    Your home ESX server lab hardware specs?

    Awesome, thanks! I saw the casters on yours, did you go under the posts where you mounted the rail? Or did you mount differently? I'm curious from a weight perspective.

    Your home ESX server lab hardware specs?

    That looks really nice and a very nice write-up. Even a 34u rail set is ~$75 and some lumber would provide for a relatively cheap rack. (y):athumbsup:

    Help me decide on a new server this tax season!

    If it's still doing what you need, why not upgrade the ram and drives? When you talk about cost of them, what do are you referring to? When you say you aren't stoked about it, does that mean it's lacking in performance? Or just time for a refresh? I have the same model DL380g6. The 1tb...

    Nutanix CE? What are you running?

    How so? Are you talking about the foundation process which deploys the hypervisor with it? VMWare works much better than AHV? Because of feature we grew to love? Other? Genuinely interested on your perspective.

    Just giving a bump. It looks like I didn't include the PUBLIC Discord channel for those interested. Emphasis on the PUBLIC if you ask questions related to business. https://discord.gg/XW8XgP

    I'm with you but it still bothers me lol I just don't have a proper cabinet to do quality management, even with some cable management rails to shove the cables behind would be helpful. There is nothing like a quality cable mullet though :D

    Odd inquiry: Solidworks 2020 and Plex VM graphics card

    Thanks, I was using that and trying to cross-reference with the Solidworks page. Running 3 would likely be fine, unlimited would just be the icing on the cake. On CL, someone was selling a Grid K2 for a good price but it's not on that list and not a lot of info for plex since it's primarily for...

    Odd inquiry: Solidworks 2020 and Plex VM graphics card

    Thank you. I will have to get more info on expected use. It is for training but for work and I don't know the level of details they use there. For the solidworks / plex, I was trying to see if I can hit two birds with one stone to not waste money on parts. Looks like a p4000 can be had for...

    Odd inquiry: Solidworks 2020 and Plex VM graphics card

    Trying to help a friend build this on a budget of course. That budget was $300 and a laptop if possible. After I looked at the recommended spec, I told them that it is quite a stretch since the recommendation is using Quadro or Radeon Pro GPUs and it'd be closer to $1000. Even using GTX/RTX is...

    Well.. I'd say it's passing the burn-in test. Still crunching along. Can you tell where it started? lol If I remember correctly, the 2019 stuff was 10 cores of L5638 CPUs.

    Post your "Ghetto Mod" pics

    Stole my pic from the Distributed Computing section. Was running 2 PSUs with paper clips because I didn't have the adapter and the local shop didn't have a replacement PSU for the DOA they sold me. Did this so I could try running it ~50% until I got a good PSU.. Ended up breaking this one too...

    Update. Wow, finally got a PSU. My stubbornness to support local business had me waiting. The store was waiting for EVGAs to come in and still haven't received them but they did get some Thermaltake 1200W so I picked one of those up AND IT'S ALIVE! I'm able to properly power the system! lol...

    Nicely done! The double-tap resize would definitely be annoying, I thought it may have been easier with phone/touch screen if you were able to slide your thumbs from one maneuver to the next, but if you are having to press each button then it may not be much different. Clicked the 'crew...

    Small update. Finally got a proper PSU for this... EVGA 850 GQ Specs all looked good; single 12v rail, 2x 8pin CPU and modular for all the crap I don't need. Apparently it's DOA.. Not a fan whirr or even a click, no system led's...nada. I was so excited to get all the cores crunching. I was...

    SETI.Germany's 11 Annual BOINC Pentathlon (2020)

    Good call. It defaulted to 10GB. I set it to 20GB now just to make sure it does more.. then I can give the VM more disk. Looking at yours, I should do this regardless. I know have 24 active WUs and 1 in the chamber. Thanks!

    SETI.Germany's 11 Annual BOINC Pentathlon (2020)

    How do I make sure my points are counting? And whoops, I didn't have a team deleted.. good news I think I only had 2000points on this machine.. When I go on the BOINCstats site I see 0 points. It'll probably be a little bit before it shows me on the [H] team for Rosetta. Edit. looks like it...

    Sorry! Hopefully, I can make you proud :D And I don't see any pictures in the "Pictures of your DC rigs". Why not? I also assume you are going to [H]ard BOINC in a few days? Sorry, It's late and this probably didn't come off as humorous as I intended. Oh, and I plan to get a new kill-a-watt...

    New to me node

    Well. dang.. I'll still give it another go but it's not looking good. With your 1300W PSU, are you really putting that much load on it? What else are you running? I was looking at maybe an 800W PSU as a replacement but with getting shutdowns on 1300W, I'm wondering if that's enough.. I don't...

    New to me node

    I'll give it a try. I think I only unplugged power from the PSU and held the power button. I don't remember pulling psu from mobo then power button, is this what you mean? Either way, worth a shot as I don't have anything on hand that will work otherwise.

    New to me node

    Yeah.. I wasn't running half that size. lol. I saw the 80W avg CPU power and 115W TDP on cpu-world and figured I'd be OK with a 650W since I was only running the CPUs, board, SSD, RAM and a few fans. I'm guessing due to the age of the PSU, it gave up (soft audible click when pressing pwr...

    Pushed it with BOINC and F@H.. Was able to hit 58Ghz before it went offline :( Good news and bad news. Good news- The core system appears to still be good. Bad news- It was the PSU that was pushed too far. It also means I dont' have a PSU to drive this system at full tilt :/

    Installed. :D I'll pop over to that thread for some info but looks like we have to wait to find out projects to work. I'm going to wait for folding to complete, then bump the cores up. I can't get a good pic of this. It does look pretty cool in the dark though.

    Yeah, it is. Now to get a case to rack it! Agreed! I didn't expect the mounting plate and whatnot... Actually, he was mentioning having to put something together and it didn't click until I opened the box lol So far it's running. I got my VM moved over to the node. Hopefully, I can get some...
