Sorry to revive a really old thread but has anyone gotten nvme-cli to install on Ubuntu 20.04? Trying to update the firmware on some P3605's I picked up using the latest Linux Ubuntu live Cd but I get the folling:

It's on 'universe' repository. Add it and 'nvme-cli' would be available.
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository universe
Should do the magic.

Unfortunate timing, as chia farmers are driving the prices of these old drives up. A few months ago $200 would have been way overpriced for one of those 1.6TB AICs. Hard to say if prices will come down soon, though, or if they will just keep going up. My guess is on the latter for the foreseeable future :-(

Even before chia mining this was becoming harder to find -- prices were ok when you could find them but availability was spotty.

Now these drives are ideal for plotting chia due to 3 drive writes per day endurance. So good luck getting any from here forwards.

I just found some more of these for 199$. @M3kk if you still need drives here they are. They say they've got at least 90% drive life left which I think would be ~ 12.5PBW.


I think I'll probably make a new thread as well.

Thanks! I picked up one not thinking it would be an awesome deal but pretty great. Only 2.16TB written but over 52000 power on hours. Should make a great cache drive for UNRAID I think.

It may be off topic, but is there anyone using these SSDs with Lenovo SR650? The server functions at full fan speed (93-99%) when they are installed (tried in all PCI-E slots).

Suggest starting a new post titled "Lenovo SR650 & P3600\P3605 -- Questions" or something along those lines...
