Returning Merchandise for Service


A receipt or copy of your invoice marked with the date of purchase is required before any warranty service will be rendered. You can obtain service by calling your vendor for a Returned Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. When returning to the manufacturer, the RMA number should be prominently displayed on the outside of the shipping carton, and mailed prepaid or hand-carried. Shipping and handling charges will be applied for all orders that must be mailed when service is complete. For faster service, RMA authorizations may be requested online (http://www. supermicro.com/support/rma/). Whenever possible, repack the backplane in the original Supermicro box, using the original packaging materials. If these are no longer available, be sure to pack the backplane in an anti-static bag and inside the box. Make sure that there is enough packaging material surrounding the backplane so that it does not become damaged during shipping. This warranty only covers normal consumer use and does not cover damages incurred in shipping or from failure due to the alteration, misuse, abuse or improper maintenance of products. During the warranty period, contact your distributor rst for any product problems.

Overview of the SAS2-216EL1/EL2 Backplanes


The SAS2-216EL1/EL2 model backplanes consists of a SAS2-216EB backplane (A) with one or two SAS2-216EL daughter cards (B and C) mounted on the rear of the backplane. The SAS2-216EL1 model consists of the SAS2-216EB backplane (A) and one SAS2-216EL daughter card (B), mounted on the right-hand side of the backplane. The SAS2-216EL2 model consists of the SAS2-216EB backplane (A), and two SAS-216EL daughter cards (B and C), mounted on the rear of the backplane. Components on the front side of the SAS2-216EB backplane include twenty-four SAS connectors and their respecitve activity and failure LEDs. Components on the rear side of the backplane include jumpers and power and fan connectors. The daughter card's components include SAS ports, ash and expander chips, and mode select jumpers.

Chapter 1 Safety Guidelines


To avoid personal injury and property damage, carefully follow all the safety steps listed below when accessing your system or handling the components.

1-1

ESD Safety Guidelines

Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can damage electronic components. To prevent damage to your system, it is important to handle the backplane very carefully. The following measures are generally sufcient to protect your equipment from ESD. Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge. Touch a grounded metal object before removing a component from the antistatic bag. Handle the backplane and daughter cards by their edges only; do not touch the components, peripheral chips, memory modules or gold contacts. When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins. Put the backplane and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when not in use.

1-2

General Safety Guidelines


Always disconnect power cables before installing or removing any components from the computer, including the backplane.

Disconnect the power cable before installing or removing any cables from the backplane. Make sure that the backplane is securely and properly installed on the motherboard to prevent damage to the system due to power shortage.

To modify the operation of the backplane, jumpers can be used to choose between optional settings. Jumpers create shorts between two pins to change the function of the connector. Pin 1 is identied with a square solder pad on the printed circuit board. Note: On two pin jumpers, "Closed" means the jumper is on and "Open" means the jumper is off the pins.

Failover with RAID Cards and Multiple HBAs

The SAS-216EL backplane may be congured for failover with multiple HBAs using either RAID controllers or HBAs to acheive failover protection. RAID Controllers: If RAID controllers are used, then the failover is accomplished through port failover on the same RAID card. HBAs: If multiple HBAs are used to achieve failover protection and load balancing, Linux MPIO software must be installed and correctly congured to perform the load balancing and failover tasks.

Dual Host Bus Adapter


In a Dual Host Bus Conguration, the backplane connects to two Host Bus Adapters (HBA).

Supported Cascading Congurations

Cascading allows the system to access data at a faster rate by allowing several backplanes to share resources to reduce latency time. The rst backplane in a cascaded system requires a motherboard and an HBA. Other servers require a power control card with no motherboard and no HBA. For more information, specic chassis manuals are available at www.supermicro.com.
