Well, per title - I have an ASR-72405 on a Gigabyte Gaming 7 x399. It will not post with the RAID card plugged in - without battery, without being connected to my backplane.
What say you? Mobo doesn't like card? Card doesn't like UEFI? Maybe card needs firmware updated? Maybe card is bad. I...
Ok. So, I need some help. I intended to use VMware for two or three VM's, but the freeware version doesn't allow enough vCPU's for my needs. One VM needs many vCPU's. The other, not so much.
Here's what I need to do: single Threadripper hosting stuff using Windows 10 or server. I need another...
I've been using a 16-bay supermicro chassis with a 3570k-based hardware. Filled with 4tb drives. I have a 24-bay that I plan to populate with 14tb drives as resources allow.
I have been using 2 HBA's for my current usage, and running Plex server from the machine. It transcodes fine. All...
Anyone running a sophos box that has experienced this: download/upload is at parity from the fiber box. Once it passes through the firewall, which has no active filtering of any kind running - I get full download, but only about 10% of upload speed.
Any ideas? Changed cables, removed all...
I have a pool comprised of a single vdev 16-drives wide in ZFS2. What's the harm (if any) of adding another vdev with a different number of drives?
16x4tb drives = 64tb - 8tb =56tb
I had been using a 12-drive chassis as backup, but want to throw it into the mix as well. What would you guys do...
Let me start by saying, I don't have logs.
However, when doing a whole, whole lot of reads and writes to a FreeNAS 11.2 16-drive array in ZFS2, I get an error...where soft shutdown commands won't work, even from the console. I get a rrdcache status 2 error. I'm sure I can replicate it...
Does anyone know what the max limit connections for windows 10 SMB shares are? I don't mean concurrent users. Seems Windows 7 had a limit that could be removed with some editing.
Any ideas on windows 10?
Ok. So I added an inexpensive Dell switch (left unmanaged, should just be a dumb hub) to my setup.
Fiber point => sophos box (gateway, DHCP, firewall) => dell 5424 switch => workstation
Now, I'm running a VPN on the workstation. It appears to drop my networked drives (volumes on a...
As far as I can tell, there appears to be a max height of 110mm for an air cooler in a 3u case. I've been running a 3570k in an open case, but I'm moving the entire rig into a more hostile environment and need to close it up.
What is the best option? Noctua, bequiet! Both have low...
I'm using ZFS ala FreeNAS. In ZFS2 (RAID 6 type).
Hardware: MSI Z77 Mobo, 3570k, 16(2x8) ripjaws 1600, 2 Dell/lsi HBAs, 16X4tb 7.2k Seagate Constellations.
I'm seeing very high wired RAM usage all the time - without any stress on it other than writing data. What's the wisdom here? Need more...
I've built a new (repurposed) rig for hosting my media server. Looks like this:
Z77a G45 MSI Mobo
2x8gb of ddr3 ripjaws
Two h310 RAID cards flashed to HBA's
Attempting FreeNAS 11.2
So, here's the bitch of it:
Using the vga port, minimum boot with both ram stick populated, it...
I've run cat6 all over my house, and now I have to terminate them in plates, and make additional lengths to get from the wall plates to my switching gear.
Anyone have a recommendation for a cat6 tool and ends?
Guys, I have a Lenovo IX that's been sitting around since forever. I'd like to replace the drives and use it as a low energy backup NAS. Any idea what the max supported drives are on these things?
It's old, it's crappy, but surely for this low demand use, it'd be ok?
Guys, I have these large 48v APC battery packs. They fit 12 cells, but maybe had fewer cells per tray. Someone took all the damn battery packs out and I'm not sure how it's wired. 12v cells. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for this? Can take a picture if that helps.
Guys, I think I'm going to build a rack to store my home server and ups. I see some guys that build them out of 2x4s and etc, but I'm kind of thinking that filtered air has benefits. Any of you guys built a filtered cabinet?
My 570x front panel arrived smashed into approximately 8,000 pieces. I have decided that I have an idea for a custom front and top panel - I have the top panel to make a template, but I do not have the front. Would someone be kind enough to measure their front panel and let me know the...
I've bought cat6 cable to run through my house, but I was thinking a powerline adapter may be the better overall solution. Currently I'm running a firewall gateway, wired to an Asus 66r, bridged to an Asus 68r. The wifi stability on the farther AP is crap. I can, with some measure of...
This is a pretty good deal on a first gen threadripper board. $260
My understanding of networking issues is less than basic. Please be patient with me, I'm trying to claw my way up the learning curve.
I have a FreeNAS box running in a supermicro rig. I set it up and mapped drive s: to the directory I am using to organize my media content (it's a Plex...
Guys, I'm a noob in need of direction. I have some spare gear: a10-7700k/8gb ram/unlimited rx580 GPU's materials to work with. I am receiving a few enterprise hdds and I'd like to set up a media streaming server in my humble dwelling. I was hoping to make a freeNAS-based rig. I'd like to stream...
I have the 100 post limit needed to PM (and thereby purchase things via the FS/FT fourm, but I lack sufficient permissions to post or reply in it. I must not see it, but what is the post limit or other process to be able to post to that section? Not a scammer, here. Just trying to...
