SOURCE: Drive Options with a Dell Poweredge 2600

I would definitively not recommend to remove the backplates, unless you want to ask for serious trouble with your system.

I would install a PCI SATA adapter card (one like these) and connect your SATA drives to it.

SOURCE: connect ide or sata drives to a dell poweredge

Yes and No..

The standard machine only allows SCSI, (no IDE or SATA or SAS connectors...

However SCSI drives are not cheap.. so

To overcome the power issue (you will notice there are no 4 pin molex connectors, or sata power connectors). However there is a 4 pin molex socket on the SCSI backplane. You can use one of those molex adaptor cables (one connector to many) to get power, from the molex you can use a 4 pin to SATA power connector.

Next step is to decide the drive you want to use. I personally use SCSI, SATA, SAS and IDE in mine (overkill I know).

Cheapness says use IDE or SATA. You can get a pci IDE/SATA controller card on ebay dirt cheap (PCI cards are compatible with the large PCIX slots), they dont take the entire "socket" up but they work (be carefull here, there is one 5v pci socket on these machines, and 6 pcix sockets, the pcix sockets will accept 3.3v pci cards (look at the notches).

Next you have to mount them, with a bit of jiggery pokery you can feed the IDE/SATA cables past the SCSI backplane into the hot swap bay. (If you dont have any empty caddy's pick them up off ebay), just remember you cant just pull em out like you can with the SCSI's!) - or use one of the 5 1/2 media bays.

Plud the other ends into the appropriate controller card (as installed in the PCI bus).

Load up the OS, install drivers (if needed - these should come with the pci card(s), use the disk manager to initialise/first format the drives etc.

All done.

I have done this myself running a 2600, with 2X U320 72gb SCSI (on Raid) 1 x IDE CD/DVDRW in Media bay, DAT 27 SCSI (channel B) in the second media bay. 2x 146gb SAS on a DELL SAS pcix card (in 2 of the hot swap bays) and an old 160gb IDE HDD (Funilly enough theres a bit towards the back of the two fans on the SCSI backplane that if you press the 3 1/2 drive against seems to fit perfectly in this place and stay there! (I think thats fluke to be honest).

All done :)

How or where in the BIOS do I switch video source to PCI? Old Dell PowerEdge 600SC. Attempting to install new video board.


Most servers (including the 600SC) were not designed for use with add-in video cards, thus, there is no jumpers or BIOS setting to disable the onboard video.

My Dell poweredge 600SC has a Dell CERC ATA 100/4 Ch Raid controller that is emitting a continuous shrilling tone. Bad card or bad drive?


Hi,

I'm assuming by now you've resolved this but if not it could be either the drive went bad OR due to a raid card driver issue the controller card thinks the drive is failed. I have three of the 600SC machines in my test lab and have experience the following issues.

= W2K3 Server
The native driver that will install with W2K3 has a number of times caused the CERC card to think a drive is failed. When using the driver from Dell's site and either using F6 at the beginning of the install the problem is resolved.

= Linux
Newer releases (circa early 2009 on) of Linux don't directly support the CERC ATA100/4 ch card and the driver has to be compiled into the kernel from the source code. Specifically my experience is with CentOS 5.2 and later.

I have a number of clients that are using both Dell 600SC and 400SC PowerEdge servers and have spent an inordinate amount of time learning to deal with these PITA controllers.

Anyone who like to share more regarding these can contact me at Shaferconsulting.com

Cheers!

What audio driver to i need for my dell poweredge 600sc server running windows server 2003? Is there a direct link? I search and have not found anything.


dell poweredge servers are not needed for sound. DELL support will not support any sound cards or care anything about your audio issues. You will not find audio drivers because again, a server's purpose has nothing to do with audio.
