I'm attempting to build a new media computer -
Samsung 840 Pro
EVGA 750 Ti
HD-PLEX 250W DC-ATX
I can't even get the OS installed. It boots up and the furthest I can get is about 20 seconds into the installation process. Sometimes it reboots before...
So, when I reboot my file server, after unlocking the encrypted volume, SMB needs to essentially be disabled and re-enabled before it'll work. This does not happen with NFS. Anything I can do about this?
Largest Pico I can find is 160W.
MSI A88XI AC
Samsung SSD 840 Pro
XFX R7-260X-ZNJ4 or R7-250A-ZLH4 (latter more likely as external input not needed)
I could set the A8 at 45W though I'd rather not but what I'm more concerned with is a discrete...
Some very odd behavior and I'm stumped.
Last night, scrub was slowing I/O to a crawl so I decided to cancel it. I'd also had some files that were mistakenly renamed so I ran a rollback on my General filesystem. All seemed good.
A couple of hours later, no network protocols work - all the...
Not a PSU question but I figured I'd come to my [H] brethren..
Trying to avoid 3-phase power in the DC to save on monthly recurring costs. They offer 208V 60A single-phase but I'm having a heck of a time finding a PDU. I'd like to avoid having to go with 4 30A.
The hits just keep on coming with this thing.
Things that I've observed - if I run CrystalDiskMark from a VM also on the same ESXi host, the results are fine. dd bench is still showing around 200MB/s write/500MB/s read.
I determined that uTorrent is a POS but the ZIL + increasing the disk...
Hm, Bonnie never appears to run? I hit start and continuously reload but I'm not getting results.
Just saw that Bonnie isn't working in Solaris 11. Will run dd bench momentarily.
Memory size: 8192 Megabytes
write 16.777216 GB via dd, please wait...
time dd if=/dev/zero...
So I finally managed to purchase all of the gear I needed and build my fileserver.
As expected, it's not behaving as expected. ;)
7x Hitachi 7k4000
Currently 8GB of RAM but will upgrade to 16 shortly (though the...
has this picture changed at all? I'm in the process of building a server around the Q as well, running into the same ECC/VT-d brick wall. The Jetway board seems most likely at current, which of course does not have ECC support but includes everything else I need.
Why is it so hard to find the following in one mini-ITX board:
16GB+ ECC Support (honestly not even a deal breaker)
2x Gbit LAN Ports
Hopefully this Ivy Bridge batch yields something better though I haven't seen it yet.
The closest two options today are the Jetway JNF9A-Q67 or...
Just built my ZFS box (mickinfickin' Hudson chipset and no IOMMU.... rage) and I got to thinking should I just wait to buy drives (preferably 7K4000's) when prices get back to 10-20% higher than last year?
Is anyone else finding themselves...
Looking for a quick confirmation that I am thinking about this appropriately..
Lian Li Q25B connected via onboard controller:
1x Corsair Force GT 60GB - OS (ESXi 5 hopefully)
A passed-through M1015:
6x 3.5" 4TB in a RAIDZ2 - 16TB of usable storage
1x Corsair Force GT 60GB - 8GB ZIL, 52GB...
I was wondering the same re: processor heatsink - hadn't seen much and I know people are probably trying to keep this particular case quiet given it's application.
NewEgg says the maximum cooler height is 80mm - this seems to fit the bill; the Scythe Kozuti and Shuriken should fit the bill...
Lian Li PC-Q25B
GSkill Ripjaws 16GB Kit
1 OS SSD, 1 L2ARC SSD, 1 ZIL SSD (might combine some of this, not sure yet)
The case will take 6 drives and I plan to fill it with 3 or 4TBs. Basically, I just need the controllers -...
Yes, the plan is to go with a ZFS build for this in a PC-Q25B. I'm not trying to get massive performance out of it so the onboard RAID will likely suffice but are there any boards that allow for a PCI option? I'm still trying to decide between Atom or an i7 board (dedicated ZFS on the Atom or...
