Been using DrivePool and Scanner for about 2 years now in a big tower which holds 14 drives, all of them in one big pool. I'm getting close to filling these and thinking about going to another tower using an LSI 9201-16e SAS HBA in IT Mode to connect to another cabinet housing additional drives. Does anyone have any experience with this configuration using DrivePool and Scanner? It would look something like this: LSI 9201-16e ---> External Mini SAS 26pin (SFF-8088) Male to Mini SAS 26 (SFF-8088) cable ---> Dual Ports Mini SAS SFF-8088 To SAS 36Pin SFF-8087 PCBA Female Adapter ---> SAS 36Pin (SFF-8087) Male to 4 SATA 7Pin female Cable ---> SATA drive I'm not too concerned about the configuration working by itself but wonder about how DrivePool and Scanner will see those drives over the SAS connection. Can I just add them to the big pool I have in the main cabinet? Will Scanner work as well over that SAS connection? Thanks for any comments or suggestions.
