comment RAID rebuilds and unrecoverable read errors
Signal-to-Noise issue I guess - either way it depends on which particular make/model - there's no one answer that fits all.

comment Windows Server 2012 DHCP and OSX Devices
Is this 2012 or 2012R2 and is it up to date with patches? also are you running this box as both a DC and DHCP server and if so are you running DNS on it too?

comment Is an HP Proliant 350e Gen8 server appropriate for Primevera and Sage applications?
Shouldn't be saying this but they're getting rid of the DL380e model in the Gen9 range and moving it down to being a 1xx series box - they've not sold well (the DL380p remains the best selling server of all makes/models).

This product was discontinued nearly 5 years ago, serverfault is for professional sysadmins who would never consider using unsupported code.

@ultrajohn - if you build this you're going to be supporting it A LOT going forward, it looks borderline unsupportable to me/us sorry.

comment CentOS 7 x64 and HP Proliant DL360 G5 SCSI Controller compatibility
Yeah, so use a version of Centos that's supported by the hardware you have or change your hardware - what's complex about this?

comment DHCP server hardware
Ask yourself the question how will your user's systems manage if the DHCP server is down - if it being down isn't a problem then perhaps a regular PC might suffice, if it would cause problems use a proper server. As for the actual load, 8000 DHCP requests is nothing, the CPU in a cell phone could handle that ok.

Good spot on the unbuffered - I've never heard of anyone ever using that so it didn't leap out at me, well done

If you'd read our 'what this site is about and what it's not' information on sign-up you'd know that we don't do product/service recommendations, we're also about fact not opinion. Please don't post again until you've read these help pages.

comment How to configure network adapter on ESXi?
This site, as I'm sure you saw when you signed up to it, and definitely didn't just ignore, is for professional sysadmins - it's not for people 'just having a go at stuff'. You need to get trained or read the manuals - either would be better than just flailing around in the dark and expecting people who DO know how to do this to dig you out of your own-made crap. I'm pretty sure this place isn't for you, hopefully you agree.

comment EPC mode on Seagate Constellation using Linux
I've just spent at least 20 minutes looking for this, and my google-foo is reasonably strong, and got nowhere, I know what it does but I'm as confused as you as to how you configure it - sorry. Good question though :)
