This isn't for an unraid setup at the moment, but I'll be making an unraid server down the road. Figured this was a good place as any to ask since a lot of my google searches were pointing me back to these forums.
I'm having issues with SAS drives in Norco SS-500 hot swap cages. I can't get the SAS drives to read through the backplane. I'm running to a MegaRAID SAS 9270-8i w/ an Int-MS-1M4S Mini-SAS to 4SATA cable. Sata drives will work, and I've verified the SAS drives are good by using a Mini-SAS to SAS fan out cable direct the the raid card. I'm not sure what cable I need to connect to the Sata ports on the back of the Norco SS-500 as the Int-MS-1M4S ones appear to not work with SAS drives.
Then I was reading a few older threads on here about how Norco hot swap bays were burning up larger drives. Was this issue ever corrected? All 4 of my Norco SS-500's were purchases 2014 and the one I have pulled out at the moment is stamped FH-MZ-3-5 2012.08.08 Ver: 1.2, currently have 8 x HGST He8 8tb 5V 800mA 12V 660mA I'm looking to use in the SS-500's. If I have to pivot to Supermicro 5 in 3's to avoid risk I will, although I'd rather save $400 if possible.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
