Getting older, not necessarily wiser!
For this next segment, using actual hardware, I went ahead and created a video. The main purpose is to highlight my methodology when I start working with real hardware.
Up to this point, this project has been done on virtual machines. which is quite a thing, as I remember back when this was not even possible for the home user. But alas, virtualization, in spite of how far it has come, is not like real hardware. It is pretty close on Type One Hypervisors, but Type two is not a perfect experience.
So watch the video, and get some insight into how we can make a server out of junk box parts.
This has been an overview of my parts selection for this server. It is important to remember that up to this point I have spent nothing, as all the parts where either donated or left over from previous builds.
In the next post I will take up after getting everything assembled, and the Debian 12 (bookworm) operating system installed along with openssh for headless remote access. Not sure yet what form it will be taking at this point.
