Power

 

and

 

signal

 

cables

 

for

 

internal

 

drives

 

The

 

server

 

uses

 

cables

 

to

 

connect

 

SATA-attached,

 

simple-swap

 

SATA,

 

hot-swap

 

SAS,

 

and

 

hot-swap

 

SATA

 

devices

 

to

 

the

 

power

 

supply

 

and

 

to

 

the

 

system

 

board.

connectors.)

 

Review

 

the

 

following

 

information

 

before

 

you

 

connect

 

power

 

and

 

signal

 

cables

 

to

 

internal

 

drives:

 

v

   

The

 

drives

 

that

 

are

 

preinstalled

 

in

 

the

 

server

 

come

 

with

 

power

 

and

 

signal

 

cables

 

attached.

 

If

 

you

 

replace

 

any

 

drives,

 

remember

 

which

 

cable

 

is

 

attached

 

to

 

which

 

drive.

 

v

   

When

 

you

 

install

 

a

 

drive,

 

make

 

sure

 

that

 

one

 

of

 

the

 

signal

 

cable

 

drive

 

connectors

 

is

 

connected

 

to

 

the

 

drive

 

and

 

that

 

the

 

connector

 

at

 

the

 

other

 

end

 

of

 

the

 

signal

 

cable

 

is

 

connected

 

to

 

the

 

system

 

board

 

or

 

a

 

compatible

 

adapter

 

or

 

controller

 

that

 

you

 

have

 

installed.

 

v

   

When

 

you

 

route

 

a

 

cable,

 

make

 

sure

 

that

 

it

 

does

 

not

 

block

 

the

 

airflow

 

to

 

the

 

rear

 

of

 

the

 

drives

 

or

 

go

 

over

 

the

 

microprocessor

 

or

 

DIMMs.

 

The

 

following

 

cables

 

are

 

provided:

 

v

   

Power

 

cables:

 

Four-wire

 

power

 

cables

 

connect

 

the

 

drives

 

to

 

the

 

power

 

supply.

 

At

 

the

 

ends

 

of

 

these

 

cables

 

are

 

plastic

 

connectors

 

that

 

can

 

be

 

attached

 

to

 

different

 

drives;

 

these

 

connectors

 

vary

 

in

 

size.

 

Use

 

either

 

a

 

four-wire

 

power

 

cable

 

or

 

SATA

 

power

 

cable

 

with

 

SATA

 

drives,

 

but

 

do

 

not

 

use

 

both

 

at

 

the

 

same

 

time

 

(use

 

one

 

or

 

the

 

other).

 

v

   

Signal

 

cables:

 

Signal

 

cables

 

are

 

typically

 

flat

 

cables,

 

also

 

called

 

ribbon

 

cables,

 

that

 

connect

 

SATA

 

attached,

 

SATA,

 

SAS,

 

and

 

diskette

 

drives

 

to

 

the

 

system

 

board.

 

Two

 

or

 

three

 

types

 

of

 

signal

 

cables

 

come

 

with

 

the

 

server:

 

   

SATA

 

attached

 

(for

 

optical

 

drives):

 

The

 

flat

 

SATA-attached

 

signal

 

cable

 

has

 

two

 

connectors.

 

One

 

of

 

these

 

connectors

 

is

 

attached

 

to

 

the

 

optical

 

drive,

 

and

 

one

 

is

 

attached

 

to

 

one

 

of

 

the

 

connectors

 

on

 

the

 

system

 

board.

 

   

(Optional)

 

USB

 

diskette

 

drive:

 

The

 

narrower

 

signal

 

cable

 

has

 

two

 

connectors.

 

One

 

is

 

attached

 

to

 

the

 

diskette

 

drive,

 

and

 

the

 

other

 

is

 

attached

 

to

 

the

 

connector

 

(J11)

 

on

 

the

 

system

 

board.

 

   

Simple-swap

 

SATA:

 

Simple-swap

 

SATA

 

models

 

come

 

with

 

four

 

SATA

 

cables

 

that

 

are

 

already

 

connected

 

to

 

the

 

SATA

 

connectors

 

on

 

the

 

system

 

board

 

and

 

the

 

backplate

 

at

 

the

 

rear

 

of

 

the

 

simple-swap

 

drive

 

cage.

 

   

Hot-swap

 

SAS/SATA:

 

Hot-swap

 

SAS/SATA

 

models

 

come

 

with

 

one

 

or

 

two

 

(depending

 

on

 

the

 

model)

 

data

 

cables

 

that

 

connect

 

the

 

SAS/SATA

 

controller

 

to

 

the

 

hot-swap

 

backplane.

 

The

 

data

 

cable

 

provides

 

inherent

 

connectivity

 

for

 

the

 

SAS

 

or

 

SATA

 

drives

 

that

 

the

 

server

 

supports.

 

Therefore,

 

additional

 

cabling

 

is

 

not

 

required

 

for

 

these

 

drives.

 

For

 

more

 

information

 

about

 

the

 

requirements

 

for

 

SAS/SATA

 

cable

 

and

 

connecting

 

SAS/SATA

 

devices,

 

see

 

the

 

documentation

 

that

 

comes

 

with

 

these

 

devices.
