Raid 730 -8i

2021-03-24, 21:05 PM

Good evening,

I have a server ST250 and I need to install Server Raid 730-8i with 2gb cache

In the box there was Raid Controller and Power Module ( cache battery ) model FBU02 P.N. 49571-16.

How I Can connect power module to the Raid 730-8i?

In this manual https://thinksystem.lenovofiles.com/help/topic/storage_adapter_options/ThinkSystem_RAID_730-8i_Adapter_IUG.pdf 

I don't find where I Can connect, I share some pics

,

Thanks in advance for help

 

Manuel

Hello Manuel,

 

In general, when upgrading from software RAID to hardware RAID, you will additionally need to purchase the Thinksystem ST250 Hardware RAID Cable Kit. (4Z57A14087)

 

Please refer to PDF page 97 in the following document for more details.

https://thinksystem.lenovofiles.com/help/topic/7Y45/ST250_setup_guide.pdf

 

Also, the following document has some information for option 4Z57A14087.

Thank you,

Hello Manuel.

 

Does 730-8i adapter option include any additional cable which connected between battery and adapter? I think 1 or 2 additional cable are included in adapter box.


Battery (supercap) is available for 2G cache model, then  connector may be existed somewhere on the child card. And additional cable in adapter option may be able to convert connection between battery and adapter. 

 

Isn't it a connector?

I agree with the comment from naoym regarding cable connection and would suppose the following is additional cable in the picture Manuel posted.... My previous update was intended to provide the information to install hardware raid adapter to ST250. Thank you,

Thank you very mutch, I found it and with an adapter cable I Can connect battery to control Raid.

It is hard to do if you don't know how, I think is better for Lenovo if inside the box put some instruction :)

 

Regards !
