This section lists the required components for server models with 1 x SAS/SATA 2.5-inch hot-swap backplane.

Note
  • Connections between connectors; 11, 22, 33, ... nn

  • When routing the cables, ensure that all cables are routed appropriately through the cable guides and cable clips.

  • Y-cables are shown as individual cables in the illustrations for each backplane.

  • Connect cables prioritizing Gen 4 RAID adapters.

  • For more information on the cables that are used, see Backplane cable list.

This configuration contains the following combinations:
