    Explosion Proof Museum Piece?

    Probably was used in mining equipment. Everything used in underground mining has to be explosion proof so that no spark can be generated if the glass breaks.

    RAID anyone ??

    I'm not wedded to Win Server 08. My initial thought was that the AV server software would be running on the server and would need an OS capable of this. I now realize the AV server software runs off the local machine and accesses the server for data. I had the OS installed on a SSD and it the drive could easily be swapped for another with a different, more suitable, user friendly OS installed.

    RAID anyone ??

    A number of years ago I bought a large 20 bay server. Supermicro IIRC, unit is buried and will take some effort to get to. Dual CPU dual power supply. Initially installed 4-6 either 1 or 2 TB drives, with the intention of expanding as needed, to use as a server primarily for storage of a large music and movie collection. It's been so long I've forgotten what RAID it is set up for but I'm thinking 5, 6, or 10. Had a computer service place install Win Server 2008. They didn't configure something correctly so I couldn't access the any of the drives from the network. Spent a little time with Windows servers for dummies and couldn't figure it out. About this time my job went to 6 10s and project got shelved. I'd like to get this beast doing the job it was purchased for instead of collecting dust. My plan is to use JRiver for the media client. The house will have 2 networks one connected to internet and the one with this server connected without internet access so an OS that no longer gets security updates is OK. My goal is to be able to access the data stored on the server from any room in the house through ethernet cable and be able to watch a movie in 1 room and listen to the stereo or watch another in another room. I'm open to any assistance and more than happy to take the discussion to PM.

    RIP : George HW Bush

    Been too long since the last presidential funeral and I haven't been in to get the memo. All federal agencies, including USPS, typically close for the national day of mourning. I believe President Trump declared this to be 12/5/18. Business as usual the next day. Thank GOD I"M NOT A CARRIER anymore, having a double load during the holiday season will suck.
