    Dell PowerEdge 1800 On-Board SCSI & SATA Questions


    Question 1:

    Does anyone know what model of on-board SCSI controller this uses and is it supported by recent 2.6 kernels?

    Question 2:
    If SATA is being used and software RAID 1 is being used (I already know it will not be supported by Linux)...if the BIOS was set to JBOD would Linux be able to access one of the drive's and see all the data normally without damaging anything?



    Thanks guys!

    I will answer first question:

    LSI Logic NPT Fusion.

    This device is supported on kernel-2.6.14/later (source: linuxhq).

    Thanks anonxyz

    Do you happen to know the name of the driver in the Linux kernel?
    The only LSI Logic I see is for RAID

    Thanks

    The chipset type is LSI Logic MPT Fusion 53c1030.

    Setting up SCSI & RAID is rather complicated.

    For driver etc it's better to ask the Dell mailing list at:

    linux.dell.com
