Could you please approximate weight for the 10pcs bundle with and without the rack?
Here are some answers from our tech.Could you please approximate weight for the 10pcs bundle with and without the rack?
As I can see on the pics it's possible to put more than 4 HDDs there, am I right? Is there any way to power up 4 additional HDDs?
Does server's backplane support SAS (you told that there are 8 SAS ports on the MB; what sas chipset is it backed with, by the way, and what connector type is it)?
And I don't see an option to order caddies and PCIe risers with bundles. Is it possible?
Does BMC have ikvm support?
Thanks a lot!
By the way, has anybody seen compatible hdd caddies? $55 for the 4 pieces of plastic is a little bit... hm... overpriced, I think.
We have a riser that works and fits. 10USD each plus shipping.Waking this thread up a little....
Has anyone had any luck trying to find bios updates for the s2ml?
Mine came with a pair of 2650's which are reported in the bios as 2Ghz cpu's but are shown as running at 1.8Ghz. Windows reports as 1.8 too. Anyone seeing similar?
Currently having much fun trying to get a pcie riser that will fit...
Yes, debian and esxi 6.5 installed fine. The onboard storage controller and Intel 10G NIC work fine with both.Sorry to reopen an old thread but I have just found these servers. Could be great but would love to know what they are like with esxi or could I install xpenology directly. Bargain hardware are now selling these in the uk. Quanta Cheap E5-2600 (LGA 2011) Sixteen Core Cloud Server (Configure-To-Order)
Thanks for the update, I have heard from bargain hardware and they have said it doesn't have any sas ports and only 4 sata ports. It's strange tho as it's the same motherboard as the one I have. Trying to get them to take a photo of the motherboard but we shall seeYes, debian and esxi 6.5 installed fine. The onboard storage controller and Intel 10G NIC work fine with both.
Other info worth knowing-
-The slow bios response is because of the default serial console redirection on these machines. You can disable the console redirection stuff in the bios and it'll respond normally.
-The first two drive bays are SATA3, all the others are SATA2. I didn't try SAS drives.
-The drive trays aren't entirely necessary. Especially with SSDs. If you plan on shipping it somewhere, you'll want to secure the drives with tape or something.
-The power usage I saw when metering was something like ~220w max and ~110w idle. (with dual e5-2665/128G/4 SSDs)
-Also, I tested an LSI raid controller in the pcie riser and it worked fine.
