Hello there! I've hinted toward this project in various forum posts, but I'll cut to the chase. I'm currently in the final phase(s) of a long-awaited server build project. I began the original planning for it back in 2017/2018, but never got to actually acquire any parts until 2019/2020. Due to the massive gap in time, I had to change things up a bit, due to market forces and parts availability. The server is meant to replace (and extend) my current workstation - a Dell Precision T7500. This is what I've ended up with as of summer 2020:

CSE :: HPE ProLiant DL580 G7
CPU :: 4x Intel Xeon E7-8870's (10c/20t each; 40c/80t total)
RAM :: 64GB (16x4GB) DDR3-1333 PC3-10600R ECC
STR :: 1x HP 518216-002 146GB HDD (ESXi, VMware Linux Appliance, System ISOs) +
1x Western Digital WD Blue 3D NAND 500GB SATA SSD (vSphere Flash Read Cache) +​
4x HP 507127-B21 300GB HDDs +​
1x 500GB Seagate Video ST500VT003 HDD (Remote Development VM)​
1x LSI SAS 9201-16e HBA SAS card (4-HDD DAS) +​
1x Mini-SAS SFF-8088 to SATA Forward Breakout x4 cable +​
4x HITACHI HUA722020ALA330 HDDs +​
1x Rosewill RASA-11001 (4x 3.5in HDD cage)​
PCIe :: 1x HP 512843-001/591196-001 System I/O board +
1x HP 588137-B21; 591205-001/591204-001 PCIe Riser board​
GPU :: 1x nVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB +
1x nVIDIA Tesla K10​
SFX :: 1x Creative Sound Blaster Audigy Rx
NIC :: 1x SolarFlare SFN5322F +
1x HP 491838-001 (NC375i)​
FAN :: 4x Arctic F9 PWM 92mm case fans **
PSU :: 4x 1200W Server PSU's (HP 441830-001/438203-001)
PRP :: 1x Dell MS819 Wired Mouse *

Parts marked with * have not been purchased/sourced yet. Those marked with ** are already in-house, but require further planning/modification before they can be added to the server.

As of now, the fans aren't really required for functionality. They were meant to help quiet the server down a bit, but they require some modification to work. This part can wait.


Here is the current software configuration plan for the server:

* Temporary task that will be replaced by a permanent, self-hosted solution
** Can benefit from port forwarding, but will be primarily tunnel-bound
^ Tunnel-bound (VPN/SSH) role - not port forwarded/exposed to the Internet
+ Active Directory enabled - Single Sign On (SSO)



If you want more details about the project posted here, please let me know.


There are four other mirrors for this project, all of which get updated when new developments get made:

Replaced the Rosewill RASA-11001 with a Kingwin MKS-435TL, due to the fact that it doesn't need molex and will also have a cleaner look to it. Forgot how to edit posts here, sorry if I could have added the info to the OP above. Also planning out a long-term Tesla K80 upgrade...

Grabbed the wired mouse. Now back to the waiting game, to see when everything will arrive in the mail...

Virtual Flash looks like fun. I might actually look into it more when the time comes...

Thank goodness it only needs one of the PSUsat a time! Otherwise, I'd be toast XD

So, here's the current plan:
  • Have ESXi run 24/7, in a low-power/on-demand state
  • Have Windows Server 2016 (VPN+AD) setup for 24/7 low-power operation as well
  • Have Artix Linux (Nextcloud) setup for 24/7 low-power operation too
  • Have MacOS setup for Hybrid Sleep after 20 minutes' inactivity and setup for Wake-on-LAN
  • Have Windows 10 setup for ^^^ as well, since it's not running anything mission critical
  • Don't power down ESXi unless I want to lose access to over half my infrastructure :3

Have you got spare server RAM you can change it out with to test @TopHatProductions115 ??
Crisis averted. From the looks of it, the issue was caused by me running a slightly older version of ESXi 6.5 (U2). VMware's servers have been a bit unreliable for downloads recently, so I had to dig for a copy of ESXi 6.5 U3 on the internet. Now troubleshooting the next issue:

Also have to look into this at some point (even though the server will be mostly hiding behind a VPN):

I'm getting ready to reinstall ESXi 6.5 U3, since HPE's Smart Array assumed I was gonna 'RAID all da things' and lose over half my storage to sub-optimally configured RAID arrays that it made (one of which was in perpetual recovery and included an unsupported SSD). Had to manually configure each drive as a logical volume with RAID 0 fault tolerance, treating each drive as its own virtual array of one disk. I ended up RAIDing all the things anyway, by that logic.

While I'm waiting on comments for the previous issue, and a few ISOs to upload to my server, I can start working on investigating this:
Gotta search for the patches through this page, by entering the details mentioned in the last 3 kb pages:


On a side note, also ran into this when setting up my first VM:
Reserve Memory beforehand, I guess

Benchmark Scores Nothing worth noting yet...
Someone has been having fun!! Gotta love trouble shooting don't you?? :( I hope it all settles out soon for you!!
Yeah. Still privately working out how to get my HBA working in ESXi as well, before I send that issue to VMware's forums as well XD

It's been hectic...

Sometimes I do ask myself the question about all that I do at home, for home and I say, is it all worth the hassle sometimes :laugh:

I hope you get it sorted out mate and can report back all of the great work you've been doing, oh and don't forget a load of pictures!! :D
