I've been working on one of two storage servers for the past two weeks. Its a hard disk based server in a 2U rack mount case. Hardware wise its all working, but the software is causing problems. I can't get ZFS installed on it. It fails to build. I've tried different Debian releases and all of them seem to be broken. I bought this one almost a year ago. It was intended to replace my current (tower case) server which has less drive bays, thus limited scope for expansion.

I mentioned two storage servers. The other one is a NVMe based one in a 1U rack mount case. Apart from the fans being really loud and annoying its hardware also works fine. It too needs to run ZFS so I have been trying to get the quieter one going first.

I have updated the Intel GPU machines to Debian Buster. Unfortunately Buster locks up on the Nvidia GPU machines and won't even give a logon prompt. Time to raise another bug with Debian.
