comment How to use SAS Expander with RAID card?
Ok, I understand that, but will the RAID card see all 6 SAS even if they are not directly connected ? Everything is linked not by the SAS cable but by the motherboard's BUS ? So from what I understand, I connect all 6 SAS into the Expander and nothing in the RAID card ? From my PoV it doesn't mae sense because the RES2SV240 draw only power from the PCI lane. The RES2SV240 act like a switch and the RAID card has a router from what I think and understand.

Ok so like I said, even the RAID card goes into it. I made a super picture of it: imagebam.com/image/f05f9a273907161

Ok so if I understand correctly, the expander doesn't need to be connected to the RAID card, only the PCI port ?

Let say I get the RES2SV240 Expander and I get a RAID controller with 2 8087 port. All I have to do is connect 1 backplane to my RAID controller, connect all my others 5 backplanes to my Expander and the port left on the Expander will connect on my RAID card. In the end, my RAID card will see all 24 drivers and I will be able to use RAID on them assuming there's no compatiblity issues ?

The 24 bays enclosure I mentionned above use SFF-8087 Mini SAS connectors (on the backplane). All I am missing is a way to put them in RAID and link them to my motherboard. However, we do not want to pay 1500$ for a good raid card and cables. My boss want me to keep it under 750$ for the RAID card, Expander, cables, whatever. RAID1 will be required here so I do not need a fancy RAID card.

Yes, we have one enclosure. I was thinking of putting the RAID controller with 1 external 8088 and the SAS Expander with 6 8087 Internal + 1 External 8088 and link both with 8088 cable using both external. I haven't found any hardware that would do this from the inside... I know about nothing about SAS and still reading on it.

Thank for your reply. In my case, I was thinkg puting the expander and the raid card within the same unit and attach the cable from the outside using the external port. I'll look into this article and the case you show'd me. We have choose the other one because it was super cheap (400$, 450$ with shipping and taxes).
