LOL, at least we have options now, felt held hostage before w/ ONLY 10G copper ports. Weak sauce.I hope they make some of the higher core count versions with copper NICs still all of my 10GBe stuff is inside the same rack and I can't use half of my SG500x-8f8t without copper!(plus SFP+ cables are expensive)
Already got new BMC firmware from Asrock rack.IPMI issues resolved.Update on Asrock Board Build..Mostly everything is good...Just have few issues...
1) Supemicro front panel connector is 24 pin...But asrock is using 6 pin... Building a custom cable to resolve this
2) LSI 3008 came with firmware version 8.Which gave issues in Omni OS...I flashed firmware version 11 from LSI site..This seems to be working fine now in Omni Os.
3) BMC firmware has issues. Reported to Asrock. They were able to recreate the issues I had.They are working on fix.Hopefully will get new firmware soon.
acmcool - Any chance you would mind booting that board to a FreeBSD live cd and see if the 10g sfp+ ports are recognized (and if so, let me know which driver they use)? I'm very much considering the D1540D4U-2T2O8R as the base of a new file server build and want to be sure those 10g sfp+ ports will work. I haven't found much information on the PCH CS422's that are listed as being used and all but if someone knows this information already please let me know.Thanks...Just ordered these
