Re: Dell PowerEdge 2950 SAS to SATA
Well, it looks like my previous post got "mysteriously" deleted. I had tried to post a chat session log I had with technical support earlier this evening where the technician emphatically said that the interposer boards were required on the 2950 when a SATA drive was installed (I asked him to verify that after his initial response and he said that he had verified that answer as correct). I have no idea why the post was deleted, but given that Dell won't sell the caddies or interposer cards without you buying a drive, I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Anyway, tech support's position is that the interposer board is required and caddy model CC852 is required for SATA drives in the 2950 because the 2950s all come with SAS backplanes. If anyone needs more information please send me a private message with your email address and I'll give you more details.
