Re: 8 Logical Processors (1x Core i7 CPU) && Free ESXi
Thanks for information, the free one did only have 1-6 cores, so i think 2 cores will not be used by vm is this correct or is this limit only for physical cores and not for logical ones.
the DX50SO works with vSphere good, only the Raid-Controller doesn't work correctly. If you configure a Raid, VM see every Harddisk and not the container.
The NICs working normaly.
At the start with vShere i was pachting the installation CD for 3Ware Support ( i use this controller for the raid level) and after the first update the patch was terminated. So i reinstall the VMWare on a USB Stick, start from that and install the 3Ware driver normaly. Thats the Patch save solution.
The Firewire Port can not be accessed via VM-Ware so i bridge it direct to a VM (Windows Server 2008 R2/Exchange 2010) for a Backup Drive and this works without problems too.
As Powersupply i take one with a very big Fan on the Ground of the Powersupply and for the CPU Fan i use Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 with very low rotaition and a passiv colling Graphic card from nvidia.
The Case is Noice Reducted silentmaxx ITA-2767.
so the PC is total Quite, nothing to hear - my gigabit switch is the louderst part in my home for now, but this is in a 19" case and i think the fan must be killed very soon
