Mini-sas cable doesn't fit MDS600

I don't know what is wrong, I cannot the connector simply because it doesn't fit.

The 2 screws that overhang make it impossible to introduce it completely.

I'm using original cable (407339-B21).

I borrowed the image from a website, the connector looks the same as mine.

Where doesn't it fit? Are you connecting it in the right place?

Re: Mini-sas cable doesn't fit MDS600

It's not something you can easily mistake.

Does HP want me to force it?

No SAS cable ships standard with the MDS600. HP recommends using the shortest cables possible. However, the maximum supported cable length that can be used between SAS ports is 2.00 m (6.56 ft).

 

The sas cable that is compatible is mini-SAS 4x 2M Cable All and the model is 407339-B21 .

Please verify.

Re: Mini-sas cable doesn't fit MDS600

i think you can try remove the additional clip that you ahev on the top which is hampering the complete entry.

 

Solution

Re: Mini-sas cable doesn't fit MDS600

If i remove the screws i also need to remove another piece that gets loose, and the connector gets weak and unable to attack firmly.

 

SOLUTION: I contacted HP Support and they sent me new cables that fit.

Re: Mini-sas cable doesn't fit MDS600

Hi! Thanks for getting back with a solution.

Do the new cables have the same part numbers as the ones you got originally?

Re: Mini-sas cable doesn't fit MDS600

Old cables only had this number "407339-B21".
New cables have PN: 407344-033, and Spare PN: 408767-001

Definitely strange.

Doesn't exist in partsurfer (anymore).

Re: Mini-sas cable doesn't fit MDS600

My bad, it's 407344-003.
This time i've triple checked it.
