You have to replace it with the standard backplane or use a NAS. I am about to attempt the same. I gave up a while back. No problem instig8r! Was just curious — I have gone ahead and made the leap to ESXi 6. No issues deploying at all. Pretty happy I moved off of ESXi 5. Just wanted others to know it works.

SomeDude, could you write that up and give tips about some good configuration options? Or can you point me to another one that somebody else has done? If I have some instructions to follow, then I can tell better what I might have done wrong. No instructions needed, I did absolutely nothing special to get 6.

Installed beautifully, rebooted and came up with awareness of all hardware. Did they fix the NIC issue where the onboard ethernet would crap out after a day or so of being on? Been running all day long for 3 days anyway, no drops — time will tell, but so far so good.

Anything you did differently? I think the SAS models work if you have any of those. I hope one of these things helps you. If you look at an enlargement of that drive, you will notice that it is a SATA drive. You have to look closely to be sure. That is not an option in my El Capitan.

Guys, anybody ever get Pass-thru working with Mac hardware? Specifically on our XServes, or anything else for that matter? ESXi itself runs beautifully of course on the Mini, but not sure about pass thru. Can I replace them with the SAS versions without replacing the backplane?

The backplanes are all SAS. The ones that take actual SAS drives have been eluding my searches, or already come with drives in them and are very expensive.

Thanks for the link! Not a SAS. Are you installing SAS drives? SAS is backwards compatible. But you simply meant not to use the ones that are for non-intel boxes. Where is the orange ribbon?

Now if I could just rig the Xserve case to accept a 3rd Party Raid Controller, but the lack of additional power on the power supplies would make that messy.

They were the 1TB modules so part number I remember it was the one that had the most cross compatibility. John, are you able to get me the part number on the standard backplane? My Xserve is in a datacenter an hour away. Is the part number printed on the board somewhere? It would be great if you could post it here for anyone who needs it in the future.
