Right, but you need to set sync=disabled for the relevant filesystems.

I would disable ZIL for the moment, as that will help performance while you work to replace your ZIL SSDs.

comment ESXI 4.1 -5.1 upgrade
You can download ESXi 5 from the VMware site. If in doubt, just download the trial until license things get sorted. You will need some means of inserting the disk, though. If these are remote servers, I'll assume you have IPMI/ILO/DRAC or some remote media option. If not, get someone to physically insert a DVD.

What else are you running on this server to justify virtualizing it versus running bare metal?

comment Migration of HDDs in RAID 5 from a P410 Controller (Urgent)
Yes, that may not be a good migration... I'm not sure if the B110's featureset is the same.
