For PCIe/NVMe connections, use the appropriate U.2 Enabler Cable to enable connection to the backplane connectors, as shown in the following
figure. The U.2 Enabler Cable routes the REFCLK, sidebands, and PCIe signals to the appropriate pins on the backplane connector. Different U.2
Enabler Cables are available, depending on the backplane connector type. Using standard 12Gb/s SAS cables for NVMe connections might result in
damage to the PCIe adapter or the drive.
