    Can't get 10G speeds on main subnet

    Hi 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...

    thoughts on m.2 -> 4 x sata adapter

    Hi 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...

    Help booting X10SDV-4C-TLN2F

    Hi, 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...

    Chelsio nic goes down after ~5 minutes

    Hi, 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...
