I'm an IT generalist, who is currently playing the role of a Windows/Linux Sysadmin (primarily focused on Linux and VMWare) for one of the largest CRM service providers in the world who is now Serverfault Valued Associate #00002.

I'm an avid (not particularly great but I'm avid :) gamer, and shooting sports enthusiast in my spare time.

comment Samsung 840 Pro SSDs in a Dell R720
Using non dell drives does not void the warranty, they won't support non dell drives (and they shouldn't be required to) but they will support any other component that was installed when bought, or bought from dell after the fact. You make the trade off of self support or paying dell's markup.

We run the intel 3700's in Tier 1 servers (web, sql, etc) and the Samsung Pros in Tier 2 servers (re-creatable data, temporary data, services we don't care if the drives die, etc)

@Marcin That's 100% incorrect, they won't support the drives in the server, but they will support everything else.

Ah yes that'll do it. You should write up what you found as an answer (we love self answers).

Can you post your span configuration and the output of sh monitor session <x> where 'x' is the session number you've configured.

Is this ISO a LiveCD, installer, or something else? What OS is the end product going to be on?
