    convince me about Ubiquiti

    Think you are seeing people praise the USG and AMplifi product lines. I have a full setup of USG 3 port router, POE switch, and access points. All this is managed by a cloudkey (Unifi controller) which works great. I bought all this due to convenience of single point of management.

    Alternatives to DFS for Server Duplication

    Both. I was using a internal tool on a NAS and it broke. So i switched to viceversa for small and large file transfer. viceversa was my go to when a user would open a ticket and say they had missing files. Typically it was due permissions. It allows incremental and full syncs.

    Alternatives to DFS for Server Duplication

    1. No progress bar in robocopy. While you can add one to powershell, it wouldn't be very much value. 2. This is robocopy. You either let it run or abort and start over at the beginning. It'll rescan all files until it find a file that has been modified since last sync or hasn't synced to...

    Alternatives to DFS for Server Duplication

    You can use powershell and do a get-content command. Robocopy against a folder further down the tree. This takes some knowledge of powershell/robocopy though. Below is snipplet of powershell script i used to migrate 10k folder in a single directory. It would choke if i did root folder against...

    Alternatives to DFS for Server Duplication

    Caution with robocopy if you have millions of files. It'll try and index all files/folders before starting to sync and if you don't have enough memory, you're in trouble. I can vouche for rsync working on large files. I just migrated to a new NAS at home and moved 7TB with it small and large...

    Port forwarding problem, i'm stuck

    Did you configure the IP/DNS name to forward traffic on these ports to the windows PC? Also is the service using these ports running on the PC? Can you provide screenshots of the router configurations? You can black out IP/personal info.

    VLAN question

    You can go with VLAN 1. Any switch you plug into the future will have all ports on VLAN 1. why it not recommended. We need to resolve the slowness part. Sounds like you have a loop. Recommend enabled loop protection on all three 10G switches. See attached from manual. Once enabled see if any...

    VLAN question

    You are correct for 10G-SW2 about port 2. I confused the red lines. Tagging traffic is only required when you need multiple vlans to be carried over same port.

    VLAN question

    According to user guide for trendnet’s teg-7080es trunking is to combine ports on these switches. Wouldn't be of any value for you with vlans. trendnets trunking = LACP/ether-channel on other switches, which is combing ports for redundancy/throughput. I havent used these switches before.

    VLAN question

    You need to setup TAGGED ports on ports used between the three switches for vlan 1 and 30. This should allow the devices in these vlans on seperate switches to communicate with each other. SW1 - I'd TAG VLAN 1 and 30 on ports 2 and 3. SW2 - TAG VLAN 1 and 30 on ports 1 and 2. SW3 - TAG VLAN 1...

    Question about data migration speed if migrating 2 drives in tandem?

    Depends on your network. You’d only clog up your device. Don’t think you’d impact other clients unless you switch is underpowered.

    Question about data migration speed if migrating 2 drives in tandem?

    USB3 would be slowest point from looking at numbers. 640MB/s is roughly max. You got room for a few more imo. In my experience, smaller files take longer to migrate.
