    Re: HP ProLiant.

    Have you been in touch with Steam support? They're not always quick to reply but they should be able to remove you from the beta, at least I'd think so. Maybe now they'll consider adding a 'disable beta' option on your account page on the website or something?

    I can try, i guess.

    It's pretty bad they don't have an opt-out section on the website though. Saying that, they've only just integrated the forums with your actual Steam account and made them accessible through the client.

    Re: HP ProLiant.

    I had a really strange problem a while back, not being able to log into the community site outside of the client. I got in touch with support a few times as apparently there's a rare corruption issue which can cause it, which turned out not to be the case, but the issue remained. Later, I was advised to do what I suggested above and strangely it worked!? I thought I'd tried that before so I'm not sure if they changed something on their end.

    Re: HP ProLiant.

    Sorry, I've only just seen this thread. I have an HP Microserver with all my Steam content on it. I've mounted it as iSCSI though under c:\iscsi, so it appears to the OS and all programs as part of the local disk. I've never had any problems with it at all. Might be worth a go?

    Do you need 7 ultimate to do this?

    ^ how to set up iSCSI target on FreeNAS. You basically assign a bit of your RAIDZ (or whatever) pool as an iSCSI target - it looks to all intents and purposes like a LUN - ie you can't see the contents from FreeNAS, only the iSCSI initiator.

    Then you set up the iSCSI initiator in Windows, and it effectivly then sees it as local disk. iSCSI is pretty awesome, if the SAN goes away the initiator queues requests until it appears again.

    My Windows install is actually the Bootcamp partition of my iMac. Although it's not quite the speed of the local disk, it's pretty close. I run RAID-Z2 across 5x2TB drives.

    Re: HP ProLiant.

    How to use the Windows iSCSI initiator:

    I personally use Win 7 ultimate as that's what I have in my MS Action Pack, so I don't know if it comes with all versions.

    So can a particular part of your nas storage be both SMB/CIFS and iSCSI or do you have to pick one or the other?

    I pull 80–100MB ps anyway so it's not hugely important but I like to play :-D

    Re: HP ProLiant.

    Yeah. I've configured a RAID-Z2 pool of all the drives.

    Within that I have a few NFS shares, a few SMB shares, and an iSCSI target. The only difference really is that NFS/SMB/CIFS are all NAS - that is you can inspect the contents of the share from the FreeNAS itself, and locking is handled by FreeNAS.

    iSCSI is SAN which basically means that the FreeNAS sees it as a huge BLOB file and can't see inside. If you want to connect multiple servers to the iSCSI target at the same time, you need to sort your own locking, so some sort of clustered file system needs implementing on top.

    As an aside there's no reason you couldn't create an iSCSI target for OSX and tell it that's a Time Machine drive and OSX would happily back up over the network. The only reason I've not done that yet is that the OSX iSCSI initiator isn't free any more and I'm tight!

    Re: HP ProLiant.

    Depending on what software you use, will decide how you can carve up your space.

    Some software will only let you split by drive (or partition) due to block level iSCSI, others will let do file-level iSCSI where you can just create iSCSI targets as growing files (a la virtual disks).

    Solaris will even let you use SSDs as write-caching drives.

    Re: HP ProLiant.

    So does FreeBSD. I would avoid Solaris like the plague unless you have a very specific use case. FreeBSD's ZFS implementation is pretty much identical to Solaris's and it's WAY less fussy about hardware.

    Does anybody know how to configure it so it will show up on the PS3? That was *the* major reason for me going for a NAS so we could stream stuff downstairs but it isn't showing up

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    I think you'd need a uPnP server for that - I've not set one up myself but I think it's included in FreeNAS.

    One guide i was looking at, for an older version, says the option is there but i've double-checked the services page and there's nothing there (version 8).
