You can often find the HP 1810-8G for $25-$30 on eBay. The 1810-8G can be PoE powered from port 1.
It only has web UI management (no SSH/cli), but it's HP ProCurve with a real lifetime warranty. If you want a small managed switch, I'd choose HP ProCurve over Netgear any day.
If your PoE needs are light, you might look into the MA-PWR-90WAC and MA-PWR-100WAC power supplies for Meraki equipment. They can usually be found quite inexpensively.
The UMEC UP1501D-54 is the 54V 150W PSU found inside the MS220-8P, but it's harder to find.
It arrived and I can confirm it's functionally an MR32 in a weather sealed enclosure. Mine seems somewhat flaky, sometimes it just stays with a red LED with no output on UART and doesn't boot :confused:
Unfortunately the firmware is too new to use the reset button method mentioned in the...
There's a German seller with the MR72, which appears to be the outdoor variant of the MR32 (?).
Shipping to Germany only, payment only via SEPA transfer.
Anyway, you know the drill by now, there are 5 remaining.
Edit: Looks like it's broadcom based so OpenWrt support might not be possible.
I built an ATX->Fujitsu 12V power adapter. The Fujitsu PSU pinout isn't a state secret or anything.
(I would consider selling these if there's any interest)
The I2C connection to the PSUs is not required and as far as I know is only used for workstations with redundant hot-swap PSUs. Since...
I found a good deal ($48.99; bare board) on one of these in 2015 for a friend. They've been using an i5-2500 in it since then. Rock solid board, I really recommend it.
Word to the wise though, the USB2 front-panel headers are using a smaller pitch than normal. I used 2.0mm female to 2.54mm male...
There is no port multiplier in the ASM1166, it's a native 6 port SATA3 design. The PCIe upstream bandwidth is limited, so you cannot achieve 6Gbps to all 6 devices (even with PCIe Gen 3).
No issues so far.
Yes, this is what I did. I have the crimp tool for molex connectors, so I crimped...
Scaleway is a previous employer and I have first hand experience with these servers.
They are full of firmware bugs and would frequently kernel panic. Support from Dell is non-existent (e.g. check the service tag, it returns no results) and Gigabyte isn't much better. I see they have released a...
Edit: These are the former Online.net/Scaleway ARM64 instances. I would avoid ;)
(Pro-tip for equipment decommissioning, remove your DC labels before sending to resellers)
Not sure if this is a great deal, but it's certainly an obscure deal. This is the first time I've seen a Cavium ThunderX...
You don't need an HBA. I bought an ASM1166 SATA card with 6 ports, plus the 6 SATA ports on my motherboard, it works fine.
You can also 3D print more drive caddies if you want some spares: 3.5" HDD Caddy for Rackable Systems Server by greenedge
Be careful here, the power/reset buttons run...
