A few months ago I bought the new x3350 Server. Previously the x3250 was my standard model for small solutions. But I was always missing some important features which are now available with the x3350. These are:
- Hot-swap redundant power supplies
- Dual Gigabit Ethernet for bonding
- Light path diagnostics
Thank you IBM for exactly implementing my wishlist
When I installed Debian etch on the machine everything worked fine except the broadcom NICs. They were not detected so I had to use a newer kernel.
The problem was solved when “Etch and a half” was released because the 2.6.24 kernel includes a newer tg3 module.
