Cable routing for backplane power

Use the section to understand the power cable routing for both front and rear drive backplanes.

  • The backplanes your server supports require power connection. This section singles out the power connection from signal connection for better understanding.

  • For the locations of backplane power connectors on the processor board, see Processor-board connectors for cable routing for details.

  • For more information about backplanes supported and their connectors, see Drive backplane connectors.
