I am installing a HP P410 RRAID controller onto a HP Proliant DL320 G6. The card has two SAS ports, but I only need one. Does it matter which of the two ports I use? There is no indication on the card itself. I don't know if RAID cards work like RAM, where you're supposed to use certain ports/slots first..

The port will not have an impact. You can use either.

Thanks, I know its a basic question, but I'd rather be safe then sorry. – amazinghorse24 Feb 14 '12 at 17:03
Basic questions are often the ones that trip people up / put them off doing things. That's why its great to have a definitive answer – Joe Taylor Mar 7 '12 at 20:25
