How to install 2nd hdd in Proliant ML150 server

I've purchased a 2nd non-hotswap SCSI hdd for this server. Can I use the same controller and ribbon that's connected to 1st hdd or do I need a 2nd controller? Thanks

Yes, you can daisy chain up to 8 or 9 devices on a SCSI channel, they each just need to be set to a different SCSI ID, usually by jumpers on the SCSI drive labeled ID0, ID1, ID2 and ID3, setting te binary value for the ID, i.e. no jumper is SCSI ID 0, and jumper on IDO sets ID # to ID 1, Jumpers on both ID0 and ID1 is 3, etc.
