    Rob, thanxs for the R710 indorsement, I'm in the process of expanding my IT infrastructure e.g. updated my unmanaged switches and router to Unifi equipment USG-4Pro, 3 managed switches with 3 AP Pros) which works great and thought that I would focus on a possible inclusion of a rack mounted server for HomeSeer and Blue Iris app servers not totally understanding the Pro/Con from my current physical mini-computers.

      It is a 1U rack mount Supermicro SYS-5018D-MF with a Xeon E3-1230 v3, Samsung SSD and 16GB RAM. Running Windows 10 pro. It is headless with IPMI. Windows is automatically logged in, with HS launched by Startup Delayer. I had an SSD fail a couple of months ago, otherwise 100% uptime since 2015.

      It is imaged nightly using Macirum Reflect. When the SSD failed it took just over an hour to replace the drive, reimage from the backup and return to operation.

        Thanxs Randy for taking the time and explaining I value your input as you've already trotted this ground and have lessons learnt to share. By the way love your SONOs solution still works like a champ once one gets their head around the concept, Mike

          I am still using the same script and it is working very well here also. Glad to hear it is working for you.

          I have added a couple of the new Connect Amps and it was a quick edit of the script to change the UIDs having everything work with the new ones.

            Thanxs, side note re you SONO speaks and unifi; are you using all speakers wired or wireless, or are you using a single wired (master) and all the rest wireless. The reason I'm asking is that if I have more than one Speaker or Boost wired (LAN connect) I get "STP Blocked" messages on the applicable Switch Panel associated with SONO device. Mike
