I know this issue is not completely new but didn't see it when I searched around the forum.
I bought 6 mini SAS cables (SFF-8087) for 3 supermicro aoc-mv8 controller cards. I don't have backplane in my Lian Li D8000 case.
When I connected those cables from controller cards to individual hard drives, Windows (and supermicro controller cards) didn't recognise any hdd connected.
A friend of mine told me (over the phone) that I used wrong cables. I got confused here.
How do I know if it's a "forward" or "reverse" SAS breakout cable? They definitely look same, right?
Thank you for your reply.
