IBM Server Attached Storage Questions
Posted on 2013-06-24
Greetings Experts! First, let me say that I am not a storage guy so this could be painfully obvious so forgive me if I seem lost.
I have an IBM x3500 mk2 server. I have an IBM 174724X storage enclosure. I have a IBM M5025 ServeRAID controller card.
I have put the controller card in the server. Windows Server 2008R2 recognizes it. I assume I have to install some low-level drivers for the storage enclosure but it didn't come with any and I can't find them on IBM's site. I went ahead and plugged the enclosure into the server but the enclosure nor the server did anything in response. The enclosure is loaded with 9 600GB drives.
Again, this might seem stupid, but can someone give me the lowdown on what I need to do to get the server to see the enclosure and the storage within?
Thanks for any help you can offer!
