Nas4Free on Dell Poweredge T110

#1

Post by ChriZathens »

Hi there.
I had a Dell Poweredge T110 lying around at work and thought I should do something with it.
So installed it as an alternative backup server to have a few files faster accessible (comparing to e.g. the tape)
The T110 is equiped with a Dell S100 controller and using the BIOS I was able to set all Hard disks to AHCI non Raid
It currently has 4x500GB Hard disks in RaidZ and 8GB Ram
Installed zfskerneltune and ExtendedGUI
Everything is working fine so far. Since those poweredge servers can be found (used) for less than $300, I thought I should post this info in case someone is interested. Stability is not 100% confirmed yet, but will report back in a few days...
Here is a screenshot from Status page:

Since the first post, the server has been working without a single issue.
The only time I rebooted it, was to upgrade it to latest version of Nas4Free (currectly 9.2.0.1 - Shigawire revision 972)
t110.jpg
After a month without a hitch, I think it is time to say that this branded server works out of the box
@raul: please add it to the wiki if you like
Some additional specs (as seen from inside n4f):
  • System:Dell Poweredge T110 server
  • Works out of the box:Yes - just remember to change to non-raid from BIOS in order to use ZFS
  • RAM:2x4GB Kingston KTD-PE313E/4G Unbuffered ECC Ram
  • Network: Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet Controller, ASIC rev. 0x00a200 - speeds read/write are solid above 95 MB/sec. To be more precise, I write to the server at 96MB/sec and read from the server at 115MB/sec
  • HDD controller:Intel 5 Series/3400 Series AHCI SATA controller
  • Boots from USB:Yes, the machine contains two USB 2.0 ports on the motherboard and n4f embedded boots from the first one without any issues

After about 9 months I thought I should post an update.
Server is running rock solid with a 247 days uptime (since the last update)
The next time it will shutdown is when I have time to upgrade to 9.3.0.1 release

unless you have a need or a problem skip the updates.
more trouble comes here seeking help for update problems than questions about one working just fine.
the last "upgrade" I did, after off loading the data from the degraded pool, was because of a data drive failure in a FN-7 box.
to me, needless upgrading is like sticking a pin into the hot side of a wall socket to see if you are grounded.

As long as you do not make aptitude safe-upgrade, aptitude dist-upgrade as new kernel is being installed and reboot is required ;)

A bit of an update regarding this server...
It currently has 4x2TB WD Reds in a RaidZ1 config and the RAM was lowered to 4GB (one module crapped out on me and before getting another I realized that even with 4GB of Ram it is still saturating the Gbit Network, so I let it be)
Today I encountered a problem, but at the end all is OK and server is upgraded to the latest, as of now, beta: 10.3.0.3 - Pilingitam (revision 2676)
