dell poweredge sc1425 newer raid cards


Hi newbie here, learning Windows server 2008 online and have got two rack servers, one poweredge 2650, poweredge sc1425.

I have looked on search engines and eBay for a compatible raid card that I can use with 2.5 sata drives as I can fit more in the sc1425 this way.

It there a repository list of fairly up to date compatible cards.
*
DELL XD084 6 X SATA I N/A RAID CONTROLLER,
And
LSI 3ware 9500S-4LP 4-Kanal SATA RAID 0,1,10,5,JBOD PCI & PCI-X bis 8 TB
Have cought my eye as possible candidates. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Steven

Hello and welcome to LQ.

In compatible do you mean that Windows 2008 supports it or do you mean it will fit in the server or do you mean Linux will support it?

From the specs online it looks like you only have a single PCI-X slot. They didn't stick around for very long. Only a few choices for PCI-X and most all are raid cards.

You need to find what chip is in those cards. Pretty sure the LSI is fully supported both in linux and windows. Find the exact chip and number and look for support for it. Most of the LSI is supported. Dell card has some common chip in it. Find it to see if it will work.

Thank for this bit of info I was kind of only getting hits mainly on these two Companies. one of the pci-x cards i found has a raid of greater than 4TB so i might have a bit of fun with that.

The good part of this deal is that the pci-x cards almost all went into servers. Those servers had choices of Suse, Red Hat and Windows in most cases. Some Solaris and AIX and beyond.
