Hello thx for the fast answer,

i tried to shorten the pin 1+2 with an jumper, was the same didn't start.

I think yes that the PMBus is correct connected, i think you cant put it in in the wrong way.

i am at the moment at work, i will make dome pictures when iam at home.

My guess is that if you power the board and see the network led lights, that you probably just don't have the power switch jumpers set right. Be careful on the numbering and direction of the pins, it's easy to get confused and pick the wrong ones.

Thx for the replys,

it was my own, foult, sometimes you have to be a bit patiently.

you have to wait that the LED LE1 starts to blink, then the board is working.

Now all works fine.

Thx again

Andy

Move the other metal stands that come on the bottom of the SM chassis to where you need them :) That's always what I do atleast.

I think he means the mounting plate or what it is under the board and not the mounting standoffs

I thought the mounting bracket was only for the SAS3 expander chassis types and not the SAS2 ones...or was it the other way round....can't remember now. It's not dreadfully important, just mount it however you feel, with or without the bracket in such a way that it can't come loose or get in your way later :)

When I installed mine - I just mounted it using one of the existing standoffs where I had removed the cb2 board (so it wasn't screwed down through all of the holes). I found the pictures but I'm having a hard time uploading from my phone while I'm out and about - I can upload when I get back to the hotel later if there is interest

I would appreciate that. I'm converting an SC846 to a JBOD, so all I've got right now are the motherboard standoffs. Seeing how SM does it would be a decent help.

edit: Update! Got my board in, and it does NOT include the mounting bracket. I had to use two of the unusually-sized standoffs that came with my SC846 (That go in the "A" and "P" holes) to mount the board. It's only secured by two screws right now... Not ideal.

Apologies for the post necro! I never posted my install images from when I converted my JBOD from the CB2 to the CB3. Someone messaged me about my install and I wanted to share these in case someone finds them helpful. Hopefully these help folks out - pics are both before and after I swapped the board out.
