Building A New Server

Well, I made a stupid programming mistake and messed up a monitoring script such that it was reporting that the drives were OK when they in fact weren’t. Between that and some flakiness that I’ve localized to the motherboard/power supply, and needing to upgrade the O/S, I’m putting a new machine together. It’ll be based off of an Athlon 64 X2 and will have a little more RAM than the old one did. As a side benefit it looks like the processor supports virtualization so I’m going to build a few VMWare virtual machines to play around with. Look for an outage later on this week while I build and move data.
