Help Identifying this Supermicro 24bay (cse846) backplane


Recommended Posts

I am buying this, but am having the seller check which backplane is installed. He does not know much about it and can't seem to locate the number of the backplane for some reason. I think he simply has no idea what/where to look.


I pretty much just want to be sure it is one of the SAS2 backplane/expanders and not the BPN-SAS-846A backplane. I'm not terribly familiar with them and never had one in person, so I can't tell from the pics. 


This is the cable that is in the picture: https://store.supermicro.com/supermicro-internal-to-external-minisas-2-ports-low-profile-cascading-85cm-cable-cbl-0352l-lp.html

It's an expander backplane, you can see the back of the expander chip and also the sticker for the SAS address, but it could be the SAS1 model, and those will be limited to 2TB disks, you should contact Supermicro, since the serial is visible they should be able to identify the model.
