    Two PM863 drives dead after power outage

    reminds me of Intel 320 SSDs :( I recall seeing some dead 3.84TB pm863 drives on ebay and people here asking if there is way to recover them. Will try to do more search. but definitely warning slap reminding that redundancy is not backup.

    X9SRL-F POSTs only via BIOS recovery process

    yeah, if you recover bios from usb flash, you can boot the OS. But power outage/reboot etc requires usb recovery and manually booting OS again. I bought preloaded BIOS chip from ebay, and replacing faulty one on motherboard resolved the issue.

    HP T620 thin client crashing

    Hello, I bought HP T620 with 4GB ram 16GB SSD. I use 65W HP branded power supply with it. Issue with it is that it crashes after 1-2 minutes from power on. When I boot Windows 7 embedded, it shows 0x50 BSOD. If I dont boot windows, but stay in BIOS, it just hangs. After it crashes, and I power...

    1000base rate support on HP 560SFP+ (Intel 82599/X520 OEM) ?

    from this thread I assumed that 560SFP+ adapter doesn't have vendor lock enabled. https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/patching-intel-x520-eeprom-to-unlock-all-sfp-transceivers.24634/#post-242952 I dont know if I can verify it from vmware since ethtool doesnt seem work in esxi 6.7...

    1000base rate support on HP 560SFP+ (Intel 82599/X520 OEM) ?

    I use SFP optical transceivers, no DACs. I think these HP OEM cards don't have vendor lock for SFPs.

    1000base rate support on HP 560SFP+ (Intel 82599/X520 OEM) ?

    Hello, I bought HP 560SFP+ used on ebay and use it in esxi 6.7 box. Problem I have with it is that it doesnt support 1Gb link rate. So when I insert SFP, link doesnt come up. Forcing 1000/full duplex also doesnt work, card states it only supports 10000BaseX/Full. I am wondering if there is any...

    Can it work with 6core/8core or will it fry itself? Does it run with 64GB RAM? Can you order barebone? Finally it a true successor to Gen8 :)

    2U narrow ilm active cooler

    I use Supermicro SNK-P0048AP4 and its fan can go to 8-9k rpm which is really loud. You can replace it with basically any 60x60x25mm fan. I replaced mine with Noctua A6x25. Or cheaper Arctic Cooling F6.

    Windows Server : Rejoining new domain with same name, keeping profiles

    as you mention, SID will differ, so new clean profile will be created, old one will remain intact. Then you can manually set new user's file permission on old profile folder + registry entries in ntuser.dat file. Then change profile path in registry (this worked fine in Windows 7 when I was...

    Raid on a Gigabyte AMD Server

    These LSI (Broadcom) raid controllers you mention are PCIe3 x8 cards. Meaning max throughput for each card is 8GB/s. SAS3 speed is 12Gb/s per link (~1.2GB/s). But with NVME drives, SAS speed is not relevant to you. For putting 24 NVME drives into single raid, I think best solution is to use...

    NVMe on Intel S2600CP

    then you have to first install windows on that nvme drive, either on another computer which supports booting from NVME, or if you dont have that, install it manually from command line using diskpart, dism, bcdboot utilities. Only then will Clover show "Windows boot manager" as boot option, and...
