I have 6 enclosures, 3 on bus 0 and 3 on bus 1. I am adding a 7 one now and was wondering does it matter which bus I connect it to, either bus 0 or bus 1?

Not really providing the workloads are reasonably well-balanced across the two back-end buses. If, for example, Bus 0 has a heap of SSDs on it and Bus 1 does not, I'd add the new DAE to Bus 1. If the SSD population is reasonably well balanced, I wouldn't get too concerned.

Incidentally, these are all 15 drive DAEs, yes?
