    Some more testings:
    Right ESM works with Left ESM plugged out.
    But the opposite doesn't apply, Left ESM doesn't work without right ESM.
    It doesn't detect any drives with Left ESM alone.

    I thought they're supposed to be redundant?
    Tried switching cable and it was ok so it's not cabling issue.

    SATA drives are not dual ported. So they only show up on one controller.

    Finally figured out the cause...
    my new drive has shorter length than the older ones.. no wonder it didn't detect it cause it's not even plugged in!
    never new they had different size though..
    i moved the caddy screw higher and now it's working :)
    Kudos to rahvin9999 for helping me tracking the cause.

    Haha i always check to make sure the drive end is even with the end of the drive caddy. No wonder we couldn't figure it out

    Just tried another 10tb from hgst and it had the same short length.. guess newer hdds are shorter now..
    Btw.. has anyone measured using wattmeter how many watt does this thing need at full or at least half full drives?
    Im building a custom ups and i'd like to buy the accu according the watt needed.

    Edit : Hmm mine runs at 240-250 Watt at 220v, at 13 drives..
    assuming each drive needs 10 watts max, (HGST 12tb needs 8w)
    safe to say add 470 watts? That's roughly 700-800 watt

    If the JBOD is conneted to a HBA/SAS controller (LSI3008) on startup, the fans will stay at 100% RPM. Does anyone know of a work around aside from unplugging the HBA ahead of booting the JBOD?

    So as some may have seen I had mentioned in another thread that I had found some new old stock on those.
    Seller had a total 4 complete + 1 partial available. The 4 complete systems are gone (2 hopefully @Emanuele who had voiced interest just recently, 2 to me) but a partial one still would be available.

    Price would be 350 + VAT +p&p,

    this is the description
    HGST 4U60 JBOD, 4U, 60x 3,5"/2,5" disks, 2x SAS QSFP+ 12Gb/s ports, dual SAS module, 40 disk carrier, no HDD

    • HGST 4U60 12G SAS-3 JBOD Storage System 4U, 60-bay Rackmount Enclosure with 60-SAS Port Backplane
    • (40) 3.5" SAS-3/SATAIII/SSD hot-plug hard drives hard disk carriers for 3,5" HDDs
    • 2x Hot-swappable SAS-3 Interface Modules (SIM) with LSI SAS Expander
    • 2x 12Gb/s SAS QSFP+ external ports per SIM Modul
    • N+1 redundant fans (fans integrated in PSU)
    • (2) 1650W Platinum high efficiency redundant PSU 200-240VAC
    • 1x Set 19" Rack Rail Kit
    • 1x Power and SAS cable management arm kit
    • 24 Months rest limited vendor warranty
    I am not affiliated with the seller, its an established company in Germany.
    I will provide the sellers email address on request so not going to be involved in this at all.
    Just told them I'd see if anyone I'd knew wants the last one;)

    @Rand__ yes, the seller will ship today, I'll leave feedback here when I receive them ;)

    If someone is not going to fully populate the storage (i.e. ssd jbod + some HDDs) this is a great price.
    The seller also sells the cables, which are very difficult to find out...
    Does anyone know where to find host to storage cable - mini SAS HD (SFF-8644) to QSFP+ (SFF-8436), at a reasonable price?

    Isn't 1 meter too short, counting the cable management arm? If I can ask, which configuration will you be running on those storage?
    Have you already received/tested the cables?

    As I said I am getting the ones from the seller (2m). On the link other lengths are available too, so just pick what oyu need.

    No cables, no boxes yet ;)
    But my fault, too slow moving with the payment.

    If it was an Ebay auction I would have included a link;) I'll pm you the seller's email address.

    If any of the others I sent it to bought it it would be great if he/she could update this thread so that we know its gone.

    Juding by this post operating SAS and SATA disks in the same enclosure appears to be safe, even though the manual states it shouldn't be done. Is anyone using such a mixed setup and can confirm it's working reliably over longer periods?

    Yes i have mixed sas and sata drives and have no issue (4 sas drives, 26 sata) I have been using it this way for over two years. Only difference is the sas drives show up twice in my drive list due to being seen on both sas backplanes which is normal and i just pick one in my debian omv drives list
