Re: Installing 3TB drives - what Partition Table to use?

Re: Show Us your home server

Ok, so here's my new server machine. When I built it I hadn't made up my mind whether to run WHS or alternatively Amahi with lots of VMs. ATM it's neither nor, but Amahi with very few (one) VM, so even the very small Core i3-530 is kind of overdimensioned. The Gigabyte board has only 4x Sata which ...

Re: checkover, please?

Is there a command to list all the directories that are supposed to be in the greyhole pool AND list the directories that should not be in the pool?? If I could read my own list of "should and should not pool" directories I could execute that to fix my storage fill-up problem on my two 1tb drives. A...

Re: Show Us your home server

Nice! I keep a paintbrush with long, soft bristles handy and whenever I open a box, I clean all the dust with the vacuum cleaner and the brush! It accumulates quickly for me! I notice you have some dust in the heatsink. Clean it for smoother operation. Funny you mention it, cuz after doing my 4 fan...

Re: checkover, please?

Ideally, only some of my folders should be inside the greyhole pool. I previously changed that some exist only in the /files folder and not within the pool. and.. is this what the folder structure should look like? [root@srvr1011 ~]# greyhole -s Greyhole Statistics =================== Storage Pool T...

In recent weeks I also changed over to the xfce environment, and have avoided logging into any of the usernames on my fedora12/amahi server, partly because it's been causing some issues before I changed to xf...
