RE: Dell R740XD SSD Compatibility
If you needed relatively low cost SSDs with higher capacity I might look at the Samsung Evo line or something like this which is marketed as a business drive.
Are these known to work on R740XD? This is for QA work, so I don't particularly mind if we lose things like wear levels within iDRAC...
The things you tend to "lose" when not using OEM or Brand certified drives are related to a custom driver that Dell has made. These drives should work in literally any chassis without issue.
RE: I can't even
Today's things not to do:
- Don't get all your information wrong and call your IT department's account manager in a huff.
- Don't get angry about something for no reason and try to take it out on IT who is trying to help you.
- Don't refuse to follow the decisions of the owner of the company.
- Don't claim your staff is bored and needs their time filled by just moving a mouse around.
- Don't make ridiculous demands that are so extreme they require service level adjustments and approval of the owner.
- Don't lie five times to your account manager while on a recorded line.
TL;DR Don't be a douchebag
RE: What Are You Doing Right Now
My lunch break included a 20 minute power nap and coffee. . .
That must've been nice, my lunch consisted of my eating while still working and having people walk up to me while I'm mid bite.
All 10 minutes of my lunch..
RE: ESXi 6.7 Troubleshooting
As some of you might know, I'm relatively new at Virtualization. With that being said I've just built a VM in the following environment:
- ESXi 6.7 Update 3
- Dell PowerEdge R840 with 8CPU & Xeon Gold 5122 processor
- 64-bit Windows Server 2016 w/GUI (Desktop Experience)
I'm having all kinds of issues.
Accessing network drives is working fine, but right clicking any file locks the VM up. Trying to open any files prompts me that "This app can't run on your PC" as if to say it's not 64-bit. Trying to copy said files to the desktop of the VM via RDP results in extremely long transfer times which mostly fail.
Allocations as follows:
- 2 Cores
- 30GB RAM
- 3TB HDD
I know this isn't a lot of information to go off of, as I've omitted many variables, but I honestly don't know what's even relevant.
Where would you start to troubleshoot this? I'm very close to deleting the VM and trying again in assumption that the install was bust.
Did you install the guest drivers into the VM?

Did anyone else notice the little hand-rail tapping thing he did there as he was walking up the stairs too. What was that about?
