What is a proper way to connect a LSI 9400 and a Silverstone SDP12 Device Bay


First off, Raid Controllers and a lot of enterprise gear are, for myself, new toys to tinker with. Secondly, LSI 9400 is probably overkill for Freenas and the current equipment. Lastly, how do i get NVME drives connected via an Silverstone SDP12 and connected with a LSI LSI00404 to work properly?

Whats the best way for these to connect?

Samsung 970 Pro

So many FreeNas Videos but there isn’t much info on LSI 9400. Please advise.

Also, the LSI 9400 is flashed to Mixed Mode for now.


I have a feeling but am no expert but that HBA probably does not hook up to consumer grade nvme. There are probably enterpise grade nvme drives with a sas connector or some special breakout cable that it uses to connect to.


The Silverstone item only supports one nvme drive


From what I gather I need a special Cable and a different enclosure(?).
