Title: testing on a NUC ivy based intel system (one nic)
Post by: giody on February 01, 2015, 11:53:17 PM
Hi Gents,
i would have to do a test of software appliance on a kind of this nuc system :

http://www.amazon.it/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?__mk_it_IT=MŎ&url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=intel+nuc

Consider only ONE oneboard ethernet adapter, i'm guessing about the opportunity to use a second ethernet usb adapter for acting the necessary bridge.

What kind of adapter i have to looking for? what's linux kernel version the 2.0 wanos appliance use for check the usb lan stick compatibility?

Tnx in advance

Giordano

Hi Giordano,

It appears the Intel NUC is quite a popular option. Actually Beyers did develop a PBR option for One Nic appliances. We have been keeping it for Plus, but perhaps its time to set it free.

Alternatively you can run ESXi on the NUC and use a inside and outside vlan.

Kernel version 3.8.13. Most common USB adapters that are not bleeding edge should work. Biggest drawback I had with cheap USB Ethernet Adapters was that they limited throughput to 10 Mbps.

Single NIC Boot with Routed mode is now supported that could be useful in these Single NIC systems like the Intel NUC
