So I went ahead and bought a new Dell PowerEdge SC430, as my normal server is falling over on a far too regular basis. Lovely. Except that when I got it home, I made the discovery that Dell no longer fit PS/2 keyboard connectors. There are 7 USB slots, however. And guess which kind of keyboard I don’t posess?
On top of that, I also found that the only free-standing monitor I posess only had a DVI cable, not a VGA.
So, back to work to liberate some parts from the stores for an evening. And now I have a very nice shiny new server running FreeBSD.
Now starts the hard bit, configuring it the same as the other one…
