I have found the HP Proliant Microservers (N40L and N54L)  run very nicely with SME 9.0
Cheap, too.
Capacity for 4 HDD. I have one 2 HDD RAID 1 and one 4HDD RAID5. Both have 4Gb RAM

Cheers  :smile:

I am searching for a good machine to install SME Server 8.1
......find a machine that will allow me to upgrade to SME 9 later?

You should start using SME9.0 immediately rather than playing qround with sme8.1.

SME9.0 final was released on 30 June 2014 & is using CentOS 6.5 which is a better platform to use
http://wiki.contribs.org/SME_Server:9.0

...and as Charlie says, your minimal configuration should be a 2 disk software RAID1 array (software RAID1 as provided by SME server)

Hello,

I used vmware workstation 10 on my HP pavilion dv6 6150sl to install SME 9 and every thing was OK, I installed configured and connected to internet, now I can access my virtual server remotely from my local network.
Virtual machine parameters are:

HDD: Raid 1 20G
CPU: 2 processors, 2 cores for each
Network adapter: bridge
RAM: 2G

I want to thank you all for you suggestions and replays!

I need some help with DDNS since I have dynamic IP address but for this I am going to make another post on SME 9 forum.

I wish luck for all of you!
