Guys,

Does the super Micro require a special SFF to SFF cable?

It works when I use the SFF to fanout cable, but not SFF-SFF. My Case Norco 24 dive bays, has SFF plugs.

 

The Acera 1222 works great, once you realise you have to set the drives to passthrough mode...DOH!

Think I will pick up another cheap used one.

should not need any special cable.  I have used a lot of the SASLP cards and mostly with the SFF cables from monoprice.com

To connect your motherboard SATA ports to a Norco backplane that uses SSF-8087 connectors you need a reverse breakout cable, as opposed to the forward breakout cable you use to connect a controller card to individual SATA disks.

EDIT: Just realized you might have meant a Supermicro controller card, not a Supermicro motherboard.
