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...
There are always multiple views on this and I'm trying to get the best setup for my ideal use.
I want to ensure I have my name servers for web hosting failover the quickest way on a DNS resolve. I currently am running 16 named servers distributed across the US.
Which will failover the...
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.
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...
Tell that to my book: US: $39.99, CAN $49.99. :p
On another note, I have now virtualized my pfsense box so that it can enjoy the HA goodies. I also decided to add an Untangle VM for each of my internet connections running as bridged filtering ads and spyware and such, then pfsense still...

Simply put: lol.
Hopefully I should have some new pictures soon. I just started a tech consulting business a couple weeks ago and I'm playing catch-up on my network while working for my clients. Some new stuff I've got is:
HP Slate 500 - Hopefully will serve as a good quick mobile computer...
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...
No. It's how I feel every time I go out in public. Especially Wal-mart. I just don't see how some people are unable to do some of the simplest things to me.
Some of my stuff in my room I took a few pictures of.
I just use a Dell e6500 with a Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM, 500GB as my primary...
Started in '98, as well, programming dynamic websites, moved on to object oriented programming with C++ and such, then computer repair, then Windows servers, then Active Directory, then networking, then unix servers, then VOIP/telephony, and most recently would be virtualization. I've got a few...
