Looking for a server farm

Q: Looking for a server farm

I am looking for a location to place a backup server. This server will only be written to unless the primary server goes down hard and clients are directed to start using the backup server. Bandwidth will be not more than moderate unless this server goes live as the primary - and in that case it will only be the primary until the real primary is brought back online.

My preferred location is close to a backbone router because I don't want latency issues to be significant - especially because my clients will all be doing dual-writes and this second write is pure overhead. Someplace in the central United States would be best.

This is a startup for an ASP service. My primary server will be located in Dayton OH. The backup needs to be far enough from it physically and logically to never find itself taken out in the same catastrophe.

Because this is a startup, I am very cost sensitive.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Preferred Solution: Looking for a server farm

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Well my boss has decided to go crazy and has tasked me with trying to buy server hardware for a new Citrix farm he wants to implement.

The problem is the talks I have had with Citrix people I can't get ANY kind of help as far as number of users per server CPU, RAM requirements and things of that nature, this is making it difficult to tell my boss the hardware we should get.

I already know we want Raid 5 and a fair amount of storage (as citrix has to have the applications images loaded onto the server correct?), will multi processor help the number of users that can connect?

With this in mind and knowing we only use standard applications I.E. windows XP pro, Office 2003, and fery few other applications does anyone have a clue what type of servers I should be looking at? I.E. RAM requirements and CPU speed.

Is CPU speed directly proportional to the number of users who can connect to any given server? I know we are going to have some kind of load balencing solution for failover but I wanted to get some ideas on what to prep for.

Hi all,

I have a client that I'm doing some graphics stuff for and he has a render farm at his house. We are trying to set up a way that I can log into his render farm via Virtual Private Network or something similar and set up Maya renders and have the frames sent back to my computer at my office.

Does anyone have any experience setting up a VPN who could help me out with some info or point me toward some good resources.

I live on a farm in a country area where all we get is dial up and moteralla wireless internet....which is very expensive. My whole family, unfortunatly for me, lives on the farm. My father will only get the highspeed moterolla
(w, w, w)....neighbourhoodwireless(c, o, m) if i can figure out a way to network to houses over 300 feet away. I am not sure if this internet can do this but it does say we can extend MD range to 2-10miles(look in the statistics page with the prices, near the bottm)?I'm confused at that. But if thats not a 2-10mile network system than would it be possible to physically connect the 2 houses over 600 feet away creating a network we can share using ethernet or some other kind of cables with many adapters? How would this effect the speed and quality? Any kind of response would be deeply appreciated.

ok, i've been modeling in 3d for a while now and mostly do still frames but i have a few scenes that i want to render and they're quite complicated and long so, naturally, the rendering takes way too long for my liking.

i had heard about render farms but i looked up the prices and their out of my budget range. so i thought about building my own at home. i've looked all over the internet and the only site i've found over and over again on how to setup a render farm is http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,1697,1847413,00.asp <-- here.

The only problem im having with this is, how exactly you connect the nodes together to use them to render the frames faster, i already have a queing software, just don't know what i need to connect 'em all. Does any one know any websites that tell you step by step how to setup the hardware for such a farm? or does anyone know how to do this themselves.

We are running ATA for a month in now in our production domain. Now it starts reporting various "Suspicion of identity theft based on abnormal behavior" activities on the ATA Attack Timeline and most of these activities involve servers in our RDS
farm (the specified user didn't log on to that RDS server before). This means these actions are false positives in our case.
For the time being I configured the "short term lease" subnet option for these servers, is this the way to go or is  there a better way to handle this?

Here is a very interesting article titled "How a Gold Farm Works" and it's
gonna be very long.
Here is a most informative post in the thread:

-----BEGIN QUOTE-----
I guess I should mention, as I failed to in my last post, that I have been in
the process of dismantling my "business" since Christmas. You may wonder why I
do not just fold it up completely and immediately, but that lies in needing to
make sure that those I am responsible for, are taken care of. I expect to be
completely done within the month.

This is going to be long, but I'd like to explain what my business essentially
was, and my views on things in general and why what is currently going on is
quite serious for EQ. Not just for the plat sellers like I was, or just those
who rely on bazaar gears and trading to equip their character, but also those
at the raiding level. While it certainly impacts raiders the least, it does

I started selling about 7 years ago. I started on my home server, amongst a
few other sellers. At the time EQ was EQ, no expansions, fairly new, and you
could sell 1,000 platinum for $500. I got into selling because of a GM at the
time who I spoke to on occasion who was selling platinum and other items from
places like mistmoore, guk, and solusek b. This was at a time a GM was an
unpaid volunteer player, and the kinks hadn't been worked out as far as the
EULA which forbid the buying and selling of intellectual property.

I think this is different than the "should i air or watercool" thread, so I'll try to be as concise as possible, as I've found little to no info on this while googling.

For school, I'm about to submit a project proposal to the faculty for a render farm: The system itself will be 8-15 lower-end PC's linked together to a main computer to perform rendering operations for the art students. Render farms can get hot... the ambient heat caused by close to a dozen PC's can sometimes raise the operating temperatures to dangerous levels, especially on a system like this that will probably be utilized often by the hundreds of modelers at this school.

So, instead of individually-cooled systems which would possibly become a hassle in and of itself, I came up with the idea of placing all the systems into a fridge to keep the temps down. The thing I'm worried about most is the moisture in the air in normal residential refrigerators that could cause some very bad and very obvious problems. Unfortunately, most commercial applications either lack the storage space, are way too big, and they all cost more than a used car.

If anyone might have any ideas or suggestions for this project idea of mine, I'd be extremely grateful. Thank you.

A:Render farm dry cooling project

Hello! Welcome to TechSpot

Look into the server farms that are still out there/here.
Some have built a walkin cooler of sorts, basically using one or two units torn out of refrigerators.

Even a window mount ac would work for this in a wood framed and plexi glass or spare closet.
You'd still want to load each machine with a good fan systems, or strip them all the way down to bare.
No sheet metal sides, kinda like mini rack mount expossing
all componants but have a central network drive.
Exhausting the heat from the building may prove difficult.

I would like to know how to use the windows computer to be the server in a render farm, and the Ubuntu servers to be slave nodes. From what I've read, the software's I've seen are for rendering one frame at a time, but I'm need to have it constantly rendering live video and saving it onto a hard drive. I would like to know the best software's to use, and links to tutorial videos would be appreciated. Keep in mind, Windows main with Ubuntu nodes.

I built my own pc, and have been running the current setup for a few months now. I dont overclock or anything.

Last night I ran NAV full system scan since i hadnt done it in a while, then went to take a shower. When i came back, the PC was locked-up, but i could see on the locked-up screen NAV found 3 viruses but only completed 17% of the scan. I was forced to pull the ac plug to turn it off since cold booting it wouldn't function or even the power button. After i plugged it back in and turned it on, the PC wouldnt post at all. I could see the mb light on, and all the fans in the pc were running (cpu fan, ps fan, case fans, video card fan, etc), but the monitor wasnt even getting a signal and it wouldnt post.

Here's what i tried so far:
> I have two ram sticks. I swapped them out and tried booting with just one stick, trying both by themselves
>I substituted in a different video card. Still didnt post.
>I tried adding a little thermal paste to my cpu since it didnt look like it had enough. still no post.

My guess is that either my CPU or my motherboard went bad. Correct me if I'm wrong, but even if my pc had a detrimental virus, it would still at least "post" since the pc doesnt even notice the HDD until after it finds it in the initial posting information which comes after the cpu and ram count. I'm thinking that was just a concidence.

I have tried everything I can can think of to illiminate this freeze-up problem when using sym farm (which isn't much being an ill informed computer user wanna be).

I checked the game's notes and consequently tried to temporarily disable my virus protection to see if that would work.

Do I have to uninstall my virus protection in order to run this thing? If not, how does one properly disable a virus program. It seems to thread in and out of everything on my hard drive.

I also am running Norton Utilities. Do I have to disable this program as well?

We also have Sym Ant which works well on this configeration.

I have a "genuine Intel" 166 MHz chip, with 32 MB RAM. I am currently also using Windows 95.

I'd appreciate any feedback as I'm really at a loss as to why we can't use this game.

Thanks for your suggestions.

A:Sym Farm freezes up when I try to sell things

Do you use Norton anti-virus? Press ctrl + alt + del and when the screen pops up you'll have a list of programs running. Norton will be called something like Navapw32 on the list. Click once on it then click end task to disable it. You can do that for all other programs except Explorer and Systray. That'll free up memory. See if that helps.

It's possible that you may not have enough RAM memory to run that game. How much RAM does that game require? It will say on the box if you have the box.

So i am going to be getting 9 (yes 9) 1.88ghz single core 2gb ram, 80gb hdd servers in rack mount style. Im getting these for free or dirt cheap.
So i have a few ideas of what i want to use them for, But not really how, But here are my ideas so far:

1. Web Server, but have the load balanced across the machines.

2. Server raid array, so like using multiple servers with multiple HDDs each and having them doing backups and backing each other up

3. I am going to be getting into some security research stuff and there are some scripts i want to write to calculate stuff for me, Like rainbow tables and whatnot. So i thought well with all these machines i could speed stuff up, plus get it off my main computer.

Thats all the ideas i have come up with so far, Their all things i have been wanting to do, but never got around to doing. Only problem is that i have no bloody idea how to do any of it.

I do consider myself a very techy person (more end user stuff though less corporate networking etc...) so i am willing to take up a challenge and learn something new! I am 100% open to any ideas for what to use these machines for.

A:Multiple computer render, node, etc farm ideas?

It really depend on what you want to do. If you want the servers to process a lot of information faster I would consider settings up load balancing on them. How to do it will depend on what OS you decide to use. I would probably looking into Linux cluster. A lot of information is available on Google with a quick search.

A web server will only need load balancing if you have a lot of traffic coming in.

I am having an issue with offline files created offline syncing back to the server. I have set up a network share to be available offline on a client computer. All files are available offline without issue. Here is the issue however. If I set the folder to work offline any file I create in the folder when it is offline just disappears when the folder comes back online, there are no conflicts or sync failures reported in sync center. If I create a new folder offline the folder does sync back to the server. Any changes made to an existing file are also replicated back to the server once the share is back online. So the issue is only with newly created files when the share is offline. I have not been able to replicate this error on any other file server in our environment, However I have recreated the issue with multiple shares with multiple Win 7 clients on this file server.

Steps taken so far.

Checked and reset permission levels on the share.
Recreated new shares from scratch for testing.
Disabled and enabled offline files on the client computer and cleared the offline cache.
Check various registry entry settings.
Disabled cashing on the File server.
Tested with XP the issue does not exist with XP.

I have spent hours researching this error online to no avail.

The clients are running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit
The File server is Server 2003 Standard 32 bit with SP2

Any help or ideas would be most welcome.

I've seen the complaints about this problem but with no clear resolution. There are some hot fixes listed that may help, updating to Windows 7 SP1 is supposed to help in some cases but nothing seems for certain.

Emergency Management Services is a new feature in Microsoft Windows Server 2003 that supports remote management and system recovery for servers that are not accessible through a conventional connection. By using Emergency Management Services with other software and hardware components, you can remotely perform tasks such as recovering unresponsive servers and powering servers off and on, even when they are not accessible through a standard network connection. Emergency management services also supports headless servers—those without a local keyboard, monitor, or mouse. This document provides an overview of Emergency Management Services and its components. It explains how to choose and configure hardware and software that supports Emergency Management Services. It provides guidance for enabling Emergency Management Services, and information about using this technology to troubleshoot problems with remote servers.
System Requirements
Supported Operating Systems: Windows Server 2003

Only servers running a Windows Server 2003 operating system can be monitored using Emergency Management Services. For additional hardware and software requirements, please consult the chapter.

The following Structure is a representation;
SRV1 - IP - FQDN SRV1.DOM.LOCAL - File Share 'FLDR1' / USR1<ReadOnly>

SRV1 has a folder, FLDR1, being shared for read only access to user USR1.

PC1 and PC2 logged on as Domain User USR1.
PC1 is able to connect to SRV1 to see and look in FLDR1.
PC2 is unable to connect to SRV1 to see and look in FLDR1.
Now there are multiple means of connecting to SRV1 to see the share FLDR1.

The following connections were done in combination with the following methods;
Method 1 - via logged on Domain User CMD Prompt with 'NET VIEW'.
Method 2 - via logged on Domain Administrator CMD Prompt with 'NET VIEW'.
Method 3 - via logged on Domain User Explorer Window.
Method 4 - via logged on Domain Administrator Explorer Window.

Connection 1 - via Server Name.
Connection 2 - via Server IP Address.
Connection 3 - via Server Fully Qualified Domain Name.

Now that the stage is set, going to the fun part...

Testing from both PC1 and PC2...
PC1 : Method 1 - Connection 1 - Success
PC1 : Method 1 - Connection 2 - Success
PC1 : Method 1 - Connection 3 - Success
PC1 : Method 2 - Connection 1 - Success

Microsoft Content Management Server (MCMS) 2001 is a .Net Enterprise
Server product that simplifies developing and managing e-business
web sites. Microsoft has learned of three security vulnerabilities
affecting it:

- A buffer overrun in a low-level function that performs user
authentication. At least one web page included with MCMS 2001
passes inputs directly to the function, thereby potentially
providing a way for an attacker to overrun the buffer. The
result of exploiting the vulnerability would be to either
cause MCMS to fail, or run code in the context of the MCMS
service (which runs as Local System).

- A vulnerability resulting from the confluence of two flaws
affecting a function that allows files to be uploaded to the
server. The first flaw lies in how the function authenticates
requests, and would allow any user to submit an upload request.
The second results because it is possible to override the upload
location; where the function should upload files to a folder that
only privileged users can access, it can be overridden to upload
it to a temporary folder that does allow unprivileged users to
call it. By exploiting the two flaws in tandem, an attacker
could upload an .ASP or other file to the server, in a location
from which it could be executed.

- A SQL injection vulnerability affecting a function that services
requests for image files and other resources. Exploiting the
vulnerability could enable an attacker to run SQL commands on the
server, which wou... Read more

I don't know if this is help for our server or Excel I am looking for. Here is the issue...

Whenever one lady is logged into a session on our server, she opens a word document that has an Excel worksheet embedded in it. The second she tries to click on the Excel worksheet, Dr. Watson makes a call and hits me with the following message...

Error in Excel.exe
Access Violation (0xC0000005), Address: 0x304632a3

When she tries to just open the Excel program, she gets this error:

Compile Error in Hidden Module: ThisWorkBook

This only happens to her, should I make a new profile on the server for her? Is there something in Excel I can do? I am so lost and MS Knowledge base has been of no help to me.

There is a process running on my computer called csrss.exe
I went to http://www.processlibrary.com and looked it up and came up with 2 different things. One says it is a Trojan and needs to be removed. The same exact process name also says it is Microsoft client server runtime server and SHOULD NOT be removed.
How I am supposed to tell the difference so I do not make a mistake by either leaving it alone or removing it???

Currently we are on an NT network with a few 2000 servers tossed in. Today I learned that the plan is to migrate everything to Linux. Lets assume that this only applies to the servers and that the users will still operate with 98/nt/2000/xp. What are your thoughts on this?

I put this in this forum for a reason. Because I'd rather get the advice from 2000 and 2003 experts who know what Linux cannot replace than to hear the Linux fanboys and anti-Microsoft activists praise it to the high heavens.

What would your concerns be if this was done on your network? What problems have you encountered if you'd tried this? Or what successes? Know of any businesses that have done this successfully?

Can anyone help me with setting up this network layout with my Pix Firewall.
Network Layout : Pix > DMZ > ISA Server 2004 > Exchange Server 2003 + Users.

Pix outside IP Address :
Pix inside IP Address :
DMZ IP Addresss :
ISA Server outside IP :
ISA Server inside IP :

I've identified the interfaces IP Address and named all plus the following config:

global (outside) 1 interface

nat (inside) 1 0 0

nat (dmz) 1 0 0

conduit permit icmp any any

route outside 1

I can now access the internet from my ISA Server in the DMZ zone.
I am intending to put the ISA Server out on the DMZ to access the outside world with

static (dmz,outside) netmask 0 0

and then open all traffic to ISA with

access-list acl_out permit ip any host any
access-group acl_out in interface outside

then I’ll give ISA server access to the inside network with

access-list acl_dmz permit tcp eq 25
access-group acl_dmz in interface dmz

With the above commands, the first access-list acl_out was not accepted by pix plus the second access-list acl_dmz so if you could please share some light upon my configurations.


A:Setting up Pix 515E in front of ISA Server 2004 and Exchange Server 2003

Here, I scrapped your config. NAT bad/static bad/conduit bad/access-list bad.

no fixup protocol smtp

nameif int xxx inside security 100
nameif int xxx dmz security 80

global (outside) 1 int
nat (inside) 1 32768 16483
route outside 1
static (inside,dmz)
static (dmz,outside) netmask << Can't have same IP as interface**
access-list internet permit tcp any host eq 80
access-list internet permit tcp any host eq 443
access-list internet permit tcp any host eq 25
access-list internet permit icmp any any eq echo
access-list internet permit icmp any any eq echo-reply
access-list internet permit icmp any any eq unreachable
access-list internet permit icmp any any eq source-quench
access-group internet in interface outside
access-list dmz permit ip host any << *Read note 1
access-group dmz in interface dmz
access-list inside permit ip any any
access-group inside in interface inside

The above config will nat to You can't static NAT an entire IP to the same as a global (your interface). You can only do this if you NAT specific ports.

The above config will allow internet to reach via TCP 80/443/25. I can only assume y... Read more

Hello Guys,

Is there a way via scipting to force a pc to refresh their local printer
settings from the print server ? We have enabled Duplexing as the default for
printing ( conserve that paper ! ) for our HP Laserjet printers on the
Print Server, but if a user goes on their local printer settings and unchecks
duplexing, it will not re-pull that device setting from the print server
unless you delete and then re-add the printer on the local machine. Is there
a way to have the printer settings pulled from the server without have to
delete and then readd the locally installed network printer ?
