TL2000 SAS Adapter card suggestion

Jump to solution

I need to move our 3-year old, 2x LTO-4 SAS drive, PowerVault LT2000 library from an older PE2950 (1st Gen), to a not-as-old PE2950 III. Both are PCIe I think(?)

The TL2000 shipped with a 2-port Dell SAS 5/E HBA, PC I-Express 2X4 adapter card with mini-SAS connectors (item Number 341-5016) which I need to leave behind. Does anyone know specifically which adapter card I need to buy? A link or a valid Dell part # would be great.

Thx,

PC

I have literally just finished installing mine on a PE1950

I bought this card and it works fine - just remember not to put the card in the primary pci slot or it confuses the SAS raid controller and the machine will not boot - took me a little while to work that out! Now all I have to do is work out how to fix the mechanical block error 😞 hope that help. Nick
