I have one of these DCS6105/DCS6005 servers and they have been great. I now have a need to upgrade from Windows 2008 R2 to Windows 2012 R2 and have searched the WEB for Dot Hill RaidCore VST 5100 drivers. I have tried everything that Tyan, Dot Hill, Dell and SuperMicro have for embedded Raid Controllers. The current 2008 R2 version is DriverVer = 09/16/2010,5.1.5.00020
Has anybody figured out how to make the driver work for Server 2012 R2?
That doesn't surprise me. I've never even heard of a DCS 6125
It's worth a shot. I ordered some thermal paste and I'll give it a try.If after major moves, its always good to pull the cpu's and ram, re-seat them, and re-apply thermal compound. The TC has a tendency to dry out over time, and moving allows cracks and spaces to form between the heatsink and the cpu's, as well as ram sometimes shifts in its seating. This can cause hot spots and improper operation. This is especially true, if you move in cold weather. Its one of the reasons why many servers ship with the CPU's out of the case, and you have to install them on new purchases.
