This obviously will affect your buying decision and you thought it pertinent to share to other would-be buyers similar to you. However, this appears to be due to the md driver thinking the array should be available to service requests during the resync, which causes it to run at minimum speed. No problems at all getting it to use the drivers and the array. Already have an account? I haven’t spent any time investigating the issue yet. They start calling me expecting me to fix the internet.

The only way to get rid of those types of people is to jail them indefinitely or exterminate them.

I’d guess your concern about the MBR and boot loader and such is based on an assumption that the array is hosting the OS as well? I’ve seen boot loaders both Linux and Windows corrupting, so that would be an aspect for me.

The 311 md driver plus the chip running as raw SATA controllers is comparable to what you would be doing if you used the card with its windows drivers, so I’m not sure I understand your vehemence in rejecting this as a solution.

I know that even with my hardware solution that it took me two tries before I was able to get it to do what I wanted to. Posted June 4, 31114 is quite the opposite. I would like to see that more so than any benchmark. If you 33114 a rebuild in the BIOS your server will be off-line during the rebuild.

Thank You for Submitting Your Review,! Sexually explicit or offensive language. Now, if I am understanding it correctly, that in the one case where you test the read and write speeds along with the CPU utiliziation that the OS was on a separate drive.

This would mean it simply couldn’t communicate with the outside world. Sign up for a new account in our community. Sure there are security issues, but I have seen at least as many with Linux as Windows. Intel made it really bad. Sign in Already have an account? Of course, being a hardware implementation, that probably wouldn’t be all that surprising.

Post as a guest Name. Posted June 2, It occurs to me that I may not have been entirely clear here. Sun has done a good job of building it, but they make is near impossible to write drivers due to their lack of guidance. We can’t really effectively do either.

The drives should get here tomorrow or possibly monday, so I’ll have something to report by next week. The Opteron overheated while trying, crashed, and burned; and had to wait 15 minutes for it to cool off before it could be restarted.


And, be ready to get problems in case you are using PIC sound card, tv tuner etc. What I would like to see is how you would recover from a OS failure. This makes it popular, so it is then sought out and exploited by evil people.

How do you bring the array back online, while fully preserving the data that already resides on it, especially if it is driven by OS? In order to gain freedom, you must give up security, and vice versa.

One downside of this approach is that you can’t just replace a drive and have the software automatically rebuild the array. Unfortunately, it does exist, and we have to do our best to protect ourselves against it. There’s no partition table on the resulting array however.

Hopefully I’ll hear back soon from H. That said, I guess it would allow you to use what limited capabilities the card promises in the BIOS.

It looks like the ide driver puked. Yeah, that’s not ideal.
