comment Vmware Server2 Last known working kernel version
This product was discontinued nearly 5 years ago, serverfault is for professional sysadmins who would never consider using unsupported code.

comment zeroshell with multiwan on virtualbox
@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 :)

comment Can I set vlan ip to anything?
VLANs are a layer 2 thing, IP is a layer 3 thing - the two have little/nothing to do with each other, though in practice they often align by design. It sounds like you need some training in this area before you make changes.

Good spot - so I know IBM rebadge NetApp filers but I didn't know they did that product set, sounds good

comment vSphere Host - periodic spike
We're a big user of ZXTM/STM/Steelhead - given you call it ZXTM does that mean you've not upgraded for a while as the name has changed a few times - if not perhaps try an update?

@mfinni - well yeah, but that's quite a specific meaning of that word - I wanted the OP to clarify if they meant that or something else

comment vSphere 5.1 SSO upgrade issue
Have you logged a case for this with VMWare? vCenter is a paid product so therefore you have a support contract and vendor support should always be called on before coming to SF.
