Can I setup a Dell Poweredge R200 server to use a HP D2600 Storageworks Disk enclosure by using a controller such as PERC 6e or the HP p412 / p410 (??) or other compatible controller in the Dell R200?
If it is possible, which controller would be recommended as I prefer the HP equipment (personal taste nothing against Dell) and as I received the Dell server for next to nothing (I actually swopped a harddrive and graphics card for it)
Can I plug the HP controller into the Dell PCI Expansion slot if this is possible? Also the HP D2600 will be populated with SATA disks and specifically I will be wanting to use one of the following controllers with the D2600:
Smart Array P212/256 MB Controller; Smart Array P212/256 MB Controller with BBWC; Smart Array P411/256 MB Controller; Smart Array P411/512 MB Controller; Smart Array P411/512 MB Controller with BBWC; Smart Array P812
Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks
