adding second hvd10 JBOD


We currently have one HVD10 JBOD and we want to add a second.

I have two controllers on my server that presently goes from port a on the controller to port a on the back of the jobd and same for B.

DIP switches are set as follows: 1 off (down) 2-5 on (UP)

If I want to daisy chain my second JBOD, do I just continue Port a on HVD 1 to Port A on HVD2? and terminate on HVD 2?

Do I also set the dip switches the same or differently?

You need to configure split bus. So you can daisy chain a half HVD10 to another half box.
