Hi guys

I'm doing a document to prove that we need a cluster environment for our virtual machines, as we have only one IBM X650 M3 hosting a load of virtual machines at our datacentre. There is no SAN either. All of the disks being used are internal on the actual X3650 which I believe we have around 14disks. I'm about to find out what sort of RAID has been set up.

I am making the documentation simple for board/management, but wanted to include 'what's wrong with his scenario' to show the sort of problems that could go wrong.

The current X3650 M3 has dual power supply, so that can't be a reason. Storage though may be an issue as if more than two disks die, we would lose all virtual machines that are business critical.

What other possibilities are there? Faulty Ram? Motherboard dying? Faulty RAM?

Thanks for helping

I was wondering if there is anyone here with experience or benchmark results on the performance of cheap ebay RAM vs brand manufacturers? What is the difference, if any?

Five years ago I purchased Kingston server RAM with the following specs:

Kingston ValueRAM 16GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Registered DDR3 1600 Server Memory (Intel Validated ) Model KVR16R11D4/16I

I understand that this RAM is no longer being made and it is now becoming increasingly difficult to find this RAM.

What model of Kingston RAM has replaced this model of memory and will be fully compatible within an Intel S2600cp server system board that already contains 8 sticks of this RAM?

I need to purchase 8 more sticks of this RAM that will be used on the same Intel S2600cp server system board and I need to make sure that both types of RAM are fully compatible and work without any problems for a Server 2016 Data Center OS that will be running on this server system board.

Last night I used EaseUs to copy one hard drive to another.  There were zero errors on the transfer.  This morning I put the second hard drive in the computer and it started up and immediate started running Startup Repair, which it has now been doing for four hours.  The source hard drive is now dead.  Any tricks to get this resolved?

I'm looking for a high quality PCI Express USB 3 card with 4 USB 3 ports that will be fully compatible with an Intel S2600cp server board running Server 2016 DataCenter.

I had previously been running Server 2012 & then Server 2012 R2 on this Intel S2600cp server board (for five years) with a low quality PCI Express USB 3 card and there were no problems.

However, once I installed Server 2016 the Server OS would always bluescreen until I pulled out this low quality PCI Express USB 3 card. Without this card installed Server 2016 runs fine.

I still need to have a PCI Express USB 3 card with 4 USB 3 ports connected to this server and need to be sure it is on this server boards Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) and that it won't cause any issues or bluescreens.

Please provide me with a list of PCI Express USB 3 card with 4 USB 3 ports that will do this.

I had a job to upgrade some VM hardware versions today. all the Hyper-V nodes in the cluster are 2016.

I've upgraded the cluster version from 8 to 9 (that didn't cure my problem).

The highest Host Hardware version available is version 5 (server 2012) Why can't I see version 8?

Im running Get-VMHostSupportedVersion I only see version 5 (set to default)?

Whats been missed, why no version 8

I have an Intel S2600CP server board in my lab that is currently running Windows Server 2012 R2.

I need to replace this server board with another Intel Server board that:

- Is fully compatible with Server 2016

- Will accept the two CPUs & RAM currently being used in the Intel S2600CP server board.

What are some Intel server boards that will be able to do this?

Please let me know if any further information is needed.

Attached is the manual and service manual for the Intel S2600CP server board.

In this question I do not want a universal charger.
I want the actual charger that asus made.

If the new version is $100, then I would like to save money and find a used version.

I want to have an extra charger.
I have other laptops also and I would like for charger to work with other laptops. It is very important that it works with this laptop. Not that important that it works with all laptops.

What type of universal travel charger should I get.

Hi All,

I need to replace a battery for an HP 840 g2.

I don't have access to the device at the moment.

Im hoping to get one via amazon.co.uk, but the only ones they list are for g1's.

Does anyone know if the g1 and g2 are compatible is size etc.   Or if there is a MPN or SKU I can search for to get one.


Many thanks

During a render computer stopped responding and restarted. The RAID now refuses to mount.  Disk Utility sees it, won't
respond to requests to mount.

Is it possible to recover RAID-0?

Alright, this is probably a silly question, but I do not necessarily know the answer.  

I have a Dell PowerEdge 2950 (yes, ancient, I know) with 2 E5405 Intel Xeon Processors (2 ghz) and 12 GB of RAM running Windows 2012 R2.  

I also have a Dell Optiplex 330 (obviously, it, too is ancient) with a Core2 Quad Q9550 (2.83 ghz) processor and 8 GB of RAM running Windows 7 64-bit.  

I need to stream video with one of these two machines.  Which one is better?

Aloha -

Very condensed version of my problem. The BIOS of all of our vmWare hosts show a time of UTC 0. We are UTC -10. We started using a DR product called Zerto which looks at BIOS time when booting a DR'ed VM. As a result, times on VM's are 10 hours ahead. Resetting time on BIOS doesn't stick leading us to believe it may be a time zone issue. A friend said OpenManage may be a way to resolve this. But unfortunately none of us have experience with OpenManage. My perception of OpenManage is that it's used to set up a server but not tweak settings..... Any guidance would be supremely  appreciated.

Mahalo,

Hi Experts,

With regards to the recent vulnerabilities with Intel, and I heard that AMDs are affected as well, I am wondering if any action need to be taken for Windows 7, 8, 10, and MAC ?

Thank you

I use HD Tune Pro. What I don't like about it is that you can't test write throughput on production equipment. Bench Marking is so nebulous. Is there a package that would be considered the "industry standard"?

Enhanced Intelligibility Without Cable Clutter

Challenge: The ESA office in Brussels wanted a reliable audio conference system for video conferences. Their requirement - No participant must be left out from the conference and the audio quality must not be compromised.

I accessed iFixit website, formymobile.co.uk, repairuniverse.com, and techrepublic.com and can't find any complete guide.  My objective is to replace the charging port in an A1822 iPad.  I have the part, but no guide.   Thanks.

This question first originated here: https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29053053/CPU-running-at-100-after-memory-upgrade.html

All the HW details can be found there.
I had used CL5 RAM on a motherboard that took CL6 RAM. We assumed the processor was doing 100% because of this, and that it couldn't handle the full 8 GB that the mainboard was supposed to be able to take.

So I bought new 8 G B of memory, this time CL6 from here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/For-Kingston-8GB-PC2-6400-4-x-2GB-Desktop-Memory-DDR2-800Mhz-240pin-CL6-DIMM-RAM/222696177816?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

But I still have the same problem. When all 8GB are installed, the CPU goes up to 100%, when I remove one memory stick and am left with 6 GB the CPU operates normally. Suggestions?

Makes me wonder if something is broken in the motherboard.

With all together 8GB of CL5 ram (see the first link) + 2 x 1 GB of the same RAM from before and now 8 GB of CL 6 RAM (all together 18 GB), I wonder what I am going to do with all that RAM that I apparently can't use. I will have to look for motherboards that can take these memory specs. Any suggestions?

Seems like every USB I buy is formatted to FAT32 so only 4GB of (Whatever) is available.

When I reformat as NTFS I pick up all of the drive space

But copying into the USB is much slower.

What is the best remedy?

i have an acer 7715Z here - works fine; windows 10 on it - but both  USB ports mechanically broken
i am looking for a way to get USB ports in some way, to connect an extermaouse or usb stick
does something like an usb hub exist - that is fed by the LAN port, or SD card reader?
or do you know of other ways to get  an extra usb port ? usb 2 at least, maybe usb 3 ?
1 port is ok, but the more the better, of course !

Here's a photo of the inside of my HP EliteBook 8770w:

HP8770w what is next to mSATA
Check out the slot where I put the three red question marks — what's it for? The gold connectors at the top look remarkably similar to the gold connectors at the top of the mSATA slot, but I don't think that the laptop supports two mSATA drives, although I could be wrong about that. Anyone know for sure what that slot is for? Thanks much, Joe

I have an HP Microserver Gen8 which is failing to boot. It has an SSD boot drive (WIndows 10) and 4 SATA drives in the standard bays at the front.

I've got hold of an identical Microserver Gen8 and what I'd like to do is move all the drives across to this server which works fine. I've attached the SSD drive but haven't put in the SATA disks as yet. I've checked the BIOS and it can see the SSD drive, so that looks good.

The issue I have now is that the Gen8 server has a built-in RAID controller (Dynamic HP Smart Array B120i RAID support) and I'm pretty sure when I originally set it up, I didn't setup any RAID at the hardware level, so they were just a bunch of disks. In Windows 10, I used storage spaces with parity for software RAID.

So, my question is - can I put the SATA disks in the drive bays and boot up and it will see the drives / Windows Storage Space as normal or do I have to do anything in the HP provisioning beforehand? I remember that original server that fails to boot also uses the same B120i RAID controller).

I don't have a backup of the data that's on there and I can download it all again, but there's a lot of it (6TB), so I want to avoid having to do that.
