comment ping timeouts with light http traffic on T1 connection
Unless you're having an actual network issue... why are you concerned with pinging Google's DNS?

comment ESX3.5 migrate running VM from disconnected host
Yeah, still seeing ESX 3.5 in use somewhere means that someone isn't doing their job. It's analogous to using Windows 98 in a business environment today.

comment Datastores Occasionally Disappear on vSphere Client
This sounds like a mess. Can you add the versions and build numbers of the VMware components involved? There's clearly something wrong with your NFS configuration on the Gentoo side.

comment Detection of consumer SSDs by enterprise disk controller in non-RAID configuration
The HP is too old to use SSDs effectively. It's also too old to continue using in a production environment. I would seriously suggest replacement. The Dell is okay enough for another few years, but in both cases, try to get purpose-built equipment.

Yeah, the OP's approach sounds very wrong, but they should explain why they're doing it this way.

comment ASA 5505: How do I access the DMZ web server from the inside using the public IP?
I use DNS rewrite for this. Why isn't that an option for you?

comment Install RAID driver on HP DL380 G9
I just installed this combination 30 minutes ago on a Gen9 DL380. It works fine. You may be running into another issue. Are you using a kickstart or customized deployment solution? Is the server running in UEFI mode?

You should use NFS... but I don't have an answer for your iSCSI situation.

comment HP ProLiant SE326M1 not booting from LSI SAS 9211-8i
You need to set the boot device in the BIOS of the server, as well as in the controller. See my edit.

comment How to install redhat linux on HP DL380 G6 server
The P410 controller used in the DL380 G6 doesn't need any special help or additional steps for EL7. The G7 platform shares the same driver set. The link that you posted is for G5 systems and previous generation P400 controllers.
