 * Our switch "Baltar" was replaced by a smaller version in Dec 2008 to free up cabinet space, both for extra airflow and preparation to rack a new machine, to which all email processing will be moved.

Removed from rack in December 2008 to make space needed for servicing other machines. Server wasn't able to run with current hardware, and the board determined that it would be more effective to purchase a higher-powered server to fill our rack rather than purchase parts needed to bring Xanadu into operation.

'''Use: was a secondary KDC and AFS server. Decomissioned after it developed problems in the hardware (as we perceived it) network stack. '''

This page collects information on the hardware that we have installed or plan to install as part of HCoop infrastructure.

Intended Use
Apache hosting and dynamic web content, including HCoop web services



Use: email server, backup server


This is slated for removal in early-mid 2013. See ToDo.

Use: dynamic web content, services that involve running arbitrary code from members (including custom daemons, etc.)


The StarTech Server Remote Control External KVM over IP provides access to systems that may have a degraded network. It allows us to monitor Power-On Self Test (POST), configure BIOS/CMOS, and even reinstall operating system software. It must be connected to another multiple port KVM in order to have access to more than one server.

Use: Secondary KDC and SpamAssassin

(The 1x2 GB RAM module was acquired from Newegg, and the two disks from ServerSupply. Purchases were made in Sep 2008, but ServerSupply took good 3 weeks to deliver).
