Hello everyone, I have a ds3200 full of 15k rpm 300GB drives and dual SAS controllers. I primarily deal with routing, switching, and firewalls but want to set this up in my home to use in my lab and learn more about storage. I am having trouble finding info, so can anyone point me in the right direction of how to get this up and running? Is there a specific HBA that I have to use it will any external SAS card work? Also, I'm assuming there was a line/model of IBM servers that this came out with, but I can't find what that is, if it matters. Can I just get an IBM server with a PCIe card with a couple SAS ports to set this up or do I need more specific components? I'm a total newbie when it comes to this obviously and really want to learn more about storage, but the only way I can get any real hands on is in my home lab and would really love to be able to put this to use. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
