Chassis external SCSI port on DL380 G4

There's an external SCSI port on the rear of my DL380 - can I use this to connect an external JBOD disk enclosure containing 14 disks?

The server has 2 disks in RAID 1 for the system and 4 disks in RAID 5 for data and is running FreeBSD 8.2. I want to connect an external JBOD disk array which will be configured as a ZFS/RAIDz pool, I just want to confirm whether the chassis port is OK for this or whether I need to fit an additional SCSI controller.

thanks, Andy

Only if you don't use the internal conenction for drives. You could move all the disks external.

Thanks for the prompt reply & clarification! I want to keep the existing internal disk set-up as it is so I guess my best bet is to install another SCSI controller for the JBOD array - I have a spare Adaptec 29160 I could use for this.

cheers, Andy
