how to check if server has SCSI or IDE
I was wondering if someone can tell me how can I find out if my server has SCSI or IDE drive, & also how to see if the server has specified memory or not.
If its a linux server you can type:
dmesg | grep hd which will look for ide and you should see something like the following:
hda: attached ide-disk driver.
hda: host protected area => 1
hda: 78165360 sectors (40021 MB) w/2048KiB Cache, CHS=4865/255/63, UDMA(100)
md: Autodetecting RAID arrays.
dmesg | grep sd
which you should then look for the smiliar output..
or another option is
this will tell you the type of drive and partions.
for memory you can check either
When I login via WHM I see following message under Server Information.

In the mean time I am going to download a ssh software and check about commands too.
My server is suppose to have
Dual Intel Xeon™ 2.0GHZ HYPERTHREAD
Memory: 2GB DDR RAM
1x 146 SCSI HD (Primary)
1x 120 IDE HD (Secondary for backup via WHM)
But am not 100% sure about what tye of primary & secondary HD do I have at this time.
Run that and you can get the disk info you want.

I thought a very simple way is to tell about the size of the hard disk? IDE comes in 40 , 60 , 80 etc, while SCSI 36 , 73 etc
You can use the following commands to get that inforamtion,
dmesg | grep -i scsi
These commands are very good to check your servers installed hardwares.

/dev/hdX = (e)ide
/dev/sdX = scsi (or s-ata?)
run "mount" or "df" and see what pops up
Oh I figured out, I was seeing primary drive space much more than 146 GB and wanted to make sure that they didn't gave me 160 IDE instead.. but it seems like as they didn't had 146 SCSI in stock and cuz of the little delay, they just gave me 181 GB SCSI as primary.
Again, thanks a lot to everyone and I am going to copy all the command from here and write them in a text file on my computer, so they can come in handy in the future when time comes
