    What O/S Do you run on your server?

    Howdy.

    Well i was doing a clean re-install on a server for a client, and i started to think of all the different Os choices that are usable for a server environment, so basically i am just curious as to what Os members of AntiOnline use on there server's.?

    and why you use that Os, be it security, ease of use, or just favourite Os..

    I also ask please no Os bashing, i just was curious and want to keep this a NO Os bashing event.

    cheers
    kris.!

    You also left Solaris off the list...I still see quite a bit of that around...especially in combination with Oracle...

    Would have preferred to see multiple choice, have a little of everything out there since servers are meant to basically serve/run applications so in many cases the application dictates the OS, not the other way around...
    There is only one constant, one universal, it is the only real truth: causality. Action. Reaction. Cause and effect...There is no escape from it, we are forever slaves to it. Our only hope, our only peace is to understand it, to understand the 'why'. 'Why' is what separates us from them, you from me. 'Why' is the only real social power, without it you are powerless.

    Windows 2003 Server + SP1 ... AD Domain .... Online and serving for 31 consecutive days and counting (though I'll need to reboot for an update soon) ... I run it because Microsoft is the main OS I support at work ... So I always can fall back on my home network to check something.

    My set up wasn't listed:

    FTP, SSH, and Mail all running on SUSE.

    Web and FTP servers running on a mix o Slackware and FreeBSD.

    I have SSH set up on most boxes so I can log in no matter where I am, and I have FTP set up on 3 or 4 of my machines. Even my laptop has an FTP server. Works well if you're doign some security testing and you need to get a tool on a server.

    So my Laptop has an FTP service running so I can grab things from it from another machine.

    My main FTP server has SSH running too.

    Then another box here runs FTP, SSH and my email system.

    Another runs FTP and Apache which dual boots FreeBSD and Slackware 10.2.

    This box has SSH, and does have other servers but I don't run them unless I need them.

    (2) Windows 2003 R2 Servers
    I love the DFS Management Snap-In. Makes it easy to replicate files on multiple servers and create virtual domain shares. Not to mention, if you know 2K, you'll be quite comfortable with 2003 R2.
