adding esata to an HP ML350 G5 tower?
Posted on 2009-04-03
We have the hp running sbs2003 and it is quite adequate to our needs. I would like to insert an eSATA controller board into the thing so as to be able to attach a separate drive upon which to back up the native HP RAID5 drive system (Smart Array 640 i believe).
Does anyone have any experience with doing such a thing? Could you recommend an eSATA controller that would work? The server is already SATA so could I simply grab a spare connector and attach another drive to the internal SATA controller?
server is dual xeon processor with 400gb raid5 of which about 100 is currently utilized, wishing to attach a 1.5TB drive for backing up
