    2 x HP ML530 G2 Servers

    Finally managed to shift these monolithic beasts out of the comms room (they've been stuck in there doing nothing for two years).

    They're dual Xeon 3.0Ghz with 8GB RAM and 12 x 146GB SAS 10k HDD.

    Any takers? They're working... we booted them up yesterday to wipe the disks.

    Pick up in Croydon.

    Ta,

    Ant

    Do they support Hyper-V virtualisation?

    Looks like it might but can't be 100% sure but I'm sure they'll be of use to someone.

    Thanks.

    Fair enough. If I get a spare mo, I'll stick Hyper-V on there and see what happens!

    they look like 32bit processors and don't handle virtualization.

    @Mcshammer_dj - looks like you're right.

    HT said no bacause A) they're old [earliest mention of ML530 G2 I've found is 2004] and B) it's Croyden.

    Croyden is far. We're moving to CC4 and have to replace our current server, but these seem just as old as the one we can't use anymore.

    It's alright... the comment was meant rather tongue-in-cheek.

    I have just broken down a load of dl380 and dl360'd all g3's and to be honest we are struggling to get rid of them. Even the G4's are really not worth the hassle of trying to use them
