Hi ikon

 

Where and how did you mount the two OS drives in the server,

Also what did you connect the 6th drive to ?. Are you using an additional SATA PCI card

 

Pretty sure i can fit the two 3.5" drives stacked in the 5.25" space but interested to how you, or anyone else has done this.

 

Thanks

Shane

 

 

If you are wondering about the connection for the 6th drive, some people have run an eSATA to SATA cable from the back connector to inside the box.  This would allow a 6th drive in the case but it eliminates your ability to use an external box for expansion using the eSATA port.

 

Like Chris said -- You can use the eSATA port to give you the 6th SATA connection. (you'll need to do the BIOS-MOD to get the full SATA II speed out of that port and the SATA port on the System Board)

 

Check out the pic's here regarding the eSATA http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/3583-drive-performance-on-n40l-microserver/?p=36377 and http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/3583-drive-performance-on-n40l-microserver/?p=36392

 

And running the System Board SATA to the ODD area http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/3579-server-2008-r2-enterprise-loaded-on-microserver/?p=35917

As I mentioned in my previous post, I'm using a regular desktop chassis for my WHS2011, not a MicroServer, so mounting drives wasn't really an issue. Of course, it does take up a lot more room.
