Parts I am using:
Intel Server Chassis P4000S Family
Intel Server System P4304BT
Raid Controller RS2B040
My Question is the SPIO Connector on the 4x3.5" Backplane has 5 pins (the motherboard S1200BTL also has 5 pin SGPIO), while the SGPIO cable from the RAID Controller has only a 4-pin connector.
Do I need to connect the SGPIO Connector from the RAID Controller RS2BL040 to the Backplane SGPIO Connector?
Do I keep the motherboard SGPIO Connector Connected to Backplanes SGPIO Connector?
or, Do I have the wrong RAID Controller.
This should help you: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-033036.htm
There's a Technical Advisory for this issue here:
thank you. seem like intel didt ship the correct 4 pin to 5 pin sgpio adapter for the raid controller. they are sending me the part and i should recieve it today.
