How do I manage my SCSI IBM storage array?

Hello, I have acquired a bunch of IBM SCSI storage arrays and I am trying to make one of them work on my HP server. I installed a SCSI PCI-X card and I can see each of the drives individually, but I want to manage the storage array controller to setup RAID10. If there is a very simple way to do this, that would be great. My understanding is that I have to install the full blown IBM Systems Director and then use ServerRaid to manage it. I can't find ServerRaid anywhere and i Can't seem to find out how to see the array in Systems Director.

My array is a type 1733.

the 1733 is a JBOD enclosure.  Think of it as an intelligent box that holds disk drives.  IBM software is unnecessary.

You can use your host O/S to do software RAID, or you can buy a SCSI RAID controller and use the software designed for that controller.

Just pretend the disk drives are mounted inside of your HP computer and take the 1733 out of the equation.
