I am unsure as to what to call this but its a 15 bay storage bank.. i cannot find anything regarding how to set it up or any kind of documents from Dell or EMC. I am just trying to find out how to hook this system up and use the storage.

Did i bite off more than i can chew? :?:

From what I can tell this is just a disk shelf, you would need the controller unit to do anything useful with it. This is also fiber channel. I would assume you would connect this to the controller via fiber through the PRI port, the EXP port would be to daisy chain another disk shelf to it. The reason you have two PRI ports is for fault tolerance. The FC Controllers I think it connects to is the EMC CX700, CX500, and the CX300. These are the units that will have the necessary software to manage the disks.

At the moment you have a paper weight unfortunately.

You could try it if you could pick one up relatively cheap but I have the feeling it won't work.
