Re: MSA60 want to expand by D2600

a D2600 is not an expansion shelve - it has its own smart array controller (P121 W 256MB cache if my memory is right.

 

So no, you would need a expansion shelf for the MSA60 see quickspec for optional hardware http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12627_na/12627_na.PDF

Re: MSA60 want to expand by D2600

Do you have any more details about the P121? I cannot find anything about it. Is that one also installed in the D2700?

Quickspecs says it has "6Gb SAS IO units".

 

The D2600 can be daisy-chained - so if you have a D2600 you can expand the D2600 with more than one D2600 behind it -> an expansion shelf.

 

The D2600 is connected to a smart array controller in a server, it's in that controller that you create the RAID.
