I'm configuring a HP ProLiant ML350e Gen 8 server for a client, and I would like to set it up with three RAID 1 arrays, - one for the boot and (80GB SSD), two for application and user/company data (2 x 500GB), and two for backup (2x 2TB)
The on-board Array controller is a B120i with six SATA ports. I've installed the pairs for system and data in slots 1-4 which are recognized, and I was able to create the corresponding arrays. However the 2TB drives in slots 5 and 6 did not appear to be powered up, and as such, I was unable to set them up.
I have seen that the card holding the SATA connectors is powered and has two connector ports, only one of which is connected via a cable connected to the mobo. I have looked for. and have not been able to find what I assume will be a riser card and corresponding cable to connect to the second port and connect the drives. Please see the photo included for what I see.
Am I correct in my assumptions? And if so can anyone identify the parts needed to connect drives 5 and 6 so that they can be used?
Thanks so much. I've looked for a day and have not seen what I need. B120i.JPG
