Question regarding Dell PowerEdge and RAID controller card

First post here, so a total unRAID noob. Also I'm only used to all-in-one Macs for the moment so probably silly questions ahead 😉


Have the chance to get a Dell PowerEdge T710 but i'm not sure if a Dell PERC RAID controller card is actually needed in that machine, to be able to use it as a server for unRAID?


If that Dell PERC RAID controller card is needed, then well i already checked the forums and it seems a flashed H200 in IT-mode works, but the H700 seems to be a different story. So if that RAID controller is needed guess i best go for that flashed H200.

You don't need, and shouldn't use, a RAID controller with Unraid, you need onboard SATA ports and/or an HBA, like the H200 in IT mode, not familiar with that Dell but as long as there are enough SATA ports onboard or on an HBA that's all you need.

Thanks for the answer. Guess I'll leave the Dell route behind and go for a self-build server, created a thread for it here.
