Re: Tyan Thunder K8WE S2985 32GB RAM ESXi 4/4u1
Just want to add I got the LSI 3081E-R 8 port internal SAS controller card working with this and am passing through all 8 drives to a FreeNAS VM. Able to do full SMART reporting as well. If I had the spare change I'd try adding a 2nd one with another 8 drives to see just how many I could fit. If I had way too much extra money I'd love to try it with an external SAS expander to see if I could pass through the 244 devices the LSI cards are capable of.
