I just can not win...
Two sets of replacement rails showed up today. One set had the correct inner rails, the other set... Well I have no idea WTF they are supposed to be used on.
In picture, top two are correct, bottom two are wrong inners.
Ugh, it's all moot anyway. The rails they sent with the servers will not fit. The standoff pegs on the side of the server don't match up with the slots in the inner rails no matter which orientation... *sigh*
One of my rails seems to be missing a screw on the front that slots into the square hole on the rack post. Does anyone know what this sort of screw is called (see attachment) so I can find a replacement?
Not anticipating getting these cards, I already ordered two SAS 3008 mezz cards. Now I have to decide which direction to go.
But waiting is my MO lately. Still need the DDR4 to show up before I can test these.
Yep definitely the SAS 3108 with battery. Opened up the second server, same config. A little bummed they didn't have the rear SATA drive cages as I planned to use those for OS drives and leave the front for all storage. Ah well, I'm sure I can hack something up.
For the rails that come with this, do you know what the minimum distance on the rails is? My rack is 29" from post to post which is slightly shorter than the server itself, so I wanted to make sure the rails would adjust down short enough to work in my rack before buying.
