i have:

intel server MB se7501HG2

i found this:

INTEL IIRZNOCHXX ITE E175975 RAID CONTROLLER CARD

installed in the machine

there are 5 

Seagate Cheetah 10K.7 73GB Drives

in a hot swap bay. 

 

My question is:

 

Do i need this controller?

Does it do something the onboard Adaptec can not?

 

I'm trying to learn about SCSI and this server is my first time, any help would be appreciated.

Gday Thexder. 

Yes, you do need the controller as the onboard does not support RAID 1E/10E, only RAID 0. 1. 5. 10. which are standard RAID.  10E and 10E are enhanced RAID.

Here is a tutorial on standard RAID arrays, > http://support.dell....DoNotRedirect=y

Here is an explanation of Enhanced RAID.  >  http://www.techrepub...primer-raid-1e/
