I personally still have one of those old boxes around.

Works fine but regarding the disks and RAID controllers you should be aware that in my experience, booting from any of the disks did not work when put into JBOD mode. I ended up putting in an HBA controller which also needed new SAS cables as the ones it shipped with have plugs that are angled at 90° making it impossible to plug 2 of them into the HBA.

I’m planning to install, in the beginning, an instance of Debian 10 and in it I’m planning to have the usual setting for an enterprise like a filesharing software, an ERP, web server, etc...
