Connecting LSI SAS9305-24I to SAS3 Backplane


Recommended Posts

Can someone help me understand, how do I connect the LSI SAS9305-24I to SAS3 Backplane?

 

The backplane, 24-port BPN-SAS3-846EL1, has 2 Primary SAS ports and 2 Secondary SAS ports.

The HBA has 6 ports

The cables recommended by Supermicro and  Broadcom are 1 SFF-8643 connector on one end and 1 SFF-8643 on the other. There are no 1 to 6 breakout cables. Am I to understand that I can plug the cable into one of the primary ports on the backplane and into any one port on the HBA to get 24 drives connected?

Thanks.
