Smart Array 641 and DL380G4

I have recently discovered that the Integrated Smart Array 6i that shipped with my DL380G4 does not support Novell Netware 6. I have a spare PCI Array 641 Controller. Can I use this instead? If so, which cable(s) would I disconnect from the Integrated Array to make the drives work with the 641?

Thanks for any help that can be provided.

Chris:

Take a look at the HP ProLiant DL380 Generation 4 Server Maintenance and Service Guide:
http://h200006.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00218202/c00218202.pdf
Begin on page 70 for the cabling diagrams. I would suggest PCI Duplex SCSI Cabling.

G'luck! -john

p.s.,
Here is the SCSI cabling matrix if you need:

Enjoy!

Chris:

Have you tried to use the latest HP Unified RAID Host Adapter Module:
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/19712.html

It shows support for the 6i.
Enjoy!
