I have recently have a cockup with backups and such and have decided to set this spare server up as a backup server - mainly.
I have an old dusty eServer from a old job. I mean real dusty! So i was thinking about rehousing it into my old silverstone tj05 - but then i saw the hard drive mount in the server. Now ive never been near a server before..this may be normal. But it goes from IDE on the motherboard...to an IBM circuit board the length of the hdd bay. On the other side (where the hdds go) it seems like some kind of push in and connect system..although some kind of IBM fitting no doubt...some kind of hot swap?
Ideas on this?
I need to eventually have about 2tb of storage or so I dunno...just a bit of a project to back everything up and potentially turn into a media server.
Its this http://servers.alege...47-86474BX.html
but with 1gb of RAM i've established so far and potentially two cpus
edit: seems its SCSI (thanks jim!) hdd options now limited?
original hdd apparently : 32P0726 IBM 36.4GB 10K Ultra320 SCSI Hot-Swap SL HDD
