Official LAN tastic Super Server

Postby Rope on Wed Jun 13, 2007 3:51 pm

Well one of my clients just GAVE me their old server since I shoved a full rack of new stuff in there for them. I will get it cleaned up, but as far as installing the games/bianries..
That's all you. This post is the official announcement that you admin types need to bring your media with you to install this stuff.

Dell Poweredge 2600
Server is running SBS2000
Dual Xeon 1.6's
2 Gigs RAM
100+ Gig RAID-5, 10k RPM SCSI
2 NICS

Hopefully this thing will serve it up proper for us. If not, I'll try to find something else. Let me know if this will get it done.

Have to clean it up first Buzz. The deal with me getting it for free was that I'd kill all their corporate data. It has SBS2000 installed so we're going to roll with that. RRAS and DHCP are already configured so it can act as the DHCP server and internet gateway. Gorgeous..

Specs: Dell Poweredge 2600, Redundant PSU's, Adaptec 29160 SCSI Card, Dual 1.8 XEONS, 2 Gigs of RAM, HP LTO-3 Ultrium Tape Drive, and 4 x36 Gig Cheetah 15K Ultra3 Drives in RAID 5.

That ought to do it for us <grin>

I'll get it on the edge for you to RDP into it sometime next week if that's cool.

Server 2003 R2 installed and kicking already.

Who's bringing switches this year? I have one 24 port I can snag.

Lesson's learned ... If you have a SWITCH (not a hub), bring it and let the admins know. Personally - I won't bring those piece of shit 24 port cabletron switches that always crap out on us. I will, however, try to snag some real Cisco's from work.

If anyone can snag a 100 Base with SFP or Gig Uplinks that would rock. I don;t need gig to the desktops per say, but we need the trunks to be fatter than 100Mbit for all of the "cooperative file sharing" that always goes on 8)

I've also got tons of Fibre cable... In many flavors... SC, MTRJ, LC

And I'm working on trying to snag a couple of 24 port Baystacks with cascade and Gig Uplink. Don't hold me to it yet.
