We have just brought a refurbished dell R610 2 X 6 Core X5650, 96G Ram, SAS 6ir Raid Controller, 2 X Fujitsu MBC2073RC 2.5-Inch 15K 73GB SAS Hard Drive.
We are going to also be installing additional drives:
- 2 X Intel 730 2.5-Inch 480 GB SSD's SSDSC2BP480G4R5
- 2 X Samsung Momentus SpinPoint ST2000LM003 2TB 2.5"
I also seperatly brought a refurbished H700 Raid controller to use rather than the SAS 6ir card.
I now have all the parts in front of me (I hope) but on searching for install instructions I can't seem to find decent instructions / videos on how to install this card in the H700. Does anyone have links or can describe what to do? Eg should I:
- Remove the existing SAS 6ir and install the H700 where the 6iR was? (I am guessing yes...)
Eg in the Dell R610 owners manual on page 89 they talk generally about installing an expansion card. I also looked in the Dell PowerEdge RAID Controller Cards H700 and H800 but that talks a lot about configuration of parameters for performance, configuring RAID etc but it doesn't really talk much about actual installation.
So how do I install this H700 card in our Dell R610? Hints, pointers, links?
