I have a wee conundum, from a friend of mine, who needs some assistance.
Specifically, he has a HP LT6000R server, which has a number of hot-swappable SCSI SCA80 LVD HDD's, configured in RAID format.
And the server has died, and the data on the HDDs needs to be accessed.
1) One option is to buy a cheap second-hand LT6000 and put the HDDs in this second server and then all can/should work.
But an LT6000 (or equivalent) is not exactly easy to come by....or even to borrow one for a day....but these are not small servers - weighing a good 30 kg each.
2) The next option is to re-build a PC and fit a suitable HP Ultra-2 SCSI LVD RAID PC card and attach the drives to that.
BUT: the connector on the HDD's uses a single connector for both power AND data...so an outboard SCA80 type adaptor is required (for each HDD, of which there are 4 making up the RAID array) so that the data and power can be connected via separate cables.
I've found some of these adaptors from China for about GBP 6-8 each.
So, a question: Can anyone offer any assistance with this wee issue?
Having problems installing that new stick of memory? Found some great software or having issues with something? Or maybe want to chat about your PlayStation, X-Box, Nintendo, Sega, even your old Spectrum 48k....! Or maybe something you want to sell or acquire (computing related of course!). Let us know here...
