Dell PERC 6/E on ancient hardware


Tony Hanratty

Question

Someone has been, er, "kind" enough to give me an old Dell Powervault MD1000 with 20 Tb installed, and a PERC 6/E controller card.

I know this card hasn't been supported since 6.something, but it would be fun to get it going.

 

Just to make things more difficult, the server is an oooooold x3850 X5 running XenServer 7.6 (Don't ask!).

 

So tell me... do I just pull the drives from the Powervault and take everything else down the scrap yard? Or is there a universe in which this is doable?

 

Many thanks.
