8.2.3a latest Compatible Peripherals Guide
by John Ellis on Nov 14, 2010 at 10:42:31 pm
The latest CPG I have is from 2004 and I am trying to figure out what the latest hardware is that supports P6000/8.2.3a...if someone has a link to the last applicable CPG and Legacy CPG (just in case) I'd appreciate it...I am thinking about moving from my Quicksilver Dual 1G to a more modern G5...any advice appreciated here.

The P6000 cards do not fit into a G5; there is an issue with power requirements of the P6000 cards that are not supported by the PCI-X slots in G5 systems. There are PCI expansion chassis that allow PCI-X G5s to connect to a P6000 card, though. We have some of them here as spare parts, so in case you want one I guess we could find a way to make that happen. You can contact me off list in case you are interested. You just need to make sure that you have a PCI-X G5 (and not a PCI Express G5, which were the latest generation of G5s). The speed improvement is great compared to a G4, though.
