Hmm, strange. I have both DL 360 and 380 G5's (and blade-servers) with
64, 256 and 512 MB ciss-controllers, either as webservers or as
db-server and all are working flawlessly with the amd64. The db-server
is running 7.0 release and the webservers are running a 7.1 beta-2

How old is the server in question? Maby you need to update the bios?


When lenity and cruelty play for a kingdom,
the gentler gamester is the soonest winner.
