    Forgot what IP address I assigned to my Cisco SG500-28 switch. Don't want to reset.

    Tried pinging 192.168.1.254, got 'Destination host unreachable.' I've accessed the switch before, set VLAN, unfortunately, I forgot. Looked at my firewall, with assigned DHCP IP addresses, and tried to access them, with no avail. Any ideas how?

    SAS drives for home NAS

    So while I'm waiting for some deal to be available on ebay, why are others not concerned that SAS drives consume more power than SATA? I also read they don't spin down? Won't all these translate to significant additional power usage? How much watts do a regular SAS2 drive consume?
