    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    When I spoke about using your storage under a different VLAN, I should have stated that is if you had other devices that would be dedicated to talking to that storage. For your normal access to the storage server, you would use a different VLAN to communicate to it. I tend to forget that most...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Do you have a router that is routing already? If no external router, then using the switch as a router, does have some limitations in what routing it does. Setting jumbo still allows you on a per-port or VLAN basis the MTU I would segment storage from other VLANs i.e. internal network on one...

    [US] WTB: 12/24 Port SFP+ L2 switch for home office closet

    Hi everyone, I am looking to get an SFP+ switch to bring over into my new home office space. This would be basically for connecting desktops and other devices. I have 10 gig ethernet machines and some that could be used with SFP but not required. Used is fine, as the switch will be connected...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    I use LINUX for all my work, putty is available, but not as clean as the windows version. I just open a terminal and ssh into the Pi and run picocom to connect to the serial port and work from there (i.e. picocom -b 115200 /dev/ttyUSB24). The Pi is connected to the 15X USB to serial cables...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Just for constancy, all of my hardware runs at 115200, and I hate the slow interface as well. It is not the end of the world. Also, it is one of those, I want it to work this way why can't it kind of thinking.

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Nothing here that seems to make you think you can change the rate This is why I am confused, I tried this with expecting it to be similar to what the 7xxx versions did. Thinking like you, I tried it just in case it was hidden. Strange how, nothing points to baud rate being able to be...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    have just picked up a couple of icx6610s and I am trying to get the console serial port set to 115200, and what I did for the 6650 does not work. Setting this in the u-boot on the 6650 I used On the 6610s there is nothing. I read that others just used buadrate, as they are not u-boot Where...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    To understand your statement correctly, the 32/48/56 is the number of aggregate ports or SFP+ ports only? The following description is what is confusing me: The description says 48 in it be but s described as having 56 ports. Thanks again. Licensing, I get it now! Thanks, I had to read better!

    Looking for a server board that is DDR3 with PCI-E 3.x

    I did a search this weekend and today for the same, but nothing that does (4u) 15+ drives under 400 and would fit this MB. I would like to be able to keep this in a rack, but if I can save money, I have no issue with going to a tower type, but it needs to be able to fit 9 drives ( I am using Icy...

    Thanks, everyone for helping me out here, I ended up going down a rabbit hole with this one. Now after understanding this MB size and all I am on the lookout for a 4u chassis that will support this.

    Looking for a server board that is DDR3 with PCI-E 3.x

    The pins in the socket were bent on arrival as I had only remove the heat sink from the MB. I had not even noticed them being bent until after having pulled the CPU off. I am waiting now for the eBay seller to get back with me to do a swap. I had not done a close inspection of the board before...

    Looking for a server board that is DDR3 with PCI-E 3.x

    OK So bent CPU pins - I got it to post for a few seconds and it gave a b7 error code, but from what I saw online it still meant that the CPU was not going to post. I pulled the CPU again put it back in and nothing. From what I see then I should be able to get this to work with all that I have...

    Looking for a server board that is DDR3 with PCI-E 3.x

    I am accustomed to using chassis by the motherboard manufactures, with the PSU. The thing is I have another PSU rated at 1600 and a full 4U chassis for this all set in place. So I figured this should not be much of a problem. I have built systems from the ground up many a time, chassis, CPU...
