1. Only the following models of the Server 325 are supported: 8639-EJ0, ES0, ESV, RSO, PT0, PTW, PB0, RB0.
2. OS/2 is not supported.
3. SCO UnixWare 2.1.2 is not supported.

The ServeRAID-3H is a 64-bit PCI adapter offering three Ultra2 SCSI channels with one internal SCSI connector and two or three external SCSI connectors.
The ServeRAID-3L is its entry level sibling: it is a 32-bit PCI adapter with one Ultra2 SCSI channel.

Both the 3H and 3L adapters support both single ended (SE) and low-voltage differential (LVD) SCSI disk drives.
The Ultra2 SCSI interface supports RAID-0, RAID-1, RAID-1 Enhanced, and RAID-5 logical drives and supports SCSI, SCSI-2, Ultra SCSI and Ultra2 SCSI drives.

The ServeRAID-3H is a replacement for the IBM ServeRAID II Ultra SCSI Adapter, (OPT P/N 76H3584), and the IBM ServeRAID SCSI Adapter (OPT P/N 70G8489).
