    Age Old DNS Round-Robin Question

    Thanks for the reply. Basically I confusingly was just trying to reference something simple in which the longer failovers most DNS resolving clients were on trying A records or NS records and the typical timeouts on them. I'm working on design a special purpose Anycast DNS system. Just was...

    Do you not have any spare ones from like a case for the external jacks? Save the cash if you have them. They aren't anything special. Difference between you and me, all mine are loaded.

    Shame C7J0yc3, datastore1 and datastore1 (2), come on.... Haha, but looks like you've got a fun project ahead of you. Make sure that the guy before you also enabled VT support in BIOS. If he forgot the HT step in ESXi.

    Bad NIC or just my settings?

    Everything is all set for auto in IPv4, right? Just making sure since you are talking about doing a direct link in the future.

    I was running FreeNAS 8 with clients such as Win2k8 and ESXi. I hated the reboot for a configuration change too, especially when setting up a LAG when setting up remotely. I believe it started in 8, they revamped the iSCSI bits a lot and I find it more unstable. Performance is...

    If you want to use iSCSI, I recommend staying away from FreeNAS. FreeNAS is good if you want to do NFS/SMB/CIFS, but you were heading the right way with Openfiler since I saw you were using iSCSI.

    I bet you could boot pfsense off it by just replacing the compact flash card with one with pfsense on it.

    I'm not really asking why, because the better question is why not in [H], but what are you doing at home to need that? I've got to where I keep high bandwidth stuff in a datacenter.

    I'm pretty sure any high voltage wiring connection needs to have a junction box for it with at least a blank cover plate. In most states that is.

    ESXi 4.1U1: Passthrough for the Intel chipset on X8DT3

    I have a similar Supermicro board. Neither of the RAID controllers are supported natively in ESXi. They will both show up as just a non-raid controller. Looking at my ESXi pass-through menu it has the Intel controller with no dependencies so you should have no problem passing it through as the...

    I've seen it a lot on firewall equipment. The system goes into halt and basically says to power off now. It's similar to that of older Windows computers with the Turn Off The Computer screen after shut down. I believe it's because the boxes often lack ACPI abilities to save costs and that's how...
