4 x 3.5'' U.3 drives with 4 x 3.5'' AnyBay backplane

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 power cables for a backplane for standard 2.5'' or 3.5'' drives, refer to Backplane power cable routing.

To connector cables of RAID flash power modules, refer to RAID flash power modules.

To connect the signal cable, refer to the following cable routing scenario:

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).
