Well forgive me if this is a basic newbie question.
I am about to embark on building up a new file/mail server for our small office. I currently have redhat 8 running on an 8yr old PII 350 with 380M ram – and its just not coping well anymore.
The new server will recycle my old (recently superseded) workstation
Dual processor with 2 x AMD MP 1800’s (Tyan s2466n motherboard)
2 Gb Ram
It has a 60Gb ide drive and is getting 2 new 160Gb Ide’s with a PCI Raid controller card
I’m moving to CentOS 4 for this build
I am confident with installing the server OS
My question I have not been able to answer yet is confirming that the CentOS build will support & use the dual AMD MP’s
Any other tips / recommendations would be appreciated
The mail server app is called “InsightServer” by Bynari (from Dallas texas) it’s pretty stable once its running properly (that took a bit to start with), however the beauty is it gives you close to 100% MS exchange server functionality at simply an annual maintenance & upgrades fee – outlook connects pretty seamlessly with it.
File serving I have been using Samba
We have about 20G of critical file data & our mailboxes run to around 15- 20G
