I recently obtained an "array networks spx2000". I don't really plan on using it but before I can actually do anything with it, I need to determine if it works or not. What is the simplest way to determine that it's atleast not bricked? I can turn it on and it says it's running without error, but without actually testing for what it does, is this enough to guerentee that it works? I'm assuming not, that's why I'm asking.
Now, it was slightly used before I got it. I'm not sure as to what extent though. I wasn't given the nine pin cable for it. I was only given the power cord and the server itself really.
What is the easiest way to test to see if it works at this point?
