D2600 and Dual Path

Is Dual Path with cascaded JBODs supported on the D2600. If so, is there a certain controller needed?

I see that dual domain is supported with the use of a Dual domain controller (P812 or P411 according to quickspecs) and dual ported SAS hard drives.

I have a customer that is looking to setup Dual path with SATA drives and I want to confirm this. Below is a link discussing Dual path with cascaded JBOD.

Re: D2600 and Dual Path

SATA drives are single ported and therefore do not have a fail-over path intrinsic to their design. Only Dual Port (DP) SAS drives will work in the Dual Domain environment

Thanks for the reply.

My customer is interested in Dual Path and not Dual domain. I believe it is supported but was hoping someone could confirm.
