@Elger My answer was not incorrect. It's unfortunate that your users were inconvenienced, though.

comment Dell PowerEdge R710 ESXi installation [on which disk should I install?]
@RobM That hinges on the presence of a SAN/NAS and VMs located on shared storage. Embedded mode + shared storage means you can vMotion your virtual machines off of the host with failed media and repair at your leisure.

@ProBackup Try hitting F10 for the Intelligent Provisioning utility between OS installations.

Depends on Nexenta version. 30s was the default commit time for awhile. It's shorter now.

@ProBackup You should be able to install the OS from external DVD without issue. Once done, unplug your DVD and use the OS? What's missing here?

Can you provide more information about what you're trying to do? In my experience, I rarely use external USB CD/DVD devices on these servers because the ILO provides media boot capabilities (e.g. you shouldn't need a USB device). So this sounds like an edge case. Could you walk us through your workflow?

@Rex There are two SSDs connected to one controller. A 6Gbps RAID controller has 6Gbps bandwidth per SAS/SATA lane.

@Rex "x4 and x8 PCIe slots" were tried. The card has two discrete 6Gbps SATA SSDs onboard, so there is a speed bump available once/if PCIe x2 is negotiated.
