The combo deal adds two 12-core Opterons and 1 1 TB HD. I added 3 more 1TB HDs and replaced the combo RAM with 64GB.
XenServer 5.6 installed with no issues and recognized all 24 cores.
The server comes pre wired for RAID but does not include a RAID controller. You have to remove all the blue RAID cables and then add SATA cables (which are not included). The backplane is already wired for power so no separate power cables required for the SATA drives.
There is no manual or documentation included with the system but the manual can be downloaded from the SuperMicro site.
It would be nice if Newegg mentioned the need for either a RAID controller or additional SATA cables to get the system to work. Also, the RAID controller must be one that will work with the riser card included in the server.
