I’ve added power indicator LED’s to both nodes. Is blue overdone by now?
The nodes have been running benchmark VM’s for a few days with zero problems. I think these servers were definitely a kick ass deal. Still waiting for NICs for the other server, will repeat the procedure and once they pass all tests, will drop it off at the datacenter. I’ll retire a few PowerEdge 1950’s from the rack there. Will probably put those up on Kijiji as well. I’ve always been a fan of the Dell PowerEdge servers. I’ve ran PE’s since the 1750 came out (that server was LOUD). The PE2950/1950 series were my favourite, though they sucked power like there’s no tomorrow.
