installing a Fujitsu SCSI disk on a Dell PowerEdge 1600Sc

I have a new 147Gb Fujistu SCSI hard drive that i want to add on a Dell PowerEdge 1600Sc. I have connected it but can not see it when the server boots. What configurations are needed?

Is it on a chain with other SCSI disks? You need to make sure it's ID is set to something unique from the other devices on the same bus.

I want to install it as an independent drive. How do i configure the disk?

This depends on the configuration of the server, which is why I asked how it was setup before.

Is the disk on a RAID controller or a standard SCSI controller? Is the disk on a SCSI chain with other drives? If so, did you configure it's jumpers so that it has a unique SCSI ID?

I just looked up some docs on the PE1600SC and realized this is likely a front-loading hot swap disk, 80 pin. If that's the case, then it is going to be on the same RAID controller that you have the other drives on. If *that* is the case, then you need to go into the RAID controller's configuration menu and configure a RAID 0 on that one drive. This is how you get a single drive to act independently on a RAID controller.

What controller is it? The 1600SC doesn't appear to have a RAID controller by default, so I'm not sure what controller you're working with there.
