Can a Dell Poweredge 1800 use SATA 1.5 and 3.0 drives?
Posted on 2008-10-20
I have just recently purchase a Dell poweredge 1800 server. It has got the CERC 1.5/6 Channel Raid Controller card in it. My question is, I know that the card is only sata 1.5. Is this card compatible with the new sata 3.0 drives. I know some companies like seagate add a jumper to change it down to 1.5. Another thing I was wandering about is what will be the largest drive this card supports?
The reason I am asking is I am wanting to put in some 1 TB RAID 1 arrays for data storage.
