Doing my first community build. I am putting together three older R610 Gen II Dual Processor servers that I bought off of ebay for a pretty good price. No drives, so I ordered a single 500GB 2.5" SAS drive for each, and a single 200GB SSD 2.5" drive for each for hot tier purposes. I also picked up 32GB USB 3 flash drives for the boot/image purposes (At least initially, not sure if I can add a pci-e usb 3.1 card to speed this up, or if I am fine with just the usb dumb down). Just waiting on the 200GB SSD's to arrive today. I have a netgear gigabit 8 port switch, usb drives imaged; reading up on the forums here about using the Perc 6/i to see what caveat's that entails. Thanks to jrack for the help!

  1. Getting ideas and preparing for the next Nutanix User Group session in Singapore.

I'm currently preparing for NCP exam. Apart from the online courses any tips on how to learn Nutanix and its features effectively? Thanks!
