16595Re: Compatible Hard Drives on Linux
- Mar 3, 2007Looks like I'm late to the party. In Linux I think what you need to
look for is support for the Hard Drive controller and not so much the
drive itself. So if your existing scsi card works, adding more drives
wont be a problem.
If you're adding a new scsi card or an iscsi card or a fibre channel
hba then you'll need to check up on those.
