6 x 2.5'' SAS/SATA + 4 x 2.5'' AnyBay (one processor)
See this section to understand the cable routing of 6 front SAS/SATA drives and 4 front AnyBay drives with 10 x 2.5'' backplane (Gen 4) installed.
To connect cables for a 7mm drive backplane, refer to 7mm drive backplane.
To connect power cables for a backplane for standard 2.5'' or 3.5'' drives, refer to Cable routing for backplane power.
To connect cables for M.2 drives, refer to M.2 drive backplane.
To connect signal cables for a backplane for standard 6 front SAS/SATA drives and 4 front AnyBay drives, refer to the following cable routing scenarios depending on your server configuration:
Cable routing with an SFF HBA/RAID adapter
The following tables show the mapping relationship between backplane connectors and a 16i SFF HBA/RAID adapter (Gen 3 or Gen 4).
