Cable an Internal SAS HBA PCIe Card
After installing an optional internal SAS HBA PCIe card into the server, connect the
internal SAS cables attached to the hard disk drive backplane to the card.
Note - SAS HBA PCIe cards do not support SATA devices, so connecting these system
cables will disable the front-panel SATA DVD drive.
- Install the SAS HBA PCIe card in slot 0 of the server.
See Install a PCIe Card and the PCIe card documentation for instructions.
- Remove the SAS cable from the motherboard port labeled DISK0-3 and connect it
to the top HBA port.
- Remove the SAS cable from the motherboard port labeled DISK4-7 and connect it
to the bottom HBA port.
- Continue with the PCIe card installation and return the server to operation.
See Step 5 in Install a PCIe Card.
