4 x 3.5'' U.3 drives with 4 x 3.5'' AnyBay backplane (two processors)
Use this section to understand the cable routing for eight U.3 drives with 4 x 3.5'' AnyBay backplane and two processors installed.
To connect cables for a 7mm drive backplane, refer to 7mm drive backplane.
To connect cables for M.2 drives, refer to M.2 drive backplane.
To connect signal cables for a backplane for standard 4 x 3.5'' U.3 drives, refer to the following cable routing scenarios depending on your server configuration:
Cable routing with an SFF HBA/RAID adapter
The following illustrations and tables show the mapping relationship between backplane connectors and an 8i or 16i SFF RAID adapter (Gen 4).
