RE: T7500 sas ports question can i use them for sata drive storage?
Some quick research indicates that the SAS standard mandates that SAS controllers be backward compatible with SATA 3Gb and newer disks. However, SATA controllers will NOT accept SAS drives. I know that's not what you're trying to do, but just wanted to make that clear.
And yes, as mentioned above, this is the wrong section of the forum.
