Is anyone able to get Chelsio T420-CR working on Windows Server 2016? I keep getting the error:
This device cannot start (Code 10)
I have tried several different versions of drivers.
I think the eBay description was wrong - these use SAS1 expanders at 3Gb/s not 6Gb/s. See my other post here: https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/lsi-sas9200-16e-slow-performance-using-8-drives.27454/
I'm new to DAS hardware so am not sure whether this is acceptable. For spinning...
Thanks for your patience. I am obviously still learning, and have much more to learn.
The DAS has two ESM modules. Each ESM has two ports (one IN and one OUT, like you mentioned).
Is it possible to run two cables to the DAS to double throughput?
HBA Port #1 ==> DAS ECM #1 (IN)
Now I'm really scratching my head. Any clues? EBay listing shows 6GB/s (which obviously isn't trustworthy). However IBM's website contemplates both 3 and 6GB/s speeds.
Also from IBM's website: IBM - IBM System Storage EXP3000 Express - Specifications -

These are SAS drives. Below is SMART:

I don't think a 47 ohm resistor would do anything. The fan is 12Vdc at 2.95 Amp. Assuming the "normal" operating voltage is 9Vdc at 900 mA, then I think we would need a 2 ohm resistor capable of dissipating a little over 1W. Do you agree?
I can't seem to find anything on ebay with that...
Overview: My LSI card in IT mode tends to slow when more than 8 drives are being utilized. Is this normal behavior?
