Just received brand new server
I've just un boxed our new server which is going to replace our 7~ year old and 4~ year old box.
new box: P4304BTLSHCN
- E3-1230 Xeon Quad core 3.2 Ghz
- 2x 4Gb DDR3 1333 ECC (8GB RAM)
- 3 X Seagate 1TB @ Raid 5 (Hot swop bay available)
I've not booted it up yet but I know I've got alot of work ahead of me.
since the current system is so old and just ughh badly maintained in the past I have chosen to install this server from scratch.
I asume at this point that the box has 2008 R2 pre install since no OS disk was present in the package.
What I would like to do is try to keep this new server as sperarate from the old system as much as possible so I thought would it be worth configuring it to use a slightly different network ID
current system is on 192.168.1.2 and .1.3
Should I configure the server to use 192.168.0.x ?
will this complicate thing alot more and would it require switch configurations?
Thanks, tell me what you think of the new box as well :)
