hard drives should just be SCSI in a RAID 1 array.

you've got a media convergence server and a lot of the drivers that cisco uses outside of the normal system drivers are done by cisco. CallManager software is all cisco so you've got to go through them for restoration discs if you've lost them.  Look at: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps556/prod_configuration_guide09186a00800b7565.html#14271 

Lookup the Compaq Insight Manager to check the drive array as most of these boxes (all i think but i'm not positive) use the Compaq Smart Array 221 Controller for the disk array.
