After installing the Back plane into one of my cases I used one of the
two single channel IDE cables Enhance
Technology included to connect the hard drive in the
top bay, leaving the second bay hard drive disconnected for the time being.
Back Plane installation complete.
powered up the computer to see what would happen. All of the LED's
on the ISWAP turned on. The top two green LEDs on the
first channel lit up. The second channel only had a
yellow LED indicating that the hard drive wasn't
connected. The top LED is fan and temperature
means that everything is working fine and red means that
there is a fan failure or that the temperature is over the
max allowed temperature.
Putting my hand up next to the back plane I was able to
feel the air being sucked in. The amount of air that it
is moving is more than both of my Cool Drive's in my server. The ISWAP
does make the machine louder because of this.
Unlocking the 2nd drive
made the led turn RED. The
flash on my digital camera washed out the LED's a lot.
So I took the picture once again without the flash.
we have Yellow/Green/RED right now for colors, when active
it gets a yellow/read color. They call it Amber. I never
really was able to get a good picture of it, but below
is the best one. It still looks more yellow / green to
me in the picture.
