Why 6.1? 7.1's been out for half a decade??

comment Network Card with builtin VPN functionality?
Firstly product, service, or learning material recommendations are off topic on serverfault as we make very clear when you sign up. Secondly why on earth would anyone make such a thing? Just use iLO/DRAC, if you need a VPN create it in the router - this model just doesn't make sense.

comment VMware Vsphere Monitoring and Alerting Network Outage
Only just spotted this question - did you try doing this via a host vswitch port alert - that's how ours are setup, not via individual VMs but via the hosts themselves and it works great - actually we use SNMP not mail but they do work.

comment HP MSA 2040 drive not detecting
If you've tried different disks in different slots then I suspect the MSA myself - if you have a model with dual controllers try rebooting them both (not at the same time obviously!) and trying again.

comment HP MSA 2040 drive not detecting
The 1.2TB disks need to be on firmware HPD6 or later and the 300's need to be on HPD3 or later - can you check what versions they are - also I know you've tried different disks but what about slots?

comment HP MSA 2040 drive not detecting
What EXACTLY have you got - i.e. part numbers and SW version on the MSA - there is no such thing as a 1TB 10Krpm disk for this box, we need to know the details

comment HP Officejet Pro X476dw with Windows Server 2012 R2 - Manual Feed Paper Size / Type Prompt
I have exactly the same printer at home and my daughter uses Tray 1 for printing photos - this isn't via W2012 of course but she chooses regular A4 - not the preprinted version/type - have you tried that as it works for her.

comment HP ProLiant ML310e Gen8 install Windows Server 2008 R2
You've not put enough information here; are you installing from DVD and if so are you using one of the internal HP drives? Also have you looked at the boot config - I suspect you just need to put the DVD drive ahead of the disk controller in the boot sequence.

Use supported hardware, and please re-read our help on what this site is and isn't for - we're here for professional sysadmins, not people just messing about with consumer gear.

comment How to monitor and rebuild hardware RAID in ESXi?
If you're thinking of doing this with large disks (=>1TB) please don't use R5, use R10 or R6/60 - R5 is now essentially obsolete.

comment Is this price right?
Also you know it's got just a single core with no hyperthreading,the memory will be slow, as will the small disk - actually one of the new Raspberry Pi's would be quicker! i'm in the UK too and would happily help to fight your corner on this, just ask ok.

comment Single E5-1600v2 on Dual Socket motherboad
It might physically work but Serverfault is for professional sysadmins and we inherently only work with supported configurations, anything else isn't considered professional sorry.

comment znapzendzetup create fails indicating it can't find SRC filesystem being created
You know we have a policy about spam right? You're asking 'questions' and answering them about your own product - this really isn't on, it's just self-promotion!
