Extra IDE hard disk??

(con't the previous)

Or is it possible to add a raid controller for 2 IDE had disks running Raid 0 or 1

Any suggestion for adding more IDE add disks for the server since it is too expensive to add extra SCSI hard disk and i need more storage.

Please give suggestion, thank you

Re: Extra IDE hard disk??

I think your only option would be to go to an external cabinet as the 800 only has 2 or 3 drive bays. You can probably find refurbished SCSI array controllers (SMART-2/P or SMART-2DH) and 4.3, 9.1 or 18.2GB Wide-Ultra SCSI-3 internal drives that you could use. I'd recommend reviewing Compaq's reference material for this server (http://www.compaq.com/products/servers/ProLiant800/quickspecs.html)selecting the part numbers for these components and searching the web (www.chestnutmicro.com is a vendor I've used) for these components.
