Don't toss it yet

In another 5 or more years those IT closets will empty and the last remaining netservers and the quadruple redundant trays will flood the market.  Maybe not like that but the trays were made and sold I doubt they failed, it's just companies keeping spares.

   	I feel your pain, have the same problem with an Axil storage array.
Great shape, has power supplies and everything else. No HD sleds or cage
the raid cards. They are unobtanium of the highest order. Hate to toss it
it cost me nearly $100 a couple years ago. Most of that being shipping.
