    Sad Day - 980 Days

    Sad day for me today, I have to turn off one of my NAS boxes that's been up for 980 days. We have a new mains connection happening in the morning so I am in turning stuff off just to be on the safe side as the switch over will be at least 3 hours or so....
    I so wanted to get it to 1000 days too.

    On a similar kind of note, can FreeNAS support redundant PSU's?

    I would imagine if you install it on a machine that has the capability for a redundant psu that the BIOS will handle the change over, not the O/S installed upon it?

    Why not? After all the good book states, and I quote "Between the hours of 8 and 5, Monday until Thursday thou shall grovel like a dog and like a chicken with no head, run around. But on a Friday, the Sabbath day, thou shall do as you please as it is the day of fish and chips, ale, and relaxation."

    Ah, of course.

    Same here. Even DOS could 'support' redundant PSU's since its independant of the OS

    That's correct sidewinder, it's all handled as part of the BIOS, newer machines can interface with it just as they can with a UPS.

    Thanks for the rep Matt, I love it when my little green bar thing gets bigger!

    Depends on the base operating system and bios its running. I believe the current default is Net-BSD which is apparently meant to change to Debian in the future (so i've been told).

    Can you not just connect a bunch of UPSs in series?
