DL180G6 Disk Speed?

Hey All;

I acquired a few DL180G6 Class Servers, with the 12-Bay 3.5'' LFF Drive cage. It includes the Smart Arry 4.10, with a 256Mb Cache. It orginally was configured with the rear-mount 2 Disk cage, which I pulled, and replaced with the 2 slot riser card, and disconnected all the cables from there to the back-plane.

The problem I'm having, regardless of which disks I use, SAS/SATA, 6/3Gbps, the SMH/ACU reports a negotiated link speed of no more than 3Gbps. From what I've read, 3Gbps is the MAX supported on SATA, but the SAS (Assuming the disks themselves are 6Gbps capable, which they are), should run at 6Gbps, but nothing I do seems to get it to run at that speed. Anyone have any ideas?

See

12 disk backplane with 3Gb/s, 8 disks bp with up to 6 Gb/s.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Got it; Looks to be a Back-Plane issue. Thanks for pointing that out!
