Well, I was having a few issues with the R310, so I brought it back to the warehouse I bought it from. Instead of changing all the fans I asked how much to move to a R510, only few $$ more so I did it..
Brought the R510 home, threw in my Freenas USB stick & the drives, setup the Idrac and poof it was all up and running. Oh and i moved over the 10Gig network card too 🙂 everything came back on line and all is working perfectly. Now if i want to add more drives I have 4 more slots available. the goal is to add 4 more 2tb drives.
Now a picture of the rack as it sits. Soon I’ll have a 3va UPS to add and maybe even another R610.
