    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    I've updated. Unfortunately, I have to wait a month to see if the update works :-) Thanks for your help, _Gea.

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    I am running OmniOS r151008 and Napp-It v0.9e-1_preview. I've had a scrub job setup for a while now that never runs. I have to run it manually. I've tried re-creating the job, but have the same issue where it refuses to run. The job uses the "First Sunday of the Month" @ 23:00 hours. It was...

    Supermicro SC846 4U JBOD Replacement Fans

    So, the SM 846 arrived yesterday. I put up some pictures and a short video on Google+. Here ya go. The PSU fans weren't that loud at all. I know the case fans will be so I'll be looking for quiet chassis fans now. Thanks for everyone's input!

    Supermicro SC846 4U JBOD Replacement Fans

    I do have an SM motherboard (in my Sig). I will be running ESXi for the foreseeable future. I do not plan to fill the chassis right now. I will have 4 SAS drives and possibly 7 SATA drives. We'll see. I know SATA drives don't like being on an expander, but this is only a single expander and...

    Supermicro SC846 4U JBOD Replacement Fans

    Didn't do the job of cooling? That's the problem. Those backplane fans not only cool the drives (which I won't even be nearly filling up yet), but they also cool the CPUs. I've got dual Xeon E5520s with the SM fanless heatsink. I hope the 120mm fans I have will work. Do you have a picture...

    Supermicro SC846 4U JBOD Replacement Fans

    Thanks for the info. However, the chassis does come with fans, I'm just certain they're noisy. The motherboard going into the chassis is the one listed in my sig. Supermicro X8DTH-6F with dual CPUs and passive heatsink fans.

    Supermicro SC846 4U JBOD Replacement Fans

    Haha! Every time I've powered up an SC846 JBOD, I've been in a server room. It's always noisy in there :-) Guess I'll find out next week!

    Supermicro SC846 4U JBOD Replacement Fans

    I've won an eBay auction for a used SM SC846 4U JBOD. I'll be putting this in my apartment. I know the fans are quite loud. They're 80mm, but they're very thick. They have 3 pins. There are 3 along the backplane, and 2 at the back. Does anyone know of any good, quiet replacement fans for...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Tonight I ran an update from r151006 to latest stable (r151008). After the update ran, i got a message that Napp-It was creating a boot environment for 0.9b. I had been running 0.9e-1 before the update. After the machine reboot, NappIt won't come up. I tried to reinstall but got a Perl...

    I think this should suffice. Thanks very much!

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Napp-It Question/Feature Request: Would it be possible for the scrub/snap time periods to be adjusted? Specifically, I don't want to scrub my pool every week. I'd like to do it once a month on a Sunday. Say the 4th Sunday of every month. From what I can tell, that's not possible now...

    SM SC847E26-RJBOD1 good?

    It's good. I'd say upper middle of the range. In my mind, it doesn't get much better than the DataON JBODs. They have a 60 bay JBOD. It's a wee bit pricey. The SuperMicro chassis/JBOD is good if you don't need a highly available configuration. The SM JBOD only has 2 inputs and no user...
