  1. good mobo and cpu for home server?

    If its for business files, then id just go for a robust Synology NAS with a few 6TB disks in there. By the time you buy all the other parts, you could have bought one of these: https://www.amazon.com/Synology-DS1817-8GB-Station-Diskless/dp/B06Y4TJL54/ Also why NVMe and Optane? Optane doesnt accelerate arrays - and NVMe is a waste in a home storage server.....
  2. Am I overthinking something?

    You could setup a Linux server and create a secure SOCKS5 proxy RDP tunnel and just mount your drives remotely via the RDP protocol to the server? The way mine used to be configured is Server Hardware > Windows Server 2012 R2 > Hyper-V with Linux VM with port 22 open to internet. SSH to the Linux VM, then open RDP tunnel over SSH to the Windows server and control that as a daily driver.
  3. Need Server guide, Estimation

    Hardware is really a fairly simple area once you get a few customers and can determine what your loads are and future requirements. You can get really affordable ex-lease enterprise servers for a few hundred dollars these days such as the Dell PowerEdge R710 and the HP ProLiant DL380 G7 The bigger issue is once you start considering -IP Address management -Storage & Backup solutions -Networking (routing/switching/vlan) -Firewall, Antivirus and other Security mitigations -Active network monitoring -Resource management (cPanel, etc...) -Billing systems
  4. Certificate CA help

    You can use a GPO to deploy the certificate. You could even link the machine/user certs to security groups for greater security control over who gets it deployed.

  6. Best hypervisor, plus why you prefer it.

    VMware - because the functionality and scalability from a single ESXi host, up to a Datacenter providing IaaS services is astounding and their vendor support is second to none. Extremely good storage support, and backup supports with the likes of Veem and NetBackup. Their vCenter appliance is extremely easy to rolll out and fantastic automation and management like vRealize Orchestrator and vCloud Management Suite
  7. How would I set up a game server

    SteamCMD is used for deploying a large variety of steam servers incl CS, TF2, L4D, 7 Days to Die, Rust, Arma, etc... Generally you install a Linux OS (e.g Ubuntu) and then use SteamCMD to download the game server files by appID. Most steam servers will launch with a shell script (.sh) - some come with a default example script - or you just create your own to launch the server with your .cfg file or parameters. For games like 7DtD, RoK, Rust, etc...you can look at modding communities like http://oxidemod.org for community maintained install & management scripts. Resource is dependent on the game and its mods. A $50 second hand PC might easily support a 24 player CS:GO server, but might struggle with a Minecraft server with 50+ mods and 20 players. Most game server documents have recommended minimum specs
  8. Shrink my server setup, *advice needed*

You can always add an expansion card later on for the SAS if needed.
  9. Gaming server - Suggestions needed!

    If you're still looking and really want to have your own server - then just get a Dell PowerEdge R730 with some E5 processors, decent amount of ram and some 1TB SAS drives - then just get an addditional few SSD's for installing the server and game servers too. Its cheaper, you'll have a standard rackmount for a host to install, and most hosts will give you a management port as well.
  10. Ambitious NAS on a shoe-string budget

    Depends how much you value the data. If its media, when I had some individual drives, I used to create a folder list export every month so in the event of a drive failure, I could just refer tot he list on what I had lost so I could decide on what to redownload. Easily done by creating a batch or powershell script and scheduling it with Task Scheduler. If you're looking to move up to 12 drives, youre going to want RAID6 (a 2 disk parity). If you're looking to use it as a Media Player as well, i'd recommend just using Windows with Storage Spaces to create the volume. I wouldn't recommend RAID5 with a high number of second hand drives. High port count boards are often expensive. You're generally best just to get a HBA later (wether thats a cheap SATA card, or a half decent SAS HBA) For expansion you could be better to buy larger capacity disks and upgrade one at a time. It's much easier to manage 6 disks than 12. I used to have mine in a Silverstone Lascala LC17B which can hold up to 8 drives. Great looking case if you want something that fits in your entertainment center with some asthetics. There are half a dozen other similar Silverstone HTPC cases. If you want 4K playback you'll need a Kaby Lake processor or at least a GTX960/GTX1030 would be preferable. It's quite common to make a HTPC/NAS hybrid build. You could build it second hand, but might find it hard to find parts for 4K playback.

  11. Help Me please !!

    Have you tried different memory? some boards can be a bit iffy with 2Rx4 modules, it might want 2Rx8 modules (16 chip memory modules)

  13. Game server Change IP location

    You cannot fake where your IP comes from, the IP location generally comes from an IP Location database. If you're talking about steam servers, in particular valve hlds/srcds servers - theres a server.cfg variable for changing your region. I don't know if that has been deprecated though.
  14. ThreadRipper for application servers?

    Thats what Intels Workstation (silver) equivalant Xeons are for
  15. nvme u.2 storage server

    It's not very crazy at all in the enterprise space. Servers like this are perfect for providing services like AWS cloud databases. Though this is where those enterprise Optane drives come in, being able to accelerate spindle arrays with extremely low queue depths for a fraction of the cost.
