a cable to adapt to the drive).
- For dual boot drive do the SSD's need to be identical, or can I use 2 similarly specced ones...
I bought a supermicro X10SDV-4C-TLN2F off ebay to build a nas. The ebay listing claims it is it good working order.
The unit powers on and the CPU fan spins up, but I get nothing at all from the VGA port, or from a cheap pcie video card from my previous nas box. I also get no error beeps...
I got two used Chelsio 110-1160-50 T520-CR nics off ebay.
One of them seems to work fine. The other works as expected, but after about 5 - 10 minutes, suddenly goes down. That is to say, in Freenas it reports as “down” in the interfaces menu, and in Windows it shows “Network cable...
