    SATA controllers are not compatible with SAS drives. However the opposite is true: you can use SATA drives on a SAS controller.

    My Xserve 2009 has the optional Raid card, and I believe it is SAS controller no?

    No idea what's in there. If it is SAS, then it may be that you currently have SATA drives. Even many of the new controllers don't like a mix of SAS and SATA.
