I have one SCSI drive pulled out from RAID1. The RAID is not stable, like to take a image from this disk.

I bought the exactly the same SCSI controller currently on the server and pulled out one of drive. Now I like to take an image.

I'm not familiar with SCSI. I don't know what type of disk cable I need and how to configure ID. Can anyone tell me about this how to do this?

Adaptec 2100S controller
Disk HP 146GB 15K RPM Wide Ultra320 disk.

I uploaded two images, one from connector of the controller and one from the disk. The disk doesn't have any jumper setting.

That disk has what is called a SCA connector.  You need an adapter so you can use it.   If you have a Fry's or decent computer retailer near you, ask for a SCA to 68-pin adapter.  Maybe $15.

Look here ...

The adapter has jumpers to set the ID, but the adaptec controllers standardize on ID #7 for the controller.  So just take off all the jumpers on the SCA adapter and it will assign ID #0 to your HDD.

The ID of everything just has to be unique.
