Question about Dell PowerEdge 2600 Server
If you need multiple USB ports, go onto ebay and find a 3.3v PCI usb card. The large PCIX slots in the server are PCI compatible and will accept a 3.3v pci card. (It just doesnt fill the entire socket), or you will notice to the bottom of the mainboard there is ONE 5v pci slot, you can get a 5v PCI USB cotroller and stick it in there.
Either way, you have more USB sockets. As the mainboard ones are built in, if its broken, you either need to get a new mainboard (not cheap), or get a cheap PCI USB card.
(Note if using ESX, ESX 3.5 and below do not recognise USB ports anyway).
I have one myself and have done as mentioned.
