DE6600 as JBoD

PurityControl

Recently bought NetApp DE6600 and I want to use it as JBoD connected to SuperMicro Server. Can this controller be used?

NetApp X3149-R6 NVRAM8R Dual Port Pci-E Controller 110-00274+B0

I was wondering what can I do to manage this?

Any help will be appreciated.

You may find more support in /r/techsupport (not really /r/netapp) on Reddit. I'm not sure if that will work, but I think one is from FAS. You list two different parts there I believe. The X3149 is a PCI-e card that NVRAM is added to it looks like. I don't think this will work, but you will need a SAS HBA to connect (from what I've seen). I've never tried this and have zero experience.

Thanks.

Yes it seems that it needs SAS HBA controller.

I'm not sure which one is right though asI need low profile one.

I have read few things and they have managed to do JBoD through Fibre Channel as well.
