Do I need to buy any cables?

The strategy is:
- I have one EVA 8000 (2C6D) with command view unlimited LTU.
- I want to add 3 more disk enclosures to this System:
***The question is that do I need to buy anything more than hard drives and enclosures?

I wonder if the enclosure has the cables in its box.
please show me a reference.

Re: Do I need to buy any cables?

Looks fine to me - make sure you get the correct type of enclosure. If this is an older EVA-8000 it might be necessary to do a firmware upgrade to support the new disk drives (e.g. 1TB FATA drives). If you don't have experience with this kind of work you might want to order the installation as well.

I have done a number of installations / upgrades and all necessary cables / rack-mount components have always been in the shipping box.

Hi Alireza,

Are you sure your enclosures are brand new?
I am sure, This is impossible.Th required cables are in box!
By the way, If you do not have the cables, you have to order 324394-B21.

Re: Do I need to buy any cables?

If the new drive enclosure is going into the same enclosure then it should come with the cables, but if you spill into an adjacent rack then you need additional items. Where I am located HP requires the purchase of a minimum of four disks with each disk enclosure. If you did expand into a new rack, then you would need.
336881-B21 HP EVA CANbus Cab-to-Cab Cable
and one of the following for each disk enclosure in the adjacent rack
345580-B21 Cable Kit, Expansion Cab Drive Shelf
and of course then you would need to have the proper PDUs for the rack.

If it were me I'd get my salesman to earn his commission dollars by telling ME if cables were needed...
Have fun,
