  1. XPEnology on ESXi or bare-metal

    ok, so with LSI 9201-8i i can view healt status and temp, right? but i need to i5/i7 for vt-d? is correct??
  2. XPEnology on ESXi or bare-metal

    The hardware is for ESXi and not only the NAS. The question is if to use NAS as bare-metal or ESXi, and in ESXi case "what hardware to buy". 2Nics is good for ESXi, 1 nic for nas and 1 nic for other virtual machines. If i use "bare-metal" i think that my "atom dual core D510" is still good, or celeron/pentium/amd a1 are perfect. But only alternative to RDM solution is Raid controller with VT-D? this for Smart and etc...
  3. XPEnology on ESXi or bare-metal

    i've found this http://www.gigabyte.com/products/produc ... id=4992#sp for dual gigabit and 6 port sata and h97 chipset. CPU i3-4130T or i3-4330 for the moment.. what do you think?
  4. XPEnology on ESXi or bare-metal

    hi, thanks to reply so, you have XPE as VM on ESXi? What is your hardware?? And another question, you use Windows Media Center as virtual machine, but as you have connected the screen? Streaming for xbox?
  5. XPEnology on ESXi or bare-metal

    i've already read these topic but I still can not decide, because the idea to use the same machine as NAS and as homeLab is a saving of space and resources.. so is it really that dangerous keep it as virtual?
  6. XPEnology on ESXi or bare-metal

    Hi at all, I should change my nas/server, switch from Debian to XPEnology, probably, and i can choose to use my "old" Intel Atom D510 ( Dual Core 1.6 Ghz ) for bare-metal installation or install XPE as virtual machine on ESXi with the hardisk connected as RDM. Pro and cons???? Thanks
