Dell SAS 6i to H700 upgrade problem

Hi, I have 3 Dell R610. They all had SAS 6i cards in them which I upgraded to H700 RAID cards. Each had no OS.

Using to 300GB SAS 10K drives, I was able to create a RAID 1.

I was able to load Server 2012R2 without a hitch. Installed Dell Open Manage, no errors or anything on the RAID CARD. However, in the log it does say:

"The storage SAS A cable is not connected or improperly connected."

I've upgraded each box's firmware/driver from BIOS, BMC, RAID, everything, using the latest SUU.

No matter what I do, I can't get an error to disappear that shows up on the front LED:

"E1a14 sas cable failure check connection"

Also when the server boots up, the same error comes up about the SAS cable being disconnected.

The server works fine but I want the error message to go away!

Oh my god, I'm an idiot. Figured it out. Switched around the SAS connections on the H700 and the error went away.
