Hi All, 

I've got a HP DL360 G5 with dual quad core Xeons (5450's from memory)
and 32GB of Reg ECC RAM Jackson can have if someone wants to pay the

I am in Perth. 

The machine is a 1RU server with dual hotswap PSU's and a battery-backed
cached RAID controller. Has dual gig-e ethernet and an ILO Advanced
license on it. 

It needs 1 or more 2.5" SAS drives as it has no hard drives in it at the

It is a retired VMware host server. 

If it's no good for Jackson, I am happy to donate it to any other good
