    SAS Connector - does anyone know what this is?

    I've got an extension box here which is meant to support dual SAS / SATA drives.

    Only problem is, I'm really not sure what connector is used on the device itself.

    It looks like this:



    Does anyone know what connector should be going into it? My only guess so far is that it's a variant of SFF-8484 but struggling to substantiate that.

    Ultimately I need to hook it into an SFF-8087.

    That looks more like the back side, What's on the other side?

    It is the back side. On the other are standard SAS / SATA mounts for the disks.

    What I need to do is connect the backplane to the RAID card.

    I got lucky.

    Searched Google for a3c40110376b, which told me it was for a Fujitsu Primergy TX300.

    Used Google Image Search to look for Primergy TX300 sas cable, which brought me to this.

    Used Google Image Search to look for T26139-Y3971-V1, which resulted in this.

    I will keep my fingers crossed that it actually works.

    Dang, thoroughly out-googled on this one!

    And yeah, me too! Just ordered one from Germany, will see how it goes.
