For the second time in a month, Hewlett-Packard has been forced to admit it built secret backdoors into its enterprise storage products.
Interesting read, very sneaky!

I run one of these with Napp-IT and OmniOS. No issues at all, just ignore all soft smart errors on hard drive, it's the same for other LSI cards, does not mean anything.
I also cannot get SGPIO working, not sure whether that's my cable or the card doesn't like my backplane.
I love the 743/745, it's not much different to the 745TQ-R800 I have, but I much prefer the silence :D
Supermicro are a pain for RMA, so want to check it's normal for this model of PSU first before putting the server out of action for a long time :(
I have just gone from a dual redundant 745 chassis to a single PSU 743 SQ Chassis.
This chassis has a PWS-865-PQ Power supply, all seems to be working fine and is a VERY quiet server chassis I must say, however I am slightly concerned about one thing, if the system is off the PSU...
I am having a clear out, these are all brand new.
Fill your server :)

Having a change of plan with the house, servers etc as the little one needs his own room so going for smaller units and smaller servers.
Have quite a bit to list on eBay and will update this thread as I list each item.
I have tried OI and both OmniOS with Napp-it, everything seems to be working okay but what's concerning me is that every time I check the drive status the Soft error count goes up?.
It's not linked to one drive as the Soft error rate goes up on all the drives at the same rate.
I have 2 pools...
I've got both APC 3000 rackmount and a 6kva MGE Pulsar Evolution rackmount (MGE is now Eaton) and would say Eaton is much better for management and also batteries last longer due to a better system they use. APC overcharge batteries IMHO. But my MGE went bang! But the general consensus is Eaton...
Totally different kettle of fish but my X9SC* series boards run 1.35v UDIMMS at 1.5v
I guess you have have no local access to this box, is it co located or something? If not just do as the above post, plug a laptop/PC in the ipmi nic. You don't even need the ipmi app, it's viewable on the ipmi...
I have had issues lately with supermicro SFF-8087 cables not fitting in the socket properly, they only latch when they are pulled out slightly then making a poor connection, the metal tabs are in the wrong place! Can't remember whether they were molex or amphenol though.
Maybe a bad batch of...
45 vs 69 watt tdp arnt that much different in the real world, the 1230v2 is the best bang for buck and efficiency ratio out there. It never hits that stated TDP and will probably save money as it will do things more quickly and also will require less power to do the same job as its a quicker CPU...
Very kind of you Odditory, just thinking would it be a good idea to have certain sections of the forum hidden and only registered members can see, ideal for posts like this as no doubt google will pick this up or get linked to other sites.
