There is a lot about me that you will never know because the beta seems to have wiped my profile. :)

comment Updating Dell PowerEdge firmware on Ubuntu?
The SUU has OS and RAID config items on the same menu as the firmware. That is pretty ambiguous to me. When you "apply", does it modify the raid or start prepping for an OS install? I have a fully configured OS I don't want the SUU to anything except update firmware.

comment sata controller without raid support
No, it was a non sil image controller. I thought you might have found it and tried it since you had trouble with the sil image.

Did you find something? Did you try the Areca ARC-1300-4e?

comment Is there any reason to have 2 NICs on a server?
Is the more common term for what you are describing "bonding"? I have not seen this called "Trunking".

comment Server vendor that allows 3rd party disks
+1 Thanks, I also hadn't heard this and will add this to my list of reasons to try non-Dell servers. But please consider revising your question -- "Dell is no longer allowing 3rd party disks" is inaccurate FUD. -1 Your own link explicitly says it's only on some controllers.

comment What kind of SSL cert do I need for this vhost configuration?
Standard GoDaddy certificates provide both www.domain.com and domain.com in the "Certificate Subject Alt Name" field. Other vendors may do this as well. In practice this does prevent the need for using a wildcard certificate to deal with the www and non-www case.
