    How is the storage attached to the IBM server, and do you have the same on the Dell server?

      Dell seerver is fully isolated from the network as of now . Is not being used.Hence I would like to utilize this machine

        At the very least you can connect it via iSCSI. But if you have a SAS or FC (if the V3700 has an FC card) HBA in the 2950 then you can use either of those. Is this for production or lab/test/dev?

          V3700 has FC but njot sure abt dell server 2950. I just want to know whether I can connect v3700 volumes to Dell server by either way(iSCSI/FC) or wil it have any impact on IBM servers or v3700 SAN if i connect Dell to this v3700. It is a production environment.Thank you

            The 2950 is very very old.

            You will need either a FC or iSCSI hba installed in the 2950 for it to connect to your storage system.

            It shouldn't affect the IBM systems but its not a combination I have tested.
