SAS 5/i device limit?

I have a new PE2900 with a SAS 5/i Integrated (non-RAID) controller. 
Although the BIOS shows 8 device channels enabled (as does lsiutil), it 
appears that devices are only seen in the first 4 of the 8 slots. Any way 
to coerce this controller to see all 8 devices? If not, what are my best 
options? I do not need any form of RAID support. TIA,
