  16. Yes!  Thank you SO much!  I was totally stuck, and you helped me get past a fundamental misunderstanding.  I assumed the expander card communicated through the PCI slot.. and I should leave existing cabling in place, and just add a cable connecting the new (second) cage to the expander card.  I didn't realize the expander needed to get connected to the existing CONTROLLER.  Also my drive cage and expander came with eight different sets of cables… and I was having trouble figuring out which one to use.  As soon as you got to the part about "UNPLUG your existing cables from original cage to the controller" my mental light bulb turned on.  Ah Ha!!  Glory be.  Thanks so much!

  17. Just wanted to say thank you.  Had to do this and it was exactly what I needed.

  18. Thanks for the info, question, any risk to the original (cage 1) raid array when you add the second drive cage and new drives? We don't want to loose the data/config on the original drives. Thanks

  19. Hi,
