  1. Thats only part of the testing suite, thats the MSSQL testing which can be done on Linux but I certainly wouldn't want to use Linux for MSSQL at the moment.
  2. Not having a Windows license makes absolutely no different to features or performance on Windows Server OS Plus its only on that temporarily until it goes it to production, but its under testing currently anyway
  3. lol, who licenses POC boxes? Must be mad
  4. No complaints here from AMD's current offerings, 2.96Ghz on ALL cores for 2 fully loaded 7452 Rome CPUs .
  5. It wont see the traffic if the switch port being used has not been set to trunk and the vlans on the trunk port are allowed in the port configuration. This carries for all devices attached to the switch that require multiple (tagged) vlans per port.
  6. FreeNAS is not really for you then. I would recommend the following just taking an educated guess on TBW requirements, expected performance and redundancy, this is based off you wanting SSDs and assuming you have a H700 RAID controller *SO PLEASE CHECK THIS FIRST*; Purchase 8x 2TB Samsung 860 Pro's *this assumes your R710 has 8x 2.5" bays as your picture does not clarify* (these are not Dell certified SSD's but I can give you certainty they work perfectly in Dell Chassis as I have run over 5,000 of them in production) Configure the 8x Samsung 860 Pro's in RAID6 (enable write caching but disable read caching) This will give 12TB RAW and approx 11.4TB formatted Install Windows Server 2016 or above Configure your network, setup a static IP outside of your DHCP pool ideally and use network teaming and/or LACP if your switching supports it Configure Windows Server as a File Server Configure Folders as network shares If you don't already have a Windows Domain you can setup local users for granular permissions for each user Map drives from Windows 10 machines using '\\SERVERNAME\SHARENAME' and their appropriate user credentials If you have a Windows domain already, it would be much simpler but FreeNAS doesn't sound like the product for you. A simple file share using SMB via Windows Server would be better suited.
  7. Would you like it simply displayed as a network share on the Windows 10 devices?
  8. I'm going to assume you mean network attached storage if you were planning on using FreeNAS. The clue is in the name, FreeNetworkAttachedStorage. Can you be a little less vague on what your requirements are, none of us can magic up things out of thin air with out specifics of what you want to do. Answer these for me, it will be helpful to progress further; 1. Do you require access to the content remotely from multiple devices? 2. What devices are you currently running that will require access to the storage, Windows, MacOSX, Linux? 3. What is the total capacity you require? 4. How would you like the content displayed on the 'client' devices? 5. What kind of network capacity do you have connected to the R710?
  9. FreeNAS doesn't really play well with RAID (only) cards. The R710 will either come with the H200 or H700 RAID controller by default, these do not run in HBA mode (the non integrated H200 can be firmware flashed to do so) With that in mind, you will need to find out which of the two cards you are using. I wouldn't personally recommend using FreeNAS with a RAID card as it uses ZFS and ZFS does not play well with RAID it will be expecting pass-through ATA/AHCI instead. It would probably be smarter to advise us on what you want to do with the unit and we can suggest some hardware to suit. FreeNAS in my opinion in is quite poor, I certainly wouldn't be looking to run business critical data on it.
  10. You can use DNSShell for powershell to update/modify/remove entries from the Windows DNS Service. https://archive.codeplex.com/?p=dnsshell You would need to use Powershell to determine the DyDNS record, then input using DNSShell The following would give you the dynamic IP address $ip as a string you could then use DNSShell to input; $ip = [System.Net.Dns]::GetHostAddresses("DYNAMICDNS.VALUE").IpAddressToString Then you can use the Set-DnsRecord function in DNSShell to modify the A record you have specified. Some examples are here; https://devblogs.microsoft.com/scripting/weekend-scripter-use-a-free-powershell-module-to-ease-dns-administration/
  11. You have the FTP port open to the public, it will be scanned, prodded and poked by all sorts of tools from all over the world. This is absolutely normal for any service that is open to the public, expect it to get probed and exploited should an exploit be available for the software version you are running. I wouldn't personally recommend using FTP as it's not very secure, but it also depends how much you care about the content being sent over it. I would also look in to locking down the firewall rules to per IP (if static) if dynamic per DNS value and use a service such as no-ip to run a dynamic DNS service on the dynamic IP provided by the ISPs.
  12. If memory serves it was able to run 1.38 volts to get 4.4 stable (silicon lottery?) I did have an excel document full of configuration settings used for each step of the way but I genuinely can't seem to locate it on any old hdd I had a lot of problems with memory compatibility, I ended up with some Kingston 800Mhz FB-DIMMS KTA-MP800K2 and had to lax off the timings to keep things stable due to the FSB bump. I also had a corsair active memory cooler on the top as the memory modules run HOT. The whole system ran hot and the power draw was colossal but it was a really fun system to build, I've always been an enthusiast for dual socket builds as I have always worked primarily with server hardware with dual and quad socket mainboards. Speaking of such, I do have a pair of X5492's which OC'd really well, I think they surpassed the QX9775's with similar voltage, I still have those knocking around in the basement if they are of any interest to you? Got a load of old hardware like that just sat in the basement doing nothing.
  13. Ah cool, genuinely confused at the start of the video then i was like.. pretty sure that's the box etc I sent over.. took me about 2 weeks to find the door hanger and all the docs for it so glad it saw some screen time. I'd love to see it overclocked and pushed to it's absolute limits, the SkullTrail was a bit of a difficult beast to overclock with as not much documentation existed around the board. I reset the BIOS before sending it and just verified it would boot with the QX9775's as it was running 4.4Ghz daily OC's back in the day on both chips and ran stable for everything outside of Intel's own CPU burn test (used to just lock up on dual socket due to some timing issue that would throw up 'hardware failure' on an Intel version of a blue screen of death). Maybe LN2 and push for some world records ;)? I believe the board and 9775's reached over 6Ghz at one point? If it makes good content for the community just detonate the board with LN2 and massive OC's The system was still pretty strong in gaming, I also have a EVGA SR-2 & dual x5690's but the board some soldering after it got dropped during a house move If I can get that working, may send it across too as that was the SkullTrail's replacement back in the day.
  14. Anyone able to clear something up? I sent Linus this exact board, 2x QX9775 CPU's and some FB-Dimms from the UK @LinusTech Is this my board being used here as the box looks like the one I sent across or is this @Overl0rd's equipment? Trying to figure out what has gone on here? Top job for Overlord if he did send another board, cpu's etc but I don't get where the board and equipment I sent has gone....? Anyone from Linus Media Group able to clarify whats going on here? Just wanna know if the stuff I sent was working etc
