Long story short, a friend had one of these, he does IT consulting and he had it sitting in his basement..   I asked him about it and while he didn't "give" it to me, I have had it for 2 years now.. and he hasn't really asked for it back...

 

What can I do with this piece of hardware?  HP Proliant DL320 G2

This is a very old server.  This is before the 48-bit LBA was introduced, this means that the largest hdd you can install is 137GB.  By today's standards the speed of the CPU and RAM makes this a very slow device.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

no idea what this LBA stuff is..

 

So in other words this is WORTHLESS?   Just throw it away or what?

 

No.. I refuse to believe that..

 

There has to be some use I can put this to.. some way I can learn from this..  I want a HIGH paying job in IT and I see this old derilect server as a stepping stone towards that!

 

HELP ME OUT Brah!

very well then..  tho I had.. all it told me was that it was a server.. one that businesses used..  but I am trying to figure out what a lowly NON-CompTIA A+ certified computer user like myself do with this?

 

there has to be something I can do with this...
