New Server Incoming
The server is gorgeous…. a 2U, dual hyperthreaded 64 bit system with 6 gigabytes of RAM and tons of 15k SCSI drives. The system also has a management console thingy that is basically a built in KVM over IP, which means I don’t need to be scared about the system booting slowly and wonder if it’s just doing a disk check or is hung, which’ll take a load off my mind. Also of course everything is redundant and hot-swappable.
So the next couple of weeks will be testing, configuring, playing with different filesystems and EVMS and various other bits. We’re looking at a February install sometime, which will be interesting.
