Figure 41. PCIe3 LP 4 x8 SAS Port Adapter
Adapter FRU number
000MH910 (Designed to comply with RoHS requirement)
Connector plug part number
00FW784 (The connector plug is installed in an empty port and prevents damage to that port
whenever a cable for the adjacent port connectors is plugged-in or removed.)
I/O bus architecture
PCIe 3.0 but compatible to PCIe 2.0 or PCIe 1.0 slots.
For more information about slot priorities, maximums, and placement rules, see PCIe adapter
placement rules and slot priorities (http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/POWER9/
p9eab/p9eab_mtm_pciplacement.htm) and select the system that you are working on.
Specific AE1 or YE1 SAS cable features with new narrow HD connectors are used to attach the
adapter to SAS devices.
SAS device attachment requires specific cables that are provided with the subsystem or device
features that are being attached. See Serial attached SCSI cable planning.
v Four external mini SAS HD 4x connectors provide attachment of SAS devices
v SAS Serial SCSI Protocol (SSP) and Serial Management Protocol (SMP)
v Concurrent firmware update
v Removable media device (DVD and SAS tape) are supported in a single controller
configuration only and cannot be combined with disk devices attached to the same adapter.
Removable media is not supported in multi-initiator and high availability (dual storage IOA)
