Ya, I got a chance tonight to check it, and it appears to have linked at 6Gb/s here is a screen shot from inside of the 9265 bios, I should also mention it is a C6220 II chassis, so not sure on a v1 system if you would have the same results or not.
What "luck" are you hoping to find? C6220 does not support 6G speeds unless you come up with a clever way of running really long break out cables from the rear of the node directly to the backplane. C6220 II is a different story, it has native 6G support. This is due to how Dell designed the nodes.Anyone have any luck with these with an HBA and SATA6G SSD's?
Any recommendation on which cable is best for 3 x SATA to SAS for a HBA?Thanks for posting back. I learned earlier today after skimming even more owner's manuals that the 6220 II motherboard is more like the 6100: it has ports near the front edge where the node plugs into the midplanes, similar to how the 6100 has an interposer extender. If you use an HBA then you use the ports near the front edge rather than the onboard plugs near the rear I/O. This does enable 6.0 Gbps links. They really dropped the ball on 6220 gen I.
Can anyone that successfully installed a TCK99 in their C6220s enlighten me to the model of the bridge card? I tried using the C6100 but it seems that it a little too long so it raises the height of each node to a level where it bumps into the chassis or the node above. Such information is extremely elusive online.
No. I ended up sending back the full mesh to the seller to swap with 4 pieces of the ones with holes. It's one whole piece. The bigger problem was that the cards didn't line up even with the new mesh. They kinda stick upwards. Works fine for the top 2 nodes but will have some problems sliding in the bottom 2.Josh - Did you ever figure out the proper bridge card? I am going to be in the same boat. I just assumed it would fit.
To clarify, the mesh with holes from the c6100 would not work with the c6220?No. I ended up sending back the full mesh to the seller to swap with 4 pieces of the ones with holes.
