Title: Which OS are you running FlexRAID on?
Post by: m0t0k0 on December 14, 2011, 06:59:07 am

Just Curious which OS FlexRAID is being run on?

If I missed any out let me know

Linux users I know there are a huge number of Distros so if you want to list some or get me to add the one your using let me know.

Interesting choice of... erm choices.
No Vista, no Windows 2008 Server, no 2003 Server...

I think also the distinction between x86 and x64 is very important.

I don't think we have enough poll entries.

Ah Vista had conveniently forgotten that one

How are my entries now? Never been aware with the server editions of Windows do any of them come with a choice of 32 or 64 bit?

How to vote?

Had to lock the poll quickly as I moved the entries around. Should be ok now

I'd say they are mostly ok now.
2003 Srv was in x86 and x64 flavors and IIRC 2008 (R1) too.
XP x64 I'd say pretty rare (although I did have this once). x64 support sucked back then.
Linux (if different distros matter too much - I doubt) can have a separate poll. One entry enough in this poll.

You actually moved them around? Doesn't look you make a good job in that. :D No offence. No real logic in your shorting. But this is minor anyway.

I say W2k3 rules for ever!  ;D
All my "serious" envs are XP/W2k3 based. I have W2k3 VMs running on less than 80MB of RAM.
The Win7 line (specially W2k8) is too much of a resource hog if you care about VM density per box.

I tried to sort them but it seems I can move the entry name but not the vote. So I sorted them best I could keeping the exisiting votes where they were

OK all updated and moved around now
Had to reset poll count or it would of messed the figures up, So you need to vote again

This list may not be exhaustive but has a very wide scope, If you still don't feel represented then let me know before you vote and I will add an option for you
Title: Re: Which OS are you running FlexRAID on?

you could always dd an "other" options and then ask the member to post the OS they use as a reply.

For mods/admin/Brahim to get an idea of the general OS usage sorting through the replys for the exceptions will not be that hard, better than losing votes due to poll resets.

done
Title: Re: Which OS are you running FlexRAID on?
Post by: m0t0k0 on December 15, 2011, 02:50:47 am

I was thinking more along the lines that someone could ask for their OS to be added and then vote
Title: Re: Which OS are you running FlexRAID on?

Well we cannot have 30 choices there.

Can a mod make this a sticky so it don't get lost?

Running on WHS V1 (Almost 2003 Server!).  Just using Snapshot Raid for now. Once RT and expert mode get cleared, will be thinking about moving to WHS 2011.

2003 R2 Enterprise.
Title: Re: Which OS are you running FlexRAID on?
Post by: NLS on December 31, 2011, 02:47:03 am
2003 R2 Enterprise can easily fit 2003 Server.

Exactly same kernel build (also WHS v1 - but this needs separate mention because of all the other major differences).

Voted Linux, but to be more specific -> Running it on Linux Mint 12 "Lisa" 64 bit.
Title: Re: Which OS are you running FlexRAID on?

Also voted Linux, specifically Ubuntu Server 10.04 i386.

How are you getting W2k3 running in only 80meg?

I now have Flexraid installed on my Linux Mint 12 Fileserver and also on my Mailserver that runs on Windows Server 2008 R2.

Moved from Slackware (unRAID) to unRAID in ESXi with RAW device mapping (along with Plex and the downloading apps in a Ubuntu VM) to FlexRAID with RAW device mapping on Windows 2008, not a great upgrade path I would advise anyone, I assure you.  :-X
No offense but Linux Slackware is *dead* and to be running Plex, SABnzb, Transmission, Couchpotato, Sickbeard, Spotweb, Crashplan etc, etc and of course file serving of 15 drives while keeping 3 servers up-to-date is a pain.
So back to the drawing board: Windows server 2008 R2 bare metal it is. Great to have a real OS again, with direct hardware access and no more apt-get'ing, installpkg'ing or editing text files to getting anything done.

Now where was I..... ah yes installing Windows updates, time for another reboot...ARGH ;)

If you can edit the poll you probably should add Windows 8 now. I've been running it on Win8 for a while now without issue.
Title: Re: Which OS are you running FlexRAID on?
Post by: m0t0k0 on September 11, 2012, 01:48:03 am

Ok poll updated.

I thought there was a problem with W8 of copying files out of the pool?

Windows Server 2012 Data Center and 2012 Standard - both working

I was running on Windows 2012 but switched to Windows 2008 , and now I'm happy :)

I've had Windows 2012 reboot on me a couple of times due to weird errors, and I've had no reboot with Windows 2008 yet.

Windows Server 2012 Standard. Don't think I'll update to Windows Server 2012 R2 since I can't see any features that'll be useful to me.

Any updates to this poll?
Could the results be reset so a more current sample be displayed?

So far no issues on 2012R2

Can someone tell me why a post asking where the promised-byBrahim-2-years-ago Mac version is got deleted? I'd like to run FlexRAID on Mac!

No option for Win 10.. presumably cos FR doesnt work on W10 right now  :(

Or possibly the fact that the survey was started 4 years ago and the list of OS's last updated 3 years ago?
