I have an x86_64 11.1 server configured with no problems whatsoever with
apache2 with SSL, BIND 9 DNS, dhcpd providing dynamic updates via TSIGs to
BIND, samba providing shares, and pptpd VPN working just fine. The core
packages seem OK. It just sucks when I have to look at the screen ;-)

What about soft RAID 1 (mirror) ? I do need it because in my
experience HD failure happens.. RAID 1 and backup every night really
helpful.. And what filesystem that recommend for server ? XFS or stick
with ext3 ?

Thanks for helps guys..

RAID1 works fine (Although, yast installer did screw up the grub/menu.lst so
the machine wouldn't boot. See:

I have used 'software md' raid and 'bios dm' raid without any issues since
10.2. Currently I have 6 servers (10.3-11.0) running raid1 arrays without a
single issue.
