Hi all I am going to install several NFS server in FreebSD for several customers and the computer has the following characteristics:
- MSI 945PNeo Platinum Main Board, chipset 915P, ICH7R, VIA® 6410, 82573 PCI-E Gb LAN, PCI Express 16x VGA, VIA® 6307 (IEEE1394) - Intel EM64T P4 CPU 3,2Ghz, 800Mhz FSB, 2Mb L2 - SDRAM 1Gb DDR2 - HD IDE 80 GB Seagate - 2x HD SATA 200Gb Seagate in RAID 1 controlled by the chipset of the mainboard. I want to install in this system a NFS, Samba, and TCP, in order to make possible to use the data on the RAID 1 like a file repository for the customer ms windows network, and also get some data files from there homes with FTP (I will install pfsense in another small pc). I think that I must install the "amd64" flavour of FreeBSD, because it is recommended for the EM64T Intel chip. But I don't know if this flacour is well tested and if instead of it, i must install the "i386" flavour of FreeBSD. I have seen also that "amd64" seems doesn't have all the devices drivers that "i386" have, so I don't know what to do really. Also I observ that when I run the install CD 1, it recognize the following disks: - ad0 => the main HD (IDE) - ad12 => one of the SATA HD - ad8 => the other SATA HD - ar8 => ???? what is this ? I think is the RAID controller because is of logic, but, must I create filesystems on the ad12, ad8? or only on ar8? or on all?. thanks in advance sincerely Juan Coruña Desarrollo de Software Atlantico _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
