Searched through the forums and can't find a definitive answer regarding a DAC for this setup. Hoping someone has first hand experience. If a gun was to my head I would buy this:

I need to setup a 40G network, I am connecting a single workstation with a server. As of right now, I only need point-to-point between these two machines. Distance is app. 15m.
Been reading up on 40G required hardware, but am a little bit confused, so I have some questions -...
I plan to upgrade my home network to 10 gbps (and I'm a bit noob on this issue)
And that's why I plan to buy several network cards with FPS + from eBay based on which I want to create a PC router.
What adapters can you recommend?

I'm remodelling my house and have to liquidate my lab unfortunately. I'll probably end up rebuilding stuff later after the dust is cleared.

Frist post here so I thought I would start by helping others.
Ok, so you know the cheap optical QSFP transceivers on eBay, Well it turns out you can use them.
First you need a MPO cable to use, and as a warning, they are not the cheapest things so be very careful when following this guide...

I've been hearing nagging to get rid of my E3 server. It was a 1U but that was too noisy for the SO, so I moved it to a mid-tower case. Now it's too ugly/cluttery.
So here's my goal:
Eliminate both E3 home-server and Intel Workstation, with a Ryzen build.
I was thinking:
What brings me here is a used switch I bought of ebay and is giving me a hard time to boot.
It appears that when the system should become ready to login and running, some errors start to appear on the console:

I've not dealt with anything but Intel cards in the past so I picked up a Mellanox to play with. Is this real life?

I have numerous old servers using Mellanox ConnectX-2 (MHQH19B-XTR) cards and would like to purchase a used Mellanox SX6015 switch which has only 18 ports but that is fine for my test lab.

I purchased a few Mellanox ConnectX2 adapters and put them in my various machines.
Initial install went very well, all cards detected, peer to peer network established and functioning, 10 gig, great!
Then I rebooted my workstation, the card wasn't there anymore. I trek down to the equipment...
Last year, before we decided to go to 40GbE, I bought all the stuff to set up a 20Gb Infiniband network. Since we're not using it, here's your chance to get the whole setup in one fell swoop. We got as far as powering on the switch, which seems to work fine, but never actually got the network...
