Today I get to start playing with my new toys. Who said that Richard Campbell is the only one who can geek out and build a rack. (But he has helped me pick out my rack and given me good advice.)
So I got three PowerEdges from Dell, one big momma database server with RAID 5 and all the works and two thin ones. They are all redundant power and the processors are hyper threaded. So this is going to be a fun task setting this all up, getting the UPS power supply to the correct amps. Installing the correct rack rails. The router. VPN/RDP. RAID. And of course I have to install Windows 2003 on each server. I think I will use the Dell Open Manage Assistant for help with that. See you soon…
