I have had this for the last few years but only used it as an ESXi server for a few weeks and never did anythign else with it.  Would prefer just to get rid of it locally to somebody who can use it for a fair price otherwise I will just part it out (mainly for the drives).

2 X 3.2ghz Xeon
12GB Ram (6 X 2G Dimms)
4 X  146GB 10kRpm SCSI 320
PERC3 Raid controller.
Redundant 500w power supplies
Rackmount (No rails)

I was thinking 200$ in BTC if anyone is intrested

Let me know how much you want for the RAM if you decide to part it out.

This is a great server for general use. I have one and it's quick and has pretty much done everything I've thrown at it gracefully. It currently pulls duty as my Mythtv backend, Teamspeak 3 server, Minecraft server, and samba server. The one thing that it doesn't have is virtualization technology. Not really a big deal if you're only running an OS natively. If you decide to use Xenserver you won't be able to run Windows based VMs, but you shouldn't have any problems with ESXi. The remote server management is pretty cool as well, letting you monitor almost everything on the machine. Reboot, shutdown, edit your raid array remotely and all independently of the OS. Anyways, this is nothing new for anyone who knows these rack servers, but I thought I'd expand on it for the people who are considering picking one up!

It will run up to ESXi 3.5 the newer versions (4/5) need CPUs with the newer virtualization features. Even at 3.5 the free ESXi is awsome, I just never used it because it was so loud and it was more practical to use my workstation. If you have a basement to put it in it would be golden .. otherwise it sounds like a jet engine. There were some guides out there on quieting them down but I just did not take it that far.

It is a bit droning, but I have it in my office with my miners so it's not that big of deal. It's still a great server though, either way. The OSM is pretty nifty once you get it setup. I have it running Ubuntu right now, but I have had CentOS running on it as well for a time and have gotten OSM working on both.

Those things sure are bulletproof, as are the 2850's, but damn once I went HP, I never went back. G5 and newer are awesome. DL360/380.
The older generation SCSI drives tend to fail too easily and are tiny to boot.

55+ pounds, I really don't want to ship it.

Perfectly understood. I would probably not want to pay for the shipment anyway Smiley

I have two of these for sale as well... similar specs.  One is loaded with 146 GB and one is loaded with 73 GB drives.  I can't recall RAM, somewhere in the 4 GB range I think.  I will ship if you pay shipping.

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.
