Forgive me if this is the wrong place to be asking these two questions, but I cannot seem to find a more appropriate place to do so.
Someone within our company purchased 6x DS4243 storage shelves from an auction and I am wondering two things:
1.) As much as I have read, these units are useless without a NetApp controller? That is, you cannot directly connect these units using a HBA to say, a Windows/Linux server?
2.) If there is a need for a controller, will that controller need to be licensed to operate? Does it come with some limited functionality otherwise?
Again, sorry if this is totally the wrong place for this.
