Subject: Expansion chassis from LHO 

That's fine, we didn't actually request those. We bought and already have in hand new PCIe x4 cables for the chassis-host connection. They're 3 m copper cables, which was based on the assumption of the time that host and chassis would be installed in the same rack.

  1. Regarding the fibers - one of the fibers is pre-2012. These are known to fail (according to Rolf). One of the two that LHO shipped is from 2012 (judging by S/N, I can't find an online lookup for the serial number), the other is 2011. IIRC, Rolf offered us some fibers so we may want to take him up on that. We may also be able to use copper cables if the distances b/w server and expansion chassis are short.
