Right now I've got no way to activate the power-up for a system test (minus a jump i'm going to try at lunch). I've looked at the accessories on the SuperMicro site and see several split cable options up to 20 pins, but nothing for 24 pins.
Has anyone else landed in this situation before? Do I just go for the 20-pin adapter and hook-up what I can?
The "SuperServer 5015A-L" supermicro superserver is built from a supermicro chassis that has a 16-pin front panel cable, and a supermicro motherboard that has a 16-pint header to match. The motherboard manual shows the pinout. Click on the "manuals" link to get a downloadable copy of the motherboard manual.
