New home server ordered

August 26, 2006

Finally a replacement for my Qube has been ordered. Based around this bare bones system with 2G of RAM and a pair of 300G disks.

Since one of the Qubes successfully lost all of it’s data due to ext2 file system mayhem this week, thankfully I have backups, I can’t wait to get to be using better filesystems and mirroring software. That Qube is now not even booting so rather than mess with the recovery CD time to move into the 21st century.

The goals for the system are to:

  1. Provide Email Service

  2. Act as a Windows File server

  3. DHCP server

  4. DNS server

  5. Small Web service

  6. Single user Sun Ray server

Moving email and data over will be quick as I am naturally nervous about the data on the Qube. The other services will be staged more slowly.

  1. Looks neat. What CPU will you be putting in? Are you going for dual-core?

  2. I’m not going multi core though the upgrade possiblity is there. So I will have an AMD Athlon64 3500 CPU and see how that hangs together.
