Two LSI 9361-8i cards into an HP Z820 giving issues in RAID Cards and HBAs Posted January 23 · Report reply Hey computer giant are u still around I need some advice on this subject. I too have a z820 . i brought a 9361-8i 2gb and plan on buying 4 x 12Gb/s dual port sas drives . I want to then connect them with a dual port cable : https://www.cs-electronics.com/product/12g-hd-internal-mini-sas-sff-8643-4-sff-8680/ Then I want to do exactly the same add another 9361-8i with 4 x 12Gb/s dual port hard drives but I am worried about your post on dual 9361 in the z820 and I was reading somewhere else that it will work so long as you use sas not sata. Can u confirm u were using sata hdd s with your test ?
