Question about Dell PowerEdge 2600 Server
Steve - how do i add a dvd burner to a poweredge server using a 3 port sata & 1 Port IDE PCI card? where do I get the power from for the new drives
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]
