Proper Installation

  1. Greetings Everyone,

    I am new to this forum, and also new to using a server. I received a Dell PowerEdge 1400SC server from one of my clients (I do web sites). The OS is Windows 2000 server.

    I have the following hard drives sitting on my desk:

    2 - Quantum Atlas V 18 WLS SCSI Disk Drives
    3 - Seagate ST373405LC SCSI Disk Drives
    1 - Seagate ST373405LW Disk Drive

    My question is: How do I install them the right way?

    This is, I'm sure, a tall order to answer. If anyone is interested in responding, I can post the rest of my internal parts if needed. Appreciate any help offered. Thanks in advance.

    The "right depends" on what SCSI controllers your server has, what you think is important and what sort of work the server will be doing really.

    Do you already have some drives installed in the server and Windows is running there and you only want to add your own disks?

    The drives you have are an odd set.. The LW Seagate is a hotswap drive. What use is a single SCSI hotswap drive? That server doesn't even have hotswap trays. So you would need an enclosure for that single drive or get a 68-pin to SCA adapter..
