comment is possible to set up a PXE Server on VMWare Server
In January 2010 VMware Server was declared discontinued; general support ended on June 30, 2011. This site is professional sysadmins and thus unsupported code is not handled here.

comment Does VMware ESx server run a operation system of its own to manage the the hardware(like a host OS) inside of VMware ESx server
There's a range of things you can do with it but most or all of them are available via the client-based CLI's - in particular the PowerCLI is very powerful and there's lots of existing scripts out there available for free to help with these things. To be honest though you really do sound like you'd benefit from some training, vSphere isn't the easiest thing to just pick up and go.

comment recovering a corrupt degraded btrfs RAID6, need to manually clear an inode
There is no stable version of BTRFS, this site is for professional sysadmins who inherently aim to use supportable and stable products - thus this question is not relevant to this site.

comment HP ProLiant DL380 G6 with 2 x Intel x5650 CPUs
@kasperd - that CPU model is compatible but probably does need a BIOS update, they also need the extra fan/s for the second processor too.

Did you ensure the server was up to the latest version of all the various drivers/bios's via the SPP before adding the new processors?

comment Wiping hard drives in an IBM DS3512
A lot of arrays have a 'wipe data' option where the controller heads ensure a good job, don't know that model but take a look. Otherwise crush/burn them if you're really bothered.

comment How to replace SCSI with SATA or adapt SCSI to SATA drives
which exact generation of 385 have you got? if in doubt find the server's part number, it'll be on the outside and is a 6-digit number followed but a three character string - i.e. 123456-B21 or similar - let us know and we can help with this.
