Re: DL 30 G6 e-sata

e-sata seems to be external, so do you have the external disks in a extra disk enclosure?
Or do you have SATA disks in side the DL380 G6 too?

Supported quickspecs for the DL380 G6 can be found here:

Gives you the smart array controllers, SAS/SATA are compatible. And lists how many ports each have.

no,we are going to use external disks (eg wd mybook with e-sata)for the backup.I forgot to mention that the server will run microsoft server 2008 standard edition. so we are looking for the best possible suggestion for a pci to e-sata controller.

Then get one of the cards in there that has external SATA/SAS ports.

Is this supported?
