    X9DR3-F and Esxi 5.x NIC problems

    I'm having trouble with the Intel i350 dual port nic, only one shows up. I only have one CPU. On the console it says slot1_cpu1 for the nic. I just upgraded the box from 5.1 to 5.5 (5.1 only showed one as well) I've tried installing drivers from here and still have only one nic in ESXi...

    [USED] Ultimate File Server - 24 Bay SuperMicro Opteron Servers w/24 Port RAID $299+

    I had some light black dust on some high air flow areas. Very clean like you would find in a good datacenter. Swab the fan blades with a qtip, I'm sure you will find some dust. Perhaps some of these machines were never even used?

    [USED] Ultimate File Server - 24 Bay SuperMicro Opteron Servers w/24 Port RAID $299+

    Anyone running 64bit VM's on these? The CPU specs show they should be able to. However when loaded with esxi 5.1, I'm unable to do so. Not too familiar with AMD's lineup. Thoughts?

    [USED] Ultimate File Server - 24 Bay SuperMicro Opteron Servers w/24 Port RAID $299+

    Anyone running ESXi on these boards? I know they dont support IOMMU. According to the CPU specs they support AMD-V and should allow me to run a virtualized 64bit OS yes?

    [USED] Ultimate File Server - 24 Bay SuperMicro Opteron Servers w/24 Port RAID $299+

    I got two. I really wanted to get three but I didn't see a need. Ill donate the cpu/board to the local hackerspace and keep the other to screw around with. Both boxes will have e3 xeons in them.

    [USED] Ultimate File Server - 24 Bay SuperMicro Opteron Servers w/24 Port RAID $299+

    The two I ordered are much better than my two Norco boxes. I only wish they supported IOMMU. What is everyone using their setups for?

    [USED] Ultimate File Server - 24 Bay SuperMicro Opteron Servers w/24 Port RAID $299+

    Nope. I'm guessing most people will be gutting the board and adding in e5 or e3 xeons. I know of the two I bought only one will stay with the AMD board. The other will house another e3 xeon.

    dual socket motherboards

    Yeah, My co-workers are saying that the reason to have a dual cpu server is for HA. Id be willing to bet if one cpu shit the bed, the system would halt. IMO FAIL. Please correct me if I am wrong.
