I’m following the forum, also a “serious” SNO since january 2020. So far, so good, amazingly I never had the problems listed by you, guys, although I am only running Win10 nodes without Docker. But this ain’t the point here. Having access to a Xeon server (after being thrown out from my company) with 32GB RAM and sufficient HDD slots, I am curious about your opinion on:
- Running an OS as “master”, and installing a VM for each HDD in the system
- Assigning one real IP to 2 nodes, is it worth it?
- Related to question 2, all available addresses are on the same /24 subnet. Isn’t it the same as using only one address?
I have opted for an eventual VM solution; given that the drives are not new, I have a chance of “catching” a failing one and only copy the VM files. Of course, RAID would be ideal, but I’m kind of scratching my head now, losing space for node or redundancy. I have 6 pcs of 4TB drives, what would you do? Also, available 6 IP addresses, on the same /24 subnet. Don’t know what would be the best.
