I supose I could just put a KVM on the PC's
you forget the WAF and the the Computer illiterate wife who will want to download torrents while Im away from home 50% of the year
Can anyone help me out with a Solaris Express 11 install.
I have done the usbcopy method to boot from USB but I make changes etc and reboot and they are all missing again.
I have also tried installing from CD to the USB drive and its extremely slow, unusuable.
What are you guys using to run Solaris Express on?
I had a USB DVD drive, burnt the solaris live cd on it, pretty easy.
I'm running OpenIndiana (Solaris fork) with the stock Microserver NIC (some Broadcom job.. presents as bge0) and am having to manually start the network connection every time I boot. Is this because I haven't configured something right or should I just go get an Intel NIC?
Does she have her own PC? Install the uTorrent extension for chrome on it. Then all you do is right click on a torrent and choose 'add to utorrent' and it will download and send it to the Microserver and start downloading.
Then just put a shortcut on her desktop to the download directory and a link to Webui so she can watch the progress.
No need for her to ever touch the Microserver.
Thanks for the idea, so I hacked the ROM to enable the 5th SATA port and connected a old 120GB 2.5" drive I had lying a round. All good so far, bios ok and at windows install it recognised it as well.
Selected this new drive (Disk 2) to install windows, and I can see Disk0: 2drives in raid 0 and Disk1 which is 2 drives in raid 1.
But, like before at the first win7 setup reboot it crashed again! When I look at the drive partitions I can see that W7 setup has partitioned Disk0 again!!
WTF is Win7 doing.
Oh well, 8 hours so far on W7!!!
Any ideas guys how I can fix this??? Thanks
KVM sound easier
Pull all drives bar the 120
Install windows 7
Check the boot order of drives
Once it's up and running shutdown and add your other drives
Anyone added a dual port NIC to their microserver? Looking at the follow, not sure it will fit in regards to length etc:
yes i have an intel 1000pt dual in one of mine, its going to get swapped out for a quad
where could i buy one of these in adelaide? or is it an online order thing only? thanks.
Yes, I have the HP branded ones in both of mine.
http://code.google.com/p/transmisson-remote-gui/ is even easier again. Just like having a torrent client installed and operating from her own PC. Huge WAF in my home
Is this going to work with utorrent? Isn't transmission Mac only?
The client GUI works on Mac, Windows and Linux. The server daemon works on Mac, many Linux servers, and a few embedded systems (NAS's).
Pully my hair over this issue...
FreeNAS 0.7.2 kernel: bge0: watchdog timeout -- resetting
This would appear to be a common FreeBSD fault, so it's no surprise that it happens on FreeNAS 0.7.2 Sabanda (revision 6469) (I've tried many revisions, all the same or worse with FreeNAS stability and restarting!).
This is occurring on a HP ProLiant MicroServer N36L with embedded network interface on motherboard.
bge0: <HP NC107i PCIe Gigabit Server Adapter, ASIC rev. 0x5784100>
<BCM5784 10/100/1000baseTX PHY>
kernel: bge0: link state changed to UP
kernel: bge0: link state changed to DOWN
kernel: bge0: watchdog timeout -- resetting
not much good for a Network Attached Storage device, keep reseting it's networking.
Any ideas, other than adding a new network interface card?
Dammit, looks like i'm going to have to install windows to get a proper dlna server. I have freenas 0.7.2 running really well off a USB stick, only trouble is that the UPnP media servers are not compatible with WiseLink Pro on our Samsung TV's, whereas the TVMOBili DLNA software I have on my PC is running an absolute treat
Thank you Stanza, that did the trick, it's all working. Help from all much appreciated.
anyone know where the cheapest N36L i can order?
