I did a Google search and only came up with other "I think one exists"
> OMSA will not do anything to diagnose problems with an external 660/224 unit
Thanks. Won't waste time on that one.

Again, thanks. Was hoping the diags had a full test of connected

We happen to have one of the Dell Storage Experts visiting our site
and although he isn't fluent in Linux and has never seen a direct
