We were quite surprised when we received the servers; Wikipedia included full rackmount kits, instructions, and cables, all in the original packaging. More than we expected, and much appreciated!
Unfortunately, after installing the OS, one of the PowerEdges had a spontaneous failure of its RAID controller. Troubleshooting continues, but at this time it looks like that box is destined to be a “parts car”. Naturally, one of the other servers took that as a cue to reject *its* raid controller. (Why does this happen?) That server was hooked up to the Powervaults, so we don’t have a NAS right now.
Once we get all this sorted out, we’ll be consolidating projects on to the remaining servers.
