I currently have a 7 disk mdraid lvm raid6 array using an ext4 filesystem.
I am wondering how I can better secure my data from hardware failure.
In a nutshell, I have a whole lot of files which rarely change, are relatively large, and I wouldn’t really lose sleep over if I lost.
I'm looking for a compact, low power system for running 2 virtual machines:
1. Mythbuntu install - to stream to clients which are sufficiently powerful for decode etc
2. Misc Downloader - To download to a NAS - Knowing me I will probably use Lubuntu for this.
Mythbuntu probably needs...
I'm looking for a rather special socket 1150 motherboard.
Must have the following base requirements:
Support for Gen 2 haswell (4790 chip)
4x ddr3 memory slots (must work with non ecc!)
2x Pci-e 8x (or 16) - 3.0 or 2.0 doesn't matter
1x Pci-e 1x or above - 3.0 or 2.0...
I am looking to consolidate my WAP into my esxi box, and wondering which distribution to go with. It needs to have basic WPA2, a MAC filter, and support reasonably fast 802.11ac but aside from that it really doesn't need much.
So I swapped from a Mellanox connectx2 (which worked perfectly OK) to a Chelsio t420 on my esxi box and I am having trouble getting network traffic over it.
I've installed the latest beta drivers, 1.4.1 on the box, the Nic is detected and it sees the network up/down. But no observed IP range...
So.. Not sure what's going on..
Was hoping for plug and play but it ain't happening
Installed Connectx-2 driver (5.10) and windows and the bios both detect the device as a PCI Memory controller.
Tried manually selecting the connectx-2 driver for it, Device failed to start
