In the interest of reliability and compatibility, we opted to only support enterprise level SSDs. We actually only recently supported non-Dell drives because of those same reasons. We started talking with Edge and found a partner who would co-developer firmware to limit the risk to our customers. If Dell makes a firmware change, we didn't want our customers to experience any issues with their drives.
That what made me reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally nervous about non-DELL drives.
Not that anything would happen, but the last thing you need is some change form DELL and then your drives stop working, or booting.
Total BS that they do that, but whatever. It's their company and there are other options.
Migrated the VMs off of this box so that I could work on it without affecting anyone else. Came in yesterday to work on it. Powered it down and installed the NIC daughter board without removing power to the system. Miraculously, it's now working as expected. 😕 👍
