  1. Last time I saw something like this it was a fake Intel network card. Does the card have a yottamark validation sticker on it?
  2. Then it is very likely you have exceeded the write endurance of the drive. I have seen similar behaviour on SSD controllers in the past when a drive has expired all its flash write endurance.
  3. I would suggest checking the write endurance left on the drive, people seem to forget that SSD's are a consumable.
  4. In UK money, that would be around £60 which is about 66 Brexit currency
  5. When you flashed to IT mode, did you enter the original configuration for the controllers SAS address as part of the end process? I've seen this when the controllers SAS address isn't specified during the flashing process as a few guides miss it and its quite important as it provides the pathing for the pass-through to the disks (SAS Addresses) behind the controller. Some OS's don't require it to be present but Windows 2012 R2+ has always needed it. If you are unsure what the SAS address of the controller is, it is usually labelled on the device physically (assuming the label hasn't go
  6. AData SSD's are absolutely garbage, always have been and always will be. Did some testing with 8 su800 sata units as cheap consumer replacements on request of a purchasing manager to try and save on costs...... 3 units failed within weeks of the testing and verification phase they went straight in to the shredder, not even worth a warranty replacement. Buy shite, buy twice.
  7. As the old saying goes, buy shite buy twice.
  8. I'm with @Electronics Wizardy here, this is going to be a whole load of pain for very little gain unless you are solely doing this to expand your knowledge.
  9. Yea it can be virtualised but you are not going to get 10Gbit throughput from a virtualised network interface. You will have to use PCIe pass-through for the network interface(s) to reach that and place the interface in the dataplane
  10. Build a custom TNSR installation, its free now for home/non-commercial use. This is what the pfSense guys have been working on along side the pfSense project but uses a different way of handling traffic using VPP (Vector Packet Processing) and DPDK (Data Plane Development Kit) to minimise CPU cycles. These are developments on Linux to substantially improve per core packet processing capability. From around 1Gbit/s per core to around 10Gbit/s per core. https://www.tnsr.com/ https://www.tnsr.com/tnsr-vs-pfsense-software Can do 10G with ease, I would probably use I
  11. I'm assuming you have a dual socket motherboard with only 1 CPU populated? Only half of the memory banks are available if both sockets aren't populated. You will need to verify which are active in your manual but these are usually labelled A1,A2,A3 etc and the B1,B2,B3 etc slots are usually inactive as they require a 2nd CPU to be available. This is entirely dependant on your motherboard manufacturer of course so I would advise reviewing the manual to find out which dimm slots are inactive when using a single socket configuration. Also be aware that a number of PCI-Express Lanes wi
  12. You should really speak to network specialists about this and the ISPs you plan to be peering with to see what they do/don't support. I can suggest some additional reading for you; FastNetMon for detection based on custom parameters and upstream black holes to reduce network infrastructure impact BGPFlowSpec for more advanced upstream black hole rules to allow known good traffic types etc I would also suggest you to avoid trying to mitigate/filter attacks until you have 200Gbit/s+ of internet bandwidth capacity at a data centre. Considering you are asking this quest
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. No complaints here from AMD's current offerings, 2.96Ghz on ALL cores for 2 fully loaded 7452 Rome CPUs .
  16. 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.
  17. 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 cachi
  18. Would you like it simply displayed as a network share on the Windows 10 devices?
  19. 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 capacit
  20. 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 s
  21. 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/s
  22. 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
  23. 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 syste
