Re: Adding internal disks on 9000/800/A500-5X

An A500 support only two internal disks.
So you need to add a scsi controller and external disks

Shalom,

See http://docs.hp.com/en/hw.html#A-Class%20Server

For options.

We use a lot of these systems and none can have more than 2 internal disks.

Re: Adding internal disks on 9000/800/A500-5X

there is no more slot in the server that you can add additional internal disk. you have the option to daisy chain a new scsi disk from the rear of the server using the available scsi port or you can buy new scsi adapters :

A5149A : Ultra2 SCSI/LVD
A5150A : Dual Port Ultra2 SCSI/LVD
