    Supermicro Backplane Compatibility (CSE-827)

    Does anyone know if the backplane (BPN-SAS-827HD) in the SuperServer 6026TT-HDTRF (2U, 12-bay LFF, 2-node) can be replaced with a backplane (BPN-SAS-826A) for the CSE-826 chassis? The Twin backplane uses proprietary connections to connect 6 drives to each motherboard. I'd prefer SFF-8087 ports...

    LSI 9207-8i, Expander and 24 SSDs (Beginner Confusion)

    I have an LSI 9207-8i card (2 ports) connected to an expander (Supermicro SAS-216EL, 3 ports) via a single mini-SAS cable, which is connected to a 24-drive backplane (Supermicro BPN-SAS-216EB, able to hold a 2nd expander). There should eventually be 24 SATA3 SSDs connected to this backplane...

    New member, new build, need advice

    OK! wow.... what a great community STH is. I wish I would have known about this place sooner. I have been doing a lot of reading the past week. This has led to the typical highs, feeling like I know what I want, and lows, feeling like I know nothing about what is out there. That being said, I am...

    Are drives hot swappable without a BackPlane?

    So, I see chassis that are often advertised as "Hot Swappable" which, typically means they have a backplane of sorts. My question is, are drive not connected to a back plane hot swappable? For example, if I have drive connected to my Perc H310, using SSH 8087 to SATA breakout cables, would...

    Supermicro sc836 - bpn-sas-836tq vs bpn-SAS2-836el1 backplanes

    I am trying to decide between purchasing an sc836 barebones chassis, one with the Bpn-sas-836tq backplane and the other with a Bpn-SAS2-836el1 backplane for about the same price. I will be connecting either backplane to a SAS2 HBA and still haven’t decided on SAS or SATA drives so I would like...

    Culprit: slightly bad LSI card - was: SC847 45-bay JBODs rear backplane issues - anyone else?

    Edit / Conclusion: These errors were intermittently being logged against drives in a SAS expander JBOD for writes only due to a mostly good, but partly bad port on an LSI SAS9206-16e card running IT mode P20.00.07 firmware: mpt2sas_cm1: log_info(0x31120303): originator(PL), code(0x12)...

    Looking for a solution to add more storage.

    My current build: SuperMicro X9DRL-IF (ATX Form Factor) 2x Xeon 2660 Ubuntu Server 16.04.2 3x8TB 6x6TB (I also have a spare 6x3TB I want to use again) This is stuffed into a full ATX tower with no more room to grow. Every 3-4 months I'm hoping to add 3x8TB to the build. This build has...

    FS: Icy Dock MB674SPF-B Tray-less 4 in 3 SATA I & II Internal Raid Backplane $40 OBO

    Selling 1 Icy Dock MB674SPF-B backplane (used) fits in three 5.25" bays and officially accommodates four 3.5" Sata I/II hard drives (I found that it supports 6 gb/s Sata drives fine - even though it doesn't state that in it's specifications). I've used this backplane for a few years with...

    Enterprise SAS and Consumer SATA on the Same Backplane?

    I have a bunch of consumer SATA disks but I need more space and I'm looking at enterprise disks. The price premium to go enterprise isn't that much at the larger sizes. I have a Supermicro SC847 with SAS3 backplanes. My HBA is an m1015 but I plan to upgrade to an SAS3 HBA at some point. My...

    UART connector pinout/adapter for Supermicro SAS backplanes?

    All Supermicro 8x6 backplanes have a 4-pin UART connector which should allow some kind of CLI access and possibly SMP. Is anyone aware of the pinout and whether a level converter is required, before I have to dig out my multimeter and the backplane to figure things out?
