I have a TL2000 from Dell and it works great. It has an LTO-4 drive in it which can back up 800GB/1600GB. I highly recommend it.

(most likely) If your server has any hardware raid devices you may need to locate and configure the linux drivers for that, instruction should be included for linux config.]

To install Windows server 2000 on that machine you will need Dell PowerEdge™ Installation and Server Management CD you can download ISO file from this link:

http://search.dell.com/results.aspx?s=gen&c=us&l=en&cs=&k=Dell+PowerEdge+Installation+and+Server+Management+CD&cat=sup&x=6&y=5


P.S.
Burn that ISO file to CD, start installation from that CD and follow instructions it is quite simple.

Which scsi connection do I use to connect internal


Normally you SCSCI cable has 4 to 7 connectors the ribbon cable normally the last or next to last for a terminator is installed on the end of cable most DAT drive are self terminating so you may need to remove the terminator off the end cable.
The power from the power supply 4 pins to tape drive I assume you are talking about the DAT drive
When dealing with servers with SCSCI you have 7 devices per channel on the back side of the hard drive backplane you will be able to add the DAT drive cable or a standalone controller 68 pin ‘
Let me know if you need more help I can post some photos where two of my servers have DAT drive installed one for a Adaptec control and the other using controller of the back plane of hard drive array.
Dealing with SCSCI maters not what contoler you use

Does Dell PowerEdge 4600 Server support DVD ROM


I am working on one of these now and yes, it should boot from DVDROM. Be aware that it is a notebook style drive and there are no onboard IDE or SATA controllers, so once the drive dies you're in for a wallet hit. Same goes for the floppy drive which is integrated with the DVDROM. Even worse, the presence of the broken floppy usually means a USB floppy drive won't help when loading windows drivers at install time.

I'm having some trouble with a dell poweredge 2650 I bought off eBay.


You are not too clear, however I'll take a guess ..

1) Booting from CD ... older CD drives fitted to PE26xx range do not recognize Windows 2003 bootable install CD's .. the TS-L462C (a laptop drive) should be compatible with the PE 2650 (I know it works in my 2600)

2) Installing the Operating System onto the PERC SCSI Array drives .. a total pain .. with older OS (Windows 2000) you can use the 4 x floppy disk set to install and hit (F6 ? as I recall) to tell it to 'load a 3rd party driver' ... get the PERC drivers from the Dell site.

Alternative = toss the useless Tape Drive and install a set of SATA drives in the same space (a 3 drive Hot Swap caddy eclosure will fit = Icy Box or StarTech) .. you will need a PCI RAID card (such as Si3124) since the M'Bd has nothing but a combined floppy/TapeDrive IDE interfafce.

3) Finally, be aware that this is a SERVER level box .. spare parts & Dell 'official' upgrades are going to cost you an arm & a leg = and don't even ask what the special 'ECC parity' Memory sticks cost :-)

Adding DVD to Poweredge 2600


PE2600 has lots of spare power (unless you are already using all 6 SCSI drive bays) ..

You can fit 3 x SATA drives in the space where the (useless) tape backup unit is sitting [you can even buy a 'proper' enclosure = Icy Dock MB453SPF or I think the SNT-2131 will fit ] .. and you can split the power off the Tape drive (4pin) power socket ..

I've not found a DVD burner (only a combined DVD reader / CD burner = TS-L462C) .. however if you have a spare IDE port you should be able to use an external unit [you will need an e-ide cable & enclosure for the drive]
