Safety Information and Technical Specifications
Returning Merchandise for Service
A receipt or copy of your invoice marked with the date of purchase is required before any warranty service will be rendered. You can obtain service by calling your
vendor for a Returned Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. When returning
to the manufacturer, the RMA number should be prominently displayed on the
outside of the shipping carton, and mailed prepaid or hand-carried. Shipping and
handling charges will be applied for all orders that must be mailed when service
is complete.
For faster service, RMA authorizations may be requested online (http://www.
supermicro.com/support/rma/).
Whenever possible, repack the backplane in the original Supermicro box, using the
original packaging materials. If these are no longer available, be sure to pack the
backplane in an anti-static bag and inside the box. Make sure that there is enough
packaging material surrounding the backplane so that it does not become damaged
during shipping.
This warranty only covers normal consumer use and does not cover damages incurred in shipping or from failure due to the alteration, misuse, abuse or improper
maintenance of products.
During the warranty period, contact your distributor first for any product problems.

Front Connector and Pin Definitions
#1. Activity LED Header
The activity LED headers, designated JP26
and JP47, are used to indicate the activity
status of each SAS drive. These activity LED
headers are used by the host controller for
the SATA drives that previously had no activity status output. If using a SAS drive, and
for most SATA drives, these activity headers
are not required.The Activity LED Header is
located on the front panel. For the Activity
LED Header to work properly, connect using a
10-pin LED cable.
#2. CD-ROM/Floppy 4-Pin Connectors
The 4-pin connectors, designated JP105 and
JP106, provide power to the CD-ROM and
floppy drives. See the table on the right for
pin definitions.
