I bought an RS3DC080 and connected both ports to a RES3TV360 Expander with Windows Server 2012 R2 on a SuperMicro Board.
In Intel RAID Web Console 2 it only shows that the disks are connected trough one connector port. How can i enable Dual Linking? In Expander documentation there is mentioned that it could be 8 in and 24 out Devices / Channels.
After a reboot I get "Phy is bad on enclosure" errors on console. Raid is functioning normal. How can i disable this?
In controller documentation there is stated, that only 16 Devices / Drives per enclosure are supported. Why there the expander can support 24 drives?
Thanks for your help.
I would recommend reviewing the information about the cabling required for your expander card on our RAID controller to Expander Port Connection Information to see the breakdown of the ports.
I would probably contact Intel Customer Support to make sure they review the logs of the RAID controller to make sure that there are no issues in the background with your array.
I am including the table that shows the specifications of the RAID controller. I hope this would cover your question.
This information is taken from our Technical Product Specifications for the controller.
