I found this blog and feel ready to take the dive into VyOS.
It's easier to conduct this test while my rack lives in my house before I have to move it into a data center.
I'm also hoping to reduce complexity by having a one-box solution in hopes for stability, fewer things to maintain. But...
I'm in the market for a firewall to place in a small rack at a data center to access backup storage and a few NVME backed VMs. My current firewall is a DIY 2U firewall 2013 AMD AM1 Kabini with a 4 port NIC running Sophos XG but this setup struggles with my 1 Gbps connection prior to VPN. I'm...
Hey, thanks for jumping in here.
Budget: $300 - $500/m - Happy to commit for 2 yrs
IPv4: /32 or /31 @ 1 Gbit/s
Power: lower power consumption CPUs (E3-1230 v3 and AMD AM1)
Access: Twice a month is fine
Transit time: I'm fine taking the train for 1 - 2 hrs
This isn't mission-critical but...
I am being forced to move to Manhattan and need to stash my homelab which is in a rack enclosure on beefy wheels - Tripp Lite's SRW21UG (21U). I would like to keep the hardware in the rack but I'm open to installing it into a DC's rack.
This is what I have in the enclosure today...
I've used these for my rack to support heavy appliances which don't have rear support:
It's kinda janky but it works well in my home lab. I've mounted them in reverse so the cable lacing bar is supporting the weight of the appliance.

I have a Lenovo SA120 and I'm trying to use this fan control script to manually set the fan speed for the disk array.
The requirement is to use sg3_utils. Which I've installed by using oPKG. I get to this point the script does not respond to ctrl-c.
I have the disk array connected via sas...

I painted the LP bracket black. I'll include a fresh clean LP bracket.
Really odd problem. None of the VMs (on Giulietta) are able to connect to the internet with the two AOCs connected. I'm going to remove the disconnected NICs from the vmswitch and then reconfigure teaming them together.
What type of VMkernel do I need for VSphere NFS traffic? Trying to clone a...

I also bought a pair of fiber QSFP AOC. The NetApp cable is very difficult to cable manage but I have not tested the fiber cables.
Yes, you have all the assumptions correctly. The text in green is exactly what I'm missing.
I hope this helps. I quickly put together a diagram of my home lab.
I was attempting to use a spare 1gbe nic on the general compute host to connect back to the physical switch so the DNS/DHCP server...
Thanks @itronin - Another question. If I go down that route can I use the same vSwitches for a vmnetwork so my VMs can use the 40 Gbe line for communication between without hitting my slower 1gbe physical switch?
Basically the topology is where I have one vmhost as my storage server and the 2nd...
Hey, I got the NICs and they're great plug and play no issues.
Vmware question. I want to use this for both TCP/IP and Vmotion. I created a new vSwitch on both hosts and added the port 1 from each NIC. What provides DHCP?
