    RAID controller does not see expander

    dwisehart

      Hello,
      My Intel RT3WB080 RAID controller says it supports port expanders,  but when I plug in a CFI-B53PM 5 Port Backplane (SiI3726), the  controller only reports one drive.  

      I have tried lots of options in the RAID BIOS pre-boot command tool  and commands like -pdGetNum -a0 only find one drive, even after setting the option to expose enclosure drives.  A cheapo Adaptec  controller that won't work for my application sees all five  drives just fine.  Any suggestions?

      Thanks,
      Daniel
