I haven't used this type of connection before.
I have a couple of systems that I have to build that needs to be added to expand our storage. The setup goes like this:
One system with 2 ssd's (which I will load the os on) connected to another system (via molex) with 12, 3.8 TB drives.
I want to raid the 12 drives (raid 5) and create one virtual disk.
I can't see the drives at all prior to loading the OS on it. I decided to load the OS and I can see the 12 drives (sde, sdf, sdg. etc....)
The system with the OS does have an LSI raid adapter but when I launch that utility I don't see the other drives on the other system.
Could someone please help me out. I have feeling there is another piece of hardware missing. I'm just too familiar with this setup.
