connect SSD P4600 2TB via U.2 on backplane

Hi Intel Community,

i hope you can help me. I want to connect a P4600 U.2 SSD (2TB) on my Sata/SAS/Nvme Backplane.

But it does not work:

Mainboard: Intel® Server Board S2600WF0

Backplane: F2U8X25S3PHS

Raidcontroller: BC MegaRAID 9361-8i PCIe x8

+ the integrated onboard Raid controller

When i connect the P4600 it flashes 1 sec. then the led is off for 20 seconds and then it is constantly back on again.

The Raid Controller does not detect the drive. Same for the onboard controler.

I have installed all the Firmwareupdates for the board and the controller. It does not appear in the raidmanager

The P4600 i have is not the model with the PCIe connector. It is the 2,5" model with an sas shaped connector.

thanks

Hello DRKMittelhessen,

 

 

Regarding your problem with the SSD 2.5 P4600 not been recognized.

 

Thank you for a detailed information on the board name and the backplane used.

 

Please download the Technical Product Specification for the https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/server-products/server-boards/R2000WF_TPS.... S2600WF0.

 

First, let me clarify that the Intel ESRT2 onboard RAID option does not support PCIe devices, this can be found in Section 7.3.1 Embedded RAID Support.

 

 

Second could you please describe to me the cable configuration connected from the backplane to the mother, if you could send me some pictures with also help.

 

 

You can find information on connection and setup on the TPS for https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/server-products/server-boards/R2000WF_TPS.... S2600WF0.

 

 

If there is anything else we can help please feel free to ask.

 

 

Best regards,

Can you recommend a Controller card (NVMe Switch???) to make the disk work ?

Hello DRKMittelhessen,

 

 

Thank you for the pictures. If you can see page 80 on the TPS for https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/server-products/server-boards/R2000WF_TPS.... S2600WF0, will show you where the NVMe drives need to be installed on the front. Page 81 will show were to connect on the back of the backplane.

 

Then on Page 92 and 93 will show you where to connect the where is connected to the motherboard. Then page 95 will show you how to configure and check the BIOS for the NVMe.

 

 

If there is anything else we can help please feel free to ask.

 

 

Best regards,
