The only downside of the new server is the lack of a remote console (virtual KVM). It is something I have to live with for now. Luckily I have a old Silverstone case with a built in LCD monitor. It’s not perfect, but it’ll do for now.
Here is a picture of the new server (bottom) with the old server on top.
Took the opportunity to re-organize and tidy up all the cables. Not bad for 3 days worth of effort!
I just cannot sing enough praises on this new machine. It runs a lot cooler, and a lot quieter now.
