I'm confused by the wording here, can you not do controller based hardware RAID with drives that are attached to an expander?Well, some would argue that they would want the SATAs directly connected to each port - no expander. I personally subscribed to this club (e.g. I want the option to do RAID) and got my two IBM M1015s that I flashed to the LSI firmware, ready for this day. That's 2x8 ports per card, 16 total.
post the pic...Hi Guys,
I just got a rack and while testing out the mounting this chassis with it's rails I noticed that the right top "hooks" on both outer rails at the front are bent in and won't sit in the square hole. The bottom hook in the front and the back two hooks are fine so it's only the top one for some reason.
Is this an easy fix, and if so, how would I bend these back out? I have no problem doing this myself, I just want to make sure I'm not going to break off the hook or warp some other part of the rail.
