Server with external HDD

The Maximum internal storage for a G2 is 880.8 GB (6 x 146.8 GB Ultra320 1") so that's quite a bit more than you thought, Not sure about the USB 3.0 since the HP only has USB 1.1 and it's a PIII 1.4 GHz processor which will be your bottle neck in the end.
You can definitely give it a try, but I would suggest to look at ebay where you often can find a newer model for very little money and often they are stacked with hard drives already.

The PCI slots are only 64-bit, so don't expect a miracle, even with USB 3.0

IBM x3400 server hanging / chipset & processor heating, but cooling fans are working properly.

Make sure that the fans are working at proper speed (not stuck or slow).
Secondly, heat sink could be clogged due to dust or not properly seated. Clean it if required. You may remove it, clean its fins and replace it back (for both processors if required) . Don't forget to apply THERMAL PASTE between the heat sink and the processor (If you remove the heat sink). The Thermal paste conduct the heat from the processor to heat sink which is then dissipated into air by the processor fan. You may also consider adding an additional fan, if required.
Also, place the PC at a well ventilated location so that the cool air enters it from the front and warm air leaves from the back.

I am using dell power edge 1800 sever recently power supply (SMPS) shock circuited, i contact dell server tech support they toled me to replace smps but right now this server smps not available, it will...


The only other place that I know of is eBay. Dell is very slow getting a replacement to you and eBay has increase its standards to prevent fraud and misrepresentation. I would check there. If you see one you like, you can email the seller if you have any questions.

Good Luck

I have seen similar questions asked but I couldn't find any that fit close enough to my situations. I have a PE 1800 that came without an operating system. I have some extra licenses for XP, XP Pro,...

The server is designed for linux SusE and Windows Server 2003+. You may be able to get windows XP working on it but you will not be able to install it until you find the scsi disk controller driver for XP or whatever type of controller your unit can installed with RAID etc... Also, some devices may not work as they weren't designed for XP. You can buy windows server 2003 off of ebay for a lot cheaper then you would if you did from a retail PC store, if that is an option for you.
Can I ask what game it is? I may be able to help you setup the game server on linux, but I recommend using SuSe as that is what Dell supports for this unit and the drivers can be obtained from

What type of nic to add

Cannot be PCIe, as they are not supported - PCI or PCI-X. Check the slots, you may only be able to use 3.3/5V cards.

And as a sidenote ... the PowerEdge 2600 does not support x64 Operating Systems and does not support hardware-assisted virtualization (VT on Intel processors), so you will be limited on which VM solutions you can use.

Adding DVD to Poweredge 2600

PE2600 has lots of spare power (unless you are already using all 6 SCSI drive bays) ..

You can fit 3 x SATA drives in the space where the (useless) tape backup unit is sitting [you can even buy a 'proper' enclosure = Icy Dock MB453SPF or I think the SNT-2131 will fit ] .. and you can split the power off the Tape drive (4pin) power socket ..

I've not found a DVD burner (only a combined DVD reader / CD burner = TS-L462C) .. however if you have a spare IDE port you should be able to use an external unit [you will need an e-ide cable & enclosure for the drive]

Adding a second processor to my 2600 server

I hope that you fixed your problem without troubles by now, but if you still have not, I can help. I added a second xeon processor to my Dell PowerEdge 2600 a couple of years ago.
Lay the server on its left side then loosen the three thumbscrews on the right front side and "slap" the cover off backwards.
You should have by now identified the current processor by running cpuid software that I think comes from Intel's website in order to buy an identical cpu. That was the hardest part, finding an identical one still for sale. If I remember the Poweredge 2600 could only use xeon processors with only up to 512 kb of cache or someother small amount and are not that available still new in the box.
You also have to get two identical voltage regulator modules (vrm). I was not able to get a second one for some reason and just bought two identical ones specifically for the xeon processors that I was using. Be sure to do your homework on this. MATCHING cpu's and MATCHING vrm's.
That's it. Each processor has two cores and you should see all four after you boot.
Another thing to think about would be setting the processor afinity to run your most intensive process to all four cores while only letting most applications to only use the first core.
I hope this helps if you haven't already had any success.

Two cpu's

The dummy voltage reg is just to complete the power loop, (as there is built in diags in the box) without the dummy the box will log errors against the empty volt reg slot. YES you do need the Voltage regulator for the 2nd slot if you intend to install a processor there.
