Got stuck with X10DRU 2.0a BIOS upgrade as well, when tried to flash from IPMI it just hung on some percent and then BIOS appeared as empty or corrupted. None of the methods I knew were applicable - over IPMI web, SMCIPMItool or super.rom
The only thing that worked is SUM, with DCMS lic, and I...
Sorry, was out a bit. It's serverschmiede.com
BTW, may be interesting for some
Looks like one may buy this SuperMicro 1028U-TR4+ 1U SFF Server w/ X10DRU-i+, DUAL PSU, AOC-UR-I4G, DUAL PSU | eBay
($250 accepted) and Supermicro BPN-SAS3-116A-N10 10-Bay 2.5" SFF 4x SAS3 10x NVMe Hybrid Backplane...
Like they say about every all-nvme chassis - "To maintain quality and integrity, this product is sold only as a completely-assembled system"
I was looking for similar builds years ago and luckily found 2029U-TN24R4T on one famous orange german site for around $1000 - bought...
I tried all the settings through IPMI on SC847 - not much help. Noctua fans or controller (NA-FC1) are damn pricey and newer fan "caddies" just won't fit them. And you must be careful not to set the speed too low - HDDs may get hot very fast.
This cheapo PWM controller just did the job with...
May I ask you if you have faced this issue? Let's say I want to link older X710-DA4 4xSFP+ card to this Arista, what's my best option?
Should I set it to 40G and may use:
Intel® Ethernet QSFP+ Breakout Cable
QSFP+ to (4) SFP+ Direct Attach
Or it's not gonna...
Thanks, but probably it's too exotic beast, XFP and too few of these
Looks like just few REFs on local "market" right now. But we'll be ok to find it in EU as well. Years ago this Arista was a few times cheaper, how...
Ok guys, forget about that weirdo, now I'm on some serious crossroads:
Juniper QFX5120-48Y-DC-AFO 48x25G + 8x100G
CISCO N9K-C93180YC-EX 48x25G + 8x100G
Arista DCS-7160-48YC6-R 48x25G SFP+ 6x100G
Any thoughts? Which one will keep you less stressed about any module compability issues and...
That's what our new DC replied:
"Uplink cables between cabinet rows can be only over a LC singlemode cable per our datacenter.
If an another cable is required, it has to be reviewed by the datacenter and might no be accepted."
Yes, redundancy is a must, yet in 10 years we had zero problems with...
Mentioned Arista is almost ok, except for this weird MXP port, as far as I understand it may not take 100G-LR modules and just need a specific fiber cabling for different port speeds. I love Mikrotiks, but a bit afraid to set it on such a serious load and didn't even know about SFP modules...
I have a similar request but for production infrastructure. We've been working with Aristas for a few years now - no issues.
It's hard now to find anything with >2 100G ports + 40G or even 10G, price is $5000+
The only switch that will minimally fit us is 7280SE-72, 48x10GbE (SFP+) & 2x100GbE...
Enough farming, it's now close to non-profitable for my colo. 150 coins on 1PB earned, I'll hold it, maybe on the next bitcoin bull run something happens. The good thing I have where to use the disks right away
Got few PM1733 and now stuck, not able to mount it in Debian Linux, shows as
[N:4:65:1] disk SAMSUNG MZWLJ7T6HALA-00007__1 -
Windows booted on the same Supermicro server takes it with no issues - I can mount, format and use it.
What is the trick?
I have the same situation. Probably slow re-plot will do a bit more income, but I'm bored with this stuff, just left old plots and switch plotter to new ones to fill up the last 100TB from 1PB total.
Why would anyone use anything except RAM if there's 512Gb of it? Just use ramdisk for the first...
@funkywizard what a setup!
I'm on 1500 plots, 4 coins. Golds and some v3-v4 machines with 6-8TB nvme. Have 500 more TBs to fill, didn't buy much for mining, I agree it's too risky and not a fair play with guys like... Like us)
