    Got my new server...

    Sooo - got my new server. Yay!!
    I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him and call him....Jupiter
    I have kept my old server which is too difficult to rename so it is still 'server'. I will tell them that it is the name of a very small and obscure moon of Jupiter.

    (a teacher noticed the new one appearing on her screen and said...."What's that Juniper thing then?" *sigh*)

    Had to switch him off over the half term due to electrical work so I will be in at 7.30am on Monday (as always) to switch him on again. Hopefully all will be well.
    Just wanted to share - apart from mrwITch, no one here would understand why I would be so excited about such a thing...philistines!!

    Well, I'm at home so I dont have any pictures but he is this:

    HP ML350 Future Proofed Server - Xeon E5620 2.4 Ghz Quad Core
    Processor, 12GB Ram, HP Smart Array P410/256 MB, 5 x 500GB
    SAS 7.2k SFF Hard Drives

    Not very exciting to those of you who work in big schools with fancy servers, but for this small junior school, it is pretty good. And as I have kept my old server in the system I am on my way to the 12 servers and 6 or 7 virtual servers that I would like - empire building or what!!!

    That's obvious isn't it? I'd guess world domination.

    Don't worry Witch, you are not alone, when my 24Tb NAS arrived last year there was photographic evidence of me stroking/hugging/looking dreamily at it

    Sounds lovely! Mine's an HP 350 g6, new last year. I was slightly perturbed the first time it started, it sounded like a jet engine starting up!

    Was it easy or traumatic to set up?

    I cheated and got someone in to do most of it. I might have had a go but I think, watching him, that I would have missed a lot out and would have been in a state of panic. The main reason though, was time - being part-time it just wasnt feasible to do it myself

    The fan doesnt kick in straight away but when it does, it has quite a high note, whereas my older one starts up immediately in a lower register - together they are quite something!

    I have a ML350 as a file server , bought it new last year at a pretty good price . Good server choice
    Reason i bought it was because the school didnt have any racks ! so all servers were tower based . I then built up a 45U cabinet , and converted them all to rack . 6 servers now , and soon to be 4 virtual servers ! ( once my monster of a virtual server comes )
