dell power edge 2450 cannot reinstall expansion cage
Posted on 2004-04-19
I will try to explain as best I can. Have a Dell power edge 2450 server - in the expansion cage it has a raid card, nic card, and a new scsi card I just installed. In order to get the cage out I had to unplug a ribbon cable that runs from the raid controller to the hard drives - now, I cannot get this cable plugged back in to the raid card when I am trying to reinstall the expansion cage - there is just no room - I spoke to Dell - on the phone with them for about an hour - they proved to be useless - I am not inexperienced at this but I have to be missing something - I don't really know how else to explain it - does anyone have experience with this particular issue?
