    EU P3605 - 168€

    How's the linux support? I have a fusion-io which requires a kernel module and doesn't support newer kernels..

    Aruba MAS series SFP+ & POE+ switches sub-$100

    I'm new to aruba switches but decided anyway to replace bunch of mikrotik 10G switches with s2500/s3500s. I wanted to start with a simple network without any vlans and in the long run configure these better - I just wanted to drop these in place of mikrotiks and call it a day. However during...

    Unlocking vGPU on consumer gpu's

    So I've been keeping an eye out on this for a few weeks now and this has been gaining momentum: https://github.com/DualCoder/vgpu_unlock/ This has been brewing for the longest time, I remember seeing this years back vGPU on GTX or RTX or Quadro but sadly the author never released his POC code...

    EXPIRED Supermicro Mbd-h11dsi-b epyc motherboard 73e

    I'm not sure why this is this cheap, maybe there's something I'm missing? Ordered one even though I wasn't really planning to :rolleyes: Edit: likely scam, beware https://www.ebay.com/itm/Supermicro-208415-Motherboard-Mbd-h11dsi-b-Dual-Amd-Epyc-7000-series-Sp3-Socket/284224759106 Here's...

    Xeon D-1541 Quanta storage servers on ebay

    I swapped the CMOS battery, didn't resolve the bmc self test failure. Maybe I'll try to flash an older version of the bmc firmware next (everything is up to date currently). Bmc settings page in bios is inaccessible so I can't see or change anything bmc related there.

    Xeon D-1541 Quanta storage servers on ebay

    How the CMOS battery being dead manifests? I have a "bmc failure" on boot. I can ssh into the bmc, it has been flashed (twice) to the latest firmware. Every boot takes 5-10mins so troubleshooting is a wee bit time consuming. After a lot of fiddling I got bmc access after a flash (earned a beer...

    Xeon D-1541 Quanta storage servers on ebay

    Thanks for the help. I got one running fine out of two I ordered after some hardware and software tinkering. Other one was somewhat beaten during transport and has physical damage. Waiting for a response from seller so I haven't really spent time with this one, apart from one evening. As the...

    Xeon D-1541 Quanta storage servers on ebay

    I finally found the working version for the storcli. The one off the broadcom site didn't recognize the controller even though sas3flash listed it. I tried the broadcom storcli on embedded efi shell, on linux and on windows server. The one downloaded from here...

    Could you write up the versions of sas3flash/storcli and methods used? I've tried integrated EFI shell, no luck, I tried on linux as well, no controller found. And as I have no bmc access, either, I feel like I'm running in circles.

    Xeon D-1541 Quanta storage servers on ebay

    It didn't sadly pick up an ip via ipmi. I'll try to troubleshoot more in the coming days if I find time. Thanks for the help! Thanks for the zip! Firmware seems to be available via qct.io site but lacking the bios files for some reason :confused: Edit: is there a user manual available...

    Xeon D-1541 Quanta storage servers on ebay

    So after Fedex initially promised the shipment to be on 10. day of February, I finally received two servers today on the 25. A tad bit late, but not a big deal. Luckily kids were at grandparents so I had a free evening to spend it with best way I could imagine - tinkering with new hardware...

    Xeon D-1541 Quanta storage servers on ebay

    So just to recap, flash order is: 1.) Bmc 2.) Sas expander 3.) Bios? I'll hopefully get my hands on these come next week. Any news on non-java iKVM?

    HP Proliant DL380p G8 vs Dell PowerEdge R720

    I've owned multiple second hand servers from dell and lately hp ml350p gen8 (which I sold a few weeks ago). Personally due to hp not offering isos anymore and their used component scarcity (I had to ship a drive cage across the pond) I won't be buying into their ecosystem at this time. HP's gpu...

    Ordered a few after selling off an old server. Shipping across the pond costs more than the servers, but such is life of a homelabber.

    EU Rackable NM46X 12-LFF chassis 60€ BO

    What's the difference between Rackable Tyan and Arima? I was considering buying one to use as a disk shelf to accompany my R520, just add a power button straight to the psu and connect dell h310 to the backplate - any thoughts?
