IBM Server – Easy to replace a defective disk – 137


IBM servers are amazing, even when a disk fails, they are stunning easy to get up and running again.
But it requires that you did it right, from the start and spent the extra resources to establish security on your Raid configuration.
My PlayHouse is a channel where i will show, what i am working on. I have this house, it is 168 Square Meters / 1808.3ft² and it is full, of half-finished projects.

I love working with heating, insulation, Servers, computers, Datacenter, green power, alternative energy, solar, wind and more. It all costs, but I’m trying to get the most out of my money, and my time.
