Mounts /away from Nortel and then exports to other machines (for Samba)
Exports backups and mp3s storage from the SAN

"Not sure if this is still correct..." It's a DELL Poweredge 4600, with a DRAC, 5RU tall. It has several 146GB SCSI U320 Drives and 2x Xeon 3.2Ghz CPU's
Future plans for the machine
Mylah was donated to the club in late 2009 by [FEL] (Mitch Kelly)
This machine requently eats SCSI disks. If a disk has recorded too many errors, it will continue to work until the machine reboots, and then the machine will refuse to progress in the POST until the disk is replaced. For this reason, disks with errors should be replaced as soon as possible (or just upgrade the entire machine).
