    ICX7150 for repair?

    I for sure broke the clip on one of the new ones and simply salvaged it from the old PSU and pressed it on. So if you can get the clips off the old PSUs cleanly, then you can worry less about breaking the new clips.

    ICX7150 for repair?

    I seem to recall that I just used a flat tip screw driver and maybe pliers to pull the hold down clip off the PSU and reverse it so the pins and the latch were properly lined up.

    A previous user in this thread straight had it failing to boot. 9.0.10 is alpha quality at best it seems. Edit, and here it is, previous page: https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/brocade-icx-series-cheap-powerful-10gbe-40gbe-switching.21107/post-338714

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

    I doubt you’ll get an unmanaged switch working. Static LAG still requires the other switch to be aware of what’s happening. Unless that Qnap is a smart or partially managed switch. As far as footage offload, would this be multiple streams or single stream? The single stream speed over a LAG is...

    The extremely simple set-it-and-forget-it local MS compatible DNS server?

    I can't think of anything, other than updating PiHole and trying to do some of the encrypted DNS stuff that requires me to use the CLI. Install on a supported OS is braindead simple: curl -sSL https://install.pi-hole.net | bash Updating is also easy: pihole -up Pihole update can include the...

    Arista .swi Firmware Checksums

    I haven't the foggiest what might be causing the difference; I haven't taken down my switch to update it yet, still running 4.25.3. The on flash file size for 4.25.3 matches my archived copy. The date stamp on yours is a day newer than in mine, and the timestamp itself is different enough to not...

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

    You would potentially have two DHCP servers in the same broadcast domain (VLAN 100) so devices could get the wrong subnet. Use dual-mode as indicated by Lone Wolf so that devices with no tagging get put in the default VLAN.

    EXPIRED $279:Oracle F320 (3.2TB) AIC

    My drives also had those test labels on them. Your SMART results pretty much mirror mine. These drives were powered on for years and only very lightly used (or they just have that much endurance, or both).

    EXPIRED $279:Oracle F320 (3.2TB) AIC

    Just got the two I ordered. Booting these in a desktop tower for testing and not my server, so the temps are higher than they will be in service. I can see the discoloration on the heatsinks over where the capacitors are. These things appear to get quite toasty. First one: NVME: Node...

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

    That Netgear does appear to have support for VLANs, so either it was configured once upon a time, or it can optionally ignore tags, which wouldn't surprise me on a consumer or 'prosumer' switch. Enterprise switches tend to be far stricter about such things. In Brocade syntax (this may be...

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

    What model was the Netgear you previously had? If it wasn't VLAN aware (unmanaged) and the TV equipment is using VLAN tags, the unmanaged switch will happily pass the traffic. The unconfigured ports on the 6450 just default to untagged VLAN 1; if the Freebox packets are VLAN tagged, the switch...

    Can you provide the output of 'show run'? You can wrap it in spoiler and code tags so it keeps formatting and is collapsed by default on page load.

    Back to the drawing board...Router & AP(s) for Home Network

    Fry's was fine until the kickback scheme (which triggered a number of supplier lawsuits), the attempted move to consignment model, and they were very late to the selling online game. They never really seemed to recover from that and got real aggressive putting the floor workers on commission and...
