External Array

External Array

This is an old array controller. It has 4 50-pin connections on board and no external connection. I can find no support for this card and am unsure about how to use it, how to access it or where to find drivers for it. I am trying to put it into a Proliant 5000 and had wanted to run an F1 tower array. With no external port is that not possible or could I connect via the 50 pin connections to another scsi card and use that external port?
Any information on how to use this card or set it up so at least the 4 internal drives are RAID array would be greatly appreciated.

Re: External Array

That is not a "Smart SCSI Array"... I'll pretty much lay odds it's an old IDA or IDA-2 controller (IDE bases, totally incompatible to SCSI drives).
