  1. yes, google for site-to-site VPN between your routers. i have some Ipsec tunnels between Mikrotik routers, and it works just fine. and then you just setup proper routes and that's all.
  2. as for SSD, you should care about how it's being trimmed - connect it to Mobo Sata port(i read somewhere IBM1015 wont support trim on all SSDs), and use trim plugin to get SSD trimmed at least once a week. if you won't write to cache very intensive then your cache drive should last for years. i'm using Hardware RAID1(two 1TB HDD) as my cache for now, but i'm planning to switch to BTRFS RAID1 pool. but i'm not using my cache drive for docker - i'm mounting addition small ESXi virtual drive(SSD physically) for this.
  3. huh, my mistake, i just corrected my previous post - if you RDM a whole drive, then you get SMART and spindown works just fine - just tested it on my offsite backup server.
  4. by adding one more AP i mean connect it to a router/switch by CAT 5e/6 cable, so AP won't work as repeater on single radio. and BTW Mikrotik has also centralized management called CAPsMan - you simply choose which device would be central manager and connect all other AP to this.
  5. i agree with you, but it all depends - i have a flat with three rooms and in this case all in one router like i mentioned before Mikrotik Hap AC2 works very well. But when you live in house with two floors then separate router like https://mikrotik.com/product/hex_s and several AP is a way to go. and you can always add one more AP, other than buy one super duper Wifi device..
  6. i have no experience with ASUS or NETGEAR equipment, and yes, RouterOS are all the same for all hardware - it just depends on hardware which processes you can offload on hardware, and which ones are done by CPU. RouterOS is very rich on features on routing switching side. if you would like to try ROS, yes they have and CHR images - see here: https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:CHR and it have 60 day trial version with unlimited speed interfaces. according to configuration - ROS have builtin web interface, but more recommended is their Winbox tool - can run it on Linux too.
  7. according to write protection - see here, if that's your case: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/1008115 or try another google
  8. i think your command is ok, never used such RDM disks on windows. and yes, no smart info, no spindown, until you RDM a full drive. in one of my unraid servers, i simply create small datastore on ESXI side(physically on SSD), and attach this disk to unraid, and use it as unussigned disk for Docker image. but you can use that way for cache drive too.. if an SSD have good built-in garbage collection, then i see no problems with such approach until you are using your server very heavy with lot on downloads on cache. in such case SSD will exhaust very fast..
  9. you can use esxi RDM to connect hdd connected to mobo port to unRAID. i'm using this way my cache drive without any issues for years.. search a forum, there are several guildes how to do it. one search result from me:
  10. then i would recommend a Mikrotik products, like https://mikrotik.com/product/hap_ac2, much cheaper than your budget. it can do about 1Gbit WAN, have at least 200Mbit Hardware accelerated Ipsec VPN, some wifi - for me i have a cable on all devices that required more than 50Mbit traffic, so not a big deal.. and if you are familiar with Mikrotik ROS, you have so many configuration options..
  11. what are expected total bandwidth? do you need some hardware supported VPN?
  12. if you have an interest, i got it working. some manual work needed, but it just works then.. yes, it looks interesting, but lacks of 2FA authentication, if you wanna make it accessible public. just let me know, i can publish docker settings.
  13. condensed view is working again noticed on different forum..
  14. try re seating all sticks, if that not work, then try identify faulty ones and simply not use them. i would go for larger sticks, 8Gb stick costs about 15EUR, 16GB stick about 25EUR on ebay. see your Mobo manual, i often see that with all RAM Stick populated they work for slower speed. you can go for 4x16GB sticks - 2 per cpu.
  15. if model are the same, it should work.. according to your pic from BIOS - why only 20GB of RAM? one stick missing?
  16. did you tried both cpu's with only one RAM stick with each CPU? and remove all other connected equipment, like PCIe cards, HDDs, .. something weird is going on..
  17. unraid is not about a speed. with parity enabled array even with turbowrite speeds are not near lowest drive speed. i'm using slower drives - less heat, less cooling needed.
  18. for just a test use a single one. 800W is plenty..
  19. Have you some other PSU available, just for a test? simple standard ATX power supply wont work until it have second CPU cable or you have an adapter to switch from GPU cable.
  20. do you have an option to change default page width? i just don't like that page starts on very left side of the screen - i'm using Ubuntu and using side panels that are transparent (see pic. attached). i know, i can modify default css file and can do it with every reboot, so just a suggestion
  21. and i think, you should write a question to Supermicro support. in my experience they are very responsive and answer question about old tech too..
  22. Yes, you can use RAM with CPU only.. so, each CPU sees it's own RAM.
  23. how you populate RAM in slots? have your tried with both CPU and just one RAM stick for each? and without any attached devices..
  24. just for check - do you have all three power cords connected to mobo?
  25. FYI, one of the recent Win10 updates(?) simply disables TLSv1.. we have to apply registry patch to turn them back on as we have app that works no TLSv1 by default..
