RLX Blade Hard Drives?

Jan 7, 2008

Do the old RLX Blade servers use 'mini' hard drives? I can't find an answer anywhere. I seem to recall that they use smaller 2.5" drives. Is this the case?

And, if so, do they make "good" drives worthy of being in a server in that size? Are they essentially just a laptop drive?

APC Remote Reboot On Blade

Jul 30, 2007

Is it possible to use a APC remote reboot power strip for a server in a blade?

Like for example, say there are 16 servers in a blade, can you remote reboot them individually?

Because blade servers have only like 3-4 redundant power supplies and I am assuming all the 16 servers are powered by the onboard power supplies in the blade enclosure. So...if thats the case, how is it possible to reboot each individual server?

Dell Blade Servers

Apr 7, 2007

at Dell's Blade Servers?


I was checking on it and it seems very attractive..
10 servers on a 7u form factor....
power supply is enclosure based instead of server based.. can be redundant or not...

what do you guys think?

I built an entry-level server to check the blade's price..
Dual Core Intel® Xeon® 5050; 2X2MB Cache, 3.0GHz, 667MHZ FSB [Included in Price]
No Operating System [Included in Price]
2GB 533MHz (4X512MB), Single Ranked DIMMs [Included in Price]
SAS-SATA, No RAID, 1-2 Hard Drives attached to onboard SAS-SATA Controller [Included in Price]
40GB 5.4K RPM SATA Universal Hard Drive [Included in Price]
2nd HDD: HDD Blank, For Diskless or Single HDD Configurations [Included in Price]
NO Operating system, Microsoft Configuration [Included in Price]
3Yr BASIC SUPPORT: 5x10 HW-Only, 5x10 NBD Onsite [Included in Price]
Broadcom Dual Port TCP/IP Offload Engine Not Enabled [Included in Price]

$1,458 (enclosure not included)

I'll build the normal rack server with the same approximate configuration and see the difference...

And btw, if you actually call them to get the server, they'll drop the price..

I've seen them giving 300+ USD of discount on a $1,200 laptop..

DELL Blade And Storage Solutions

Jun 21, 2007

I am thinking on using dell blade and storage solutions for my servers.

I am interested in installing FreeBSD in blade servers and storage solutions.

I am thinking on using blade system for load balancing and storage solution for information security/base.

Is it possible to use FreeBSD in blade servers.

My second question would be, is it possible to connect storage solution to freebsd setups as a hdd.

I want to use blade servers as a computing power and storage solution as hdd.

With this way, i believe it will be possible to extend storage and servers easly.

Improve Performance- Web Server, SSH Server, And Mail Server

May 8, 2007

I've got a VPS which is serving as the main server for a number of sites. Web Server, SSH Server, and Mail Server.

What I've got running:

Apache2, PHP5, MySQL5, Dovecot, Postfix

One of the sites is a growing forum with a MASSIVE photo album. This is the site where I notice the most slowness.

Changing the server software is not an option - Only optimization.

Plesk 11.x / Windows :: Don't Have Root Access To Server As It Is A Webfusion Dedicated Server

Oct 16, 2013

I have Plesk 11.5 (service provider mode) on a Windows 2008 server IIS7.Most of my sites are developed in .asp and therefore i use a custom 500-100.asp error page that check s the IP of the visitor then displays either a friendly error, or if its my IP a full error of what has happened (it also emails me the error). This allows me to debug pages easily whilst developing and to keep an eye on anyone trying SQL Injection hacks on my sites (as the error and email also have session variables and IP address).I dont have root access to the server as it is a Webfusion dedicated server.I have following the Plesk documentation -

1) Switch on custom errors for the subscription
2) Look in virtual directories and navigate to error documents
3) Find the error in question (500:100) and change it to point at either a file or URL

FILE - I had the data centre add in the 500-100.asp error page in to the virtual template so that my page is available in the list of virtual files - this didn't work but that maybe because its not a static page??

URL - when i add the path it says its incorrect, if i add a fully qualified address, it accepts it but it doesn't work.give me a specific example of the URL that can be entered relative to the root as the format in the documentation isn't accepted. The last step is to restart IIS which is also an issue as i cant seem to do this from the Plesk panel..It is as if it isn't catching the 500:100 error, and only catching the general 500 error??

Urchin 5 / Google A . Transfering From Server To Server (Serial Already Activated)

Nov 21, 2006

I am currently running Google Analytics/Urchin 5 (v5.7.02), on a server, the server has started to act up, (on its last legs etc) and now I am trying to transfer the Urchin Software to a new server, where it would work effectively.

However upon installing the urchin software on the new server and running it (localhost:9999), I am presented with An Action Items Page, and these following choices

Obtain Demo License
Buy License
Activate Pre-Purchased License

I choose ‘Activate Pre-Purchased License’ pop in the Serial number and complete the registration then…

Urchin Licensing Center -- Error!

An error has occured during your transaction, please use the back button and correct the problem. The specific error message is:

• Unable to generate a license. Some possible reasons:

Your serial code is currently active <<< How do I disable it and use it on another server?

So all I want to do is deactivate the serial and reactivate it on another server.

Does anyone have experience with this or a similar problem or have a solution to this problem. Any help be most appriciated.

Or even a Contact Number so that i can get some one over the phone!

File Server Setup With Do I Choose The Config For The Server

I just want to use a server for file sharing, it will have nginx and that's it. I'm looking at centos, or freebsd, but I been using centos forever now and I'm not sure how to use freebsd, should I just stay with centos?

Do I tell my hosting provider to just install the OS and give me ssh action and that's it? Don't install any control panels or any other stuff? I want one domain and one subdomain on it though and ftp action.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Full Server Migration To New Server With Same Hostname?

Jul 20, 2015

I'm wondering whether it is possible to perform a full server migration to a new Plesk server with the same hostname or will Plesk give an error about the hostname being the same?

The new server would not be accessible by hostname (only via IP) until DNS and glue records were changed after the migration.

Cheap European Server For Small Game Server

Aug 31, 2008

I've been developing a small 2D MMORPG lately. I bought a VPS to run the server on a few days ago and sadly it doesn't work so well. Sometimes the loads go pretty high (afaik not caused by me) and MySQL freezes, causing the server to just wait for MySQL to unlock, hanging all the players around on the map. Not a good thing.

Anyway, the game is very small scale, and I'm not planning to have more than maybe 30-50 players online. It does not suck up much CPU, I had ~10 guys online and loads stayed down at 0.00 on the VPS box.

Problem with getting a dedicated is our very low budget. As I'm still underage and living at home hammering my pc and don't have any real incomes, we're talking numbers like $ 30 - $ 50 USD per month - it's really hard to find for that price in Europe.

Monthly payment, $ 30 - $ 50 / month, no setup (or very small setup, like $ 20)
10Mbit/s or faster connection, 100GB traffic should do
500MHz CPU is all cool
512MB or more RAM
5GB diskspace is enough
Has to be in Europe due to ping times (< 100ms)
Linux, Debian 4.0 prefered

If anyone knows where I could get something like this for a low price, $ 30 to $ 50 USD, it'd be great.

Worth Upgrading To Quadcore Server (win2003 Server)?

Dec 8, 2008

Site is currently running on a single code single cpu p4 server. Am thinking of upgrading to a quad core Xeon server.

My site is pretty dynamic with lots of hits to php / mysql, and has trouble keeping up with the requests sometimes. Would a quadcore Xeon significantly help?

Server Software:
Windows 2003 Server
php 5.2.6
apache 2
mysql 4.1

Current Setup:
P4 2.8 single core/cpu.

Proposed setup
Xeon 3210 quadcore

I guess my confusion lies in the following:

1. Can win2003 server make use of the quadcores?
2. Does php / apache / mysql make use of the quadcores?
3. Will i see a significant increase in the amount of pages i can serve?

I am going to be buying a dedicated server from kimsufi Most likely the 2XL Package.

My streamers will be using my server aswell, On weekends we will be running 3-4 streams at a time, weekdays 1-2 at a time.

Samba Server :: Can Linux And Windows Exist On The Same Server?

Jan 10, 2008

I have a linux server for a video sharring site

The video encoder that I prefer to use will only work in a windows enviorment

The windows server would pass off the converted video to the Linux server.

Will a Samba server for Linux allow a Linux machine to connect and share files with a Windows machine work for this application.

Although it's probably a dumb question but can Linux and Windows exist on the same server?
