I tried to connect but controller does not see the enclosure. It scans drives during boot longer than usual.
But it does not see any HDD. Maybe the problem is in cables. How to check that?

I have ordered 2 cables QSFP to SFF-8644. They are from China and do not look like something original.
Can cable be a problem?

Or maybe anything else I can check?

What disk size and type?
Netapp disks can have strange formating ( 520 byte sectors ).
Exos 16 TB, HGST HC320 8TB


I think I have found the reason, it looks like bad cable. It is soldered wrong.
I have found Molex wiring table and it is absolutely different pinning (only GND matches) to what I can see in this cable.
I will have to repair cable myself... or order new, though not guaranteed that new one will not be the same )
