[AG-TECH] Single Machine Node

These are interesting Spec's.  In our research we found that a dual-boot
machine with Windows and Linux was bad - eventually the builds and drives
would fail.  In addition we have not gotten a single version of VIC to stay
functional for more then an hour with dual processors.  Have you worked
around this?  What version of VIC?

hi Josh,

you can view our current configuration of a single box windows AG Node at

while we have operated quite a few variations of this configuration, and we
continue to experiment with different elements of it, we have been very
stable with this particular configuration for many months now.

note: this box is dual bootable as a linux box but we default to windows
both for enabling native powerpoint and because it seemed to have better
display performance under windows.

I was wondering if anybody had any specs on a single machine AG node.  We
have a very rough setup now, but Cindy told me that someone was working on
specs or a tutorial for one.  Thanks for any help.
