I have followed the progress of LinuxMCE for a couple of years now.I am a totally noob when i comes to Linux so i have't really got in to LMCE. But now I can hold back my eager to learn how to build any more. I would like to try put up my first complete system. I'm building a new house so I can do all adjustments that's needed to totally automate!! (as much as possible)
Will use about 30 X10 devices. [DIN sockets] to start with. I got me a full hight Rittal Rack, were I can put all the gears.
So I finally will start to build my 1st Coreserver.
Now would I need you gurus to give me some advices and input how to build an Ultimate core server!
To start with have bought a Koolance 4u rack chassi. [watercooled]
and pre orded the following mobo Gigabyte GA-M720-US3 via an AMD Athlon2 X3 435 2,9Ghz, AM3,
Do anyone any experence of this CPU and mobo togeher with LMCE?
I'm not sure what kind of storage I gone use. I planned to have an parallel windows environment running on an separate ESXi server.
So It would be great to have an ISCSI solution.
Is it possible to integrate FreeNAS in LMCE?
And then from the ESXI server run the virtual disks at the core server?
Or maybe it's better to have a separate storage server/solution?
Please advice an linux noob as me!
