LSI MegaRAID 9361-4i, 9361-8i or 9380-8e: cables and BBUs

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/01/25

A few links just in case you want to get a BBU or SFF cables with SAS or SATA connectors for your LSI MegaRAID adapters 9361-4i, 9361-8i9380-4i4e or 9380-8e.

If you do hardware RAID over software RAID, use a BBWC or better: FBWC.

  • RAID adapters (HBAs):
    • LSI00406 or LSI00419: LSI MegaRAID Entry 9341-4i (1 internal connector)
    • LSI00407 orLSI00408: LSI MegaRAID Entry 9341-8i (2 internal connectors)
    • LSI00414 or LSI00415: LSI MegaRAID SAS 9361-4i (1 internal connector)
    • LSI00416 or LSI00417: LSI MegaRAID SAS 9361-8i (2 internal connectors)
    • LSI00438: LSI MegaRAID SAS 9380-8e (2 external connectors)
    • LSI00438: LSI MegaRAID SAS 9380-4i4e (1 external, 1 internal connector)
  • BBU (which is actually a flash based CacheVault. So it’s FBWC, not just a BBWC):
    • LSI00418 (LSICVM02)
  • Internal cable: SFF-8643 Mini-SAS HD to …
    • LSI00400: 0.6m straight SFF-8643 to straight SFF-8087
    • LSI00401: 0.8m straight SFF-8643 to straight SFF-8087
    • LSI00402: 1.0m straight SFF-8643 to straight SFF-8087
    • LSI00403: 0.6m straight SFF-8643 to straight SFF-8643
    • LSI00404: 0.6m straight SFF-8643 to straight SFF-8643
    • LSI00405: 0.6m straight SFF-8643 to straight SFF-8643
    • LSI00409: 0.5m straight SFF-8643 to4x straight SA​TA-SB
    • LSI00410: 0.6m straight SFF-8643 to4x straight SA​TA-SB
    • LSI00411: 1.0m straight SFF-8643 to 4x straight SA​TA-SB
    • LSI00412: 0.6m straight SFF-8643 to 4x straight SATA/SAS-8482 with power
    • LSI00413: 0.4m right-angled SFF-8643 to straight SFF-8643
  • External cable: SFF-8644 Mini-SAS HD to …
    • LSI00336: 1.0m straight SFF-8644 to straight SFF-8088
    • LSI00337: 2.0m straight SFF-8644 to straight SFF-8088
    • LSI00338: 6.0m straight SFF-8644 to straight SFF-8088
    • LSI00339: 1.0m straight SFF-8644 to straight SFF-8644
    • LSI00340: 2.0m straight SFF-8644 to straight SFF-8644
    • LSI00341: 6.0m straight SFF-8644 to straight SFF-8644

dig show only the answer section: specify both +noall and +answer – via: Server Fault
