i am just testing the waters with some cheap sas components.
- card: HP Smart Array P410 1GB FBWC 6G SAS SATA PCIe x8 Raid Controller 572532-B21
- cables: Mini SAS 36P SFF 8087 to SFF-8482 connectors with SATA power cable WR5
- hdds: 3 Seagate Constellation ES.2 3TB \
amazingly the sockets fit together, the card boots, but when i try to set up logical drives says no physical drive found.
what i am missing? components not compatible? broken cables/connectors (i tried 2 cables, on both board’s sockets, diff HDDs on diff cables extensions)
i asked over reddit also, i do hope to get to the bottom of this.
here are some pictures, but the angle is not that great:
