I have a Fujitsu AL10 drive to replace a bad drive in my Dell Server, but there was no documentaion with this drive. What positions should the jumper be in to replace my bad drive 2 in a 3 drive Raid configuration?

    Accepted Solution

    The AL-10 is a family of disks.  There is a SCSI and a SAS version, which have different physical connectors and controller interfaces.  I wouldn't expect either one of them to have any jumpers to worry about, as the RAID controller automatically sets the addressing due to the backplane and slot number you plug it in.

    Correct, you do not have to set jumpers, just plug in the drive, it designates it on the back plane on this server.

    The question was answered by both responses.  No jumper settings necessary. Points should be awarded.
