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...
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...
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...
I'm struggling a bit getting my server running well and was hoping you could answer some questions that I have.
- Supermicro CSE-847 case
- Supermicro SAS2-846EL1 backplane
- Supermicro SAS2-826EL1 backplane
- Supermicro AOC-SAS2LP-MV8 HBA
- Intel i7-4770k CPU
- ASRock Z97...
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...
I'm in Northern Virginia and have a Craigslist ad going for this one. Thought I'd post it here in case there is anyone locally that might be interested.
I have a Chenbro 4U server chassis that was used for a couple of project builds. The chassis will fit EATX motherboards (it previously had a...
Good morning ppl, i had found some stuff that was prepared to be disposed in my work and i took it, cause it looks in pretty good condition.
Please, can you help me deciding what I can do with it, or what/where they can be useful for?
A little background: in my job wen we need a computer...
Hi everyone, hope you will have some clarification on this.
I have a supermicro SC846 chassis with BPN-SAS-846TQ rev 3.1 back plane (the one with a separate connector for each drive) and a few dell h310's flashed to the latest lsi 9211-8i firmware and bios.
I have a few wd reds connected to...
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...
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)...
My current build:
SuperMicro X9DRL-IF (ATX Form Factor)
2x Xeon 2660
Ubuntu Server 16.04.2
(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...
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...
I have around 20 x 500gb Samsung SM1625 SAS SSD's nad am looking for a way to use them.
I also have 2 x 6g Dell HBA's: link my plan is to use these two cards with SFF-8088 to SFF-8087 cables: link
The question is, where can I find a backplane that can support these drives in dual port...
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...
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?
