It is a FWD hotswap array and is probably connected to the HSC bus FWD SCSI controller that was installed for the internal cage (maybe you are lucky and there are two controllers). You can crack open the drive sleds and install bigger drives if you want - some of the sleds have FWD disks inside while other have SE with a convertor board (and are much easier to upgrade).

Do you know what drive-types that are SE->FWD converted? Do I have to
crack these babies open to find out?
I have *multiple* 2GB, 4GB and 9GB drives just sitting here, and it
would be perfect to either use the SE-drives in other machines, or, pop
bigger drives into the Jamaica-box.
