You have one of these ?

These are corporate class storage units and the size of a fridge. Getting one of these puppies up and running will require some hardcore networking and configuration, beyond the scope of this forum (possibly ...)

Yes! i have only the heads, i didn't get my hands on the 32tb of drives in time. I found my issue though I'm missing the pci-x scsi raid controller card and they aren't cheap for the type of hdds i have. its like $125-$250 for the one i need and varies in condition the cheaper one of the 5 I'm considering in in bad condition but the newer is from a HP server which i have no idea how to run.
