OK, if you need that pdf, I found it.... ba350ugc.pdf.  It has all
the settings you need to twiddle.

The ba350 has two busses internally, which can be jumpered to one buss
which is how I have mine.  It is not intuitively obvious.  Also, you
need to use the top connector in the bay (upper left if vertical),
since the other end is autoterminated, depending on how the jumpering
is set and what plugs are inside behind the fan covers.

If you have an incoming, somewhere, I can drop that pdf there for you.
