I design a SAS board that supports 4 hard drives. This board is cabled to a 4-port SAS controller. My question is:
Does port 0 on the controller have to be connected to hard drive 0 on my board, port 1 to hard drive 1, port 2 to hard drive 2, and so on?
or can I just connect port 0 to any hard drive to optimize routing on my board? I read the SAS standard spec, but it doesn't mention any specific connection scheme.
