I have a PowerVault 124T with what appears to be a Mini SAS expansion port. This is an old system we want to power up for archive tapes. Online using the service tags Dell is unable to tell us what card this is or what it plugs into.
What we want to do is to use this PowerVault as out LTO4 legacy restore system by linking it directly to a Dell PowerEdge 1950. Though some fighting with Dell's ordering we got the correct cable for the PowerVault but got the wrong server card. The second picture attached is a picture of the cable and the back of the PowerVault. The first is the card Dell sent us.
The reason I need EE's help is because a recently got an email from Dell that stated "Check other vendors for the correct part."
In other words can someone help me track down a server card that will work with this cable?!
Thanks in advance
