I've got directory server, messaging (mail) , and .. webserver installed. I can use the webserver ok, but the mail server is a pain in the ass to administer. I'm having problems getting the sun console to run correctly and i didn't install the command line admin server shit. That means i need to reinstall with the command line service or say fuck it and just drop freebsd on it. At the moment i'm leaning toward the bsd install. Why? I know it. It would allow me to work on sparc 64 ports of midnight bsd, i have an 80gb disk now so everything but tomcat and et can run on it. (everything but) I'd like to run it by caryn, but it makes more sense to me. The sun webserver would have been nice, but what i really wanted was the mail server to be EASIER to administer. I don't think i'm going to get that. The webserver has a gui and its easier to deploy wars.. but it doesn't do anything that tomcat can't do. The next question is if i run fbsd on this box, what do i do with the dell server. I have windows on there and it oculd technically host et and tomcat. Arguably i could run the sun app server on it too. I could also drop linux on it but if i'm going to run bsd on the sparc, mabye i should do it on both. i'll have to think about it some more.
Its been nice using solaris though. I love how integrated it is. The polish is missing in bsd.
