Did you use a 2.5" inch SATA drive? Looks like there's room for a SATA data/power cables to go under the SCA backplane <or through a hole filed/milled in the metal enclosure
>, but it looks like a 3.5" drive mounted in the sled would be too close to the SCA backplane.
Slid the SCA backplane entirely out, dropped in the original boot disk from the Fuel.
The scsi cable which used to connect to that backplane now connects directly to the boot disk. Added a two-to-one power splitter to a SATA disk in the other slot with a longish sata cord and away we go. I lost the hard drive activity lights doing it this way but those are mostly decorative anyhow. It would be possible to connect them elsewhere, I'm sure, but too much trouble for something that's going to be in a closed rack anyhow.
One thing I do notice is that MPlayer running remotely crashes. It starts up fine on the Origin, displaying on the Fuel, but as soon as it starts to play it locks up hard. Playing the same file over the network from MPlayer on the Fuel works fine. Anyone else with a similar setup care to test that ?
Should put a gigE card in also I suppose but so far the normal 10/100 connection is good enough.
Origin 300's are getting to be cheap. So far I like it.
