Some of our servers have it, some of them don't-- I've
been here four months, and wasn't involved in prior
purchases. If I had my druthers, we'd be on HP servers
instead (I'd also probably be able to get a good price on
Ebay for "druthers," but I digress), or IBM, or one of
several other more expensive options, but for now I'm
playing the hand I was dealt, serverwise. On the plus
side, they're all starting out with a comfortable 4 gigs
hit the power button from the other side of the planet.
Right, PAE is sort of a blast from the past, and I'd much
sooner go to a new server than screw around with the 4gb
limit personally. Is there any more work to maintaining
an amd64 install than "grab a different ISO when it's
time to install the box?"
What advantages/disadvantages do you see with running
the 64 bit
architecture? I must confess, it never occured to me to
I'm running the Dual Core Xeon processors, if that helps
In our case, we're primarily concerned about RAM. These
units are starting
out with 4G, and we're monitoring them so we can add RAM
when the usage
goes up. amd64 is obviously going to be better
supported going forward
Also, will it work on the Xeon dual core? I've always
been comfortably removed from the hardware level, and my
new responsibilities aren't quite familiar to me yet...
We just recently purchased a PowerEdge 6850 configured
4x3.0ghz dual core zeon processors. The AMD64 ISO install
used. Once the basic install was complete, I recompiled
kernel with SMP. They are all showing up and operational.
