Seems easy. Alright, perfect. Will do it in two days when new unit arrives.
I will contact areca and chenbro though, to understand why it won't show through SES2..
Regarding the hardware information, I saw there is I2C protocol in both areca and chenbro expander, could this be a potential...
Running 1.52 too.
So I guess there's no way to monitor this kind of information.
The other day I found the fan broke in the Chenbro. It was really hot and this scared me.
In two weeks I'll update to the latest 2019 firmware, but first I'm fixing a Degraded RaidSet.
I suppose I only need to...
Does anyone with a 1880i can confirm if fan speed is reported ??
I can't find that info...
Also, I am using a Chenbro expander, but no hardware info is reported.
Do I need a special I2C cable, or that info should be reported through the sff8087 ?
I'm pairing a ARC-1880i with a Chenbro SAS CK23601.
How can I pass the drives, temperatures, and all the info from the expander to the Areca?
Is it through the I2C connector?
If it is, is there any special connector to link between the Areca (8 pin) to the Chenbro (4 pin) ??
They are connected...
Europe. I have relatively fast (100-200 Mbps) connection to the main European Internet hubs, like London/Paris/Amsterdam/Frankfurt.
After a small analysis of Amazon it actually looks like the one that offers better price per storage.
I read a little bit about the service and I'm only a bit...
I am in search of some cloud storage service which gives a good price.
I would be happy with basic SFTP or SSH access to Upload/Download the files.
It would need to have at least 12TB.
Basically I would like it to work as remote storage.
The services I found online only work as...
So I could for example try to backup 1TB of "pure" data into the Tape? The thing is, I have no idea what will be the final result :p
How can one know if it is too much data to be backed up ?
At least with EaseUS backup I was being told that I had around 800GB free, but then I had no idea during...
Finally I received the LSI 9217-4i4e and attached my tape drive to it.
It is now being recognized by WHS.
I tried Easeus backup advanced server as a tape backup software. (Couldn't find anything better for windows)
But now there's something I still don't understand.
First, I am already able to...
I'm still not sure about which software could be used. (also I'm using 2008R2)
In any case I was trying to check on "easeus backup" since I've read that it supports tape backup, but quickly found out that I needed the mentioned SAS HBA to support the tape drive.
Now, I'm ordering a graphics...
I bought a HP StorageWorks Ultrium 1760 LTO4 Tape Drive with external SFF8088 and a few LTO4 tapes.
I pretend to do backups to my 12TB share and keep them on these tapes in a separated physical location.
I though it would be possible to connect the tape drive to my Areca 1880i...
I came from WHSv1 into 2011 because of the redundancy reason.
I started by using 3 or 4 disks with the Drive Extender, and quickly realized that it offers no security to my data.
After loosing 1 HDD and every file that was inside, I stepped up to a raid6 with whs2011.
But now, I would still...
I'm interested in knowing a little bit more about file integrity with Windows systems.
I have a WHS2011 with 16TB in Raid6, I don't feel any problems with loosing data since I am running Raid6 and will also start to make monthly (enough for me) backups to LTO5 Tape.
I am curious...
I am in search of a case, near mid-tower size to handle at least 15HDD for a DAS/JBOD.
The cheapest options I found are based on those 9-bay DVD Duplicators.
I woud then use 3x (3x5.25 to 5x3.5) backplanes to hold 15 HDDs.
Output would be from a HP SAS Expander to an Areca 1880...
Well, I did.
Lets just say that the smart fans at least with me have kept a minimum level which is a bit noticeable ~50dB (measured with smartphone) and never turn off.
I am preparing to change the fan for a silent one with lower rpm. The change is easy, and I think it will be worth.
Does someone know a brand/model of a fan to change the original one?
It is on the last few days of life and making extreme noise, I want something that would fit in the same place.
Also my Chanbro 23601 has what I believe to be the same size fan and I would fit this new model in both of them...
I assume you refered to 850 Pro right? that's the one with 40nm 3D NAND MLC?
You are right, there won't be too much writes on it, it will although be working 24/7/365.
Both the 128 and 256 models are same specs right?
I want to upgrade the current ForceGT 64GB that I have on my server.
They are 2 in Raid1.
What would you advice me between Samsung 850 Pro 256GB vs SanDisk Extreme Pro 240GB ??
Which one is faster, more reliable, do both use same NAND type ??
One time something similar happened with me when I was using 9k Jumbo frames when connected to the router's 10/100 port which didn't knew very well how to deal with some websites.
I am not sure if some pages didn't load partially or at all, can't remember exactly.
I am going through ebay to try and find a nice server to host 12x drives and run a few VMs.
I have found the C2100 to have good prices but I have some doubts about it.
In one of the mezzanine ports it only supports the LSI 2008 SAS card, is that right ?
I want one card...
It's really strange this card being the one that does not report RPM values :(
This Chenbro it's actually a LSI SASIIX36 chip.
It might pass the temperatures (I am actually not sure), I was just asking how do you check them.
Did you set some SNMP or how are you viewing these alerts?
How do ou think I can add the RPM value to the card? I had 1.49FW and no RPM, and yesterday I updated to 1.52FW and still no RPM.
By the way, do you return values from the backplanes via the Areca?
I have a chenbro expander which I also wanted to monitor (temps & rpms) but I have no idea how to...
The issue I believe it's not actually with Gmail, it's more with the Areca's mail authentication (lack off) methods.
Do I need to have MX Records and domain control or it's just literally a relay to another authenticated mail server ?
I am trying to set email notifications on an Areca 1880i, am I incorrect to assume the card does not know how to work with SSL/TLS ?
I was trying to set it up with Gmail but I guess it only works with encryption.
I guess I have to take some time and compile it for windows.
In any case, I tried with different Network cards, and I got better results.
Transferring files through samba on my Macbookpro, I got speeds between 920-970Mbit/s
So I'm starting to guess there's some misconfig between the two...
Came back home and I found a new firmware, updated and I did reset to defaults.
But still, the issue persists.
I took some prints, could this be the switch dropping packets?
Top CMD is Linksys. Bottom CMD is D-Link.
As you can notice, the D-Link starts to really...
It is a genuine. It did bring all the original manuals, and firmware through console port and web management seems as original dlink.
Also, I did open the switch and it corresponds to what I was expecting from online images.
EOL or not, it is (should be) at the moment one of the top smart...
Well honestly haven't changed much!
I did change IP/mask, enabled SNMP which is at the moment being used to monitorize, once each minute, about 10 ports' total traffic, and mirror one of the ports that won't pass more than 30Mbit/s of traffic to another.
Oh, and tried both with and without...
I am really sad with this new 400€ switch not being able to perform as good as a 10 years old linksys costing 150€
But I still hope to figure out any strange configuration that I haven't notices. And let's just say that there's a lot of configs :P
I mean, both are switches...
At least close to default they should both give near line rate, or at least I would expect both to give 900+Mbits/s and 90+MB/s on samba...
I'll leave some pics at the end of the week because I'm not at home now.
I have Intel Gigabit CT on both ends.
For the price I was thinking about selling my old Linksys SRW2024 allowing me to get this D-Link almost for "free", but after seeing this performance, I'm thinking twice!
I have made a switch upgrade since I had one with a few years old (7), its web config was old and non-working with nowadays browsers, and I was expecting to get better performance overall with a fresh new device.
After watching a lot of reviews and stuff, I found a nice deal on...
