Ubuntu 18.04 shouldn't be a problem, as Linux has supported pvscsi for a very long time.
If you have more than one disk, you might need to change the order of the disks if the VM doesn't boot.
But normally it should just work.
The Windows trick is just something you do to force the...
It makes sense that all slots are wired to CPU1: the board supports the E5-1600 series and that series only supports single cpu.
The E5-1600 has 40 lanes of PCIe 3.0. if you add together the lanes from all five slots you get: 8+8+8+8+8 = 40.
The last PCIe slot (slot 1) is 2.0 and doesn't come...
This sounds like a problem I had with a Fujitsu card flashed to IT mode. Only one port worked.
The problem had something to do with the SBR.
Is the card you're trying to use a Fujitsu card flashed to 9211-8i in IT mode?
The SAS2008 based adapters are no longer supported and there are no drivers.
The physical view of the pcie devices will list all devices, no matter of support.
To use ESXi 7.0 you have to replace the controller and get a supported one.
Or downgrade to 6.7, that still supports SAS2008 based...
According to https://community.mellanox.com/s/article/lr4-support-on-mellanox-switches the 6012 supports LR4 optics on all ports in ethernet mode. If you need LR4 with IB, you have to edit the profile INIs to support high power mode.
That link only shows an example for one specific board, the Z10PE-D16 WS.
If you look in the manual for Z10PA-D8 : https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/Socket2011-R3/Z10PA-D8/Manual/E13692_Z10PA-D8_Series_UM_V3_WEB.pdf
On page 2-17 you have the following text:
2.5.4 PCI Express x16 slot (x16...
I also bought one of these. Running it with a single cpu at the moment, as all pcie slots are wired to cpu1.
Running it with a E5-2678v3 and 64gb (4x16gb) ram.
So far so good atleast :)
Quick question; my motherboard included the ASMB8-iKVM chip. Did all boards come with this or was I just lucky?
I don't think there is a general problem with the DACs from FS. I just got mine from a "bad batch" (they had green pullers on them, compared to the working ones that had black pullers). They said that they had a bad batch from the upstream supplier of the 40G DACs and that all batches after the...
I can just add to what @Rand__ wrote. I've used the same NICs and only DACs.
What I know, there are no 56Gbe optical modules. If you want to use optical modules you have to go with 40Gbe. (if I'm wrong here, please correct me).
But for the DACs, my SX6036 has been a bit picky. I bought a few...
Yes, just go ahead. But as to expect, some features will be missing. (I don't remember exactly which, but I think the temperatures of the sfp+ modules doesn't show in older firmwares
I got the CSS326 and I'm fairly happy with it. But it runs SwOS that has some bad performance when traffic comes from a 10Gbps-connected device and going to a 1Gbps device. This problem was introduced in version 2.5 and is still there in 2.9. So stay on SwOS 2.4 and all is fine.
I recieved my unit the other day, works just fine and the updates went through without any problems.
But I was wondering, does anyone know what kind of connector the fans use? The closest I've found is JST-ZH but it isn't quite right.
I'm planning to do some modding to the cooling but don't...
