Yeah, the casters fit straight into holes drilled directly into the upright posts (the two 2x4s and two 2x6s). I was expecting to crumble when I had the cabinet fully loaded, but these casters proved very sturdy: they were replacement casters for a couch, I believe.
FYI - I built a 21U cabinet many years ago and it was an afternoon's work that cost less than $100. The most expensive thing was the metal rails themselves, for $63 back then. I think I posted it around here somewhere but it was over a decade ago...
Crazy that this thread is twelve years old. How things have evolved in that time.
My home office / moonlighting gig setup is currently a three-host ESX6.7 cluster with a dedicated FreeNAS SAN over a 10gig fiber network (prices are what I paid on eBay):
Each host (3):
I posted pics in the Network pics thread, but I finally got my ESX lab up and running around a much more performant iSCSI SAN.

I finally organized all of my kit into a single cabinet in my garage (most pics are linkable to very large version).
First, the crappy attempt at a panoramic shot to capture the whole cabinet:

Last week I retired two of my Supermicro H8QME-2 4P folders that I've had around for many years now. When they got rid of BigAdv my total production dropped to around 100k PPD and I was sad, but then last week I realized the power of GPU folding, bought a pair of GTX1080s and dropped them onto...
So for CPU-only boxes, there isn't much of a difference between Linux and Windows, then?
What about the additional scripts like Langouste or Kraken? Last night I ran the fahinstall script from the setup guide and it installed everything but when I launched the auto-installed v6 client, the...
If I recall, one of the primary drives for folding on an Ubuntu box was that the -bigAdv option was Linux only. Now that it is no longer A Thing, are there any PPD benefits to folding on Linux over Windows?
[I've just flattened a folding box and am rebuilding it and I realize how much I...
So I've recently set up three more folders and I am getting wildly different PPD and TPF scores for them, even though they are identical, hardware-wise.
The machines are all Windows servers, running on 16GB RAM 8-core AMD Opteron 6128 processors @ 2GHz.
Two of the three servers are running...
