One of my sites received a donation from another school. 2 Xserve G5s, a Xserve G4 and a 5tb RAID.. I donated a fiber switch and two replacement power supplies (Both G5’s had blown power supplies, common problem).
Wonderful system, now what.
The question I had in regards to the RAID: Is is possible to have its two drives appear on all the other Server’s desktops?
Fiber switch $70.
Fiber cables, systems came with 4.
Presently only 2 fiber cards.
Plugged the two cables from the RAID, one cable for each “Drive”, into the fiber switch. Then one (1) cable from each of the Xserves. Bingo, it worked. Both servers can access all the data on both RAID drives.
I can see possibilities for databases, podcasts….
