  1. Hey everyone. About a year ago I found an HP ProLiant ML350 G6 server in my neighborhood that someone was literally just giving away. $0 later I have it in my garage. That was a year ago, back when I had extra space for it. But now I am in an apartment with much less space. Currently it is my living room unplugged "serving" as an end table with a lamp on it -.- The specs are: intel xeon E5xxx (I don't actually remember the exact model) 16GB DDR3 ECC memory windows 10pro x64 one 750Watt removable power supply somewhere in the neighborhood of 2.5 TB of server grade HDDs that I spent money out of pocket for. The machine does have a raid controller and 8 drive bay, but I don't think it works because it wont read any drives in it. I'm pretty sure this is why previous owner abandoned it. I've tried making it into a NAS, but it went largely unused. I've tried making it into a work computer but it was the least bit practical I haven't tried gaming on it, but I would need a secondary PSU just for the graphics card because the stock PSU doesn't have a 6 pin header. I would need to make an adapter cable that utilized the unused drive bay power for the graphics card. I don't need a webserver, or a game streaming computer. I don't edit videos I don't deal with encrypted data and I have no need to serve more than just my 2 gaming rigs. It weighs a whole lot so it would cost too much to ship it if I were to sell it on ebay. Also it sounds like a jet engine and takes about 15 minutes for it to finally load windows. So tell me. What should I do with this thing? It's a relatively strong platform, but with little upgrade room. It's practically spotless inside and out. Let me know what you think. Does this thing have any use?
  2. if you do, would you mind sending me all the partitions besides the file partition? Or rather the whole operating system. We have one and managed to completely f*ck up the operating system and now this damn thing won't do anything but spin its fans. (the Operating system should be the first ~4gb on all 4 disks, or rather every partition besides the Raid File partition) I googled for literally ages and found nothing. Buffalos support team wont help either. thanks so much! expect some cookies as a reward mate! Some pics of the damn thing
  3. Okai, so I wanted/need to set up a server. I have done it before on the very same computer, it's a old computer that I don't relay use anymore. but since I hosted a CS:GO server on it the last time I have moved and had to set it all up again. the scenario is still the same tough, I had to portforward between to routers, no issue there done it before and did it again when I use a portforward checker that I downloaded I finely got it working after some tinkering. This time I decided to use the GUI based server setup thing, seems to be working just fine. I start up the server, it tells me my public ip is 31.204.73.114 so to connect to my server the address should be 31.204.73.114:27015 27015 are the port that I am using. how ever, it only shows in LAN on my community server browser with the static IP that I gave me server pc. I'm relay frustrated as I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. It should work now as it did before, but it clearly does not. also when I have your guys attention, I was thinking on buying a new procecor for the server pc. the spec currently are: athlon x2 250 @ 3.1GHz, I could't get more than 0.1 more out of it on that motherboard. 16GB ram, and very unnecessarily I know, but two 500gb HDDs, how ever, when I test play on the server it sometimes "lag's" slightly, and that is the times when the processor usage peaks above 80 % witch tells me I might need a slightly better CPU, would a Athlon quad core at 3.7 GHz be sufficient? I relay want to get the server up and running as fast as possible as I need it to the Telenor E-sport qualifier early next moth hope to get some help and I will try to provide more information upon request regarding the server issue. best regards - Pål-Marius.

  4. server

    Hi all, I recently managed to acquire a couple old 1U servers for free. I'm not 100% sure what I'm going to do with them yet but they are loud! Any ideas on ways to make them run quieter? I'm not against modifying cases and they do not have to fit in a 1U area but i do want to rack mount them at some point. Side note, anyone know where I can get a cheap server rack in the Philadelphia area?
  5. Hi there, I am setting up a fun little project. My partner and I own literally 1,000 movies and I had this idea of building a plex server. These are the parts I've come up with...What are your thoughts? Chassis: Rosewill 4U (RSV-L4412) Motherboard: EVGA Z170 FTW (140-SS-E177-KR) CPU: i7 7700K or i7 6700K (BX80677I77700K, BX80662I76700K) CPU Cooler: Noctua L-Type or a liquid cooler (NH-L9x65) PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 550 G2 80+ Gold 550W (220-62-0550-Y1) SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (MZ-7PD256) HDD: WD Red 4TB x4 (WD40EFRX) RAID: Adaptect 6805E (2270900-R) RAM: Ballistix Elite 8GB DDR4 3000 (BLE2K4G4D30AEEA) Blu Ray drives: Pioneer Slim External (BDR-XD05B) Chassis Pros: 12 hot-swap bays, 4U provides space for 120mm intake fans, vertical space for more CPU cooling options. Cons: Hot-swap bays don't provide hard drive status via LED lights, AIO requires 6 molex for power. Do you know of a better chassis with 8-12 hot-swap bays that also have room for 120mm intake fans as well as HDD status via LED lights? What would you recommend? Motherboard Pros: Price drop saved me $45, supports 7th gen and 6th gen Intel processors, on board video (instead of purchasing a server MB and then needing to buy a GPU) Cons: No USB 2.0 header (I will purchase a USB 2.0 to USB 3.0 header so I can use the chassis front two USB 2.0 ports) I don't think a server MB and ECC RAM are needed for this simple project. CPU Pros: Overclocking, can support multiple 1080p streams at the same time. (Overclock will be minimal and just for fun. I was able to push my i5 3570K to 4.2Ghz @1.25v max temp 59c) Cons: Cost (Pretty expensive but my partner wants to buy it for my birthday) CPU Cooler Liquid cooler: This cooler will allow me to keep temperatures lower than an air cooler, however I'm not sure I would be able to fit a 120mm radiator on one of the intake fans. Air cooler: Lower cost than liquid cooler and guaranteed to fit in the chassis. Can I fit a 120mm liquid cooler in this? Idk, but I hope so! If not I can easily swap to the air cooler. PSU Just personal preference for brand, 550w should be plenty for a Plex server. SSD I'll use my SSD that I pulled from my desktop to use for the OS. HDD Should work just fine for storing my movie files. RAID The RAID card I selected will be used for RAID 10, however I'm still unsure if this would be the right way to go. I plan on expanding and using all 12 HDD slots. Maybe a RAID 5 or 6 card would be better? RAM Not really caring which RAM goes in this system so I just picked one. Do I really need to go about and get a server MB and ECC ram? I don't think so... Blu Ray Drives I currently use an internal blu ray drive in my desktop to rip my movies. Two external blu ray drives should be perfect for ripping two movies at the same time. I think this project is going to be fun and challenging. Any comments or suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
  6. Post your server-setups!
  7. So yeserday my rake arived (neded it for the pach pannel and server) but i realist i need a 4 U server case for my server witch schode have hotswap . Thx -Harald
  8. I plan on buying an Intel S2600G motherboard, and building my own server. I'm quite familiar with the process of building a PC, however servers seem to be more different that I first thought. 1. After quite a bit of googleing I've found a "DELL POWEREDGE 2950 POWER SUPPLY PSU 750W" that will be compatible with the motherboard. However the motherboard also has 2 x 4 pin power sockets (one for each CPU) will I also need to connect them to the PSU? If so how, since the power supply doesn't have a connecter for that? 2. I have been used to simply looking for an ATX (or which ever size motherboard I have) and finding a case compatible with that. However after spending a good hour searching I failed to find a compatible case, mostly due to the 2 power supplies not been compatible with it. Can anyone recommend a good 1U or 2U case for that. Preferably a UK based store, or ships to the UK, and as cheap as possible. Thanks for any help,
  9. So, I'm looking to set up a comprehensive home server on the cheap, we're talking starving student budget. What we are looking at is limited at best, a 4 Down 1 Up ADSL Internet connection. Yeah, I know. And the only available computer at my disposal is Raspberry Pi 3 + 16GB SD Card & 1TB Usb HDD. Now what I'm looking to do with this pile of dreggs is: Email Hosting Web Hosting NAS Functionality Media Streaming Print Server Now that we have a shopping list, what do I need to know and study to achieve this? And any tips from seasoned vets to the server markets. Cheers!
  10. Good Day Everyone! I just recently got back into computer modding, after a long stint of using Mac's and well... Not modding. I ran across the LTT Youtube channel several months ago, and have to say it has brought me back into the game, so I figured what would be better than to share my new idea and hopefully build with the LTT community. I am the father of three quickly growing kids, and a dynamic shift has started in my household, I have gone from the primary consumer of tech, to the secondary consumer, behind the three kids. Our demand for media, access, and gaming, is growing at an alarming rate. My mac book windows machine and xbox, is quickly becoming underwhelming. As a solution to the ever growing need for tech in my home, the media wall was conceived. The Plan: Wall mount a PC that will act as a NAS/Media Server for the whole home. I have a man cave/ office that will house the machine, and because of that I wanted to make it a piece of art that could hang on the wall as much as an useful piece of equipment. I would love any feed back that you might have as this is simply in the planning stages of its life. The build will consist of 2 Thermaltake Core P5's that for lack of a better term will be smooshed together to create what appears to be one large wall mounted unit (See crappy renders attached to this post). The tripple rad is overkill, however I think it will make for a great conversation pieces, and is for aesthetics only. I plan on running several HDD's in some sort of Raid setup with a single SSD OS drive. Hope to find a decent but not overly powerful GPU, again just for aesthetics. I will keep this updated as I make progress. Any input you might have at all would be amazing!
  11. I am developing a game with java and I want online have multiplayer but I am not very experienced in communication over the internet. I wanted to know how to receive data from a server without the player port forwarding there home router. please help!
  12. Hi. I was planning to build an implementation of Linus's computer systems, the 1 tower 2 person and the 8 people 1 cpu video. So I want my computer to be somewhere else in the house and connected to a monitor, being used in the living room, and the second virtualized desktop connected to a thin client in my room with wireless HDMI dongle that Linus showed off in his video. However I have no idea how to set this up, except for the part where I create a virtualized pc with Unraid. The problem is getting the virtualized windows to the thin client in my room connected to a monitor. How would you do this? Would you use Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol? or something else in the unraid server system? Please help!
  13. I would need a PC in a case that can handle multiple VMs 10+ with capabilities for running all the VM's at once none stop. (ATX or EATX?) budget is 2500 to 3000 going to be running multiple versions of windows\Linux\Mac Going to be hosting Games - Players very from 10 - 100 (some VMS would host more than others) Thanks guys
  14. So basically I'm hoping to get a new server with a xeon e5-1650 v4 and it will serve as a file server that can be accessed over the internet and also i'm gonna game on it. That being said, it would have a samsung 960 Evo(edit) m.2 drive as the boot drive and 5 toshiba p300 3tb 7200rpm drives in raid 6, 64gb ram and hopefully (but not necessarily) an additional 3tb hdd to store my games. So, i browsed a whole selection of motherboards, but all have bad reviews either regarding compatibility with xeons or raid 6. So, if anyone has hdd's in raid 6 paired with a xeon e5, could you please recommend me a board that fits my requirements. Also, i don't have a spare haswell-e processor to upgrade my bios so i need a mobo that can post straight from a usb without a cpu installed. THANKS!! All help appreciated!!
  15. Im looking to make a server type thing for my house. Is their a type of raid that will take say 4, 1Tb drives that are in raid zero and copy the data to a 4Tb drive. Or should i just right a batch file that will back up my data ever night.
  16. LTT Storage Rankings Topic Welcome to the LTT Storage Rankings! The purpose of this topic is to show off cool storage builds, to inspire with what you show and be inspired by what you see. And of course, also talk about those builds, ask their owners questions and all that good stuff. Criteria System capacity of 10 TB or more 5 storage drives or more: We don't count OS drives, we also do not count cache drives, nor external USB drives. External SAS enclosures connected via SFF-8088 count, however. Drobos, Thunderbolt enclosures etc.: If they have a management interface which makes them somewhat autonomous, they count. It does not matter whether your storage drives is an SSD or an HDD, as long as it is used for storage. Don't forget to indicate vendor and drive size for all your drives for our statistics (see also below). For cases not covered here, we reserve the right to adjust the rules as needed to protect the spirit of the thread. It has to be a single system (everything running off of a single motherboard). Do not post your company server (except the ones from Linus Media Group ;)), this is for private systems. Pictures of the hardware required. That's the primary point of this thread, after all. Use looney's post as a template. Write a nice post about your system, give us some details on the nitty gritty inner workings of your beast. Make sure to give all the needed info for the statistics (Operating system, storage system, HDD vendors and sizes etc.) Ranking System The rankings are based on ranking points, which are calculated as follows: ranking_points = system_capacity ⨯ ln(system_drive_count) with ln(system_drive_count) being the natural logarithm of the number of drives in the system. Rationales Minimum Requirements Having both the 10 TB and the 5 drive minimum rules allows us to prevent being spammed by systems with a single or two huge HDDs (10 terabyte HDDs are a reality now, after all), while still allowing systems which were put together with smaller drives (or SSDs) to get into the list. Ranking Points Basically, this thread is about awesome storage systems, and we think that capacity isn't the only thing which determines how cool a storage machine is. Chances are that a system with a bit less capacity but quite a few more drives might be more interesting to look at. Therefore, the number of drives also counts. However, we don't want somebody buying a ton of small cheap drives to outrank somebody who's bought a hugely expensive system with fewer big drives, which is why towards the upper end of the scale, the number of drives starts to no longer matter as much (see examples below). Example for Large Systems System 1: 100 TB capacity, 50 ⨯ 2 TB drives: 391.2 ranking points System 2: 150 TB capacity, 30 ⨯ 5 TB drives: 510.2 ranking points Amount of drives required for system 1 to surpass system 2, assuming capacities for both systems and drive count for system 2 stay the same: 165 drives, resulting in 510.6 ranking points. Capacity weighs much heavier than drive count as it grows, the influence of the number of drives on the ranking points falls prey to the law of diminishing returns. Example for Smaller Systems System 3: 14 TB capacity, 7 ⨯ 2 TB drives: 27.2 ranking points System 4: 15 TB capacity, 5 ⨯ 3 TB drives: 24.1 ranking points Drive count has a higher weight for such systems, system 3 ranks ahead of system 4 despite having less total capacity. Identical Ranking Points For systems with identical ranking points, post date is the ranking factor (more specifically: post number). Since no posts can have the same number, this is sufficient for unambiguous ranking. Script The rankings and plots are generated by a Python script, which can be found on alpenwasser's github here. Capacity Calculation We count raw storage as advertised on the drives. So, if you have 10 ⨯ 1 TB drives, that counts as 10 TB of storage. Smaller Systems Not everybody needs a big server, and even smaller systems can be cool and interesting (or noteworthy, as we put it below). For such systems we have a secondary list, so feel free to post your machine even if it doesn't quite meet the ranking criteria outlined above. Please still use the template post for your system, and stick to the rest of the criteria as applicable to your machine. External Sites This thread is inspired by the one on the [H]ard Forum, where you can find many huge systems as well. The Dutch thread on Gathering of Tweakers is also worth a look, although it is in Dutch, obviously. Serve the Home is also a great place for all things storage. Support/Bugs At the moment, @alpenwasser is the primary maintainer of the script and stats, so contact him about that kind of thing.
  17. I am thinking on buying a server which has 4X E7450s 128GB DDR2 RAM NO HDDs and the most important thing of all a DVD drive, unfortunately it doesn't have light scribe ;( is this worth it if I can get it for lets say under £50???
  18. I'm looking to setup a server in my basement and stumbled upon this CPU Mobo Combo board..... Anyone got any experience or opinions on this style of item? http://www.newegg.com/global/au/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157475
  19. What ports do i have to port for a csgo server? Do i have to port forward multiple ports or just one if you know what i mean. Btw i have no idea why i am posting this in the general discussion. -Thanks
  20. Hey guys/gals! Recently I've just finished building my custom Freenas NAS box, and everything is looking great! Although now that everything on my NAS is working locally, I'd love to access the files remotely. After doing some digging around on fourms and guides I decided a home based VPN would be the way to do it. My ASUS wifi router has an option in it's menus to act as a vpn server. Although after setting this up, I realized that I was only able to connect to this VPN while on my home network, not even 3g or any other network. So this basically means remote access doesn't work as of now. After doing more research I've discovered that certain ISPs block certain network ports normally used to host VPNs, and that is why I can only connect to the VPN locally? Or at least that is what I gathered from all the websites. So this is were I need your help. I'm rather new to things like port forwarding and VPN configuration, so I'd love if you had any input! Even if you could point me to a guide online of how to overcome this issue, that would be awesome! But of course if you have any ideas on how to fix this, I'd love your help! Thanks a bunch!
  21. Hi everyone, Can I get a good break down and discussion going on about the difference between workgroups, domains, and other network setups? I am working in a small CPA firm right now and may possibly want to distribute installations via their server, but I don't think the network is organized as a domain. Can we have a broad discussion about the differences of workgroups, domains, and other setups? Thank you.
  22. Hello people of LinusTechTips forums.. I have a project i am working on currently and would like assistance with one 'small' thing. My objective is to have a 20Gb/sec link between each of my servers and my pc. I have just purchased an apple xserve and have an old pc to turn into an archive server. What i would like to know is if anyone has experience setting up infiniband on mac os, and if i should change to ubuntu server or whatever. I have little experience with enterprise networking but feel confident about setting my servers up and running them.
  23. AMD's Zen server side of things, called Naples has been detailed. AMD has planned to launch 2 of them, in 1U or 2U configurations. The 1U system supports up to 32 NVMe drive, 4 gpus, and has dual Infiniband EDR interconnect to communicate between the storage and server. The 2U one, supports 6 discrete graphic cards, up to 26 NVMe drives, and has a single Infiniband EDR interconnect. AMD Naples will have up to 128 PCIe gen 3 lanes and 8 channel DDR4 memory architecture. The cpu itself will have up to 32 cores and 64 threads with a tdp of 35-180w. http://wccftech.com/amd-zen-naples-server-cpu-vega-gpu-platform/
  24. First post! Over they years, I have become quite fond of using the RaspberyyPi line for hobby/projects. Recently, I have deployed a basic home NAS/backup/seedbox using OpenMediaVault 3.x and hit multiple performance ceilings with this setup. Obviously, network speeds can only go so far and even with a gigabit network adapter, we saturate at USB 2.0. Even with the 64bit CPU, OMV images and other debian-based rPi capable distros run 32bit. Even when 64bit distros become the norm for ARM, the CPU can't handle much. Attempts to run Plex have been mixed; if the client has the codecs built in, it runs so-so. If not, it poops the bed. As an experiment, I popped Debian 8 and OMV 3.X onto an older MacBook Pro 13in. (Gen2 i5) I had in my backup stash. This CPU was able to handle a single stream without a hiccup, but kicked CPU usage to 96% - second stream was a bit laggy, third really started causing problems. So, from this I learned Plex transcoding at 720p+ is going to be pretty resource heavy depending on the files. I can either transcode anything I get elsewhere to play nicer or I need better hardware. Additionally, I began to feel I wanted more overhead on a home server to run other applications like a secure personal cloud as well as have a decent enough footprint to start teaching myself some new skills. My current hobbies/interest are pushing me towards media editing so I am going to need at the very least a slightly faster storage solution that my desktop and backing up to a rPi NAS but I am also interested in learning more about virtualization, testing, scripting, deployment - dev. ops/admin/QA professionally. My research has been all over the map; from taking a look at various mobile/IoT dev boards (with better i/o like gbit eth and sata) to the intel NUC line and Dell mini-servers. I've also been looking at various "pro-sumer" grade desktop hardware RAID boxes. The NUC line has some decent options but for the kind of work I want to do and based on what I saw with Plex on an i5, anything less than a Skull-Canyon NUC would not likely handle the kind of multi-tasking I am looking to do with a home server. At the SC NUC price-point, I might as well pay a little more for actual server hardware so this led me to the Supermicro SuperServer E200-8D. I'm pretty confident that box with 32gb of server ECC RAM and an intel m.2 nvme SSD would work nicely with a desktop e-sata raidbox. You could easily snake a e-sata>sata cable to the sata headers in the case and pop thru one of the removable back port covers. In the future, if the board survives, this system could be rack-mounted and used with a larger format raid array later and is compatible with a PCI riser/bracket for expansion. That said, a system like this could also be used to learn how to offload rendering work to another system, but I have been catching some references to some video work actually benefiting from a server having a GPU? Way cart before the horse. Alternatively, I could go Skull Canyon i7 NUC and also have a pretty capable HTPC setup as well. And, now I am rambling. Really just looking to spur discussion about this hardware. I am quite a long ways from purchasing anything any time soon, but I do want to learn as much as possible. I think a more powerful/secure home server/lab for myself and the work my partner does wouldn't be a bad investment.
  25. Hello, I am currently upgrading a Dell Poweredge T410 for personal use at home as a daily driver. I live alone and my job does not require use of a powerful computer but I am getting some parts for free and many parts for a very good deal. I am looking for creative ideas on how I could utilize my computer's potential because most things won't need the hardware I have/will have. I am posting this before I finish the build in case there is a cool idea that needs to be implemented during the build. Your ideas/thoughts are appreciated The parts that are planned to go into this are as follows: CPU: Dual xeon x5690's Storage: I have 2x2tb in it at the moment Ram: I don't have the ram yet but it goes up to 128 and I found a place where I can get it inexpensivly if I decided to max it out GPU: I'm not sure yet Everything else I'm not sure yet Sorry for the lack of more information This will be the primary computer I use for everything I might want to do, the only computer I have is low end laptop.
