comment Can I mix SAS and SATA2 drives on one controller?
I think I've researched it myself. There's only one SFF x4 connector, but the backplane is sometimes also referred to by IBM as an Expander etc., has a CPU and stuff, and seems to act as an Expander. These systems have 6 disk slots... So thanks, ewwhite.

Thanks! Your answer indicates that the built-in backplane IBM 44W3110 (or similar) then works as an expander, as the connector seems to be the 4-lane one, and the build-in raid card ServeRaid 8k-l I'm replacing doesn't seem as capable as the newer Adaptec 2405. -- Does that make sense?

Just a short follow up: the Adaptec is a "4 channel" raid card, that means 4 raid channels (as I assumed above), right. It can handle these 6 disks, can it?
