I have two Promise Smartstor 4600 DAS units that I have daisy chained using Firewire 800. The units have 2 FW800 ports each. I am doing this mainly to maximize my use of FW800 ports which my CPU has only one of.
I called Promise support and they said it isn't possible (It is, I've got it working as I write this) while in the same breath mentioning that the newer Pegasus Thunderbolt models DO support daisy chaining.
Is there an inherent danger to doing this in the long term or is Promise just using marketing-speak to get me to buy their newer product?
I've found many discussions online about this except not much about chaining RAID arrays specifically. I am looking for a definitive answer if at all possible
