It's just a 110 wiring block. More or less a type of punch down block. (According to a quick Googling, that wiring block is generally Cat5e compliant these days, so you could use it for a 100Mbit network connection). Instead of a patch panel Which has a set number of jacks pre-sized and pre-wired to a certain standard (like RJ45 jacks or RJ 12 jacks or ...

Those are 110 punch down blocks with 110 to RJ45 cables. http://store.cablesplususa.com/110-block-patching-110-to-rj45-patch-cords.html

That's called an AT&T MD110 punch-down patch panel from the late-80's/early-90's - I used them, they were 10Mbps only.

If using HP/Dell/similar nothing apart from the RAM and hard drives will be readily interchangeable from any other vendor or generic part. Technically you could swap out CPUs although the heat sinks will be specific and the motherboard will often only support a certain speed and model number of CPU. If you going down this route IT shops generally stick to ...

So, I'll pose another question: Why is it necessary to run HP Insight hardware diagnostics on servers prior to provisioning? In my comment above, I indicated that there's little to gain by doing this preemptively in large HP ProLiant environments. I should clarify my thoughts on that... In order of descending frequency, let's look at the types of issues ...

I second MadHatter's suggestion of using a desktop UPS. In fact, that's exactly the solution I settled on a few years back when I got a contract to set up wireless coverage for a couple million square feet of warehouse. To avoid needing expensive new fiber runs, the routers and switches for each building were hung up in the ceiling, and provided power with ...

The comparison with light bulbs in the comments is... not ideal, because unlike light bulbs servers actually need to stay on 24/7. The problem with building your own server is support--both for parts and for software. My recommendation would be to get the "greenest" standard hardware you can find--for the warranties--and then virtualize everything on it. ...

Wow... (there are special tools available for HP systems) Install the hpssacli tool: And then look at the output of the hpssacli ctrl all show config command: # hpssacli ctrl all show config Smart Array P410i in Slot 0 (Embedded) (sn: 50123456789ABCDE) array A (SAS, Unused Space: 0 MB) logicaldrive 1 (838.1 GB, RAID 1+0, OK) ...

The tool for finding a computer's physical location based nothing more than its network cable is politely referred to as an "intern". Your intern tool may well request, and be greatly assisted by something called a cable tracer/toner/mapper/identifier, but if I did it by hand or with an arp table and a command line, so can anyone. Once identified, labeling ...

Assuming that Ethernet ports in the wall correspond to physical locations (and assuming ethernet is used instead of wifi) if there is a managed switch attached to the other end of the ports then you can simply query the device that is attached to each port (and identify it by MAC address) using your favorite SNMP tool.Assuming that Ethernet ports in the ...

Yes, pretty much any SD card will be usable in your Dell R610. However, an important consideration is that if you use a normal SD card, your iDRAC will only be able to access a single, 256 MB partition on that card. If you use a vFlash card, your iDRAC will be able to access up to 16 partitions on the SD card, with a maximum partition size of 4 GB. If you ...

I had the exactly same error. I solved this by updating lvm version to lvm2-2.02.111-2.el6_6.1. Once you update the lvm, you should be able to run vgreduce --removemissing --force vgQ3 http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/centos/updates/6.6/x86_64/Packages/lvm2-2.02.111-2.el6_6.1.x86_64.html

Most of the other answers here have addressed the management features of an HP server, but not so much the reasons you would see a performance difference. HP-specific features like iLO and Intelligent Provisioning are wonderful, but they do not make your compile times any faster. First off make sure you are really comparing apples to apples on the CPU/RAM. ...
