IDE Controllers

Note:
This information applies to non-Micro Channel computers.


Some severs have an IDE controller on the system board. You can connect two drives to the IDE controller on non-disk-array models, and one drive to the IDE controller on disk-array models. If you plan to do this, you must purchase an IDE cable.

The IDE controller is for low-speed devices, such as tape drives, but you can connect hard disk drives. When you connect two drives to the IDE controller, one drive is the primary (master), and the other is the secondary or alternate (subordinate). To set the jumpers to the secondary mode, follow the instructions in the documentation supplied with the drives.
