We have an old x236 machine with 2 70-GB SCSI disks installed on Ultra320 SCSI connector (check out the hardware manual). Now, we are planning to buy a new server in future and x326 would act as a backup machine (no more resource hungry processing). So, we need to use cheap 2TB SATA HDD. When I opened the server myself, couple of queries came into my mind:
- Since there are variety of SATA-to-SCSI controllers (like this), would it work with x236 machine without reconfiguring RAID?
- Would that converter (in the aforementioned link) works with all kind of SCSI interfaces, especially the one in x326 (29pins or 80pins? this is confusing!)?
- As the converter has multiple SATA cables, does that means it can map many sata HDDs on one SCSI slot?
Please cure my curiosity! Thanks
