    Proxmox

    Yea, they have a web interface that manages everything for the most part. Check the Proxmox site, they have some demo's on mgmt. You'll still need to do some deeper stuff from the CLI and knowing basic Linux would be helpful.

    Xeon D-1541 Quanta storage servers on ebay

    Good catch, I didn't even think of that. The other fw you linked for that expander worked! I guess the 3108 mezz cards I bought came from a different system and have an ID on them listing the system ID. Now to try the latest system bios and see what happens. Thanks again, appreciate the...

    Xeon D-1541 Quanta storage servers on ebay

    Thanks for the video!! Still not working for me, see attached pics. I swapped the 3008 for the 3108 card, not sure if that has anything to do with it or not. I tried with and without drives in the system, same error. The debug log is also useless, just says error=45. This is across 8 systems.

    Xeon D-1541 Quanta storage servers on ebay

    So, I ordered 8 of these...4 arrived damaged and looked like they just shipped damaged units since the shipping boxes were fine. They shipped replacements, and 2 of the replacements were also bad...so they shipped 2 more. The CMOS bat is dead in 7 of them so far, not sure if this is something...

    Xeon D-1541 Quanta storage servers on ebay

    Not sure what magic you were able to use, but I'm getting the same errors as trying via a loaded OS. I disconnected ALL HDD and SSD's, and getting the same error, tried using Enc 12 and Enc 252, which are the one two that are listed. Any other ideas? Did you screen cap your output? If so...

    Did you use the lsi fw from the quanta site or grab lsi updates directly for the 3008 card?

    Need a SAN upgrade for our FreeNAS & Xen-XCP Cluster - Starwinds VSAN?

    Yea, it uses HW raid cache, I wouldn't run VM's off of it.

    Need a SAN upgrade for our FreeNAS & Xen-XCP Cluster - Starwinds VSAN?

    The DSS (non ZFS) product is good for slow storage, no caching, etc. We used it as a multi PB repo for VM backups for years w/o problems. Have not spent a lot of time with the ZFS (Jovian) product yet, they have a bunch of different options for HA with Jovian, Eth sync, shared SAS, FC, etc.

    Need a SAN upgrade for our FreeNAS & Xen-XCP Cluster - Starwinds VSAN?

    Let me know if you find anything, I've been on the search for a good bare metal software san for years, was hoping Starwinds was it, but the failure during the POC wasn't comforting. StorPool is another you way want to look at, and they want you to use flash/SSD for everything. ZetaVault was...
