    • Here is something that wasn't planned but came to me while I was at Unveiled.  The Unveiled event was a little lackluster so I had a little fun with the DJI Osmo Pocket.  Take a look.

    • TP-Link's Wi-Fi 6 Routers
      I talked with TP-Link about their AX series routers.  The Deco X10 is a Tri-Band mesh router that will come in a pack of two for $350.  I was told Q3 for release but if that sounds like a long time don't forget that we don't have anything that will talk with the AX standard yet.  
      It's a good looking box that I hope will perform well and have plenty of features.  I've read good things about the Deco series and there were a few good sales last year on the M5.  I really should test the M5!

      Here it is.  Yes, it's huge! Not a hockey puck like the M5 is.  What do you think?

      I've been banging my head for a few days now trying to figure this out and I've run out of ideas. Hoping the very intelligent crew here can help me out.   I have a Drobo 5N and a Synology RS816 on my network, both of which have been working without issue for quite some time now. I've always connected to both via Windows Explorer by simply going to the network address i.e., \\N5 and \\SYN (sample names).    I recently got a new desktop which is where the issues are coming up. When I try to go to \\N5, it results in a message saying it cannot find that location. However, \\SYN works just fine. What's strange is that I can see and manage the Drobo through the Drobo Dashboard software. What could be preventing Windows from seeing the Drobo on the network?    I've already enabled the SMB 1.x protocol, ensured the workgroup names are the same, rebooted both the machine and the Drobo, made sure network sharing is enabled, and even did a fresh install to ensure that some program I installed didn't cause the issue. Every other machine I have can access the Drobo without issue. It's just this new desktop, and everything is running Windows 10.   Another strange phenomenon that I discovered is that if I go to "\\DROBO" (verbatim, not a sample name) it leads me to the Synology. Where is Windows getting the mapping from that it is directing that address to the Synology?   This is driving me nuts so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

      Do you have an OS running on the server? How much memory is available in the OS? Registered memory is not supported on the MS Gen8. The server will sometimes boot with registered memory installed, iLo can see it, but it is not available for the OS. I assume your OS will see the 4GB and the 16GB will not be available.

      Thanks Skandal,

      Do you know if there is a maximum HDD size on the P420? Or should any disk theoretically work?
    • skandal
      Yes. I bought mine at eBay, and saw other do the same without a problem.     I bought a 9207-8i, works pretty well. But If you want HW RAID you might want to look to other options. Probably a P420 is a better choice.     Don't go RAID5 for that amount of space. If a disk fails, the stress added to the other disks when rebuilding the array might kill another.

      I've got 16gb ddr3 Rdimms that the server won't accept and 4gb Udimms that I have to use.   But, if slot 0 is a Udimm, slot 1 won't even check for registration.   Currently a 4gb Udimm in slot 0 and a 16gb Rdimm in slot 1  boots normally and shows 20gb available.   Can I get some confirmation with anyone else able to test this? Is there a real technical reason why we might want to avoid this? Rdimms that don't register should act just like Udimms as far as my reading leads me.    Will a xeon upgrade let me use 2 of my Rdimms for 32gb? Apparently the inability to accept dimm registration is tied to the pentium chip, but without a swap handy to test, I don't know if the BIOS blocks Rdimm as well.
