First of all, I should caution that this is about the most generic error
imaginable, a command timeout, so I'd caution against assuming that any
other reports of the same message are due to the same cause.

Is it always the same ports?

7 drives is a fair number, are you sure your PSU can handle it? These
kinds of problems often turn out to be cabling issues, insufficient
power, etc.
