RX2620 SCSI cable layout

I have an RX2620 with a Smart Array 6400 installed. Currently, the 6400 is cabled to the disk cage at the front of the unit. However, I would prefer to use the external connectors of the 6400 to plug in some disk towers and use the internal, built-in SCSI controller for the drives in the disk cage. According to the 2620 docs I have, the connectors for the internal controller are located in the back, underneath the ILO management card. Is there some other connector I have missed? Otherwise, how is the SCSI cable normally run to connect the disk cage to the internal controller. I would prefer not to guess and run the risk of pinching a cable, or blocking airflow, or some other undesired consequence.

Re: RX2620 SCSI cable layout

I did not, since I thought it only showed how to cable the Smart Array card, not the old cabling. However, it does show enough to answer my question. Thank you. Now I just have to locate the appropriate cables.

Re: RX2620 SCSI cable layout

Is this a sa6402 or sa6404?

Keep in mind - the lower 2 disks are sharing a bus, the upper has an own bus.

Hope this helps!

Re: RX2620 SCSI cable layout

It is an sa6402.

I am aware of the bus split. That is why I want to get both internal connectors up to the front of the unit.
