  1. It’s nice overall to see the people at Dell that develop, test and impliment the systems we all use.  It would have been nicer to hear about how Eric and Jimmy go about their day, how they influence the designs that end up in the products they were presenting, and their own experiences with the products.,. instead of getting another wrote sales pitch.  

    Focus on the technologies Dell is using isn’t a bad thing, unless it’s presented as a sales pitch.  I found the quick release latch and the hotplug fans and power supplies of interest, as well as the remote system name change capability. But, that information and this video should be accessible to me on the product information page for these Poweredge servers.

    Mentioning on this blog that you have a video such as this and asking for feedback on it would be great, if the sales pitch in the video content wasn’t the primary focus of your blog post, which this obviously was.

    By the way guys, nice presentation. And, thanks for not dressing up for us.  That’s not sarcasm.

  2. The video won’t download…  I try to "save link as", but it only gives me a 1KB wvx file…  I am looking to download the .wmv file and play it on my ipaq.

    Just thought you might want to know.

    Thanks.

  3. I wish you’d stop calling post with embedded video "vlogs." The terminology is evolving fast, to be sure, but a vlog is a portmanteau of "video log," essentially a video version of a blog. Rocketboom, for instance, is a blog. This blog is a hybrid, with a variety of both static and video content, but it’s still a blog that you post on. Posts can include video, audio, text or a combination of the three.

    Aside from that, this was an interesting post!

  4. Greg: Try playing the file in WMP and ‘Save As’ .WMV.  A fix is in the works to make downloads easier.  Thanks.

  5. I was just getting ready to purchase one of the new PowerEdge 2950, when I noticed something upsetting.  You have removed the PS2 ports which I need to connect to my existing KVM.  Not only did you do that, but you limited the number of USB ports on the back of the server to 2…we have some USB license keys for network programs…where am I supposed to put them if I need to use the 2 USB ports in the back for keyboard and mouse connections?  You can’t really expect me to use the 2 USB ports on the front…that would mean I would need to leave the bezel off all the time, thus defeating the security you added by making the bezels metal.

    Just when you make a good decision in on area, you go a mess it up by making a COMPLETELY STUPID decision in another area.  You would think that if you removed the PS2 ports that is something that you would note on the details of the server on your web site…guess you don’t think smooth integration in to the existing server room an important thing.

  6. Just got a 2950 delivered and extremely disapointed to find no PS2 ports! How the heck do I connect this to my kvm? Nice unit, but ridiculous removing the ps2 ports.

  7. If you need additional USB ports by a compatiable USB PCI Card.  Oh and did you check the tech specs or server specs before purchasing the server?

  8. My company uses HP and Sun AMD systems running Red Hat Enterprise 3.0.  We are considering buying some 1950’s to add to our compute farm.  We use engineering software developing tools on these systems.  Do you know of any problems or differences between the AMD and Intel hardware with respect to the OS that would cause problems?  Can we compile software on the AMD systems and run the resulting binaries on the Intels?

     Thanks,

     Tim

  9. POr favor necesito saber como poder corregir el inconveniente que tengo respecto al TECLADO DE MI COMPUTADORA LAP TOP LATITUDE D 820 QUE ESTA EN INGLES Y REQUIERO CON URGNECIA QUE ESTE EN ESPAÑOL ,COMO PODER CAMBIARLO .LO HE MODIFICADO POR SISTEMA PERO LAMENTABLEMENTE LAS TECLAS NO COINCIDEN CON LO QUE INDICAN, ADEMAS NO TIENE NI LA Ñ NI TAMPOCO LOS ACENTOS Y ME ES MUY INCOMODO.

    INDIQUENME POR FAVOR COMO PODER CAMBIAR EL TECLADO EN ESPAÑOL Y CUANTO CUESTA EN US$.

    DE ANTEMANO MUCHAS GRACIAS.

  10. Without PS2 ports the server does not meet the recommendations of JITC, Joint Interoperability Test Command. The JITC recommendation is that all USB ports be locked down for security. A USB to PS2 adapter is then useless. There is no way to operate the server. Dell tells me that their servers are fully compliant with federal requirements. A recommendation today is a requirement tomorrow. How will you deal with this, Dell?

  11. On rear USB ports issue.  I checked the specs and even confirmed with my sales guy on the phone and in writing that there were 4 USB2 ports on the back of the machine.  When it arrived there were only 2.  Sales guy was as puzzled as me and it turns out this is an error on several DELL server specs.  Can't believe they haven't changed this!  Why should I reduce functionality or expandibility on my machine by using add ons?  Otherwise very impressed with DELL service and delivery etc.

  12. Andrea's link is broken in regards to the USB to PS/2 adapter. We have tried 3 different brands of adapters and none work with our KVM.  Can anyone suggest one that they KNOW works well with KVM's (Ours is a ATEN CS-1016.
