Newb to Linux. Need assistance with backup server share
I'm a newb to Linux, please be gentle. I am old fogey when it comes to DOS and Windows environment and prefer a command line interface to a GUI any day.
My objective is to create a share, visible to all systems on the network, 6 in total, with at least 8 Tb storage space, expandable to 16 or so using 2 TB HDDs.
All systems on the network are gigabit LAN, no wireless allowed. All systems have static IP addresses and are running XP Pro SP3. The local systems will be running the XP backup utility and storing the images on the backup server.
SuperMicro P3TDLE dual processor board
PIII @ 1.16 GHZ
1 GB Memory
SuperMicro AOC-SAT2-MV8 8 port SATA II PCI64 controller
Intel Pro 1000 XT PCI64 gigabit NIC
Fedora 16, installed on a 300 GB hdd running static IP address.
That is where I am right now. What is my next step?
