Greetings again everyone ......
First, from my previous (and first ) post on this forum I wound up blowing an enormous amount of time trying to install Untangle on an all Intel system. All USB, no PS/2 - and in the end I did a test with a 4g RAM - 525 Supermicro - and the install from start to finish to about 15 to 17 minutes and Untangle loaded right up.
So I'm going with a 525 based supermicro with 4gb of RAM. As many of you know the Supermicro also contains dual GB NICs ....... It also contains a riser card for one PCI-E card.
Also - per Untangle, specs for having 50 to 150 users are, a single dual core processor and 2gb of RAM (or greater). Mine has 4gb ..... Just an FYI
Anyhow - my boss is being rather stubborn with wanting to go with a mirrored RAID setup on the Supermicro. I have read / researched / and been told even on this forum that RAIDs can be problematic with Linux.
So, does anyone know of a PCI-E SATA Raid controller just to do RAID 1, that is compatible with Untangle?
A software based RAID would also be acceptable, though I would prefer hardware based.
Any thoughts, ideas, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks bunches .....
