Typically, my Linux servers will just die. Memory, hard drive, motherboard, etc. Something just stops working. Then I rush out, buy a new something and fix it. But my current server has been slowly dying. One ethernet adapter requires me to rebind it to the switch after the driver loads. No idea why. The power supply fan won’t spin up on its own. I have to start it going so the system won’t get too hot and die. And the network adapters cause the machine to hard lock when I transfer files to or from the machine with Samba. That’s not even rational!
So, I think I’m going to have to pull the plug soon and build a new system. Even before this one is totally dead. The little issues are starting to add up.
