R410 which H700 and cables to replace SAS 6ir

Jump to solution

I have a R410 with 4 HDDs connected to a F678M backplane which has two cables going to a single connector on the H657J riser. The riser has a SAS 6Ir card in the white slot. 

As I want to switch to raid 10 I need to install a H700 raid card (or something similar). I presume that it is the adapter (not integrated or modular) type. I do not need external connectors on the card so the H800 will be overspec.

I have seen H700 part numbers W56W0, CNXVV and R374M are now replaced by XXFVX and H2R6M. Which of these two newer cards is the correct adapter ?

What cable will I need to connect from the 2 connectors on the F678M back plane to the two connectors on the H700 ?

Any info will be appreciated as there seems to be a lot of R410 configuration variations and conflicting advice out there.

Hello

I have seen H700 part numbers W56W0, CNXVV and R374M are now replaced by XXFVX and H2R6M. Which of these two newer cards is the correct adapter ?

Only the adapter version of the H700 is supported in the R410. The H700 integrated will not work in the R410 integrated slot. W56W0 and CNXVV are the adapter version. The other parts you listed are the integrated version of the H700.

What cable will I need to connect from the 2 connectors on the F678M back plane to the two connectors on the H700 ?

T871M H200/H700 LED cable
N262J H200/H700 SAS BP cable

Hi...i am a new user here. As per my knowledge only the adapter version of the H700 is supported in the R410. The H700 integrated will not work in the R410 integrated slot. W56W0 and CNXVV are the adapter version. The other parts you listed are the integrated version of the H700.
