    983DCT in an R740 or R750

    R730 I didn't have any issues. I see where your going but the 740 and 750 actually disable the device

    983DCT in an R740 or R750

    So, I have seen this issue on both R740 and R750. I understand the reason but can't find a work around. I'm using a supermicro dual nvme adapter and bifurcating the pci slot to x4. The dell bios will kick back that there's a pcie link training issue and essentially shit the bed. Anyone have...

    QuestionTesla P100 bracket

    Wasn't really sure where to put this so hoping an admin can move this if needed. Anyone know of a single slot pci bracket that would fit a tesla p100?

    Somewhat insulated desktop case?

    Fractal Design Define R5. It's a bit big but drives and everything running I can barely hear it sitting about 4 feet from me.

    Looking for chassis

    So, I don't know if this is in the right area. I am looking for a chassis that can take 4 asus hyper m.2 cards or 2 at a minimum. I know the system needs to support bifurcation. I would prefer a 1u or 2u system. Having atleast 1 additional slot for a 10/40Gb NIC would be ideal but overall not...

    Project TinyMiniMicro: Reviving Small Corporate Desktops

    Ironically this was the first thread I saw in here today and perfect timing. Just snagged 2 Dell wyse 3040s (4c 2GB ram 16GB storage) for my home network so I can separate it from my play zone. Looking to install Ubuntu server and pi hole on both then a few small services for the family. I'm...

    RHEL8 VDO NAS Performance

    Well, after about 6 months of operation (and a few drive failures) I can honestly say this thing is a champ. Heres a quick run down of changes from the initial design and reasons. First and foremost, I ended up swapping out the backplane to the CSE-216 chassis. The backplane with the expander...

    Cisco Nexus 3064 firmware

    Got a 3064PQ-10GX off ebay a while back. Unfortunately, its on nxos version 6.0.2 U6. Anyone happen to have a version 7 or 9 file on hand?

    Adding PCIe/M.2 SSD to DL180 G6

    If you are looking to boot from the drive, its out of the question for the G6. I have seen operating systems detect and use m.2 drives on PCIE 2.0 (hit or miss on some boards), but you wont get anywhere near the speeds the drive may advertise. As far as the adapter, just use something that works...

    DRAM less SSD for ZIL

    If PLP is something you are looking for check out the (SM953 $60). I just ordered 6 of them from that seller and all had minimal usage (~1800-1900 power on hours, and only <100GB written)

    RHEL8 VDO NAS Performance

    I have though about NUMA but I need to get into the BIOS to change some tings there. The CPU is looking like the likely culprit, and possibly the 1333Mhz RAM. Unfortunately the onboard 2308 is not playing nice with RHEL8 so for the moment I have an HP H240 in the chassis connected to the SAS...

    RHEL8 VDO NAS Performance

    In case it helps, kicked off a clone of a VM on one of the servers. The drives are capable of much high speeds than 384MB/s per drive. You can see the CPU spike when data is incoming.

    RHEL8 VDO NAS Performance

    VDO - A look at VDO, the new Linux compression layer Similar (I know its different) to XFS file system compression/dedupe. The VDO is on a software raid. Im not concerned about the 24x2TB array (typo), thats just general file storage. Im trying to see if anyone knows about the mechanism behind...

    Is WSUS broken on Windows 10 / Server 2016?

    So we recently had to setup a Server2016/Windows10 WSUS server at my job. It took a littl ework but there were 2 things I noticed. First off, group policy seemed to not work. We had to Set the servers information via regedit...

    Server 2016 ISO

    This really is a last-ditch attempt and I do not know if I should be asking this here. Just to clarify, I am NOT asking for pirated software. I have licenses for Windows 2008 - 2016 from my colleges subscription to onthehub. Recently, I lost my ISO archive. I know that I can download the...

    Supermicro MB w/ USB issue

    Well this has been debunked. I broke out some jumper cables from the raspberry pi box collecting dust and wired the adapter to the motherboard with the USB data+ and data- wires reversed. Detected the drive perfectly and loaded ESX without a hitch. The strange thing is that the manual shows that...
