When DAS arrive:got one.
no idea how to put them to use. in the end of the say, 12 drives per 2U is not that great.
also, these, populated with heavy drives, give me an idea they are going to arrive damaged.
I guess 512/520.Are the 1TB drives included in the DAS formatted 512k or 528k?
I assume 512k / 4K, but the listing does not say. 528 drives are a headache if you don't have the right equipment.
Hardware part between SATA drive and SAS connector.Stupid question, but what is an interposer? Is it a piece of hardware or software?
It's a piece of hardware that allows some of the dual port capabilities of sas to work with an sata drive. This is important if you're using both controllers, otherwise you can use an sata drive without one.Stupid question, but what is an interposer? Is it a piece of hardware or software?
Don't worry about DAS firmware. Works? Don't touch.Are there any firmware updates for this DAS? Seems to work out of the box, but unsure whether FW can be upgraded. Can't seem to find anything.
Also - any tricks to make the fans quiet?
