Only in the bios.
Newb to ipmi other than the asrock and it was no issue as 1st owner to set root was me.
Do i need to download an ipmitool?
Currently I have proxmox hypervisor and Linus vm running on the servethank you again for the guidance.
Area, a couple of things and in no specific order.
#1 "no lights" means disabled port: bad cable or not seeing a link from the other end aka the switch. check mobo bios for the nic's settings. Make sure they are enabled and you will likely want them set to dhcp.
#2 these older 10gb nic only do...
I appreciate the response!
I saw I could add another user/admin locally but how does that help resetting the root account password?
I created a new admin but was not sure if it should be a 1 or 8. Saved and rebooted, tried removed access under the newly created user and it failed.
This is my...
Hello team STH.
Hoping my fellow enthusiasts can assist me where Tyan support seems slow.
I have an epyc milan setup in an asrock. I wanted to get this Tyan 8030 and found one for sale that was a return. Since I can return it to the retail seller I figured at worst I would be out the time and...
Hi and no the mounting is different.
But you are in luck that one the top performing air coolers for the tr4-sp3 (arctic freezer 4u) came out with one that they designed to work with both the tr4-sp3 AND the new tr5-sp6 boards.
"arctic freezer 4u-m"...
Only plx 4+ m.2 nvme cards I saw were more expensive than the pex version (bifurcation mobo required) but I assume that's because of the cost of the plx controller on the board. Anything with more than 4 slots should be added expensive.
I too would appreciate an aliexpress or other link to a...
BTW, @louie1961 post just reminded me unRaid has a sale going on if anyone is interested. I don't work there or get anything. Just sharing from the email.

Welcome to the forums.
I do not want this to sound negative but here goes.
Like just about everyone else you sound like you want your cake and to eat it too.
What I mean is you want a lot but you want it on a low budget.
That is nearly impossible so you have to choose.
Do I want this...
BTW, about new, fewer, larger capacity sata drives.
This would be my recommendation. Dual actuated drives by seagate.
If I were going this route (no tech budget after building my epyc earlier this year) I...
Since there is a professional opportunity with one hypervisor go that route, otherwise proxmox is a great choice. Get that intel cpu because you will use the igpu (they are power efficient and good for encode/decode).
Max out the ram if you can, probably 128gb.
Ditch the sas drives/controller...
The value in what you are asking about is the experience/learning. That said, many of us who work in tech for a living want simple, set it and forget it when they go home. I am one of those that still likes to use my home network as a lab. Most of my tech friends run home class crap and are...
I want this 8 port but with 2 10G ports so I can connect one to a device and one to a duplicate switch of the same type as a backhaul.
Adding the 2nd 10G bumps the price up quite a bit from what I have been seeing.
I am fairly certain toptop just resells cwwk appliances. Which is why you can flash the firmware without an issue. Doubt there is a "general concensus" one is better.
I have the 6 port 2.5gbe i5 gen12 topton, 32gb ram with the cwwk unlocked bios. Proxmox, pfsense, openwrt and a couple of lxc's...
IMO, having used both I like unRaid better.
That said unRaid has a price to unlock while OMV is free to use.
For unRaid aside from the obvious google searches, watch spaceinvader one videos. He makes some good "how to's".
The good news is, if you stick with wireguard it is multicore capable unlike openvpn. That means single core clock speed is not as important as it is with openvpn.
Your current FW4B (4 core I believe) will perform far better with wireguard than openvpn right out of the box because of this.
If your current hardware can do it, keep it. Focus on a linux distro FW.
Ipfire is good out of the box.
If you care for a more customizable, lots of plug-ins (read more effort /learning curve) openWRT is great.
Rtech gives some solid recommendations.
I suspect it is your cable/converter solution.
The biggest issue I see is this.
VGA = analog
HDMI = digital
If your converter is passive then it almost certainly will not work.
Requires an "active" converter to convert analog to digital. That requires a power source outside of the server &...
I have been enjoying my refamiliarization with openWRT. 23.05 seems pretty good so far.
I got a working LXC with passed through NICs in proxmox. What I found annoying with the LXC is the restrictions on host resource access (makes sense obviously). Ran into some routing issues I eventually gave...
