So I've got one of those SE3016s. Its decided it wants to be in an alarm state due to a temperature sensor issue.
This is the report from the drives themselves:
/dev/sdap: ST3000DM001-1CH166: 25Â°C
/dev/sdaq: ST3000DM001-1CH166: 25Â°C
/dev/sdar: ST3000DM001-1CH166: 26Â°C
I've got an older 3750g I brought home. It's got 4 SFP ports, but they're all 1gbit.
It has a stacking port, and I've got some 10g stuff I'd like to connect via sfp.
Does anyone know of a 'cheaper' 4 port 10g switch with SFP's that I can connect to my 3750g via the stacking port?
