    No idea, sorry.

    Painless upgrade from esxi 6.7 to 7.0u3

    I first tried the ISO upgrade method but that failed as expected (some issue where it doesn't play well with updates done via the online method.) So I created a temporary baseline called 'upgrade from 6.7 to 7.0' lol. Applied it to all 3 machines with no issues. Well, there was one on all...

    Interesting gotcha with datastore heartbeating in vsphere HA

    So I deployed a new NAS which had been serving up a datastore to vsphere. One of the functions was a repo of ISO files. Another was acting as the 2nd heartbeat for HA. Unnoticed by me, the permissions on the NFS share's root were wrong, and vsphere hosts were unable to write heartbeat files...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    I've looked high and low and can't find an answer, hopefully I just missed it. I have 2 stacked switches. My 3 esxi hosts each have enet connections to them, but not using LACP, just failover order (e.g. nic teaming?) Is it possible to do this for my OmniOS storage appliance? Looking at...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Ugh ugh ugh. No time to experiment - it isn't just that pool - nothing is working and guests are failing, so time to do a hard reboot. Damn!!! Even though it said jbod was stuck, apparently I/O involving the ssd raid1 (serving vsphere) was also hosed.

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Annoying situation just now. 4x2 raid10 of spinners, with 1 ssd as SLOG device. This is running on latest omnios. I meant to plug in another ssd to do hotplug backups, but pulled the slog device by mistake. Plugged it back in, but the pool is stuck: NAME STATE...

    Blast from the past. 2006 drive purchase from Newegg

    I remember back i the early 90's building a server running linux 0.99. Initially had 16MB (not a typo). Started needing more RAM. Best deal I could get for 16MB more? $300 or so.

    How to clean up orphaned SATA disk on omniosce?

    yea. if I had extra ports on my SAS controller, i'd move them there. i think i have a fan-out cable - need to check.

    How to clean up orphaned SATA disk on omniosce?

    Very mysterious. Sata hotplus was enabled in the bios. Rebooted omnios, and the orphaned drive is gone. Still concerned about that hotplug setting that napp-it says should NOT be set.

    How to clean up orphaned SATA disk on omniosce?

    This is puzzling. Looking at the appliance tuning screen, it says: *set sata:sata_auto_online=1 (do not set in OmniOS 151030+) omnios-r151038v is this wrong?

    How to clean up orphaned SATA disk on omniosce?

    that's what I was afraid of, thanks :) I do have also 2 2TB sata drives in a mirror for backups, so it would be nice to have hotplug work. I'll schedule downtime to fix this. EDIT: very weird. Looking at the config file now: set sata:sata_auto_online=1 <=== already enabled? Maybe I have...

    How to clean up orphaned SATA disk on omniosce?

    Doesn't that require a reboot to take effect? I'm sorry, I think I was unclear. I don't really want to enable hotplug, just to clean up that leftover device...

    How to clean up orphaned SATA disk on omniosce?

    So I just finished migrating from Linux ZFS back to omniosce. Everything is working fine, except I had a brain cramp and forgot to pull the sata ssd that had centos8 installed. Solarish OS don't by default hot-plug sata disks, so now the format command shows: AVAILABLE DISK SELECTIONS...
