i am trying to add a 3rd scsi drive to a server, but i have never worked with a scsi configuration before!

the drive terminal setup is found on the link below, but to be honest means very little to me!
can any one tell me how the jumper setup should be configured to allow the drive to basically act as storage drive so i can move some data across to it?

You need to set the first four pins to tell the drive what 'SCSI ID' it will be using. This ID MUST BE DIFFERENT from those already set in the system.

If you already have two hard disks installed, usually one will be SCSI ID 0 [zero]. The second disk may be SCSI ID 1. Do you have a SCSI tape drive installed? This may be using another ID. SCSI ID 7 is reserved for the SCSI controller. You would see what SCSI IDs are already in use during server startup. Try using ID 5 or ID 6 as these are probably not in use. The pins work in a binary setup: No jumpers in the first four pairs would be ID 0 [zero]. Follow the SCSI ID table to check what jumpers need to be installed.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

When you are in windows you need to open the disk manager. This can be found by right clicking my computer and selecting manage. Look down the left column and you will see disk manager.

Windows will probably prompt you to accept a new drive. Then you will need to create a partition on this drive and format the partition. Use NTFS if you can.
