problems large IDE RAID?

Post by Paul Go » Tue, 18 Mar 1997 04:00:00



I would like to  set up a server using 4 large IDE drives and software RAID.

Can 3.2V5.0.2 handle the new 3.5 Gb and larger IDES?

Western Digital has a 4Gb for $389.00

Ah, that ought to really fly at a snail's pace.

This is a scsi application and not one for single user technology.

1. IDE RAID - FastTrak/66 (ATA/IDE - PCI RAID CONTROLLER)

It is at the moment, but Promise is suppose to be developing a driver.
Last time I checked, they said they had an alpha driver, but they didn't
have it posted yet. Check out the Promise support/download drivers
section. And yes, the FastTrack and the ATA66 are the same card (unless
they recently changed it) with different flash BIOSes and an "identity"
resistor.
