Just received my replacement DS6100, unfortunately the previous completely died so I lost everything since I returned it as a bricked unit.
Replacement comes with software version 22.214.171.124 which is newer than available and also has 500GB boot drives instead of 320GB so the upgrade has helped with me starting fresh.
Any who, before I start setting up this new device I would like to make a couple of upgrades and question something that has been asked before but I just want to confirm it is still the case.
Does the 3rd Ethernet port have any use yet?
Anyone got any recommendations on another 16GB of RAM and 2nd PSU? (UK)
Lastly, I was going to put 2012 R2 DataCenter and make this my main server if I get the 32GB ram but with 2016 on the way very soon I am tempted to hold off, either way has anyone done this with a clean install?
If anyone has done this, what problems did you have (if any) and did you manage to get all the drivers you need?
I am hoping to have 2016 with a couple of VMs for SQL 2016, Web Server and then if I can a 3rd VM (likely Linux) for Plex with the data/media on a NAS. Don’t really want to mix work/play but I use a HP N54L with XPEnology (Plex Plugin) and it is starting to struggle now.
