server design
Server design

Significant issues:

  • Stability
  • Availability
  • Performance
design decision
Design decision
  • The most significant design decision to make when managing a server configuration is not technical, but administrative.
  • The server designed should have a good environment.
design decision7
Design decision

Server design should not be user friendly:

  • No multimedia tools.
  • No sound card support.
  • No distracting web browsers.
physical safety of servers
Physical safety of servers
  • Keep servers in a separate, physically secure room.
  • Restrict server access for non-administrative personnel only through the Network.
  • Install a battery backup.
improve server situation
Improve server situation
  • Avoid starting X Window until required.
  • Determine what functions you want the server to perform and disable the other functions.
  • Linux allows tailoring of the kernel.
uptime
Uptime

Uptime command provides:

  • Duration of the system since its last boot.
  • Number of users currently logged in.
  • Load the system is experiencing.
dual booting issues
Dual-Booting issues
  • Windows 95 or Windows 98 – use the fips.exe.
  • Windows NT – move some of the data around manually to free a partition.
dual booting issues12
Dual-Booting issues
  • To repartition a system that has already had Windows 9x/NT installed onto it –use third party software like “Partition Magic”.
