Server G5 365 and storage

Hi all,

 

I have a server G5 365 that I bought with a storage, now the storage  have a controller module with a scasi interface model number is AS# 361653-501 

I can't for my life find what type of controller card I need in the 365, so I ask here to see if anyone knows what type of card and cable I need and can point me to a place where I can buy it.

 

Thanks

 

Fox

Re: Server G5 365 and storage

Is this the controller module in the storage shelf?

Then maybe this is the storage you have?

If so, you need an UltraSCSI320 adapter and cable for your server.

 

There may be one listed on this page:

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12799_na/12799_na.HTML#Additional Options

 

Not certain if you need a 'normal' or 'Smart array' type controller for that shelf, though.

 

Can't help any more at the only MSA20 I ever used was attached to a MSA1500 unit, and that again was attached to the servers using Fibre.

 

anyway, a whole lot of guesswork based on a partial servername and what looks like a partnumber for the controller module in a diskshelf.

Maybe we can be a bit more specific with proper and complete server and storage names.

(If in doubt, overwhelm us with details)

Looks like a MSA20, so you need a smartarray controller inside the server to connect the enclosure - a "normal" scsi controller does NOT work.


Hope this helps!

Re: Server G5 365 and storage

According to the quickspecs you need a

"...Support for the Smart Array 6404, Smart Array 6402, Smart Array 642 and the Smart Array 6i Controllers"

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11942_div/11942_div.html

The server quickspecs list the sa6404/6402 controller

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12799_div/12799_div.HTML

This is what you need.



Or better a SAS controller and a SAS disk enclosure

;-)

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
