I want to replace the PERC S100 RAID Controller with a PERC6i to be able to use 4 SAS harddrives instead of only SATA drives. What exactly do I need for this, what I've got so far:
- PERC6i PCIe x8 card.
- 4 x SAS 300GB 15000rpm drives
Some questions I have
- Do I need a different backplane to accomodate the SAS disks? If so, what kind of backplane?
- Do I need a special cable to hookup the PERC6i with the backplane? If so, what kind of cable?
