I currently have Vmware ESXI 5 cluster with Dell Poweredge R710 hosts. I was told that its possible when a host goes into stand-by to have a "quick-boot" when it comes out. At this time I am waiting 7+ minutes. I have seen another cluster that boots out of stand-by in 30 seconds.
Is this a setting or part of IPMI or bios? If so how do i set this up?
Is there a way to check whether node interleaving is enabled from within Windows on a Dell R710? omreport chassis biossetup doesn't appear to print any NUMA-related settings on the server I'm looking at.
I have ordered Poweredge R710 server with 4 diskas planning to configure them as RAID10. However I only got 3 disks delivered (4th will be delivered in 10 days).
I am wondering can I create RAID10 array with one disk missing and start installing my system (aware of possible risks in case the disk dies), and then when the disk arrives I just add it to the system? Will
