LSI 9240-8i + break out cables - no drives showing?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Wanted to ask if anyone has had break out cables not work with their raid card?

I have a LSI 9240-8i, it was in a Chen. case with a back plane, that works great, all ports, all 8 pick up drives and can be configure for raid. Latest firmware all updated and ready to go.

I now change the card to use some break outs as i moved the card to a dual 2011v2 board.

SFF-8087 to 4X SAS/SATA Reverse Breakout Cable
http://secure1.ncix.com/products/?sku=48798

Now I presume SFF-8087 is SFF-8087 and even though they are labeled from Norco they should work (not like Norco makes raid cards)

How ever they don't. I bought 2 of them and none of the 8 connections pick up any drives on them.

I tried from my new 3TB toshiba's to a Patriot 256G SSD to a 320G 2.5 laptop drive...

All those drives work fine on the back plane set up, but not with the break out cable...

This is tested from when the card boots it does not show any drives being picked up, to being confirmed in Windows under the Raid manager.

Is there anything I am missing in order for the cables to work. I don't believe there is, but it is late and i am annoyed they don't work as i am sure NCIX will charge me for returning them.

Wondering do i flash to 9211 just to see, or try and return the cables and try other one's from elsewhere..
