comment Migrate a zpool to a zfs partition
there is no such thing as a ZFS "partition" This isn't true. ZFS pools can be created with whole disks, partitions or even files as the pool members. There are plenty of good reasons to not use partitions (ZFS can leverage drive cache, grub is harder to setup, etc) but that doesn't mean you can't do it.

comment How good is the noise reduction on an XRackpro2?
I don't have a decibel meter, but it's done a great job at dampening the sound from my gear. When it was in a normal Dell rack you could hear fans humming through my office door in the hallway and people would occasionally comment on the noise. Now no one notices the hum.

Nope, my servers and clients are on the same subnet so (AFAIK) there's no routing involved.

Ooops. Thanks for catching my typo. It still doesn't work though, just a blinking globe on boot.

comment How can you reduce ambient noise from servers?
Seconded. Although the XRackPro2 12U is a little steep at $2k, remember it will outlive your UPS/Server/Disk shelves.
