I have a number of Supermicro MCP-280-00024-ON dual HDD Trays. I've been thinking this would work well to hold/organize the HDD's on my home server, but the tray doesn't work with my current SAS cables/SAS card it seems.
The connection is slightly different then what I'm use to using/seeing. (Seems to have more pins) - Does any one recognize it?

Is it possible to connect these trays to a SAS cable directly, or do I need to run everything from a backplane?
The tray's were originally connected to a Supermicro BPN-SAS2-847DF Backplane.

backplane only. these are special trays for the 72 disk JBOD (bigger version of the 4U 36 disk JBOD. They will only work on those backplanes specifically.
