CalDigit HDElement enclosure with LSI controller
on Nov 14, 2012 at 11:07:24 pm

I'm building a RAID from some "spare" parts. I have an LSI MegaRAID SAS 9280-8e and two CalDigit HDElement SAS enclosures.

My question is, does the CalDigit enclosures require a CalDigit PCI controller + CalDigit software? My LSI controller has yet to recognize the HDDs, there can be many reasons for this, I'm just starting the troubleshooting.

But I notice the CalDigit products are only sold as a system
+ there's an extra cable called "environmental monitor" that I've not seen outside of CalDigit + dipswitches to assign each enclosure to the proper CalDigit controller port. I had assumed these enclosures would support standard SAS but maybe you know otherwise? (before I spend too much time troubleshooting)

Confirmed. CalDigit enclosures only work with CalDigit controller cards.
