    X9DRi and NVME drives

    We've also observed strange behavior of some of our Intel P36xx and P3700 both U2 and pcie cards on Supermicro X9 (including X9DRi-LN4F) and X10 dual socket boards where infrequently on boot they won't show in bios, or wont show in esxi hardware list, or will show in esxi hardware but wont be...

    Crossflashing of LSI 9341-8i to LSI 9300-8i. Success (but no SMART pass through)

    ReFS or Deduplication

    You should try and benchmark the options available and post the results. Also whatever you decide to stick with try to sha hash several large files for reference and verify the hashes sporadically to verify all is well.

    ESXi 5.0.0 network performance issues

    Seeing same getcapab log messages. My pseudo-scientific testing shows the vmxnet adapter as being a little more cpu efficient but maybe slower in some repeat runs than e1000. albacona119, did you perform an in place upgrade from Solaris Express b151 to Solaris 11 b173? Or was it a clean...
