 NOTE-1 J5 is the optional cache backup module connector.
        If the module is not installed in J5, a loopback plug must
        be installed in it for proper operation.
 External Status LED Connector (JP5) 
  Connector    |Indicator     |Meaning if ON
  JP5, Pin 1-2 |SCSI Activity |One (or more) of the SCSI channels
               |              |on the controller is transmitting
               |              |or receiving data.
  JP5  Pin 3-4 |PCI Activity  |The controller is transmitting or
               |              |receiving data to or from the host.
  JP5  Pin 5-6 |Write Pending |The cache memory on the DAC960 holds
               |              |data that is more current than the
               |              |data on the hard drive(s).

External LED Connectors Jumper JP5 This six pin header provides connection for three status LEDs, the odd-numbered pin is the +5V source (Pin 1, 3 and 5). An external series resistor is not required for connecting LEDs.
  DATA WILL BE LOST if the system either loses power or is reset while the Write Pending LED is ON (indicating the cache contains data not yet written to disk). To prevent loss, install the optional cache battery backup module.
