Example 1 Supermicro 2. U Build. Super. Micro X1. SL7 F which has a built in LSI2. HBA. Xeon E3 1. ECC Memory. TB HGST HDDs I use RAID Z24 2.

The LSI2. 30. 8M1. I like do to two DC S3. SLOG device and then do a RAID Z2 of spinners on the other 6 slots. Also get one preferably two for a mirror drives that you will plug into the SATA ports not on the LSI controller for the local ESXi data store. Im using DC S3. 70. I have, but this doesnt need to be fast storage, its just to put Free. NAS on. 2. Flash HBA to IT Firmware. As of Free. NAS 9. IT mode P2. 0 looks like its P2.

You can boot into an Ubuntu Live. CD and use hdparm, instructions are here https www. SSDOver provisioningusinghdparm You can also do this after after VMware is installed by passing the LSI controller to an Ubuntu VM Free. NAS doesnt have hdparm. I usually over provision down to 8. GB. Update 2. 01. But you may want to only go to 2. GB depending on your setup One of my colleagues discovered 8. GB over provisioning wasnt even maxing out 1. Gb network remember, every write to VMware is a sync so it hits the ZIL no matter what with 2 x 1. Gb fiber lagged connections between VMware and Free. NAS. This was on an HGST 8. Intel DC S3. 70. 0 and it wasnt virtualized setup. But thought Id mention it here. Install VMware ESXi 6. The free version of the hypervisor is here. I usually install it to a USB drive plugged into the motherboards internal header. Under configuration, storage, click add storage. Choose one or two of the local storage disks plugged into your SATA ports do not add a disk on your LSI controller. Create a Virtual Storage Network. For this example my VMware management IP is 1. VMware Storage Network ip is 1. Free. NAS Storage Network IP is 1. Create a virtual storage network with jumbo frames enabled. VMware, Configuration, Add Networking. Virtual MachineCreate a standard switch uncheck any physical adapters. Add Networking again, VMKernel, VMKernel Select v. Switch. 1 which you just created in the previous step, give it a network different than your main network. I use 1. 0. 5. 5. IP and 2. 55. 2. 55. Some people are having trouble with an MTU of 9. I suggest leaving the MTU at 1. MTU of 9. 00. 0. Also, if you run into networking issues look at disabling TSO offloading see comments. Under v. Switch. 1 go to Properties, select v. Install Debian 8 there. Switch, Edit, change the MTU to 9. Answer yes to the no active NICs warning. Then select the Storage Kernel port, edit, and set the MTU to 9. Configure the LSI 2. Passthrough VT d. Configuration, Advanced Settings, Configure Passthrough. Mark the LSI2. 30. You must have VT d enabled in the BIOS for this to work so if it wont let you for some reason check your BIOS settings. Reboot VMware. 7. Create the Free. NAS VM. Download the Free. NAS ISO from http www. Create a new VM, choose custom, put it on one of the drives on the SATA ports, Virtual Machine version 1. Guest OS type is Free. BSD 6. 4 bit, 1 socket and 2 cores. Try to give it at least 8. GB of memory. On Networking give it two adapters, the 1st NIC should be assigned to the VM Network, 2nd NIC to the Storage network. Set both to VMXNET3. SCSI controller should be the default, LSI Logic Parallel. Choose Edit the Virtual Machine before completion. If you have a second local drive not one that youll use for your zpool here you can add a second boot drive for a mirror. Before finishing the creation of the VM click Add, select PCI Devices, and choose the LSI 2. And be sure to go into the CDDVD drive settings and set it to boot off the Free. NAS iso. Then finish creation of the VM. Free. NAS VM Resource allocation. Also, since Free.
