I'm trying to install a SAS drive from a failed RAID array so that I can run SpinRite on it (last ditch effort to recover a file from the array).
I have a PowerEdge T110 ii with a PERC S300 controller and I'm trying to connect the SAS drive to it so I can boot the SpinRite CD and run a scan on it.
The PERC S300 has the wiring harness in the attached pic.
My question is in reference to the two plugs on the end (P1 and P2). Do these need to be connected to provide power to the drives through the harness or does the power come from the PERC controller itself?
If they do need to be connected - do I just connect them to the SATA power plugs coming off of the power supply? They look like they'd fit but - I'm not sure and don't want to risk frying something.
Thanks in advance! Happy Friday!!!!!
