I have the famous IBM ServeRAID M1015 / LSI SAS9220-8i HBA card that I would like to put to good use.
I also have a bunch of "enterprise" SAS 3.5" spinning hard drives.
I am trying to find out what cable(s) I need to *directly* connect up to 8 of the SAS drives to this HBA card.
Hi all -
I have a Dell R710 with the integrated PERC 6/i storage controller (8 x 2.5"). I also have the famous IBM M1015 HBA.
I would like to use the M1015 in the R710 (instead of the PERC 6/i), but I am not sure how to connect it to the built-in SAS backplane in the R710.
