have DL360p G8 and old MSA 60 SAS Disk enclosure

Hi,

We have DL360p G8 and old MSA 60 SAS Disk enclosure. Does DL360p support old MSA 60? I found External SAS controller for the DL 360p server. But it specification said the port speed is 6Gb/sec  SAS. However, Old MSA 60 is 3Gb/sec SAS. Is this a problem?

---Server

ProLiant DL360p G8

---Storage

418408-B21 - HP StorageWorks MSA60 Array

(Host interface 3 Gb/sec SAS )

---External SAS/SAS Controller

HP® 1 Port SAS Controller (631667-B21)

(1 x SFF-8088 6GB/s  SAS - mini-SAS external)

 

P.S. This thread has been moved from Storage>General to Disk Array. -HP Forum Moderator

You should use any disk enclosure with a HP smart array controller in general.

 

Since the MSA60 is only 3Gb/s, you better have a look at the new enclosure (D3700 e.g.) with a speed of 12 Gb/s.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Hi @ToshiNakano 

 

I meant to reply to you but lost your conversation here.  Here are a couple of things to look at that give more information:

I'll also send you a private message to see if there's something more I can help you with.
