HP ProLiant MicroServer N40L

As per my post a few days back, ordered a N40L.

All I can say is it’s a great bit of kit. I’ve installed Debian 6.0.4 amd64 and have configured it to do a number of services and other tasks.

So good to be running a dedicated physical linux host on my network again.

I installed Debian  on the 250gb drive it shipped with, and carved it up so I have about 200gb left over for data storage via samba (and nfs soon as I configure it up). I dropped in 2 x 500 7200rpm Samsungs I had from my desktop, and setup those in a mdadm raid1. I also put in a 2Tb WD Green to also share out via samba (and nfs).

Running quite nicely. Thumbs up. Think I need another one :)
