    Flash M1015 to IT mode: error: Firmware Host Boot Failed

    I think these ways of flashing are all a pain in the.. I prefer using Megaraid Storage Manager for Windows :) This only works if the card still shows up in Windows of course.

    mikrotik meris botnet?

    I was new to Mikrotik routers a few months ago. Got one that was outdated and without firewall rules. Had to update packages and firmware (quite hidden). Then reset to default and finally got a good set of firewall rules. I can only recommend MT to advanced users (time to learn).

    Megaraid IBM M5016 Power on, reset, or bus device reset occurred / Diagnostics failed for PD/ PD error

    Did you ever find out what was going on here? I have a LSI hardware raid6 with 17 1TB SATA disks in a Netapp DS4243. Only the two Samsung HD103SI cause the "Power on, reset, or bus device reset occurred". In my case the raid doesn't break though :)

    Connect ASR-78165 and netapp DS4246

    My LSI 9285CV-8e raid adapter saw the disks in a netapp DS4243 immediately. Using 1x QSFP to SFF-8088 cable from China.

    LSI/AVAGO 9267-8i 512MB - newbee need help with initialization hard drives under windows 10

    Hi, are you still having problems? Do you boot from the disks connected to the sas controller? Did the post screen messages go away after switching the card? Do you want to make a raid or JBOD? Did you update your mainboard bios? Did you try a different PCIe slot?

    Can I use HGST 8TB SAS3 disks in a SC846A?

    Hi Been using a SC846A for a while with: - LSI 9201-16e - 2x IBM expander - 20 SATA disks (2-5TB NTFS+Snapraid) Found an auction for 10x used HGST 8TB SAS3, about $120 each. (Sektoren:4KB mit Emulation (512e)Drehzahl:7.2K) I'm guessing they're from a SUN server. Would these disks work in my...

    Mellanox ConnectX-3 - DL360G8 - PCIe slots

    My SC846 has 20 SATA disks (Snapraid for parity). First I used an old HP SAS expander but then switched to two IBM expanders (12 disks each). So currently I'm only using half of the 9201-16e SAS ports. I would have a NetApp DS4243 lying around, but its QSFP connecter annoyed me ;)

    Mellanox ConnectX-3 - DL360G8 - PCIe slots

    The MCX311A-XCAT specs seem quite nice: PCIe Base 3.0 compliant, 1.1 and 2.0 compatible 2.5, 5.0, or 8.0GT/s link rate x8 Auto-negotiates to x8, x4, x2, or x1 I just read that PCIe gen2 x4 can do 2 GByte/s so that should be just enough for bi directional 10Gbit :)

    Mellanox ConnectX-3 - DL360G8 - PCIe slots

    I'd like to get a HP DL360e G8 and install two cards: - LSI SAS 9201-16e (x8 gen2, full height) - Mellanox ConnectX-3 (x8 gen3, low profile) But the server only has: - full height PCIe gen3 x16 (x16 slot) - low profile PCIe gen2 x4 (x8 slot) Will the ConnectX-3 work if it only has gen2 x4 and...

    HP H220 Slow Writes

    I'm thinking about getting a DL360e G8 too. I read that the G8 are not supported by ESXi 6.7, so I might install 6.5. Which version are you using?

    Mellanox ConnectX-3 on ebay look strange

    Hi This seller is confusing me... Are these normal MCX311A and MCX312A ? Did they add an additional cage/heatsink? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mellanox-ConnectX-3-MCX341-SFP-10Gigabit-Ethernet-RMDA-RoCE/192981457274...

    Best low power SFP+ cards

    I've been comparing too. Some of the HP cards seem to get really hot. The popular Connectx-3 with its PCIe Gen3 and 3-5W is my current favorite. http://www.mellanox.com/related-docs/user_manuals/ConnectX-3_Ethernet_Single_and_Dual_SFP+_Port_Adapter_Card_User_Manual.pdf
