Q: Hard Disc Layout for Tjener?
I am going to order a really powerfull server machine that will serve as
Tjener (no X). Klaus gave me several hints - and now I think about a
system that includes an extra PCI RAID conroller with at least 3 SCSI
platters under RAID-5.
I expect their size to be like 36 GB each (hot plug). This is sufficient
for the main installation, ldap, logfiles, backup etc. - but regarding
up to 1000 home directories - plus possible CD images in case we
integrate windows clients (cd deamon tools, hd images) - I'd plea for
at least 100 GB.
Now, I consider different options, as the price for having that space on
scsi platters seems way too much:
i) have an additional IDE HD for home0 and samba shares
(problem: where to backup? data loss?)
ii) have an extra file server
(only for samba? or also for NFS/home0? feasable with skolelinux?)
Thank you in advance for your opinions
