May I ask why not WSS2008? I've been looking into using it for iSCSI for my Hyper-V server (Once I get a replacement mobo for my PE 1950)
Personally, I use .33 at home, but that's because I have a /27 subnet.
You know you are a network guy or gal when your home network is subnetted out instead of a standard /24. I use /27s for my home vlans too. I'm redoing my network so ill post my diagram and pics of my rack
You can still use a /24 at home and be a network guy. Using a /27 just shows more creativity..
Such a long post and no pictures?
I've gone from "shit, I don't have enough space in my electrical service panel to add a 50 Amp twist lock in my house" to "cool, this 12U rack fits under my desk" =)
I am probably somewhere between 13 and 14. Trying to consolidate into an absolutely minimal network that suites all my needs and has at most two servers cus as it turns out, power isn't cheap.
Think i might start a *Whats your rack / server watts Consumption* thread
/usr/home said:Yeah, I'm on 13 as well. eBay is so bloody damn addictive. I always need a "new" "toy" or something to test and play with.
good idea, I jsut bought a kill-a-watt on ebay after reading that!
oh yea... i was gonna buy less electronic stuff on Ebay...
oh well, I'll measure power consumption when it gets here and post up
