Can a 3GB/s HBA such as the LSI Logic SAS3801X PCI-X be used to connect to the J830S?

I was wondering whether a 3Gb/s HBA card, such as the LSI Logic SAS3801X PCI-X, could be used to connect to a VTrak J830S? I have an old SuperMicro X8DTN+ based system with PCI-X slots (all of its three PCIe solts are occupied with IBM M1015 HBAs for access to its internal drives on a BPN-SAS-846A backplane), so I was seeking a way to copy the data off more quickly by directly-attaching a VTrak J830S to it (rather than using its ethernet connection).

Hi Ned,

I could see that you have created a support case regarding the same questions. Kindly check the support case (Case ID:20180613093437S) for updates.

Hi Ned,

Only the LSI 9200 was tested with the VTrak Jx30s, but the LSI 3801 *might* work - it is a 3Gb SAS HBA with SFF-8088 ports so you could use the SAS cable that comes with the JBOD. If you have one give it a try...
