    affordable (little) proxmox home server

    Hi everyone! I am looking for an affordable Proxmox home server; do you have any suggestions? Currently, I am running mainly two VMs: a pfSense and a FreeNAS. PfSense acts as firewall between LAN and modem, while FreeNAS acts as home NAS by handling 2x6TB passed-through hard-disks in mirroring...

    How much airflow for X10SDVT-LN4F (Xeon D 1541)?

    I just moved into a new house, and somehow during the move my server died. Here's my build writeup of that (now dead) server. I took this opportunity to do a little upgrade. The rebuild is essentially the same, I just dropped in a new CPU+Motherboard+RAM. Previously it was an ASRock...

    Need pfSense Hardware Advice for Gigabit Internet

    Hi All, A few months ago, I started a thread asking advice for pfSense hardware to support a 150/150 Mbps home connection. In the end, I decided to go with the APU2C4, and I've been very happy with that decision, until now. I figured that would hold me over for the next few years at least. But...

    Script Install Script for ixgbe on Debian/ Ubuntu

    I know a lot of folks are using Xeon D and with the latest batch of chips more folks will be using it. Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (even 14.04.3 LTS) does not ship with the Intel X550 driver required by default. Caveats: If you want to use a new version, change the version string under #installer...
