    are you supposed to turn off servers before moving them on their rails?

    Was racking my SC846, which was separate from my Norco and C6100 chassis. I had my norco and c6100 slightly slid outwards previously, and have been using them for very light duty (holding a empty patch panel, or installing 3.5" drives into sleds). Slid the Norco back in on its rails, caused...

    My rack!

    This is in a bomb shelter connected to my basement, has a kitchen, bathroom, generator, pump and blower fan. Noise isn't a problem! Neither is space in the rack, not even using half of the 42U, so I'm using the shelves as working surfaces, as the switches aren't full depth. Have 100TB+ of raw...

    Need some help with 10gbE

    Connected two machines directly to each other, I can't get traffic from one machine to the other. Can't ping the other from either end. Oddly enough, I can see ARP requests on one end, but not the other. One is a Linux VM on chassis 1 in my signature with a MNPH29B-XTC passed through running...
