Switching to another system to use as music server! Making the switch due to the fact that the two new servers I was going to make into web servers have 32 bit Xeon CPU’s and the current music server has 64 bit CPU’s.
This way I didn’t have to waste the 64 bit Xeon current music server on 32 bit Windows OS and I could move it to a 64 bit OS Linux platform as a web server which I am working on being a web server with stronger live multimedia streaming capabilities.
Now I can use the two systems I was configuring into web servers into my music server and backup music server fully optimizing the Windows 32 bit OS I’m using.
I’m also thinking of moving my former long running music server I moved out of service a couple of weeks ago into the role of another web server or backup web server role.
I also dug around town and found another set of rails so I could properly mount one of the new music servers the way I wanted to and added a gigabit NIC to each system to work with the onboard gigabit NIC and disable the 10/100 bit NIC onboard. I also added a soundcard to each for music preview and allowing of other input devices like microphone’s etc. Then with configuring the systems to talk to my web server, firewall, databases, etc.., I’m ready to switch over to the new music server, again!
I also introduced another music stream at a higher bit rate for you audiophiles out there @ 320kbs and will place a link on my web page at some point soon along with some new listener links and the current link reconfigured.
I will be redoing the whole site on the new web site which is my former music server I just moved off of today soon.
Ok time o switch over to the new system!
