    6in1 cage?

    I personally took off the cover/fan to plug everything in, it was a pain in the ass to get SAS cables in there. I just used a SAS 8643 to 4 SATA/SAS break out cable with no side band: You could easily...

    Any server rack experts here? Need help.

    We have a couple of 2950G and 3950Gs in our racks doing the same, we just put a server below it so it doesn't sag. You do kinda have to lift the switch up to slide it in after servicing the server though.

    Install additional RAID Controller for TrueNas Dell R720

    See my answer in your other thread: That said is there a reason you're doing truenas on a proxmox rather than just direct install of truenas?

    drives disappeared after reboot dell r720

    Tons of options, I like option 4 because those sata doms are neat af and you dont have to use a drive slot for the os drive. Or if you already have a sata drive the caddy is easy too, no one needs it with flash drive or idrac iso boot nowadays anyway): Pretty sure there is a onboard sas...

    drives disappeared after reboot dell r720

    By IT mode do you mean flashed in IT mode or each drive set to individual drive raid-0? Do the drives show in iDrac and/or does the controller show there? Are there any LED lights on the drives etc?

    best / cheapest 10gbe 5 port switch

    Yeah thats the limitation, from the switch notes you can only do two 10GbE transceivers, you can have other fiber ones fine.

    Suggestions For Setup

    only do z1 if you dont care about the data z2 or in your case a mirror would make the most sense (z2 works best with 4, 6, or 10 drives)

    Are you using multiple 10Gb ethernet transceivers?

    best / cheapest 10gbe 5 port switch

    Its an unmanaged switch

    best / cheapest 10gbe 5 port switch

    As I noted you can only use 2x 10GbE tranceivers on the 5 port, you would have to upgrade to the 8 port (CRS309-1G-8S+IN ) to use a max of 4x 10GbE tranceivers, which then puts the base switch cost at $266, a total of $426, which is now more than the $387 netgear.

    best / cheapest 10gbe 5 port switch

    Then that netgear I noted is probably your least costly option as mikrotik doesnt have a cheap multi 10GbE option.

    best / cheapest 10gbe 5 port switch

    What do you consider inexpensive? It would probably be cheapest to just run 3 lines to your office and use the 24port you already have frankly. That said the netgear is probably the cheapest direct option:
