RS3DC080 with RES3TV360 issues

Hi community,

I bought an RS3DC080 and connected both ports to a RES3TV360 Expander with Windows Server 2012 R2 on a SuperMicro Board.

Issue 1:

In Intel RAID Web Console 2 it only shows that the disks are connected trough one connector port. How can i enable Dual Linking? In Expander documentation there is mentioned that it could be 8 in and 24 out Devices / Channels.

Issue 2:

After a reboot I get "Phy is bad on enclosure" errors on console. Raid is functioning normal. How can i disable this?

Issue 3:

In controller documentation there is stated, that only 16 Devices / Drives per enclosure are supported. Why there the expander can support 24 drives?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards

Sven

I would recommend reviewing the information about the cabling required for your expander card on our http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/res2sv240/sb/CS-033969.htm RAID controller to Expander Port Connection Information to see the breakdown of the ports.

I would probably contact http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/contactsupport Intel Customer Support to make sure they review the logs of the RAID controller to make sure that there are no issues in the background with your array.

I am including the table that shows the specifications of the RAID controller. I hope this would cover your question.

This information is taken from our http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/rc-rs3wc080/sb/12gbs_raid_controllers_ug.pdf Technical Product Specifications for the controller.
