This is begging for hardware - if you could spare a couple (2-4?)
SAS6iR cards for a couple of weeks....
We have 8 x R200 servers which were (for mysterious reasons I won't go
into right now!) bought without RAID cards. These are some low end
production servers that were supposed to be live last week. I've had
them for a month and Dell has delayed and delayed my order of 8 x
SAS6iR cards. Now today I found out my order was CANCELLED!
I'm screaming/hopping mad, but my rep (and his backup) are BOTH out of
town today. Sales (general) has resubmitted the order but are telling
me 1-2 weeks!!!
If there is anyone out there that can spare two to four (four would be
perfect, the other 4 I'm ordering are for spare servers) I'd be
forever if your debt! I'll pick up fedex shipping costs - and I'll
ship you the brand new ones as soon as they get here.
P.S. So you know the full story - they say the order was cancelled
one month after it was placed (and approved and I received
confirmation!) because the credit card was invalid! He ran the same
darn card today and it was fine - so I'm not sure I believe their
story! I can give you plenty of references of trustworthiness - and I
ALWAYS repay a favor!
P.P.S. If you have a relatively low cost alternative suggestion - I'd
be happy to run down to the local electronics store and buy some other
RAID card - but because these are prod servers I was trying to stay
with the "officially" supported Dell design! It's a SIMPLE two drive
mirror/RAID 1 that I want.
