    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Can you run both an I and an E power supply at the same time? I'd like to switch from I to E, not sure if the switch will allow that for 30 seconds while I swap them. @fohdeesha Do you know?

    Need help with VMWare licensing

    How many VM's? We've found that the ROBO license works well for low count VM clusters.

    Equallogic Type 10 Firmware

    Anyone have the Equallogic Type 10 new firmware? I just upgraded from Type 4 to 10 to get 10Gbit, but the controllers came with ancient firmware.

    NewEgg Open Box Sale - Lots of Server Gear

    Holy cow was this a good link. I got a TON of Sonicwall gear for insane prices that wasn't actually Open Box, and a heap of fairly large APC's. Insane pricing.

    ESXi 6.0 GPU Passthru + Hw Virtualization

    My USB boot drive crapped out and I had to re-install ESXi and import the vmx files. Prior to the crapout, I had my workstation running perfectly with a K2200 GPU passed thru and HW Virtualization enabled (for nested Virtualbox, Bluestacks, etc) Now I cannot for the life of me get it to work...

    Best NAS software as VM guest to host iSCSI SAN

    Hence my need for a frontend. My SAN doesn't have SMB/CIFS. It's an enterprise SAN, so does offer cache and cache protection and a BBU. So yes, I was simply looking for an easy *nix frontend to share out an iSCSI san via SMB/CIFS.

    Best NAS software as VM guest to host iSCSI SAN

    May be the best solution, although I kinda wanted plug and play.

    Best NAS software as VM guest to host iSCSI SAN

    This is a specific re-use case of an existing 40TB SAN that we already own. I'm very familiar with ZFS on HBA based systems. ZFS has all kinds of issues when there's lots of layers in between (SAN / Cache / datastore is alot) I specifically don't want Windows for virus / randsomware...

    Best NAS software as VM guest to host iSCSI SAN

    This is an already existing iSCSI 10G SAN, I just need some sort of frontend on it to make it SMB / CIFS capable.

    Best NAS software as VM guest to host iSCSI SAN

    I'm nervous about ZFS in general in a VM. There's all kinds of caveats in that, since I have several layers between the VM and the actual disks, and I can't shutoff caching on the SAN

    Best NAS software as VM guest to host iSCSI SAN

    I've got a production Hyperconverged ESXi system, and a fairly loaded (but out of warranty)HP SAN that I'd like to use for Veeam backups. However, I don't want to direct mount it as a Windows drive..too much risk with Windows. SMB / CIFS would be fine. it's already an iSCSI datastore...I...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    You know a way to show that boot log after the fact?

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    I'm not familiar with how to see the ASIC errors...I don't see them in the logs. Although on bootup, I did see the same QSFP error.

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    The 40G only ports are still stacked, 1/2/2 to 1/2/5 and 1/2/7 to 1/2/10, 2/2/2 to 2/2/5 and 2/2/7 to 2/2/10 are setup as breakouts, unstacked. Like I said, I've done a mess of these, and these are the first ones to show this EXACT behavior. It's very odd.

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    So I've rolled a bunch of these out in stacks, and I can now confirm that I have a stack which is exhibiting the same behavior. If I tag VLAN's on 1/2/2 or 2/2/2 the whole port goes south. BOTH switches.

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Yup, familiar with all of them. We're just using enough of them internally that I'd like to get some ears. I've used these as well: 2 Post Rack Rails At that point I might as well just buy switches with the ears included. But I'm going to price out having someone replicate the ears from...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Got any links? I can't find any, which is why I was asking. Also, if they are strong nylon or CF impregnated, and mid-mounted, I suspect they would be fine. -D
