    • 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 was thinking that this being a newer Windows machine might be the issue as well. Even though my other machines are on W10, they started with an "older" version of W10 compared to this one. "   I guess it is the other way round: devices having been upgraded 'in place' rather than via 'clean install' do not interoperate properly with 1809's interface.   "It could very well be something to do with SMB1, …"   Most unlikely: I disabled SMB1 everywhere once the advisory came out. MSFT had long since abandoned SMB1, were removing Homegroup and upgrading to SMB 3: the new stuff, or the upgrade process thereto, is probably the cause.   "Definitely not giving up on this."   Wish you well … and have booked your appointment for head-trauma surgery … I'll probably be joining you after 1903 😉

      One more question not in direct connection to this - what is the difference in original HP ram modules - as ilo reports the original as HP smart module the 8 gb non HP does not say hp smart module - apart of the “label hp smart module” is there any additional feature?
    • JackoUK
      Good questions … here are my experiences … which I hope are still relevant.   In general don't worry about the difference between a server, workstation and a PC as regards Windows. The DELL refurbished Outlet regularly throws up bargains, if you missed the President's offer.   It is unlikely you can reparent your Windows 10 license to a new machine unless you bought/built a bare machine and purchased a retail W10 license later (you will have a separate 25-digit code). One advantage of buying a complete machine from an OEM is that the Windows license, though locked to that machine, is comparatively cheap. Upgrading later is expensive, so if you want W10 Pro then get it with the box, don't accept Home and then pay 120 to upgrade to Pro.   A new machine will have a UEFI BIOS so disks larger than 2TB are bootable. You can use any SATA disk therein regardless of size or RPM … though best use all the same type for RAID arrays. It used to be the case that an OEM RAID controller would object to 3rd party disks but many machines now use the motherboard SATA connector and INTEL software, so no worries.   Bespoke power connectors … and your plans for future upgrades are issues. Make sure you are getting all the connectors you need, even disk caddies could be missing if the purchase spec. says only 1 disk.   One point you might miss: a low-end server may not have a x16 PCI slot for graphics. The T30 is OK there. (x8 would probably be OK for a server anyways … but you might want something more later). An nVidia 1050 or thereabouts should be fine and is one card which does not require an additional power connection. Maybe lower according to PLEX requirements. A fanless design would be even better (quieter).

      I was thinking that this being a newer Windows machine might be the issue as well. Even though my other machines are on W10, they started with an "older" version of W10 compared to this one.    SMB1 has been deprecated but I went in and enabled the SMB1 service manually and even then it doesn't work. At one point, it did pop up in the network neighborhood briefly but disappeared after a few minutes. It could very well be something to do with SMB1, but it works fine on all my other machines so I feel like there must be something else at play here. I've also tried disabling SMB1 on the Drobo to force a more up to date protocol and it didn't make a difference. For now I'll just have to have one of the shares mounted by the Drobo Dashboard. That seems to have gotten me around the issue until I find a proper solution. Definitely not giving up on this.
