    Having looked at the quote again this is the server we'll be buying:
    http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/uk/en/sm/WF25a/15351-15351-3328412-241475-241475-4132832.html?dnr=1
    According to the spec this looks like a system with inboard HDs.
    Ok, silly question then :eek: Didn't realise it would be as simple as that.
    I appreciate this but within the constraints we have I'm just keen to retain data access where possible. Obviously other things can go wrong and different components can fail but we will simply have to deal with such things if/when they arise. The key thing that started the whole process was an appropriate alternative to Tape backup, which is why I have primarily focused on issues pertaining to accessing backup data.

    Thank you once again for the help you've provided, it has been extremely useful. :grinthumb

    yea, sorry - my bad - you are correct.

    As best I can tell the spec sheet says
    so it looks like it has (4x) network. If so then one goes to your switch.
    The NAS then (imo) belongs on one of the others.

    I'm a tad concerned in that other devices explicitly site RJ45 Ethernet 1gbit networking.
    HP is calling GbE NC382i a network controller (aka like my Realtek RTL8139/810x), but doesn't specify RJ45 ports

    Thanks for pointing this out, I'll make sure to bring it up when we discuss how all of this will be installed/setup.
