Am about to move to a two-machine deployment of FMS 13.0.10, having acquired a second X-Serve. However, although both have the same CPU, one has 12GB RAM and one 24GB. Also, the bigger one has 3x 15000rpm SAS drives, whereas the smaller one has the more usual 3x 1TB SATA drives, (RAID5 in both cases) My plan was to utilise the new smaller one as the WebDirect Server (as not all my hosted solutions use WebDirect). But am wondering if this is the best way around.
Am just setting up new X-Serve as a dedicated Filemaker Server. It has a flash drive with the OS on it, and a 3x1TB RAID5 set, which I'm just formatting/striping. Now, I have to decide how to use the RAID set. My first thought was to mount it somewhere like /Library/FileMaker Server/ but I'd be interested in any other comments. Also, not sure if Mac OS X mounts volumes in quite the same way a Linux, perhaps a symbolic link is the way to go, something like (as root): mkdir /Volumes/Macintosh RAID/FileMaker Server ln -s /Volumes/Macintosh RAID/FileMaker Server /Library The essence is to keep frequently changing files off the main drive which is an SSD.
