Dude, tell me about it... I tried to do ONE little thing and you would not belive the mess. All my web sites got deleted, my mail server was removed, and now I am unable to backup because of some weird file permissions error... :curse:
anybody know (off hand) how to disable the SCSI on a Proliant 800? It's dad's old reject server and the hard drive failed... that and I had to put the terminator in his new server with the tape drive, so I don't have a terminator. I'd like to stick one (or more) of the spare IDE drives in it that I've got sitting around.
I've had a good amount of SCSI experience having to deal with Macs and NLEs but if you are trying to disable a bus on it then it depends on whether or not it is on board. If it is on-board, then you can disable it in the BIOS, 99% of the time. If it it just a card then there shouldn't be anything else system critical on it; just pull the card.
The SCSI is built onto the riser card... the card that plugs into the motherboard and that all of the ISA/PCI slots are on, including the video. I can't very well just unplug that.
I tried looking through the BIOS and didn't see anything. Next time I'm down at dad's office I'll have to swipe the manuals that came with it... not like he needs them anymore.
Now, anybody know where to get unbuffered EDO DIMMs for cheap?
